Transformers Prime – Beast Hunters – Predacons Rising

Chronicles the epic battle between the Decepticons and the Autobots in their mission to defend Earth and one day restore their home planet of Cybertron.

This is a sweet ending to the Transformers Prime series, it has been an amazing series with a fantastic storyline development with this 60 minute movie being the perfect final twist. With the end of the series I wasn’t satisfied but with this I was, but I can’t get enough of Peter Cullen, his voice will forever be the guiding voice of Optimus Prime. I couldn’t believe the ending, but I won’t ruin it for anyone but it was a hell of a final battle. I hope that Transformers continue on its success with the new movie and then another animation comes out, since this new one has a lot based on the next stage of the Transformers. If you enjoyed the series you will love this short movie.

Soundwave & Lazerbeak

SoundWave1

Soundwave is by far my favorite Decepticon, so sure of his calculated actions, and extremely loyal to Megatron, he is the most robotic of the Transformers, no feelings just pure logic and unchanging, and also the most resourceful of the Decepticons. When Megatron wants bruteforce he calls on Shockwave, and when he was ultimate loyalty and missions success then he calls on Soundwave.

SoundWave2

After so long Takara has finally come up with the most realistic and cleanest build of Soundwave that I have seen. He even Transforms into a big 80s Take deck Stereo. The build is honestly very high quality and really reminds me of the 80s Transformers, and the cool part is that Lazerbeak is really a tape, you can transform him into the buzzard, but I would rather keep him as the tape inside of Soundwave.

SoundWave3

In his lefthand is a sensor which he uses check around him and certain systems, but his left hand is the interesting weapon. For those who know, the left hand is Megatron in miniaturized form, not just the arm weapon, megatron turns into a hand held weapon and in this case Soundwave is the one wielding it. Well worth getting this piece for any Transformers fan.

SoundWave4

I had to place him with the rest of the Decepticons, the Seekers, in this case they are Star Scream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp. They are three nasty Decepticons, but Soundwave tops them all, and I still think that this is one of the best models from Takara after Optimus Prime.

Price: $229

Transformers Prime – Epic

Since being incapacitated I have just had a chance to catch up with Transformers Prime, I had a marathon and I was like a kid eating candy watching this show. Volume set to high and the Subwoofer set to shake the building, every damn episode got better and better. Every episode for the last 10 episodes of season 2 just kept getting better and better. I like that there is a serious tone in this show, Megatron is a real bad guy, not just a funny cartoon evil guy and he does win at times, and Prime is play by Peter Cullin, the same original voice from the original 80s Transformers. Over the past two seasons they have more then proven that there is a depth to the characters and it is targeting both a young audience and those who remember it from the 80s, I don’t feel like I’m watching a kids show because I really get caught up in it and this season was just over the top.

Towards the end things took a more intense twist and the battles got more intense and for once it didn’t revolve around the humans, the Autobots and Decepticons kept going at each other to find the final items. If you are even remotely a Transformers fan, this show is a must watch, it doesn’t disappoint at all and the ending is just over the top, I don’t know what they are planning for the third season I just hope they keep up this pace.

Decepticons – More Then Meets The Eye

There is something that I like about the Decepticons, and I always wondered why they were jet planes, and only a few Autobots were jet planes, I couldn’t think of only two Autobots, the rest were all Decepticons. These are three Decepticon models that I have put together, one is Starscream and I left him in vehicle mode, and the other two Skywarp & Thundercracker I turned into robot mode and once I got the first one down the second one was much easier.

Placement was not much of an issue I had a corner all carved out for the Autobots and Transformers, they are all in the same place but the Decepticons look small compared to Optimus Prime, or to be exact all the versions of Optimus Prime that I could get my hands on. They are all proudly displayed in the corner in my office and I’m just waiting for the day for them to come alive. These models are the original Takara models that I got from a few years ago, I still haven’t gotten the Megatron Model because I don’t like the quality of it but I know I will cave in eventually and find him on ebay.

Rocawear Transformers Gear

Rocawear, fresh off the success of pairing Jay-Z’s lyrics with Snoopy and Peanuts (not Snoop Doggy Dogg), has collaborated once again, but this time it’s Hasbro’s Transformers. Yes, the box office smash hit has partnered with Shawn Carter’s Rocawear for an offering of a variety of t-shirts. Check out what turned out to be an incredible collision of hip hop energy, autobots and decepticons, we’re sure you won’t be disappointed!

As soon as I saw the selection of T-Shitrs from Rocawear with cool collaboration between JayZ and Transformers I had to have them! I love the look of them, I wish they did something on the back of the tshirts as well. I just couldn’t resist the cool tshirts with Optimus Prime, Autobots, and the other Decepticons on it. I picked up every tshirt they had available I just hope that XL fits me comfortably.

Transformer – Dark Side Of The Moon

The Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the Moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and to learn its secrets

There is no denying that I am huge fan of Transformers and loved the first movie, and enjoyed the second even though it wasn’t as good as I hoped it would be. But Transformers Dark Side Of The Moon or TF3 surpassed my expectations, and sent me over the top. The story was so well thought out that I was seriously caught off guard, I didn’t know what to expect and it blew me away. Michael Bay did the whole line of Transfomers justice with this movie, and it really is a movie to end this series on. I am one person who is not happy that the Transformers movies are coming to an end but with this movie it ends on a high note. There were some Autobots that are killed and one of my favorites, and dying in a very shocking way, totally unexpected and it just kept getting crazier and crazier. The story got mixed and deeper in a way I wasn’t expecting and Shia LeBeouf really did an amazing job, and as usual Optimus Prime is a leader to follow, and I loved the comedic touches throughout the movie, timed perfectly with the action. So much to love and I was on the edge of my seat at times during the movie and I hope that somebody picks it up even 10 years down the line. For now as a fan of Transformers I am happy and will be watching it again and again for many years to come.

Decepticons Diorama

There is nothing cooler then the Transformers and seeing the Decepticons in this Diorama. Megatron in all his glory surrounded by his lieutenants and the conniving StarScream in the back. I especially love Soundwave, and I haven’t seen Lazerbeak and Ravage in so long. Its so life like that I think that they are real live characters, the detail is just amazing.

Customizer frenzy_rumble takes it to the next level with a very intense Decepticon base diorama. Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream, Reflector, Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage and Laserbeak have frenzy_rumble’s trademark look, and are held in a heavily modified i-Gear Ark.
