    I searched for this and picked up nothing, so if this has been posted, sorry. I found this at Walmart 2 days ago. Sorry for the terrible quality of the picture, it was taken on my phone.

    Found it over near the fishing equipment. Figured it was a tackle box but it's called utility box.

    Allspark storage case? Energon cube transport? Crazy merchandise?

    Hey, it uses that TF logo IDW was using to promote their then-upcoming Movie adaptation comic.

    Looks like a good TF weapon/accessory storage box to me.

    Hmm, never thought about using it for that. Now I wanna go back and get one. I always feel like I'm about to lose something in my storage areas for my figures. Already tonight I spent a few minutes looking for accessories for my figures to use in my comics.

    What was the price? Looks like the tag was for "Spiderman Net" so I'm unsure.

    I too saw that at my Wal-Mart the other night and though it would be a great weapons holder (though small for the amount of weapons I have from my collection). I would have picked it up but the price tag came back showing $13! Not worth that much. There's also a fishing pole set but it was out of stock.

    Good idea on the weapon storage guys...I think the box would have looked better without the pictures of Prime in the corners though...

    If I didn't like my current tackle box so much, I would be all over that.

    I like it... I gotta see if I can pick one up.

    I also keep seeing these fleece Tf blanket/pillow sets, but they are like 5-feet long. I wish they had a full-sized adult one but that is a dream :)

    Reminds me of this crazy thing I found when wandering around in a Dick's Sporting Goods:

    According to the back it "Helps make your Boo-Boo's all better so you'll feel all better!" XD

    Just picked one up today. The price was roughly seven bucks.

    In person it's a little cheese-tastic. It's available along with other identical small tackle-type boxes for other properties (Barbie, Spider-Man, etc.) and the only differences are the plastic colors, different molded logo on the latch, and different stickers. Yup the Transformers logo and Prime pics are all stickers, and wrinkled a bit when stuck over curved surfaces.

    It does look like a decent storage box for small things. like most tackle boxes, it's got a compartmentalized removable upper level for small pieces, and the bottom of the case itself accomodates larger items.
