Why Transformers will have a hard time in Singapore

The latest movie in the Transformers franchise ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ will be out on 26 June 2014 in Singapore.

Part of the filming was done in China so we thought, “Hey, wouldn’t it be great if Transformers come to save the world in Singapore.” Then we realised it might not be such a good idea after all. Here are six reasons why:

1. COE is too high

2. Nowhere to install the In-Vehicle Unit

In regular cars, the In-Vehicle Unit is located on the dashboard. We can’t imagine where it will appear when the Transformers are in robot form. In the mouth, perhaps?

3. Too many ERP gantries

Just imagine if the Transformers have to go through ERP gantries every day. At the end of the month, Optimus would probably blow his metal top when he looks at the bill.

4. Difficult to find parking space

With only that much parking space to go around, it’ll be difficult for the Transformers to find a parking space while in their car forms. Maybe they’ll need to download the Summon Auntie app to their system.

5. Reckless drivers would sabotage their missions

Imagine Optimus Prime giving the car in front a friendly honk as it rushes to save the world. Suddenly, the car in front cuts into the lane and begins braking. The plot twist is that the driver is actually part of the Decepticons’ team.

6. The fight scenes would end in 30 seconds

With Singapore’s 710 km² land area, a fight scene between the good guys and bad guys would end in less than a minute because the landscape will be flat in that time.
