More Than Meets The Eye: Transformers 2 (and now 3)

Post by Patrick on Fri Feb 27, 2009 11:20 am

This is actually news that's a couple of weeks old. At the Chicago Auto Show in January, a number of new vehicles which will be featured in Transformers 2 were revealed. Here's a report on "Sideswipe", a Corvette Stingray concept designed specifically for the movie. It's apparently not going to produced for market.





That split rear window is an idea borrowed from the 1963 Corvette coupe design.

Well, you all know my fondness for Corvettes. Suddenly, I'm quite interested in seeing this movie.

That is a very attractive piece of automotive engineering. However, I am not that keen on the colour, all it needs is a red light going from side to side and it could easily be a prototype Cylon heavy raider.

Nice looking ride. Very Happy I agree about the color though, I'd prefer black.

Couldn't agree with you more, Zoltar.

It's only a toy?! How do they expect us to drive it? Razz

Can't we enlarge the car instead? I'm having visions of being pursued by a giant spider on blue screen or something similar.

The thing about boys
Is they like their toys
Oh, yes, it's true,
Ms. Lucy McGough

They like the lights, they like the noise
They like the spinny, light-up things in their toys
They like the ones that go pop, bang, flash, boom
And they like the ones that go vroom, vroom, vroom, vroom

Boys are intrigued by these flashy things
Because to boys, it's like a music that sings
It draws them to see, to hear, to touch
Suffice it to say, toys effect boys that much

Do not despair, Lucy, my dear
For your understanding of boys is really quite near
We boys are really quite simple to please
Gadgets with lights and noise will always appease

So do not make fun when see a boy with his toy
These flashing loud objects fill us with joy
It's harmless, it's fun, and yes, childish it may be
But that's just in the nature of boys, you see.
Smile

Cars. They have wheels. It's their only use...well, apart from if you're rich enough to be able to afford to use one as a draught excluder, of course.

So Transformers 2 has been out for a week now. Has anyone seen it yet?

For the benefit of those that have not, we should probably conduct discussions about the story line in spoiler tags.

Good to see his latest retirement didn't last long. Very Happy

Indeed. Nimoy's career has had more resurrections than Captain Jack Harkness!
