Hasbro will soon start giving these out for even thinking about Transformers.

I'd imagine, as that's the first place it showed up. They also gave it out at NYCC and the American Tour thingy


Botcon was in June this year, the SDCC in July, so it deffo showed up at Botcon first. I just wondered how many opportunities Hasbro had taken to pimp this thing out!

Whoops, got my cons backwards xD Though for some reason I thought the little Kreon was SDCC first. Lol. Doesn't really matter.

It seems like they give it out at pretty much anything they host/attend... and then some. I believe HTS was giving them out with purchases over a certain amount for a while and Toys R Us was doing the same (for their online store anyway. They still have the advertisement up actually, but the date has expired). I'm sure the Kreon is so cheap to make they're flinging it around as an intensive & promotional piece.

Well this is about the weirdest sci-fi crossover I've seen! And I'm a fan of both series! O.o

What's next; a Torchwood SUV Transformer? *HINT* :grin:

I've been compiling a scale list (largest to smallest) of the Film Transformers based on; vehicle/alternate modes (with the best dimension data possible), as many official charts I could find & most crucially, the figures I actually own & desire! If anyone would like a bit of assistance in scale or would simply like a peek at the list, do say so! ^^

(Also been working on something big; I'm a writer, so that's a clue... ;))

I can confirm that they were indeed giving these out on location in Toys r us (at least the one if Fort Myers). You needed to purchase at least $10 in transformers merchandise in order to get one. It came in the red brick box as well. On a side note, I also thought that this was from SDCC and not Botcon but it really doesn't matter anymore as they just keep giving him out other ways. I looked at what these were going for on Ebay and they aren't going for much at all or at least they weren't when I first got mine over a week ago.
