I am in awe and shock and other descriptions of delight I find difficult to articulate now - because I am at a loss for words.
Please pardon me if this post comes across as somewhat gibberish like...
I received a package from a buddy today expecting it to contain a few Raiden parts that I'm missing, but these parts came in a packing box. The declaration said "toy car". I thought it very strange and curious, but did not have much time to think about today due to my extremely busy workload.
I came home, had dinner, showered and then sat down to open the package. When I saw it inside the bubble wrap, I said out loud "No, it cannot be. No, it cannot be."
That changed to "Oh my god. It is. Oh my god."
I stared at it for 30 mins before I regained my senses (a little).
I was gifted a G1 pre-rub Bluestreak MISB.
I was given this piece that is so close to heart by a good friend and buddy. Of all the G1 pieces that I may one day decide to get MISB, a Bluestreak would be at the very pinnacle of my list. He is one of the select few G1 pieces that has kept a very steady place in my heart since 1984.
I'm still in disbelief. My good friend is too generous. I'm very delighted but I don't know what to do, I don't know why I deserve it either. I am just very happy.
E said that I should 'appreciate it as a gift from one good friend to another' and I will.
I started taking photos uncontrollably... and I'm posting a lot of them up here...
Please enjoy, one of my absolute favourite G1 characters and toys...
A very heartfelt thank you to, you, my good buddy, [anonymous].
(I would undoubtedly write more about this, but right now, I am just enjoying this slice of childhood once more...
