    Our local Toys "R" Us held a Transformers event this afternoon. Took my kids expecting something grand but came away disappointed. The kids did get a free Kre-O Optimus riding Grimlock and got to test out some of the toys from AOE.

    Some pictures of the freebies:

    I went over after seeing the movie this afternoon and saw nothing set up so I went and asked an employee and he sent someone to the back room and he handed me two sets of the KRE-O set and a handful of the posters. Gave one of them to a kid who thought it was pretty cool. It's a fun little set and actually looks pretty cute.

    Took my niece and nephews today and we all made one, they were pretty flexible about the "children only" policy at our TRU.

    As with anything though these are already going for about $20 on Evil-bay :-(

    Went with some friends and the kids had fun. No real event to it at my TRU though. One employee tossing handle of them on tables with a couple of one steps out. Regardless, fun little set to have.
