I loved the show and toys as a kid. When I first saw a trailer I thought eh...maybe I'll see it on DVD. I've changed my mind.

Check these out.

A MasterCraft transformer could have been pretty good co-marketing.

Yeah,, I checked that trailer out a couple weeks back and it looks like they might do a good job with it. Let's hope that the trailer isn't the best parts of the whole movie like most movie trailers.

I just hope it doesn't turn out like the Hulk - which I liked a lot (probably because I wanted to like it). EXCEPT for the gumby bouncing Hulk around the dessert and city etc... blew the whole thing.

Lets.....;) 480 primary with a 208/120 secondary would be prefered in a commercial application, unless the facilities existing equipment is rated for 240, then a 480 primary with a 240 delta secondary would be best for the application.



FWIW- The vehicle in my avatar will making an appearance in this movie....:D

Reminds me of that movie "Mr. MOM" with Micheal Keaton when his wifes boss came to pick her up and he is explaining to him about his addition he is putting on the house.

"You doing the work yourself?"

"yep!"

"you wiring it all 220??"

"220, 230, whatever it takes."

:cool:

Seriously, the Camaro in this movie looks AWESOME. Way better than the first version I saw at the LA auto show a couple few years ago. Maybe because it's going fast and all, but it looks really good all broad shouldered & brawny.

I hope you aren't talking about the yellow one.:o

As I have read, the "new" camaro in the movie is really a new GTO with a custom body built just for the movie. And rumor has it they made two of them. If I am not mistaken, it should be the mirror image of what should be built in another year to be the '09 camaro.
And I was mistaken, my avatar is a convertible, the movie car is not. Either way, I'm gonna see it.....;)

I read that, what seems like a year ago or more in a magazine. I was refering to the yellow (I believe to be) '71 camaro (yellow and primer).

Took Trey to see it over the weekend.

Pretty good flick... LOTS of special effects... Stragely enough it had some pretty vulgar references for a movie about a kids toy, but we enjoyed it....
