    Some sort of Caterpillar X Transformers V promotion. Not entirely sure what it is, but it seems you can get a cap with Caterpillar on the front and Transformers on the back, if you hire a CAT...so if that's your thing...

    You can also get some useless wallpapers of Prime ignoring "Trench" the CAT!

    It's him! The man of many names! Excavator Guy! Scrapperbot! He finally gets a poster where he's in the spotlight!

    Lame!
    1. Was hoping it was his 'bot mode, not excavator.
    2. Horrible re-use of Nemesis Prime.

    Caterpillar INC. had a vote within the company to name the excavator Autobot, and apparently Trench won. There was a news feed about it in my corporate access page.

    Would that count as news? And do I need to link a source for that?

    Caterpillar INC has spoken, the savior's name is Trench.

    You know that I'm an advocate for shitty, esoteric characters.

    Let's try this instead...


    EDIT:It worked, and definitely made sure nothing of corporate worth was on there...

    Ah, so Scrapper was a giant walking product placement. That explains his presence.

    Would it be possible to grab just a screenshot of the bot himself?

    I like the way the CAT logo just happens to sit perfectly on the front of the robot mode.

    What are the movies but product placement? There was also a huge blurb on the corporate site when they had an excavator prominent in Skyfall.

    I wish we got to see more of this guy. I liked the design and thought he was cool as a background guy. But we only get about three seconds of him in robot mode and about five in alt-mode.

    I'm not a big "truck cap" person, but I want that hat.
