As if Christian Koenigsegg’s cars weren’t cool enough already, he’s now making robot cars way cooler than Michael Bay ever could.
Having your parents throw an awesome Transformers-themed party for your sixth birthday is one thing. But having your dad make a talking Optimus Prime cake that actually transforms? That’s a birthday you’re never, ever going to forget.
Half of me wants to believe that this amazing Lego version of Optimus Prime (the Michael Bay movie version) that can actually transform into a robot is legit. But the other half of me is having a hard time believing that Ralph Savelsberg didn’t just hire Industrial Light & Magic to help fake these photos with CG.
If a transforming robot is cooler than a regular robot, then what’s cooler than a transforming robot? Why, a bunch of transforming robots that combine together to form one giant robot! So how can we make that happen, and if so, what would happen?
“All I want to do/is see six robots turn into/a giant woman.” Hasbro’s Fan Built Combiner poll culminates in the creation of Victorion, the most together combiner team Transformers has ever seen.
While director Michael Bay might not be known in film circles for his nuance or profound cinematic leaps forward, one thing is undeniable: his films resonate. Transformers grossed $319 million, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen grossed over $400 million and was second only to Avatar in box office gross for 2009.…
This video is fascinating because it let's us pretend to be a fly on the wall of a Porsche 911 engine assembly line. There's no annoying soundtrack, no voiceover explaining what's happening, we're just seeing humans and machines teaming up to create beautiful, powerful engines that purr the best cars.
Because they've just taken out an ad asking the Academy to consider the movie about giant robots blowin' shit up for Best Picture, as well as pretty much every other available Oscar. Transformers 4 was the least egregiously awful movie in the franchise, but does that achievement make it Oscar-worthy? I say thee nay.
Local Motors marketing guy Buddy Crisp pulled off a great get convincing Michael Bay and friends to put the Rally Fighter off-roader in Transformers 4: My Big Fat Robot Wedding Strikes Back. Here's what Crisp had to say about his car starring in the (second?) most successful film franchise based on a toy.
Did you watch Michael Bay's newest cinematic aberration this weekend and come away confused? Our patented Spoiler FAQ has the answers to every question you have about the Transformers: Age Of Extinction! (Yes, including the one about statutory rape, since Michael Bay decided to bring it up.)
I love Transformers. I don't mean the toys, the cartoons, the comics, any of that stuff. I mean the new Transformers, the Michael Bay Transformers.
I'm guessing Optimus Prime has just fired his lousy accountant, because even though he has a new movie about to come out, regular unwashed bastards like you and me can ride in Optimus Prime (in semi truck cab form) by simply hailing him through Uber. Well, so long as you're in one of these three cities.
Chevrolet is leaning hard on product placement in Transformers 4: Age Of Extinction to get the Chinese market fired up about their product. But it's not the Camaro they're expecting to get the most mileage out of; it's their new micro SUV the Trax.
Most Transformers are terrible, because they're really great, but then they're not real, because they're a cartoon, or a toy, or components of a Michael Bay film made entirely to sell toys. But this transforming busker that actually drives around is the best Transformer ever, because it brings Transformers to life.
The Bagger 288 is not only one of the largest earthmovers in the world, it's one of the largest land vehicles anywhere, full stop. And now someone has turned the 13,000-ton coal-chewing crawling beast into a fire-spitting stomping Transformer. Because why the hell not.
There are worse ways to kill two hours on an airplane flight than by firing up one of Michael Bay's Transformers movies. There are also better ways, like reading, but whatever. The films never disappoint when it comes to cars and explosions.
