Happy 30th to the G1 cartoon!
agreed, this is a really good day.
Happy 30th anniversary to the G1 cartoon.
Which I still enjoy watching sometimes.
the more the reason to continue G1 reissues
Masterpieces of original G1 figures is a start (hope they will announce g1 megs and real car licensed TFs soon like Tracks and avoid futuristic remakes like star saber which was a power ranger style toy chunck in its days).
For the 30th anniversary, where a the g1 reissues for the geewun lovers ?! (Scorponok, Thrust, Trypticon, Dinobots -what a missed opportunity)
Overall, most releases suck nowadays (i look at you faketransformer leader jetfire; AoE toys; upcoming ugly desgined combiners menasor & superion)
1. It isn't even the 30th anniversary of the brand in japan yet, let alone the cartoon so any special reissues are unlikely at this point.
2. Starsaber was picked by Japanese fans where he is veeeeery popular.
3. Those combiners were mistransformed prototypes, I mean seriously, they were literally glued together in static poses so they wouldn't fall apart.
Otherwise I pretty much agree with the rest of your post.
I also remember the premier of tf in '84. It doesn't seem like its been 30yrs. There's just something magical about robots in disguise, hiding in plain sight on our planet. Through all the highs and lows, I'm proud to be a tf fan, and a member our community here at tfw! Tillallareone
Is it too late to schedule a G1 MTMTE watch along with everyone? I think that would be a blast!
But real geewun lovers just buy originals anyway
I've actually been surprised by most of the AOE toys. Sure, the movie left a lot to be desired, but the generations figures are pretty neat. I'll definitely wait to pass judgment on Skyfire and the combiners till I have them in hand. Here's to another 30 years!
This is the probably the one franchise where I've been part of the fandom since its inception, since I was a tiny tot.
Transform and roll out!
Happy anniversary Transformers and Hasbro! Here's 30 more years!
The first time I saw a g1 episode, it was a VHS tape with, a prime problem and city of steel on it. A year or so after that I got another with starscream's brigade and autoburserk. I probably watched them both over a hundred times before I got the DVD sets.
Still got Arrival from Cybertron on VHS up in the loft. Don't think I'll ever part with it, signifies happy childhood memories and the thing that got me into Transformers.
Happy 30th Birthday, 1st episode!!
'Prime told me there'd be days like this.......'
As someone who was front and center in my living room as a child to see these first episodes which made up the inaugural reveal for Transformers, I will say Happy Birthday television version of my favorite franchise!
30 years since I was sitting in my folks living room watching the first episode? Geez I feel old
But if 7 year old me had a time window pop open and could see 37-year old me's collection...
I would pay good money to see the look on not only my 4 year old self's face, but also my parents' faces :}
I missed the early 1984 Transformers episodes, but I remember a classmate telling me to check out UHF channel KRRT-35 for the new cartoon at 3:30 pm. The only channels I knew on the UHF dial (remember those?) were Spanish channels & public access ones, but then something spectacular was about to begin! From that point on, I'd run home from school every day to hopefully not miss a minute of G1 goodness. Not long after that, my Dad bought me my first Transformer, a red Bumblebee from a quick run to the grocery store (which became the first of many TFs to come). It really was a revelation and the beginning of a fantastic, fun, & memorable time of my childhood!
Besides automatically waking up early on Saturday mornings for "cartoon day", Transformers was the first show I deliberately followed with dedication; ah, so much joy & excitement, so much fun! Congratulations Hasbro/Takara-Tomy/Sunbow you've had me hooked 30 years!
Thanks for reminding me I'm so ancient. It was a quite a jog down our long drive way that day from the school bus to make sure I didn't miss the first episode.
AND it's also my birthday! WOOHOO!!!
We would be GODS to our younger selves! Imagine, not just having the characters, but having fully articulated Classics/3P versions?! The great thing about loving kids' stuff is having adult money gets you (almost) everything you want!!
