    I remember when the original ones came out I was able to get all the figurines (with some doubles) but I never saw a single one of the pencil toppers.I\'m hoping maybe this time I can get at least one of them.

    I'm confused. I've read that Kinder Surprise can't be sold in the US because adding a toy to chocolate makes it too appealing to kids and promotes the consumption of more sugar. Is it because these are technically water that makes it ok?

    The main reason Kinder Surprise can't be sold in the US is because it's viewed as a choking hazard, with the actual toy being inside the chocolate. We have Kinder Joy still, which just has the toy and chocolate packaged next to each other

    I really hope they use some of the other Evergreen designs for the Transformers unrelated material at some point because they just keep using the same old four. Starscream, Megatron, Optimus and Bee.

    see earlier in the thread: supposedly its because in kinder surprise the thing you're supposed to eat is wrapped around the thing that might choke you, these toys are packaged outside the consumable.

    I was actually talking about this on Twitter yesterday but it seems like they had extra RID2015 stuff because I was like "shouldn't this be Earthspark stuff? RID15 ended years ago."

    Someone's actually pointed out that toy-driven shows don't usually get running until a few years into their run, as someone's pointed out that MLP FiM didn't get that much merch outside of McDonald's figurines until S3 premiered.

    The general assumption is that these are leftovers from the previous Drink & Play promotion which was RID15-themed. Not sure why they’d sit on the merchandise for 8 years, though…
