Kyusha in Disguise!

Just close your eyes and imagine pounding the pavement in your Kyusha Kai approved ride on a gorgeous day with Megan Fox sitting shotgun.  All of a sudden…  Traffic…  For as far as the eye can see.  *Transforming sounds*  Before you know it, you’re sitting on the shoulder of a giant robot, who’s smashing his way through the rows of cars!!!

“Robots in disguise” may conjure images of the new Camaro or a giant blue and red Peterbilt semi truck.  I personally love the Transformers live action movies.  On the flipside, a lot of people feel it’s a three hour commercial for the Big Three (Chrysler, Ford and GM) as well as the Air Force.  Bad ass cars (although I still can’t believe they destroyed the Audi R8 in the first 10 minutes of Revenge of the Fallen), awesome explosions and of course, Ms. Fox.

For others, the term “Robots in disguise” may take them down memory lane.  Waking up early on Saturday mornings to catch the cartoon, flipping through a comic book or playing with transforming toys.  What most people don’t know, is that the creator of the Japanese version of Transformers had a serious fetish for some sweet 80’s JDM metal.

Hah, I think it’s so amazing that they got away with naming someone “Alpha Q”. Sucks that now days we have the FCC ruining all the fun.

OMG!!! When I was around seven years old, I bought the Nissan Fairlady/Datsun 280ZX! Crazy to see that toy again on this site

I love Prowl. I barely remember when he was a 280ZX, but I definitely remember playing with G2 action figures and watching the show in elementary. Prowl was a Lamborghini Diablo cop in G2. Oh, and BTW the Big 3 is comprised of GM, Ford, and Chrysler. Chevy is owned by GM lol

Oh DURP! I keep forgetting about Chrysler. I always get everything but Ford mixed up anyway (my old man is into Mustangs).
