Thanks to several submissions over on the Seibertron.com Facebook page, we now have confirmed sightings, with pictures and pricing.

There are two variants of this set, the first of which features Bumblebee and comes with 27 lenticular valentines. These valentines feature changing images when the card is moved from left to right.

The second set features Powermaster Optimus Prime on the cover and includes 34 valentines and 35 temporary tattoos.

Both are priced at $3.99 and have been sighted at King Soopers, Krogers, Target and K-Mart. Wal*Mart usually carries items such as these and can't be too far behind.

My kids are not "valentine" age. I have no reason to buy them. And yet... I must have them. I'll be headed out tomorrow to look for them just because I want them! :-B

Hey, hey, hey! We are all valentine age. Especially if Optimus and Bumblebee are plastered all over the front. Heck, I'll label some to myself from myself because they're awesome.

Valentine age. Pfft.

Ha! Yes. That reminds me, I may need multiple boxes because my kids will certainly want to play with some, little TF fans that they are. Ooh, I'm excited.

Nothing says "I love you, be mine" like a robot civil war toy franchise.

To be fair, my favourite comics valentines will always be the promo material for the Remender Venom series. :D

I have no valid reason to get these, but I am going to have to for pure nostalgia sake. These are too cool!

I love how these all have a giant 84 on them like that number means anything to kids.

Ha! I almost spit my drink out when I read this. Awesome!

I'll get a set of each if I can find them here in Tampa—so far no luck. Maybe we don't approve of giant robot love here in the Sunshine State.

Bumblebee cover with lenticular designs set found! They were even on sale. King Soopers (Kroger) had them in the regular Valentine displays. They had a Prime set, too, but I didn't pick those up.

When I was checking out, the cashier said, "Oh, your kids must be excited to give these out." I said, "Oh, no. My kids aren't in school yet. These are for me." She gave me a pretty weird side eye. :lol: But, it made me think I may buy another box and send them to family and friends... Because they don't think I'm weird enough already.

I'll be headed to Kmart on Monday to try and find the Optimus cover box, so I can pick up a couple sets of them, too.

It's weird how very 1984 these are. Kids probably wouldn't get it, and older fans probably wouldn't buy it.

Surprised they didn't do the obvious and had them "change" into their alt modes.

I think the main reason they're so 1984 is the 30th Anniversary. I don't necessarily agree that kids won't be into them, as my son LOVES the original series, and really enjoys it. However, I do accept that he is in the minority, so to speak, as being the kids of a TF obsessed parent. his TF experience is a bit more "in depth" than most kids. But I imagine some kids probably just think they look cool and choose them anyway, I dunno. I'll throw them in the "misc merch" part of my collection, as I think they're cool. :KREMZEEK:

They're all of the above. They're meant for kids in grade school to hand out to each other on Valentines day. Theyre little heavy paper cards, sometimes with stickers or temporary tattoos or whatever on them.

I always do silly Valentines for the girls at work. Last year was X-Men, the year before was Rugrats. Looks like Transformers this year. :grin:

Haha, sounds fun! I'm going to try to find some small envelopes and send these to a few friends and family. I think it'll be fun!
