So let’s say you’re going to a midnight game release and you have a few hours to kill. Obviously you can do something productive or if you’re like me, you might end up at the bar for two plus hours. If you’ve gone that far, you may wander over to Wal-Mart after you check in at the game store. While at the Walmart you just might, and I don’t recommend it, see a bag of bacon ranch popcorn and think it is a good idea to buy it. This really isn’t a good idea, but we’re going to chalk it up to all that beer. Finally, when you are leaving said Wal-Mart you may come across a crane game full of pure 80’s nostalgia.
If you couldn’t tell by my subtle storytelling, this is exactly what happened to me early this month. That pure nostalgia came in the form of plush Ghostbusters. I didn’t try to win any of these guys, which is probably a good thing. I’ve read elsewhere that there is supposedly a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in the line too, but I haven’t seen it. I am impressed that Winston is included in the line. Still I have to wonder how many kids are ligning up for these? For those not skilled at the crane game, I’m sure these things are showing up on ebay.
