May was a bumper month in a lot of respects, but certainly in terms of quality Transformers content! Behold, here are 73 (!) amazing robot-related tweets from the last 31 days or so.
As ever, they’re sort of (ish) in date order (except when they’re not). Enjoy!

I want you guys to photoshop Bumblebee Movie Brawn in the background of other movie scenes as if he just showed up, can you do it? pic.twitter.com/zyEswDx6rm

Leave your old Elf on the shelf and grab a new Orc for the dork!

I’m at the stage where every robot should get a black repaint.

Now *this* is quality content.
Finally got SS 86 Hot Rod yesterday and immediately felt a need for this thing.
The wiki calls him ‘Auto-Combatant’ but I’ll call him Time Out. He breaks apart into Weaponiser pieces. The arms/ head into maces, legs into guns and chest into a jetpack.
Printing him on Monday! pic.twitter.com/VEPeZmqLvS
— Hightail Creations (@Hightail_Works) May 15, 2021
TIME OUT! TIME OUT!
Weaponiser Auto-Combatant ‘Time Out’ is fully assembled and painted! I gave Hot Rod his shield and saber to go with the set. All parts can be ported onto Ironhide!
It’s deluxe sized, 13cm tall. His files will be available for purchase on Cults3D tonight. pic.twitter.com/zjXQ3RXinY

I’m gonna start saying this more.

Another entry from @marble_v_ this month but this was too good not to include!
I still think a good name for a "Nemesis" version of Rodimus Prime would be "Ruinous Prime." https://t.co/bFGD76HpLc

100% sold on this.
The real question is, why isn’t he bigger?

I will never forget the phrase “articulate the nipples” until my dying day.
“Dude he is SO thicc omg”
If you could pick one bit from any of the Transformers movies (Not the G1 movie) that's iconic to you, which scene/moment would it be?
For me it would have to be the Deception mobilization scene from the first film. pic.twitter.com/OgrV22LvJ1
— Solartron – Decepticon warrior (@Solar_Transform) May 22, 2021
Alright, as much as we may poke fun at the live action films at times, this thread is full of wonderful examples of the bits people genuinely enjoyed about them too!
It was inevitable but the result is still well worth it.
I’ve never liked Beast Wars Scorponok more than this one picture.
— DaViD (@FakeEyes22) May 23, 2021
I want this made in live action now, please.
On this day back in 2009, the final episode of Transformers: Animated aired. Endgame part 2, which saw the Autobots take on the Decepticons for a final showdown, Prowl sacrificing himself to restore the Allspark and Optimus kick Megatron's ass and take the defeated cons captive! pic.twitter.com/jPG1BtnRl5

Er, spoiler alert, I guess?

I’m assuming the Botbot’s name isn’t ‘Wrath’.
Check out this sweet Italian bootleg Blitzwing that has him transform into a bulldozer instead of a tank.

If you prefer art that is deeply unprofessional, here is a two-part thread featuring TRANSFORMERS: WHEELIE: RHYME MASTERS, a comic with two colons, one star, and no point.

This is the best Wheelie-related fiction I’ve ever seen.
So that’s our list. Did we miss any other great Transformers tweets? Have a great month!
