    Why's Unicron so sloppy? What happened to the rest of his body? He's just a puny fleshling with a helmet on! Boo.

    Rumble drummer (Drumble?) is boss.

    [add] Hot Rod and Arcee look really good together. It pleases me no end to notice the distinct lack of Springer. Insufferable bird-dogbot.

    I checked out their other songs. Not my style, but I'm glad they'll be there. Good job on them for being so creative. I hope they kill it at the show!

    Props to their creativity but they butchered the song and the female (Arcee) obviously can't sing worth a crap. Worst cover ever but everyone is just looking at the fact that they dress as TFs and they are instantly "awesome!"

    I got pictures with Arcee and Hot Rod a couple years ago at FanExpo in Toronto. I'm guessing they're fairly local, which would be pretty rad. Sure, they're not the greatest cover band in the world, but at least they know their niche, and they do it with love.

    Many props to Rumble for being able to drum in that costume.

    It's insanely cool that this band exists. They should totally get these guys at Botcon. Would be massively fun.

    It would be fun if they got a different singer or just performed instrumental.

    The only song I think they do well is "Nothing's Gonna Stand In Our Way"

    The rest of the songs they should work a bit harder on.

    Obviously "The Touch" is inspired by the craptacular Boogie Nights version.

    Honestly she's(Arcee) got a kick-ass metal voice, I'd like to see them tackle "Hunger"

    Hotrod and Spike suck at singing certain songs, but again...They are great when singing "Nothing's Gonna Stand In Our Way"

    How the hell did I not know about this sooner? This is like when I "discovered" the GI Joe Killaz YEARS too late.
