Jetta Transformer Ripping up Beijing

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

The Chinese fascination, perhaps better called an obsession, with all things Transformers has not yet reached its peak. The release of the second Transformers movie in China has only served to make the Transformers stronger than before in the PRC, which has resulted in various Autobots doing lucrative product sponsorship on various products from male skin care products to kids cereal. Some companies have run with the Transformers success to push their own business, Citroen for example used a dancing robot to push its new Citroen C4, and then there’s the Beijing mall that used their own home made VW Jetta bot to garner publicity for their own recently opened movie theatre:

    I think that the Volkswagen Jetta is not the ideal car to turn into a Transformer. I would have gone with a least a Buick Excelle or a MG3 SW!

    Buick Excelle? Buick Excelle?


    The Excelle is for families, and middle aged men. The Jetta is a cheap, overbuilt, tough car. Its the ultimate autobot! It could take on Devastator all by itself!

    China is still backward with backward mindset, that doesn’t have any kind of style.

    Almost every big cities in China look like Christmas at night with all the neon light. Don’t believe just go to Chongqing and some part of shanghai.

    What does it matter what it is? Buicks are crap. I can’t believe people buy them here. If you want an ugly under powered car get a buick.

    That’s funny. I remember that C4 ad from a couple of years ago when they brought out the new C4. Maybe the could do a rerun for the C-Quatre sedan.

    Shut your crap, it’s just the same with the U.S., there’s no need to put down China just because it’s got neon lights in the cities. It’s got way more culture than the States.
