Transformers' NASCAR robot will have a metal mullet

02.28.2011by:

The Skids and Mudflap disaster of REVENGE OF THE FALLEN is one that has still burned a crater in my mind to this day. Who would have thought that making two robots talk like Kat Williams, have gold teeth and say that they can’t read would be a terrible, terrible idea?

Well if you think Michael Bay has learned his lesson about racial robot stereotyping, you’re wrong. ToplessRobot recently got a look at some of the upcoming toys for DARK OF THE MOON, and yes, that is a robot with a mullet.

We’ve known that NASCAR Transformers would be in the film, but I guess it was too much to hope that they wouldn’t be lumbering metal stereotypes to boot. From what I can tell, “Topspin” has a mullet, some wicked shades and a serious overbite. Thankfully he’s not voiced by Larry the Cable Guy, but at this point, I wouldn’t be surprised.

So if you thought TRANSFORMERS was going to clean up its act for its final installment, you clearly have underestimated Michael Bay and his creative team. But hey, it’s making fun of poor, uneducated white people this time, so it’s OK!

Extra Tidbit: The CEO of Hasbro is hinting that the series will live on post-Bay. Sigh.

its funny cause its a race care & rednecks are probably too stupid to even understand the joke anyway...im betting this is just some joke by a Michael Bay hater cuz thats a horrible picture.

BTW if you believe anything from a web site named topless robot you might be a redneck.

Relying on stereotypes as usual. Fuck you Michael Bay. Do another Bad Boys or The Rock.

I'm not sure how much foul language it would take to get banned from joblo.com, but stories like this tempt me to find out. I'm not sure even George Lucas ignored the fanbase as much as Bay is now doing.

Really. What the fuck? This is the guy that made Bad Boys and The Rock. He hangs out with lingerie models all day long. There is no way someone who should be this fucking cool can possibly continue to fuck things up this badly.

A NASCAR Transformer with a mullet, seriously. Does he have an NRA bumper sticker, and yell GIT 'R' DONE too? Stereotypes aren't characters Micheal. You want a southern Autobot fine, but does he have to have a mullet?

Bad move

Wow. I really thought Michael Bay learned his mistakes from the second transformers and would fix them, and getting rid of the always terrible Megan Fox was the first step towards that. However, this news seems to show that is not the case. I'm still going to see the movie in theaters, probably just like everyone on this site, but I have no anticipation for it.

Bay is a douchebag..He obviously hasnt learned a fucking thing from the shit he pulled in the last film. The Island might truly be his only decent movie.

I'm going to wait and see.

If Mudflap and Skids weren't involved in the 2nd one, I would've enjoyed it much more.

Man, i wish i could find it....

There was a meme that summed up the whole idea of this franchise perfectly but i can't find it.

It was a pick of Bay behind a bent over optimus in "doggy style" and there was a caption that said something like
"I"M IN UR DREAMS! RAPING UR CHILDHOOD!"

spot on man, spot on.

Laziness and a lack of creativity = reliance on stereotypes.

Pretty pathetic if you're brain is that weak minded that it's swayed that easily. But you're right, Dances with Transformers would be much better.

The issue is that they have become a mutated caricature of Michael Bay's directing style.

Considering the autobots get their English voice abilities from the internet (as Optimus said in the first one) it is possible that some of the bots would have personalities based on stereotypes. While the twins last go around were borderline offensive, this really isn't because there is a MASSIVE industry in comedy for making fun of [link] american stereotypes.

Or, in other words: Is any news out of Transformers all that surprising? This guy will probably have like 4 lines at best, while

Borderline?! No, Jazz in the first film was borderline. The twins crossed the border and headed for South America.
