Dark Horse Comics unveiled a new video trailer for their upcoming adaptation of the original treatment for “The Star Wars”.

Today is the 27th anniversary of the release of Transformers: The Movie! The film (best of the big screen adaptations, in our opinion) starred the voices of Orson Wells, Leonard Nimoy, Peter Cullen, Frank Welker and Judd Nelson as Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime! (spoilers)

Funny enough, this movie takes place 8 years in the past. Yet, we’re no closer to transforming vehicles OR powered suits of armor. What gives, future?
