Yeah, I was debating using people instead of things, probably could have made just as big a list. ;)

"Children's toy and cartoon series about alien transforming robots was taken insufficiently seriously. One star."

Seriously this is no more or less harmful than Disney Label or Pepsi Prime. Nothing to get worked up about, and nothing to get worked up about people getting worked up about it. At the very least it means you can reenact Triple Takeover in more detail.

Weapon: Corrosive Slime Shooter
Not really a fan of the Lions, but it's a pretty funny commercial, not as funny as the reaction it got from someone's opinion who got defensive when people pointed out he needed to relax.

But that's just an opinion, you know? Take it as you will. Freedom of speech and all that. (Fun fact: You don't actually have that here, otherwise, no one would be banned ever)

A(nother) fact though would be that, last I'd seen any polling information on it, Vader topped the Greatest Villain of All Time charts for the US and I think Europe, and was only beaten by Char Aznable in Japan. So... Yeah. There's that.

So, take a chill or go light up if you live in Wsahington or Colorado, and remember, they're toys and it's a cartoon. It's nothing to get worked up over. It's not like someone is dying.

I was wrong, this is by far the greatest tragedy in Transformers history:

Now anyone can own the franchise and ruin it!

Yes, by far, that was the greatest offense on this brand. ;)


I think I'd be more excited about this toy if it was the proper Lions colors. What's up with this purple instead of Lions blue?

It's based on one of the Calvin shoes Nike revealed, same purple, same grid design. However, I seem to remember the being available more different colours, so the Megatron we're currently seeing might be one of many variations. It might even be included with the shoe itself.
