Definitely more than meets the eye.

So my brother John’s been visiting the past week, and he brought over the new Barricade Transformer from Target. The car’s a Mustang Saleen and is super cool, the only problem is that once you transform this thing into the robot, it’s absolutely impossible to transform it back to the car.

I’m not kidding. It is seriously impossible to complete the simple task of transforming Barricade from CAR to ROBOT without something sticking out in the wrong place. If you can do it, tell me how to do it. I’m not kidding. This thing is driving us nuts.

So now I’m wondering if it’s because we’re old. I bet if I gave this thing to some kid, he’d transform it back right away. But I bet if he gave me the Rubick’s cube, well, forget it. He could do the Rubick’s cube faster than I could.

But I could still run faster.

Well . . . scratch that too.
