You know. the awesome Stan Bush song from Transformers: The Movie. Stan himself emailed Seibertron to give a list of new things that have or will be receiving “the Touch” in the near future. These include:
? Guitar Hero ? Two Transformers toys (what?) ? Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen
The last is just hopeful, as Bush will be submitting a new version of the song for possible inclusion in the movie (and I don’t have to say it, but if Michael Bay accepted it, I’d have a modicum of respect for the guy for the first time ever). I don’t know how two Hasbro toys will feature a song, but I’m highly interested in finding out how. As for Guitar Hero… crap. Rock Band, Stan. That was the way to go. Tell you what — give Rock Band “Dare,” and we’ll call it even.

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
