Transformers The Movie website back up

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on March 4, 2010 | Site Updates,Transformers The Movie (1986) |

Only this week we realised that one of our very first Transformers websites,, was down due to a mix up with the domain names. This website was originally designed and put live back in 2000, and was a website dedicated to the original 1986 animated Transformers movie.

Looking back on this website we can see how our love for putting Transformers information came about, and hope that now it’s back up that it will provide something for today’s generation of Transformers fans who have come to Transformers through the movies of Michael Bay.

Madman Complete Beast Wars and G1 Japan Sets & TFTM on Blu-ray

Written by Big Bot on May 24, 2009 | DVD,Madman,News,Transformers The Movie (1986) | Tags: ,

Transformers The Movie Blu-ray (Madman)Madman Entertainment have updated their website with details on three new DVD sets coming next month.

The first 2 sets are simply repackages of DVD sets that have already been release. There is a complete Beast Wars set, containing all three seasons and the extras and a complete Transformers Japan Generation One Complete Collection, with all Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory and Zone episodes.

The final DVD is a Blu-ray version of Transformers The Movie. The set contains all the same features as Madman’s 2 disc DVD version from 2007, but has the movie in high definition. It’s expected that this is the same master as Metrodome’s Blu-ray version.

All three sets are out on 24th June in Australia.

Stan Bush rerecords The Touch for Transformers 2

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on May 15, 2009 | Multimedia,News,Transformers The Movie (1986),Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen |

When we first heard this we have to admit, we thought it was a hoax story, or someone had got the wrong end of the stick. But now, rock legend (at least to Transformers fans) Stan Bush has re-recorded a version of the orginal 1986 Transformers Movie’s anthem ‘The Touch’ in the hope that it will be used in the new Transformers sequel, Transformers Revenge of the Fallen.

Fans of the original will know just how inspiring The Touch can be and how it always reminds them of Optimus Prime cutting a swathe through Decepticons. This new, updated, version is very different and even features a rap, but in a good way. Have a watch of the video, which features clips from both Michael Bay Transformers movies, and see what you think.

Leonard Nimoy to provide voice work for Transformers 2?

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on April 22, 2009 | News,Transformers The Movie (1986),Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen |

Could it be true? Could the man who voiced Galvatron in Transformers The Movie really be providing a voice for one of the characters in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen?

If Michael Bay has anything to do with it he will, as the two are actually related. Yup, our favourite action movie director and the pointy eared one from Star Trek are what the Americans like to call ‘kin’.

Leonard Nimoy is actually married to Michael Bay’s cousin, so the dream of having another voice actor from the original animated classic appear in the new movie could become a reality.

Michael Bay explained in an interview with MTV:

I’m still not done with all the voices

When asked about Nimoy, Bay added:

You know, he’s related to me,” laughed Bay. “And now that you are filming this, maybe you can send it to him.

[Nimoy] is married to Susan Bay, who’s a cousin to me. I just feel kind of bad about asking him. Like ‘I can’t pay you that much? But would you do this voice?

Would he do it? He suggested to my mom that he might do it.

It’s nice to know that even in Hollywood and on a multimillion dollar movie, someone still to ask their mum to ask their cousin’s husband if they’ll come out to play.

CGI Video of TFTM Optimus Prime V Megatron Fight

Written by Big Bot on January 30, 2008 | Generation One,Hasbro,News,Transformers The Movie (1986) |

As well as providing a sneak peak of the first wave of Transformers Universe toys, Hasbro have also created a cgi version of the classic fight between Optimus Prime and Megatron from Transformers The Movie.

The video, titled “They were always real to me” starts off with the original scene from the film, but suddenly changes to a modern cgi version, with all the classic set pieces from the fight, except for Hot Rod getting in the way.

The clip (1m 19s) can be found on Hasbro’s official Transformers Universe site.

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 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 for updates. All the best Metrodome
