    Huh! You damn right baby. Me and them, the giant robits, we's teach all the children to drink their milk and drink it hard. Ain't just no, calcium sermon no more, is a big damn metal robit calcium sermon. Make your booones hard like metal! Like Milk Daddy! Milk Daddy's hard, baby. Harder than stone.

    (I wish I had transformers telling me to drink milk when I was young :(  )

    Transformers on milk cartons. I admit to reading the sides of my milk cartons and any cheesy bit of comic panel humor I could gather was valued as a kid.

    Optimus is really different from that though. Its such a heroic and cool character image. They may actually be counting on how much this will be noticed, I would'nt be surprised if transformers are going to be the number one boys action figure toy this year as well with how the masses are diving into the franchise.

    I remember when we used to have milk in schools over here. How they expected a five year old to drink an entire pint of ice cold milk in one sitting is still a mystery to me. We did get cheesy biscuits too though. :)

    "Calcium is the right of all sentient beings!"


    Its weird, I don't think I've ever seen advertising for like a cartoon on a milk carton. Of course, I don't think I've even seen any pictures of missing kids on milk cartons here in Canada. The fact our milk comes in plastic bags for the most part probably doesn't help that.

    Its legit, I've been wanting to take a picture of them with my phone but I always forget, there's at least two adds with Bumblebee and one with Bulkhead.

    I wonder when BBTS will get these.

    And was anybody else reminded of Miltank with the phrase "Drink milk and roll out!"?

    Maybe the milk distributors are huge TF Animated fans, and they are worried because season 3 is missing?
