My wife and I had some time to ourselves this weekend as well as my mom kept the girls overnight. First time we've been away from both of them at the same time and while we missed them, it was nice having a chance to do...well whatever we wanted!
A lot of stores were sticking to the street date of the 28th for the new G.I. Joe Retaliation toys so I didn't find anything until today. While my wife hit Old Navy I hit a Super Target and found a few new Joe toys. I'm not buying nearly as many toys these days - especially Joes, but a few of the Cobra items piqued my interest once I saw the promo pics online awhile back. Plus w/ the movie being pushed back to March 2013 and the rumor about Hasbro asking retailers to return their toy stock of Retaliation toys I figured if I want 'em I better grab 'em while I can. So I grabbed the Cobra Fangboat, a Red Ninja and Cobra Trooper. Expect to see reviews of all of these at some point in the near future.
Lastly I made a "emergency" trip to Walmart this evening to grab some dry cat food. I had previously bought some food from Walmart that was a $1.50 a bag...and my cat wouldn't eat it. I left it in his feeder dish for several days and I don't think he touched it. I felt bad so I grabbed a bag of food for him this evening since I forgot to earlier today. This Walmart had finished up their new reset in the action figure aisle and I saw a shopping cart of trash and broken down boxes. In the cart was this small Transformers KRE-O signage. I looked around for an employee to ask if I could take it. Shockingly there wasn't an employee around - so I took it. Held it in my hand as I grabbed my wallet to pay for the cat food...cashier never said a thing. Not quite sure what I'm going to do w/ it yet, but I've amassed a small collection of Transformers promotional pieces now.
All in all it was a great weekend. Thankfully it'll make for a short work week - especially for me since I'm calling it a day early on Friday so my wife doesn't have to spend her 30th birthday all alone.
