A film like this could only be made by people who truly love the source material. While Generation 1: Hero might not have the flash and polish of any of the Michael Bay films, it does have some of the best Transformer Cosplay you’ll ever see, thanks to the folks of the “Arizona Autobots.”
Using a combination of RC miniatures, cosplay, and highly detailed G1 style cosplay, they’ve created an extremely cool and fun to watch love letter to one of the greatest things to come out of the 1980s. I’d watch this instead of any of the Michael Bay films any day.
Generation:1 is a fan made live action transformers “costuming” movie featuring the characters of the original Transformers G1 cartoon series from the 80’s using practical effects and in camera effects.
