Marco D'Alfonso pays homage to Norman Rockwell AND Optimus Prime, which is a feat that should be celebrated with cheers and a disavowed existence of Shia LaBeouf.
The first gameplay footage from Highmoon Studios' Transformers: The Fall of Cybertron shows exactly what you want out of this game: Dinobot leader Grimlock transforming and melee-battling a swarm of Insecticons.
The developer doing the narration says it best: "He's a giant space T. rex. It doesn't get any cooler than that."
Fall of Cybertron hits consoles on August 28, 2012.
After 10 years of building giant robots, 49-year-old Chinese artist Zhu Kefeng has finally opened his Transformers theme park, Mr. Iron Robot, in Jiaxing City, Zhejiang Province.
Zhu has been working on various robot commissions for around a decade, building sculptures from recycled metal parts from cars, motorcycles and old machinery. His work on Mr. Iron Robot began in 2010, and now what used to be an abandoned factory is a park with over 600 Transformers-themed sculptures.
"I still remember the joy I felt when playing with iron toys during my childhood, and I wanted to share that joy with children so I decided to build a theme park. The joy shared with others is even more enjoyable," Zhu said.
Your move, Michael Bay.
Lego builder Julius von Bronk has created what might be the single most '80s thing known to man: a Lego Game Boy Transformer with a Tetris cartridge Transformer as a sidekick.
The duo are called Domaster (named after the original Game Boy's dot matrix screen) & Tetrawing, and they transform into a badass robot and a bird, respectively. Two Lego AA batteries form Domaster's guns.
Even more impressive: Tetrawing (in cartridge form) actually fits inside the Lego Game Boy's game slot, and the batteries fit in its battery pack.
