It’s day two of my reign as “How’s It Going?” curator, and I’ve already broken out the toys. Welcome back to our daily open thread.

Yesterday I talked about my bed desk, the relatively small space that serves as my work/living space. It’s stacked with wires and electronics, game consoles and gadgets, but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for toys. Colorful pieces of sculpted plastic, diecast metal, and puffy little plushies make me happy. There’s a lot of bad in the world, but there are also people who make Hot Wheels cars, design Transformers like Earthrise Cliffjumper and Cyberverse’s two-headed Rack’n’Ruin. There are people filling strawberry-colored Story of Seasons plush cows with stuffing. See that parrot? That’s a BeastBox from 52Toys, my latest toy obsession. Someone out there figured out how to transform a robot parrot into a cube.

It makes me so happy knowing all of that is going on. My little desk friends remind me every day.

I’ve been watching Chris McFeely’s series The Basics, which is about Transformers characters, lore, toylines, history, and concepts. I love it, and its been a great insight for someone who has been a more than casual fan of Transformers since G1 was on tv, but who hasnt been much into the later series and incarnations. The Lost Light storyline sounds just incredible. I called up my parents the other day to make sure they still have my Transformers from when I was a kid. They do, and I hope to get them when I can finally see my parents again. I did have to check after the incident of when my mom sold all of my original TMNT toys. That was a very dark day.
