I shudder to think what they would charge for a USB drive with a decent amount of space on!!! 4Gb is so 2008! ;) 8Gb is bare min in my book.

not worth it, they look cool & all but you could probably make your own for a fraction of the price their asking with more space. Most they should be is 15 for the 4gb & around 20 for the 8.

Meh.
Easy pass.
They don't transform.
They don't come in decent capacities.
They cost too much for the capacities that are available.

When they come out with the life-size fully transformable and posable Megan Fox, Then I'll be one of the first in line to get one! LOL

I'd rather have a regular black plastic flash drive with the logos stamped on than this ugly doodoo.

I had a die cast metal bottle opener that came with Camel cigarettes or something. My friend gave it to me. It looked cool--it was a bike chain with a cross. But eventually the stress of opening bottles broke it. I am betting if you actually use this thing to open bottles regularly it won't hold up.

Can you say unnecessary?

I could just imagine trying to open a beer with on of those silly things.

The edge wouldn't catch and you'd keep goin at it and the bottle cap itself would start gouging the hook on the hub cause it's low grade aluminum and render it useless. Then you'd really start wrenching at it to at least open ONE freakin bottle for cryin out loud!! Then the whole thing would start crumbling in your hands from the force your using to try and make it do it JUST ONCE!

All speculation of course but i've come across enough of those poorly designed gimmicky bottle openers and they absolutely suck every time.

Oh yeah.....and there's not enough space for the price either... ;)

Cool, but too expensive. Should be at least 16gb for that price

Yeah smart combo !!! Mess up my USB when Im drunk as hell. Maybe by getting it wet with beer or accidentally flicking across the room opening a bottle. How about shot glasses with faction signs instead ???
