Shia-watch 2016: Shia Labeouf got married and somehow we missed it.

Hunk’a hunk’a burnin’ love

Merry Christmas, Collecticons!

I was awoken today when my girlfriend informed me that our very own Shia Labeouf was wed recently. The fact that I learned this from somewhere outside of the Transfandom shocked me so this Collecticon felt it was time to inform the rest of us.

In an (according to Shia himself) accidental turn of events, his wedding was live-streamed to the world.  You can view the live-streamed wedding below.

The reason my girlfriend informed me of this was because she is in holiday lethargy mode and was reading a list of people married in 2016. Go figure, this happened back in October!

All in all, congratulations guys and let’s hope we see this happy couple resurface in Transformers 6: The Search for Even More Money.

Wow, RIPT Apparel is stepping up their game.  Not only did they create ANOTHER exclusive comic book cover, but this time they totally went over the top this time. Rarely do you ever see the TF:TM poster get homaged and this time it did.  The results are stunning and really get me pumped to dive into Lost Light!  Rodimus is looking badass in that nemesis paint scheme too!

The captain has come back to reclaim the ship!

Yes, it’s true.  The gray prototype was in fact a Takara-led release of Megatron in the newer, tidier Masterpiece scale to go along with MP-10. It looks awesome.

Prepare for the return of Masterpiece Megatron, finally!

Let the slaughter begin! Digibash by someone that’s not me.

Alerts of a new terrorist threat hit Weibo (Chinese Twitter) today around 8:00 AM CST. Authorities were on the scene immediately and fortunately no civilians were hurt.  No terrorist organizations have yet taken responsibility for the attack, which has lead citizens of the world to surmize who the responsible parties may be. Many have pointed the finger at Third-party entities, while others believe an entirely new mysterious shadow organization called the attack. What is becoming clear as the day progresses is that this may actually be an inside job from the authorities at TakaraTomy of Japan. The company gave no comment when questioned.

Only time will tell, but until then, no one can sleep safe.

I was but a wee lad when I first gazed upon this film with all it’s glory.  The swear words, the death, the amazingly-animated transformation sequences, and of course, the best of it all, Planet of Death Unicron debuting in the Transformers mythos!
