It is unusual for a Hasbro Designer Desk video to spotlight a Masterpiece figure - not least of which because MPs tend to be projects initiated by TakaraTomy. But because of that, this Masterpiece Bumblebee episode of Transformers Designer Desk has a very special guest star, Mr. Shogo Hasui! Keep reading to see the video!
In the continuation of one of the most amazing discoveries in our fandom, Transformers At The Moon has released the contents of another audio tape of previously unheard dialogue from the G1 cartoon. This installment covers all of More Than Meets The Eye part 2, with the new content running around five minutes in total. There aren't any fully new scenes discovered, but some are expanded quite a bit versus the TV broadcast. And once again we've put together stills from the aired episode the lend context to the various snippets of audio. Keep reading for that and the embedded video!
Transformers@TheMoon has posted their final tape from the very first episode of The Transformers,
"More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1"! This one is a bit light on new material, but we do get more of voice director Wally Burr directing "body english" takes! This isn't the last of TF@TM's material, but they've finally reached the end of the first third
of the 1984 premiere. Click through to listen!
Transformers@TheMoon continues its exploration of a collection of audio cassettes containing dialogue from the G1 cartoon! Today they're focusing on "body english" - grunts of exertion and pain and other basic sounds needed to accompany action scenes. (There's also a single example of mild profanity from Chris Latta, in case you're listening to this in a work environment.) We also get to hear voice director Wally Burr forget Megatron's name - but bear in mind this is from everyone's first day of work. Click through to hear the audio!
Transformers@TheMoon has posted the third installment in their collection of Sunbow G1 Audio tapes! We're still in the midst of the very first episode, "More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1," and we've got another round of deleted scenes! Judging from Chris Latta's performance as Starscream on some of these lines, you get the feeling that it was known some of this material would probably not be used... then again, one of the tapes is labeled "Day 1," so it could simply be that he was still feeling out the character. Click through to hear the audio!
Transformers At The Moon is continuing with the amazing work of digitizing the contents of a cache of old production audio cassettes from the Generation 1 cartoon, featuring never before heard audio of scenes that didn't make the final broadcast episodes. In the second such installment, we have more from part 1 of More Than Meets The Eye, featuring extended versions of familiar scenes, and one that was removed entirely! We've taken some screencaps from the episode to help you establish context, check them out while you listen to the clips, embedded below!
Transformers At The Moon
has acquired a real piece of Transformers history: original audio tapes of the dialogue tracks for the G1 cartoon! That in and of itself would be notable, but there are also deleted scenes on these tapes! TF@TM has put up a video of an excerpt from "More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1" featuring heretofore unheard dialogue between Bumblebee and Ratchet, among others. All this, and you get to hear legendary voice director Wally Burr at work too. Keep reading to hear!
Finally! Loopaza Mega Store has posted a video to their Facebook page showing off the sound chip in LG31 Fortress Maximus' head, Cerebros/Fortress!. As hoped and rumored, it does in fact have a short version of the Headmasters theme! The rest of the voices are Japanese dialogue (of course), with lines such as "Transform!", "I am Fortress,"
and of course "Head On!"

Turkish company Letrons has posted videos to their site of the first of a projected line of life-sized
R/C cars that turn into robots! While many other people have been trying for this - most notably the TakaraTomy-sponsored Project J-Deite
- this is the first such model to look this good at 1/1 scale. Keep reading for videos, a link to Letrons' website, and images of their other concept models!
