OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI love Transformers… maybe a tad too much. The original cartoon had the “it” factor.

(Another review initially posted at Turquoise Version. Check that joint out already.)

Bulletto is the Clint Eastwood of the Moofia. As you can see, he likes to squint. He also likes big guns. He’s lacking in chimpanzee sidekicks, but he makes up for that with two sentient shotgun shells at his side. I’m sure Clyde would approve.
