    Forgive me if I've been out of the loop the last couple of days - been at the doc.

    On a Spokane oldies station I just heard a few minutes ago an ad that started 'Autobot, transform! Autobot, transform!' spoken by a little kid, who's mother then explains that their car cannot do that, but they can get in the car and go to Walmart and buy a Transformer...and then a narrator comes on to explain how Walmart has all this Transformer stuff, and even gives the release date for the Bumblebee 3-pack.

    I thought it was pretty cool, but I'm wondering is this maybe a national ad that I just haven't heard before and has anyone else heard it? I don't listen to this station but once a month or so, when I'm tired of the political talk on NPR. Been listening to it a lot more lately, tho! :lol

    I heard this Monday night coming from the in-laws on a rock station late at night in Cleveland.

    Heard it today at work. I was busy with a customer though, so didn't quite hear the whole thing. Still, pretty sweet!

    I listen to commercial free listener supported radio, so I haven't heard it. So what was the release date of the 3-pack?

    Today. So...not entirely accurate. ;) 

    I liked that it was entirely Transformers...no list including GI Joe, Bratz, etc. Just TFs. :)
