    I finally had the time to dig out the turntable and give it a listen. Amazing. Hearing it without watching a picture, or with characters talking over it, it was just me and the music. I never watch a CD spin, or a cassette unspool, but man I was transfixed by that record, I connected with the music in a way I never do. I totally get why they released it on vinyl now. Could very well be my most memorable Transformers-related experience of the year.

    Isn't there any place I could sample the tracks? The song titles tell me nothing about what tracks are actually included, much less the sound quality.

    I'm interested in knowing if anyone has had the opportunity to make FLAC audio files from their vinyl discs?

    Thank you for posting this!
    Wow, that theme song does sound weird. Definitely sounds like the original studio recording, though, before it was finalized for broadcast.
    But good to hear some of this stuff. I'll have to make do with this until it's released it a format I can actually use :p 

    I'd also be interested in FLACs...

    So I am looking at this guy: https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Techni..._rd_wg=cSe35&refRID=JBJ1NVAP6PZWBGV4GTQD&th=1

    However, I obviously am going to need speakers. What should I get for this unit? Any thoughts?

    Ahhh, the old couriers' top-up fees on top of the standard import duties (for items valued above $20 USD). That extra surcharge is a killer.

    Enjoy the Ride shipped via USPS, so hopefully it's just the standard duties + reasonable Canada Post handling charge.

    Ebay:
    Sound like the UK, you order something that's $20 with $20 shipping, you pay £29.63
    If the item is $22 with $20 shipping you pay £31.12, plus £13.50 parcelforce fee plus £6.23 VAT. So £50.85 ($68.65) total.
    And Americans wonder why we ask for things to be marked down.

    Very glad I wasn't tempted to get this now.

    I'm probably in the minority, but I'm actually not surprised that the GI Joe (Pyramid of Darkness and beyond) / Transformer (Season 2) shared tracks aren't on this collection. If future releases are forthcoming, I can see all of those being on a medium that would market both parties. The only time I remember any exclusive tracks crossing borders was during GI Joe the Movie (Season 3 TF stuff) and the Transformers bumper music that was mistakenly replaced by GI Joe's during the Autobot Run. You can kinda tell each cartoon's "style" after so many years.

    Also Tirade: Don't they sell something similar to that player at Best Buy? I might pick one up this weekend. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I have more records to buy :/

    The key for Canadians to not get dinged at the border is to ensure USPS shipping. I havent paid a brokerage fee ever with usps. Stay aeay from UPS, FedEX is hit and miss.

    That was interesting!! Thanks!

    This seems to be the source of Soundwave's new arm (but not sure exactly what that is from)...

    I really wish they gave us a CD! Very cool that it happened at all, though.

    Is it just me or the artwork on the front of the packaging is the ugliest I ever seen. The lack of details is unbelievable.. Looks like someone used too much of a Photoshop effect to remove any details.. and some other parts are fully detailed. Anyway.. Thats just ugly..
