Robots in disguise
April 26, 2013

robotsindisguiseMum: Who’s Bumblebee?

Son: Bumblebee’s a Transformer.

Mum: Ah he must look like a bee?

Son: Yes, and he talks like this “buzz, buzz”. He turns into a car too. Because he’s a robot.

Mum: Oh yes – ‘robots in disguise’!

Son: What’s ‘disguise’?

Mum: It’s when you try and make yourself look like something else – like people might put different clothes on and wear a wig.

Son: Transformers do NOT wear wigs! How could wigs turn into cars? They’re metal!
Bulkhead is the strongest one of all, but he keeps getting killed. That’s not very strong is it?
They think he’s dead when he lies down not moving, but he’s actually not.

Mum: Maybe he’s just having a break.

Son: No the Autobots never ever have a break – not even Bulkhead.

Wormman – Mar 2013

D: There’s Wormman – he’s a bad guy. See he’s a worm? Look, he has arms and legs – that’s why he’s called Wormman. See those lines? They’re metal spikes. I didn’t get time to put them on his head. If he spikes them on metal though – like on a robot – they would kill him. So he doesn’t spike robots, because he knows.

Axeman – Mar 2013

D: They’re all bits of rainbow, those coloured lines. That’s Axeman up there in the corner, because he’s got a head shaped like an axe and he’s a baddie.
They’re two children who are saying: “You can’t defeat us!” Because they have those orange things, which are boxing shoes – they’re metal and they can kick right through anything – even if it’s metal. That boy’s pressing a button on his boxing shoes and they’re kicking Axeman.
They’ve also got electricity for senses and the electricity is going all around Axeman and he goes down and is never seen again!
