The Pepsiman Transformers connection

from Wikipedia:

Pepsi Convoy

With the release of the Japanese Exclusive Transformers toy Pepsi Convoy, more of Pepsiman's origin was revealed. Apparently, the metallic silver compound Pepsiman is made of was developed by NASA, and was called "sentient metal". Pepsiman was created when the "sentient metal" fused with Pepsi Cola. It is shown that Pepsi Convoy is made from this same living metal when a sample was given to the Autobots. Despite having the same mission in life (bring cool refreshing soda to thirsty sentients everywhere, thanks to his CO2 gun and "bottle station" trailer), an expanded version of the toy's bio revealed by the writer reveals that Pepsi Convoy is not in fact a new form of Pepsiman, but could probably be considered a brother or cousin. Whether or not Pepsi Convoy has the same lack of coherent speech and lack of luck is unknown.

Also, don't forget "the Fuct of Pepsiman": http://meltingpot.fortunecity.com/gu...41/figure5.jpg

Doug Dlin actually pointed this out way back when he translated the bio, and I'm sure I posted the link here and it even got frontpaged.

My sales thread, my feedback as a seller and buyer.

Uh...congratulations? This sure ain't something most people will remember, let alone concern themselves with pointing out.

I'm surprised the Japanese go into so much detail for a character, Pepsiman or not. I mean, maybe it's their version of "over-the-top" humor? I mean, I'm entertained.

Well I'm glad I could turn another person onto the greatness that IS Pepsiman.

Funny thing is...I hate Pepsi...but I love Pepsiman!
Ironic ain't it!
