We have some more material from the twins at Transformers @ the Moon, as they keep recovering audio from the tapes of the original generation 1 Sunbow animated series of The Transformers. This time, we look at (well, listen) to the episode Transport to Oblivion, and some extended and deleted audio in the embedded clip below - plus full transcript!



Wally Burr: Intro

*NEW* IRONHIDE: Optimus! Optimus Prime!
*NEW* IRONHIDE: All systems ready for tomorrow's launch to Cybertron!
*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: At last we can return home!
CLIFFJUMPER: Look out! Decepticons!

==============================================
WORKER NO. 1: Hey, Ed! Turn your tape player down, will ya?
WORKER NO. 2: That's not -- huh?
SOUNDWAVE: Laserbeak, prepare for flight. Operation: destruction.
*NEW* WORKER: Take cover!
*NEW* WORKER: run for it!
*NEW* WORKER: look out!
*NEW* WORKER: it's firing at us!

*NEW* LAZERBREAK:
OPTIMUS PRIME: Take Ironhide. He's hurt.
RATCHET: But Megatron's getting away!

==============================================
[In the final version Bumblebee and Spike's comments take place after Megatron's]
STARSCREAM: Your spacebridge is worthless.
BUMBLEBEE: We'd better get back to headquarters.
SPIKE WITWICKY: Right!
STARSCREAM: I will find a way to transport the cubes.
MEGATRON: You will do nothing! The vehicle just needs guidance over the spacebridge.
MEGATRON: I want a volunteer

*NEW* STARSCREAM: We only need one volunteer
*NEW* MEGATRON: Nethertheless, if that Autobot reports to his headquarters ... Prime will come to destroy the bridge!
*NEW* STARSCREAM: Then we will destroy the Autobot first!
*NEW* MEGATRON: No! I have a better plan ...
BUMBLEBEE: Decepticons! Too close for comfort. Hope Spike's okay. New, I shouldn't have left him alone.

Some more news and clips from the recovered tapes of Sunbow's The Transformers animated series, courtesy of Transformers @ The Moon, reveal further cut scenes and additional dialogue for the More Than Meets the Eye part 2 and 3 episodes of the cartoon - check them out embedded below!





****************************************
HOUND: ...it was quiet and peaceful.
SPIKE WITWICKY: You miss it?
HOUND: Sometimes. Hold tight!
*NEW* SPIKE WITWICKY: Yahoo!! Yippee!! Waaooww!
*NEW* SPIKE WITWICKY: Woah, thanks Hound that was the greatest ride I have ever had
*NEW* HOUND: My pleasure Spike. See you later, I ... better go check my coil springs
*NEW* SPIKE WITWICKY: Oh, you didn't see a cassette player laying around here did you?
*NEW* HOUND: Nope. Sorry
*NEW* SPIKE WITWICKY: That's okay. I must have left it in the ship. See'ya
SPIKE WITWICKY: Hey! what's going on here?
SPIKE WITWICKY: Who... who are you?
[Ravage snarls before being ejected, this is corrected in the final version]
RAVAGE: *snarl*
SOUNDWAVE: Ravage! Eject! Eject!
*NEW* SPIKE: *coming around*
OPTIMUS PRIME: A Decepticon! Get him!
SOUNDWAVE: Ravage!

****************************************

****************************************
[The Decepticons start a tidal wave which is noticed back at the Ark]
[NOTE: In the Ron Friedman script there is additional dialogue between Jazz and Spike which was not recorded during the session that this tape was used.]

JAZZ: Could be the Decepticons, all right. I'll tell Prime!
*NEW* PRIME: Autobots ready! To the Air!
*NEW* WORKER: Run! They're coming!
*NEW* WORKER 2: Get back!
MEGATRON: I am Megatron - leader of the Decepticons! you will do exactly as I say!
****************************************

[Act 2 starts]
****************************************
MEGATRON: Perfect. The electrical output is at its peak. Exactly where I want it. Starscream, activate the null ray.
*NEW* MEGATRON: Skywarp! Thundercracker! Transfer the electrical power
MEGATRON: Soundwave, prepare the energon cubes.
MEGATRON: Quickly, quickly!
****************************************


****************************************
[NOTE: In the scripts Wheeljack is with Bumblebee and it's Ironhide who is with Trailbreaker. During the recording session that this tape is from the characters have been changed]

IRONHIDE: Stop talkin', tighten your shock absorbers, and get in! We're gonna make a new river!
BUMBLEBEE: Let's go!
*NEW* CIVILIAN: Help! Somebody help us!
*NEW* IRONHIDE: Ready the laser, Bumblebee - I think we're gonna make it!
MAN ON ROOFTOP: Thanks, neighbours!
OPTIMUS PRIME: Autobots, to the power plant!
*NEW* SUNSTREAKER: If I can just shoot some protoglue into the cracks - maybe we can save it
*NEW* TRAILBREAKER: Seems like the Decepticons want to shoot something else! Go ahead, Sunstreaker .. I'll cover you
*NEW* SUNSTREAKER: Sure hope this works, Trailbreaker
OPTIMUS PRIME: Autobots - To the power plant!
****************************************


****************************************
CLIFFJUMPER: For someone who doesn't like to fight, heh, you're not bad, Mirage.
*NEW* MEGATRON: It's a long way down Prime!
MEGATRON: Any last words??
OPTIMUS PRIME: None you'd wanna hear, Megatron!
****************************************

NOTE: Shortly after the previous dialogue Megatron say the following lines.
MEGATRON: You fool, Starscream! Help save the Energon cubes! Get them out of here! Follow me!
NOTE: On the tape we own the line "Follow me!" is missing from this exchange.

NOTE: The tape of the recording session we own has slightly reorderd dialogue from Spike as Rumble emerges from the water. The dialogue is spaced out so that it could be cut and edited together and so we have decided not to include it within this video
SPIKE WITWICKY: Hound! Hound! You all right down there?
SPIKE WITWICKY: Hey!
*Line order swapped* SPIKE WITWICKY: Whoa!
*Line order swapped* SPIKE WITWICKY: Where's Hound?
SPIKE WITWICKY: Heelp! Heeelp!

NOTE: As Act 2 closes Megatron says the following line
MEGATRON: Who's the scrap metal now, Prime? You'll never stop me! (Laughs)
NOTE: On the tape this is then followed by the "Follow me!" cry that was missing earlier.
[ONTO ACT 3]


***************************
SPIKE: Hound! Are you down there?? *takes breath*
*NEW* HOUND: Thanks!
SPIKE: *spluttering*
HOUND: Easy, Spike. You almost flooded your engine.
***************************

[Megatron and Soundwave talk whilst a shot is fired]
***************************
MEGATRON: What was that?
*NEW* STARSCREAM: Perfecto!
MEGATRON: Starscream! What in the universe are you doing?
STARSCREAM: Testing the Energon cubes ..
***************************


***************************
SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: You know something? I like bein' a spy a lot better than workin' the oil rigs.
*NEW* TRAILBREAKER: As long as you're on the right side
SPIKE WITWICKY: Look, Dad, no hands.
TRAILBREAKER: Heheh, big deal. I'm driving!
SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: Uh-oh,
*NEW* SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: I think
SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: we've got company!
*NEW* TRAILBREAKER: Decepticons!
SPIKE WITWICKY: Can't you go any faster, Trailbreaker?
TRAILBREAKER: Sorry, this is it! I'm not built for speed!
***************************

***************************
TRAILBREAKER: It's Sunstreaker and Sideswipe!
*NEW* SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: Go get 'em Autobots!
SUNSTREAKER: Hey! That's a new paint job!
***************************

***************************
SOUNDWAVE: Enough here to power the entire planet of Cybertron.
[WALLY BURR]: Alternate for scene at 450 Soundwave
SOUNDWAVE: Enough here to power the entire planet of Cybertron.

SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: There won't be any problem, Prime. This one's for Cybertron and Earth. Let's go, Bumblebee!
*NEW* SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: Looks like they mean business
*NEW* GUARD #1: STOP! Don't come any closer
*NEW* SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: Sorry to bother you - ah - but I think I'm lost. I was looking for an animal reserve - thought it was around where somewhere.
*NEW* GUARD #2: Who are you?
*NEW* GUARD #1: Blast him!
*NEW* SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: Thanks. That was close.
BUMBLEBEE: Come on. Let's go inside.

BUMBLEBEE:It's done.
SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: Let's move it!

We have more big news in this NYCC week (end) with the official Synopsis for the third season of Robots in Disguise, which is being called "Combiner Force". This third season will begin in 2017. Here is the synopsis from comicbook.com followed by frames from this new season:


"In the Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series, Bumblebee and his team of Autobots — Grimlock, Strongarm, Sideswipe, Autobot Drift, and Fixit — have figured out how to work together. They’ve captured escaped Decepticon prisoners, defeated longstanding enemies, and defended our planet without any humans (other than their close allies Denny and Russell) knowing they’re here.

In the upcoming third season of the hit series, their ability to work together will be put to the ultimate test! The team faces a new Decepticon threat that is literally the biggest one they’ve faced: a team of five Decepticons who can combine to form a giant super robot and pulverize anything that stands in their way. The Decepticon Combiner team is set to wreak havoc on Earth, and it’s up to Bumblebee and the Autobots to stop them!

The team will discover that they, too, are more than meets the eye. The Decepticons aren’t the only ones who can combine into different bigger, more powerful forms! As sinister new forces rise in the galaxy and powerful enemies unite to bring down the Autobots once and for all, the team must not only learn how to fight when combined with one another, but to truly work as one. All their training…every captured Decepticon…every hard-fought battle…has as all been leading up to this. To emerge victorious, Bumblebee and the Autobots must become…a COMBINER FORCE!”

Machinima's Transformers Combiner Wars Episode 8 FINALE REVIEW

Seibertronians, it is time. It certainly has been a journey full of ups and downs, curves, and many, many problems. But like all other journeys this one must come to an end. The curtains are starting to close. It is time. Time to review the final episode of Machinima's Combiner Wars series.


We start with Windblade. She is floating in a Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-style afterlife dream sequence. A voice wakes her. She realizes it belongs to metroplex. He tells her that the titans have been listening to her thoughts, and don't like the anger they've seen within them.
Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Fear leads to Anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.

She apologizes for what she's done, but the titans remind her of who she truely is. She wakes up again on cybertron, because death means nothing.


And then, and then!!As if being able to take down a Combiner with a swipe of her sword or stop a friggin' BLACK HOLE WITH HER TURBINES wasn't enough for her, Windblade gets to take complete control of Metroplex! Awesome potential there for a entertaining story, right? Well...
Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
It's just his arm...That's it.

Yes, that's right. Metroplex's arm makes a surprise appearance for some reason.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Friggin' called it! Well, sorta

A quick note: Starscream's...well...screams are absolutely horrendous. Nearly unwatchable. They sound like some tormented demon baby. 

Windblade smashes the titan's limb onto starscream, grabbing hold of him so Prime and Megatron can have a clear shot.

Now comes one of the top five moments in the series: Megatron turns into a gun. Yes, not only does this Megatron have a gun mode, but he's a triple changer. There's something for everyone to enjoy. I seriously, SERIOUSLY, love this Megatron.
Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Awesome!

Prime arms himself with Megatron, taking that one final shot at Starscream, destroying him.

Optimus checks on Windblade, and is surprised to learn she's still alive. Megatron approaches with the (somehow still intact) enigma of Combination. Seriously though, if an explosion of that caliber couldn't destroy it, I find it unlikely that anything Optimus or Megatron could do would. But then again, maybe Windblade can pull out another Dues Ex Machina magic power and destroy it single-handedly.

Megatron, Prime and Windblade have a quick conversation about what to do with the Enigma, and Megatron literally mentions how he's "more than meets the eye", as the entire audience participates in a collective eye roll.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Har har har

It's decided (by pretty much just Windblade) that the Enigma belongs to the combiners, and it's presented to Victorion. She does this weird chest-merge thing with it, sort of like the Matrix of Leadership, but more gross.

The council finally reappears for one last time, just long enough for Windblade to tell them that the Titan's have returned.

But then! Just when you thought it was over, we're teased with a shot of what is presumably Fort Max's head. Yep. Seriously.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Pfft. As if.

Well, I'm sure we'll be seeing that half a year after the Titan's Return toy line ends.

And that's it. That's the end. Of the whole thing. Some final, final thoughts:

I'd like to look at pros first before I get to my usual thoughts, because I feel that the good things about this series have been kind of trampled by the band wagon hate. I'd like to bring some of those good things to a greater light.

Pros:

The art style:
Although it does occasionally have its problems, the animation and art style are very visually pleasing, and have a great feel to them. The character models are new, but inspired, and suit each character well. I know it's very attractive to many fans to have toys that look like they just came off the screen, and vice versa. This delivers tenfold in that front. You almost couldn't get closer in some cases.
The color pallets used are very attractive, rich, and occasionally stunning.
Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Like this! I want this framed!

It's very beautiful sometimes, and is a highlight of the series. I wish it would have given us some more landscape shots, where this could have really shined.

Another positive would be most of the voice acting. Megatron, Starscream and Prime are done extreme justice here, and Rodimus and The Mistress of Flame are good most of the time, save for one or two lines here and there. I also don't mind the voice of Metroplex, Devastator, or Victorion. These are all well done, and, as I've said, did great with what they were given to work with.

Speaking of Megatron, I'm not exaggerating when I say that if this isn't one of my favorite incarnations of the character, it's by far the most interesting. I love every aspect of him. He's voiced perfectly, his personality is spot on, and his triple-changer ability satisfies the TankknotGuun camp and the GuunnotTankk camp, which, in my experience, is pretty damn near impossible. Boy, Machinima, you got a lot of things wrong but when you get something right you get it right!
Outstanding job. A+.

And that brings me to my thoughts. I don't hate this series. I don't. I just don't like it, either. The middle of the series was enjoyable, good, above par, even by standards set outside of the series. But the beginning was an absolute train wreck, and the ending was a textbook Dues Ex Machina situation. I feel that if it had just done a handful of things differently, it could have been unprecedentedly good. And hey, maybe if a Titan's Return series does happen, they'll take some of the criticism in stride and make it what I know it has the potential to be.


And that is it. All eight episodes, all eight weeks. I have to say that while the programme wasn't always enjoyable, these reviews were. I hope that you all had as much fun reading them as I had writing them. And while the Combiner Wars have indeed ended, who knows, maybe I'll review Another series some day. Thanks for reading my rants and rambles, it's been a ride, for sure, and a pleasure!

Wanna relive the journey? All of the episodes are available now for free on Go90 and Machinima's YouTube channel.

And, as always, thank you for keeping it tuned to seibertron.com, your best source for Transformers news (and reviews!) on the net!
