Australian boy: "They're robots that convert, grandpa!"

Keep up that marketing, Hasbro. :roll:

@Sabrblade:
"Why are they called transformers?"
"Because they change their physical appearance from one shape to another."
"Well that's a mouthful, there has to be an easier word for that."
"Like what?"
"Um... Transformers.... change.... forms..... transition.... between forms.... trans... fo-OH they convert. Yeah, transformers convert! It makes so much sense!"

this conversation was had between no two people ever, except maybe in Hasbro's marketing department.



Anyway the commercial was pretty fun, even if the kid did not talk like an actual kid. I wouldn't mind seeing more like this.

It's kind of a necessity though. Hasbro has to use "convert" instead of "transform" in order to avoid trademark dilution, especially since they own that particular trademark. Should it get to the point that "transform" can be used anywhere in advertising, it will be considered generic and thus unable to be trademarked.

Then what would we call our favorite toyline? Convertors?! :shock:

I know why they do it but that doesn't mean it doesn't sound silly to say that Transformers "convert" when their name is literally a noun form of a verb that describes what they do.

You could call it "Transformers Mexico" but that wouldn't mean they're Mexican now would it?

They are NOT Australian.

You know what's great?

Accents.

Had a crazy idea the other day and I'm kind of sad I didn't follow through. Local TRU had both warrior class versions of Power Surge Optimus. Has anyone kitbashed both of them together to make a super pretty version? I'm currently searching but have yet to come across anything..

no one has done that yet. But I am wondering, what part of the Clash one would you change? The legs maybe? I really like everything torso up.
