    Transformers Movie DVD Stickers On Cybertron Deluxe Packaging

    I don't know if this is news worthy, but no one else has mentioned it before.

    I stopped at my local Target this morning and noticed that all of the Cybertron deluxes had stickers, advertising the upcoming release of the original Transformers Movie on DVD. I'm guessing these were put on by the employees as ALL of them had them. Here are a few pics for you package variant hunters.

    Do package variant collectors actually consider this a variant since the employees put them on? That would drive me crazy if that were the case.

    They look factory applied to me. I'd be surprised if the employees did it.

    employees do not put them on. Any sticker on a package is either factory applied or some kid stuck a smiley face on it..

    The reason I figured the employees did it was because the pegs were about half way full yesterday. They were totally full today and all of them had the stickers. I can't imagine they pulled the old stock and put these out there. Then again, they might have. All of the figures out there seemed to be from older assortments.

    I saw those stickers today at Torrance, CA Walmart. I feel sorry for anyone who can't fight the urge to buy a second figure just for that sticker.

    I'm glad I got all caught up with Cybertron before they put stickers all over them. ^^

    We've received reports of promotional stickers for the upcoming re-release of the animated Transformers movie on Cybertron figures. We've also learned that these stickers will appear on both Classics Deluxe and Classics Voyagers figures as well.

    Neat. It took Hasbro long enough to give respect to the movie.

    Sorry, but no. When I worked at Toys "R" Us, we had to hand-apply promotion stickers to Star Wars toys.

    I think I saw a person putting them on in Target. I thought it was just some Target employee doing something with the Transformers. Once I went to Wal-mart and saw the stickers on the package already, I figured that the person at Target was probably some Hasbro person
