    Is there a transformer that's a car that turns into a motorcycle, with no robot mode? Shouldn't they be testing a car into a robot?

    Car into motorcycle, sounds more like the Dark Knight edition of Myth Busters.

    Or M.A.S.K. :D

    Ya know, all sarcasm aside, what would have been cool, despite it not actually being a "myth", is if they tried to figure how/if an actual working car could ever be engineered in a way so that it could turn into convincing robot sans toy/movie magic. Like, figuring what to do with the engine, seats, wiring, etc. when things need to shift and move and flip, so on & so forth. THAT would be all sorts of hella cool imo.

    Dang, I thought it would be

    "Can truck trailers disappear?"

    or

    "Can a handgun become a giant robot?"

    or

    "Can robots reproduce sexually?"

    Son, I am disappoint.

    There's only so many that are ok for broadcast

    There are still plentyof myths that are super gross, ethically unthinkable, of flat out impossible to verify empirically

    Not that the last thing has stopped them in the past lol

    Cool! If they blow up a TF, let it be a Bayformer. Or a TFA character.

    Oh, who am I kidding? I don't care which TF they blow up. Show me fire and molten metal!

    Adam: So Jamie.

    Jamie: Yeah Adam?

    Adam: You know how in Michael Bay's Transformers, the cars would blow up and a robot would appear?

    Jamie: Yeah?

    Adam: Well that's what we're doing. We've wrapped this Ford Mustang with 7 lbs of Det Cord and filled the seats with 18 lbs of C4.

    Jamie: So we're gonna blow it up and see if a Transformer appears?

    Adam: That's right.

    Jamie: Sure.

    3 Ford Mustangs later...

    Jamie: More Det Cord?

    Adam: More Det Cord.

    Jamie: And I think we might have to put in some enriched uranium in there too.

    Adam: To emulate the Energon?

    Jamie: Precisely.

    Sounds more like they are taking on MASK.
    If they were really taking on Transformers, they'd be converting a vehicle into a robot instead of into another vehicle.

    THIS.

    How does this remotely relate to Transformers, based on their synopsis? Something that turns into something else? That's a Transformer, then? So a caterpillar is a Transformer, too?

    Either they're avoiding the liability of having a car turn into a robot, or this is a major fail.

    OR TFW2005 is sensationalizing this as news. :rolleyes2  Not sure what's up here.

    This show stopped busting "myths" just a few episodes in. The fact it has lasted so long is kind of the same reason the movies have done OK.

    Glad to see they know as much about TransFormers as most of their topics. Which is nothing.

    With all due respect to Grant and Tori because they are fantastic at the craft of wacky TV.. Getting rid of the only female on that show was one of the stupidest moves I have seen on TV in years..

    I haven't even seen one episode this season and after Discovery forced those 3 off I don't think I even want to.

    wouldn't it make more sense to take apart a car and reassemble it into a robot shape to prove whether or not micheal bay's designs are realistic or not

    I would watch this.
    Because, explosions.

    Seriously, while they have been at some of the 'myths' tackled, the shaw has always been interesting.

    agreed, and this episode also reminds me of another (real) show of vehicles being turned into other things "Monster Garage"
