Sun Wukong Battles The Transformers

So it’s been rumored that Transformers: The Last Knight has Merlin in it, but it looks like the Monkey King from Journey to the West also exists in the Transformers movie universe.

Apparently this is a Chinese movie that is actually being made. Not much else is known.

TRANSLATION:
Movie title: “Sun Wu Kong Battles The Transformers”
Category: 3D, Fantasy & Si-fi
Team: Spielberg, Hollywood top tier production
Story: Sun Wu Kong and the Transformers bury the hatchet, together they fight against an alien invading force and eventually save the world

Apparently there were a lot of fan comics of this nature in China in the 1980s. Which makes this an official movie inspired by fanfic?

Well, THERE’S an unexpected crossover

Super Robot Wars XΩ continues to use its less structured format as a way to include pretty much anything it wants to. Idolm@ster Xenoglossia was a little surprising, and Crayon Shin-chan was something nobody could possibly have predicted (and probably never asked for), but this new one breaks down another boundary.

For the first time, a live action work is included in a SRW game. And it’s not any of the ones you probably just thought of. It’s not G-Savior either, the obscure live-action Gundam movie that some people think they’ve avoided solely because they didn’t want to open the door to live action.

But, well…

The King of the Monsters himself, fighting alongside the King of Braves and the King of Hearts.  And yes, Shinji is in some kind of Godzilla-Eva hybrid.

The Mazinger Z villains really hate the fact that Hideaki Anno is directing Godzilla: Resurgence right now…

MechaGodzilla is there too, so I guess you can’t say it doesn’t have mecha. (Also, Jet Alone from Neon Genesis Evangelion was based on Jet Jaguar.)

5 More Impractical Robot Transformations

Last year I did a list of unusual transformations that are still among my most popular posts, so here’s an addition to it.

Oh, and here is a more complete article about the McDonalds Changeables, which I included on the previous list but had difficulty finding much about.

#5 – Mirage

One of the original Transformers. I mentioned him as a side note in the previous list, but didn’t think race cars should take more than one spot on the list. But after completing the list I was made aware of something I hadn’t known.

Formula 1 cars cannot drive on normal roads. I don’t mean they just aren’t street legal; they literally can’t drive on any road that has a “crown”, or on any surface that isn’t completely flat.

(Mirage does manage to drive on regular roads in the cartoon despite the fact that the real vehicle he looks like can’t, but this could only be accomplished by some kind of inaccuracy, and is only one of several factors that make him by far the most conspicuous of the original Autobots.)

Project X Zone 2 new trailer

I liked the first one even with it’s flaws, and it seems they might be fixing some of those this time around.

Note it says “and more”, so don’t go assuming this is everybody in the game (or even every game that it has characters from) like I’ve seen some people do.

Though unfortunately, it’s probably safe to say by now that, despite the fact that Monolith is owned by Nintendo, they aren’t going to reveal it’s actually a four-company crossover with the unrevealed characters including Link, Samus, Lucina, and Pit.

Crossover Chaos: Multiverses

I’ve been writing a series of posts about crossovers, and I’m almost ready to bring it all together, but first, one more point about multiverses.

It makes sense to me that if a franchise has a multiverse, then any crossover with any part of it establishes being able to crossover with any part in a multiverse sense. Here’s a (certainly incomplete) list of franchises whose multiple continuities are established to be a connected multiverse and/or split timeline. (Notably, most “new universe” crossovers actually include at least one of these, making them effectively count the same as multiverse crossovers.)
