Prior to starting the video, I was afraid this was a re-enactment of the War of the 5 Kings

It IS rather amazing how these children can transform more realistically than the robots in those Michael Bay movies.

Yup, these kids win costume of the century awards.  Wow.  I honestly wish I could have been half as awesome as that in 1985.

I think there's a certain je ne sais quoi lost without the spiraling somersaulting that Bay's Transformers do.

Street entertainers on Hollywood Boulevard and on the Strip in Vegas (you know, the peeps tourists snap a pic with for a few bucks) have had these since the first Michael Bay Transformers flick came out.

Getting them kid-sized is super cute, though. I woulda been over the moon to have a costume like that as a kid.

Is this a stolen video, or a reenactment? This should have a vintage tag as it was d'une a few years back. Pepperidge farm remembers.

Just saw the first one, once.  Far, far too many humans in it.

I still like the 1986 movie.

I expect transformers to actually transform realistically like the toys do. Bending joints, folding into place, etc.

Having them disintegrate into a whirlwind of parts flying around for reassembly is as lazy as it is pathetic.

Do you also expect them to only move when a child pushes them? Stop making the trademark transformation noise because that doesn't happen in real life? The missiles to hit but not explode because what you shot out of the toys didn't?

The toys emulated the cartoons and the children's imagination was supposed to fill the gaps.
I'm sure Hollywood could have done robots that had bending joints that fold into place. But why take away from flashiness and excitement?
I could have watched a movie as you described, but fantasy:SciFi movies are supposed to expand in life, not emulate it.
This actually stretches out thinking in the real life and see what is possible.

Funny, we were just talking about remakes of the various comic book movies and how every new generation seems to discover them as if they never existed. A younger person I know watched the 80s Batman movie and wondered what was up with the outlandish colors of costumes and sets. I mentioned the moved was based on comic books with a nod to the TV show.  He couldn't quite get over why there was little attempt at realism.
