    There have been a few on eBay and I grabbed one from a seller. If this is the same thing, it's black with white Autobot and Decept logos on opposite sides. About 12" in diameter.

    That's pretty nifty. So are these DVDs in the bargain bin or are they like regular priced DVDs?

    Yeah some of those movies suck but I'd buy it just for the Beachball and then probably give the DVD as a birthday gift to someone.

    I'd keep the beachball and give the DVD to my nephew, he's too young to know such bad films. ;)

    My, this is new for me. A promotional beachball for a movie.

    I assume that once the package is opened, instructions say that it transforms from a pile of stretchable plastic to a beachball, that it only needs to you blow it to transform.

    Make sure you have a friend nearby to make transforming sounds as you blow the ball up.

    This promo gives me the image of a six to seven year-old boy running around in circles, windmilling his arms, yelling out "BEACHBALL! BEACHBALL! BEAHCBALL!"

    It would be cool to have a ball with the Decepticon logo flying at your face in the pool.
    Anybody want to have a poll for the most outrageous promotion for the movie?

    At RoboGames, they had a Transformers booth. They had a raffle every hour, and the winner got a beach ball.

    Just be prepared for them to throw them right back at you and not invite you to next years party. You couldn't even regift those..
