Not for nothingÖ Havenít posted a lot on this site, but Iíve checked it about three times a day for one and half years. Joined a couple of months ago. Maybe its not my place but-
ROC is here, and our beloved 25th is quickly fading. It will never be like it was when it came out, as it never was like it was when we were little, the first time around.
But just for a secondÖ remember when you first joined this site. The first time you opened up your first 25th Snake Eyes and smelling that plastic. Checking Sightings in your state to find the first couple of waves. Your first custom. Your first variant. The Doc debacle. Those damn DVD packs. My Bazooka is still so damn lonely. Albert, where are you?
It was a good run. Iím not giving up at all, just being nostalgic, and thankful.
Sure, Hasbro made some ridiculous mistakes. But they brought them back, and we were excited. Pretty cool. Our old backyard friends, back from the dead. Like Pet Semetary-they look a little different, its not really them, but it does the job for now.
Thanks Tankers, thanks Hasbro- you done good.
And now I knowÖ

Sometimes we forget that only something that gave us this much fun and excitement can get us so worked up and disappointed.
Thanks for the help in reflecting on the times we've her and the fun we share.
Life has been hard this past 2 years, and Ive chosen Joes as that one personal, selfish thing to enjoy alone during the tiny moments not given to work and family, and it has been a great distraction. It brought back some childhood joy at the perfect time for me and hitting this site has made these times not so lonely. So kudos to Hasbro, and thanks to you all!
