    I didn't see this posted yet.

    I got an email from Toys R Us that they are having a Transformers Mission this Saturday, July 9th, from 2:00 until 4:00.
    One can 'try out hot toys' -whatever that means.

    Additionally, there are free movie passes for every Transformers purchase of $25 or more.

    Seeing as how I have none of the Kre-0 stuff, I may end up getting some and scoring a free ticket. Or maybe they'll have Fireburst Optimus Prime.
    I definitely need to see Dark of the Moon again.

    Well if its anything like the power ranger demo I ran a few weeks ago it will just be a table with toys to play with. Nothing real special. On top of that they get the toys straight from the shelf so if you don't have anything new then there won't be anything new to try out haha.

    For some reason, Kre-O sets don't count as Transformers purchases, at the TRU near me. Not sure if it's just that store, or a chain-wide thing, but Kre-O purchases did not count towards the free Movie Ticket promo, nor did they count towards the free 3-D Preview Optimus Prime promo that has been run on-and-off for the past few months.

    well with the power ranger event I did, they told me to open the megazords carefully so that they could put them back together and sale it. I'm assuming they will just tape up the packages and sell them for a small discount or they will RGD them if they are too messed up to sale.

    Can someone link to the page that shows which stores are doing this? I'll buy a Kre-O set if it gets me a free ticket to see DOTM again.
