I see kids looking at the Transformers, and at the Star Wars figures and that does my heart good. For some reason I was hoping this thread would be about children actually being interested in GI Joes. Star Wars and Transformers have cartoons, commercials and big movies behind them while Joe hasn't had anything so far. I'm so glad that the movie is coming out to spur their interest...

Kids are all over Bakugan, Star Wars, and Transformers at my Target. The other boys toys not so much.

Believe it or not (I'm walking on air!?) but I actually saw not too long ago two young boys getting Modern Joes. This was at TRU.
AND there was a little kid arguing with his mother about army-building! I actually heard her say "you have enough clonetroopers" and he was haggling with her offering to do different chores around the house. This was at Target on a different occasion.

Transformers are not as cool as Joe.
You should have slapped him.

Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.

i was at target about a week ago, and i was looking at the back of a bumblebee figure (voyager or whatever... TF sizes are like starbucks to me)
and a kid comes around the corner and said to his, aunt? i guess? "TRANSFORMERS! here they are!" as i glanced up, he was reaching for the bumblebee in my hand! hahahaha! he was about 8 or 9 and should have known better but i just smiled and let go. his aunt apologized and told him "you dont just take things from people! give that back!" i laughed and said
"oh no, its his now, i insist. i was just as excited about transformers when i was his age, and i still am. glad to see kids still playing with them."
he smiled at me and said "thank you!" i shook his hand and said "no, thank YOU, sir!"
stuff like that makes my day.
