@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 09:03 AM)

Yeah, I might've forgotten that the Beast is pretty much just a mindless killing machine. That's pretty much what I get for going off of the TFWiki summaries without having actually read any of it.

@  tffan01 : (15 October 2017 - 08:34 AM)

@Onyxstrike Well, to be fair, the quality of the story aside, Beast Within illustrates the fact that Dinobots are feral in nature, with what would happen if they actually lost control. That's a character flaw in a way, correct? 

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Send me a PM if you need help getting to the true ending, also.

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:15 AM)

Thinking about quirky robots occupies 30% of my brain's daily processing power. I can't remember birthdays and I never know where my phone is, but it's totally worth it.

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:03 AM)

Yay, I look forward to your dealings with quirky robots!

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:01 AM)

Definitely, I started setting aside funds a month ago for the inevitable Black Friday digital sales in the Playstation and Xbox stores. Going to be ready this year, and that's one of the many games on my list!

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 07:30 AM)

Hey Strafe will you ever play Nier: Automata?

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

Plus, The Beast Within is overall not a very good story.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

The problem is is that Victory's dreams are meant to prey on the Dinobot's character flaws. For instance, Grimlock downing every Decepticon in his path, but falling for Starscream's begging for mercy schtick, preys on his arrogence. What character flaws does The Beast Within prey on? Nothing. The entire premise of the book was to please the many fans who posed the many hypothetical "What if the Dinobots combined?" scenarios way back when, with a gratuitous death count to boot.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 05:51 AM)

What's wrong with wanting it to be a canon dream sequence?

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! :)

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.
