    I wasn't able to get a pic but I was passing thru the Easter basket section of a SuperCenter Walmart yesterday when I noticed giant Easter baskets for $7.95 that have bootleg Arielbots. The quality seems rather substandard but they would be excellent for kitbashes.

    Yeah i've worked at WALMART for going on 3 years. You can kinda spot people who come in around Easter, you know what they're looking for, craptastic TF KO's.

    I'm saddled with a Superion that I got as boot in a trade. I'd like to boot it out the door into the road!!

    The ones in the baskets are more substandard than the eBay ones. Bought the Superion one last year and tossed it out.

    I got the basket Superion KO last year. It was horrible even for a KO. Superion wouldnt stand at all, and silverbolt's head broke in half just trying to transforrm him. The KO Superion set I got at Big Lots later was much better.

    I just got back from Wal-Mart where they had quite a few. It looked very cheap. Not even worth getting in my opinion.
