    Update: Original source: http://www.freewebs.com/ofrajaws/tfaboardgame.htm

    Never heard of this before-- apparently a Tformers member found it at their local Wal-Mart for $20. It's in a Prime-shaped box, contains miniatures of Prime, Bumblebee, Bulkhead, and Prowl, and includes a 100-piece puzzle, Tic-Tac-Toe, Checkers, and an original Animated board game.

    Is it in the board game aisle or the toy aisle?

    It looks like no matter what class of figure it is, Bulkhead will always be extremely out of scale

    I wish to see close ups of the TFA game board. The box looks cool. Looks like something you'd take out on a boring rainy day or vacation.

    I'm planning on getting this myself, so if I find it and no one else has posted good pics of the thing by then, I'll get some nice pics and descriptions up.

    I spotted this tonight in San Antonio.

    Color me underwhelmed.

    At first I thought it was cool (simply because of the unexpected discovery) and as I was waiting in line to get it I just kept staring at it knowing that I was about to drop $20.00 for four figurines that look like they belong in a gumball machine. Yeah, the games included sure seem neat enough and TFA themed stuff is always cool in my book, but seriously...tic tac toe and checkers are games that I have not played since I was in my pre-teen years.

    Nice display piece I guess...but I think I will pass on this one altogether.

    Is this located in the toy or board game sections of Walmart? I was at Walmart yesterday and didn't see it in the toy section.

    I am going to buy this. Not the biggest fan of animated, but I can't pass up a cool looking board game.

    Nice box, but I'd probably only buy it for the figures, and there'll doubtless be Animated Robot Heroes coming soon anyway.
    The Armada board game was better for figures. :)
