So today I was lucky enough to find a copy of the 1986 Gobots Annual for FREE! Brilliant I thought. So there I am flicking through the book and I stumble upon a 2 page feature, 'The man who built the Beetle'. Today we have our first officially licenced VW toy in the form of MP Bumblebee, but for years VW licensing rights were withheld. According to TFwiki, Porsche's and VW's reluctance to associate with Transformers only came to light when Takara actually tried to licence from them during the Binaltech days. Transformers: Alternators - Transformers Wiki So far so normal eh? Well, take the time to read this. If I'm reading this right, basically the four Renegades Psycho, Baron Von Joy, Herr-Fiend and Crasher were basically chosen to be bad guys because of their link to Ferdinand Porsche and his link to Nazi's and Hitler. HOLY FUCK.
