    Spotted these tonight in Target's Easter Section. The grass is blue and has Autobot faction symbols on it. The TFA Easter EGGS weren't stocked, but the price tag was there.

    2.29 for a handfull of fake grass that has no relation to animated. I'll pass. You'd need several of those to fill up a basket properly.

    Its products like this that make me wish they never made the live action movies, because then Hasbro wouldn't have been like "oh hey we can market Transformers merchandise besides toys, right?" I mean yeah there was small stuff before the movie like candy and valentines, but come on... EASTER GRASS?

    Even as a kid I would not think this is cool :c In fact this is the sort of thing my childish mind would say "this is everywhere now its not cool" and stop liking :banghead:

    The grass is silly, but the Easter eggs sound nice. I might get myself some.

    Its useless stringy crap used to fill easter baskets, instead of... y'know... filling it with more candy and other goodies.

    Nothing expresses the meaning of Easter like TFA shredded paper.

    1. You have to be an idiot to market this and sell it.

    2. You have to be a bigger idiot to actually buy this.

    DUR YAY Transformers grass!

    Talk about a useless product! :lol  Maybe some obscure product collectors will find this useful.

    What people don't know is that it's made from real Cybertronian metal shavings, so at that price it's a steel! Dahaha, pun.

    The articulation looks pretty good on the grass, I'm just kinda worried that it might not be very stable in robot mode.

    Ok everyone sing!

    *Ohhh This is the way we whore the brand, whore the brand, whore the brand. This is the way we whore the brand, whore the brand in the morning*

    Dear Hasbro Licencing Department,

    There is is little word you can use when you don't want to do something. That word is called 'NO'. Its a handy little word that doesn't cost anything to say, it protects your brand values and means we don't end up with products that have no relavance to the brand.

    Seriously what the hell are they thinking!
