    "Trans-Europe Express"
    This episode revolves around Megatron holding a fake charity race to get a racecar with a rare metal engine to race nearby. So he can use the metal to make a controller for the weather ball they found. Yeah..
    The important part is there's a race involving the carbots and the Stunticons crash the party. Carbots/cons being some of my favorites, this episode seems perfect for photo opportunity.
    MPM Bumblebee is substituting for G1 as I don't have it. I would've done more with Bluestreak's alt mode but his fender hinge being broken, I'm reluctant to transform him.

    Enjoy the episode (continued in spoiler tag). It's a lot longer than I anticipated, but I had fun.

    In a last minute decision, it has been announced that those amazing machines, the Autobots, will also be participating in the race.
    IMG_20180311_095332.jpg

    Megatron: "...I anticipated their ill fated participation.
    Stunticons! Make sure not a single Autobot crosses the finish line alive."

    It'll be a pleasure.
    IMG_20180311_104045.jpg

    Neither of us will win at this rate.
    And now more are gaining on us!
    IMG_20180310_083508.jpg

    I got a funny feeling about this!
    IMG_20180310_083527.jpg

    It's Dead End! These guys are Stunticons!
    IMG_20180310_083449.jpg

    Say hello to the junkyard!
    IMG_20180309_000133.jpg

    Sideswipe! Hit the brakes!
    IMG_20180309_000319.jpg

    Now for the rest of those AutoBozos.
    IMG_20180310_083317.jpg

    The race is almost over.
    IMG_20180310_083140.jpg

    It is over! For you!
    Motormaster!
    IMG_20180310_083213.jpg

    This is the finish Wheeljack!
    Ooh, my aching cylinders...
    IMG_20180310_083229.jpg

    That shortcut did the trick, at this rate I'll be the first Autobot to cross the finish line.
    IMG_20180310_083122.jpg

    Wildrider!
    IMG_20180310_083340.jpg

    IMG_20180310_083357.jpg

    Smokescreen! He really wrecked himself up.
    Got to get him repaired somehow.
    IMG_20180310_082946.jpg

    Aah I shoulda known!
    IMG_20180310_083707.jpg

    IMG_20180310_083619.jpg

    Why not fight?
    IMG_20180310_083247.jpg

    Sometimes the best way to fight is just to hang on!
    IMG_20180310_083548.jpg

    Do what you will you won't shake me off!
    IMG_20180310_083602.jpg

    Getting near the finish old buddy.
    Wheeljack? Sideswipe?
    IMG_20180310_083650.jpg

    Tracks! Look up ahead, is it me, or are those racers heading in the wrong direction?
    Racers nothing! It's the Stunticons!
    Let's make ourselves scarce.
    IMG_20180310_083857.jpg

    Cover him!
    IMG_20180311_095525.jpg

    Hit the dirt!
    IMG_20180310_083728.jpg

    This is hopeless! There's a dozen of them and only three of us!
    But we've got the Pearl!
    He said it was dangerous!
    IMG_20180311_095458.jpg

    Could it be worse than this?
    IMG_20180311_095637.jpg

    Do you think I am so easily thwarted?
    Stunticons! Unite!
    Menasor will get the Pearl back!
    IMG_20180311_032554.jpg

    Take cover! Quickly!
    IMG_20180311_100032.jpg

    Geet Peeaarrrl!
    IMG_20180311_100118.jpg

    C'mon you big bully!
    IMG_20180311_095658.jpg

    Such senseless violence!
    Do you think that'll really hold him?
    Off hand I'd say... Not at all!
    IMG_20180311_095729.jpg

    Menasor crush!
    IMG_20180311_095806.jpg

    Destroy!
    IMG_20180311_095853.jpg

    Raaaagh!
    IMG_20180311_095942.jpg

    IMG_20180311_100007.jpg

    Run!
    IMG_20180311_100214.jpg

    IMG_20180311_100233.jpg

    No escape!

    Thanks!

    The episode has it's moments (the race and Stunticons wrecking shit).

    A couple things bother me though:
    -Sideswipe and Sunstreaker (and Bumblebee) are apparently oblivious.
    Tracks, Smokescreen, Bluestreak, and Wheeljack all recognized the Stunticons instantly.

    -Bluestreak, Tracks, and Bumblebee are apparently an elite fighting force.
    They took on Megatron, Soundwave w/ Cassettes, Constructicons, and Stunticons/Menasor and still won with nary a scratch.

    -Megatron waiting for Bumblebee to drive up, transform, scale his massive combiner sized body, get onto his arm, grab the Pearl, jump down, and run off before he reacted.

    I know, I know it's a kid's show.. The kids (4yo boy, 6yo girl) did enjoy the episode while I looked for reference material.


    Ready for round two, Streaker?

    No argument. It didn't make a lot of sense. I generally liked episodes based on the characters used and the quality of animation. The writing was well........you know. Thanks for sharing the recreated scenes.

    Excellent work @Potchez!!! Bravo!!! As Stan Lee would say.... EXCELSIOR!!!

    Great way to recreate a memorable scene from one of my favourite episodes!! (Not to mention the fact that it's also the name of one of my favourite Kraftwerk albums.)

    Plus, we finally can see how the Transformission Stunticons scale with other MP and 3P figure's!! While I've seen slot of images of the Transformission Stunticons, I don't often see images with them and other MP and 3P carbots. So what you've done here... it's really a great public service!!!

    I'm always amazed by you guys who photograph with black backdrops!!

    I understand the tricks of changing the contrast threshold, and loved your previous tutorial!! That was the best tutorial I never expected to see!! Impromptu and perfect!!

    Eventually, I just need to pick up the necessary lights and lightbox...

    But, I just went nuts and ordered TW Constructor... so I am kinda tapped out financially at the moment...

    Nevertheless... Great work @Turbine027!!!

    You don't need a light box. Just get a back drop and some lights with some type of disspersment features and whamo. These taKen with $50 lights from Amazon (2 soft boxes) and back drop from Amazon ($10). You will need some basic editing skills to further improve it. I use LR + PS

    We all have our favorites.
    I thought Bluestreak was the standout character in that episode. Dude was flying all over the place making the Stunticons look foolish. And he jumped on Menasor like he was going to tear him apart with his bare hands. Who does that? Oh right, Bluestreak.

    Thanks, much appreciated!
    I really do enjoy the TFM Stunticons (if you can't tell). They're sized perfectly with the MP carbots in bot and alt mode. While Motormaster is Prime size in alt and bot.
    The only odd man out is Dragstrip in alt mode, who looks better with Alternators in car mode.

    Oh yeah Bluestreak was the Bot in that episode. Might be his most featured episode.

    What sticker set did the Autobut logo on the muzzle of Bounceback's Targetmaster gun come from?
