Transformers are, according to TFWiki.net, a species of sentient, living robotic beings. In other words, they are are living things, just like you and me. This brings us to this question: as sentient beings, do they do ever need to read time, or does the onboard computer already have that taken care of? I guess we will never know and a collaboration with G-Shock and toy maker of Transformers, Takara Tomy, only serves to deepen this mystery. Continue reading G-Shock x Transformers Comes With A Transformable Optimus Watch Holder
Almost 4 years ago, we were thrilled by J-Deite when it unveiled a scale car that was able to transform into a robot and vice versa. What made J-Deite Quarter, as it was called, unique was, it is actually mobile like a real car and it was able to walk as a biped machine when in robot form. The goal was to create a full-size model by 2020. Fast forward to today, it looks like the folks behind it, Brave Robotics and Asratec, are on track to realizing this dream. Continue reading J-Deite Unveiled Full-size, Drivable And Walkable Transformers Robot
If you really think about it. Transformers’ Optimus Prime is kind of lame. I mean, he is the leader of the Autobot, but look at him. He is only but a prime mover, AKA semi, which is hardly intimidating, really. A Filipino-American artist, Don Figueroa, probably thought the same when he reimagined Optimus Prime into a Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime for a Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover comic. Not only Don’s Prime won’t be so lame, it will now strike fear in his enemies both as a robot and as a vehicle. Man, look at those weapon system! Who needs to throw punches anymore? Continue reading Custom LEGO Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime Needs To Be A LEGO Set Now!
So, you think transforming Transformers toys are cool? Wait till you see one that transforms without you manually going through 15 head-scratching steps to turn from a vehicle to a robot and vice versa. Apparently, a Beijing-based robotic/toy company called Senpower has developed R/C Transformers toys that can transform themselves. Yup. You heard that right. Automatic transforming Transformers. Sounds like a gargantuan task, you say? But really it is not. Already there are folks who make real car transforms into a robot, I am sure toys are totally doable too.

If you visit Asia, you find a lot of interesting knock off toys and among them, was an interesting take of Transformers. Usually it comes as a battery-operated toy car that transforms into a rolling robot at some point as it travel. It was based on this toy which he came across during a visit to Singapore, Gennadi Kocherga toyed with the idea of a real life robot-transforming car and as you can see, you can’t say he did not succeed. Gennadi worked with his son to turn an infamously lacklustre Russian-made LADA VAZ-2110 into one that transforms into a robot while still remain drivable. I bet you will never look at a LADA the same way again. Continue reading Father And Son Turn A LADA Into A Transformers That Shoots Real Guns
Yes. There is a ‘transforming’ Xiaomi tablet, but it is not kind of transformer tablet you may have imagined. It’s a toy, which is what makes it so interesting. Seriously, I don’t know how we managed to miss this exciting news when it was out last year. But hey, you know what they say? It’s better late than never. Anyways, last year, U.S. toy giant Hasbro and China handset maker Xiaomi jointly released a toy inspired by the iconic Decepticon robot, Soundwave, from the Transformers franchise. Kids of the eighties will remember Soundwave as the robot that masquerade as a cassette tape recorder that commands a bunch of cassette tape robot minions.
