These two T-Shirts featuring a Steam Punk Optimus Prime and a Steam Punk Soundwave are pretty cool, I especially love Optimus’ top hat and the fact that it looks like Soundwave transforms into a music box. They are both available from We Love Fine for $25 each… Maybe next month…
I don’t often admit to this, but a very long time ago (20 years if not more) I tried to become a wargamer… I say tried because it never happened, I bought a lot of miniatures then discovered that when you live in Saudi Arabia there aren’t very many places to actually wargame.
Anyway, that and the fact that this is a Transformers themed custom miniature are just two of the many reasons I find this piece by “madscuzzy” (Deviant Art Page) awesome, the other reasons mainly have to do with the fact that it is in fact actually awesome…
You can read a full interview with the creator over at Tabeltop Geeks, I’m not going to replicate that here. They also have in progress images of the piece.
On a slight tangent, many many years ago one of my many internet handles was Skuzzy so in a parallel universe you could be reading this on Skuzzy.net…
This hat is available by BeeBeeKins on Etsy, it reminds me a little of MegaMan Helmets I posted a while back, but it’s by someone completely different, and while MegaMan is cool Optimus Prime is awesome!
One of the most iconic scenes of the original Transformers TV show was the battle between Optimus Prime and Megatron on top of the Hoover Dam. Artist NinjaInk whose work I’ve posted here before has recreated this scene by replacing the main characters with samurai armour.
You can buy this T-Shirt from RedBubble for £16. This isn’t the first time I’ve posted a Transformers Samurai crossover, although the style here is completely different to the one in the image I posted by creatureBox.
Update: I should have skimmed through NinjaInks gallery before posting this, I’ve found a similar image with Snake Eyes and whoever the white ninja in Cobra was from G.I.Joe/Action Force:
This image by clu-art shows Optimus Prime as a Green Lantern, I’m going to admit my knowledge of the Green Lantern mythos is not what it could be, but I think I’m right in thinking that the Green Lantern Corps. have members from hundreds of planets protecting the galaxy from whatever it is the Green Lantern Corps. fight (Probably Red Lanterns or something like that, didn’t guy Gardener become a yellow lantern, or something like that?).
There is no reason why there couldn’t be a Cybertronian Green Lantern and who better than Optimus Prime?
The same guy who did the M.A.S.K. Lego figurines has also unsurprisingly done a set of Transformers Lego Models as evidenced above the the Optimus Prime model, which actually transforms! He’s also done a Masters of the Universe set which I can’t be bothered blogging about separately. Look a distraction!
In a vain attempt to reassert my manliness after all that Disney, here is a picture of a Truck… Oh wait it’s Optimus Prime and what a pretty sun set… No! MUST BE MANLY RARRR! (That was my “Man Roar” what do you think?)
The image is by NinjaInk who I’ve featured here before and will probably feature here again…
Wow, at first glance I’ll have to admit I thought this was an Optimus Prime/Knight Sabre Cross over (I’ll have to Google to see if that exists later) but no it’s an Optimus Prime/Samus Arran cross over.
The Japanese says Metoroido Puraimu (Metroid Prime).
The Image is by *ninjaink and is called Metroid Prime over at Deviant Art. I’ve got a few more images in my drafts by *ninjaink that I want to post, unfortunately I don’t have the time to sift thought them now and add them to this post.
It always amuses me when I see something on a website and I find out that the person that created it is someone I know, this Vitruvian Optimus Prime was created by Barry Neeson and is available on RedBubble for just £17.24.

Keeping with the Vitruvian theme is this Vitruvian Inpector Gadget image which is available as a T-Shirt over on Threadless.
You may have noticed I like crossover art, I also like Transformers and Ninja Turtles, and I like this image of Krang taking control of Optimus Prime by artist Marco D’Alfonso as well as his Mega Man/ Mario Crossover pictured bellow. It’s actually worth looking at his Deviant Art page he has a hell of a lot of cross over art there.
