I discovered another sign of the coming movie apocalypse that is the Transformers after receiving my latest Sharper Image catalog last weekend.

Sharing space on the inside back cover with the "official" Yoda Lightsaber (with Star Wars sound effects) and a "listening, talking" R2-D2 is a 10-inch-tall Beatmix Bumblebee functioning as an animated speaker for your friendly, neighborhood iPod or MP3 player.

And, according to Hasbro.com, Mr. Bumblebee dances too...
