Midnight Express

Not the movie (which is totally banging as well), the Transformer! I was pretty reluctant to bring up Transformers, since everybody either hates them now, or already knew they were awesome. But I've never even heard of this fucken guy:

Giorgio Moroder - Theme from Midnight Express


Midnight Express. She's (yeah. she's a girl. mind = blown.) a bullet-train Autobot. She's fun loving, and she kicks total ass. Bullet trains rule. *Fist pump*

It was so obvious! There desperately needed to be a train-themed Transformer from day one. Maybe she's been around since day one, I don't know. Frankly I don't want to know. I discovered the idea of this locomotive-lass like... yesterday, and it has completely changed everything.

Midnight Express. Well done, you may well have single-handedly breathed new life into the Transformers universe as I know it.


  1. Completely agreed except there already IS a train themed Transformer. He's a Decepticon called Astrotrain.

    But if you thought that was cool, he can also transform into a NASA space shuttle.

    Is that cool?

  2. Jesus. Yes. But i don't like the idea of NASA being used for evil :)

  3. Dudes in the Japanese Transformers continuation there's a whole gestalt of Trainbots that form into a massive robot, or a very long train...

    was this post nerdy?

  4. "The Trainbots are a team of six fictional robots who appeared in the Japanese series Transformers: The Headmasters." - That sounds amazing. Thanks Water!
