    Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime

    UPDATE: I just returned from K-Mart. The result? A pair of jeans and a Robo-Powered 3-D Optimus Prime mask. Just kidding! It was leader Sentinel Prime. So, for the 21 of you who voted for big red, pat yourselves on the back for winning absolutely nothing! This concludes the first and only edition of "What the Hell Did I Just Buy from K-Mart?" Thanks to everyone who played and realized this was just for fun :) 

    For anyone interested, the entire experience at K-Mart was fine. They handed me my purchase, already bagged. I looked inside, saw that it was Sentinel Prime, and explained that this wasn't what I wanted. The customer service people were friendly. They offered to check the shelf for the right one, which I knew would be fruitless, so I declined. They refunded my money and I left with no monetary loss. All in all, the whole process was a fun experiment. To those hoping to see a whole "RAWR RAWR RAWR KMART SUX. I DIN'T GIT IRONHIDE. RAWR RAWR RAWR THEY SCREWED ME AND MY CHILDHOOD IS RUINED," sorry, but short of them taking a dump in a bag, handing it to me, refusing to accept the return and then lighting me on fire, I had a pretty good idea of what I was going to get.

    Also, to the three of you who voted for Leader Ironhide, I'm happy to see a few optimists out there!

    I fully understand and accept the risk of ordering from kmart.com, but I figured I'd take a chance and see if I end up with leader Ironhide. If it's not, all I have to do is return it...

    The Facts:

    - K-Mart's website is terrible
    - K-Mart's leader class figures are $39.99
    - Title clearly states DotM Optimus
    - Picture is clearly leader Ironhide
    - There is no DotM leader Optimus
    - There have been no DotM leader Ironhide sightings (that I'm aware of)
    - Site says it is available at a nearby K-Mart, so I'm picking up instore
    - Said K-Mart has several leader Battle Hooks Primes (not listed on K-Mart's site)
    - Said K-Mart also has 1 RotF Leader Prime w/ blades (listed on K-Mart's site, but, according to the site, it is not available in store)
    - K-Mart's website is terrible

    So whaddaya think I'll get? Provided the order gets filled, I'll post the result of this ill-advised purchase later tonight.

    k-mart just continues to fail, i hope you get leader Ironhide but I remember for a little while when their site had a listing for the TRU exclusive Cybertron mode Animated Ratchet and people who ordered it got regular Animated Ratchets didn't they?

    if you do in store pickup, you'll get whatever they have on the floor. If you have it shipped to you, who knows?

    I love the $40 worth of Tuner Mudflaps option. XD

    If you were going to my local K-Mart I'd say you'd be most likely to pick up a shanking and a blood disease.

    Oh man this reminds me of a few months ago using them for "HA Mudflap"..... epically failed! Got a notice the next day of my orders cancellation, so I called, they claimed to "re-up" my order then 5 minutes later said, "Oh sorry that's not available.... how about HA BB?" PASS! That was my 1st HA purchase. Plus no answers as to why they would have Mudflap labeled as "AVAILABLE & READY TO SHIP" if they didn't have it. URGH!!!! Have fun with your soon-to-be movie 1 Leader Prime lol

    I saw that picture of leader Ironhide at kmart last week and I noticed there is no entry for leader Sentinel Prime so my guess is that entry is really for Sentinel Prime even though the picture is for leader Ironhide. But the $40 price is better than the other stores.

    What they said. If it's a picture of Ironhide and says Optimus, then it's almost guaranteed to be neither.

    Thanks to everyone who has participated, and for those who haven't, there's still plenty of time to place your guess. Sure, there's no prize, but surely the chance to know that you have the same thought process as the order filler at my local K-Mart will mean something! :D 

    I just received an email saying my order is ready for pickup. With roughly 5 hours before my workday ends, the suspense is building! What will I get? Ironhide? Optimus? Mudflap? Transquito? Fruit Snacks?

    Stay tuned for the next exciting installment of "What the Hell Did I Just Buy from K-Mart?"!
