Man’s Own Creation! Can He Control Machines That Produce People?

OK. This movie had a direct influence on my Neo-human story, Synthetic, Electric Romance.

Space Pirate Captain Harlock‘s, space battleship Arcadia. There are a few variations on it. One is blue without the skull and crossbones, and another has a huge blade under the prow.

This is what I kind of like my space ships to look like.

From Megan Fox‘s Facebook Page:

In what is sure to be the pinnacle of my career in terms of my own
overjoyed fangirlness…behold the trailer for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES. Go Ninja Go Ninja GO!

So, Transfans are just like Trekkies. Everything is always wrong, with whatever incarnation happens to be current of whatever show/movie/character they happen to like.

Well. At least Geekdom is consistent in its schizophrenia.

A few thoughts. Of course I loved Generation One Transformers, though in retrospect there’s a whole lot of silly in it. Some of that has to do with the era in which it…

The Ghost Of Optimus Prime…

The Ghost Of Optimus Prime…

So, are we to infer that the new series will simply be titled: Transformers? Note, the original series was titled THE Transformers – Which actually is a fact I’d forgotten, having always simply referred to it as  Transformers.

Looks like the action will take place mainly on Cybertron.

Ah yes, anyone who has seen Predacons Rising, the series ending of Transformers: Prime is aware that Optimussa…

Theimpending threat.

These guys don’t make an appearance for some time yet in the Neo-human series… Well, OK that’s not strictly true. I think (THINK!) we might run across one in the follow-up story to Synthetic, Electric Romance— But at this stage I am really just contemplating the details of that story and all I know for sure is that it takes place on a starliner, and that there is a good…
