Mondo Dark of the Moon Sentinel Prime poster in the flesh

Incredible art for such a wretched traitor (Photo from Jessecuster)

A few weeks ago, I posted about Mondo‘s exceptional Transformers Dark of the Moon limited edition screen printed poster.

I was lucky enough to get one of the last ones and it arrived the other day. First off, there is nothing quite like a perfect screen-printed poster. Mondo does a fabulous job of picking amazing artists to create unique licensed movie posters of movies, new and old, in the vein of rock concert posters. It’s a niche market, but every poster sells out in minutes. I was hoping for an entire series of Transformers posters ala their previous Star Wars series, but in due time…

I was a bit surprised when the poster arrived in such a sturdy tube, only to see the poster had been rolled inside out. I’ve worked in print shops before and we always rolled the prints with the print to the outside. This is not a criticism, as there is not a standard. It’s just my personal preference to have the roll cling towards the wall instead of away. Professional mounting will make this a non-issue though, which I intend to get done to this poster.

The halftones were incredibly sharp and the colors make this very reminiscent of a pinball game my family owns from the 70’s called Magnotron.  I wonder if this was the artist‘s inspiration at all.  It definitely seems probable.

Hey wait a minute...

I’ve had the question posed to me as to whether these new rock-style posters of pop-culture properties will be “the hot collectible” of our generation. It’s definitely a possibility if the quality of such items continues in the vein of Mondo. To those that received the more-readily-available opening night poster, you missed out on the screen-printed version. Thanks again Mondo!

Transform and prosper – Leonard Nimoy returns to Transformers as Sentinel Prime

Leonard Nimoy to voice Sentinel Prime in Dark of the Moon

This is bad comedy

There has been a lot of voice-acting news recently!

Unlike a false news story that came up last year regarding War For Cybertron, Leonard Nimoy is indeed returning to the Transformers franchise.  This is quite exciting as its another throwback to the original 1985 Animated Movie.  This news comes from a post by Entertainment Weekly where Michael Bay discusses how Mr. Nimoy became involved and his relationship with him.

I for one, am happy to see him come back!  Bring on Dark of the Moon!

Mystery moon robot is Sentinel Prime – inside Ark

Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon Sentinel Prime face

Yay, more canon-defying characters enter the fray.

Mystery solved! The yellow robot from the movie moon trailer turned out to be Sentinel Prime after all. A new article from Entertainment Weekly give us a ton of information regarding the crashed ship on the moon, which turns out to be the Ark after all.

I really am not excited that these characters that are more recent additions to the fiction are becoming so important.  The Fallen was not important enough to be in the last movie, and now we have the defunct Dreamwave Production’s Sentinel Prime becoming a prominent figure in the final Transformers film.  Plus they’re gonna kill Starscream… at least the latest trailer looks promising.  Countdown to July!
