    Fox NFL Sunday Robot, replaced by Optimus Prime

    Sorry, but I don't have a screen cap of it.

    If you watch the NFL on Fox today, the infamous (pointless) mascot robot has been replaced by Optimus Prime.

    Of course, it's for promotional purposes for Tuesday's DVD release.

    Hey Guys,
    Didn't know if this would be news or just GD, but because it's nothing groundbreaking I put it in GD.
    Today, one of the sponsors for Fox NFL is Transformers because of the DVD coming out this week.
    Every week there is this CG FOX NFL Robot that basically "warms Up" while they are listing the sponsors during the pre-game & games.
    This week, they replaced the NFL robot with Movie Optimus Prime...
    If You watch FOX's coverage of the Football games today, you'll see Optimus Prime "warming up" to take the field...I had to do a double take to make sure I was seeing it right...

    I just saw him! That's so cool! They should get rid of the regular robot and keep Prime on permanently. Prime needs a job to keep him busy between films! :lol

    I saw a commercial for the DVD release ("Blue vs. Red"), but there's no Prime so far, just the FOXbot.

    I also saw TF ads during last night's Red Sox vs Indians game. I dont think that's necessarily newsworthy though.

    I saw it too, but i've only seen foxbot since...but then again, that commercial break w/ OP was sponsored by Transformers...maybe the next commercial break sponsored by TF's will bring Optimus prime back...

    Grrr...no Fox game on right now. Must be some market-related thing. Then I have to work at 4:30. Might DVR the game just to watch the Prime spots. Never mind. It's Cardinals vs Panthers. If it'd been Patriots/ Cowboys, I'd've considered it. I'm sure it'll be up on YouTube by the time I get home tonight.

    -Tony!
