Hold up, did you just say Maverick?
Screaming out of the Top Gun universe at an awe-inspiring Mach 2.34 is Maverick, and he is here to lay down the pain on some Decepticons. This sexy piece of aviation hardware can devastate the Decepticons in the air, on the land, or at the beach. (playing volleyball)
What’s All the Excitement About?
Your intrepid movie news reporter spent half his Navy career fixing aviation electronics. Who would have thought it, but the F-14 was my favorite jet to work on. The only Transformer I have ever owned that was bigger than a Matchbox Car was a mail order Jazz from from the 1980’s. Now, it looks as though the geniuses at Hasbro are going to talk me out of my hard-earned money one more time. And believe me… as a retiree, I can be down right miserly.
What is the worst part you ask? Why, I’m not even a Top Gun fan. I mean, The first 452 times I saw the movie, sure, it was good. But the Navy played that movie in every room with a TV, all throughout the 90’s. When I say they wore that movie out man… believe me, they wore it out. Now, to be fair, they would occasionally mix in a little Iron Eagle from time to time. Occasionally.
(Just one more way Louis Gossett Jr. has saved the day)
