    Does Burger King have to pay to co-promote movies like ROTF or Star Trek? I would think so since it will draw people to the restaurants to get exclusive promo items.

    I'm not a fan of Burger King but I'll go there just to get the toys if they're any good.

    Not surprising. They did afterall promote the first movie. It'll be interesting to see what bots they make this time. Wouldn't surprise me if there was a Devs, or at least one of the CC's, along with Prime, Megs, Jetfire, the Twins, and Bumblebee.

    Yeah, they're doing Revenge of the Fallen toys in the kids meals in June. My sister works at Burger King and got a look at the list of toys coming out for the whole year. Supposedly there are more details as to what figures they will be making, but nobody "completely understood it". She's gonna try getting another look at it for me when she gets the chance.

    Who made the Energon toys? McDonald's or Burger King? They were pretty cool. The Animated ones were decent too.

    I rather deal with the creepy king than that scary clown. But the food is not as good.

    I don't know why, but I'll pick them up. I picked up all the ANimated McDonalds toys and I even asked for a Happy Meal bag :)
