And now, for a barrage of Transformer pr0n. No, not tranny pr0n, thank goodness.
This is the closest I’ll ever get to a car blog. The Toyota Supra actually lights up!
No, this is not a Transformer Alternator – in fact, it is a knock-off.
Roadbot transforms like Transformers Alternator Tracks, but without the horribly tight leg pegs. The rear booster bit is now detachable, making transforming a lot easier.
Another innovation would be how the lights from the engine can then be reused on the weapon, to light up the side boosters!
He doesn’t have a bonnet that splits in the middle; instead, they made him a shield. So much cleverer.
And now, for a real Transformer Alternator – Optimus Prime, a Dodge Ram pickup truck.
Blue, red and badass. (Okay, just imagine that his rifle is a sawed-off shotgun instead.)
And here he is, with Sideswipe the Dodge Viper and Windcharger the Honda S2000.
Bluestreak the rally Subaru Impreza, with Tracks (that clunky Chevy Corvette) and Skids the majorly pimpin’ Toyota Scion xB.
Juveniles versus the authority: From left, Grimlock the Ford Mustang GT, Meister the Mazda RX-8, Prowl the American Acura RSX (Honda Integra for the rest of the world) and Hound the Jeep Wrangler.
Here, Optimus is pictured in scale to Skids (left), Hound (right) and Grimlock (in front).
The Dodge SRT-10 family.
The Honda family.
“Autobots, roll out.”
And now, Roadbot makes a guest appearance. Yep, he’s a clunker at 1:18 scale (the Alternators are 1:24 only.)
I intentionally omitted Transformers Alternator Silverstreak in favor of Transformers Binaltech Smokescreen for the photoshoot.
But that’s not all! I only bought one Transformers Cybertron figure and one Transformers Galaxy Force figure because I was collecting motorcycles, but I broke that by getting this major pimpin’ muscle car.
Pimp my ride.
Left: Transformers Cybertron Downshift. Right: Transformers Energon Powerlink Downshift.
Yes, he does look quite like Wheeljack of yore.
He’s smaller, but he’s finally got leg articulation (the older Downshift on the right couldn’t bend at the waist!)
Okay, that’s it. Really.
