While shopping for Easter candy at Wal-Mart, I stumbled across the store's selection of pre-packaged baskets.
Imagine my surprise when I saw that one style of basket had a 5-piece set of "changeable airplane robots" that are exact repaints of the original Superion set!
They even include all of the accessories (i.e. head, chest plate, feet, etc.) for Superion! I still remember getting that original set for Christmas one year...nice!!
I tried taking a picture on my cell phone but my battery was dead! Sorry about that.
Anyway, I don't know if anyone is even interested in this, but I thought it was pretty sweet to see some old school toys on the cheap, and figured if someone still had most of their G1 collection or wanted to update them, this would be an easy way to do it.
(BTW: I live in Louisville, but I imagine most Wal-Marts around the USA will have the same stock.)

I saw these figures along with some Constructicon repaints at a Big Lots. I thought about getting them, but then where would my Joes go?
My other toy...

I have all of those knock off sets they are worth it. I would only pay $10 each but setting them up is a lot of fun. I can post some pics when I get home. Buy it.

I actually think these are terrible. The quality on them is just bad and they break apart and become loose way too easily. Best KO I found at local stores was devastator at Walgreens.

Yeah they've had easter baskets like this for a few years but I don't consistently see them year after year.
