    This time, they're movie themed.

    - $20
    - 2 styles, Deceptions (pictured) or Autobots

    [​IMG]
    - the packaging is a bit smaller than the G1's by the same company (CoreGamer)
    - Instead of making you guess on 6 patterns, they show all but 1.
    - The face plate's font are identical to the ones used in the Target $1 spot items.



    The GameStop product listing has been altered too ...

    [​IMG]
    - you still can't choose which one you want
    - every GameStop only stocks 1 at a time.
    - finding the specific one you want just got 2 times harder.



    Here's the Autobot pack from CoreGamer's website

    and even more from CoreGamer ...

    You are the first I know of to show pictures of the item but I think they were released on the 17th. I've seen both but skipped them because I didn't have the money for them. I saw the Decepticon one after calling a Gamestop to ask if they had the G1 Autobot version, they said they did but didn't. Are you keeping them sealed? If not what is the secret one. That has been bugging me since I saw it.

    I saw these at my Gamestop last week. All they had was the Decepticon set but they were pretty sweet. I've been meaning to go back and pick them up.

    Oh gotcha. That G1 Autobot pack was impossible to find, so I'm hoping it's not the same with the Movie Autobots.

    Unfortunately, I am keeping these sealed. I'll have to venture a guess and say that the mystery one is the flipside to the shown in plastic. On the back of the package, its' the only reverse side not shown.

    the mystery one is either Shia Labeouf or Megan Fox.

    Thanks. I thought you were keeping them sealed since you had both Decepticon packs sealed. Your right about the G1 Autobot pack being hard to find. I had to order mine direct from Coregamer to get it. It is on my 360 which is finally back in my room after letting my brother use it since his got the dreaded "Red Ring of Death".

    Thanks for the information. Do you know which one is in which set?

    Try this link. It is the manufacturer's site and they have them for sale.

    The secret one in the Autobots one is a G1 of Optimus Prime which was avaible in the G1 plate kit. Also go to Coregamer.com they sell all of them.

    And I reported them a whole month prior to that, in two seperate threads:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showpost.php?p=1341331&postcount=42

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showpost.php?p=1343880&postcount=8

    It is also not true that GameStops receive only 1 of each. Some stores receive two -- the one I works at got two 360 faceplates in the same shipment, although one was Autobot and the other was Decepticon (from the movie).

    Sorry, I never saw your posts when I posted my thread. Every time I go to a Gamestop they only have one faceplate but everyone keeps saying they are one style to a shipment so I thought they saw more than one. Thanks for the information.
