If the ad features The King driving Prime, then I will have to buy a burger from them to support the hilarity.

Or perhaps Prime transforms INTO The King.

Man, I want a burger really bad.

I would totally buy a Burger King themed voyager Prime figure. With the flip-down driver replaced with The King, obviously. Oh yes.

Why would Prime want to buy fast food? Or any food for that matter...

Maybe Sam is inside.

Good point. :lol:

Well, if a robot was ordering food, I'd understand why he'd want something greasy.

Along those lines, maybe instead of supersizing an order, one could have it "Optimized"?

I think Prime's calling out the Burger King (aka the modern-day boogeyman).

lol...BK should use the Protect/Destroy teaser poster and use the Burger King in it.

(mock) Shock Horror!

I wonder how many Burger King restaurants will be seen in the film?
We already know that almost every scene with a Transformer in it will be a GM product placement, but I wonder how many Pepsi, BK and other product placements we will be seeing?
Anyone think Spielberg may throw an E.T. Poster in somewhere?
