    That's a much better Bumblebee than the Dreamwave one from a few years ago.

    These things never come out in Australia :( 

    Any Idea how one might be able to obtain these otherwise?

    What other ones were there?

    They didn't have any Transformers signs the last couple of times I was in Hobby Lobby. Had wanted to get the Megatron and Soundwave ones they had a while ago. I walked the entire store looking for them since they never kept them with the other tin signs. It's cool that they've got these new ones in now but they don't much catch my interest unfortunately.

    Neat.

    I actually found the Optimus one (which is hanging on the wall next to my desk) a month or two ago at Hobby Lobby.

    I had no idea these were new, I've had OP on my wall for well over a month now.

    I got them a few weeks back. I'd really like to find someone selling that G1 artwork poster from a couple years ago.

    Thanks so much. Gonna go get them next time I go there. There is one next to chick fil a near my house so it'll give me an excuse to go to my favorite two places.

    Got a lot of my shelves and shelf brackets, etc... at hobby lobby so they know me by now anyway.

    Yeah. That was awesome. I'd love the box-back murals as large posters/prints/giclees.

    I know that they just took "cool" dynamic poses and pasted them over line work for a quick cash grab... but dang, MP-Bee design specs under Classics packaging art?

    They could've at least made them match eras.

    That's exactly the reason I skipped Bee and only picked up Prime.

    Hey, if anyone has trouble finding any of these at their local H.L., the SKU for Optimus is 1478700. The employees there are usually quite helpful.

    Oh, and look at what else have: A tin can robot. Beats Sqweeks any day of the week, IMO:

    If I can find them I will be willing to buy them and either trade to you or sell to you at cost + shipping to help a fellow fan out.

    Glad to know I am not the only one with that... whatever it is.

    Unfortunate. I'd pick up both were they MP nor at least G1 themed. Be a neat, stick on the wall thing. But whatever, money saved, I reckon.
