A little while ago I wrote about my enjoyment of Tristar's Obak set and in the comments section of that post Dayf made a comment about how he would have "bought a blaster if Tristar hadn't screwed 'em up." I didn't really know what that meant because I hadn't seen an Obak blaster in person.
Well, I stumbled upon one today and I dig what Dayf was preachin'. I snapped a photo of the blaster in question:
$20 for 4 packs. 4 packs? $5 a pack for retail? Loose [and probably card searched] retail packs are $3 an inch away from the blaster display. Although, you do get a retail exclusive Obama card with the blaster. Don't get me wrong, I love Obama as much as the next guy...as long as the next guy is Michelle Obama. I've drunk the Kool-Aid...you with me? But still this card means nothing to me. Less than nothing considering it's the same photo of Obama with just a different background.
