Who would've ever guessed that a cartoon made into a full-length movie could have ever reached this magnitude of success? According to Fox, 200 'Transformers 3' job openings have come from the making of this movie, and $20 million will be pumped into the local economy. I guess robots aren't such a bad thing after all.

With the blockbuster success of its prequels, it's only expected that 'Transformers 3' will be another hit. This cartoon-turned-movie hasn't only created jobs; it's also inspired different innovations such as autobot laundry lines and transforming iPod decks.
