Nice concept but do we really need this type of thing going on when so much of a custom built PC can already be customized. I know I certainly would not be buying a board based on colors or looks... It's all about function in my mind.
Tablets and toys, and now motherboards! How will I tell them apart!?
As long as they WORK right, who cares what they look like? (I know, plenty of you)
I'm more into function.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.

+1 Bro, but CARS and WOMEN are a different matter!
SPAM-posters beware! ®
When I build a PC, trust me, there is a colour scheme. Gonna see it every day, better look nice.
You're only gonna see your motherboard everyday if you've got an open case or window so not necessarily.
Some enthusiast modder is gonna pick these babies up and make some sort of awesome transformer themed case mod/build, can't wait to see it!
Realistically though I think the theme and colors are more likely to turn off buyers because builders who will see their motherboard will most likely (as MayhemMatthew mentioned) have a color scheme and want things to match, and I doubt there are other things that would look good or even match these motherboards
At least this product is actually endorsed by hasbro and the Transformers Series
*cough* Asus *cough*
As long as Hasbro officially endorses these (to avoid lawsuits), then I think there are a few modders that would be interested in these boards (although if they were standard LGA-1155 boards instead there would be more interest).
when i was browsing through this on my phone i thought it said asus for a second... was like is this asus's way to piss hasbro off more? :D
You aren't the only one. :)
Inspector:was like is this asus's way to piss hasbro off more?
Ha! If so, it's a good dig at them.
Well Asrock is a spin off of Asus. Hmm
CDeeter:Well Asrock is a spin off of Asus. Hmm
Yeah, ASUS owns ASRock. It was part of a ~transformation~ a few years back.
Yup, more than meets the eye here. LOL
