    Not sure how "big" of a news story this is, but recently found the Transformers Prime Battle Masks at K-mart in, as my bio says, Wisconsin.

    Kinda surprised too, it's the first TF: Prime item K-mart has gotten in, so for all I know, we might see the vehicle sets next.

    Eitherway, figured I'd signal off that the masks are findable, and I'll post a picture of the Optimus one I got in a few minutes. Gotta admit too, the Bumblebee one looked pretty nice too.

    Got mine for about $10.99 not including tax.

    Well, off to mount Optimus' face on my wall, peace :)

    Good to know these are out. I might get a Prime one, as I really like the design of his head/face in TFP. I'll wait to see Bumblebee's in person before even thinking about it. Hopefully this'll be the line that finally gives us masks of more than just Optimus and Bumblebee. A Soundwave mask would be a must-have if they ever made it. Especially if they made his screen out of some heavily tinted translucent plastic (something like the tinting used for most sunglasses).

    If anything I'd love to see a Soundwave and Wheeljack mask, especially the latter :) 

    And I've seen the Bumblebee one, they come 3-3 in a case, three Optimus and three Bumblebee, and I had a hard time picking which one I'd pick up, cause the Bumblebee one does look pretty good, and both are pretty show accurate.

    Definitely a good find. Hopefully, this means that K-Mart will be the next store chain to put out the deluxes and Voyagers.

    Not much for role play (in the bedroom or otherwise- TMI??), but this mask is pretty cool! I may have to snag this one. The BB looks like a huge pass, but this one... has potential.

    Saw these at my Kmart last week. Didn't know they were new. Looked kinda boring and plasticy for my taste. I'm guessing KMarts pulled these things out during the reset.

    Cool. I'll probably get one if I find it. It would go well with my movieverse Optimus mask. :D

    I heard these were cancelled in the U.S., but we can get the Prime one later with translucent red plastic cheeks.

    ive never got any of the helmets before. i find spending more then 20.00 on one is a waist when i can get something cheaper with more play value then this. plus i see a ton of them at flee markets for like 5 bucks
