Life imitates... Trailer Park?

One of the recurring* panel items at SwanCon is "Trailer Park" where panelists, including angriest, present downloaded trailers for upcoming films along with their comments and predictions about the films.

One of the films discussed this year was the live action / CGI Transformers (can't you just hear the trainwreck coming?).

The new movie has changed the designs of the Transformers and angriest speculated that this may be motivated by a desire to preserve the sales of the original designs merchandise (still going strong apparently) if the movie tanks.

Well I can now report seeing evidence supporting the theory. Today I was off work sick and channel surfing during the afternoon. Along the way I came across an ad for some original design merchandise packaged with a DVD that described itself as the "real Transformers".

*Possibly because it is invariably entertaining, funny, and informative. But don't take my word for it, go see it next year. :)
