Transformers USB memory stick released

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on May 26, 2009 | Merchandise,News |

transformer-usb-flash-driveWe’re having a USB mad day today. Hot on the heals of the Transformers USB hub that looks like Blaster and transforms into a laptop comes this 2GB USB memory stick that Transformers into Ravage, the master of stealth.

The USB stick mode looks just like a micro cassette tape, and then he transforms into the classic Ravage panther mode.

We’re not sure if Ravage will actually fit into the chest of the USB hub Blaster though… now there’s a thought.

Ravage retails for around $43 and you can pre-order one from Big Bad Toy Store now.

Transformers USB Hub

transformers-usb-hub-robot-modeSoundwave may be featuring in the new Transformers movie, Transformers Revenge of the Fallen, but Blaster was always the coolest of the cassette wielding robots. Now you can own your very own Blaster in laptop form, and he has a practical use too.

This Transformers USB hub transforms from a laptop (complete with a Windows XP screen) to a robot (with a tape deck) and the whole while he acts as a 4 way USB hub.

Who could want for anything more? Well, maybe if the laptop actually worked as well, but it doesn’t, sadly.

The Transformers USB hub is from CraziestGadgets and is set to retail for around $42 in the USA. You can pre-order the Transformers USB hub from BBTS here.

Optimus Prime birthday cake

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on May 25, 2009 | Merchandise |

optimus-prime-cakeWe just received an email with a link to this Optimus Prime birthday cake that someone made for their three year old son. This was especially interesting to me as I’ve always wanted an Optimus Prime birthday cake, and have been dropping the most subtle of hints for the last few years, to no avail.

Maybe I could approach whoever made this cake and see if they’ll do it for a fee?

Transformers Nike sneakers

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on May 5, 2009 | Merchandise,News |

niketransformers07If you like your footwear made from plastic, unusable as shoes and with the uncanny ability to transform into Autobots and Decepticons, then Nike has the footwear for you.

By footwear, we mean something resembles footwear, cos you can’t actually wear it… obviously.

Nike has produced some Nike Air III trainers to publicise the upcoming Transformers sequel, Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. Sadly for footwear fans (if there in fact any such things as footwear fans) the trainers aren’t scheduled for any kind of release.

I wonder if you could convince your parents to buy you these as a new pair of trainers?

There was even an advert from Nike some years ago along similar lines where a giant sneaker billboard advert transformers into a robot, which you can see here:

Burger King and TransformersFast food chain Burger King has signed a 3 picture deal to offer promotional toys for the movies: Star Trek, G.I. Joe and Transformers Revenge of the Fallen.

The details of the Transformers toys offered by Burger King are:

TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

Transform Your Way(TM): Starting June 22, fans can look forward to the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen promotion, which will give guests the chance to take home a range of prizes, from $1 million cash to a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro to movie passes and instant-win food items like the CROISSAN’WICH(R) and WHOPPER(R) sandwich. As part of the Transform Your Way(TM) scratch-and-win game, game pieces will be available on specially marked menu items. BURGER KING(R) will also give guests a second chance to win at bktransformers.com, where consumers can navigate interactive online applications to enter daily for a chance to win $10,000.

New BK BBQ DOUBLE STACKTICON(TM) sandwich: The BURGER KING(R) menu will undergo a transformation with this new sandwich. Available for a limited time only for a suggested retail price starting at $2.79 the Transformers-inspired burger allows guests to stack multiple burger patties, bacon, sauce and cheese similar in theme to the “combining” of Transformers characters in the upcoming film.

Advertising by film director Michael Bay: Blockbuster director, Michael Bay, directed the national kid’s television advertising spots that will turn the BURGER KING(R) dining experience on its head. In addition, each BK(R) Kids Meal will come with one of eight Transformers toys that bring the beloved characters and vehicles from the movie to life.

This deal between Burger King and Paramount represents the first movie merchandise deal for Paramount that stretches across more than one movie franchise. LeeAnne Stables is the executive VP for marketing for Paramount. She states:

Burger King has been an excellent partner for us because of the volume of customer traffic.

Burger King and Paramount have enjoyed partnerships before, on the 2007 movie Transformers and 2008’s Iron Man.

The best news yet for Transformers fans is that Transformers 2 director Michael Bay is set to direct a special Burger King advert for Transformers. This ensures that the TV spot for BK has the same style as the much anticipated movie, Transformers Revenge of the Fallen.
