Generation 1
Nominate Transformers 'More than Meets the Eye' to the National Film Regisry
galaxystar - Tuesday, January 18, 2011


The Library of Congress has the National Film Registry where they take the best films (at least 10 years old) selected by the public and the library for what they say is “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". They will seriously consider the number of public votes when deciding on a piece for the registry. Cartoons are on the list. Since the 3-part 'More than Meets the Eye' series does qualify, all you have to do is email the registry and ask them to consider the Transformers More than Meets the Eye 3-part cartoon series that started the Transformers universe. Be sure to include the year that the series first aired at http://www.loc.gov/film/vote.html

"Google Alerts" lets me know whenever the National Film Registry is mentioned in the media or on the web so I can track how well we're communicating our message. Gotta love the Internet. Donna Ross Library of Congress National Film Registry

Ok, so More Then Meets the Eye is out, and The Movie, is in.

I think Transformers: The Movie would be appropriate for the National Film Registry. This year is also the 100th birthday of President Ronald Reagan, without whom we wouldn't even have Transformers.

Not that I don't appreciate her taking the time to clarify but how did Ms. Ross even know about this thread? The Government doesn't have it's thumb in a lot of pies. It has it's thumb in EVERY pie! I used to think the conspiracy nuts were just that: nuts. Oh what a fool I was...... read more

Thank you for the clarification on the matter. That should reduce confusion.

The Library of Congress hopes to assemble in the not-too-distant future a National Television Preserv... read more

All the films you see on that list have already been selected and are in the registry's vault rooms. What's Opera, Doc?, since it's on the list, has its honored place. What the public gets to do is select films to add to the list. Besides More than Meets the Eye, you can suggest o... read more

More Generation 1 News
Looks like the Autobot leader will be joining this year's Hallamark holiday tree ornaments offering this year. We knew about the Soundwave and Last Knight Hot Rod, but the addition of the Generation 1 styled Optimus Prime is a little bit of a surprise, literally. As this one seem to be scaled down a bit from the previous edition.
Imaginarium Art posted a new teaser to Facebook for a future statue project, keeping up a constant pace of releases under development. The newest subject of their attention? Why, none other than Galvatron! The silhouette is unmistakable, and it may imply an interesting display base. Galvatron's shadow is planted atop the shape of Cybertron, so the resulting display piece may itself be Galvatron standing atop the planet. Unknown right now when we'll see more out of this development, but the prototype stage ought to be interesting when they're ready to share it!
Imaginarium recently shared a shot of the upper body of their upcoming Devastator statue, showing off the general styling and detail level. Tonight they've continued downward, revealing the lower half of the body with a look at the legs and a considerable chunk of the base environment the statue stands on. Sadly these are not separate cuts of the same image in order to piece them back together - or I would have - but you can still get a good sense of the overall product between them. Click through for the mirrored image!
Three A, makers of high end - and high price - action figures including a range of licensed Transformers figures has revealed a new entry tonight, exclusive to ThinkGeek. Ultra Magnus is a redeco of the Optimus Prime figure, naturally in the unarmored cab-robot form. Its features are more or less the same as the Optimus figure it's derived from, including basic accessory loadout. ThinkGeek's price is just about $400 and they're accepting orders for the new Ultra Magnus right now. Click through to see the promo photos and a link to the product page.
Pop Culture Shock Collectibles is pleased to announce we have now secured a licensing agreement with Hasbro Inc. We are excited about the opportunity to team with Hasbro in creating collectibles based on characters from properties like TRANSFORMERS, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, MAGIC: THE GATHERING, G.I. JOE and MY LITTLE PONY to name a few. Stay tuned for further details!
