Motto: ""I am a warrior. Let the battle be joined.""
Weapon: Electron Gun
And those three pages alone make me prefer the animated series...

Although that one isn't immune. Dinobot Island had Powerglide shilling himself so badly Bumblebaee commented on it! Or Perceptor and Beachcomber with Chip, as well.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

My reviews of Transformers G1, one episode at a time. Stop by for a spell!

Motto: "Innocent!"
Weapon: Wrist-Launched Heat-Seeking Missiles
Pretty much all of the Marvel run under Budiansky was pretty blatant about selling figures nearly every time someone showed up. The infodump in the first ish still gets me every time.

But nothing's more blatant than the first Michael Bay film.
