As far as I know this collection was only available online at champs or East Bay. I bought mine at champs and they only had the hat and the shoes, at least when I was online in the morning. Not sure about quantity but when I checked later the shoes were sold out.

There is no question that Hasbro approved the incredibly prominent use of their marks on these products - if they had not, Hasbro legal would already by firing off cease and desist letters. That the official Transformers Facebook page is providing coverage of the release of these items serves only as further proof. However, this is neither here nor there.

The bigger issue is that Seibertron, after making a forceful point about dropping news of third party figures on the grounds that they were unauthorized and therefore tangential to 'true' Transformers coverage, is now covering the release of American football apparel - for no other reason than the football player this clothing pays homage to is coincidentally nicknamed 'Megatron'. So transforming robot figures are out, but barely-related sports gear is in? How the hell did things end up so backwards?

The 3rd party figures/toys get coverage anyway, at least indirectly, b/c the online stores who carry them list them in their headlines. Heck, I bet some of the Hasbro employees buy 3rd party items secretly, b/c they know the character/figure will never have a US release and possibly for research.
The very cool Megatron themed Nike CJ 81 collection has been sanctioned by Hasbro/TF, so coverage of this shouldn't be sharply criticized

Hmmm...a bit too flashy to actually rock on court, and I can't quite bring myself to put these on display...get me a classic G1 themed version on the other hand....
