Megatron Shills for The Man

This is a commercial for Time Warner Cable, for which I apologize, but if they’re spending some of their cash to employ Frank Welker as Megatron, they have my attention.

The fate of the golden disk

With news that Voyager 1 is on the verge of leaving our solar system, I give you the fate of the “Sounds of Earth” disc courtesy of Transformers:Beast Wars.

As factories overseas are churning out the new toys to coincide with the release of Transformers 3 (with the goofy subtitle: “Dark of the Moon”), those factory workers with the baggiest pants are smuggling out samples of the toys and revealing them on the internet! The big spoiler is […]
