Also, a resin proto of Classics Jetfire, and a look into Aaron Archer's office.

Thanks to David Willis' "Shortpacked" blog for the heads-up.

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.

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.
