    Granted at this point they're not really necessary for Hasbro to sell TFs, but it would have been great to see some movieformers advertised with clips from the movie.

    There are TF toy commercials. I've seen two so far: One with just toys, one that's basically the first one cut down with movie footage added in.

    Oh right, and there's that one.

    I think there's a forth but I can't be absolutely certain.

    I've never seen one. I live in NY and go back to LA about three times a year. Even there, I saw nothing.

    I barely saw any. I think I've seen a grand total of five commercials so far. (three different ones)

    Are they on Cartoon Network or Nick or something like that? I haven't watched those in ages... I wonder if the new TF commercials are on YouTube.

    Edit: here's one:

    I saw one on the evening news a couple of months ago, that is the one and only ad I saw for the entire movie line.

    Only Movie TF toy commercials I've seen were those playing on the monitors at the Hasbro booth last year at SDCC, while I was waiting to get an Alt Hot Rod.

    I've only ever saw the Optimus prime and Starscream blaster things on a commercial in regards to the movie line. The last series I can recall that had a good amount of commercials was Armada.

    Unless you are watching cartoons on a Saturday morning, you are probably not going to see them.

    You can watch them on the Hasbro site. Here is the linky:

    Hope that helps man, I have only seen the arm blaster one on TV for the movie stuff.
