More Crappy Transformer "Toys"

I might be coming across as a bit of a Transformers geek but I barely qualify as a casual fan. I came across this and thought it was so ridiculous that I had to share it.

A couple weeks ago I posted about the first toys emerging for the new Transformers movie. It was some sort of fiery-comet-motorcycle-thingy or a plastic ball of crap that transformed into a robot. Now we've got Convoy and Megatron Transformers that transform into a half scale Nike running shoe.

That's right kids a plastic shoe that's too small to actually wear. This is ridiculous, a shoe! C'mon who wants to play with a shoe, even poor kids have better toys than this. Ohh the minutes of fun they'll have!

This has me wondering if the movie is going to be a giant commercial moving from one product placement to another. Can't Wait!

I have to admit it does look like a pretty sweet shoe.

I cant believe this.... that movie is going down hill pretty fast and its 5+ months away.

they did nail down the shoe look.. but if you look they're cheating... the robot "wings" that look like the sides of the shoe and probably cover the entire robot in shoe mode.
