Happy Friday! This week Retro Robot Radio and TFormers.com start the Ladybird Books stories with the first in the series, Autobots' Lightning Strike by science fiction author John Grant from 1985. In this story the Autobots attempt to harness the power of a lightning storm, but the Decepticons can't be far behind can they? Art in this book is done by Mike Collins (Marvel Comics artist) and Mark Farmer (Marvel and DC comic artist).




Happy Friday! Another classic audiobook from the 1980s comes ot you from Retro Robot Radio and Tformers.com. This one is Slaves of the Insecticons, and is set after the book we shared two weeks ago, Jaws of Terror. This book starts to work in some of the season 2 characters, with Blaster appearing on the inside cover, Skyfire fighting the Decepticon jets, and a super rare appearance of the Deluxe Insecticons as villians!




Autobase Aichi reports that Amazon Japan has made a listing for a "Transformers Masterpiece Official Guide," a 96-page softcover guidebook costing 3024 Yen. Autobase Aichi also suggests the book is due for release on July 30th. No other information is known except that the publisher is one "Village Book," and thus the book will not be a part of Million Publishing's Generations line of guidebooks. More information as it becomes available, but for now click through if you want to see the Amazon Japan page for the book!




Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Transformers with the audio book adaptation of the 1986 Transformers film, done by Ladybird books. Written by John Grant, and illustrated with screen captures from the film. It's like nothing you have ever heard before!




Jaws of Terror is a 1986 audiobook by John Braden with art by Pablo Marcos and Judith Marcos. It features Optimus Prime, Prowl, Ratchet and MANY Dinobots. The origin of the Dinobots is taken from the Marvel Comics stories, where they were trapped in the Savage Land. They were not created by Wheeljack and Ratchet. Megatron has a new weapon he plans to use against the Autobot, THE CRUSHER! Even has an early appearance of Ramjet!




Megatron's quest for oil has him pumping ocean water under the Brazilian rainforest to push oil out of underground reservoirs to the surface. In doing so, he again instigates worldwide disasters by drawing off a warm ocean current and drastically altering weather patterns. Story by John Braden and art by Pablo Marcos and Judith Marcos.




This week Retro Robot Radio and TFormers.com bring you the sequal to last week's epic story, called When Continents Collide! This 1985 story by John Braden features the same cast as Satellite of Doom, but this time Megatron's plan is to syphon the world's oil reservoirs, which causes massive earthquakes and volcanos, and nearly starts WWIII! Art by Pablo Marcos and Judith Marcos




This third week of Transformers Audiobooks, brought to you by Retro Robot Radio and Tformers, brings you the SATELLITE OF DOOM by John Braden. Unlike last week's funny story, this one is pretty dark. Megatron takes slaves, kills millions of people, destroys cities and invents fracking! This is some children's book.




Our second weekend spotlights one of the more light hearted audiobooks. This is one of the earliest attempts at a story set in year one of the Transformers on Earth. The Autobots need to find energy for themselves, but unlike the Decepticons, they are not willing to steal it... so maybe they can win it in a car rally? Of course things are never easy with the Decepticons nearby!




Each weekend Retro Robot Radio and TFormers.com will take the time to spotlight a different Transformers audio book story from the 1980s. Out first book will Scott Siegel's 1984 classic The Battle for Cybertron with Illustrations by Earl Norem. This story is an alternate telling of how the Autobots and Decepticons came to Earth, and how they met their friends on Earth. Read on to hear the story now.
