Father Of The Year Builds Life-Sized Transformer For His Son And Is Working On A Second

Bumblebee01

When you get right down to it, it's not that unusual for kids who see one of the Transformers movies to tell their parents that they want a giant robot of their own. I mean, I don't want to blow anybody's mind here, but that's kind of the point of the entire franchise, to get those impressionable youngsters into toy stores so they can go home with their own Optimus Prime or Megatron. But for one child in China, a toy wasn't going to do it. He wanted the real deal. So his father built him one.

After catching the Transformers movie with his son in August of 2014, Wang Liansheng spent a year building a life-size version of Bumblebee out of discarded auto parts --- and now he's working on Optimus Prime.

The Transformed Man, Act 13: Dark Prelude

Transformers: Dark Prelude, IDW

I've never liked the Transformers. The franchise didn't get its hooks into me as a kid, and while I've tried to give it a shot as an adult, it never really clicked. But now, with a recommendation from almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale that left me with three years worth (and counting) of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics, I'm going on a quest to see if these comics can turn me from someone who has never cared at all about Optimus Prime into someone who uses words like "Cybertron" and "alt-mode" with alarming regularity. And Primus help me, it's working.

This week, it's the last stop before Dark Cybertron as Swerve continues to be better than everyone.

The Transformed Man, Act 5: Interference Patterns

Transformers: Robots In Disguise vol. 2

I’ve never liked the Transformers. The franchise never really got its hooks into me when I was a kid, and while I’ve tried to give it a shot as an adult, it’s never really clicked. But now, with the recommendations of almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale, I’ve found myself in possession of three years worth (and counting) of IDW’s More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics. I’m working my way through a story arc every week, and if I have to read about these robots, you’re coming with me.

This week, the Decepticons have a time machine. So, you know. That's not good.

This week, the Cybertronian Provisional Government gears up to rebuild society. So basically it's House of Cards if Kevin Spacey could turn into a truck.

Warriors Seek Answers In ‘Transformers: Robots In Disguise’ #14 [Preview]

tfrid-014-pr-main

When more casual Transformers fans think of Prowl, a loyal police car 'bot with shoulder-mounted cannons usually comes to mind. So you can imagine my surprise when I cracked open a first-look at IDW's Transformers: Robots in Disguis

A number of awesome packages come off the mail truck at the ComicsAlliance team's respective headquarters, but Hasbro's Transformers: Dark of the Moon (in theaters today) press kit is the first I've gotten that actually was a truck -- or a truck's trailer, at least. Optimus Prime's trailer
