And now, another product trying to bank off of Transformers fame

Motto: "Gravity Hurts"
Weapon: Razor Tipped Wing Swords
I saw this, and immediately thought "wow, thats just sad"

I mean, there are knockoffs, there are ripoffs, but this, this is a special kind of blatant stupid that deserves it's own little spot on the list of stupids. They even colored one like Thomas the Train Engine to boot!

That being said, the product itself is admittedly, pretty clever.
But that's not how you should advertise.

Motto: "When did I get this tattoo?"
Weapon: Thrust Gun
I couldn't help but think this was part of a skit from a comedy show......

But then....and therefore....

Dear GOD there is so many things wrong with this, it's hard to explain.

Then how about you enlighten us as to how they SHOULD advertise then? Clearly you must be an expert.

I personally loved it. Brilliant idea. Good luck to them!

Im no expert, though Im flattered you would think that, thank you burn! However, a good idea would be to come up with something original, not the 2007 TF trailer but with porcelain train sets.

Oh, well to each his own. Like I said, the product itself is clever. They just advertised it banking off of current hype involving everyone's favorite transforming robots, and I thought it was stupid that they did that. Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
