    It's not all that rare. They were given out to comic shops when IDW first got the license.

    I don't know about this but, I wouldn't give him any money. A free poster should stay free.

    I have this poster too, however it doesn't have "IDW Publishing October 2005" on it. This and a decepticon symbol poster are the only things on my walls (except for unopened TFs.)

    I have never seen this poster before, though it doesn't seem all that rare.

    Rare or not, I wouldn't mind having it, and that's a good friend you have there.
    Enjoy!!

    This poster will be great next to an Uncle Sam poster.

    Not all that rare, but a pretty cool poster nonetheless.

    And you should give your friend something in return anyways, maybe buy him lunch. Because friends are awesome.

    I got a copy of this poster for free at SDCC a few years back. I'm not sure how rare this is now, but it goes for usually less than $10 on eBay.

    I've got two myself. It might only seem rare, because most comic book shops kept them for themselves or distributed them to only their loyal customers. I know that here, they didn't give it out to the general public.

    I had this, but sold it on; not that rare, but a cool poster. I can't help but wonder if the OP is really asking its rarity/value so as to "give his friend something", or if he wants to see if its worth selling on.

    I'm a cynic, yes.

    Man, your lucky. The nearest comic book store from here is about a 30 min. drive and I don't have a car. Sorry to hijack the thread.
