Mark my words, you will never see a better version of Bumblebee cosplay at any convention anywhere even if it isn’t all that true to the source material.
Over on his DeviantArt page, Canadian artist Darren Rawlings has created what he thinks some of the most famous automobiles in TV history would look like as Transformers as part of his “If They Could Transform” gallery. The guy has done a helluva job with these and if there is any justice Hasbro and whoever owns these different TV show properties would get together and start pumping out toy versions of Rawlings Transformers. Check out some familiar wheels getting the “more than meets the eye” treatment after the cut.
Using a 3-D printer, a very enterprising designer was able to make a real life recreation of the above t-shirt image (if you have ever been to a Comic Con you have likely seen that t-shirt) into a fully functional Optimus Tardis/Tardis Prime action figure.

Feast your eyes on this amazing display of geeky couture…The Grimlock Hoodie!
For just $60 you too can run through he streets shouting: “Me, Grimlock, not nice dino. Me mash brains!” and not look too silly because now you will actually be dressed as Grimlock!
C’mon, people! It’s got little tiny T-Rex arms on the sleeves of the hoodie fer heaven’s sake. That attention to detail needs to be rewarded. Buy copious amounts of these things and hand them out as gifts.
Green Lantern Optimus Prime! Batman Transformer Armor! Wonder Woman’s Invisible Plane as a Transformer! Megatron vs Superman! Drawn by the phenomenal Phil Jiminez!
All of that awesomeness could have been in my grubby little hands except one of the braintrust running DC decided not to do it. To that person or persons I wish all manner of bad juju upon.
Unless of course they change their mind and re-greenlight this project. then I’ll be their bestest friend forever.
Click onward to see one of the coolest pieces of art you will ever see.
