    Transformers G1 Toy/Comic Commercials Animation

    Always loved the animation from the commercials, sometimes I felt like they were better than the animation in the actual cartoon at times. So I combined all the animation I could find ( about 55 commercials to make roughly 11 minutes of footage) I believe I have all of them except the original seekers commercial. which the copy I have is absolutely horrible so I didn't include it. IF I AM MISSING ANY ANIMATION LMK

    It's sad in a way because some of those commercials are the closest to animated portrayals some characters got.

    Just watched it without audio, much better LOL. Going to add the theme song end credits or something, but in the meantime people might just want to watch it without audio LOL

    Love those old things. Wish they could be collected and included in home releases of G1 series sets.

    Whoever animated Omega Supreme changing from base to robot really thought about how to make his transformation work without too many free-floating parts.
    And I had to smile how Blaster snuck into the Decepticon base using Soundwave's old trick of getting a dumbass to bring him inside.

    Nice idea, but i'd rather see the whole advert than a snippet. I felt like you cut them off mid advert a bit much.

    The animation blitz is really fun to watch!

    Yeah I understand what you are saying, I always love the jingles and all, BUT This was just to show the animation of all the commercials and NOT the toy parts, I have always wanted to see JUST THE ANIMATION parts put together so with that in mind, I of course cut them off mid advert , because that is where the animation cut off

    I'd never seen the Jetfire/Shockwave one before. That must be the only use of that animation model for Jetfire. Thanks for posting this!

    They sure don't make toy commercials like that anymore...

    *wipes away a tear*

    Regardless of how some of you feel about the toys and concept, the animations for the Pretenders and Action Masters were cool.
