Hit the Spectrum again for lunch, and walked up to the ATM next to the movie theater. There was one guy already waiting in line for the 8:00 showing of Transformers
…two days from now.
Edit: I stand corrected. They’re showing an advanced screening tonight, so he was only in line about 7½ hours ahead. Not terribly noteworthy, at that point.
I found this ad from 1972 while looking through old comic books. At first I just found it interesting in a proto-Transformers sort of way, but then I looked more closely at it:
It actually uses the phrasing, “more (car) than meets the eye!”
Is it just the fact that I was up way too late last night, or does the term “neocon” sound like a Transformers faction?
According to the Transportation Security Administration‘s list of Permitted and Prohibited Items for airline passengers, “Toy Transformer Robots” are on the approved list of carry-on items.
Which kind of makes you wonder: Before this version of the list was written up, was someone kept off a plane for carrying Megatron or something?
