Transformers Toys For Tots: Ratchet's A Whore Of A Hummer

One of the biggest reasons for the General to be involved in this upcoming summer's blockbuster movie about the cars that disguise themselves as robots (yes, we know it's "robots in disguise" but maybe we're projecting our allegiances here) is the merchandising. The folks in the RenCen's phallic towers of power are going to be able to get millions of kids across this great nation — nay, across this heckuva world — to play with products that share some remarkable visual similarities to products and brand names they currently sell. Although they're not looking for the children of the world to rise up and buy a GMC TopKick en masse, but they are hoping they'll leave the theaters and the toy stores with a warm and fuzzy feeling deep down in their sub-cockle area, and then maybe twenty years from now they'll all buy GMC's en masse. For instance, here we've got the Autobot automotive medic, Ratchet — all rip-roarin' and ready to suture — in his vehicular form that despite some heavy modifications, still bears that Schwarzenegger-loved brand name plastered on the front end. Because to us, nothing says safe, secure and well-oiled to us like an H1 H2.
