I know this isn't meant for me, but...

I think this is one of the most ridiculous attempts to seem "modern" I've seen in quite some time. I'm looking forward to the movie, but this is just outright goofy. What kid is going to look at these and want them? This is some old guy's version of what he thinks kids want.

This has got to be a spoof/prank.

That thought did cross my mind, but I think it's real.

Is it any worse than the Watchmen toaster?

There are other toasters, too, that seem . . . excessive?

Even knowing other toasters like that exist, it stsill seems a deliberate slap at Moore.

Well, I didn't mean it that badly, but it does seem some people at DC are almost personally offended he won't work with them.

The toaster's a pretty calculated insult.

That is exactly what a Rorschach toaster should do! Good thinking.

I'm not sure how you'd get a toaster to do that.
