Found this at TRU this weekend
Didn't get the price but snapped the pic.
Damn.. its not a real shave kit. Just for play.
Marketing of this movie is officially out of control...
Indeed, I got all excited.
Out of control is right! What's next? Transformers Condoms? "Transform you sex life and Maximize your potential!"
Keep that thing away from my Wreck-Gar, Scourge and Alpha Trion.
I'd rather teach my kid to shave than a heavily-milked movie product. (Although a book technically taught me how to shave properly).
Should we be expecting Transformers toilet paper next?
I'm guessing Autobot and Decepticon rolls...with respective characters on each.
Take that, Megatron! *wipes*
You said it, this is nuts...
Next it will be ads like:
"This is Optimus Prime and to keep my unsightly facial hair under control I use Transformers brand shaving cream!"
All this movie merchandise reminds me of this scene:
"What is it you do here?"
"Merchandising, where the real money from the movie is made!"
As to not seem sexist, maybe will will see Transformers/Arcee labeled play depilatory(sp?) cream and tampons next.
Play shaving sets have been around for years. Anyways, until we have condoms and breakfast sausages like in Japan (Gundam and Hello Kitty, respectively although probably not exclusively), we'll only be small-time market whores.
And considering that I have seen many people say they are buying like 10 versions of the movie tomorrow just to get crappy gift cards, hats, and lithographs, this kind of merchandising shouldn't be surprising.
oh man, this is an accident waiting to happen...
They have? Who made em?
I dunno but when I was really young me and my brother had them. They came with a super hard bright orange pvc-ish shaver, a lather brush with a handle, and some super super foamy soap.
A quick search brings up Spiderman, the Lion King and many others. This isn't that earth shattering
Cool. I remember haveing something similar when I was a kid, except it was a Ninja Turtles set . Now that I think about it, I think the little play razor is still in our bathroom somewhere, lol.
I think the idea of "play condoms for kids" is far more disturbing, if you follow the trend of the fake razor.
Maybe we'll get a serious version of the Robot Chicken Optimus prostate exam PSA instead.
Play shavers are no wierder than baby dolls that piss or the generations of "learn to iron, cook, and sew" (all sharp and or dangerous things in real life) toys for girls.
Though, I think I may have to pick this up. XD
...well, I'm flabbergasted.
