    First off, sorry for the blurry cellphone pictures, it's the only thing I had on me. Second, I didn't see this posted anywhere else on the boards, so I figured I'd post away.

    I was at Walmart yesterday and saw these on a peg near the random 'cheap' toys. The peg they were on was labeled "$2", and they were nearby some Ironman & Spiderman boards. Looked like they used various artowork (mostly Dreamwave?) for the boards, and there were a few different characters used on them. I photographed one of the Prime ones, which pictures the others on the back.

    I thought those of you who collect the misc. TF-related stuff might like to know about it, but what do the rest of you think? Perfect size for Scouts or Activators? :D

    I got the Optimus one a couple months back. They are placed very randomly from walmart to walmart. I currently have a Mario figure riding mine at work trying to get away from bullet bill.

    Alrighty then... They were new to me, and as I said; a quick search for "Skateboard" on the forum didn't pull anything up. -Worth a shot.

    LOL, I loved those figures... Too bad a buddy of mine grabbed the good ones before I saw them...

    I'd like to get some of those for my Revoltechs. Shame the UK sucks as far as getting them goes. Oh well.

    I know this is kind of an old thread, but I did not want to piss anybody off by creating a new thread. I am trying to be careful with my posts.
    Well, I was drunk last night and in walmart, I saw these fingerboards and thought it would be cool to take some pics with TFs riding them. Here they are just for laughs. If this is hogging server space just let me know and I will delete it.
