We first reported on the new Netflix 80s nostalgia grab show The Toys That Made us back in January. The series will see 8 focused episodes, each on a different franchise from the last century (yep; millennium too) including Star Wars, Hello Kitty, Lego, Star Trek, GI Joe, Masters of the Universe, Barbie and of course, Transformers.

In June, we then reported that site owner Ryan Yzquierdo will be featuring in the Transformers episode, which will air at some point after the start of the series on December 22nd. Is this post bringing us any new information? Not really, no. Consider it a reminder of some expansion to the Seibertron.com presence in popular media, as Ryan will be featuring alongside comics creator Bob Budiansky, voice legend Peter Cullen, other collectors in the Transformers fandom, and many more! Will you be tuning in?

The page is unclear about that. They say yes to people who asked about Germany, Canada, UK and US. Not seen anyone ask about Australia, Japan, or South American countries. So not sure!


OH WAIT: World wide wherever there is Netflx we will be!! THX!!

Should be interesting, if only to hear how one pronounces "Yzquierdo" :-P

I feel like Bob Budiansky is collectively our dad and he's always disappointed in us. That's just what his face says.



Meanwhile, Peter Cullen is everyone's awesome uncle that shows up once or twice a year with cool stories and presents.

LOL! It's pronounced "es - key - are - doe", or how I say it to people over the phone "the letter S, 'key' as in door key, the letter R, and 'dough' as in pizza doe (or 'doe' as in a female deer). :KREMZEEK:

I am very excited to be a part of The Toys That Made Us. It looks like an amazing show for collectors and fans of these very cherished brands that have had such a huge impact on all of our lives and brought people together from all over the world. It was a really neat experience that I was originally very timid about. Can't wait to see this! :D

I'm excited for this, and Congrats again Ryan! I'm a bit confused on the "...sometime after the premiere" part though ... Netflix usually releases all its episodes of a particular series on the same day...Is this not the case with this series?

They do, but as we were given no direct information on this, I wanted to err on the safer side.
It may very well be that all 8 episodes are released at the same time, of course. :D

I'm nervicited about seeing it! Hope I did well and represented the fan community well. The crew made me feel very comfortable. I was in the zone ... aka "Podcast Mode".

A handful of the crew there that day were from the group making the show, and the rest were hired local talent from the Chicagoland area who were manning cameras, setup, etc. I thought that was interesting. I would have figured they would have had a whole crew flying or driving around to different locations, which was probably more reasonable. Never gave that much thought to the behind-the-scenes of a documentary entertainment show like this before, so it surprised when I found that out.

By the end of the day, the host had really impressed me with his knowledge of the brand as well as how comfortable he made me feel. He even provided me with opportunities to correct myself if something was said in error or if I was tongue-tied. His level of education about the brand, specifically the behind-the-scenes stuff with Hasbro, Budiansky, and others, really impressed me. Even though I don't think he was a Transformers fans himself, he had definitely done his homework and research and wasn't reading off a script.

One of the hardest things to do when I was doing this was reusing the questions asked in my responses (i.e. "What's your favorite Transformers toy?" and then I'd have to say "My favorite Transformers toy is ..." instead of just the answer). It seems like it'd be easy to do, and maybe with some more practice it would be, but for my first time around it was a challenge, but I think I did pretty good with it. Sort of felt like a different version of Jeopardy at some point. ;)

Is Brian a member here on Seibertron.com? Just wanted to say thanks to him! I'm quite flattered and very humbled by this. I really hope I represented the fandom well. Hopefully editing takes care of any issues. This is the first time I'll be seeing it! Fingers crossed!



(psst ... it's "say ber tron") ;)

We have some more news about the upcoming Netflix documentary The Toys That Made Us, starting on December 22nd worldwide (wherever Netflix is present, we're told) - but only the first four episodes will be released on opening day! Each episode will last between 40 and 50 minutes, and focus on one of the eight franchises chosen by the show creators to illustrate the 1980s toys and their legacy to this day, from a predominantly US perspective.

The official Facebook page has uploaded a couple of shots to illustrate the series, in terms of items shown-off during the episodes and general promotion, and their official page over on Netflix has uploaded a trailer for the first half too, featuring Barbie, Masters of the Universe, GI Joe, and Star Wars. The other four, Lego, Hello Kitty, Star Trek and Transformers, will be released at a later date. Stay tuned to find out more - as we're obviously excited to have Seibertron himself feature in one of the episodes* in person!

[quote]Here's our latest official artwork! Fun fact: Both of these vehicles are from the personal collection of Brian Volk-Weiss, the creator of #TTTMU! Don't miss the first four episodes, out 12/22 on Netflix![/quote]





*yes, the Hello Kitty one.

boo! j/k....Well I am a little disappointed, but I've noticed Netflix doing this a little more lately with other shows. They enable people to "binge", and then are slowly taking that away from them. Well while I personally collected MOTU, I am excited for that one. I never collected SW or GI Joe toys, but am heavy into the lore...I guess they wanted to save the best for last ;)^

Just an educated guess which could be totally wrong, but I'll throw in my prediction for February to have the second round of 4 episodes available.
