At first I was against animated Lugnut. He seemed overly simple and colored like fruit snacks.
But lots of pictures and glowing reviews made me give him a second thought, and that’s all the collector impulse needed to turn it into a full on craving.
Unfortunately, he was officially on the ‘Matt Can No Have’ list that I asked my future Mrs. to impose on me. There are cases where that list gets smudged a bit (Sideswipe was on it, but she didn’t feel right having Sunstreaker without Sideswipe. Woohoo!) but we try to stick to it.
For instance, spending the better part of a week making fun of animated Jetfire and Jetstorm means that though I’m mildly interested in them now, they’re still on the list (with a captital ‘NO, they look like Power Rangers.’)
So, how to get Lugnut withut paying money? Trade!
But, I still have the big blue monkey and I now have a Lugnut. It’s been a few months, but K-mart had a sale and I really needed him for a guide.
Oh yeah. LUGNUT GUIDE NEXT WEEK! :D
