    I'm preparing to travel for work this week, and haven't flown in a while. So I was looking up the latest rules with the NTSB and I found that the list of allowed items specifically lists Transformers toys. Check it out:

    TSA: What To Know Before You Go

    I laughed out loud at that one, didin't expect that would call out Transformers, figures they would just say 'toys'.

    Its because some of them turn into weapons and a screener not familiar with them might mistake them for an actual weapon.

    Just remember, if you bring along your MP Megatron and security halts you, take it out of your jacket as quickly as you can and point it at people! ;)

    And to further ease any tension, do as G1 Jazz would do and tell everyone to "get down." Everyone loves Jazz's use of 80's urban slang.

    And to calm any remaining fears, be sure to follow it up with something along the lines of "I don't want to hurt anyone."

    Also, you may want to see if people are feeling generous, and ask for them to give you their money.

    No, they single out Transformers because other toys are inferior, especially when it comes to keeping people's kids quiet and occupied and not ruining the flight for everybody. :D
