Hooper_X It's great how the first ten or so and the last five or so are pretty standard LOOK HOW COOL THIS TOY IS spots, but for about a year's worth of ads, we got hilariously forced rapping and awful puns.
(it's also surprising how much the CGI improved by the end.)
Stopheles It doesn't surprise me that they backed away from the rapping -- how the hell do you follow up a commercial that refers to the "illin'" gun possessed by a "triple-change villain that's chillin'"?
Stopheles In '91, when I was working at Marvel as an intern, the editorial office responsible for the Transformers comic held TRANSFORMERS: THE WAKE when the book was cancelled. Somewhere in my parents' house is the gift bag that was handed out at Phoebe's bar after work to all who came to mourn the passing of Shockwave et al.
"Warriors" doesn't rhyme with "lazer-blades," btw.
Hooper_X no shit? i know some internet nerd types who would likely pay you for the contents of said baggie. (not me.)
futurebot What's remarkable to me is just how certain we can be that they spelled laser with a Z.
Hugo Gorilla I've never been that big into Transformers, but the idea of Megatron as a tank irritates me.
thebaronsdoctor It makes sense to me. I mean, how threatening is a robot that changes into a handgun when compared to a robot that transforms into a rolling death machine?
Caminante Nocturno Dreadwing looked pretty cool until they described his Gatling gun as illin'.
