    I'm only having a bit of fun here, but I think I've found a gap in the market. For years there have been dolls that, like real babies, can cry and urinate and such and they are marketed for girls. They are like training for children of their own. To train boys, I belive there should be a doll in the form of movie Bumblebee. He cries and urinates! He is ripe to become a doll with these capabilities!

    Sorry. Silly, I know. But the idea has been tickling me all day.

    Well he does piss all over a guy in the movie, so it makes a twisted kinda sense.

    EDIT: Beaten to it ^

    A lot of women I know loved Bumblebee in the movie, and some of my little female cousins too, so I wonder if it'd become a doll for boys and girls in spite of the target audience. Like the Mighty Muggs (which generate squeals of amusement from every female I know who's seen them).

    If you're gonna do that, then you MUST make a Barbie doll with ROTF Starscream tattoos on it to. Or a Cabbage Patch Kids toy, with Movie Megatron's head. Either will work.

    I'd want to see Stripper Mikaela Barbie from that mock Michael Bay script.

    Some pleasing additional ideas to add to the delicious randomness!

    You haven't heard of slumblebee and softimess prime? I got them for my younger sister and she adores them.

    TRANSFORMERS SLUMBLEBEE Plush Figure - Product Detail

    They flip inside out to transform. Detailed, soft, and smooth instead of furry like most plushes. Gives them a distinct aesthetic.

    Don't forget to use promo code TF2009 at checkout for 10% off transformers stuff. HTS is the best place to still get these since you get them new and at retail cost.

    also check out robot heroes. I collect them instead of mugs. Similar appeal. Often wondered if there was some 80s crazy parent who bought their kid those cool fisher price pirate ship, medieval castle, and dinosaur cave playsets but instead of buying the normal chunky dudes gave their 3-4 year old combat heroes and robot heroes for the sets.

    endless action.

    TF Cosplay Barbie? It'd be like those drawings of girls with Transformers parts on them. Sort of Centurions armouring toys for girls. :)
