Latest Metrodome Newsletter

Metrodome have sent out their latest newsletter giving details on Masterforce, Victory, TFTM 20th Anniversary Edition and Sci-fi Cult Legends.

Dear Transformers fans,

We thought it was time we dropped you a line with some news on Transformers to light up the rest of your 2007, and we�re pleased to say that we�ve got plenty of good news. First up we want to tell you about an up and coming title called �Cult Sci Fi Legends�, a new collection from Metrodome that features three hours of classic animation. Not only does it feature two newly subtitled episodes from Transformers Victory that have never been released in the West, it also features classic episodes from Visionaries, Inhumanoids, Shadow Raiders, Bucky O Hare and Transformers � �More than meets the eye�. We�ve put this together to give Transformers fans a chance to sample some other revolutionary visions of science fiction, as well of course to give you a sneak preview of Transformers Victory � the final collection in the Takara series that�s being released in August this year. We believe that this collection brings forward titles from a time when writers and artists were willing to put �formula� aside and truly step into the unknown, all these properties made concerted efforts to push the boundaries of imagination and style � and that�s why they�ve become cult classics decades later. So whether you just want to indulge your nostalgia or discover some new worlds � we heartily recommend this collection to you. And all this is available for the frankly fantastic price of just £7.99 (inc p&p) from play.com. The collection is released on June 26th. In other news – as many of you have heard, we�ve had to move our Masterforce release to July 3rd, but in the next few days we�ll send you details on the extras, full artwork and the chance to download the first episode absolutely free! At the moment we�re hard at work finishing the subtitles on Victory and working on our forthcoming 20th anniversary release of Transformers The Movie, more news to come � but keep checking the forums at www.transformersdvd.com for updates. All the best Metrodome

Metrodome DVD Update

Chris McFeely has posted a update he received from Metrodome

Transformers The Movie – Reconstructed’ will be released on 29th August 2005. We’re going back to the original picture negative and doing a brand new telecine. It will be 16 9 Widesceen Anamorphic, but will have curtains as the viewable image is 1.33 1 and 1.78 1 and it changes scene by scene. We wanted to give the fans the maximum possible Transformer image. Everything the laminators drew will be visible and this will be the first time anyone, anywhere would have seen the whole movie in its original form. It should be quite something”.

“There is no convenient way to refer to this non-standard format of film transfer. However the process we applied can be described thus

35mm film has a native aspect ratio of 1.33 1.

This particular 35mm negative had been shot by several different animators using various size gates, therefore the framing is inconsistent.

In order to respect the full film frame and place it within the wide screen video format of 16 9, the telecine was set-up to create an anamorphic transfer which results in a side curtained 1.33 image within a 1.78 ratio.

Due to the inconsistent framing within the negative the image size changes from shot to shot.

The resulting master preserves the entire field of potential viewable negative.”

“‘Transformers Takara Headmasters’ will be released in a 4 disc box set on 26th September. This will have brand new English subtitles and the original English dub so you can watch it in whatever way you want.”
