    I'm not buying the ALT Rodimus because the alt mode is an ugly-ass Ford GT. I HATE Ford!!

    Are there any Chevy, Dodge, Ford, or Foreign car people out there who let their real-life car preferences affect their TF buying habits?

    I figured this'd be an interesting topic. THANKS FOR POSTING!!

    No, I'm not a Ford fan, especially after all the problmes we've had from our Focus, but I love the Ford GT's and the new Mustangs.

    Chrevolet ALL THE WAY baby!! I refuse to by any Ford-related ALTs. Although the Dodge ones don't bother me.

    That people buy their toys not just because they're robots but because they enjoy their alt modes (or in this case don't enjoy them.) as well.

    Uhh, you know that Chevrolet isn't it's own company. It's just a subsidiary of General Motors.

    And I really don't care, as long as it looks cool.

    I'm a car enthusiast and I just don't like the Ford GT or any Ford for that matter. It affects my TF buying habits.

    I don't think I would've looked at the movie the same way if all the vehicles were Fords instead of GM products. (If they were Fords I would've rooted for the Decepticons instead of the Autobots.)

    Is anyone else out there the same way? It's starting to look like I'm the only one.

    I guess what I'm trying to point out is that it affects weither or not someone buys your product if you slap a corporate brand label on it.

    The ford GT mold is one of the best there is in the alternators line. great posability, amazing detail, and a cool transformation.

    being a car company fanboy is depriving you of something really great. thats sad.

    I'm getting alt rodimus because he looks cool, I love the mold, I like hot rod, and I want to finish the alternators line.

    I don't see car choice affecting my purchasing habits, being an Alt/BT completist. However, I personally love the Ford GT as a design, although I have nothing but contempt for Ford as a company.

    However you feel about Ford as a company, the Ford GT was one of the most amazing cars ever produced, and the GT40 was a great homage to that heritage.
