Offbeat Transformers Collectibles: "Red" M&M's Dispenser
Last year, as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was coming out in movie theaters, the folks who make M&M's did a promotion alongside Target. Buy five bags of M&M's from Target, send in the receipt, and get this M&M's dispenser with the red M&M character dressed up as movie Optimus Prime on top for free (you didn't even have to pay for shipping!). I seem to recall a yellow version, with the yellow M&M character dressed up as movie Bumblebee, which one could buy at Toys R Us at about the same time for the ridiculous price of $15, but since you could actually buy five bags of M&M's for less than that (I paid about $2.50 each bag. Sales are great!), I figure this was the better deal no matter how you cut it!
