Halloween is one of our most favorite holidays. Not because there's loads of candy floating around, but because we just love all the costumes (which you've probably guessed considering our cosplay obsession). Unfortunately, a lot of people don't have the time to get all dressed up on the 31st, but these Transformers costume hoodies keep things simple.

When IDW scored the publishing rights for Hasbro's Transformers comics, they definitely made the most of it. Not only have they built up a cohesive timeline of their own Autobots and Decepticon history, but are about to have their 125th issue on the shelves! To mark this occasion, what better way to celebrate than by killing off the leader and most recognizeable Autobot of them all: Optimus Prime? Granted, this is but one of the many, many deaths he's had throughout his storied multi-media career, but it's shaping up to be one of the most epic. It comes at the conclusion of the current Chaos storyline that has been runnign through the Transformers ongoing comic and we can't wait to see how it all goes down! Here's some info, along with some cover art previews straight from our friends at IDW Publishing:

Do you like Transformers? How about old-school gaming? Well, if you answered "yes" to both of those, and happen to have several grand in cash lying around in a coffee can, then you're gonna want to check out the latest pinball machine from Stern Pinball: Transformers! No word on if this thing will turn into a robot and trash your house/urinate oil on you or if it's filled with Bay-esque explosions, but it looks like a ton of fun regardless.

Youngsters shouldn’t be the only ones having fun with Iron Man and Optimus Prime helmets. Thankfully, YouTuber Tigerpause444 seems to feel the same way. He’s taken a bunch of motorcycle helmets and turned them into awesome geek-themed headgear!

He's turned Iron Man, War Machine, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Darth Vader and Master Chief helmets into full-fledged motorcycle helmets! Some of the masks and helmets came with lights and voice changers and Tigerpause444 made sure to include them them in some of his one-off creations. Cruising through town on your hog is already a great way to spend the day, just imagine if you could do it with a Master Chief helmet on!

There are images of all six helmets after the break and we also snagged a video showing off the custom Iron Man helmet. If you want to get a breakdown of each helmet head over to Tigerpause444’s YouTube page! Read More...

Optimus Prime is one of the most beloved characters in pop-culture -- and he's back in Transformers Prime, which is airing on Hasbro's The Hub on Friday February 11 at 6:30 PM ET. Also returning is the original "Optimus" voice actor, Peter Cullen -- and MTV Geek had a chance to chat with the legend himself!

MTV Geek: How did you create that distinctive voice for Optimus Prime?

Peter Cullen: It all centers around the audition I had. On the very first day I was introduced to Optimus Prime , my brother Larry – a former Marine who fought in Vietnam, who was an officer and a recipient of a bronze star, and quite a leader – said, “Peter, don’t be one of those funny Hollywood heroes – be a real hero, you don’t have to yell and scream and act tough and pretend. Be gentle enough – because if you act tough, you can’t be gentle.” He’s about thirteen months older than I am, and about five inches taller, so he has a lower voice than I do – so I guess that’s where the voice part comes in, I was doing an impersonation of my brother Larry and applying his principles of leadership.

Geek: I guess that’s what always struck me about Optimus Prime’s voice – it sounded like a real person’s voice, and he didn’t have to force it. His voice sounded like there was a lot of integrity there, and I think a lot of people respond to that.

PC: Well, that’s the way I left the house that day, with that voice in my mind, thinking: this is the way to go, this is a home run. And I thank my brother for it to this day. We have a lot of fun going back-and-forth, and referring to him as the “real” Optimus Prime. Read More...
