I'll admit I might be a little bit biased since I have what I'd call a greater than average love for G2, but even among the generally high quality of early Transformers toy commercials, G2's have always stood out in particular to me. Discovering that The Spacebridge, purveyors of rare and unusual supplemental Transformers material, had a compilation of these commercials on their Youtube channel gave me cause to revisit them - and share that with you. Said to be sourced from original tape masters, these are likely the highest quality we'll ever see these. Click through to see!
Transformers @ The Moon has posted yet another tape of G1 dialogue! This one is a special treat, because it's from the episode that would come to be known as "Fire In The Sky," in which the character of Skyfire was introduced... but here, in the original unmodulated recording sessions, the name is given as Jetfire throughout! Keep reading to hear a lot of unused G1 dialogue!
Transformers At The Moon has returned to posting their recently-acquired tapes of G1 cartoon audio! For the most part this video is "SOS Dinobots," featuring some great unmodulated growls and snarls from Gregg Berger, Neil Ross, and Frank Welker. But also, the video opens with a clip from "Fire In The Sky" with Starscream referring to his old friend as Jet
fire! Keep reading for the video, plus a link to the transcript of the dialogue and voice director Wally Burr's instructions!

CNN is reporting on a new real-live robot designed for use in disasters from a company in Korea. The video show what are some of the most striking features we have seen yet, for giant robot technology.
While this one is more Mech-like with a control station in the robot torso for the human pilot. The rest of the robot bears an uncanny resemblance to the classic Transfromers design. This is most evident in the arms and hands where we generally don't see very good articulation.
Watch the video below for the full look at the shape of robots to come
It's been known for a while now that a few scenes were cut from Optimus Prime's infamous charge as set to Stan Bush's "The Touch" in 1986's The Transformers: The Movie
thanks to surviving storyboards and scripts of the full sequence. Now, TFNation has posted a mockup that goes the extra mile, coloring those storyboards and adding sound effects and music to them to give a better idea of what the full sequence would've looked like. Keep reading to see!
Japanese speaking YouTube reviewer Wotafa has just released his review of Demonicus Prominon, Mastermind Creation's Nemesis Prime-themed recolor of Seraphicus Prominon, their unofficial Nova Prime. Besides being impressively large, the figure - an exclusive to the Singapore Toy, Game, & Comic Convention - sports the always attractive "Nemesis" color scheme as well as a lot
of vac-metal. Man, handle with care... keep reading to see the review!
Once again, Transformers@TheMoon has produced previously-unheard audio from their collection of Sunbow G1 cassettes! Today's episode is "Divide & Conquer," episode 6 of the original cartoon. Like "Roll For It," these tapes are devoid of processing, thus giving you the opportunity to hear the lines exactly as Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Chris Latta, and all the rest performed them. Keep reading to hear!
Transformers At The Moon has another collection of never before heard deleted audio content from the G1 cartoon. "Roll For It" is the next entry, coming in at about 8 minutes of material. No fully new scenes are contained, but there's a fair bit of expansion present, a small portion of which with audio issues, which are speculated as being a possible reason for those lines being cut. The full transcript is quite lengthy and was published separately from the Youtube video. We've copied that in the full post below for ease of viewing, so click through and enjoy! And thanks once again to Transformers At The Moon for this great piece of history!
Transformers At The Moon has put together another collection of previously unheard audio clips to share on their Youtube channel! The latest subject is "Transport To Oblivion", the first season 1 episode following "More Than Meets The Eye". Notables in this are a deleted exchange between Ironhide and Optimus about launching their ship, acknowledging the end of MTMTE pt 3, and Frank Welker's Megatron and Soundwave dialogue having no processing effects applied, giving a rare chance to hear the "real" voices of the characters. The video is embedded below, check it out!
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.
