Toying with Transformers

It’s holiday time, not for me, but for my nephew and neice. And when I reached home from work yesterday, they had a plan up their tiny sleeves. They wanted to make a ‘Transformer movie’.

What rolled is entirely their plan.

It was a busy day in the city

Bumper-to-bumper traffic

… and what happened next was utterly unexpected.

Sideways (SW), 'the bad guy' according to Gavin, lands on the scene

There was confusion on the streets. He tossed and turned the cars around.

(For some reason Gavin wanted a retake of this shot again and again, tossing the cars around is what he likes best, I guess)

And then, help arrived. Bumblebee (BB), the most loved of the Autobots.

BB: STOP! You cannot hurt the humans

SW: Then I challenge YOU to a duel

(Mysteriously the topsy-turvy cars form a battle ring around the two transformer)

Boom!!! Boom!!! Pow!!!

BB knocks SW off his feet

... and claims VICTORY!!!

Optimus Prime makes a solemn entry

Optimus Prime: The Humans owe you their gratitude Bumble bee. We shall now depart to be part of their world

Far atop a skyscraper, the whole exchange is watched by evil eyes

To be continued…
