    What's going on with this push to "morph"? These are transformers not mighty morphin powered strangers! Nor is this animorks either. You guys sit right at the cusp of a very large push for all things transformers. And you go and do this? Man, You're so going to kill your stock rating & value. I'll even turn in my positions if you keep up this push to morph instead of transform. Hey I'd be fine if you even tried "Henshin".

    I wonder how many others here are upset over your Mighty Morkin Push too?

    I hope many people here add to this and vent their disgust.

    They are still transformers, they are just using the gimmick of automorph.

    What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Yeah. The next line will have a different gimmick. And so on and so on.

    Yay!! I have wanted to bust that out so manytimes on these boards before. I couldn't remember the whole thing though. You rock!

    And to the original poster, nobody is saying you have to buy any of the toys. I think the movie line is cool and have spent more money in a short amount of time than I ever have before.

    Do something to your brain so you see the second syllable backwards.

    It's now the Autophorm gimmick.

    I have solved your problem! :D

    What the hell does "morph" mean anyway?

    Damn you Hasbro and your use of synonyms! How dare you use this vocabularic trickery upon us! Bad form, I say, bad form! Harrumph!

    I'm glad everyone liked my post so much. And as for the voice of reason I thank you for your comments too. They're greatly appreciated.

    This would've been a cool webisode of Punk'd. Thanks for playing.

    Good idea.

    It's people like him and his ignorance that make the forums no longer fun.

    I love that he's trying to get people to vent rage over the same thing and everyone's just venting it at him for such an outlandish outburst :lol  I mean, come on... They've used the word morph once in 23 years and suddenly the whole thing is ruined? It's just a gimmick name, and Automorph is a lot easier to put on a package than Autotransform. Quite frankly considering how much I'm seeing the word Transformers lately I'm kinda glad to see the word morph, it would get redundant to see Transformers on top of a box and right below see "transform" again.

    i actually kinda agree with the general point here-i personally say that transforming is enough of a gimmick,but my real issue with automorphing is that hasbro seems to feel the need to fit into nearly toy,whether it helps or not.they did the same thing with powerlinx and cyberkeys.

    maybe i am bitter about that defective bumblebee,tho'.

    This thread isn't worth keeping open.

    And as far as "morphing" is concerned ... it's marketing. I suggest reading something about it sometime.
