The Cars of “Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon”

Remember when we first heard the news that Megan Fox wouldn’t appear in “Transformers 3”? There was mass devastation across the robot-controlled world. I, on the other hand, saw opportunity and looked forward to a new star gracing the big screen.

At the time, rumors were floating that the new star might be a hot little Italian number: the Ferrari 458 Italia.

  1. Gosh, how do you keep all those names apart? I’m so old and rickety that Transformers are past my time, but the movies have been great fun (although a bit loud) and the director’s female star abdomen fetish is always interesting to watch.

  2. Mr. Panayoti… I have always had a soft spot for Transformers. Me an Optimus Prime go way back!

  3. Kick ass! The movie will probably suck but it sure is cool to see these cars turn into robots. Convertible Stingray? Sweet!

  4. TG, what the hell are you thinking and where are we going on this blog?? The new marijuana law is only in the proposal stage and not yet law.
