Give me your face and tell me that you love me.

Shortpacked!: Long, long ago...

I went back and got that Robot Heroes set that I'd passed on before!  See, though the packaging claims the helicopter guy is Blackout, it lies.  It is lying packaging.  The character is clearly Grindor, who appears unnamed in Revenge of the Fallen.

(Blackout is dead, after all.  The first movie very importantly killed him!)

Hasbro was kind enough to pack BlackoutGrindor with a double-sworded Optimus Prime.  And by "kind," I mean "brutal."  Poor Grindor.  All you ever wanted to do was exterminate the human race!  What did you ever do to deserve this kind of treatment?

Anyway, what this means is that I now have my Revenge of the Fallen forest battle all assembled and ready to go.  I can put the "Forest Battle" track from the ROTF score into my Frenzy CD player and let the imagination fly.

Why doesn't my down-arrow key work?

Very annoying.
