Transformers

Filed under: Bill Bickel, comic strips, comics, movies, Robots, Shortpacked, Transformers — Cidu Bill @ 1:56 am

So we’re eating dinner last night and I happen to mention I have no idea what the concept of the Transformers even is, and my wife says “How can you not know this? You read Shortpacked, don’t you?”

…maybe you had to have been there.

  1. The Transformers (“More than meets the eye”) are robots in disguise.

    The Autobots wage their battle to de-stroy the e-vil for-ces of

    the Decepticons.

    Twenty years ago for the first movie, Orson Wells recorded voiceovers for the villian. All he really knew about mythos, etc. was he plays a “big toy that attacks a bunch of smaller toys.”

  2. To be fair to you, Bill, DW rarely bothers to explain what Transformers are in Shortpacked.

    It’s possible that you just fall into the age range too old for Transformers at the time they came out yet also too young to have kids at that time.

  3. To the wikipedia!!!

    Optimus Prime:

    Where does his trailer disappear to when he transforms?

    Megatron:

    Why transform into a P38 when nobody’s around to pull your trigger?
