    Obligatory: "This animation's better than the cartoon!"

    Which can apply to both in this case.

    I'm not sure how that commercial is pinpointing the collector community.

    It's not. It's targeting children.

    There's a reason you can buy Generations figure at general retail and not just at comic shops and speciality stores like a lot of pop culture 'collector' merchandise.

    I still love the fact they're marketing Sentinel Prime as one of the good guys. I can imagine someone coming into the comics because of Titans Return and being totally confused.

    Exactly. This confusion is what happened in CW.

    Awesome. I wish I could summon Optimus Prime like that kid in the RID commercial.

    *sigh* So true.

    Neither am I. Really odd thing to say on the front page.

    Would it hurt the announcer to sound more enthusiastic like we got back in the eighties?

    "BEYOND! BEYOND ANYTHING YOU EVER SEEN BEFORE! TRANSFORMERS TITAN MASTERS!"

    Something like that.

    I'd like to see some shots of the toys being fucking smashed through piles of rocks and gravel accompanied by a kid going "TAKETHATDECEPTICREEPS!" super fast, and a shot at the end of the bad guy toys getting knocked the hell off something by a spring-loaded missile of course, really take it back to the toy ads of 80's/90's, haha.

    Surely it'd be:

    "TITAN MASTERS TRANSFORMERS - THEY'VE GOT THE POWER TO SURPRISE!"

    ;) 

    EDIT: Or (having just watched another 80s ad for Headmasters):

    "TITAN MASTERS TRANSFORMERS - MORE, MUCH MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE!"

    "More, Much More Than Meets The Eye" is what I would want a series of spin-offs focusing on the minor characters from IDW's MTMTE comic to be called. Never happened of course.

    "Autobots, we've got to find the Titan Masters! With their help, we can defeat the Decepticons!"

    Or better still, make little comics that advertise the packaged toy with a bit of introdumping in there. Maybe with the Titan Master packs because their packaging is boring as all hell. They also don't even show the base modes of the leader-class figures.

    "The Destrons are attacking! Transform Fortress Maximus!"
    "Destrons, form Liokaiser and destroy Fortress Maximus!"

    Ditto -- the commercial even features a kid as the one to change all the heads. Not sure what part of it really targeted the collector community at all.

    Well, it is!

    I'd love to see what whatever studio did this could do, given a writer, as compared to the abysmal CW thing we are struggling through at the moment.

    And is that Jon narrating the RID commercial? Nice.

    Vaguely surprised there are no Australian voices in these Australian commercials.
