    The bell ringing reminds me of Hector Salamanca from Breaking Bad more than anything else for some reasons.

    Fun videos.

    The G1 toys used in the commercial vids still looks good.

    Okay, so these are absolutely hilarious

    I have a stuffed T. rex named Grimlock - he used to be my dad's- and we were watching it with him, and my dad did his Grimlock impression and said "Me no remember signing contract for this," which made me crack up more

    Favorite parts were Grimlock ringing the bell and the 1986 reference with the wipers

    I don't know what I expected, but this is terrible. Low budget, poor script... And really made me wonder why Hasbro couldn't offer an exclusive toy promo here.

    Digging out the oldest toys you can find to make these ads feels sad to me. Especially when the newest toy Grimlock is pretty impressive, and Studio Blurr is a lot more cartoon accurate.

    Insult to injury: I'm supposed to believe that little girl plays with TFs? :lol  My kids have a word for all of this: cringe. :D

    They were going for nostalgia, I believe

    Plus, why use the new toys to celebrate the 40th anniversary when you can use the 38- and 39-year-old originals lol

    Micro machines guy has really slowed down.   I guess time is the one enemy Blurr can\'t outrun.   ;(
