    Zobovor reports that he has found a Transformers Movie Pinata at Wal Mart. From his description they don't sound too impressive, but they are an interesting oddity none the less.

    Ahhh - now they make them....:mad 
    Here are the ones I had made in Tijuana for my kids party. I wasnt impressed but for some reason no one else wanted to make a transformer pinata, they said it was too hard. I had the pictures printed and had the pinata people just do the outline. I wanted a slimmer outline but whatever... I'm not fond of the colors either and of couse Ironhide isnt a decepticon but...the kids liked them

    Yes, it's active and nice. Most of the flame-warmongers have moved all their sparks to other boards, so it's pretty calm there now.

    instead of a regular bat/stick, you should use a energon colored one.

    I thought this thread might clear it up for me, but it doesn't. What's a pinata?

    Pinata is a Central American (possibly Spain too) party item. It currently is an item that people fill it up with candy or some other items and hang it up (on a tree).

    A person is then blindfolded and tries to wack the pinata with a bat. After a good hit, it will break open and kids will grab the prizes.

    That's how it is used today but it have more a traditional background.

    To add to this, American children have picked up on this tradition. It's violent, and makes people fatter. Hispanic traditions don't get more American than that! It's typically made of paper mache- strips of paper soaked in a coating, then attached to a frame. The paper hardens, so the shell is hard enough to hold candy, and then be broken. Kids love it, and adults sometimes get hit in the nuts with a stick, making for great video.

    We just had a company bbq and had some pinatas that the adults had to break open, and several people got hit with the bat, and then one guy put the broken pinata on his head and danced around to the beat of that justin timberlake sexy back song. and yeah, I have video of it. nobody hit in the nuts, but man that's a great image!
