    Its not gay and I happen to love Transformers and think this is pretty awesome. I also believe they licensed any likeness or copyrights from Hasbro if this is true. Id buy the damn thing in Opimus Prime! "AUTOBOTS! Roll OUT!"

    ... I didn't know little kids build computers:roll: I used to like Transformers till they came out with the new movies and killed the name for me, they made it all about the kids.

    So ASUS gets sued by Hasbro for their ASUS Transformer tablet and their spin off partner company ASRock starts making Hasbro Transformer motherboards...

    Ironic.

    When they release the Jenna Jameson version with the Chipset Heatsink that look like big gorgeous Boobs.... That is the one I will buy!

    Til then I think I will stay away from eh Transformer themed motherboards. But nice try ASrock.... too bad you don't sell boards at Toys-R-Us

    Looks like these motherboards transform themselves into lawsuits.

    Read the original post again:

    ASRock hasn't produced anything yet; they're soliciting feedback on possible ideas. None of this stuff will see the light of the assembly line unless ASRock pays for a license from the owner.

    So long as the don't go crazy with poorly coloured pcb, branding and ugly car shaped heatsinks.... then these could be okay. :wtf:

    I wish every board shown in this thread was real, i would happily buy the rainbow dash or nyan cat model :laugh:

    But it makes me wonder if this is in any way related to the asus transformer prime lawsuit, if Hasbro was entering in to a licensing deal with ASRock it would make sense to be trying to protect the name even if they are not protecting the exact copyright(as far as i knew).

    Although saying that could Hasbro have whipped up a deal with ASRock to try and show their claim as legit as it's not about confusing tablets with toys but computer components for tablet bringing the markets it would be claiming confusion within much closer together.

    Or ASRock has no permission at all and just wants to get sued as well?

    ASRock Marketing/PR are trolling

    This, until I see products on shelves it's just a clever marketing ploy to get people talking about ASRock. :shadedshu
