Someone fully animated a scene from More than Meets The Eye – Skids vs legistlators

Stop what you’re doing and watch this right now!

So this incredible piece of animation essentially uses the comic panels illustrated by Alex Milne in More Than Meets The Eye issue 2 as key frames for the sequence.  This must have been no easy feat…

The sound and voice acting is from a audio-comic fan retelling of the entire issue by a group calling themselves Team Train Wreck.  Their efforts are also well-received by this Collecticon and it also deserves a focus watch if you’re a fan of the comics. See below.

I’m simply breathless every time I see one of these intense fan creations to augment the already incredible comic book. If anything this just shows how much the core fanbase would love to see the More Than Meets The Eye storyline come to life in animated form.

I give a heart-felt thank you to the fans that are spending their free time contributing to these types of projects and I simply cannot wait for the next batch!!!

Meet all the robot vehicles of Transformers 4

Transformers 4 is filming as we speak! Another two year stretch of Transformers madness is upon us, and this time, it seems some interested parties have learned a thing or two. Most of the information about the film has been coming directly from Michael Bay’s website. I applaud this effort, and the photos coming from set have kept much to be determined about the plot points.

With the reveal of the new Bumblebee car, we have apparently exhausted allt he pretty vehicle product shots for this movie. The cast looks to be our biggest yet, with over 10 confirmed new transforming vehicles. Have you met them all yet? If not, feast your eyes on the complete (as of now) robot cast of Transformers 4.

Can fan-fiction characters actaully enter the movie-verse? Apparently yes!

Supposedly this is an Autobot named Slingshot, but that information is pretty suspect

This is probably Grimlock

A lot of guesses on this one but all signs are pointing to Stunticons appearing in this film, lead by Motormaster

What you may have missed in the latest Transformers 3 trailer – Wheeljack, Mirage, Skids, Mudflap, Crankcase and more

Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon autobots in hanger

I spy with my little eye, two little shit heads!

After yesterday’s reveal of the Transformers Dark of the Moon trailer, it’s time to dissect every little morsel and see what we can see. If you look at the image above, you will see some significant information. First off, you can see Mirage (Ferarri). After that we see Sideswipe (Corvette), Wheeljack (blue car), and THE TWINS!!!!  I have no idea why Bay seems so adamant about telling us the twins are not in the movie.  It’s just silly.  Also in this scene will be Ratchet, Ironhide, and Optimus Prime.  So where is Bumblebee?

Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon Dreads and Crankcase

Yay, more legions of nameless Decepticons

Here we have an enormous amount of Decepticons waking up on the moon. Why are they there? I’m sure there will be absolutely zero explanation for such a ridiculous occurrence. The Autobot Ark crashed there and is on the surface but there are thousands of Decepticons and their warships laying dormant. Really cool… what in the hell is going on here? Regardless, that is the face of the very buglike Crankcase (or The Dreads), which turns into the black lifted SUV’s seen on set and crashing into Ironhide in the trailer. Ole bug-eyes wants to eat you!

Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon shockwave and octopus

Looks like someone just killed his pet octopus, and he is all out of bubblegum

Of course we finally have Shockwave and his pet Octopus. In this very brief look at ol’ One-Eye, he is seen cocking his incredibly large cannon attached to his right arm. Generation 1 fans will be quick to note that it should be on his LEFT ARM, damn you design team! He is looking down LaSalle street after what I am surmising to be the destruction of the titanic robotic hydra worm, which I am dubbing the Wormy Durmy. There is some sort of hint at the identity or origin of the Wormy Durmy in one of the preview comics but I simply don’t care enough to look yet. Shockwave looks pretty mean! I hope he keeps his cold logic versus being portrayed as an angry scary brute. His simplistic nature is what makes him so chilling.

Transformers 3 jetwing Optimus Prime kicks ass Decepticons

Here he comes to save the daaaay! But from who exactly?

In this little scene, which we saw in the last trailer, we can see a variety of old Decepticons including a Brown Brawl, Barricade lookalike, and Long Haul lookalike. Prime blasts Longhaul after landing, stabs and slams Barricade to the ground, and appears to slice Brawl right in half. That leaves just some random Decepticons and Shockwave left on the upper side of Wacker where the scene takes place. So who is going to throw down with Shockers – Optimus or Sentinel??

Will Skids and Mudflap finally combine in Transformers Dark of the Moon?

Transformers Movie Twins combined face

A face only a robo-mother could love

It’s no secret that the Twins from Transformers Revenge of the Fallen were designed as some sort of counterparts to each other.  In fact, when merging their body renders, it becomes clear that they were probably intended to combine into some sort of super-soldier.  It all makes perfect sense really: two stupid goofy robots that can handle stand up straight on their own merge into a highly intelligent and unworldly strong single unit.  Each even had opposite enlarged arms and by looking at the faces above it can be seen that each bot has opposing features.  I have no doubt that this was a facet of the Twins that ended up on the cutting room floor due to ROTF’s bloated visual vomit and lack of cohesive story plot points.  They even battled Devastator, who was a combination of may robots.  It’s only right and natural to have opposing forces with the same powers battle it out in Transformers lore.

So now Mudflap and Skids will be returning as shadowy versions of their formers selves in Transformers Dark of the Moon.  My money is on the fact that these guys will finally combine in an attempt to get kids to say WOW!  Unfortunately, the proof was in the design from the get-go.  Let’s hoping for Skidflap!
