In an effort to get make sure all "female flesh-creatures" get their men to join the Transformers Collectors' Club, the Club has enlisted the help of Megatron, aka Mega-Spice, in a great parody of the latest Old Spice commercials. The online promo, posted to YouTube, also gives us a brief look at 2011 Club Member Freebie Sideburn, which will be a repaint of Classics Rodimus. The full commercial is embedded below for your viewing enjoyment. It may not convince you to join, but it will make you wish you could ride a Seeker jet in space.

Exactly what would one DO with a membership card? As far as I know there's never been any botcon happenings that required it, you can't present it anywhere for a discount or anything, so it's basically useless. I certainly wouldn't want to geek out my wallet with it, there's enough cards in there already.


(don't mean to sound ornery btw, just some silly sarcasm)

Why cant Hasbro make Transformers cartoons like this? I mean come on!! I'm sorry i dont see TCC making this ad, i see Hasbro chipping in on their behalf. Instead of getting something on this on HUB, we get the cross-blend of Transformers movie and animated all rolled up into one!! This ad is a pure masterpiece and hasbro should redo G1 cartoons in this type graphics and continue on through headmasters and so on....

Except you like this as much as you do because of Nostalgia, and Hasbro is about making money off of the brand and the kiddies know their ANimated and Movie-verse styles. So suck it up, mate, we ain't the target audience. Just be happy Hasbro keeps making G1 Based toys.

There needs to be an Optimus Prime response:

"Transform, and ROLL OUT...into the best night of your life! So, ladies, is your man an Autobot man?" (Jacuzzi explodes into Jetfire.)
