It is only a matter of time till the fans step in and do things as we would like to see them. Sorry Robot Chicken, the jokes and potty humor are worth a laugh, but THIS is serious! Thanks to The Lazy Eyebrow Reviewer channel on Youtube in collaboration with OptimusTimelord's Masterpiece ReAnimated channel, we have a glorious look at the original Transformers Season 1 Intro. Re-made as a stop motion animation using actual toys! This is so delicious, you will want to watch the video below, again and again.
Transformers At The Moon
has posted the latest in their series of deleted audio and extended scenes from the original 1984 The Transformers
cartoon series! This time, they've got over ten minutes' worth of dialogue from "Heavy Metal War," featuring the first appearance of the Constructicons. Keep reading to see the video along with a transcript of the dialogue.
It's an interesting time we live in where a mix of Youtube, consumer-accessible 3D printing, and people who are good at building things who also still love the toys from their childhood can all come together and show us something really cool. In today's example, we have a 15 minute video showing the design and construction of a giant replica of Optimus Prime's rifle, estimated by the builder to be about 50% of its "real" size. And it has lights and sounds! At four feet long it looks more like an Optimus Prime bazooka, but it's a cool process to see take place. We've got the video embedded below, and you'll definitely want to check this one out!
Transformers At The Moon
is continuing to release their collection of original G1 audio recordings, this time moving onto the episode "A Plague of Insecticons"! As is typical of these tapes, you've got the late Wally Burr providing voice direction - and a number of lines that didn't end up in the final episode. Keep reading for the video and a transcript!
Sunrise doesn't last all morning, but Tatsunoko can keep going for a pretty long time at 8fps it seems like. The final episode of Titans Return
, "All Things Must Pass," is now up on go90. Keep reading for a link to the episode!
It's been a little while, but the TF @ The Moon team has once again released some lost studio recording audio from the G1 cartoon for everyone to enjoy. The latest samples come from The Ultimate Doom part 3, and the followup episode Countdown to Extinction. Of special note, Countdown to Extinction features a few Optimus Prime lines done by a fill-in in place of Peter Cullen, who sounds a lot like Chris Latta to us. These lines were obviously never meant for broadcast, and are another rare inside look at some of the technical side of the making of the old cartoon. Both videos are embedded below and are definitely worth a listen!
As the new year begins, old business nears its end. In this case, the penultimate episode of Titans Return,
the middle leg of Machinima's Prime Wars Trilogy
cartoons. This is titled "The Consumed" and we haven't watched it yet. If you want to, it's up on go90 now! Keep reading for a link.
Meanwhile, this is what Hasbro thinks of people in our age group: Episode 8 of Titans Return
, Machinima's adult-oriented Transformers animated series, is up on go90 today! This episode is entitled 'In Good Hands,' and that's all we know because we haven't watched it yet. Keep reading for a link!
It's time! Machinima's Titans Return
series, the sequel to their much talked-about Combiner Wars
cartoon, has begun its run on go90 with two episodes, "Aftermath and Rebirth" and "Our Heroes Respond." What's changed and what's as you'd expect from watching Combiner Wars
? Only one way to find out: keep reading for links to the episodes!
A couple years ago,
we reported on something then known as "The Transformers Experience" that was being promised by Victory Hill Exhibitions. That project seems to now be taking shape as Transformers: Autobots Alliance,
and we've found clips of the voice cast, the making of the score with composer Ram Khatabakhsh, and even a look at the CGI model of Primus that will figure into the event. Keep reading for more!
One more video from our Hascon VIP Dinner Event reporter, Eric Crownover. He captured the special presentation videos shown before the Hall of Fame inductions of Susan Blu and movie series producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. One was a minutes-long collection of congratulations and well wishes from celebrities and notable individuals in the world of movies, the other was 30 seconds of Arcee clips. We'll let you sort out which presentation went with which person, and then you can click through to watch the video embedded below!
If you ever wanted to see just how talented scratch-builders and prop and model makers were, we have an example that's both impressive and Transformers-relevant for you today. Odin Makes on Youtube has a new episode featuring the classic Matrix of Leadership, showing (more or less) each step along the way in going from basic materials to finished, painted, light-up Autobot Plot Device - and it takes less than 15 minutes to get there! ...Unless you're Odin and then it probably actually took many labor-hours. Check out the video embedded below to see the process and results!
has posted his videos from the TFNation 2017 panel on the G1 episode "Heavy Metal War"! In these videos - timed to go along with the live presentation at the con - storyboards are compared to the final animation, the differences between that animation and the error-filled rough cuts are shown, and a series of extended and deleted scenes are reconstructed with a combination of the recently-discovered G1 dialogue tapes and the storyboards! Keep reading to see!
Facebook page has posted videos from ACGHK, one of the major Hong Kong shows! The videos below show off the Hasbro booth among other things, which details most of this year's Titans Return offerings up through wave 5 along with Transformers: The Last Knight
and a look at this year's SDCC exclusives. And a lot more Transformers-related videos from the show, so keep reading to see!
Rather than episode content, Transformers At The Moon has posted a rather ...unique... entry from their collection of studio recording tapes from the production of the G1 cartoon. "Laserbeak Library Sounds" is much as the name would imply, a collection of various Laserbeak vocalizations which presumably can be dropped in for any occasion in a given episode. In the meantime, you get to hear around 4 minutes of Chris Latta sounding like he's getting tortured, at the direction of Wally Burr! The video is embedded below, so check it out!
