    Yeah i saw the commerical this morning on cartoon network. It was a pretty dull commerical. It showed Jetfire and jetstorm in plane mode then they did a split screen w/ one bot on each side transforming into bots. (actual change time will vary) Then they had a dramatic pause then they fused to safeguard.

    thinking about it I've not seen a TF add since the start of animated

    Maybe that's a good thing? I mean transformers sell and they don't have many if any ads that says a lot about the strength of a brand when they don't need to care about advertisement

    Haha. I just saw it.

    Me: That was a disappointing commercial! It was sorta stupid.

    My Little Brother: Don't you have those toys?

    Me: Your point?

    I just saw it, too. It's pretty much exactly like the other commercials, only with Safeguard. Nothing much to see.

    I saw it too. I really wished they included animation of Jetfire and Jetstorm transforming into Safeguard.

    neat. The one toy commercial I've seen for animated, and it's for the worst looking toy.

    Brilliant.

    Imagine a commercial interlaced with footage from the show, then at the end of the commercial you see Bulkhead, Bee, Prime, Prowl, and Ratchet standing in cool poses left to right, then the image flips to Leader Bulkhead, Activators Bee, Voyager Prime, Deluxe Prowl and Ratchet standing in the same pose making the same image.

    Most kids would be like, "Holy crap those toys look just like the cartoon!"

    They'd be in scale, and you just advertised the Leader class, Voyager, Deluxe, and Activators.

    Bam! All the toys, in scale, matching the animation.

    SOLD!!

    But hey, what do I know. Not like I'm some cool Hasbro guy that gets to come up with ideas.

    Eric is right. Some animation could've helped a lot for the toys.
