    As someone who loves both Hobby Lobby and Chick Fil A, this made me laugh. May visit both today, in fact. I have the Megatron metal print, would love to find the Bee

    Wow.. all I have to say is wow!. They are a "tiny" bit grainy blown up to poster size, but they are absolutely gorgeous!!!! They've been stuck in USPS hell for the last 2 weeks (were shipped 2 day priority on 12/17 and I just got them today)... Abso'fricken'lutely worth the wait.

    I picked up the original, both versions with the citybots, and the dino bots. Lovely!

    My wife has been bringing home these sweet tin signs the last couple trips she's made to Hobby Lobby - Does anyone know if there are any others out there? Or has anyone seen any others?

    There were a few right before Christmas -- Megatron, OP, and Bee. This is in addition to a larger G1-style framed canvas print that was marked down significantly.

    Bought them a month ago or so.

    Was a big thread, got both tins and the canvas box art print 50% off.

    Oh Super Duper Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! I had wondered why they didn't have Optimus b4 .... almost went to my HL today, will be looking there tomorrow for sure. Thanks for the heads up!!

    Last time the metal signs were all over the place, you really have to treasure hunt the entire store to find them.... asking the sales folks didn't help much, most didn't know what a TF was or where they were.
    Finally got lucky with one person, she showed me where they were hidden. :lol

    Both of the signs are around
    Height=15"
    Width=12"

    They are $20 each, but you can use the 40% off coupon for one item or just wait for the 50% off metal decor sales they have (that seems to be about every other week).

    WOOOOOOOT I have Megatron and Bumblebee. I need to pick these up in the morning.

    My wife found them last time. She knows how to navigate that store pretty well.

    Not that I've heard of or seen since this thread started. Thought about looking up the mfgr. of the signs and see what else they have.

    The metal tin signs are Hasbro approved, so guess they chose the non-G1 Optimus...tho I don't see why, the others are classic G1.... they just wanted to change it up when it came to OP, or will there be a 2nd one issued next year maybe??? :)

    Picked up the Soundwave sign for the collection room over the weekend. I hate to give Hobby Lobby money but once isn't going to hurt. Especially with a coupon.

    Debating going back for the PMOP but I'll wait to get a 50% coupon. They also had Bumblebee but it uses modern comic art. Not sure if its IDW or Dreamwave but it looks super out of place.

    So what kind of metal Transformers signs do they have? Might have to see if the one an hour away has any of the ones I missed when I head up north Saturday.

    A couple months back I found the Bumblebee one and picked it up even though I was shopping for Marvel tins to hang up.

    Just thought I'd quote my previous post... you won't need a coupon this week.
