Transformers fans - WATCH THIS

Keith Loh sent this to me. As an original Transformers fan, it made my day. Even if you didn't watch the show as a kid, the CG is great. Just a 30 second TV commercial.

The Transformers were after my time, but this is a delightful spot.

What really makes it great is the camera work ("spontaneous" zoom shifts, as if they were shooting an irrepressible dancer on a rooftop) & the editing, like a hastily assembled music video. I love how sunlight kicked off the chrome in ways a more careful "shoot" might have avoided.

Who knew a Citroen could have such 'tude?

I love Transformers...hope the upcoming feature film, being assembled by Don Murphy, turns out well. Hopefully we can expect some CGI even better than this.

I keep watching it over and over. It's impressive. They should get an award for this one.

If anyone wants more information about the effects studio that worked on this spot, their web page is:

They've got some other real nice composites on their site.

I have a TF collection of about 200-300 pieces, mostly 1st gen. I don't collect anymore though. I should probably put most of it on Ebay and buy a new car with the money.

Seen the dancing Soundwave before, but it's still a great clip.

Just got a Nemesis Prime from Target for $14 (it's a "dark" repaint of Big Prime from BW Neo).

Man, have you guys seen the Alternators line. They got me back into the fandom big time.

Swing by Tfans for a great TF message board, or Tformers for TF news.

Here's the most pertinent link for this message board. A direct link to Tformers 2006 live action Movie news

Meh, I wasn't in it for the money. I don't collect re-releases, just isn't the same. Anything after I think year 4 didn't interest me much, mostly just the stuff from the time period I had them for as a kid.
I worked briefly for Mainframe in the late '90's while they were producing Beast Wars. Still, the Beast Wars series didn't interest me either. While robotic animals, like in the original series were cool, the natural organic ones did nothing for me. I did watch a bit of the show though.

I'll probably display my favorite 40, and put the rest in long term storage so my kids can one day sell them to a pawn shop for booze money.
