    Went to Target today to pick up a Transformer for a fellow board member and came across the following item. It's a candy gift pack with items originally only found sold separately. The price is $5.99. I also looked to see if they had an Optimus Prime one, but I didn't see one.

    Yep, there's a Prime as well - picked them up last week. For a moment I thought the deco on the bots was a bit different than the TRU versions, but upon comparison, they're the same.

    Me too. Funny thing about that is that Alphie and I shop at the same stores. :D  Oh well, it is a given that if it is a TFs oddity, she will find it eventually.

    When I spotted them at the Target here, I was disappointed they only had Prime. What's the fun of just one punching bot? :D 

    I didn't actually pick it up, but now I'm suddenly tempted to...

    these have been out for about 3 weeks I didnt think it was new since they had been spotted at TRU but I guess the packaging is different.

    Funny how different places get different things, as these have been at my local TRU since the grand display opened on June 2nd, not in the bubble pack, but loose in the candy section, whole endcap full of Transformers candy items. Cool find!

    Damn, I saw these things two or three weeks ago. Didn't think I'd be able to get front page for it, so didn't pick it.
