    Well, at the very least Hasbro can now say that Transformers count as party games. :lol

    They already tried that in the 80's

    The Sixshot commercial featured a string of kids bragging about how many modes they figured out, and the Quickswitch commercial challenged the kids to see how quickly they could do all six.

    And they also featured "Sealed" instructions, to prove your coolness.

    My favorite part of that whole thing was in the Sixshot commercial, there was one kid who just sucked.

    Kid 1: I got 3!
    Kid 2: I figured out 4!
    Kid 3: I did two...
    Kid 4: I got five!
    Kid 5: I got all six!

    Though none of them got the "Secret 7th Mode" so they all suck, but Kid 3 was just sad :)

    In her slight defense, he took me forever to get back into car mode the first few times (though it definately didn't take three hours).

    I was hoping someone would sign in and ......... well mock her basically, lol.

    I hadn't touched a TF in in like 20 years when I bought Barricade and Bumblebee in 07. The first one I opened and played with was Barricade and he was figured out and TF'ing back and forth within a half hour. It's nice to know two engineers, a draftsman, a teacher and two administrative secretaries combined don't have the brain power of a professional musician.

    and people think musicians are dumb. :dj  :rock :dj

    two engineers, a draftsman, a teacher and two administrative secretaries, eh? Apparantly no CHILDREN were used in this experiment. Kid would have gotten it in 5 minutes, tops. :D 

    Fire the two engineers for incompetence
    Fire the Draftsman for failing to see the design of toys workings
    Fire the Teacher for failing to comprehend
    And fire the two Administrative Secretaries for failing to think outside the box

    There, I feel better now. :)

    Maybe they passed it around while they were all waiting in line for their unemployment checks.

    Kids seem to have that creative juice that some adults somehow lose. Us lucky ones still got it though. I'm a kid at heart, and I'm pretty glad of that. :)
