    I found the 1977 Camaro with coin a couple weeks ago at Cottage Grove, MN Walmart, and found the ECTO-1 yesterday at the same location. Hopefully the large Optimus Prime and the smaller G1 die casts start showing up soon too!

    I don't know if they are in the same assortment but I found that Ecto-1 last week on clearance at Target. It's the only time seeing it and it was odd it was on clearance already.

    According to Walmart, they are in the same assortment as the older Jada Transformers die casts.

    I found the ecto-1 a few weeks ago too at Wal-Mart. It did look good but I passed on it because I already have a few models of ecto-1, ecto-1a, and ecto1-b in both metal and plastic in 1/24, 1/21 scales one of which is rc. I have yet to see any of the new jada diecast transformers though.

    I think you need to edit the news post to say they're non-transformable :) 

    So far we just know about the two Bumblbees and trilogy Optimus.

    I ordered both the 1977 Camero and 2006 Camero from 3000toys.com . They don\'t come with a coin though.

    Since I found mine a couple weeks ago, I guess I've had mine since July too technically ;) 

    Did you find yours at retail too, or did you order online?

    Funnily enough I found it alongside the 2007 Camaro in a hobby shop in Tokyo (which I didn’t buy as it’s too high end car model looking)

    Facial animation is a bit weak - and I have seen better fan made cartoons by one guy in their bedroom.

    But that said It is likely an improvement over Prime Wars if only because it's not running in slow motion.

    It's acceptable as a child's curiosity peice.

    News to me. I’m really thinking about getting that ecto 1. If it had lights and a siren it would be an automatic purchase.
