Coming so soon after the holiday season, did all the takes of Insecticons eating remind anyone else of A Christmas Story?

"Okay Randy, now show mommy how the piggies eat!"

And then Kickback's internal cackling veered so close to Donald Duck that it sounded like a crank call from the New York Ripper!

"Stupid! You're all so stupid! WAKHK-WAHK-WAAAAAAAAHKHKHKHK!"

Here's hoping they keep this coming all the way through The Rebirth!
(Disclaimer: I still hate that 3-parter, but would love to hear the slightest edited line that sheds light on what might have been if David Wise hadn't had to cut down his original 5-episode script)

And here's the Unfinished Animation comparison from the panel:



The unfinished production masters (which Rhino used for their remastered DVDs) are shown on the left, while the finished broadcast masters are shown on the right.


This...absolutely blew my mind.

When the cartoon was on tv, I wasn't really old enough to understand what I was seeing. The first Transformers series that I grew up enjoying was Beast Wars, and I bought the 5 Rhino DVD boxsets later to go through the original cartoon that I had missed. All this time, I thought those hilarious errors were a part of the times and added a level of natural entertainment to the series. Now, I'm finding out that what I'm watching is actually not what aired on television but actually an unfixed version of it? :lol: :lol: :lol: I'm ok with this. Will likely get the Shout Factory copies to go with my Rhino copies now, so I can make a slideshow of all the errors.

TF fan site TFAt TM have posted another installment of their absolutely incredible series of audio clips from the original G1 Transformers cartoon! Pertaining this time to the episode "Heavy Metal War" specifically, the audio gives us not only behind the scenes banter from the likes of Wally Burr, but also extended or deleted scenes! These extra bits and pieces are fascinating to listen to, and they give more context and flesh to these stories we thought we knew so well!

The folks over at TFatTM have posted the newly released audio in YouTube video format, which we've mirrored down below! Below that is a transcript of what you're hearing that highlights who's talking, as well as what's new and/or extended! For more details, visit TFatTM's article via the link above!

WALLY BLURR: We're rolling this is 700-13 from the top

** EXTENDED SCENE **

SCRAPPER: We return to our master Megatron!

FOREMAN: They're... they're with the Decepticons!

*NEW* Scavenger: I have reading Scrapper, it must be the secret entrance

*NEW* Scrapper: It's about time you did your job, Scavenger. Hook -- activate the entranceway

*NEW* HOOK: With my usual finesse, Scrapper?

*NEW* MEGATRON: You see Starscream,

MEGATRON: My Constructicons have returned to our temporary base right on schedule. They were worth the time we spent building them in these caverns.

*NEW* STARSCREAM: That remains to be seen oh mighty Megatron

MEGATRON: Scrapper, report!

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

MEGATRON: Unload and attach them to your new invention at once.

SCRAPPER: I am honoured to serve, Megatron.

*NEW* SCRAPPER: Interlock the components and synchronize the pulse linkage

MEGATRON: Soon, Starscream, soon, Scrapper's invention will give me the power to defeat the Autobots...

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: You've got us curious, Wheeljack, what's your big surprise? And what does it have to do with -- the Dinobots?

*NEW* WHEELJACK: Well, Optimus Prime, fellow Autobots, human friends Spike, Sparkplug and Chip --

*NEW* IRONHIDE: Oh, get on with it! You take longer to say something than a slow-motion mechano-mouth with the glitch!

*NEW* WHEELJACK: Uh, yes. As you know the Dinobots have always been unpredictable ... and kind of clumsy sometimes ... But I've been reprogramming them ... so just watch!

*NEW* IRONHIDE: Big deal. SO now we got us a Dinobot baseball team that eats the ball!

*NEW* CHIP: Well I'm impressed

*NEW* SPIKE: Me too, Wheeljack

*NEW* SPARKPLUG: Right! You did a good job with the big guys

*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: I'm also pleased, Wheeljack. Well done!

*NEW* WHEELJACK: Thank you, Optimus Prime. I try to do my best. Okay Dinobots ... Transform!

*NEW* GRIMLOCK: Next time. Me, Grimlock, do even better

*NEW* IRONHIDE: Hmmphtf! Now that the Dinobot beauty pageant's over maybe we can ..

IRONHIDE: Huh?! Those signals spell trouble and I'm talking Decepticons!

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

SPIKE WITWICKY: Looks like just one, Dad. One's one too many when it's Megatron!

*NEW* CLIFFJUMPER: I got the speed so follow my lead!

*NEW* IRONHIDE: Okay, So you're faster, Cliffjumper -- But Iim tough!

*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: Bumblee -- Take out friends out of danger!

*NEW* BUMBLEBEE: You heard Optimus. Let's go!

WHEELJACK: Let's see how he likes my new shock-blast cannon! Uhh! Hhh... that's a shock, all right.

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

MEGATRON: I have come to talk, not fight, Optimus Prime.

OPTIMUS PRIME: Autobots, hold your fire!

*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: Megatron wish to confer... he says

*NEW* MEGATRON: Perhaps you will do me the courtesy of hearing me out before you doubt me?

OPTIMUS PRIME: Very well. Speak, Megatron.

MEGATRON: I come about a matter of Cybertron law, Optimus Prime. Our war has gone on for millions of years -- Decepticons fighting Autobots

*NEW* MEGATRON: with no end or victory in sight

*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: A sad but unavoidable truth so long as you seek to dominate the universe.

*NEW* MEGATRON: Nuy Cybertron Law may provide a solution to our seeming dilemma. I refer to the age-old code of combat

MEGATRON: in which opposing leaders -- you and I, Optimus Prime -- may do battle. The loser must exile himself and his army to deep space for eternity. The winner may stay where he chooses. Do you have the courage for that?

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

MEGATRON: I now have the strength of all my Decepticons.

*NEW* MEGATRON: The unsuspecting Optimus Prime is as good as beaten! (laughs)

*NEW* STARSCREAM: With all due respect, Megatron -- I suggest you not celebrate your victory prematurely ... as there might be one flaw in your otherwise flawless plan.

*NEW* MEGATRON: And what might that be, "loyal" Starscream?

STARSCREAM: The Autobots' computer, Teletraan 1... if it detects your deception, it will alert Optimus Prime.

MEGATRON: It won't!

*NEW* MEGATRON: Teletraan 1 has already been accounted for in my master plan.

MEGATRON: Scrapper, you and the others have your orders. Constructicons, transform!

*NEW* MEGATRON: I chose these caverns as a temporary base because of their nearness to Autobot Headquaters.

MEGATRON: While all the Autobots are assembled to watch my combat with Optimus Prime, my Constructicons will tunnel their way beneath those headquarters, then enter the control room and destroy Teletraan 1! (Laughs) Optimus Prime won't know what hit him! (Laughs)

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

OPTIMUS PRIME: The code specifies a fair battle, Spike. Under those rules I'm confident I can beat Megatron.

*NEW* IRONHIDE: And if Megatron tries anything cute, we'll rotate his circuits!

*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: No, Ironhide. The law of Cybertron must be obeyed and Autobot honour must be preserved. I will fight Megatron alone. I have given my word.

OPTIMUS PRIME: Besides, if he does not abide by the rules, Teletraan 1 will tell us.

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

*NEW* CHIP: According to my calculations, you shouldn't have much trouble Optimus. Your strength is far greater than Megatron's.

*NEW* SPIKE: Stomp him good, Optimus! He's had it coming for a long, long time.

*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: I will do my best not to fail you -- the other Autobots -- or the Earth.

*NEW* SPIKE: I know you won't! You're not a quitter!

*NEW* SPARKPLUG: Hey, guys, I think we're here!

OPTIMUS PRIME: Autobots, transform!

IRONHIDE: Okay, we're here! Where's the opposition?

CHIP CHASE: That answer your question, Ironhide?

*NEW* STARSCREAM: Without our power chip rectifiers we're lucky we can still fly, Megatron!

*NEW* MEGATRON: I wouldn't want you walking to the show, that might tip our hand!

*NEW* STARSCREAM: You will remember to return our chips ounce you've used them against Optimus Prime, won't you?

*NEW* IRONHIDE: Strange -- some of those crumbs usually like to show off by changing to their jetplane modes.

*NEW* RATCHET: No biggie, Ironhide. They probably don't want to take the spotlight away from Megatron.

MEGATRON: Hail Optimus Prime, and welcome to defeat!

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

*NEW* CHIP: Give it to him!

SPARKPLUG WITWICKY: Go, Optimus!

STARSCREAM: And the use of my null ray, too.

*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: He never .. did that before!

*NEW* RATCHET: This doesn't print out right! How'd Megatron get so versatile?

*NEW* SPARKPLUG: C'mon, Optimus! You can do it!

SKYWARP: You should see me do that when I've got my power chip.

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

IRONHIDE: Way to go, Prime! You're not down yet!

*NEW* MEGATRON: Foolish move. I knew you were going to do that!

*NEW* WHEELJACK: Megatron read Prime's thoughts just like Soundwave!

MEGATRON: (Laughs) You cannot blast what you cannot see!

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

SPIKE WITWICKY: I can't believe it.

CHIP CHASE: Optimus Prime... beaten by Megatron.

*NEW* RATCHET: Prime's gonna need repairs, Wheeljack

OPTIMUS PRIME: Ohhhh...

SPIKE WITWICKY: He's functional

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

SCRAPPER: There's Teletraan 1! For Megatron, destroy it!

*NEW* LONGHAUL: *Dialogue missing*

*NEW* SCRAPPER: Then fight! But remember -- the computer is our main objective!

SLUDGE: Sludge not see these Decepticons before.

SNARL: Not see again, either, because we dynamite them to pieces!

*NEW* SWOOP: Let's finish 'em fast!

*NEW* BONECRUSHER: Blast him! Reduce him to metallic dust!

HOOK: It's bad news, Scrapper. They've brought out the heavy artillery.

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EXTENDED SCENE **

SPIKE WITWICKY: Hey... check that out! What is it?

*NEW* SLAG: Dinobots no fool around!

IRONHIDE: Our Dino-buddies! We gotta help!

*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: No, Ironhide! Remember the law!

*NEW* MEGATRON: That's right -- you must keep your honor ... and obey the law!

*NEW* STARSCREAM: We could join the battle -- if we still had out powers.

*NEW* MEGATRON: My Devastator needs to help in vanquishing these Dinoboy oafs

IRONHIDE: Uhh... sorry about that.

** EXTENDED SCENE **



** EFFECTS AND ADDITIONAL LINE **

WALLY: Okay, let's have all the Autobots say "let's go to it", here we go 1, 2,3

AUTOBOT SFX

WALLY: Humans .. mix in with that, the same thing, humans at 155 and ...

AUTOBOT SFX

*NEW* OPTIMUS PRIME: I have a plan to defeat that giant robot.

DEVASTATOR: Nothing defeats the Devastator! Nothing!

You know, if Megatron had turned into his jet mode like he was originally going to in this episode, I bet more people would have been more receptive of the non-gun altmodes that G1 Megatron's newer toys would get over the years.

I think it was an interesting idea but glad that it didn't make the cut. It's just too much to tack on their power chip rectifiers. I think mostly they did a really good job editing the episodes down to 22 mins. But nonetheless I really enjoy listening to these extended clips / behind the scene stuff. Thanks again, At the Moon!

Megatron's nixed temporary jet-mode reminds me of his Titans Return toy, both have the fusion cannon underneath.
