Transformers Post

Well, I have yet to watch the new Transformers movie, so I had to quell the (surprisingly faint) fanboy urges in me by settling with the following online videos:

Costumes Transformers (

I already posted a (different) link to this video before, but this had to belong to a dedicated Transformers post. These are the BEST and COOLEST Transformers I have ever seen! It really looked like they took their time designing them, except for the first one -- and Starscream -- errr, maybe just Optimus Prime. I was surprised when I saw the transformation: the front of the legs unfolded forward, the torso also folded out! the arms locked into place at his side -- and he rolled! I silently chuckled in admiration when he had to shrug his shoulders to set his arms loose. =)

Real Transformer (

A video of a remote-controlled car which suddenly opens up and transforms into a two-legged humanoid robot that walks! And it can transform back into a car, too!

Robo-One 9: Robot Competition - LAYERED-X (

Its description reads:
One of the most surprising robots that appeared at the 9th Robo-One competition held here in Tokyo on March 18-19th, 2006, was LAYERED-X developed by Asurada. Its unique design allows it to reconfigure and transform itself into some amazing shapes. At first it looks like a short tower, then becomes a carousel, then a walking spider, then into a tall biped battle robot. It can even transform an arm into a new leg and keep on fighting. Really amazing. For the latest robot news, information, hacks, photos, and videos with special on-site coverage from Japan, see Robots Dreams at

Robot Chicken Clip - Optimus Prime gets Prostate Cancer (

I've watched a couple of other Robot Chicken episodes, and it's actually cool!

The Rude Awakening of Optimus Prime (

Optimus Prime is brought back to life in the year 2006 to find that many things have changed since his death.
Totally hilarious mutilation and re-dub of the Generation-2 episode where Optimus Prime was resurrected.
