I'm not sure I understand the excitement behind these "skins" in general. Transformers skins are kind of cool, but I think I'd tire of them pretty quickly. The systems have a designer shape already. Why mess with that?

I can barely tell who's on them. One looks like Optimus, one is Bumblebee, one is maybe Jazz, and one looks like Megatron. Do you get all four for $15? That'd be kind of expensive for one skin.

Yeah, Ryan, I know. Wii would like to play.

And for that matter, what about the big PS2, or the old Xbox? Just wondering because that's what I've got.

Don't go buy the image for the Xbox 360 skins. You're right about Prime and BB but the image is too small to tell on the ones your not sure about. All the other listings for the skins explain what they are. I'll quote the one for the PS2 for who's being used:

Gamestop.com wrote:The PS2 Slim Transformers Skin comes in 4 styles: Barricade, Bumblebee, Megatron and Optimus. Styles are chosen at random when shipped.


I'm with dj_funk_gut. I don't like the fact that they're chosen at random either. I mean, I like Bumblebee and Prime, but for me the jury's still out on Meg and Barricade.

My vote for the HOF goes to my favorite Transformer, Kup, to the Headmasters (who still need new figures that aren't just the characters without their master components) and to seibertron.com for for being the ultimate TF resource.

Nevermind: it should be for the newer consoles. That's why I see where Ryan's coming from with Wii (despite my pun). I'm also wondering at this late hour just why it is that it's the slim PS2, and not the PS3? Maybe it's just the consoles that will carry the movie game, but even then the question remains: Why PS2, not PS3?

From the looks of things, these would be a lot cooler if they were just the Bot and Con symbols from the movie on both sides.

They aren't going to sell any online if they're chosen at random. That's just lazy that they don't make an option to choose on their site.

Nice skins. I'll be sure to get one for my DS Lite, and maybe one for my PSP.

There's supposed to be a PS2 version. Chances are, it'll be very inferior to the PS3/360/Wii versions.

Yes, but for the slim PS2's only. We are referring to the original model of the PS2, which wasn't nearly as slim.
