Apparently M&M have this offer in the States where you buy M&Ms or Snickers bars at Target and you can send away for a candy dispenser.

Sometimes living in NZ sucks. Am thinking of contacting Mars NZ to see if they're going to offer them here. Because they look awesome.

Unfortunately Mars NZ don't appear to have a contact email, just a street address and phone number, so I may have to put pen to paper or some such.

Hmm, then I could simulate one by buying a normal dispenser and gluing a Robot Hero to the top. :)

How much do you really want one? I could buy the candy and send for it. It takes 2-3 months for it to arrive. Then I could mail it off to you. It would only cost you shipping. My kids (and sadly me) would probably eat the candy or I'll save it for Halloween so you wouldn't have to buy that.

So, how bad do you want a plastic M&M Transformer dispenser?

Ok, picked up the candy today. I will get the order form out in the next few days. That should mean August/September arrival. I'll let you know then what postage will be. If it is just simple plastic (which is my guess) then it should be reasonable. If by some chance it is metal and glass, then it will be heavy and probably NOT reasonable.

The die-cast ones on their online store are $35, so I'd assume that they wouldn't be giving away something that expensive for free. :)

Believe it or not, the dispenser has arrived already. I could hear it rattling inside the box so I have opened it up. I will pack it up so it won't rattle as bad and then let you know how much shipping will be. I need your home address. Send it to my home email. brenda at nickelrocket dot com.
