How did you spend the last 2 months? Well, Youtuber Counter656 spent them painstakingly piecing together around 3500 still images in order to create this extended chase sequence between Bumblebee and Barricade.

Yes, they’re the Michael Bay versions of the characters but to be fair, I’m not sure the action figure of the ‘proper’ Bumblebee is quite so poseable as this one.

Great vid.

Megatron’s Epic Meal Time!

Citizens of the Internet will already be aware of the glorious absurdity that is Epic Meal Time. Now thanks to animator, Dr Smoov the Decepticons have been able to get in on the epic meal time action. Megatron, Mixmaster and Soundwave are mixing up the ultimate Energon cube and you better believe that there’s booze involved.

Epic.

If Michael Bay Made Angry Birds…

The folks over at Rooster Teeth have been internet heroes for years thanks to their Halo parody series, Red vs Blue (which is now in it’s 9th season! Blimey). This month however they’ve taken a break from Spartans to bring us a trailer for a very special film. Given all the Transformers buzz about at the moment, I felt it was appropriate to do some sharesies with it. The last line of the film made me pretty much fall off my chair with laughter.

I was just on the phone to Steve for about an hour. We’ve got so much cool stuff going on behind the scenes here which I really wish I could talk about. All in good time though. I’ve been getting a little R&R time in this weekend in the wake of the Launch Party to end all Launch Parties. As you can tell by the use of the phrase “R&R” some of that time has been spent watching bad cop films. Really bad cop films.

By the way, scanning stuff for a wedding gift list is exactly like being James Bond and don’t let anybody ever tell you different.

I had the original Return of Optimus Prime on VHS when I was ten and it made me happier than a kid with hands made of cake. In this vid, Prime returns from the dead to discover that one or two things have changed…

Tomorrow: Bears!
