    This is something that is truly needed . Thank you, I know it must be a ton of work

    Hope this thing gets funded

    if the fans would work together with each other on stuff like this, the fandom could produce so much

    As I am working on an original G1 cartoon story this is something that I could definitely use myself

    Sounds like a worthy project. Plus it's not asking for a ridiculously high amount so it's easily attainable.

    Speaking of G1 music, whatever came of that TF music/theme some woman was taking legal action over a while back? Or did I imagine that?

    Back in 2006, Anne Bryant, who is co-credited for the G1 theme song alongside Ford Kinder, sued Sunbow (at that point owned by German TV Loonland) for royalties.

    I... have no idea whether that might have been one of the reasons for why TV Loonland ended up in severe financial trouble and eventually sold off the rights to Hasbro's shows back to Hasbro for a laughable $7 million USD in 2008.

    Why? They aren't planning to sell the restored music or anything, as far as I can tell.

    There was no action taken when the other clips were released. If the real music ever gets released...then there would be a problem.

    I still have some of your great mixes from back in the day (the old TFW2005). Good memories.

    I think a lot of this music is on the bonus CD's with the original laserdisc sets

    I have them all, so I will have to check

    Oh hell yes. Hell fucking yes. This is one of my holy grails.

    I'm still holding out hope for a proper soundtrack release someday (yeah right! lol) but this will do.
