    What does that mean? Is Optimus a drug addict or something?

    I think the joke is that the Transformers have totally sold out like everyone else in Hollywood.

    This is about how OP is now all Wolverine-like and the Transformers all hate each other.

    Yeah, this really doesn't make sense.

    You could put Godzilla in this cartoon, surrounded by McDonalds bags, and get the same idea across.

    This doesn't really make a relevant point with Optimus...

    it doesn't even appear to be a "sell out" joke. it appears to be a "drug addict" joke. And those are always hilarious.
