What’s that, another month gone by? So it seems! In fact it’s incredible to think that we’re in May of 2021 already but there it is. Fortunately it means it’s also time to celebrate with another round of top Transformers tweets.
As ever, they’re sort of (only sort of) in date order. Enjoy!

Who doesn’t love a fantastic callback, eh? This is one for that Leonardo DiCaprio meme.

There’s always joy to be had in seeing other people’s fabulous toy displays… especially when they’re as good as this!

Few things inspire the fandom like the phrase “Titan Class Tidal Wave”.
— Transformers Toys (@transformertoys) April 6, 2021
Toys like this are what the phrase “holy grail” was really meant for.
Custom Action Master Jetfire! He will be auctioned for charity later in the year, make sure to follow me to keep up to date!! pic.twitter.com/njnOnOvvij
— Blueshift (@RockLordsRock) April 6, 2021
This isn’t the first amazing Action Master custom that we’ve seen (as the fourth pic will testify) but it is one of the best! Outstanding.
I think a lot of people would feel quite… animated about this idea.
Wow, that is really something!

There he is, my beautiful boy!
Might take you a minute…

It’s fair to say that the new Teletraan 1 / Mainframe mash-up idea has gone down well.
Man, silverbolt retools, am i right? pic.twitter.com/CgLQyCfPCQ

The red circles confirm this to be true.

also thinking about this photograph, which is
1) the cartoon ark
2) transformed into marvel comics' the last autobot
3) holding beast wars' the golden disk
this toy is a continuity turducken pic.twitter.com/tklKk6QSZO
— I'LL BE A LIVING GOD (@damnyouwillis) April 10, 2021
I’ve never considered the words ‘continuity’ and ‘turducken’ together in a sentence before but now it’s all I can think about.
I mentioned that people were loving Mainframe, right? Well, how good is this?
— Alex (@alx2k5) April 12, 2021
Oh sorry, that’s the sound of my jaw hitting the floor right there.
— Autopod Decepticast licking toilets again. (@ApodDcast) April 13, 2021
I shan’t tell you all the things I did at 14 that I think were way worse than owning this toy.
My daughter just got the L.O.L. Surprise Dance Machine car, and it is absolutely mad! ⚡️
We couldn't resist letting the Transformers Studio Series 86 Hot Rod, Kup and LG Arcee give it a spin (and communicate the size!) pic.twitter.com/dvQLfPyJCJ

Distinct Action Master Wheeljack vibes.
— Benson Yee (@BWTF_Ben) April 15, 2021
Ooof, that’s an amazing haul.
There is just something romantic about having the original designer of Diaclone Car Robot No. 9 Honda City Turbo (G1 1985 Skids) in Kojin Ono / 大野 光仁 from back in 1982 also work on and design the new Transformers MP-53 Skids pic.twitter.com/R68tM4owie

The circle is complete!
My favourite thing about G1 pic.twitter.com/zPB3lh3mos
— Spoon888 (@doomspoon888) April 15, 2021
Also consider that those animation errors would go on to become someone’s favourite characters.
Here are some concepts that have been on my mind for the longest time. MP Lockdown based on Guido Guidi's G1 Lockdown and Shattered Glass Goldbug using the SS86 Hotrod body (because Cybertron Hotshot is a pretty blatant homage). pic.twitter.com/R2Skyz4pSw

The guy does not get enough appreciation. See also The Rebirth.
One of the best bits in a movie full of best bits is the bit in Transformers The Movie when Unicron's tits blow up and he realises he's so fucked the immediate response is to pull off his own leg.
— Jon Wrong (@BoastfulManfish) April 18, 2021
Would any of us do differently?
them: "If you hate base modes and trailers so much, why do you own two G1 Optimus Primes?"

No lies detected.
Do I have everyone's attention? Alright….here goes.

Say no more!
A gentle reminder that The Transformers – The Movie is one of the most brutal films ever made. I’m pretty sure it’s when I really first found out about death, or at least when it really hit me for real that it was something that happened to people… pic.twitter.com/NRgpWiACQi
— Matt Ferguson (@Cakes_Comics) April 22, 2021
All of your favourites in one tweet!
— 株式会社トイコー (@toyco_ltd) April 22, 2021
So this is a silver chromed version of Toyco Astro Magnum, the figure that would of course go on to become G1 Shockwave. And it’s delicious!

Sounds about right.
— human name (@Brentosaur) April 23, 2021
That’s the song in my head again, then.
It seems like every one of these lists needs an amazing stop motion entry so here’s this month’s.
— Gavin Spence (@GeshGav) April 25, 2021
This wins the internet.

At least he didn’t ask who he was originally.

The most iconic pose in TF history? Sure.
transformers fans be like "I hope this movie doesn't have people in it"
— Thew (@toygrind) April 30, 2021
There has been a bit of that this month.

Why do her legs look like the sides of her head got big?
— マキシマ (@MAXTFEX) April 24, 2021
Neat little trick that’s worth knowing if you have Studio Series Hot Rod!
— 臣 (@OMITFREVIEW) April 30, 2021
They still rule my heart.
So that’s our list. Did we miss any other great Transformers tweets? Have a great month!
