    I have to give credit to Me Grimlock King of TF Live for finding this wonderifous gem.

    I mean, Christ, they didn't even *try* to hide it. They even jacked the font!

    That is the single most shameless thing I've ever seen.

    And as an avowed MST3K'er, I will own it.

    That company's done that many times. I remember a piece on tv about them making b-movies very similar to big hollywood movies.
    I believe they released snakes on a train right before snakes on a plane came out.. lol!

    I like how in the poster, a couple of guys on the left are completely engulfed in flames yet still have their guns raised and are shooting the robot.

    "TRANSMORPHERS" sounds like it may actually be a giggle, but they've still got a bloody cheek.

    5 bucks says it turns out to be better than the real deal, if only because its hilariously bad instead of just bad.

    In all seriousness, so will I. Some of those 'straight-to-video' movies can actually be pretty watchable (but you do have to trawl through the large percentage of guff to find those odd good ones!)

    No point betting on something over which you've already made up your mind.

    What a new low for mankind. They should at the very least put their talent to something more original.
    Very sad.

    I'll gladly buy it. I've seen a few of Asylum's movies and they definately fall into the "so bad it's good" category. They're not Troma quality, but they are definately giggle worthy. The box art alone is worth buying the DVD for.

    Well, we can see how detached from the original concept Bayformers is when even the plagiarism has no resemblance to the core source.

    On a second thought, Transmorphers look much more like Gobots than Bayformers look like TFs.
    :p
