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.

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.

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.

The All Spark Cube

This item is to be recognized only by those who are very familiar with the Transformers movie, this is the All Spark Cube that Megatron tried killing Sam Witwicky to get. Glyphs etched into metal and weathered to give the authentic look, just like in the Transformers movie. The 1:3 scale, 2.75 in (7cm) squared replica All Spark Cube is made of die-cast metal, the weight of it makes it feel very real. It sits on my desk witha miniature stand to display the cube and it really does look extraterrestrial.

Transformers 3 – July 1st 2011

Now this is something to look forward to, Michael Bay has just announced that he is currently getting on board for Transformers 3, even though he previously mentioned that he wanted some time off to work on other projects but I’m assuming the money was too much to resist. Now I have something to look forward to from this amazing story line, and I am one who does enjoy his dose of Transformers, I’m really hoping for a damn good movie with a really good story line. Now for the funny part is what was happening off set, it seems that Michael Bay and Megan Fox hate each other more then the Autobots hate the Decepticons, they have been taking blows at each other all year long since the launch of Transformer 2 Revenge of the Fallen, so I’m not sure how she got on board for this movie but it seems she is, and the best part is seeing what Michael said on his blog.

P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back. I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you.

Pain and Gain is right after shooting of Trans 3.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

This has been a long awaited movie for the past two years, a follow up to the blockbuster of 2007. This time around the decepticons are out in number, it has been two years since the Autobots have landed on earth and they have joined a task force of humans to fight the remaining decepticons across the globe. They are getting to them one on every continent and more keep showing up, they don’t know what exactly they are looking for but they are searching for something. Sam is off to college, until he touches the cube again only to realize that he is now seeing symbols everywhere.

You get introduced to the new autobots right away with Prime as their leader, Megatron isn’t any where to be found and Starscream is the coward leading the decepticons on this search. Soundwave is the one the more interesting Decepticons, we were used to him as a Stereo from the original Transformers but this time around he is a Satellite with amazing hacking abilities. You also meet a few new autobots such as the twins, the motorcycle autobot and Sideswipe the mean looking corvette and thats just the beginning of it, and one of the best in the movie is Jetfire but he is a little different then the original but you will see what I mean when you watch it.

This is one action packing movie from start until end, I didn’t realize that it would be that long. I didn’t realize how much time went by because I was stuck to my seat hoping that each time they confront that the Autobots would win and Sam would get where he is going. There were a few scenes which had me ties to my seat and I was shocked at a few points but I loved every moment of it. For those who were criticizing the movie saying its not as good as the first one, I think they are mistaken its even better, so many Autobots and Decepticons duking it out, armies coming into full battle, and new storyline that keeps you tied to your seat and introducing new concepts about the Autobots and Decepticons and so much more. I loved every moment of the movie, I want to watch it again, I can’t wait to get it on Blu-Ray.
