Last year we checked out an awesome Gundam model that was painted to look like it was an anime drawing. Transformers action figure painter LEK Custom Toys did the same trick to Takara Tomy Masterpiece Optimus Prime and Soundwave figures.
The Generation 1 Transformers join Fascination Toys’ Metal Earth 3D model kits. The flat-pack kits come in four models – Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Soundwave – that are just under 4″ tall when assembled.
Here’s a promo video by Vat19, which for some reason rebranded the kits as Metal Works:
You can order the Transformers Metal Earth kits from Vat19 for $12 (USD) each or from Amazon for $11 each.
An Optimus Prime cake that transforms? That is something very awesome right there. It’s like a toy and a cake in one. Now all that’s left to do is for Hasbro to package Prime Cakes and sell them in the grocery store so I can devour them.
This awesome LEGO creation comes from Mad Physicist. It is a fully transforming Optimus Prime at 1/22 scale. Fans will know right away that the design was based on the movie version of the leader of the Autobots.
Paperformed makes a variety of papercraft models that it sells as DIY kits. Two of its most advanced kits are the Changeable Robots. They’re scale models clearly inspired by Transformers, and like Hasbro’s toys these bots have humanoid and vehicle forms.
One of the things I always wondered about in the Transformers cartoons growing up was what would happen if the Decepticons won the war with the Autobots. I think the Autobots would all be destroyed if Megatron claimed victory.
Earlier this year we featured Takara Tomy’s killer crossover combo action figures of Optimus Prime as a Sony PlayStation and Megatron as a Sega Mega Drive. It turns out the toy maker also released a US variant of the latter – Genesis Megatron.
It’s the 10th Doctor from the Minecraft universe. And TARDIS Prime. Hmmm. If TARDIS Prime is bigger on the inside then couldn’t he have all of the transformers inside of him? And is he driven by the Minecraft Doctor or is he just visiting from a parallel universe?
October is here, which means in stores across the country Christmas ornaments are in stock. If you are already looking forward to the holidays and decorating your home, check out these cool and geeky ornaments for your tree.
Make light meet your eyes at night with the Transformers Autobot light. It grabs power through USB, so you won’t need to look for Energon cubes.
The lamp measures about 8 “x 8″x 3”, is made of plastic with a brushed silver finish, and has non-slip feet to help it stay upright.
Thanks to the Transformers’ 30th anniversary, we’ve seen Optimus Prime and Megatron turned into glam rockers and bears. Now they’re also video game consoles. Takara Tomy will be releasing limited edition action figures of Optimus Prime as a Sony PlayStation and Megatron as a Sega Genesis aka Mega Drive.
Turn into a pretty Autobot with these cute A-line dresses from Her Universe. Part of the shop’s officially licensed Transformers collection, the dresses are available in Optimus Prime and Bumblebee designs.
You can order the dresses from Her Universe for $45 (USD) each.
We’ve seen what Transformers look like as rockers. Now check them out as bears in disguise. Bearbricks to be exact. As another Transformers 30th anniversary special, Hasbro teamed up with boutique toy maker Medicom to create Bearbrick editions of Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee and Starscream.
A couple of years ago we featured a Decepticon engagement ring that Gipson Diamond Jewelers made for a lucky bride-to-be. It turns out Gipson has an Etsy shop where you can get that same ring as well as two other Transformers-themed rings.
The Transformers turn 30 this year. Fortunately, we don’t just have Michael Bay’s upcoming movie to mark the occasion. Hasbro will also be releasing a tongue-in-cheek homage to its money-printing toy line’s roots. The Transformers 30th Anniversary Tour Edition casts some of the robots in a glam metal band called Knights of Unicron.
