Hello Toy, May I See Your License?

I’ve always been a fan of unlicensed toys and action figures. And last week, in a liquor store at Rockwell and Lawrence, Megan and I came across a product simply labeled “Candy & Toys.”

The “Toy” inside looks mysteriously like Optimus Prime from “Transformers.” But, Optimus Prime has a red body and blue legs, whereas this gentleman has a blue body and red legs. So obviously this is Bloptimus Grime, from “Transhifters.” That takes care of any potential legal issues.

As a side note, one of the candies inside was made by the ever-so-famous Copper Kettle Candy Co. Check out their beautifully crafted website here (which I guess was designed by a thalidomide baby).

Also, the website on the packaging ( hasn't existed since 2007.

Now if you’ll excuse me, Bloptimus and I have a galaxy to save…
