Can I say that I love Kickstarter? It’s such a great place for new ideas to get off the ground which would have never otherwise happened. It’s also a place for outlandish ideas to get funded by geeks like us.
If you ever wondered what it might look like if the Transformers got their groove on to The Funk of 40,000 Years, now’s your chance. This unusual Japanese animation from last Christmas features the Autobots getting down to Michael Jackson’s classic Thriller, complete with all the zombie-like dance moves you’d expect from such a thing.
Remember the Chinese dude who built himself a 5-ton Megatron? Well, the man going by the nickname “Steel Legend” is back and he’s made a bunch more scrap metal Transformers, from Autobots to Decepticons. He sure love robots.
This amazing Transformers Megatron tank sculpture was created in China and it’s a pretty impressively large thing, weighing in at almost 5 tons. The tank was created by Jiang Chen and Yang Junlin’s Wing Wah ironworks factory.
I played with LEGOs all the time as a kid and the construction blocks have been around for years. There are other construction brands that are similar to LEGO on the market, and Hasbro has announced a new competing offering called KRE-O.
Jason Brockert’s American Icon is a series of still life paintings of his childhood toys. Brockert says he chose his subjects “with a twinge of nostalgia”, and that “these paintings indulge in a mix of whimsy and seriousness.”
Michael Bay and company continue to slaughter redefine the classic robot franchise. Movie website JoBlo was able to score a few pics of the action figure version of Megatron in Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, and…and… he looks kinda bad ass.
How come it is that when I go to a party, the ice sculpture centerpiece looks like a swan or maybe a unicorn? Somehow I never manage get myself invited to the really cool parties, like the one where they had a giant ice carving of Optimus Prime?
I know how complicated LEGO creations can be, but I’m equally impressed with people who customize action figures. I could be wrong, but isn’t it harder to find or sculpt parts compared to looking for LEGO bricks?
So. Let’s see what we have here. Okay. This is a challenge. This G1 Bumblebee hat is made of fleece, and uhm, it’s puffy and yellow. I guess it does offer a degree of protection, which is cool if you’re a Transformers fan who also happens to be an amateur boxer, or if people are hitting you in the head because you’re wearing a Bumblebee hat.
I guess the guys in China felt they had to try and keep up with Japan and their gigantic robot creations, and built themselves an enormous Optimus Prime of their own.
Standing 32-feet tall, and residing just North of the Bird’s Nest at Beijing’s Olympic Park, the giant Transformer might not be as tall as giant Gundam, but you have to hand it to the Chinese for their ingenuity.
Holy crap. If you’re a Transformers fan with deep pockets, you’d better get out your credit card and get your ass over to eBay and bid on this bad boy now.
Created by custom figure builder uuser, this awesomely awesome 18 inch-tall custom Omega Supreme figure is so intricately detailed, I might just weep.
This incredible Transformer truck sculpture was recently erected by students at the China Central Academy of Fine Arts.
The statue measures in at nearly 32 feet-tall, and weighs in at a staggering 4 tons! Incredibly, it’s almost entirely made from parts from an old truck.
The guys at Japan’s Seahope, known for many a cool digital watch – have partnered up with Takara Tomy to produce a new timepiece inspired by the Transformers.
While it’s not exactly clear from this early concept sketch, we’re hoping the chronolabel LED Transformer will transform from a watch to a stand-up clock.
