Gender-Specific Toy Remixes

'Inspectornills' Fuses My Little Pony and Transformers Together

— August 27, 2011 — Life-Stages
These 'Inspectornills' illustrations remind me of a McDonald's Happy Meal since they offer toys that both males and females would appreciate. But that's not all these images are as Inspectornills has fused the two beloved franchises of Transformers and My Little Pony into the unique hybrids that you're currently staring at.

Inspectornills' illustration style is evocative of Saturday morning cartoon shows and it's actually quite a unique concept to combine a female-centric and male-centric cartoon together. It's also quite hilarious to imagine the cute and cuddly horses of My Little Pony being facades for destructive tech beasts..

Implications - Consumers enjoy pop culture mash-ups because they reinvigorate consumer interest in the franchises involved through new content. Corporations may generate similar consumer interest by collaborating with other high profile companies within and outside their industry.
