Transformers Number One!

On its fourth week of screening, the Transformers movie still reigns at the Hollywood box office! Oh yeah! Sam, the Autobots and Decepticons have placed themselves in to the number one spot in behalf of DreamWorks Production, Paramount Pictures and Hasbro and they have been outperforming other blockbuster hits during this season! So why am I talking about this awesome movie instead of our usual engine parts and auto update conversations? Let me tell you this: cars and other cool vehicles have something to do with the Transformers’ success since it was first shown on cinemas last July 4, 2007.

Aside from the radical effects, great story and cool characters, the featured vehicles on the big hit film stood up and emerged as the major factors of that made people go crazy about the Transformers. To those who haven’t seen this movie or to those people who are not quite familiar with the vehicle alternates of the robots, let me give you refreshing bits about these characters.

Autobots

  • Optimus Prime (Peterbilt 379 truck): The intelligent and powerful Autobot leader who comes to protect humanity from the evil Decepticons.
  • Bumblebee (1969/2009 Chevrolet Camaro): A friendly explorer who develops a friendship with Sam and Mikaela during his efforts to find the Allspark.
  • Jazz (Modified Pontiac Solstice): Optimus' second-in-command, he is a small but acrobatic fighter. He is geared with magnetic hands.
  • Ironhide (Custom GMC Topkick C4500 pick-up truck): The hard-hitting weapons specialist of the group.
  • Ratchet (Search & Rescue Hummer H2): The team's medic and scientist. He has enhanced senses, distinguished from Sam's pheromones that he has the hots for Mikaela, He uses a gun and a saw.


Decepticons
  • Megatron (Cybertronian "jet"): The brutal Decepticon leader who desires power over the Allspark.
  • Starscream (F-22 Raptor): Megatron's second-in-command who leads the Decepticons in his absence. He was criticized for failing him repeatedly once Megatron returned that led to an uneasy relationship between the two.
  • Barricade (Saleen S281 Mustang police car): A Decepticon in cover of a police car that attacked Sam. On the back quarter pane of his vehicle form is written to “punish and enslave”, instead of “to protect and serve”.
  • Frenzy (GPX 2-speaker CD player, mobile phone): The smallest Decepticon who worked as a spy and a computer hacker who tracked Sam down. He is an agile fighter. Frenzy is armed with blades hidden as CDs from his chest.
  • Bonecrusher (Buffalo H Mine-Protected vehicle): He attacked Optimus Prime on the highway to Mission City to interrupt Optimus' arrival.
  • Blackout (MH-53 Pave Low helicopter).
