Frantically he asked...

When I told him we did not he said "Shit" and hurried out of the store.

  1. Just so I know, What replacement heads do you sell?

  2. I love the ones that are a little slice of someone's life that wants to tell a great story, but one we'll never know.

    How old is this guy?

    1. I agree, I need a post-script on this guy!

  3. Is there a market for spare Ninja Turtle Parts? I went nuts buying them at yard sales a few years ago and while they aren't in collectors condition they certainly have heads.

  4. Damn, I think there's still a box full of 'em in my parents attic. If they were old Transformers I'd be more motivated to go and get them.

  5. This is what happens when you don't take the guy up on his offer to sell you most of an action figure.

  6. Sure it was his cousins' figure. I can see it in his eyes

  7. I like that he asked as though any store readily sells replacement heads for action figures.

  8. We got a call one time at my comic shop. "Please help me. Do you have the 25th Anniversary Metal Voltron statue? My husband's is broken and he's going to be so upset when he comes home."

    I checked and told her we did not, and asked how the statue got broken. "Uh... I sort of got pissed at him and threw it across the room. I can't find the head for the blue lion now."

    D'oh!

  9. And this is why you shouldn't perform magic tricks with someone elses property

  10. Good job, Mr. Tim- now the poor kid is fucked!

    And if you ignore the word balloon- it seems as if he just bit the head off of the figure and ate it... which is probably what really happened anyways...

  11. In that kid's defense, those turtle heads were REALLY chewable. They practically begged for it.

  12. I REALLY want to know the other side of that stroy.

  13. Now that is funny.

  14. I find it amusing that he doesn't ask about a replacement figure, just the head.

  15. Weirdly enough, I had a nightmare last night that a magician was teaching me card tricks and then he took my mint-in-box 1987 Michaelangelo figure and started cutting in half!
