I’m not sure how many animatronics I would want in my own birthday cake as a matter of practicality, but a G1 Optimus who can become a robot and go back to a truck, and be (mostly) eaten by kids is impressive indeed.
However, next year I want to see cake creator Rusell Munro step up and make a Bayformers Bumblebee cake that sprays Mello Yello everywhere from its crotch.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
