Video: "Kung Fury" comedy-action-scifi movie online

in News

If you're a fan of 80's pop culture and nostalgia (a realm which "Transformers" firmly resides in) then you'll want to watch "Kung Fury"! This insane, silly and hilarious mash up of influences pays homage to 80's movies, video games and more! What does this have to do with "Transformers" you may ask? Just watch and you'll see at least one pretty obvious homage to the 80's obsession with transforming robots. Warning: The film does contain "horror movie" level violence and profanity.

Fan Art: Amazing customs by Zumaz Maximize including Dai Atlas!

Customizing action figures is a time honored art among action figure collectors, and Transformers are no exception. Over the last few years some very talented customizers have created incredible repaints and retools based on existing sculpts (see the work of Cheetimus for amazing stuff). Recently another customizer came onto my radar.

Toy News: Junkheap, Vehicon and High Octane Bumblebee found at Ross

This weekend various fans began reporting that some of the latter releases from "Age of Extinction" began to make their way to Ross stores! These include Junkheap, based on the garbage truck seen in the film, Vehicon (based on the vehicles used by Cemetary Wind) and High Octane Bumblebee (based on Bumblebee's retro look in the film). Up until recently these figures had only seen release in certain markets such as Hong Kong.

Toy News: New "Transformers Adventure" photos including Lockdown and the Insecticons

TF Yuki is at it again! It appears the Takara offices have received a new batch of "Transformers Adventure" packaged samples and he has shared a bunch of new photos including an army of Insecticons, Lockdown in package and One Step Changer Bumblebee. The Bumblebee is really quite a dramatic departure from his US counterpart, showing of a ton more paint applications than his "Robots in Disguise" release. The Insecticons sport the "Adventure" symbols on their chests while Lockdown gets a box instead of a card due to his size.
