    Found this at the local Dollar Store (pardon for the shitty webcam pic, my camera's batteries are in the charger)

    They had several other no TF designs, but found this one tucked in the back of Spider-Man, Star Wars and other designs.

    It's clearly not an officially-licenced product, but I found this too odd to pass up. Not bad for a dollar!

    Has anyone else seen those around?

    Yes, please tell us! And did they have any Decepticon ones? I'm thinkin' it' be kinda kool to have a big-ish Autobot/Decepticon logos behind my TFs in my display, kinda like the the Cobra/GI Joe things that they had in the first box sets of the 25th line.
    ^I was thinking that'd make a good hiding place for my stash of TF money cuz nobody in my house would dare touch my TFs
    :lolol

    It's like the kind of rubbish that's in all the seaside gift shops here that's been knocked up by some guy at home on his computer and stuck on a keyring, in a photoframe, on a mug, or made into a birthday card or novelty £20 note.
    Since it's something I could easily make myself it's probably not something I'd buy for my collection.

    Hot Topic a few years back had flat cigarette cases.
    they were higher quality, too.
    they had to be licensed.

    Haha, that's exactly what I was going to say... I wonder if these actually once held Band-Aids, or perhaps they were commissioned for a product that never happened...
