Neil Armstrong Begs to Differ

The distance Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin traveled on the moon belies the immensity of their feat, as NPR correspondent Robert Krulwich discovered last week when blogging about scale in the news. In truth, the scale of their accomplishment is so off the charts, it can only fuel our fantasiesnot to mention those of Michael Bay.

Transformers: The Boring Version

Megatron, such a naughty transformer. I wonder if Michael Bay director of the Transformers Saga would be up to the challenge of creating a literal Transformers movie. Come on, man, there’s definitely an opportunity for some major sparks and explosions, perhaps even some light electrocution. This version of Transformers might not be quite as exciting as the real deal, but ...

Stained Glass Transformers

Finally, my plans to break ground on the First Church of Optimus Prime can commence! These stained glass Transformer pieces transform (no pun intended, honestly, that would be inexcusable) any room’s fixtures from boring to geektastic. AutobotWonko created these gorgeous stained glass pieces inspired by everyone’s favorite robots in disguise. Ok, since we’re on the topic of 80’s cartoons, what ...

Transformers All Spark Xbox 360 Mod

Ya know, Transformers don’t just spring into action for the hell of it. There is a rhyme and reason behind electronics magically becoming animated. And that rhyme and reason is the All Spark, a glyph-covered cube capable of instilling life in inanimate objects.

Ghetto Transformers: Cardboard in Disguise

These Ghetto Transformers costumes are made using cardboard boxes, paint and probably some paper mache. It’s all fun and games until it starts to rain. Soggy cardboard might be the least intimidating material ever. You can’t even give someone a paper cut with that shit. These costumes might work as a Halloween costume on a dry night, but for fighting ...

I’ve always wanted to own my own set of Transformers, but who has the room to fit an entire set of massive robots in their home, let alone a tiny apartment like mine. But hey, I can have something even cooler. My Transformers transform into individual LEGO bricks. All you have to do is bash them around a little and ...

Transformers Rubik’s Cube, Oddly Enough, Doesn’t Transform

What the hell is this? A Transformers toy that doesn’t transform? Alright then, let’s give it a shot. This will definitely be a first. Oh, wait, it’s supposed to be a mash-up with the All Spark Cube. It all makes sense now. Sorta. Come on, we need some transformation power, baby! Link [via]

Transforming Bumblebee Costume Really Transforms

None of this photo-trickery or CGI bullshit. This awesome Bumblebee costume is 100% the real deal. Watch for yourself, about halfway through the video, the costumed dude squats down and morphs into a fricken Chevy Camaro lookalike. I’m so finding a way to get a hold of this ensemble by Halloween.

Donald Duck Transformer

Disney has already scooped up Marvel and their massive catalog 5,000 comic book characters. But what if Disney moved onto greener pastures and started scooping up toy companies as well? If Hasbro was picked up by Disney, we might start seeing plenty of more toys like this. The Donald Duck Transformer is both nightmarish (as you contemplate the possible future) ...

Optimus Prime Ice Sculpture

Ice sculptures are the type of thing you imagine old men doing in small Alaskan towns. But apparently there are some aspiring ice sculptors who like to add a taste of geekery to their art. This Optimus Prime ice sculpture would be great for chilling a small swimming pool full of beer. Other than that, I don’t see much use ...
