    on my holiday i went to an orpington shop called J.H Lohrimers (spelling?) and they had Optimus Prime bath salts shaped like his Cab, it was a front view and it was in "movie" style packaging.

    I think that's stretching it a little, making Transformers bath salts.

    OK, bath salts trump everything else on the Merchandise WTF Meter so far. The only people of whom I've ever heard using bath salts are adult females. Color me skeptical on the popularity of this item.

    Yes, friends, now you too can smell like a giant robot...or something.

    Bonkers merchandising FTW; what's next, TF kitty litter? Optimus Prime oven gloves? Bumblebee bogroll??

    Actually, on second thoughts, don't answer that...

    Maybe it's for male TF collectors to try and get their female significant others interested in the franchise...?

    Perhaps Hasbro is trying to get more BotCon attendees to shower before the show.

    they're just hoping that maybe if the soap looked like Transformers fans would be more inclined to use it than regular soap xD
