Mountain Dewbot - action figure c'mon!
What would his name be, Fuzz?
I think at BotCon they call him 'Dispensor'
he was cool enough for a figure in that split second...
can anyone dig up a pic of him or not? hehe
For some reason as soon as I saw that name it made me laugh pretty well
I hate to be the downer of the party, but...
...they never made a Signal Lancer figure despite all the cries by fanboys, so I doubt Dispensor will be any different.
He needs one badly, and repaints for all pepsi products.
Corporate seekers. xD
Poptab(pepsi), Dispensor(Dew), Fizz(sierra mist), and Glug(uh, whatever is left).
Signal lancer was also only a traffic light, that the fan plea came at the end of the series. This line is still good, and going strong through this year with new releases. And product placement is always good.
Was anyone else surprised at just how fully rendered and detailed he was!? I mean, damn, how did they keep him a secret for so long?
Well, i mean, he was in the website game, but we never saw art or leaked renders or heard any news
You can play as Dewbot in this online videogame:
It's pretty fun.
I love that game.
I was more shocked by how...unresolved he was, did he die with the allspark's destruction or what?
is Dispensor Autobot or Decepticon?
The Mountain Dew bot was just a cheap marketing ploy. Have you bought Mt Dew lately? It has Transformers all over the bottle. Same thing with E-bay. It's all advertising. Notice that "Dispenser" was shooting cans of Mountain Dew? Just like General Motor's "Transform you ride", it's all about sponsorship. Why do you think Bumblebee became the 2008 Camaro?
what i dont understand is why the allspark is bringing these machines to life with built in weapons
really? I thought TF period was a cheap marketing ploy. I mean I wouldnt have any TF Merchandise if it werent for the cartoons and movies
It's all advertising, my friend. But we can enjoy it regardless. I laughed out loud when I saw the Mt Dew vending machine come to life and shoot Mountain Dew cans Not to mention the Xbox. Microsoft got into the advertising before Sony or Nintendo, so thats why we didn't see a Wii or PS3 transform.
Regardless, it's a great movie. Sorry... to pinpoint irrelevant facts. I work in advertising.
I can't wait for the sequel... I've read Soundwave will be in it.
When was this? At the Hasbro panel when they said they where looking at doing more movie toys based on fan reaction and the mob yelled out “DEW-BOT!” They chuckled and said after how we had reacted to it over the weekend they where thinking about it but that’s all I really heard about it beside hopeful talk from the fans.
You win sir, you win
