Michael Bay’s Transformers movies are almost universally considered to be horrible, but even the haters can admit the cars that become the robots are stunning. And now, you can actually own two of the best.
Oh man. This is one big baby. The Liebherr T 282 is one of the largest haul trucks in the world (it has the 2nd largest haul truck payload capacity) and it’s assembly process is so impressive that I would totally believe it if each one of these bad boys were Transformers that we’ve created and didn’t want to tell…
Last week I wrote about Woobots, the wooden robots that transform into wooden vehicles, currently the focus of a successful Kickstarter campaign. This week I play with them.
The Singularity is coming soon! Artificial intelligences will reinvent everything, and there will be unlimited rice pudding. Except, of course, that when we imagine artificial intelligences in fiction, they’re often not that smart. Case in point? These 10 ridiculously dumb artificial intelligences.
Young people, right? They like young-people shit, like YouTube videos, Instagram selfies and crazy hair. If you hate young people but want to pander to them for some reason—like, if you have loathsome, foul-smelling stepchildren—you can always take them to see Jem and the Holograms.
Sentinel Prime, the Autobot head honcho before Optimus, usually transforms into a big ol’ Cybertronian truck when in vehicle mode: but not the new Sentinel. He turns into two vehicles: one of which is a big, weapon-packed space train to the cosmos.
Play features were all the rage with the Transformers toys when they first released—anything and everything to gets kids begging to buy the new mini-Transformer that transforms into something for an even bigger Transformer. Now one of those beloved action features is making a comeback in the next wave of Transfomers!
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.
ACGHK 2015 took place over the weekend, and the best and brightest of the Asian Toy scene were out in full force, showing off their coolest products and teasing some new ones. Here’s the very best of what’s was on the show floor in Hong Kong!
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 you’re looking for a difficult challenge in life, try building a perpetual motion machine. But if you want an impossible challenge, try assembling one of these intricate laser-cut metal puzzles that are now available in Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Bumblebee versions.
Remember when cheap laptops were crap? Not anymore—because you can buy this amazing new transforming Asus Chromebook for just $280. Oh, and did I mention it’s the first Chromebook that doubles as a tablet?
Here’s our first look at the toy version of Victorion, the first all-female Transformers combiner. Fans voted on her name, gender, modes...color scheme. Maybe this fan voting thing isn’t so great after all.
Hasbro’s Comic-Con breakfast has arrived, and with it, a plethora of new toys to gawp at. The company has unveiled some brand new figures in both its Marvel and Transformers lines, while they’re all pretty smashing, the best news of all is that the fabulous Spider-Gwen is getting her own toy!
Remakes are supposed to be worse than the originals, right? Isn’t that the general rule of thumb that Hollywood has taught us? So how on earth did Hasbro’s new Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator set actually turn out to be better than the original version many of us lusted over as kids?
People always ask me which laptop to buy. They want it all—a powerful processor, long battery life, lots of storage, and yes, a fancy way to transform into a touchscreen tablet. And they want it for $400. Usually, I convince them to buy an $800 laptop instead. But what if you’re truly strapped for cash? How close can…
The KRE-O building toys are Hasbro’s answer to Lego, but with retro properties like G.I. Joe and Transformers at their disposal, they’re even more effective at luring in nostalgia seekers. So following up on last year’s San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Class of 1984 set of KREON figures, Hasbro is returning to SDCC this…
When Hasbro’s team of all-female Transformers arrives (and sends irrational people everywhere into conniptions about gender roles in Cybertronian society), they won’t just be hitting the comics: Hasbro has announced a second Transformers exclusive toy for San Diego Comic Con, and it’s all about the ladies.
