    I sighted the Optimus Prime Blaster, (the repaint of the Transformers Energon role play blaster), at the Reading TRU today. They were packed three to the case, there was only one case out on the floor. It's a Walmart exclusive in the US, so the fact we're getting it over here is pretty awesome, although I'll confess I didn't get it as I don't collect the roleplay items.

    Saw it in Edinburgh TRU on Thursday, but it was on the endcap beside the Classic Voyagers, Anniversary Primes and Towed to Safety packs.

    It does looks better than the original version, but like Sol Fury I'm not into the Roleplay items so left it.

    Shelf warmer in the States, also the same mold as the Armada Blaster. At least the Armada version got used in the show.

    This has been out at least a couple of weeks in the UK - if i'd known it was frontpage worthy i'd have taken the credit ages ago :D 

    Also, it's in both my local ASDAs (subsidary of Wal*mart over here) so it's most certainly not a TRU exclusive.

    Saw a few of these when I picked up Brawl. The thing that really caught my eye though was a bizarre gumball machine made out of big Armada Prime. Anyone else seen those?

    Saw one on Thursday in Edinburgh TRU. I'm positive Remy did a gallery of it before, but I can't find it now.
