    I wish Hasbro would start having a presence at either C2E2 or Chicago Comic Convention, we're feeling so left out here in middle America!

    EXACTLY the first thing that pops in my head when I see these.

    Do we even know that this is it? Will there be any more reveals before the show?

    Regardless, I'm a little disappointed that the TF showing isn't much better, but I'm all over this Mini Muggs.

    I think the cups are pretty cool looking, love the artwork and it is great they are having some fun with the characters instead of just using generic artwork like they have in the past.

    Yea, I am glad that wasnt big when I was in college (though we did do boat races and a variation of beerpong that we called caps). I guess it has led to significant increases in mouth spread herpes on college campuses. Ouch.

    Please don't announce a Mighty Mugg unless it makes it to the website, I have finally decided that I am satisfied with the Former Muggs that we got and don't want to chase more down.

    Have anybody played Cuponk? Most of those trick shots on the cards are hard as hell.

    Nope, just figured it was a nice way to say beer pong. Guess I will have to research it a little bit.

    Edit: Well, doesn't look like my thing, after looking at their promo page, I am having both flashbacks of Family-guy Ball In A Cup jokes, and even worse videos about a single cup game.

    As I said on a previous post, beer pong haven't been around that long. Throwing ping pong balls have. It's even a popular carnival game which was around for decades. It's the biggest culprit of the death of fishes. :p 

    Check out the commercial for some of the tricks that are done.

    I bought this Cuponk set today at the NYCC. It is one of the coolest, if not the coolest pieces of Transformers memorabilia that I own.

    The artwork on the box itself is amazing. The Cups are designed by Robby Musso. The artwork is just fantastic. On the Autobot side there is Prime wearing a Headband, and a Cuponk Medal around his neck (with handles of the Matrix. There is Roller to his right with a Cuponk cup replacing the "red light". Jazz is playing Cuponk with Bumblebee. Bumblebee has a towel draped on his shoulder with an autobot logo. Behind Optimus is Grimock in Dino mold wearing an Autobot hat backwards on his head. Hot Shot, who is wearing Football pads, war paint below his eyes, and a Karate belt, is bouncing a Cuponk ball off of Grimlock's tain into the bot from the Ark who reformatted the bots and cons in More than Meets the eye (sorry, I don't know the name for this bot).

    In other words, totally freaking awesome.

    The Cuponk cup is electronic. Insert 3 AAA, and you get the following sound effects :

    Triumphant music for a few seconds, and then the Transformation Sound.

    A crowd Cheering, and the Prime saying "Optimus Prime"

    Lasers shooting, and the crowd gasping in shock.

    Cheerleaders chanting "Autobot, Autobots. Yeaaaaaah" Crowd cheering (yep, this thing is awweeeesome).

    The G1 Transformers Theme jingle. Da Da Duh, Da Duuuuuuh. (hey its late)

    The Decepticon Cuponk cup is equally boss.

    Megatron is also wearing a headband. He has a Wrestling style Champion belt around his waist that shays he is the Decepticon Champion. With "'84" on the left side of the belt. He is clutching Cuponk ball.

    To his Right A Cuponk Cup is on a stack of Energon cubes. Starscream is firing two Cuponk balls out of his null rays at Megatron. With a scowl on his face. The blue Tape Deck "thing" (sorry I don't know its name) is sneakily putting a ball into the cup that is on top of the Energon Cubes.

    Shockwave is in the back... pumping iron with a hand weight. His laser arm is pointing at Starscream. A Graffiti Cybertron is to the left of Shockwave. On the Other Side, Devastator is attempting a trick shot off of Soundwave's open tape cassette door that that has a Cuponk Cup on it. Soundwave is wearing a Tennis Visor, with a Metallic brim and a Decepitcon logo on it.

    The Sound Effects for the Megatron cup are :

    Transformation Sound. Multiple blaster and Laser sounds. And Megatron saying "Megatron" (sorry can't place the voice actor)

    Lasers, and laughter. (could be Devastator)

    Evil Music, and then the Transformation Sound.

    Megatron saying "Decepticons", and then a crowd "jeering"

    Cheerleaders cheering "Decepticions, Decepticons, Deceptions..." ... crowd cheering.

    G1 music. Then Transformation Sound.



    This collector piece is EPIC !!

    Dude, Beer Pong has been around since the 50s. My uncle's Surf-rock band used to play it at afterparties when they played at college campuses. Back then you used paddles, but sometime in the '80s it evolved into the "thrown ball" form kids play today.
