    Found this display at Wal*Mart in Mt. Prospect, IL on an Easter display island, in one of the main aisles between personal hygiene and food.

    From what I can tell, there are four different types of designs:

    Autobot logo with Transformers movie font
    Optimus Prime, almost full body shot. No text
    Optimus Prime, more of a bust shot, Optimus Prime text
    Barricade, no text

    $4.87 apiece. A picked up a few. Each comes with the same set of stickers w/ Autobot and Decepticon logos. You can "design" your own egg by putting the stickers anywhere you want.

    These are kid sizes, very small. Unless you have the wrist of a 6-year-old, you unfortunately won't be able to show off your new watch.

    Pictures of the display and two of the watches can be seen at the link below:

    I'm equally interested in that pallet of Peeps pictured below. My dentist and I love this time of year. :D 

    Cool little watches. My nephew is nine, so they are probably too small. :(
