Not even Optimus Prime can defeat the long arm of the law – NYC issues parking ticket

Optimus Prime gets a Parking Ticket in New York City

"...and fuck New York too!"

Boing Boing has posted a rather humorous photo of Optimus Prime parked outside of Toy Fair 2011 with a NYC parking ticket attached to him!!!!

These are the kinds of fun-haters that you have to deal with in NYC.  I also wonder who has to pay this.

Sneek peak at Hasbro Toyfair 2011 – Dark of the Moon toys

Check out the video above to see a sneek peak of Hasbro’s toy displays during this year’s Toy Fair press event. It looks like Transformers 3 is going to get a lot of love. We get a look at some new Lego-like Transformers toys similar to Diablock in Japan or the late Built to Rule toyline. Hasbro just keeps trying that shit! Now they are calling it “cre-o.”

We get a in-person look at Ultimate Optimus Prime as well. With the backpack parts turned down the figure looks a bit better. Also the BFG he is holding, although ridiculous in size and execution, does impress.

Sadly, I will not be in attendance this year to view the madness but I’m sure you can follow any of the other big toy news sites and get plenty of dirt on what’s coming in 2011. Smell ya later!
