After I dunno how many years of keeping my eyes peeled, I finally snagged my Killer Tomato holy grail — the Missing Tomato Link — before someone else did!
Yes, he’s insanely rare. Yes, I opened the package. No, I don’t feel the least bit of shame or guilt. This thing is too awesome to leave sealed in a plastic prison.
He has one of the coolest head sculpts of the toy line, and he’s also one of the ultra-rare “walking” tomatoes with arms and legs. More importantly, he comes with everyone’s Killer Tomatoes waifu, Tara Boumdeay!
He’s actually listed as a good guy, a misunderstood monster of vast intelligence and class. Or something to that effect. Either way, he sure has a thing for Tara. And who wouldn’t, with a butt like that?
He happily joins the Killer Tomatoes collection. Now all I’m missing is Ultimato, the rarest of them all. Even if I never find him, I’m content to finally have Link and Tara at last.
When I found out about this set, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. It’s surprisingly small — I thought it’d be around the size of those water tank games for kids, but it’s about the size of a coffee mug — and has a delightful little color palette. It depicts a beachside diving shop with upstairs bedroom and bathroom, a patio table with umbrella, a beach chair parked under a sweet palm tree, and the main attraction: an undersea kingdom that allows Polly and friends to swim when filled with water. The squeeze bulb on the side of the tank brings the little grotto to life.
Mine is not complete, however: it’s missing is the dolphin of its namesake. But whatever, I still managed to have more fun than a grown-ass man should legally have when playing with Polly Pocket.
