Cybertronian Megatron and a can of poop

Yes.  You read that title correctly.  But you will have to wait until after we spotlight ol’ Megsy(come on, he would kill me if I didn’t feature him first).

Shortly before the turn of the new year(December 30, if I remember correctly), I found myself at Wal-Mart, like I so frequently do.  Any trip to Wal-Mart is not complete without a quick trip to the toy section.  Now, while I was out Christmas shopping, I had seen a handful of recent Transformers I was interested in.  I was Christmas shopping, so I couldn’t be selfish and spend my dough all on myself(I did get Rodimus Minor though).  The figures I was interested in are as follows…Transformers Generations Dirge, Red Alert, Cybertronian Soundwave and Cybertronian Megatron.  If I had the money I would have gotten all four.  So Christmas passed, and I found myself checking the pegs at Wal-Mart.  They had a bunch of Cybertronian Bumblebees, two Thrusts, and mixed in with these was a lone Cybertronian Megatron.  I didn’t even have to think about it.  I grabbed it quickly and proceeded to the check-out.

I have always thought Megatron was one of the coolest looking Transformers.  As a matter of fact, my younger brother and I both got a Megatron for Christmas in ’84 or ’85.  I loved that figure!  I would love to add that figure to my collection, but a good complete version would run me at least $80.  I don’t have that type of cash to spend on a single figure, so obviously I couldn’t put it on this years collecting goals list.  This one’s robot mode is very reminiscent of the G1 version, and it was only $9.

Megatron came carded in his robot mode, and he looks very nice right out of the package.  He is gray wih black and red, and he has some nice translucent purple spots on him, most noticeably on the spots below his knees.

His face is almost exactly the same as his G1 counterpart.  This and the arm mounted cannon is what made me want this figure.  His alternate mode is nice looking and transformation is pretty smooth.  For a level 3 difficulty, it was surprisingly easy.

This figure is worth the price, and I give him a 5 out of 5.

Now we’ll get to the part of the post that grabbed your attention in the title.  Poop in a can.  Here’s the low down.

A couple of week’s ago, my wife and I had the pleasure of sorting through a few boxes of “junk”.  Most of the stuff was older kitchen ware and knick knacks.  As we searched I came across the one item I claimed as mine.

Ogopogo Poo, in a can.  Ogopogo is basically British Columbia’s Loch Ness Monster.  For more information on Ogopogo, click here.

It does sound like there is something in it, but I do not want to ruin this treasure by opening it.  The contents sounds somewhat sandy and somewhat solid.  There is no date of any kind anywhere on the can or it’s label, so I have no idea how old this thing is.  I do know that is just weird enough for me to like.  If anybody knows anything about this, please leave info in the comments.

Here is what is printed on it’s label.  Are they trying to say that this is a can of real bull shit?  I’m not opening it to find out.

 Looks like someone else has laid claim to this mysterious souvenir.

  1. that was nine bucks well spent- he looks cool!
    as far as the can of poo… that is certainly odd. some things exist in this world that defy explanation, ya know 😀

    • I saw the canned poo, and I looked at my wife and I said “It’s mine!” It’s a neat souvenir, but I can’t dig up any info on the damn thing. And Megatron looks completely bad-ass.

    Nice looking Megatron Jason but the can of monster poo is just awesome! Just sit it out when you have guess over and watch everyone start talking about it and shaking the can lol.

    • You better believe when I have company over I’ll bring the canned poo out. They’ll either think it’s hilarious, or that I’m a complete nut! At least Megatron thinks it’s cool.

  3. I am fascinated with the can of Ogopogo poo. I don’t know if I could resist the tempation to open it up. Why does Ogopogo only come out between 10:30 AM and 1 PM?

    • I have no clue! Maybe that’s the perfect time of day to see this beast. But more than likely, it’s just a business ploy to get visitors to that area at peak hours. I’ve never seen anything like it. I absolutely love it!

  4. Hey man, just stumbled over here from X-E on the promise of canned poo. I can only say one thing: OPEN IT! Please for the love of God, crack that bitch open. I have to know what’s in there and ebay is giving me nothing.

    • I would love to open it. But that would mean ruining it. If it were possible for me to find another one, I wouldn’t even question it. A sealed can looks better in my collection of stuff, where as an open can just makes me look like a trash collector(although I do have an opened old-school Pepsi can).

  5. This is the coolest. Why? Cause I lived there, in the Okanagan. I never knew the Ogopogo legend was large enough to create souvenirs. Very Nice.

    This post actually makes me quite upset. My sister and I actually started a business selling Ogopogo Poo (jelly beans with an awesome label) 9 years ago and recently decided to terminate the business as we are now continuing on different ventures. We used the profits of our Ogopogo Poop to help others with charities like UNICEF in the beginning and then actually going to Mexico and helping communities that live and selvage off the Dump. I’ve never seen the Ogopogo Poo before and I wonder how they are using their profits. Just wanted to let you know that this idea was stolen from two sisters that started the business when they were 9 and 12 years old! 🙂
