Those look more like they would be the Under-3 promotions.

Prime wants a fist bump. Who can deny him a fist bump?

I know it's a typo, but "Protomion" almost sounds like one of those odd, obscure TF terms.

Strange concept here, Transformers popping out of food.

Yeah, it seems like a step down from the Food-Change-Ables of my youth. Still, I suddenly want these more than the "BoxMaster" KFC deal...and this furthers confusion over which fast food companies have the DOTM tie-in in which countries.

No way of knowing who's in the drink, unless that aircraft carrier at the end of ROTF actually was Broadside, and Bumblebee actually looks pretty cool with fry-wings. But what the heck's that round thing in the background? It almost looks like a tape-measure with 3 color-keys on it.

Children who play with these toys will grow up to develop stripper cake fetishes.

I actually really like those, especially Optimus. Hopefully these come over here (assuming they're actually McD toys).

Imagine Prime will pop out of a Big Mac with a war cry: "GIVE ME YOUR FACE" - nightmare fuel.

I want Big Mac Prime soooo bad!! I love campy toy burger stuff like that.

I wish the Prime inside was a little cooler but whatever.

Look again guys,it looks like they are Transformers Prime,not DOTM.

After looking at it again, this wouldn't be a DOTM promotion, it would be a Prime promotion, wouldn't it? That's definitely Prime Optimus and Bumblebee. Could this be Prime's first toys even before the actual figures come out? On the same note, I can't believe they're only coming out in December. I was sure the first wave (Arcee, BB, SS) and the Entertainment Pack would be out sooner than later as a sort of preview wave.

I need those. It's like combining plastic crack and McCrack in one.

Yeah, that's cool but I have my McDonald's Optimus Prime. If they release it in the states, I'll be all over it though!

Wow, a typo and mistook Prime designs for DOTM. I really shouldn't news stuff while under the influence of NyQuil.

I remember back when you got a little action figure when the promotion was for an action figure brand...

my, things have changed.

It definitely reminds me of those old McDonalds toys.

These look cool. I'd be interested in owning some.

super-size? you ask me if I want to super-size?I'm pretty sure this is what those cities were referring to when they banned happy meal toys. lets stuff horrible food around re-occurring characters to get you to peddle our precious chump change into Americas proverbial smoking gun aimed at the consumer-ready youth. bang one down bang one down. megatron might not be a gun anymore but he still knows where to aim the ol' fusion cannon, eh boys an girls. i don't know why Hasbro hasn't licensed their own brand of morphine to go along with the awful movie verse. maybe i would at least get a bit of dopamine out of Optimus cramming every bit of an hour and a half of a Chevy commercial into bumblebee's "bug" side. nothing will ever bring back the innocence of childhood Hasbro, nothing. yeah i want it super-sized... lets hope these children just don't "choke" down more then they can chew.
