A week ago we ran a competition to win a pretty friggen sweet Transformers pack, including Transformers: Fall of Cybertron for PlayStation 3 and Transformers: Generation One Remastered Season One on DVD. All you had to do was describe to us your own imaginative Transformer. And in the immoral words of Highlander, there can be only one.
That ‘one’ is S. Woodward of NSW, who delighted us with a peak into untold Transformers history, answering:
Poptimus Prime, Optimus’s Grandfather. He will always be the first to complain about all these young whippersnappers with their noisy fandangled engines and silly energy swords. He’ll tell you that back in his day all they could transform into was a penny farthing or a loaf of bread and they were damn happy about it. As he got older and became sick of young hooligans setting bags of dog crap on fire at his front door, he became the founder of the first Cybertronian Fire departement, and transformed into a horse drawn fire engine, complete with horses.
We too long to return to the better days when robots could be happily drawn and enjoyed for 10c an hour, and none of this new fanged US$150,000,000 blockbuster movie crap. You can look forward to a copy of the game and DVD arriving at your doorstep soon.
Thank you to all those who entered, giving us a laugh, and making it difficult to pick a single winner. Massive thanks to Activision, High Moon Studios and Madman Entertainment for making the competition possible.
