it’s wierd to see them explicitly building on the events of the last movie but not bringing back any of the same characters at all, and it’s ridiculous that i guess they’re keeping megatron’s third resurrection a secret still, and also it looks dumb as hell
flat cab optimus hits exactly the right notes from my childhood, even if he still transforms into the same body
also THE FUCKING DINOBOTS
i said last time around that bloodthirsty movie optimus feels more like grimlock, and having guilty exile prime (with a fucking //claymore// strapped to his back) going to the autobot savage land to recruit the dinobots to help him save the earth again (just guessing here but odds are that’s the plot) sounds awesome.
since the toy of galvatron is a flatnose semi cab as well, hopefully this time we’ll actually get the scene we somehow didn’t in dark of the moon where truck prime and truck megatron play chicken on a desert highway and smash into each other with explosive force, transform and brawl like crazy.
while bumblebee rides grimlock into battle
dumb as hell but hopefully not as existentially terrible as dotm
TWO-FISTED NINETIES ACTION
Due to popular response, check out a few pieces of awesome, classic TRANSFORMERS art!
Special thanks to this ultrafan, who seems to have amassed quite the incredible collection!
Would it be weird to get all of these airbrushed on one van?
Everyone knows this is the best one:
i still have a couple of these lunchboxes.
meanwhile, toys are starting to sneak out for the upcoming transformers threequel, “dark of the moon’. apparently this time megatron also turns into a big-ass truck. hopefully he and optimus will play chicken on a desert highway somewhere, slamming full speed into each other, transforming, and then fighting.
or making out. whatever. there’s almost no chance of the movie being good but i’m holding out for awesome.
this was in 2011 and i’m still mad that scene somehow never happened. the toys for transformers four include an optimus and a galvatron who both turn into flat front semi cabs, and if there’s no jousting then what is the damn point.
oh nineties nineties nineties
Man, at this rate I’m gonna be pasting full-page scans of this issue before tonight is through, ain’t I.
transformers in the 90s
two pouches seems like not quite enough
EDIT: Wait wait wait wait, I think those pouches are smaller than his individual fingers. Well, that’s practical.
I should mention that this is what this artist’s art looks like otherwise. The Nineties were clearly a weird time for us all.
the dinobots are seriously so beautiful you guise
such dinosaur, very transform, so beast wars
AOE Generations Voyager Class
i’m fairly well in the minority on this, but the mechtech dark of the moon deluxes are fantastic toys, and mudflap is my favorite. i’ve been headcanoning him and skids as dwarven craftsmen / wreckers since revenge of the fallen, and this mudflap isn’t as gorgeous orange as his predecessor, but is actually transformable, and just as superposable.
but in all the interchangesble mechtech 5mm gear, i never found a weapon set that matches his color scheme and mood, until just this weekend, when u finally found a generations voyager fall of cybertron grimlock, who doesn’t need weapons in t-rex mode anyways.
and who i may not keep either, now that i’ve seen the gorgeous transmetal 2esque grimlock from age of extinction.
