How to become a single parent

Remember this couple, where the guy refused to stop buying Funko POP!s and pissed off his girlfriend? Well, good news: it's not always the collectors who are the a-holes in a relationship.

Another AITA post has come up, this time from a girl who didn't approve of her boy's hobby:

My boyfriend has always called himself "A Kid at Heart". He collects toys, from quite a few different series. Wresting, TMNT, X Men, anime, etc.

We're in our 20's.

But they aren't for collecting purposes, they're all out of the box. And...He plays with them. Whenever he thinks i'm asleep, i can hear him mimicking the voices of the characters or doing commentary and i'll peek in the room and see him actually playing with them. That's another thing, it's a small apartment and he's got a whole room just for them. And a whole dresser full of parts and cards. Their guns and weapons and such. But they're confined to that room, none of them are anywhere else. When he comes home from work, it's one of the first things he does, play with the toys. We get packages from Ebay or Amazon almost twice a week. But he still makes time for me.

I thought it was cute and endearing at first. But we've got a baby on the way. And my friends are laughing at me. "Sounds like you're dating a 12 year old."

Transformers BotBots Hal A. Peno exclusive review

In 2019 (what was known as "the before times"), it seemed like a real great idea to pack 135,000 people shoulder-to-shoulder in a poorly ventilated building where you could barely move and had to shout directly at each other's faces in order to be heard. Today, the very notion of that should give you the heebie-jeebies. The cancellation of the 2020 con season does have one advantage: it allows us to finish the reviews of last year's Transformers BotBots "Con Crew" exclusive set. We're already done with the Meet n' Greets and the Line League, so today let's wrap up Fantastic Fuelers.

Preorder NECA's TMNT movie Tokka and Rahzar

You heard right: NECA's making Tokka and Rahzar, and you can get yours now!

Rather than repeat the colossal eff-ups they've had for their past couple Turtle exclusives, NECA is finally being smart about this set: from now until this Friday (August 7), you can just go to NECA's online store and place your order. Preorders will determine how many are made, so this is your only chance to get them.

You've got a week, but don't drag your heels. If you want to show NECA the value in making toys available this way instead of the blind-rush lottery they've been using, now is your chance.
