One of the main complaints (amongst many) about the series of Transformers movies by Michael Bay is that robots in disguise featured in them look nothing like the Transformers we know and love. Of course by that we mean that Bay’s VFX team took a significant departure in the look and style of all the assorted Autobots and Decepticons, so much so that they got their own name, “Bay-formers.” So a lot of you have been missing those good old days from the 80s, and someone has heard your call, and they work in the video game industry. If you’re looking for a taste of the old school then Platinum Games has a surprise for you this fall, and this your first look. (more…)
When I die I want my eulogy to be read by Peter Cullen. Cullen being the original voice of Optimus Prime has one of the best most recognizable voices in all of cartoon history. He could read the phone book and I would by that shit. Also I want him to be my grandpa. Goddamn I am easily side tracked, which could be due, in part to the illicit activities I participate in. Oooh Cupcakes!
Let’s try this again..
Peter Cullen the voice of Optimus Prime in the 1980’s series as well as the movies and Frank Welker the voice of Megatron from the 1980’s cartoon are reuniting for the first time since 1986 for the Hasboro Transformer series, That will be premiering later this year, October 10th to be precise.The show is titled Transformers; Prime . Neato! We certainly will be looking forward to it, how about you? It’s strange in everything I always seem to identify with the bad guy..the dark side if you will, but Transformers is the ONLY series where I’ve wanted to be the good guy. AUTOBOTS ROLL OUT!
