I'd prefer a Prime in lime green colors. Have him come in a Mountain Dew 12 can case (reinforced with a window of course). Would be cooler if it was the leader class movie Prime as well. But I'm probably really reaching.

I would love to see either of those happen.

Since I first saw this story on 2005 a few hours ago, I've seen nothing but disdain for Mountain Dew. What's so bad about it? I thought it was quite well liked over in the States.

A select few just hate how sugary it is. And some still cling to the false information that it causes your genitalia to shrink or become useless.

I love the Mountain Dew. I mostly only drink Diet Mountain Dew myself.

Just like they did with Superman Returns last year. You latch onto the biggest movie of the year and market the hell out of it. Bay and Co. won't mind...Pepsi probably paid through the nose for the rights. It's nothing but free pub for the movie...this thing continues to impress me with exactly how HUGE it's going to be.

Cheap, Optimus carried Pepsi(I'm sure while dreaming of a Coke)for years, and all they do in return is throw back a Mountain Dew.

I wouldn't call the upcoming Transformers movie the "biggest movie of the year" just yet. Both Spider-Man 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End already have stronger claims to the title {with PotC 3 possibly being in the best position to take the honor since PotC earned over a billion dollar's last year}.

But no doubt about it - Paramount is going to make sure TF Live is going to be one of this years "BIG" movies, particularly since it'll have some breathing room between it and PotC 3 and S-M 3.


It'll be interesting to see Pepsi's TF themed commercials when they hit TV. I wonder how they'll incorporate the transforming angle into them...

I'd like to see it come out in America. Sure, you could buy it from Action-HQ; I just think it'd be cool if it came out here in the states.

By the way the slogan is "transform your summer" it is probably some form of trip giveaway as well as figures probably

Yes, I'm hoping this results in a North American Pepsi Prime release on Hasbro's part.

This all sounds good to me. I could see some really unique cross-marketing here, if things are done right. I like Mountain Dew and such, but I have to admit that I'm a Coke fan at heart (hey, I live near Atlanta, give me a break :lol: ).
