    I decided to collect a set of the Burger King cups. I figure this will never happen again (yeah it'll happen in the future for TF3 but never again for ROTF). I wish they had Transformers all over the place every day of every year but sadly, when the promotion is done it's done. So why not save the memories? There are 8 different cups, I only need Ratchet. Anybody else collecting them?

    NO MORE CUPS!!!!


    when i moved into my house a few weeks ago i went to clean out my storage building. it's where I've kept all my toys from my childhood (im 33 now).

    i had a BILLION star wars POTF and EP 1,2,3 cups from everywhere!!! guess what? they just took up space and are STILL worthless.

    i threw them all away!

    i also had some old ass WWF 7-11 cups, some MLB cups and Slurpee helmets from back in the 70's


    worthless!


    Like Phil Collins I'm throwin it all away!

    throwin it all away!

    i did find all my G1 toys... i got Devastator in tact! woot! the dinobots, Insecticons, prime (missing his hands) soundwave and all his original minions and a ton of others. plenty of parts too! cant wait to have time to sit down and sort!!!!

    Yeah, they're worthless but it's just for the memories. They'll only be around for a couple weeks & most people will throw them in the trash. All that nice artwork & printing just to be thrown in the trash? Seems like such a waste.

    Try something else....

    I gave up on the cup collecting because the plastic is cheap and eventually they get brittle before they go up in value.I would go for the collectable straws at 7-11 instead;they look better and dont take up a lot of space.

    My family went before seeing the movie, and I told them not to throw away their cups, so I have Optimus, the Twins, and Starscream. I really wanted to get the others, but when I asked, they said they weren't allowed to give any extras away.
