VW Passat-a-Bot Transformer Attacks Beijing Mall

The lack of Volkswagen robot action in Transformers 2 didn't stop a Beijing mall from trying to latch on to the Transformer fever sweeping China, building a home-made VW Passat-a-bot to publicize their recently-opened movie theater. Gallery below.

The Chinese are as fascinated with Transformers as some of us are. So fascinated, this Chinese mall built their very own VW Passat-bot. Check it out. It actually doesn't look half-bad. Certainly more than some of Michael Bay's creations. [via China Car Times]

I don't get it.

PAUL

What exactly don't you get?

JOSH

It turns from a Passat into a robot, right?

PAUL

Precisely.

JOSH

Well, what's fun about that?

PAUL

Well, if you had read your industry breakdown, you would see that our

success in the action figure area has climbed from 27 percent to 45 percent in the last two years. There, that might help.

JOSH

Oh.

PAUL

Yes?

JOSH

I still don't get it.

PAUL

What?!

MR. M

What don't you get Josh?

JOSH

Well, there's a million robots that turn into something. And this is a Passat that turns into a robot. So what's so fun about playing with a Passat? That's not any fun!
