Ah, it's been a long time since I collected Yu-Gi-Oh cards. It's been just as long a time since I've eaten McDonalds. It's been about 4-5 years I guess for each. Well, I guess I could break the streak now. Very Happy I could use some Chicken Selects (even though Chik-Fil-A is so much better) and I haven't had my hands on a Yu-Gi-Oh card in ages. Maybe I'll stop by Mickey D's when I see the new Rocky in a few hours. Wink

Ahh, if only there was a Kaiba toy. Razz

These toys are kinda pathetic, though. Edo, I mean "Aster" in particular looks awful:

It's not the toys I'm interested in...it's the cards. :3

They all look equally pathetic IMO. You'd think McDonald's would at least give them a decent paint job so that they wouldn't look like freaking bootlegs.

As for the cards, if they're decent, then I might take a look. (I play Yugioh, but I've only been freeloading cards for the past two years because I'm cheap. Surprised )

Yes, it's still quite popular. Not as much as it used to be, but there are still a lot of official events being planned, most of which attracting more than 500 people.

All the more reason to go get Happy Meals again. And then when you get the cards, try and sell them on ebay, for 2 bucks.

WINBEAMS, my friend. Winbeams.

If they ever passed out deck staples, the Happy Meal would sell out. Laughing

I was at the McDonald's inside the Wal-Mart just across the Queensway from the St. Laurent Centre on Tuesday evening and it took around three minutes for the three-year old in line ahead of me (with his parents, obviously) to choose between the Yu-Gi-Oh and Littlest Pet Shop Happy Meal premiums (I think he went with Littlest Pet Shop, ultimately). All the time, I was thinking, "Yu-Gi-Oh? Aren't they about three years too late for that fad? Is that kid even old enough to remember it?"

Also, I find it amusing that a character that PETA enlisted for a campaign against animal cruelty just two years ago is now shilling for Mickey D's.
