    Good Day All,

    I was out and about today hunting for a Leadfoot which I found at Target. I happened to stop by Walmart today as well and in the middle of the isle was this rather interesting sound & light activated display piece of Ultimate Optimus Prime standing on the earth. I have not seen a post about this and I am not sure if all Walmarts will get this, but I thought I would share the pics I took of him. It would be sweet to actually have one to own. The one thing I did notice it that he seems glues and pinned in to place in the case so you would not be able to remove him from the case. Enjoy!!!

    I've seen this at mine for about 2 weeks now. I honestly think they look like shit, but it's a good way to get kids to buy them.

    That must be from the scene in TF4 when Optimus Prime decides humanity no longer suits his purposes and uses the corpses of every Decepticon ever to nuke the Earth.

    IMHO, Hasbro is going about marketing this guy all wrong.

    Prime looks kinda goofy IMHO all butterfly'd out, but it's still the cheapest way to Prime with a trailer and honestly you can get a lot of good poses out of the combination of stuff this package comes with.

    I have one, and am selling it (see junkion) for the only reason that I don't have anywhere to display him. But if I was a Prime collector or even just a kid, I would think this thing is really cool.

    My Wal-Mart's had it for awhile too. The figure's left shoulder is broken, so the arm's just hanging off to the side. Kinda funny and sad that whoever set it up didn't care enough to even glue it back.

    So far, my WM won't give it to me or sell it when they're finished. But I'll keep asking. :)

    Mine has it too, posted it in Sightings and was told everybody's WM had them, so figured it wasn't a big deal, but I thought it was pretty cool.

    Went back a couple of days ago and somehow the kiddies (I presume) had managed to knock off one of Prime's "wings"..guess they are turning the display upside down or something..poor bot, his parts are just lying on the base of the display.

    :lol
