    Promo giveaway with the Boston Globe, and also being given away at Stop and Shop in the Northeast. Given past giveaways, it's likely other stores be giving them away as well. It's an uncut sheet of baseball cards- 10 characters, 2 factions.

    I'm sure other papers are doing this, but this one was obviously cut for the Boston Globe

    Pics attached.

    I like Megs and Barricade's static poses!

    No idea. I didn't pick up a copy. This was slipped into my shopping bag by a bagger, and had a slip of paper that said something to the effect of "Free gifts like this every weekend in the Boston Sunday Globe."

    No love for Bonecrusher?
    From the card, it seems that Frenzy has more than 1 alt mode... interesting.

    No idea. Sorry. I just went to pick up a few groceries- I had no idea this promotion was going on, nor do I know much else about it.

    looks like all the heights are confirmed. Jazz is only 4 inches shorter than BB so not bad after all.

    Why is it that all of the Autobots are pictured, but not not Bonecrusher, Brawl (who apparently gets no love at all), and Scorponok? At least Barricade is in a good pose, where it doesn't look like he's broke his neck.

    There was a stack of these at work, I asked if I would take them, and they said, sure, take as many as you want...

    So I took them all. I have a stack of 42 of these which I will be bringing to Botcon for anyone who wants one.

    Good thing I'll be there, then. I would so take two or three sets. (That's a frameable, right there.)

    I can't afford to go to Botcon. Would someone be so kind to send me a set?
