    Would you be interested if Hasbro officially licensed a line of Energy Drinks called Energon as well a line of Candy called Energon Crystals/Cubes?


    Could have all types of flavors for the drink and even have sugar free versions. Maybe the cans/bottles they came in could be collectible with cool art designs on each one? Bottle Caps with Faction Symbols on them? Bottles that when placed side by side create a battle scene?


    The candy could come in hard candy, gummy candy and even have sour versions. The candy could be in shapes of things like energon crystals, energon cubes, sparks, the matrix and faction symbols.


    Who else would like this?

    Purple clear hard candy in the shape of cubes would be killer. And speaking as someone who loves energy drinks, energon energy would be something I would be so interested in.
    Then if they would put awesome artwork on the cans of awesome transformers, that would be awesome.
    Awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome.

    I dunno, considering how awful the Energon Cube candy and those gelatin Transformer tasted, and how even today those Betty Crocker Transformers Animated fruit snacks taste... I'd rather see Hasbro focus on toys and stay out of the food industry.

    I might try once out of curiosity and/or novelty, but that's it.

    Maybe not the candy, but the drink idea sounds awesome.

    I think the energy drinks would be awesome too, great for gamers, geeks and fans alike. The candy I just threw in because it could be nice way to get kids into TFs.

    I already collect bottles, not coke or pepsi but ones with nice artwork. I have 2 SoBe energy drink bottles and a blue retro looking Mt Dew bottle I got from WM during the 4th of July. I just think TF artwork on bottles would be a nice touch to any collection.

    What would be especially cool? A Botcon commemorative edition 6 pack of energy drinks featuring the characters of that come in the box. Anyone care for Shattered Glass bottles? :p

    I actually can't believe you said that. :p  Hasbro's never making food anyway - you're basically saying they shouldn't produce comics or cartoons either, neither of which they do. The quality of the food depends entirely on who Hasbro allow to have the licence to produce.

    There's a fatal flaw with that idea... :p

    Don't you know? Everything is Hasbro's fault. Someone makes nasty sweets: Hasbro's fault. Takara lose a mold: Hasbro's fault. Too many toys on the shelves at once: Hasbro's fault. Not enough toys on the shelves: Hasbro's fault.

    Those bastards are ruining my life.

    Exactly. And thus far Hasbro hasn't exactly tried hard to license the brand to people who'd make some good tasting food.

    Or nobody who makes decent-tasting food has tried particularly hard to bag the licence from Hasbro.

    But yeah, that's gotta be Hasbro's fault. :p

    I love the energy drink idea.

    Kinda off subject but if a tranformer drank distilled liquid energon would they get drunk?

    Id like to think so.

    It's been covered in many media (right back to the original comics and cartoon) that overconsumption can actually affect TFs in a similar manner to too much alcohol. Examples incude the cartoon episode "Fight or Flee", when Sandstorm excuses Cyclonus' and Scourge's behaviour as a result of their having had "a little too much energon".
    Rattrap's also referred to a bar that sells a particularly intoxicating blend, and Maccadam's is supposed to serve a decent brew, too.

    More on energon, including mention of its intoxicating properties (check the 'Trivia' bit at the bottom).
