    A cardboard standee should be arriving at many area theatres soon. We got ours in today, and I'll be assembling it tomorrow, and then updating with pics. It's the same 'extended poster' we've seen recently, with squishy humans between giant bot heads. The dimensions on it are 12' long, 8 1/2' tall, and 2 1/2' deep. My wife was less than pleased to know that 8 1/2 foot tall versions of Optimus and Megatron heads will be coming home after the movie premiers. :)

    Maybe I can persuade the people at my theatre to give it to me.

    Good luck with that. I had already tried and they told me: "We have to return them to the company." Which basically means: "The employees get dibs." Sigh. These are going to be really hard to come by. Might have to get a job at the local theater after Botcon just so I can have a chance on getting some of these promotional items.

    Some horrible little brat will knock bits off it before then.

    My sister used to work at the local Odeon and filched RED PLANET, TOMB RAIDER, THE ROCK and CON AIR standees for me. Of course, by the time something I really want comes along like this the silly moo has long since left!!!!

    Even if I could convince my local theater to give me one, it would never fit in my house. Oh, well.

    Hmmmmmm.... I could probably get away with tearing the little Meg Fox figure off, but someone would surely notice me carrying the whole thing out under my arm.
