    This is just a theory. It'd be great if anyone could investigate this for me.
    Anyways, here's an observation I made from a picture of the movie set:
    notice what's in the lower right corner?

    Could product placement in the movie lead to Burger King toys?
    After all, they did have Cybertron.
    Anyone have any other info to back my theory up?

    I think there was word sometime ago about BK doing promotion for Transformers. Im not sure if it was just a rumor or if it was confirmed. But seeing that is probally not just a coincidence.

    I do believe that a Burger King is mentioned specifically in the script, so they've probably got a product placement / deal thing going.

    Wouldn't surprise me. Some kind of happy meal equivalent toy thing maybe, or soda cups with movie prints on them.

    No, I work for Burger King and their is no mention of Transformers listed in our computers. I get all the up comming info of what toy line we're getting eight months in advance. I haven't recieved info for July '07 yet. It'll probablt be next week before I do. I'll pass along any info as i see it.
