    Hi Fellow Boardies,

    So I was just doing some research on badminton racquets and guess what I saw? A collaboration between Hasbro and Victor Badminton for Transformers themed Victor badminton Racquets.
    Looks to be an Asia only exclusive limited to a few locations of purchase.
    Optimus version of a racket and a bag
    Bumblebee version of a racket and a bag
    so 4 items in total.

    Check it out at this link VICTOR?TRANSFORMERS LTD

    How's that out of left field? Wonder if those racquets are any good.

    You can see photos directly [​IMG]



    Enjoy!

    Very interesting

    Now fhat I think about it, how about a line of toys with sports theme alt modes? (Ex. Raquet, baseball, football, catcher's mitt, etc).

    If only they could've Photoshopped rackets into the hands of Optimus and Bumblebee in that advert. That Bumblebee pose looks perfect to be holding both a racket and a bag. Seems a missed opportunity.

    I see where you're going, but if anything I think its time they started using actual renderings in advertisements and not concept art.

    Sometimes, they are not allowed to "tamper" with the promo materials given by Hasbro. So, they can't Photoshop Badminton Rackets to Bee and Prime.

    Wow! TF4 is sure going all out on a lot products, I don't think TF3 had this much advertising going on.

    There are no Decepticon rackets, this set is therefore bullshit

    And now my life is complete. :cool: 

    Just makes the advert seem more appropriate than having robits on it 'just because'. It'd be like hiring a big sports star to advertise your new energy drink and then not showing him taking a swig of it. The disconnect between Transformers and badminton is too great. It just seems like such an odd combination anyway. I can only assume the owner of the sporting company is a TF fan to think of using them to help sell his wares.

    Well, yeah, I guess so. But you have to admit my world would be a lot more fun to live in. :)
