Howling Monkey Energizing Cola

February 23, 2008

Howling Monkey I really don’t have anything bad to say about this. I really, really like the picture on the can. It tastes like the German cola flavored candy which is not so great in candy form, but I like it in this application. It doesn’t try to taste like Coke or Pepsi, so that’s good. It’s got no sugar but yet is still delicious. It’s strange. It’s also an engery drink with the typical energy ingredients. You should definitely buy this stuff. I got it in a 6 pack for $3.60 at Big Lots but the price on each can says “$.99MSRP” but that’s still dang cheap. Not much else to say about it, try it for yourself. 9/10


Super Amazing Gundam Knock-off Fun Tiem!1!

February 23, 2008

Gundam has some pretty sweet looking robots so who wouldn’t want to copy them. I mean, they’re Japanese robots with guns and swords, there’s not much stuff in the world that’s cooler than that. Except Ninja Gundams….. But anyway.

So we saw these two Gundam knock-offs at Big Lots called SUPERDUTY HERO. I was excited, they looked silly and cheap and knock-offy.gundamknockoff1 gundamknockoff2So we got both of them at $5 each which was way too much. You’ll see why. We got them in the car and opened them and almost immediately, I kid you not, the right hand (the only one that could hold weapons) broke off completely. On both of them! So there goes most of the fun. But what was scarier was that they felt almost as light as a few paper clips. I was incredibly disturbed seeing as how we’d just spent $10 on them, and there was hardly anything there. Kudos to the company that made these though for tricking us into actually buying them. Dirty commies.

I don’t know much about Gundam but I’m pretty sure these are direct replicas of characters from the show, judge for yourself. The big weapons which look like a funky sniper rifle and a gatling gun don’t fit in any part of them but hey, free plastic guns!gundamknockoff3 gundamknockoff4They have holes in them like sound is supposed to come out of them and the gatling gun has like, LED things on it but I couldn’t find any place to open them to put batteries or anything of the like in them, which was very sad. All in all I got ripped off but I’m not gonna waste gas returning them. Oh and every part of them pretty much breaks off at the slightest amount of pressure so they’re not even good to play with. 4/10

I hope you enjoyed this review and learned something. That something probably sounds like, “If it looks like it’s a cheap piece of crap, it probably is.”. Drop a comment plz.
