    These sound a bit like british funyuns.

    ...So what qualifies them as being able to "transform"?

    You stick 4 of the hoop-shaped crisps over the little figure shaped one, thereby giving it wheels of sort.

    Good god, are they still making those? I used to eat something like those when I was a kid, except I think they were called Space Invaders or something back then.

    A firm staple of Auto Assembly every year too.

    For those that didn't notice, it mentions 20p and 99p which means these are for the UK market only.

    "exclusive snack partner"!!!! WTF...give me a break.

    They have gotten out of hand with the promotion for this movie. That frightens me. 99.9999% of the time a movie gets pushed this hard it's a POS. Ughh.

    This is no different than any other big summer film promotion. It's going to get the crap promoted out of it. Also, what you said certainly isn't true. Plenty of films had everything from Lunch boxes to Breath mints and went on to be very successful.

    w00t looks like I'll be eating transform-a-snacks this summer, well, I did anyway, for the past 7 years or so.

    *Would much rather eat these than Lunchables*

    You may be thinking of Space Raiders, which are different and still in production. Both Transform-a-Snack and Space Raiders have been around for years, and both make you sweat if you dare to eat two packs of them at once. Strange things.

    I remember when Transform A Snaks used to cost 10p.

    Do Space Raiders still have the little comics on the back with a Ziggy Stardust character? I havent eaten them since the 80's.

    Man now i'm having a nostalgic flashback to all the snacks I used to eat. Tangy Toms, Quarterbacks, Puffs, Thundercats Crisps.
