Remember when back in the day (1981 - 1988) the Voltron toy craze, those 5 awesome die cast metal lions that formed this super mega robot that would kill anything it went up against?
There were two kinds you could buy, the $300 dollar die cast metal, weighty, version or the $75 dollar hard shiny, light plastic version.
The metal felt great in your hands, its weight commanded respect, it was almost a weapon.
The plastic often didn't snap in right, was always so flimsy and you never felt like Voltron couldn't even trample your old Smurfs.
Leah got the new white, shiny, plastic white iPhone 3G.
I have the original, heavy, titanium iPhone.
