...And the list of totally excessive, but really cool Transformers Movie promotional items continues to roll out.

A picture of the 'transforming', yes, transforming TARGET exclusive gift card has shown up.

The card does it's best to represent movie Prime in robot mode, and a sort of un-robot mode that has the shape of card, but attributes of the truck alt form.

Check out the image here.

I wonder if it is free (not costing anything in addition to what is on the gift card).

Why do I get the strange feeling that I'm going to be getting these things around my birthday?

...well then.

I guess all you need to do is buy a gift card for $5, then buy something with said gift card, then ask if you can keep the (now empty) card as a memento.

I figure there's a unique barcode on the back that they can scan to register the discount. Since the card is valid only at Target, they can just uplink to their database to determine the remaining value on that particular robo-card.

Don't feel bad, you and I, and several others know you were the first to post it here. Let him steal the thunder, you were in the right, it'll look bad on him.

First of all, I never claimed to 'find' the news, I simply posted it. As I was doing it during my job, I did not have the time to search the forums for previous authors...

If you want to be credited for the news, make sure you use the 'SUBMIT NEWS LINK'. I think there a few on here who can attest for that.

However, I do understand that you were there first, but there is no reason to act that way. We are doing the best we can around here, and when mistakes are made we tend to correct them. You do know that this is not any of our salary earning jobs, don't you?

As for your comment Autobot032, it's just not helping things...instead why don't you encourage Wheeljack35 to use the 'SUBMIT NEWS LINK' or PM a news member to look at your thread...

Instead of hoping that something will change that's bothering you, contact someone.

BTW, I gave you credit for the story Wheeljack35.

When they are released and by buying a target gift card.

I wonder if they will slide scan okay??? Or if they will have to use that bar code gun to read them??

Very clever... I like it. Both the idea and the execution are top-notch, and whoever's responsible deserves a raise. I'm definitely going to make sure I get one of these.

That's really cool. I don't think I've ever seen a transforming gift card before, I'll have to get one just to have it.

I know I shouldn't be suckered in, but I too think I'll have to get one of these.

Well, this certainly is.......interesting to say the least. I know I'll pick it up, but I just never imagined they would re-invent the gift card to the likeness of TFs'.

*edit* Aww crap. I have to have been living under a rock. Did AK step down from his News Crew Position? I swear, I'm on this site every day, & I don't even know what goes on around me. Damn..................

One would logically assume that you'd get them at Target around the time the movie is released. :wink:
