    Found these today (18 March 2007) at Toys R Us. These Pop figures punch in a similar fashion to "Rockem' Sockem' Robots". The faction symbol also spins the Pop, which is assumed at this point since they have not yet been opened.

    They sell for $4.99 each. BTW, I really really like them! :D

    Interesting. I can think of someone who'll be interested in these. I'll probably get a set as well. Interesting little guys.

    Awesome! Yeah, I agree. They're pretty good sculpts. And would look great on a desk.

    I picked this up a few days ago, at the Toys R' Us in Johnstown, PA...

    My job had sent me down for business, and the least I could do was use the time to toy hunt. I haven't opened them yet, but I thought they were everywhere, until I came back to Lancaster, PA and couldn't find a set for a friend....

    By the way, I also found some Heroes of Cybertron figures and a pin at Hot Topic...if anyone wants pics, just ask!

    Fans, I need to confess. I made this post from my girlfriend's account for two reasons:

    1. Ooops on my part

    2.Glad I did since she doesn't have her password handy to log back in.:wink:  However, she did give me an assist in getting the picture posted. :D 

    Our FIRST FRONT PAGE TOO! YIPEE!

    Okee Dokee,
    This is the REAL Freyabeads. Backscatter is correct. He oopsied mostly due to overexcitement over these. I have to admit they are fun items. Optimus even punched him in the nose.
