    I dunno, the American toy ads always struck me as far less impressive because of the stupid law that requires the commercial to show human hands operating them - because yes, consumers are stupid enough to think they transformby themselves.

    Don't remember that commercial but that man is an ex pro football player and quite the big name at the time (Webster's father on tv).

    For some reason the commercial gave me flashes of wishbooks I loved looking at as a kid.

    Wow, that video was a nostalgic kick in the nuts. I remember how it made me panic that they were all going to sell out before my brother and I could get any more of them.

    Don't you mean that the other way around? That TV ad beat Tim & Eric by 20+ years.

    Hey, don't be hatin' on Mr. Papadapolis. Besides having an illustrious career in college football and the NFL, he was also a pro wrestler and the guy who punched out a horse in "Blazing Saddles."

    :lol  He's actually already a hall of famer.

    You guys must be very easily amused. I don't see anything hilarious about the commercial at all.

    "Go now while your stores have a good selection"

    You mean besides the fact that they were put into production for the sake of promoting one of the greatest toy lines in earth's history?
