Grimlock & Optimus Prime – Transformers Age Of Extinction – Prime 1 Studio

“Autobots, we charge together! Now, roll out!”

In the ultimate team-up, Grimlock and Optimus Prime fight together in an epic battle to save the human race from extinction.

Words can not describe how I excited I was when I saw this piece of art, bad ass has been redefined after the appearance of Grimlock in Transformers – Age Of Extinction and adding Optimus Prime to this piece just takes it to another level. The quality level of this piece is just something else, preorders are out and delivery is in May 2015 and priced at $1899. Only 500 pieces are being produced of this piece and as other Prime 1 pieces they will be flying off the shelf, the nerd in me couldn’t get more excited so I had to put my deposit down for it. The toughest Autobot & Dinobot duo in the Transformers universe.

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.

Movie Inspired Toy Set Photo Art Collection

Toy fan and photographer Edward McGowan has created a fantastic collection of toy scene photo art representing certain movies that I think you’ll really like.

These photographs are amazing, these photographs are taken in a way that gives these models life. I have a lot of toys and models lined up on my shelf and I had a chance to take photographs of them before but not like this. I’m going to try something like this but I don’t know if it is possible with my skills.

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.

Transformers Takara – Optimus Prime MP4

I have had this in a box for over two years hidden in my closet, I got the full set of Takara Transformers over the years, getting one model after the other. So to start it off I decided to open the Optimus Prime Convoy MP4, I have always wondered what it would feel like and how cool it would look.

I was completely wrong it looked so much better then I expected. Optimus Prime felt so realistic and heavy, he is made out of PVC plastic and metal. The build quality is better than one expects from a toy model and since I had a few others to unbox later I decided to transform him into vehicle mode which wasn’t too difficult, even though there were a few moments that brute force was required and I didn’t feel like being patient. After 20 minutes Optimus Prime was in vehicle mode and I was extremely ecstatic looking at the set on the shelf, I’m looking forward opening the other boxes soon.

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.

Review: Transformers Prime

Transformers: Prime is a computer-animated television series that premiered on The Hub on November 2010 with a five-part mini-series, which will be followed by a full season in February 2011. There are 26 episodes scheduled for the first season and another three seasons have been outlined by the screenwriters.

For a CGI animated cartoon it turned out much better then I expected, and they don’t waste any time and jump right into the thick of the story. Optimus Prime at the throat of Megatron with a lot at stake. This is part of the continuing storyline and I hope more autobots show up, I enjoy when they kick Decipticon ass. The first five part miniseries was a lot of fun, I’m going to be looking forward to the upcoming season.
