If you leave your mass graves open for random people to lie naked in, you're doing it wrong.

@  Paladin : (05 May 2016 - 12:53 PM)

isn't "friendzone" a made-up thing creepers use to comfort themselves when they get shot down by women who wouldn't willingly lie naked with them in a mass grave?

I've heard a lot of speculation about the botshots and the game aspect so I thought I'd give a picture of the back and the general idea behind it.

Each bot has a spinner in his chest with 3 faces. A fist power, a blaster power, and a melee weapon power. You spin these around, choosing which face you want to appear. You then crash the figures into each other where they pop up into bot mode. Fist beats melee, melee beats blaster, blaster beats fist. In case both threw a particular one, the highest power number wins.

That was my Toys R Us store that I work at in Topeka, KS. The red guy on the cardback is my Botshot, Sentinal Prime.

There was only one of him in the case. He's transparent red plastic and turns into a little fire truck.

heheheh. We got a truck today.

Back when I was working overnights the week before christmas, I made sure every box of Transformers we had was put out. That way we had no backstock whatsoever coming in to the new year. You're seeing the dividends of that work. icon-arcee.gif
