This is not a screenshot. It is not a piece of two dimensional fan art. This is a fan-modded Optimus Prime action figure. Seriously.
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.
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.
Sure, they may be made out of of re-purposed bits of scrap metal, but I'm willing to say this Optimus Prime looks way cooler than what we got in Michael Bay's Transformers films.
Well, just his upper torso and head, but even then, this thing is humongous.
The only thing harder than trying to convince my parents to buy me a toy robot when I was a kid? Trying to convince them to buy me five toy robots that formed a bigger one. With the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars toy line I finally have my Superion. Well, mostly.
Lego enthusiast Angus MacLane might be more known for his lovely Cube Dude creations, but when he's not building those blocky designs, he's still making awesome Lego goodness, like this super-deformed Optimus Prime.
I mean, why be a truck when you could be one of the coolest video game consoles ever? Smart choice, Optimus.
This edible Optimus Prime is made of 700-800 individual pieces of gingerbread. And it doesn't just look impressive—it also won its maker, artist Caroline Eriksson, a huge cash prize.
Mark Wahlberg, the white guy in the obligatory Transformer's lead leather jacket, some sort of fashion model and Optimus Prime join together on the cover of Empire Magazine's latest issue. What does a giant alien robot with awesome strength need with a sword? Your guess is as good as mine.
This (admittedly fuzzy) picture comes from an unknown trade show, where toy companies like Hasbro ignore movie spoilers in hopes of inspiring buyers to carry their merchandise. And what could be a more inspiring site than a sword-wielding Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots, riding Grimlock in his dinosaur mode into…
Did you believe Michael Bay when he said Transformers 4 would star "brand new, re-envisioned and remodeled Autobots"? Did you think that perhaps the Transformers would return in some way to the iconic designs of your youth? Did you think Bay might at least drop Optimus' flame decals, the truck equivalent of tribal…
It was also made in eight months! That's how long artist Robert Burden — whose amazing, intricate painting of classic toys are always wonderful to behold — took to create this giant masterpiece of the Autobot leader.
Some days, you just feel like being a giant transforming robot, and other days, you feel like being a Dinobot. Fortunately, a cooler days, you can put on your Transformers sweatshirt, pull up the hood, and be the robot dinosaur you were meant to be.
Last night, comic author Brian Michael Bendis posted some heretofore obscure artwork by illustrator Phil Jimenez. This wasn't just any doodle — this was a concept sketch for a scuttled Justice League-meets-the-Transformers crossover series that Jimenez pitched with IDW Publishing editor Chris Ryall.
When NASA need a voice for their latest commercial — a voice that could instill dreams of outer space in our impressionable minds — who did they turn to? Transformers voice actor Peter Cullen, who lends a rich tone to the ad. The only problem is that every time he says "We are explorers," I think he's talking about…
Since early January, a crew at Hokkaido, Japan's Asahikawa Winter Festival has been carving out this 53-foot-tall bust of Optimus Prime peering over a wall. Given all that effort, it will be somewhat depressing to witness him inevitably transform into a grey puddle.
At a recent Nokia event in Hong Kong, Optimus Prime and Starscream showed up to impress telecommunication aficionados with their ability to become Power-Wheels-sized conveyances. Watch as these Transformers become robots only somewhat in disguise.
You don't really think of Optimus Prime as being much of a jokester, but he's actually quite funny in this exclusive clip from Saturday's new episode of Transformers Prime.
Transformers: Prime is the latest computer-animated incarnation of the long-running franchise, executive produced by the writers of the Transformers movies and reuniting the original voices of Optimus Prime and Megatron. After the show's initial five-part miniseries last year, Transformers Prime returns this Friday…
