    So in the WalMart stores that are putting up the Spider-Man 3 promotional signage and such (shelf-talkers, the signs on the big metal fixtures in the middle of the aisles) ... if you're lucky enough to be able to pull one back just a little bit, or a WalMart employee didn't put it together firmly enough ... you will discover that on the backside of the Spider-Man 3 promotional signs are the promotional signs for the Transformers the Movie (stock images of Bumblebee, Prime, etc.)

    Don't go destroying fixtures to see it ... cuz it'll be out as soon as the Spider-Man 3 stuff is done. But I discovered this the other day. Kind of cool.

    I thought Target was the official TF Movie toy store? Does anyone know what happened about that? If walmart has a big sign, I would expect them to have a ton of movie product.

    That may be so but Hasbro has a huge impact on Walmarts toy department hence the excess of Spiderman signage and products. Just wait for the TF movie...

    But didn't someone on here who works for W*M recently say that W*M "doesn't have much faith in the movie" and wouldn't be "fully supporting the line", or some such? Maybe that's not going to be the case. (I hope.)

    An update! We have received pictures of the promotional signs.

    It's going to be awesome to walk into stores and see a huge display like this. Summer can't come fast enough.

    I hope the TF movie toys don't do like the Cars movie toys. They warmed shelves all the way up to the opening of the movie, then BAM! The little booger's completely sold out.

    Mine too. I also found (and bought) all the Spiderman 3 figures while I was at it. It's been a fine day.
