@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

One downside is that music by Johnny Douglas won't be featured, but from what Rob told me, it seems only the generic rock-disco theme will be left out as that was done for Spider-Man. Apparently Johnny left the show very early on so few themes that he composed specifically for Transformers ended up being reworked by Rob.

 

All in all, over a decade of legal hassle, we're FINALLY getting this stuff! :)

So what's missing, then? "Generic rock-disco" meaning the stuff Jazz used to play with his speaker powers?

Yeah, that's the one. Here's what he told me:

No, unfortunately those tracks won't be included. There were a few cues Johnny wrote that were used, but the music for the series was revamped when I came on right at the beginning, and nearly every cue was mine in those shows, although the credits were messed up in post. I wrote perhaps 15 hrs total of new music in creating the shows. He did write the My Little Pony theme, and did some great orchestration on it. He was a talented writer.


Note that he's speaking for the shows in general, not just Transformers.

All right! I really like the BGM in the G1 'toon. Animation as a whole has improved by leaps and bounds since 1985, but they sure don't score TV cartoons with full orchestras anymore.

It. Is. About. Time.

Perhaps more than any character moment or episode, it was the music that stayed with me most firmly from the G1 cartoon. Which is a pretty neat thing considering I saw it so sporadically. I can't wait!

Much agreed. While I'm slightly more excited for the MLP portion of this, really looking forward to the instrumentals getting released.

I can't help but feel this news would have been even better announced at Botcon a few days ago.

 

The Generic Rock-Disco Theme makes me nostalgic for Inspector Gadget music.

Great news. G.I. Joe was an earlier series than Transformers though and may have had a lot more Johnny Douglas score, including almost every cue that used the main theme. I know I've seen people who claim M.A.S.S. Device was entirely scored by Douglas. That aired right before Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends Season 3 in 1983. Then the next Joe series and the first Transformers series debuted in 1984 at the same time. That M.A.S.S. Device music was re-used frequently throughout the series. When you say that "only the rock disco theme" from Spider-Man might not be included, does that mean the other Douglas scoring from G.I. Joe WILL be released?

 

Is it realistic we're going to get 15 hours of music released? I do think that total probably includes everything Walsh did beyond these 4 core series, like D&D, Inhumanoids, etc.

 

I also wonder how they'll handle the re-used tracks. Joe and Transformers shared a lot of tracks. Will they be repeated on two different albums, or just put with the series they appeared in first, if that can even be determined? Or will this all be a generic Hasbro set that does not associate tracks with specific shows?

Yup. You can hear its very first use here:
http://www.dailymoti...m/video/x2j9ojz
 
Fast forward to 2:16.
 
And it wouldn't be until "Auto-Bop" the theme was used so heavily as in this episode:
http://www.dailymoti...town_shortfilms
 
:)

The way I understood, his only themes that'll be included are the ones that Rob reworked. I'm only sure about the generic rock-disco theme as that one was done before Rob began working for Marvel/Sunbow productions.
