ToyFarce News: Debate - Who Should Get It? "I Had It As A Child" vs "I Didn't Have It As A Child"

A few days ago, in the toy section of a Walmart in West Virginia, an argument between 2 strangers sparked a debate about nostalgia and retro figures: One of the 2 strangers claimed he deserved the figure (a G.I.Joe Classified Retro Destro, in that situation), because he had it as a child, so he had the nostalgia for it and wanted it more, while the second said that since he didn't have it as a kid, he missed out on said nostalgia and should be the one getting it. ToyFarce investigated...

Both men arrived at the exact same time in front of the coveted action figure, and both extended their hands at the same time, and grabbed it from each side simultaneously, so the only way to decide who gets it would rely on verbal jousting. Here is the first person's argument: "Aww man, I had that figure when I was a kid! I loved it so much, I used to bring it everywhere with me. Grabbing a new improved version of it in a retro packaging would really make my day, and I would be really happy, with all those nostalgic feelings...". The second man counter-argued: "Dude, you cannot believe how much I wanted that figure when I was a kid, but my parents never got it for me. Now that I'm an adult, I can actually get it for myself, and seeing it right here definitely makes me feel all sorts of things. I need that figure...".

Before the argument reached a conclusion, a Walmart employee came and said they had one more in the back, and that he could go and get it for them. Both men would get to go home happy. A third man came and said "Hey, do you have more of those? I just want to flip it on ebay...", and was told to go kick rocks.
