As a follow up to the Transformers: Autobots Infographic posted last week, we have a new infographic detailing the Decepticons (cars and other land vehicles) from the original American Transformers Generation 1 cartoon, which aired from 1984 to 1987. I’ve been told that, as the series is from 1980s, not all of the art was readily available — thus, some artistic liberties were taken in order to represent as many Decepticons as possible while keeping as true to the spirit of the Generation 1 series as possible.

If I were the head of a big Hollywood visual effects studio, I would definitely hire 21-yo Alexander Vladimirovich Semenov. Check out his Transformers-inspired short, shot with a Canon 550D—with 18-55mm and 50mm lenses—and a Nikon D5000.

“I’d love to write a scene where Spock meets Optimus Prime,” Alex Kurtzman laughed. transformer_2

“I guess we did,” his partner Roberto Orci revealed, making reference to the “Transformers” character who uses TV and radio signals to speak. “Because at one point we have Bumblebee [in the new film] using audio from ‘Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan.’ “

It’s a sly follow-up to Bumblebee’s sampling of “Trek” actress Nichelle Nichols in the original “Transformers” film — and one of many pop-culture touchstones the duo had in mind while constructing the eagerly anticipated film.

[pics] New Terminator 4 Concept Images

via Latino Review



i09 has images of Terminator concept art for the new McG Terminator Salvation movie.

The images show giant Terminator T-600 robots and vehicles. The T-600 guy looks like he could double as an enemy in a Quake video game.

The Harvester robots are enormous. I wonder who would win in a fight between one of these guys and a Transformer? Actually, that conversation will have to wait for a time when I’m desperate for something to talk about if I ever go to a Nerdcon convention.
