Transformer of the Day for November 16, 2009

JOLT

-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Movie (2007, 2009, 2011)

-Function: Strategist
-Motto:
“War is No Place for Seriousness
-Notable Toy: Deluxe Two-Pack (Hasbro, 199

Notes: I know what I said about the movie and the toy line. So why on earth am I spotlighting Revenge of the Fallen toys in my TF of the Day, particularly given that I’ve already done the Fallen (before I knew what a rotten tomato the movie was going to be), to say nothing of Sideswipe just last week? Maybe I just feel bad for the fellow, and for GM. I mean here he is, GM’s new Volt, off to save the planet and the corporate pocket book, and he gets like two seconds of screen time using a name that was already loosely affiliated with the movie as a Decepticon. Seriously, this is marketing? When the clearest picture of the guy you can get is the one above? Jeez!
