Gigantic robot Bumblebee we see in Transformers movies is quite badass, and transforms into a super cool Camaro. Yet, he wouldn’t hold a light to this guy. This one doesn’t have the same badass look, transforms into something that looks like a toy Escalade, and won’t be shooting bad guys with massive cannons.
Artist Darren Rawlings has created a series where popular cars are reimagined as Transformers, another favorite in the automobile/giant robot genre. The illustrations are part of a series named If They Could Transform and present beloved, non-Transformer cars in their Transformer avatars. And we got to say, most of these transformations keep their badass characteristics running. Ecto-1 as a ghost busting Transformer? Hell yeah!
Transformers 4 Age of Extinction, first trailer. The movie will be in theaters on June 27.
As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control – all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs. The epic adventure and battle between good and evil, freedom and enslavement ensues.
Transformers movies are all about cars, explosions, giant robots and sometimes, there’s even a plot thrown in! Well, you can’t ask for more than that. Bumblebee being one of the important characters of the movie, surely does deserve all the attention he gets. The giant robot and Camaro Bumblebee is up for a new look in the upcoming Transformers 4 movie, and these images show just what it’s going to look like.
Here we are, walking into April, and the winter just refuses to let go. On the upside, we get to spend some time with goodies like this corcheted Optimus Prime helmet. We strongly in favor of this being an all season thing, but the winter is just a better excuse and a more comfortable time.
Autobots take on Decepticons inn this well executed and interestingly made stop motion video of Lego transformers battling it out. It’s got action, it’s got style, Michael Bay would have made something like this if he were working with Legos. Although massive explosions are missing from the video, but we can count on Michael Bay to take care of that.
Star Wars and Transformers may be universes apart, but logic obviously cannot stop Hasbro from mixing the two up. Behold, the mighty Darth Vader who transforms into Death Star when needed. We can only imagine how tiny a Darth Vader Death Star would be, or how gigantic Darth Vader could be. Maybe he would beat the crap out of Galactus.
The transforming Darth Vader sells for $130. Or you could have something on the lines of Darth Vader that transforms into a Class III Star Destroyer for ~$33. The force isn’t strong with this one.
Working skillfully with cross-stitch, the lord of the needle, Lord Libidan makes some truly impressive things. We’re totally digging these transformable Optimus Prime and Jetfire made using cross-stitch. Of course, he uses references, but it isn’t so easy when you cover them in thread and make them transform. He plans to create more of cross-stitch transformers, with Soundwave and Starscream set to come up next.
Now this is some hardcore Lego building skills. Not only is this an awesome Bumblebee replica, but the Lego autobot can actually transform and become a car, and then go back to being a towering robot. And yes, that makes it all the more better. The Lego transformer is the creation of Wes Pitter.
