Here's an Autobot City setup I did in my kitchen last year.

Awesome collection you've got there.  I'm rather jealous of all the G1 stuff (given my age, that's hardly surprising).

 

The "Bayformers" ones though, I'd toss in the trash. :p But then, I'm an old fart. ;)

I have some from before the film was released - I wish I had known beforehand. That man is systematically destroying my childhood.

Heh. When I saw Age of Extinction (I know, why punish myself more), I was thoroughly confused by everything.

 

I mean, seriously.. Nothing made ANY sense! At all!  Hell, we all know the animated movie was rather confusing in many places, but just because we saw the Quintisson's again, that's no reason ramp up the confusion by x100000!!

The movies are certainly one of the lesser quality franchises, but i wouldn't go as far as "destroying my childhood". It isn't like these guys are supposed to be the same ones as in G1, after all. I love exploring new versions of the characters and concepts - the idea of a TF multiverse.

 

Personally, IDW, which is actually supposed to be "G1", has a higher claim to childhood destruction than the movies. Heck, half the G1 remake toys we're getting these days are actually IDW instead! Hasbro should stick to new universe reinventions, and leave G1 in the 80s where it belongs. I love G1, I grew up on G1, and I consider Dreamwave and IDW insults to the real G1.

 

No G1 remake or continuation has ever been decent, and they should just focus on moving TFs forward rather than trying to recapture the past.

It was better than ROTF, at least. I thought there were some good ideas in the movie. They just needed someone more capable than Bay to realize the,.

At least ROTF seemed to follow on from the earlier Bayformers movies... AoE was just... random.

AOE actually did, though we're seeing things after a lot of changes in the situation. But those changes were the result of the events of DOTM.

 

My problem with ROTF is that the main focus was Sam's love life, rather than the robots. And the twins. and Devastator's balls. And Wheelie humping Mikayla's leg.

 

While AOE still had the `bots in the background a little too much, it was an improvement. But Bay still hasn't figured out that the Autobots are the main characters, not the humans.

Rather than comment further about why, I will let Scott Ramsoomair continue to explain my issues with Michael Bay's Bayformers:

and then he did Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Same methodology, similar result. If he gets the rights to ThunderCats, I might go live in a cave somewhere (and take some G1 figures with me).

The Rifftrax of TMNT suprisingly made it watchable. It actually had a few good moments, but nothing redeems their casting for April O`Neil. She's been a lab assistant, she's been a reporter. She's never been and should never be a skank.

      Niantic teams up with Hasbro to develop a Transformers AR game
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Niantic, the developer behind the smash-hit Augmented Reality (AR) game Pokemon GO is prepping to launch another high-profile title. Its latest project turns Hasbro's iconic Transformers franchise into a mobile AR experience.

      For the upcoming AR game dubbed Transformers: Heavy Metal, Niantic has handed off development duties to a Seattle-based studio Very Very Spaceship. Niantic's Executive Producer, Phil Hong, revealed that the Transformers game will be based on the company's Lightship platform. He further stated that the game will allow you to "team up with the likes of Bumblebee and the Autobots in the real world".

      As per the company, Lightship supports real-time mapping by combining neural networks with cell phone cameras. The platform can detect and interact with various objects, buildings, ground, and sky to deliver a convincing AR experience.



      If we can erase five Michael Bay movies from our memory, Transformers is one of the most beloved franchises from the 80s. According to Niantic, fans won't have to wait for too long as the game is set for a soft launch in select countries soon. It will be followed by a global rollout later this year. Fans can head over to TransformersHeavyMetal.com and pre-register for the game.

      Launched in 2016, Niantic's Pokemon GO was such a rage that robbers started using it to mug unsuspecting players. Many distracted people even got into serious accidents while catching virtual monsters. It will be interesting to see how the reception for Transformers: Heavy Metal will be.

      Teddy bear doctors finally have the AR tools they need with Parker the Bear
      by Richard Tyr Blewitt



      Parker the Bear is a new teddy bear from a company called Seedling. It can be paired up with an iOS device, allowing it to simulate various functions using augmented reality (AR).

      The bear itself has no batteries, no connectivity, and no cameras, so the AR is essentially run from the iOS device through the app. The bear does come with things like a miniature stethoscope and feeding spoon, the idea being that children will be able to scan Parker and examine its bones and body for ailments, for which they will be able to do various things to help with, like check its temperature, give it medicine, or feed it. The objective is for the child to be Parker's doctor and caretaker, while also learning by completing problems presented by the app.

      The teddy bear has a 'Happiness Factor' which goes up when the bear is cured but also when the child does things like take pictures of the bear to hang up in the bear's AR world. The progress made through these actions and the raising of the Happiness Factor will result in new objects and activities being unlocked for the child to enjoy with Parker.

      Parker is designed to teach basic biology, digital literacy, and critical thinking through some of the in-app problems but it also aims to nurture creativity by, for example, making the child design a bandage or create AR scenery for Parker's pictures.

      AR and VR systems are already being used quite extensively in design, as well as for mature games like Fallout 4, but here Seedling has managed to very neatly pair up a Victorian-era children's toy with one of the most recent technological innovations. The product is listed at $59.95 on the Apple Store; it will be interesting to see if Parker makes a significant impact on the age-old children's past time of playing doctor as well as on the life expectancy of teddy bears in general.

      CES 2017: Need some smart sex toys to track your orgasms? OhMiBod has you covered
      by Rich Woods

      We've all had that moment. You're walking through your local sex toy shop and you see something that piques your interest, only to learn that it doesn't have any kind of CPU or Bluetooth radio inside of it, immediately moving it from the 'that looks fantastic' category to the 'only a savage would use that' category.

      Ladies and gentlemen, introducing OhMiBod, which was showing off its line of smart sex toys and introducing a new SDK at CES 2017.

      One of the items is the Lovelife Krush. Kegel exercises are something that women can do to work on their PC muscle, which can become stretched after giving birth. According to OhMiBod, many women do these exercises improperly, so there's clearly room for technology here.

      Lovelife Krush The Lovelife Krush costs $149 and like all of the company's other products, you can purchase it from its website.

      Another one that OhMiBod was showing off was the Lovelife Please. Basically, it's a wearable vibrator that can be controlled by your - or your partner's - smartphone. The app even includes a dashboard to track your orgasms. After all, it's so 2016 to use a power button on your vibrator, and besides, sex toys are pretty much useless if you don't have a historical record of your orgasms.

      Lovelife Please But those are just two of a whole suite of sex toys that the company offers. Check out the gallery below for more of what OhMiBod had on display, or if you're interested, check out its website.
