Transformers' 30th Birthday Extravaganza

So it’s about time I kicked myself into gear as a Community Manager and got you all involved in something here on PixlBit. I’ve been working on things in the background, but so far it’s been a bit hush-hush until November or December comes around. But in the meantime, something else has been brought to my attention; next week is the 30th anniversary of Transformers!

I can’t say that I will be doing much, because I honestly don’t know that much about Transformers. But the lack of knowledge can possibly be my strong point! Perhaps I’ll look into doing a Let’s Play of one of the Cybertron games (Suggestions anyone?). Or perhaps I’ll just work on a couple of pieces and blogs in regards to my memories of Transformers as a whole.

Needless to say though, my impotence in the world of Transformers is where I need you all to help out. I can’t do this by myself, so I would love for you all to help out in any way possible! Write a blog about Transformers as a whole or about a particular Transformer that really tickles your fancy in all the right ways! Maybe upload a picture of your old school Transformers toys that you have stashed away in your attic? Maybe you want to draw some awesome fan-art and upload it for us all to see? Do you have a capture card? Well, you should look into uploading some gameplay footage! Or even if you don’t know a thing about Transformers (much like myself), then you could simply write a blog about how you wish you knew about Transformers.

Just remember to use the tag #Transformers so we can compile everything into a massive piece dedicated to a franchise loved by so many people.

You can opt in or opt out bud, no pressure!

This is probably a perfect opportunity to pull out my copy of Transformer:  The Movie.

Make sure it's the Australian version with BOTH dirty words in it.


09/16/2013 at 03:52 PM

Hold it...  There is more than one dirty word?

Yes! It's the version I saw in the theater.

Eight year old me thought it was awesome!

I love the Transformers, they are pretty awesome and glad the idea did get a greenlight. Looking forward to seeing some of the TF blogs here. Question, how do you tag blogs? do you just add the # at the end of the blog or is there an option for that cause I haven't seen it.

As for the games, War for Cybertron is pretty good, I'll play with you if you have/get it on the PS3. I call dibs on Optimus Prime though lol

I grew up with the cartoon's in the 80's, but I have to say that G.I. Joe was more my favorite show. I didn't care at all for the recent films, but I am excited to see what the "Dino-Bots" will look like in the new movie. Assuming rumors are true about them being featured in the next film. Dino-Bots were my favorite transformers. I actually liked the Beast Wars CGI cartoons that were made not too long ago as well. That's it from me.

Sounds like I'm in the same boat as you, Chris. I watched the Beast Wars cartoon a few times back in the '90s and I've seen the first movie but that's it lol

I was pretty big into Transformers for a couple of years as a kid.

I recommend trying the Fall of Cybertron game that came out last year.  It was one of my favorite games of 2012, surprisingly.

Well, I missed out on the cartoons in the '80s (I wasn't living yet). I've seen the three movies (terrible, that's all I have to say). I can't contribute much, maybe some art, but that's all I could do. Can't wait to see what everyone does though!

I guesse its up to us old timers to enlighten the youth here on the wonder and glory of all things cybertronian. I have been a fan since I was 5 years old when they first came out. I've been looking for something new to write about, hope I can offer a worthy contribution to this project.

This. Watching the pilot of the original cartoon is my first memory. Time to bring the knowledge, Gemini!

Nerds Without Pants Episode 168: 2019- At Least the Games Didn't Suck

Welcome to the first episode of Nerds Without Pants recorded in 2020! That’s right, we’re back from hiatus and we have a ton of things to say about our favorite games that we played in 2019. There are some obvious games, some shockers, and some games that definitely didn’t come out last year. So, pretty par for the NWP course, eh?
