Our own Dragonslayer has brought us news about a new article about the Transformers Movie that appeared in the Arlington Star-Telegram. Here is what he reported:

"My local newspaper, the Arlington Star-Telegram, ran an article in the A&E section today about the Transformers Movie and how TFs in general have had an effect on our popular culture. It also includes a Q&A thing with writer Roberto Orci. You can read the original article here."

Great read. This part kinda hit home:

Wired magazine, in its current Transformers cover story, speculates -- with tongue only partially in cheek -- that because so many young boys growing up in the '80s were either latchkey kids or products of broken homes, the heroic Optimus Prime became their "mech-daddy." "He was our Allfather," writes Scott Brown, "at a time when flesh-and-blood role models were increasingly few and far between."


Not to get all "poor-me" here, but I did go through that as a kid. My mom was a single parent, workin' 12 to 14 hour days to take care of my bro and I. All he and I had were TFs and our Atari, and later Nintendo. But TFs were so much more important because there were not only toys, but the show as well. And Optimus Prime was the be-all end-all of heroes. Duke couldn't touch him, nor He-man or Lion-o, or another. Prime was it. That's probably why he and I are such fans to this day, with that kinda impact how could you not.

Sorry about the rant, just connected with that part of the article. Good read all around.
