Stop the Universe, There Are Glorious Forces at Work Here
Theologians will be debating the existence of a higher power until the end of time. But this weekend, I received evidence that there is indeed a greater power at work here. And apparently, they’re watching me.
It is as if the universe coalesced into a single item that now exists solely for me. I can perceive no other reason why this toy exists other than some cosmic force peered into my brain and made it a reality.
How else can you explain Hasbro making a legitimate, fully transforming action figure of Dispensor, the Mountain Dew Transformer from the first movie.
I’m speechless. Both because of the awesomeness of this toy and out of fear that someone really is reading my thoughts. Why else would Hasbro make a Dispensor action figure seven years after the first movie came out?! He was on the screen for 10 seconds! And it’s not like he’s some new commercial tie-in.
They changed the name from ‘Mountain Dew’ to ‘Mood Whiplash’ on the toy, so it’s not like Hasbro is getting any advertising money.
So why make this action figure unless someone had recently read my List of the 6 Most Underrated Movie Transformers!? Dispensor is #1 on that list! But I only wrote that list a week ago! Someone knew in advance how much this character makes me giggle! His mere existence is cause for such giddiness!
And now he’s a real toy!
What are you trying to tell me, universe?! That you’re listening to me, you’re really listening? Well then, message received! Loud and clear!
