Well, that's one way to get rid of all that RoTF stuff that no one wants.

It lasts until July 31? Probably why Hasbro isn't shipping any of the new stuff (in the US only apparently) until August 9th... :-?

Hasbro has just made it so that all of you (lucky) people in Australia and Asia can make a killing on selling new stuff to the US market on ebay. ;)

Wow, I gotta say that's one of the weirdest things I've ever seen. They must have MASSIVE amounts of ROTF overstock. I'd go for it if I was in the US and didn't already have 2 of the 3 free figures...

Is this store exclusive?
If not, my Toys R Us happens to have alot of the "hard to get" ROTF figures....
[strike]I could get maybe a HA Barricade and then get a free...SOMETHING....I don't know, ArmorHide...[/strike]
Dang, HA doesn't count....oh well, I can still get Bludgeon, IronHide and stuff....

Almost got me to bite...I just comtemplated going and grabbing a $30 black leader Megs from Walmart so I could get Swerve and Dead End (already have Sideswipe,) but I gotta keep reminding myself that I don't have any need for these repaints even at a good deal. Space is starting to become a factor with my growing collection and I'm not the biggest fan of these molds anyhow. Sideswipe is cool, but I still don't need Swerve.

Too bad I already have 2 of the 3 freebies, and don't want the 3rd.

I would have rather gotten 3 free scouts, would have felt like I got something then. 8-}

The way it's looking, the 8 figures listed on the page are the only ones that qualify for this deal. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

Correction: I'm an idiot. I didn't see that below each picture it listed "ANY"

Looks like you might get any 3 Deluxes, not nec. the ones shown. The fine print on the form says that Hasbro may substitute the giveaway items for others.

The ones you have to buy are any from the classes shown- Legends, Deluxe, etc. Looks like the Bumblebee arm cannon does not count tho, FWIW.

There's not much ROTF left that I want, but I might go for this. Extra Deluxes are not a bad thing, good for trading or parts. Or experimentation... :-$ :twisted:

Huh, whaddaya know? Get ready for some pissed off people who are sent 2 or 3 figs they already have when they were expecting something else. Wonder if they'll just send out 3 Turner Mudflaps to everyone... At least it be one fig no one has, judging buy the 1000s you see filling the pegs at every store. :lol:

2 questions
Does animated count? My tru still has these and I may pick up a lugnut if they do
Do we know it's the 3 figures pictured or random a randomized deluxe 'prize'?

Edit - Q3: "This offer cannot be combined with any other promotional offer, rebate, coupon or discount" so we can't buy transformers that are onsale/marked off?

Good time to start stockpiling for Toys-for-Tots.

You might have thought that Hasbro could have come up wuth a simpler promotion, but I guess any chance for Transfans to save money is a good thing.

So does a marked down shadow Commander Megs count from wallyworld.computer?

That's the only current figure I don't own/want.

I'll bite, considering I just bought half of the required amount(Red Rampage) today before I even knew about this. I think I know where a few more I want are to finish things out.

And if it's the 3 there's showing they send, all the better, as I don't have any of those yet.

Considering the promotion is based on a dollar amount, I don't see why it would matter. I'm guessing the fine print is more to protect against double dipping on another promotion like a rebate or something...
