COUNTDOWN: 175 Transformers tweets from May that need to be seen! (part 1)

Can you believe it’s pressing on towards June already? Summer may be almost upon us, but in the meantime, we have plenty more fabulous Transformers-related tweets to celebrate from the last month!

As ever, they’re presented vaguely in date order, although only very roughly. The idea is to showcase and celebrate all the creativity within the fandom, so it’s really not a competition or popularity contest of any kind. Enjoy!

#175:

Let’s kick off with a biggie! Don Figueroa is a legendary Transformers artist who surely needs little introduction. The great news is that he’s back on Twitter and already pumping out an incredible amount of eye-catching art that simply has to be seen. There are a couple of examples here, but go give him a follow for more… much more!

A necessary part of any collection, surely?
