Show them you love them with the Hate Plague.

Sometimes when I’m listening to the Tower gang I forget I’m not actually on the podcast that week and start talking to them. This was one of those weeks. When they were discussing 28 Days Later, I was reminded of the classic 2-part episode of The Transformers: “The Return of Optimus Prime.” (Spoiler alert: Optimus […]

Transformers 4 … wait… WHAT?

Well, color me gobsmacked.  I was convinced that newish character Lockdown (first seen in Cartoon Network’s Transformers Animated) was being brought into the Bayverse continuity as a herald for Unicron. We hear Lockdown speak for the first time in this commercial and what he says suggests otherwise…and it makes the Bay films even stickier.  “You […]

Happy 30th Birthday, Transformers!

May 8th, 1984 is generally thought of as the “birthday” of the Transformers as we know them in America, as it is the day the first issue of the Marvel comic came out. Below is the commercial – for the comic! – I saw during an episode of G.I. Joe, where I first witnessed the […]

This TF4 promo shot has its priorities all wrong.

Well, I’ve been waiting for an image of Sophia Myles as her character “The Girl in the Lab Coat” from Transformers: Age of Extinction to pop up… and it did, just not where I was expecting. Much to the displeasure of gun nuts everywhere, the lovely Ms. Myles is hogging the screen while the real […]

The new Transformers 4 trailer is F***ing with me.

The new trailer for TF4 has hit the electric internet and gives us more of an idea as to what the story is. Transformers are in exile, the government is building/salvaging TFs for their own use, and oh BTW Dinobots. The opening scenes show us that Marky Funkabunch is a good ol’ boy, a hard […]

The last thing I wanted to do was show you the trailer for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction

You guys know. You saw the Super Bowl, or know someone that saw the Super Bowl. You go to the websites that post all of the ads days beforehand. Sill, it’s my job as the resident Transformers geek to put this up for review, discussion and analysis. We’ve seen the spy photos from toy shows. […]

Man with ability to read my thoughts tries to clobber Michael Bay

The Hong Kong leg of shooting for Transformers 4 is underway and the action is even more over-the-top. News reports say an unknown person – not involved with the production – heaved an air conditioner at Michael Bay’s noggin. The Sultan of  ‘Splodin’ is apparently OK, and richer by one air conditioner. The similarity of […]

Good news, bad news Detroit…

It’s been all bad news for Detroit recently, but here’s the good news: Michael Bay has brought filming for Transformers 4 to a city that needs all the income it can get!  More bad news people of Detroit? The Bayster saw your city as a good place to get his kicks dressing it up like […]

The best thing about the Bay ‘Transformer’ films

While I despise what Michael Bay has done with the Transformers films, there are a few good side effects thank to their success. Hasbro makes money selling toys, so fans get lots of new merchandise. Awareness of the brand & characters is high, so we’ll continue getting Transformers fiction for the foreseeable future. Best of […]

Big Question Mark TF4 Casting News

I seem to be reporting every warm body that gets cast in the upcoming Michael Bay Blockbuster/Fart in Church, so here’s one that should bring on the facepalms. Li Bingbing has been cast in Transformers 4. Everyone should be familiar with her groundbreaking work in Resident Evil: Retribution, where Ms. Bingbing was famously dubbed by […]
