I love days like these.
When I was doing my weekend toy shopping at CSC (China Square Central), I went into a shop and looked around like any other time. There was an extension at the corner of the shop (it acts like a little storeroom)and I went in to take a look.
Right at the corner, stood The Claw! Yes the machine in the Toy Story movie which house all the cute aliens!
The shop owner told me that it was a defect piece and the claw mechanism was not working. He told me I could have it for $5 and if I could fix it I had a great deal.
Damn! Even if I don't fix it I thought this was a cool display piece. I collect those Toy Story's aliens and they are so going into this!
When I went home to try it, the mechanism was working fine. The only problem was that the chain had broken off. When I have the time, I think it would be an easy fix.
For now,this will be the home for my collection of the Toy Story's aliens.
