Not quite the same as an official release, but for those seeking digital versions there are options available... This guy on YouTube seems to have a lot of the G1 soundtrack pieces in fairly robust quality:

Browse the videos to find the ones you like and illegally download then rip them to mp3 to whatever extent your evil, criminal hearts desire!

All 4 seasons have already been released online last year. It was some kind of kickstarter project. They were all remastered with the sounds and voices removed by some type of music production software. They sound great. No record required. I highly recommend.

And just to satisfy all the ethics hawks on here, I believe the kickstarter funds went to the production costs. No profit. Just a free download for all fans paid for by a small generous group of fans. So nobody should feel guilty about owning it.

That makes me wonder, cos the YouTube-guy I provided the link for seems to have random selections of only the first three G1 series and some dubious Transformers-related video game tracks. If you have another source with a more complete selection, I'd love to hear more about it!

Crap, I find out about this now? Ugh..
Are they gonna offer some digital downloads of this or what?
I've tweeted and emailed people about releasing this! It finally happens and I miss it..
Talk about a lack of publicity... how many of these did they make? 500... C'mon! *They made 1000.. should've done 10x this amount and limited multiple purchases more.

For those who missed out on the vinyl release of the Transformers Generation 1 soundtrack that went up for sale on March 9th (it sure sold out quick!), we have some great news to share! Enjoy the Ride Records has announced, via their Facebook and Twitter pages, that they have received permission to run a repress of the LP, to be released around "summer (or before)".

Check out a couple of our previous articles on the soundtrack here and here for more specific details on the previous release (including the track-list if you were curious!), and look below for the announcement by Enjoy the Ride! Did you miss out last time and is this repress exactly what you were hoping for? Does the concept of the G1 soundtrack released on vinyl appeal to you? Let us know what you think below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more news as it comes!

For those who missed out on the first pressing of our #Transformers TV soundtrack release, we are very sorry about the frustration & that we underestimated demand BUT we are happy to announce that we just got the go ahead on a REPRESS! Hopefully In hand by the summer (or before) but of course will keep the fans updated as things progress. We sincerely thank everyone for your interest & support!
