Seeker time!

As it turns out, the chases are indeed Thundercracker and Skywarp.  I was lucky enough to nab a Thundercracker in my 3 pack I got in store this morning at Rotofugi.  I also snagged some photos of the Starscream version with some of his more Transformers brethren.

News of the weird: Half-ton ‘Transformers’ wine-rack for sale $7000

Transformers winerack on craigslist $7000

Wino-tron

In case you didn’t want to buy a Transformers pinball machine this year but still have $7000 burning a hole in your shorts, I present to you this arcane creation available on the Phoenix Craigslist.  The amalgamation is listed as “Half Ton Transformer-style Wine Rack made of auto transmission parts” and is priced at $7000.

Clearly a Decepticon, the beast touts a 32 bottle capacity that will surely make you the talk of Cybertron.

Feel my grapes of wrath!

Unfortunately, it’s a stretch to label this a Transformer, considering the articulation is nil, it does not even remotely represent any character, and it’s just downright ugly.  My favorite part are the shoes strewn about, as if Winotron has laid waste to all the come before him.  Happy Friday.

Destroy the Robot Masters – the best 8-bit Transformers shirt yet at RIPT Apparel

cool daily t shirt RIPT

Who will MEGA Man challenge first?

RIPT Apparel did it again, with just a few days before Botcon starting. Transformerland is about to go into fever-mode and this is the match that will light the fire!

Let me explain this shirt if you are a bit miffed: This is a parody of the start screen for the original 8-bit NES game Mega Man 2 which featured 8 bosses. You chose which level you wanted to play based on the boss of that level. Each boss had the suffix “man” on their name. For instance: Cut Man, Guts Man, Crash Man, Flash man, etc. This was repeated for almost every Mega Man game following it, the first game only had 6 bosses (and was hard as hell!).

Mega Man 2 start screen bosses

Just in case you are too young to have ever played a game that didn't basically play itself.

Not only that, the bosses were called the “robot masters,” which is a name also shared by a faction of Transformers in Japan. Robot Masters was a short-run line of toys from the early 2000’s.

So yeah, the shirt is brilliant. Thanks Ninjaink for another amazing design at RIPT Apparel!

Megatron helmet t-shirt design

Megatron loses his hat!

I just caught wind of tomorrow’s RIPT Apparel t-shirt called “Full Die-cast Jacket.” If you’re scratching your dandruff-ridden heads about what that means, it’s meant to be a parody of Stanley Kubrick’s classic masterpiece “Full Metal Jacket.”  The artist is a long-time Transformers fan named Dann Matthews, you can check out more of his work at danndesigns.com.

The shirt will be on sale starting at midnight CST tonight so get your paypal passwords ready!
