    Since I've finished uni for the Summer and have nothing to do until September, I needed a time consuming project. So here we have it! Takara_Destron's transformers present "Robot Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet". Worried about your Transformers lacking depth and a gripping storyline? Well here we have them performing the timeless classic!

    Originally I was going do the whole thing (almost) word for word, but then I realised not only would that be boring but it would take FOREVER! So I've opted for an adaptation instead. Its still going to be a long piece, so I'm hoping you'll stick with it, I'll try to update it twice a week and the rest of the week will be spent adapting the script. So with no further ado, I give you Robot Shakespeare!

    Cool. This looks like its going to be quite hilarious. :D 

    Interesting, the font colors you used for Blitzwing are the same ones as my comic (though not the fonts themselves). :D

    Alright, you get the Funnies award for most original idea. :D  Can't wait to see the adaptation, although I wonder who the two main characters would be. If the Montagues are Decepticons, and the Capulets are Autobots, then anyone could be Romeo, but you don't have much to choose from in the way of Juliet.

    Can't wait to continue reading this. :D

    So... Is Blackarachnia going to be Grimlock's cousin?

    That makes the events of Black Friday a wee bit... Squick.

    Still, this seems awesome. Keep it up!

    As hilarious that would be, no.
    As Sage correctly said, the Montagues are all Decepticons and the Capulets are all Autobots. Black Arachnia does have a (small) role, but she was needed as a Decepticon.

    Very neat idea, a Transformers take on one of the most well-known Shakespearean plays. Nice. Can't wait to see how this all plays out.

    :lol  at Blitzwing's wanting to be in The Lion King.
