Oh wow- how very completely and totally cool of Hasbro and Mr. Archer to do that for the boy!!! I hope he gets his dream family to go with a memory of a lifetime visit.

Ghost jetfire also sounds like a neat idea... :)

That pony may well be the scariest thing in the world ever.

If the sprog had any sense he'd ebay them for a fortune and buy a house. Dumbass kid, no wonder no-one wants him...

Wow, that's really solid of them. It's always awesome to hear about a company doing things for those, who are less-fortunate, especially in the case of children.

IT also gets them free advertising on prime time TV ("They'll be a black Spider-man in shops next year!") so it's not that kindly...

It's a few hundred dollars, but far less creepy than Boobah or Teletubbies. ;)
They've been talking about it on the My Little Pony boards for months because it shares the same name as a G1 and G3 my little pony. Seems it does everything except make a person clean up after it.

On the up side- pretty cool for kids who might be allergic to the real thing.

I live in Rhode Island, so its nice to see that Hasbro gives something back to the community. Its also nice to see a kid excited about Transformers since that is what the line is geared for. Channel 10 does those news segments every week I wish I caught it on the TV.

Yeah, but I'm sure the kid doesn't care. :)

In all honesty, how many people on here have tried to adopt the kid so they can get his Transformers? ;)

That kid's actually pretty sharp. He waited until he could check out each item before thanking them for it.

I could almost swear he was about to go "Eh.... alright." on that last one.
