(Also if McDonald's actually transformed into a robot like that I'd of motherfucking jacked the bitch and gone on a downtown rampage.. Or more likely piloted the thing to another McDonald's to go through the drive-thru with it just to fuck with their heads in an extra special way.)
Personally it is my belief that whomever was in charge of marketing for McDonald's for this time and responsible for the Power Rangers Pogs was a marketing God and genius. These things hit and sold like motherfucking gold laced crack cocaine. I specifically remember the gauntlet of Power Rangers toys and merchandising that McDonald's acquired because their offering them turned the local McDonald's into a fucking gang-war complete with soccer moms decking their mini-vans out road-warriors style, guerrilla war-fare and business men shanking one another with executive pens. Why? ...Honestly? We all thought the fuckers would be worth something.
It wasn't until recently that I was sorting through my toy drawer ( NOT DIRTY! No, really. ) that I found this old decrepit and partially ripped bag. Curious as to why the hell such an old and cloth-like paper bag had been pushed to the back of the drawer, I brought it out and glanced inside. Lo and behold a mountain of mint-condition wafers of Poggy goodness glanced back at me, I'd forgotten about these.
And moving on from inedible Power Rangers Power Coins? ( Are they inedible? Has anyone actually tried? Mhh.. You know that Zedd coin is kind of making me hankering for bacon.. I wonder... ) we move to my culinary creation for the day; Hottouingu.
Commonly called 'hot wings' in the United States, they've recently become a small pub-staple in Japan along with the usual Yakitori and the like. Of course cooked specifically Japanese they're first marinated over-night in a bath of their hot bbq sauce, then come cooking time a mixture of flour and spices are added to create a batter that shouldn't crisp too much but should be just right cooked into the meat, they're then pan-fried, and finally moved from the pan-fry to a dry-pan where they're further cooked until done ( extra sauce being added during this step. ) when you're finally done you serve them up, top them with a tiny bit more of bbq sauce and dish the.. Uh.. Dish.. Personally I think it all came out rather nicely and with a great display. I'm very happy with it.
