$10 giftcard with Skyfall/Powerglide/Hardhead purchase at walmart.com

wow, i was just on walmart.com, and i saw that if you buy any of the three, you can get a $10 e-gift card with each with free site-to-store shipping, that makes them a bit more tempting of a purchase at net $20 each. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=13020945 hope everybody didnt ...

At 0:47... what is he doing? Being pensive? Lost in thought? Brain dead? :sick:

Even overlooking Stan's incredibly dated vocal style and rap-boy being a Shinoda knockoff, the constantly-smirking guitarist totally negates what little credibility there may have been.

Just let it go, Stan...

The thing that bothers me most about these half-arsed repaints is not just that you end up with a weak (at best) rendition of a character, but that it also takes away any chance of a decent future release, one that would actually LOOK like the real deal. Yeah, i know the idea of Strafe or any of the...

This should be stickied somewhere, like the toy forum or something. Agreed. One of the Mods has to do that, right? Do they add the sticky too? :confused: In the meantime, some excellent Universe deals still available on Amazon: Voyager Heavy Load $6.99 http://www.amazon.com/Transformers-Universe-Vo...

Awesome! Thanks for the heads up! It seems the "holiday25" works even if you're below $50. Nice! Glad to be of service. :) EDIT: Looks like the free shipping doesn't apply when you use the holiday25 code, so try both to see what gives you the best deal. If you want both, your total AFTER the 25% of...

hmmm... well, i think a big qualifier for "non-bootleg" could be if the product was made with the specific intent to compliment/complete/improve an official TF release (in the case of accessories), or to continue/create a series that was felt to be lacking (in the case of figures), either due to can...
