Ok. Now you all know I'm definitely in a downward spiral in regards to Transformers in 2007 and all so that may make me a bit cynical about some of the more useless non-toy product they hope fans mindlessly purchase but this one really seems to be the most pointless in my book.
Why oh why?!?!?
While it might cause panic on Earth, the idea of the Transformers and Marvel's Avengers meeting each other has caused excitement both among fans and deep in the halls of comic publishing houses.That just screams as copy ad from a marketing department.
At least TFs and GIJoe have a history of development both in comics and even in the TF cartoon to some extent.
But the frigg'n Avengers? Ugh!
This strange team-up even extends to toy products that Evebird and I were discussing the other day.
Hasbro will be cranking out those deformed TFs like they do Star Wars and Marvel characters right? And they are now churing out Star Wars Transformers and so forth.
Hasbro seems to be mixing and matching their product "types" regardless of the brand to maximize profits. Ok. I understand that. They are a business.
But exactly when can we expect an official Transformers AND GIJoe toyline?!?!?!
They are both essentially owned exclusively by Hasbro, have a history together that goes back 20 years, and quite frankly is the most logical cross-over product.
Am I blind in this? Am I retarded here?
