back to article T5 Transformers t-shirt bust: Shock snap

The shock news yesterday that if you're travelling via Heathrow's splendid Terminal 5 it's probably best to leave the Transformers t-shirt at home prompted widespread condemnation of the UK's terror-busting airport security protocols. In the case of Brad Jayakody, he wisely opted to swap the offending shirt for something less …

"dog teams "

I've stared at the picture for 2 minutes and I can't see a dog. My work colleague says they can see it but won't tell me where. Is there really a dog?

see title, especially the al-qaeda pirates. Scary thing is you can almost image it being true, half of the the nitwits in those jobs couldn't spot a weapon if it was waved in their faces.

one question though - where's the dog unit? Or did the dog spot an approved training bag and confuse it for drugs ala japan?

Another Photographic Masterpiece. Not sure if it makes up for the lack of a weekly Friday Playmobil section, but it's nice to have.

It would be funny if it wasn't true

War criminals can go free as long as they are guarded onto the plane, weapon shipments can be bribed through by parliament but you can't take a T shirt with a picture on it.

WHAT IF? I wore a t shirt with that picture on it???? Would that get me banned. Oh wait it might be considered sexual arousal to have that image on as a T shirt because the age of female lego characters can't be determined and one of those poses could be construed as provocative, or worse could be considered illegal as extreme porn images because of the weapons and uniforms, kinky. So I would be arrested for that... and one of the cops has a gun in his hand. Which would clearly get me banned under the "toys with guns get you banned law."

Mines the one with, "I must have taken too much drugs.. this can't be the world we live in." on the back.

OK, now you've done it!

I usually find the PlayMobil dioramas mildly amusing, but this one had me laughing out loud (and disturbing the sleeping family).

Well done, El Reg!

Is it friday already?

This is unfair, publishing Playmobil reconstructions of popular news items on weekdays is not good enough.

I can just about allow myself to spend all day on Friday pressing F5 waiting for these highly entertaining tableaux - but i fear for my job if i get caught on a tuesday doing the same stunt

Tshirt Printing

Someone should definately get that printed onto a front of a Tshirt before their next flight...

Paris, because she'd wear a loose fitted one to hide her 'assets'

Hooray for the Playmobil!

Them pesky Al-Qaeda types get more cunning by the day.

Wasn't Optimus Prime one of the good guys/robots? Mind you, I can well believe that Megatron runs T5, and then OP would be well-justified in blowing the cr*p out of it.

Airport Security = MORONS

I'm sure that I'm not the only one that is fed up with the continuous moronic behavour of airport security plods around the world. Stupid stupid stupid. Like the 5-hours it required to sort out that infant with the name on The List. It's time for 500 people to show up all wearing similar T-shirts. Shut down the friggen system.

PS: Didya hear about Ted Kennedy? He's fine, except (with part of his brain removed) he woke up a Republican.

Could've been better

If you had mentioned that the woman being ordered to the floor had been seen with a 101ml container of water.

Would've totally completed the awesome pic ... it would be even funnier if it didn't ring home quite so loudly :/

But is this perhaps just evidence that you are suffering withdrawal symptoms following the temporary loss of b3ta?

Look for the upturned chair, the dog is between the legs of the chair and the cargo container of weapons of mass destruction.

I see the Moderatrix gave up her handcuffs for the duration of this photo shoot...

Think of how much better the world would be with a satirical diorama rather than Eastenders!

I would suggest that the camouflaged dog is the least of his worries, from appearing behind the green scanner it looks like a panda is walking towards them.

There are errors here...
