    Yes, that is a good find!

    They've been doing this every easter for some time though.
    But to be honest, I've never seen them anywhere.
    I look every year, and every year I finds nothing.
    =(

    Found those too, but GOOD GAWD are they CHEEEEEEAP. I was trying to transform the Silverbolt and the pin that holds the nose of his plane mode to his body just slid right out. :redface2:  Sadly, I had to put them all together into "Superion" just for Silverbolt to be able to stand up - his bot had this tilted torso that refused to stand up straight! :(  The paint apps kinda suck too (black paint from the visor smeared across the right side of the head). I mean, he looks "ok" up on my shelf of knockoffs but I kinda wish I wouldn't have gotten him. $10 for the basket but it seemed like it was a $3 basket, a $1 worth of Easter "Grass" and the rest in candy, oh and here's a toy just for kicks and giggles. :lolol

    I bought them years ago, and they're horrible.

    Been posted in News before, and even then it wasn't news, they do knockoffs every year... Kmart has them, too.

    For those of you that have the Superion bootleg, how is the quality of the accessories, hands and gun mainly. I have the vintage G1 but seem to have lost those pieces over time and was wondering if this would be a cheaper alternative to going out and finding these peices on eBay.
