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 https://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

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

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

Just in form Toy Fair 2018, we have news of two new Transformers figures from Flame Toys. What appear to be non-transforming editions of Optimus Prime and Starscream. These look a lot like the designs we saw from their Kuro Kara Kuri Drift with extended articulation and weapons. Update: these are said to be offered as model kits that you assemble yourself. No word on their price and release date at this time. Read on to see the images of both figures.
Coming to us throw Dengeki Hobby, we have the first reveal of an upcoming Masterpiece exclusive. MP-17+ follows along the likes of red Alert and Sideswipe as an "anime" colors version of Masterpiece Prowl. The deco is most distinctly different with the blue tint to the windows as well as more simplified markings to be better in line with how the character was represented in the cartoon. Along with that, this release will include the shoulder rocket accessories that were previously a bonus item for purchasing through a specific Japanese retailer. MP-17+ Prowl appears to be a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive, due for release in September. Click through to see the photos!

Just about everyone into Transformers knows Optimus Prime's iconic Ion Blaster weapon that his been with from the beginning. How cool would it be if you could have one that you can hold in your hands, just like the Autobot Leader? Thanks to Bob Clagett, the man behind "I Like To Make Stuff" channel on YouTube. He has done what many can only dream of. He's 3D printed a GIANT-sized Optimus Prime Ion Blaster rifle that looks pretty darn good! Taking advantage of modern 3D printers he was able to reproduce the G1 rifle he can hold in his hands.
