I haven’t done a Transformers fan film on Saturday Night Showcase for a long time. Let’s fix that tonight. For those of you not aware, “Shattered Glass” is a convention comic exclusive, created for the Transformers Collector’s Club. The story follows a version of G1 Cliffjumper being tossed into a mirror universe (now referred to by fans as the Shattered Glass Universe) where the Autobots are evil and the Decepticons are a rebel group trying to oppose their plans of conquest. Other stories followed and the concept has a strong fan following.
In tonight’s Showcase we’ll be watching a 2015 stop-motion fan movie based on that idea. A Decepticon from the Shattered Glass universe finds a plot by the evil Autobots to invade another universe. Can he warn the good Autobots of their plot, and possibly find…love? It makes more sense and less squick in context. The Transformers are performed by the actual toys, but since there is a severe lack of human action figures even close to Transformer size the creators went with Lego figures and sets. If you can get past that, there isn’t such a bad story here for a low-budget fan production. If you can’t handle that it isn’t Hollywood quality that’s on you. If you can get over
yourself that hurdle you might enjoy this. I did.
