Default Convoy and Megatron as... transforming shoes

BBTS

They're both left-foot shoes. Lame. They should make a pair...

Wasn't there a commercial once where a giant shoe on a billboard transformed?

What's that, 1/2 scale models of Nike shoes? That's retarded. Oh, so they turn into piles of sh*t with a Transformer's head? Oh, well, now it makes sense.

They're taking this merchandising things a little too far. That seriously exhorted a wtf response from me. Nike did a transforming shoe contest a few years ago, but that made sense, being a shoe company and all. This really has nothing to do with the movie, and it's not like you'll be able to wear them. All in all, this may be the most worthless cross-promotion that they've done.

Okaaay…….? Well, look what just crawled out of a "3rd world" sweatshop.
I’m not in the habit of posting threads like this but…this a f!ckin’ stupid interlocking, market strategy. This is a bit excessive, even for Hasbro.

Eh?

Hmmmm...

I guess the iPod and these shoes are what Takara meant when they said they'd be concentrating on 'sports and music'.

Different than I had imagined hearing that...

I think it's likely Hasbro have some form of Monopoly on Tfs thanks to the upcoming movie, and Takara are thinking laterally...

Very laterally...

Still, these 'bots look cool. Pity they turn into shoes... That just doesn't do it for me!

Hmm, Convoy must be depreciating in value then.
