Sometimes you just can’t help yourself. Before you even realize it you’ve hit the Buy Now button, the money’s flown out of your PayPal account, and you just pray you made the right purchase decision. Well in this case there was absolutely no question. The moment I saw the special 35th Anniversary Transformers G-Shock package (DW-6900TF-SET) I knew I had to own it. Perpetual Girl just laughed. What could she do?! Being a Japan-only offering it took a bit of doing, but today the package arrived and I transformed my first Optimus Prime in over 30 years!
For those of us that grew up in the 80s, the Transformers were an institution. Autobots vs. Decepticons. Megatron, leader of the bad guys transformed into a pistol and Optimus Prime, king of the good guys transformed into a cool semi truck, another favorite among us young boys of the 80s! Now that I’m all grown up (Pertual Girl might argue that point) and passionate about watches, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to own an Optimus Prime with the heart of a G-Shock. Enjoy the unboxing. ????
