The G1 Tapes - More Than Meets The Eye Part 1, Part 4: Body English!
RAC - Wednesday, October 05, 2016


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!

Part 4 in the series, contains additional scenes and one muffled expletive. Transcript below:

Once again, Twitter user @miiakira2017 has posted an image of their Transformers-related design work. Today, it's a classic car- the specific make, if any, eludes RAC - that would have turned into a laser pistol-wielding cowboy. Though there's a slight resemblance to 2010's Hunt for the Decepticons Scout-class Hubcap, the replies peg this as a Diaclone-era design, so well before that figure was designed and likely a coincidence. Keep reading to see!
Hobby Lobby has had a few waves now of different kinds of Transformers art stamped in to sheet metal. A new offering in this line has just recently hit, bringing some new choices. We found today two pieces featuring G1 Optimus, and Bumblebee, represented in the design of the 2006 Classics toy, at Hobby Lobby. They were priced at $18.99 each, which may seem a touch steep for something the size of perhaps a small calendar. But we can't deny the art on them look really sharp. Click through for images of both!
D3+Transformers Racing Unveils New Race Car for 2018 Competition at Petit Le Mans! The brightly colored red, black and white race car with the large Transformers Autobot shield on the nose was impressive at the highly attended press conference at the final race of the IMSA 2017 season. Read on for more info!
The @miiakira2017 Twitter account continues to share G1 design work! Today, we've got some sketches for Octane, described here in a very British way as a "Tank Lorry"; artwork for a pair of folding launcher bays designed in the Diaclone Car Robots days, and what are described as figure studies for "erasers," but don't seem to match either the Decoys or the G1 erasers that were produced - at least the US ones. Keep reading to see the images!
The younger generation needs Transformers as well. If you want your children to have Transformers that are slightly more involved than Rescue Bots, then this is the way to go.
