    I posted this in the "Transformers Optimus Prime Automorph Technology" Thread but I don't think anyone has seen this yet. I don't even recall this particular video being reported here. So here is a video of Ultimate Movie Bumblebee raising his arm to shoot his gun, making blaster sounds, moving his other arm, head, & wings, and playing "Whip It" by Devo. His eyes also light up.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-jnpqawzpA&NR

    It sounded cool but now seeing it in action as it played "whip it" totally made me cringe once I heard the song. When I think of bad 80's music (don't worry, there are a bunch of great timeless 80's songs out there) I think of "whip it" as being the worst of them all. Yep, even worse than Don Johnson's "Heartbeat" and that song sucked big time. Surely they could have used a better 80's song for him to play but, they didn't. I got this "I don't think that's such a good idea" vibe from it. But that's just my opinion.

    *If this turns out to be old news then I'm sorry for the inconveience and Mods feel free to close the Thread.

    I think the question you should be asking is....why isn't it a feature in everything? :p

    That song should be in every TF toy from now on. Honestly, it isn't a Transformer without the Whip it song by Devo.



    Also, w00t 1000th post.

    Why stop with Transformers? It could be a feature of home appliances, cleaning supplies, produce, etc....the possibilities are endless!

    And congrats on the 1,000th post. I missed mine :(

    My theory... some scene in the movie uses the song, and it better be a damn good scene... If it is then it could be a really cool inclusion.

    I thought Devo was a joke band.

    They are....They attempted to sue Wierd Al for "Dare to be Stupid" saying by making a parody of their music, he was "defaming them" and that they were a "serious" band.

    Getting ULTIMATE BUMBLEBEE to do all that and transform is some pretty clever engineering, but his flapping 'wings' are a bit much. If I get one it'll be purely for display & transform, not sing-a-long-a-bumblebee..
    Not having a clue who/what Devo is has me shrugging my shoulders at the choice of sounds too (I'm not really a music person, if it can be called "music"!!)

    If they wanted to do a song, why do that one?? I think it woulda been a nice nod to the 80s if they'd have included The Touch or something. I guess it all depends on rights to the songs and who actually would allow their songs to be used. I think the Devo thing is just dumb. Ruined a good figure.

    The flapping wings made me sad. That looks sooo corny.

    But, hey. Awesome engineering!

    Why does it play that song?????

    I like the movement, but I just don't get it. Maybe it will be something we get after we see the movie.
