TRANSFORMERS! MORE THAN MEETS YOUR EVIL GLOWING RED EYES!
eyest.jpg


The best toys to come out of the ‘80s are still going strong after twenty-five years. Let’s take a look at what’s on the shelves right now, shall we?


Transformers Animated

The most recent animated series, appropriately called Transformers Animated, which currently airing (reruns) on Cartoon Network. Unfortunately, it was revealed at this years Botcon that the recent third season is the show’s final one, and the TFA toyline is going on hiatus as retailers have stopped ordering the figures to make room for the movie figures. But don’t worry, we’ve been promised that all those awesome Animated figures that have been shown off WILL be available for us to buy sometime in 2010. Show your appreciation to Hasbro by giving them your money.


Transformers Universe

Along with Transformers Animated, there is Transfomers Universe, which is a toy-only line of Transformers, generally focusing on re-imagining Generation 1 characters but throwing in occasional favorites from other TF franchises as well. This line is also going to be on hiatus as retailers fill their shelves with movie figures, but if you’re lucky you can find some on the shelves still.


Which brings us to the movie.


TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

tfmoviesd.jpg

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has just come out and has already been savaged by critics worldwide. But we, the consumer whores, know that we go to this film for one thing and one thing only, robots beating the snot out of other robots! And there is a lot of robots beating the snot out of each other. The toyline is currently filling toy shelves everywhere, so go out and buy your favorite Transformer who had one line and was on-screen for two minutes while you’re picking up your Leader-class Optimus Prime and your Baron Ransack von Joy.


THE FUTURE!


But what is next, for the Transformers franchise, you may ask? How can they reinvent the already fucking awesome concept of robots turning into vehicles yet again and keep us entertained? Sources indicate they are considering three different directions to take the Transformers franchise after the buzz from the new live-action film cools down. I’ve put these behind spoiler tags so as to shield those spoiler-free Nazis from griping.
Spoiler:




THE TF WIKI!

All links in this OP point to the Transformers Wiki, the brainchild of David Willis, author of Shortpacked! and other webcomics, and one scarily huge Transformers fan. If you want to know something about Transformers, look there, or ask us and we’ll look there for you.

    I managed to pick up Blitzwing today, and a Pachycephelasaurus "Dino-Mech" during my stay in Orlando. It's alright, no leg articulation, but it has a decent altmode, transformation, and plastic quality.

    Oh yeah Blitzwing, I forgot there's one at my local Kmart that I've been meaning to pick up.

    Thank god no one with more than 8 bucks on their person shops at Kmart, he wont be going anywhere for months.

    Edit: and I still say that the Transformers cartoon that's made prior to movie 3 should be a bridgegap between TF2 and TF3. Then we can fit a shitton of new characters in and work our way to Unicron without having to stuff it all into one movie, or have to read a shittily written/draw comic.

    Sideswipe not getting more screentime was a travesty.

    Also, Jolt not getting any action scenes. A bot with Electro whips would be rad.

    Okay, so aside from:

    - terrible PG-13 humor

    - racism

    - human beings

    it was a good movie. When

    I just couldn't fathom how someone couldn't enjoy watching giant robots fight each other.

    Exactly. People calling it racist are just looking for more reasons to hate the movie.

    I watched it and didn't find them anymore racist than Jazz.

    They're deep metaphors for the casual racism found in mainstream media today (cause thats where they learned how to behave you see, much like children, oh god I don't know if this straight face I'm holding is from supreme self control or a stroke, someone call an ambulance)

    bingo

    I hope the Dinobots aren't in the third film so Michael Bay can't butcher them
    he'll probably use Beast if they're in because IT'LL BE AWESOME
    Man

    how do you think Michael "I am awesome at action" Bay would fuck up Robotic dinosaurs whose greatest strength is smashing things up

    Well, since it's Bay, and he's not so big on the science, he'd give their alt modes balls.

    Seriously though

    the Dinobots are the perfect additions to the Bay movies

    characters that love to smash shit up and look really awesome who are dumb as hell and have no reason to have clever dialogue.

    the fact remains that they weren't fucking funny either way
