    PRE-MOVIE MUSING:


    So first up, a heartfelt universal greeting and thanks for tuning in! Just a short foreword real quick (except for YOU, fidgeting in your seat waiting for the film to start, only to realise you're already low on popcorn and need the Gents again after that last swig of Dr. Pepper. Quick! It's just a dull-ass O2/Redbull ad. You can make it ... )

    Having checked first with the mods, it’s important for the sake of board rules I consign a big part of the backstory for this project to the link in my signature below (in blue.) If you’d like to know part of the reason why I’m doing it and what it means to me here & now in the latter half of 2020 then by all means be so kind as to have a read.

    EDIT: 29/3/21: GoFundMe link connected this project now closed.


    The plan, if things go well, is to add a new installment (of 6) every fortnight in the run up to Xmas, by which point all shall indeed be one (albeit, in a topsy-turvy retelling of a story you may THINK you know.)

    That said and out of the way, what's here is here first & foremost because I love doing it and adore my memories of Transformers this year more than ever - not least, on account of that lady gone from my life at the dawning of the pandemic who made it all possible: who first bought me Jazz & Thundercracker one glorious Xmas in '84, thinking it was a passing craze, and didn't know I'd never look back.


    Did I nag her 'til her ears bled to take me to see the animated movie in '86? Yes. Yes, I did. And as for this take, well, it was written very much with TFW2005 in mind so it's my hope that other like-minded '86-ers enjoy it. If you can’t share this kind of nerdist content with a specific nerdist fanbase, well, then frankly what’s the point? :rolleyes: :D 


    Rejoice '86 movie nerds! There will be General Hermann Shockwave signing eleventh hour surrender terms; there will be a Reflector cameo on the infamous doomed shuttle, tragic Starscream backstory in the run up to his abortive leadership gambit (well, I say "tragic"... o_O ) and rampant scraplet infestations in no way reminiscent of the times in which we live.


    So without further delay/ado … I give you ... er ... GONG MAN!


    [​IMG]


    Alright, I give you ... a slight delay.

    PART#1 COMING TOMORROW!

    -PART ONE-
    "BY ZEUS' BEARD!"



    FADE IN

    EXT. THE COLD ABANDONMENT OF SPACE

    A monster planet of infinite size, mass and pincer-potential moves silently through deep space. Passing up the stone plate planet of LITHOGRAPH, it hones in on its sister planet, LITHONE: a far tastier hors d’oeuvre.

    ZOOM IN

    EXT. CENTRAL MALL, THE PLANET LITHONE - DAY

    Bearded infants frollick safely near an unattended escalator as their hirsute mothers stand idly by discussing the fine weather in chic garb of magenta and magenta-brown: the only pastel shades available at Lithonian fashion retailers.

    DISSOLVE TO

    INT. LABORATORY

    A pair of bearded scientists belonging to what is now becoming abundantly clear are a predominantly BEARDED race proceed with an experiment - expert beaker analysts testing two brightly coloured fluids: PINK for accelerated beard growth; PURPLE to harness the power of the Lithonian beard to produce immortality.

    Just then, a deafening woosh and rumble sends them crashing to the floor. There goes that scientific breakthrough.


    GANGLUS
    Professori, look!
    It’s VACUUMICRON!

    GANGLUS & PROFESSOR COSINE squint through the lab window at the vast left pincer of VACUUMICRON anchoring to their planet, beginning suction on a multi-storey hover park due for demolition anyway, so let’s face it, he did them all a favour there.

    PROFESSOR COSINE
    Get to the ships!
    And bring the formula with you!

    CUT TO

    EXT. LAUNCH BAY

    TRACK the pair along the walkway as it crumbles and they narrowly make it to their ships. GANGLUS hands PROFESSOR COSINE the rolled up scrolls to the formula. They split.

    CUT TO


    INT. GANGLUS’ SHIP “MACH 3”

    ANGLE ON GANGLUS’ terror-stricken eyes widening behind the control terminal as he taxies the undigested half of the runway for takeoff. Mirror/signal/manoeuvring, he can only look on in horror as a mother, three infants and a shopping mall escalator blow across his path.

    SUCTION FODDER
    Heeelp ussss!!!

    High above them -an infinite white light its centrepoint- the insatiable maw of VACUUMICRON processes the entrails of their planet through his great dust bag and HEPA filters: their friends, their pets, their loved ones.. breakthroughs in beard technology more advanced than Gillette will ever know.

    BACK TO

    INT. MACH 3

    GANGLUS
    Litho sanctotum! I made it!
    Hah! In your FACE, Vacuumicron!

    Hot on his heels about to also clear the soul-sucking traction, PROFESSOR COSINE follows suit, albeit making the unforced error of a tangental approach rather than his signature move equal to the ratio of the side adjacent to an acute angle to the hypotenuse. He is toast.


    PROFESSOR COSINE
    GANGLUSSS! YEEEAAAARRRRRRGH!!!

    All hope and the formula lost, COSINE’s craft is immediately ingested, but a single speck of garlic to the feast. Despairing, his lab assistant can only blink to miss the instantaneous horror in the rearview, his mentor sucked into the void at approximately the speed of light in a vacuum - or for any astrophysicists out there: 299792458 m/s.


    GANGLUS
    (to self)
    Sharp beard, sharp mind,

    Sharp beard, sharp mind..

    GANGLUS strokes his forked goatee to steel his nerves; a hand of freakish Fu Manchu fingernails to match his facial hair pauses over the transmitter.


    GANGLUS
    (dialling)
    Hello operator? Universal
    Patent office, please.
    Without delay.

    Reaching behind a sprung valve in his chest, he twists open a camshaft to procure a glowing purple vial he stows beneath the dash.


    And out there - sated for now but not for long - VACUUMICRON’s planetary ring attachment illuminates, cruising ever on into an unsuspecting galaxy.

    FADE UP MUSIC:

    “Don’t Fear The Reaper” by Blue Oyster Cult.


    DISSOLVE TO

    A twirling spirograph of cosmic mindf*ckery.

    V.O. NOT VINCENT PRICE

    THERE'S AN EVIL NEW SOUL-SUCKER IN THE GALAXY:
    THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE TREMBLING TO THE DIETARY

    V.O. NOT VINCENT PRICE

    MEANWHILE, IN THE YEAR 2005, THE TREACHEROUS
    DECEPTIBOTS HAVE CONQUERED PLANET CYBERTRON.
    BUT FROM SECRET STAGING GROUNDS ON TWO OF
    ITS SITTING DUCKS, I MEAN "MOONS", THE VALIANT
    AUTOCONS PREPARE TO RETAKE THE OCCASIONAL
    WEEKEND PIED-À-TERRE THEY CALL ‘HOME’-


    CROSSFADE TO

    INT. AUTOCON HQ, CYBERTRON - NIGHT

    Texas-tough and snarling at the console, IRONBUTT surveys a monitor swarming with turquoise seekers and camera guys as per tradition for Deceptibot crowd scenes. Before him stands their iconic leader, AUTONOMOUS PRIME: The Duke, The Boss, the kind of steady hands the Mattie Ross's of the universe could rely on, even if he was the kind of all American hero who went all in for McCarthy and the commie blacklist.


    IRONBUTT
    Every time I look in a CRT, Prime,
    my contrast fizzles! When are we
    gonna start bustin' out full HD?!

    PRIME
    Patience, Ironbutt! We don’t have
    enough energon to power a full HD
    refurb! Which is why I want you to
    make a special run to Autocon city
    on earth, pick up a consignment of
    recycled CRT's then smelt them into
    energon. READY THE SHUTTLE FOR LAUNCH!

    IRONBUTT
    Your days are numbered now, CRT!


    IRONBUTT kicks his monitor, transforms, and speeds out to the shuttle, just as (hidden from view) an eavesdropping TASERBEAK flies back to his masters.


    WIPE TO

    INT. DECEPTOBOT HQ – NIGHT

    Purple one-eyed jobsworth, GENERAL HERMANN SHOCKWAVE, coldly surveys TASERBEAK returning in the distance. Extending his falconer’s arm with expert precision, he turns to watch it land instead upon BOOGERTRON’s wrist.

    GENERAL HERMANN SHOCKWAVE
    Taserbeak returns, Boogertron.

    BOOGERTRON
    Welcome, Taserbeak! Unlike
    some of my other warriors,
    *coughShrillshriekcough* YOU
    never f*ck up spectacularly!

    Overhearing half a thinly veiled insult, SHRILLSHRIEK turns from his monitor. Must have been an echo.

    BOOGERTRON
    MEMOREX! Play back
    Taserbeak’s findings!

    MEMOREX
    (transforming)
    As you command, Boogertron.

    V.O. IRONBUTT
    “Every time I look in a CRT
    Prime, my contrast fizzles!
    When are we gonna start bustin’
    out FULL HD?!”


    V.O. PRIME
    “Patience IRONBUTT! We don’t
    have enough energon to power
    a full HD refurb! Which is
    why I want you to make a
    special run to Autocon city
    on earth, pick up a consignment
    of recycled CRT’s then smelt
    them into energon. READY THE
    SHUTTLE FOR LAUNCH!”

    Coldly taking in the scene, GENERAL SHOCKWAVE's unblinking eye surveys the preponderance of red and gold-trim in the Autocon video playback, abhorring the lack of purple in their decor. Disgusting.

    BOOGERTRON
    Muawahaha! You snooze you lose,
    Prime! Which is why I have installed
    Deceptibot HQ with full HD, webcam
    surveillance and unsurpassable mp3
    technology to FILM YOUR DOOM!

    SHRILLSHRIEK
    What about MEMOREX?? Magnetic
    tape went out in the eighties!

    BOOGERTRON
    SILENCE!!!

    V.O. PRIME
    “Now all we need is a little
    energon ... and a LOT of
    reconditioned cathode ray
    tube generators!”

    ANGLE ON BOOGERTRON. He is enjoying this.

    BOOGERTRON
    More than you imagine,
    AUTONOMOUS PRIME!

    <EXCEPTIONALLY SINISTER FADE TO BLACK>


    FADE IN

    INT. AUTOCON SHUTTLE - NIGHT

    Fans Toys HUNK, MP-17 and IRONBUTT sit calmly at a control terminal delegating the throttle to navigate steady cruise control to earth. In a sudden flash of light, a blast blows out the near side of the shuttle. The dust clears and it’s-

    FT HUNK
    Boogertron!

    BOOGERTRON
    DIIIIIIE IN FULL 1080PP, CATHODE
    -RAY TUBE LOVING LUDDITE AUTOCONS!

    FADE UP MUSIC

    “The Ace of Spades”, by Motorhead

    MP-17 takes a direct hit spewing a grim last gasp of flame. RATCHET is put out of commission beyond the help of Droids Sans Frontières. And FT-HUNK fulfils his Ram Man destiny with a last ditch battle charge directly into open canon fire. Muttering something about ebay scalpers, replacement parts and shipping costs, he expires: a ball of purple fusion smoulder to the floor.

    BOOGERTRON
    Nikonocon! I want pictures
    for posterity!


    NIKONOCON
    (as one)
    Yes, almighty Boogertron!
    (Boogertron)) (((Boogertron!)))

    Smirking in tandem, the skeevesome threesome transform to snap HUNK without his shoulder and MP17 without his face.

    BOOGERTRON
    AND HIGH-RES scans, Nikonocon!
    No low-tech 24OPP shit here!


    SHRILLSHRIEK
    This was as much a cakewalk as
    leading androids to a picnic,
    almighty Boogertron!

    BOOGERTRON
    You’re an idiot, SHRILLSHRIEK.
    That annoying teleporting ass-
    wipe who downed our S1 space
    cruiser in the sea is still
    somewhere aboard this shuttle
    completely unaccounted for in
    the remainder of this movie!

    Ears burning, GITANES appears from behind a charred pillar, smoking a Gallois.

    GITANES
    You mean.. THIS annoying
    asswipe, Boogertron?

    BOOGERTRON
    GITANES! We meet again!
    (*leans in to bum a smoke*)
    May I?

    GITANES
    Go ahead-

    MEMOREX
    Boogertron!


    THUNDERCLAPPER
    Don’t smoke it!


    BOOGERTRON
    (sniffing filter)
    Damn it THUNDERCLAPPER, you’re
    right! Cunning plan, Autocon!
    You almost took out the Deceptibot
    leadership with a brazen poison
    lung dart. So near and yet-


    GITANES
    (finishing smoke)
    Low tar.


    BOOGERTRON
    SKYSTRETCHER! Disable his
    teleportation Macguffin with
    your highspeed warp console and
    eject him from this shuttle!


    SKYSTRETCHER
    My.. what?


    BOOGERTRON
    You know! Your.. you two have
    similar circus freak technology,
    you must have SOMETHING!


    SKYSTRETCHER
    You mean.. my time/space
    continuum stretcher?


    BOOGERTRON
    Exxxcellent!

    SMASH CUT TO


    EXT. QUARRY IN GIZA EGYPT, 2549 BC

    GITANES inwardly screams in silent existential agony, awakening as a limestone monolith, his face and distinctive head sculpt carved into the likeness of The Great Sphinx of Giza.

    BACK TO

    INT. AUTOCON SHUTTLE 2005 – NIGHT

    As Deceptibots settle in aboard the hijacked shuttle, MEMOREX tunes in to Heart FM, NIKONOCON looks for a working USB port and THUNDERCLAPPER checks the weather.

    BOOGERTRON
    (ascending flight deck podium)

    The shapeshifter has been
    vanquished! Our safe passage
    is secured! Fellow Deceptibots:
    henceforth in this battle I shall
    be known not by the third grade
    moniker of “Boogertron” where
    'Despotron' & 'Apollyon' were already
    taken by third rate facsimiles of
    greatness. But instead, a name to
    strike fresh fear into our enemies,
    homaging my gladiatorial origins!
    Behold: “KING KAON!” Now Prime
    shall taste his wrath!

    Turning on their still warm swivel chairs to lament the worrying prospect of multiple-personality hard drive degradation in their leader, if not one too many system restores to reboot him for battle, his rallied troops partially raise their fists to cheer.

    DECEPTIBOTS
    Hail King Kaon!
    Hail the greatest browbeater!
    Insulated from the rabble by Ratchet's frankly exquisite Classic FM headphones, MEMOREX takes five from drivetime to share a thought with his leader.

    MEMOREX
    Lord Kaonotron, uh...
    <<erase, rewind>>
    "Lord Kaon"-

    BOOGERTRON
    KING KAON, Memorex. Proceed.

    MEMOREX
    My optical analysis advises urgent
    holographic obfuscation of
    exterior damage to the shuttle
    fuselage to negate Autocon early
    warning systems-

    SKYSTRETCHER
    Just used the last one, bud.
    Sorry. That shit ain't cheap.

    BOOGERTRON
    No matter! King Kaon is king
    of ambush, king of the skies,
    and do you know what else he's
    king of-?

    SKYSTRETCHER shrugs. MEMOREX maintains a dignified silence.


    BOOGERTRON
    Blaggery!
    Stepping down from the podium, smirking to himself, the master of disaster retrieves the dog end GITANES dropped on the holodeck, takes it to his cold metal lips and inhales. SHRILLSHRIEK joins him to vent his intakes.

    BOOGERTRON
    (gazing out into deep space)

    Silence after carnage, Shrillshriek.
    Reminds me of a dream I once had...
    about Primus. Through an ash cloud of
    our enemies and the cold embrace
    of space, he was willing me to live.
    But then it wasn’t Primus I was
    face to face with - only victory.


    Examining choice stills of NIKONOCON’s nefarious handiwork he chuckles to himself as something tugs at his ankle.


    IRONBUTT
    (Still drawing breath)
    NOOOOOOOO!

    BOOGERTRON looks down, sneers, and points his fusion canon directly at IRONBUTT’s head.

    BOOGERTRON
    Behold: the king grants you mercy,
    Autocon, and the only look befitting
    of a loyal G1 carbot-

    IRONBUTT’s head departs his shoulders as BOOGERTRON indulges vintage “muwahahahaha”-ing to deliver the coup de grâce:


    BOOGERTRON
    Toy-accuracy!

    FADE UP MUSIC

    <FADE TO BLACK>

    Someone's got a taste in music.

    But does it have more cowbell?



    I may be a pretty young guy, and considered by my parents to be a tad bit of an old soul. But as that claim seems to shine true after reading this, some of these dated references hit me and hit me good, hahahaha. I love it!

    "MP-17", "FT Hunk", CRTs and trying to go to full HD, you keep hitting and hitting it to a T with these. Fucking lost it at "Memorex", though.

    Though the best part for me has to easily be the final line.

    Bravo, my friend. Bravo. Definitely keeping my eyes on this story here.

    Cheers chchchch, David & TGCB - really appreciate the fact beyond words that those who've read it so far are enjoying the start. :cool: 

    Yeah, seeing as its been my profile pic & user name forever, HAD to have the big headshot moment leading into the break that didn't just lean on the famous one liner we all know. (Though I'm sure others must've made that observation re: the irony of Ironhide's fate stacked up to his headless toy appearance a hundred times before me. Kinda obvious gag!)

    Act 2 is currently shaping up beyond what I'd expected for it, so just enjoying upping the ante (and introducing our proper movie cast, obvs, not just the old guard present here.)
    There is potentially one another Cult track planned for a scene much later on, TGCB, but alas lighter on the cowbell. :D  :music 

    Thanks again.

    Finally had enough time to sit down and give this a good read, I’ve been looking forward to it and wasn’t disappointed!

    Can’t even count the times I LOLed!

    This is some really great stuff and I look forward to reading more!

    Thanks Samue1, always nice to know that people are enjoying reading. Part 2 is quite a tough and complex segment compared to the scene-setter opener (especially the many changes to the original story :p ) but I'm getting there... :cool:

    It's fermenting nicely, dude. :p 

    Wider support is proving hard to find so the words of encouragement mean a lot. :thumbs2: I may take down the link from the Seibertron forums shortly as while the mods there have been equally as helpful as they have on TFW, the verbal/actual response is better here (currently 700+ views but 0 replies there, which is odd. :confused: Across threads generally the reply to viewing ratio seems v.low in their forums compared to here for some reason, and threads with thousands of views still have under ten replies. Perhaps they just have WAY more guests than registered users? :sly2: No idea.)

    Hopefully, things will pick up with Pt.2 and those who view & enjoy will get involved. Reading & word of mouth are the real gold dust tbh, so that those who want to contribute to the GoFundMe without pressure or constant "help me reach my goal!" updates here (unacceptable both to me & probably board policy) are free to do so.

    You only have to divide it by six to see what I'm gunning for to complete each part to the length & quality I’m committing to. Could churn out any old guff ahead of the fortnightly schedule, but frankly it wouldn’t make this a parody to remember. Nor would the humour and characterisation have 'gestated' for long enough in my twisted cranium! :ev: 

    SHN.

    Great work. I wish I had the throughput to create instead of perseverating on how much my job sucks. Thanks for the invite.
