    Thanks for the reminder Dain.

    Actually, it was just last month when I got my hands on an original C9 Condition Prowl, completing my G1, 1984 Collection.

    These recirculations are great, but I only collect the vintage die cast.

    I have the entire first year all nicely preserved in Ziplock freezer bags. I also threw in the `85 Shockwave and `86 Reflector, since they were in the pilot episodes.

    :)

    Now, you kids shouldn't be drinking coffee; It'll stunt your growth.

    Cigarettes are much more healthier...

    Yes - but Coke was the only cola worthy enough to be endorsed by Max Headroom.
    Max Headroom, people!!!
    Need I say more?

    What I dislike is negative marketing.

    McDonalds will have an ad telling you something like "It's a good time for the great taste of McDonalds". Burger King will have an ad telling you that McDonalds sucks and only a fool would eat there when they could be at BK.

    Turns me off. For years, I didn't eat at BK because of their consistent negative ad techniques (then of course I ate there and found I was justified to stay away).

    Pepsi does the same thing which makes me instantly suspicious and wary of their product.

    You know, my hatred of Pepsi just went up a notch after scoping out those kick axe color cans they made for Episode 2 that they only released in Japan...

    Now we know the difference between Coke and Pepsi as the long version of the song is:

    Pee is for Pepsi, that's good enough for me!
    Pepsi Pepsi Pespi starts with Pee (as a main ingredient).

    All I know is thank God I don't drink pee.

    Coke to Pepsi is like Regular to Menthol.

    And unless your really desperate, you shouldn`t have Menthol...

    :p
