    I can buy it at retail. I don't see anything too different in the offering.

    Nope. Very frustrating to me. Why bother releasing it if it’s not also available in a format the vast majority of people use? I’d gladly give them my money for a CD or digital release, but I have zero interest in, or use for, a niche medium like vinyl.

    IIRC, Hasbro previously announced that there will be a digital release at some point during the 40th anniversary year.

    Do we know which tracks those are? Or what BGM was missing from the previous releases?

    Since Zobovor's music restoration project has almost 4 hours of music, this is obviously still going to be missing a good bit of BGM from the show (including my favorite, the instrumental version of Cold Slither, unless it's under another name...).

    Just another cash-grab taking advantage of G1 and vinyl collectors.

    I  see a regular release and an Amazon exclusive version.  Does anyone know the difference?  I have two copies of the original release as well.  Did they fix the songs?  Some of the original tracks were pre-cursers to what was used on the cartoons so they were a bit off.

    Vinyl records outsell CDs for the second year running

    Niche? Vinyl has outsold CD’s for the past 2 years.

    I agree. It's so frustrating, as we know there is way more music out there (pretty much all music from season 2 is missing here, for instance!), and we also know that Rob Walsh remastered *everything* before he passed away.

    So Hasbro has the entire soundtrack, but they're just sitting on it and are not even releasing it digitally. Getting a good quality version of the entire soundtrack is incredibly important to some people you know.... Including myself. I really wish they would just release the whole thing already. And digitally. Wouldn't mind paying big bucks for it either, it's worth it to me.

    Also, the credits on the original record are all wrong. There's no way Johnny Douglas composed the season 3 synth-rock tracks. The credits should roughly be: Johnny Douglas season 1, Rob Walsh seasons 2 and 3. The record made it seem as if they both worked on all 3 seasons...

    We finally got a clarification via the project manager of this release on Reddit. and here's a link to the Amazon exclusive release:

    Amazon.com

    Here you are the details:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/transforme...oure_preordering_the_transformers_40th_vinyl/

    Hi all,

    I'm David, the project manager for the upcoming vinyl release for the Music from the Original Animated Series. And I just wanted to inform everyone of the TWO listings on Amazon.

    It seems the majority of pre-orders have gone towards the standard edition. Now, with this release we worked hard to ensure the 'standard' was far from what that word means. But, Amazon have an exclusive edition featuring a 12x12 card print with an exclusive variant of Matt Ferguson's incredible artwork!

    This edition is limited to only 2,000 copies, and I don't want fans confused as to which version they've pre-ordered. Check the edition in your pre-order, and if it doesn't have the product code B0CZF1CMYW, then you've pre-ordered the standard edition which doesn't include the print.

    Here's an image of the Amazon exclusive. Everything is the same as the standard (obi-strip, the metallic Autobots and Decepticons colour finish etc), but with the 12x12 print.

    Just wanted to clear that up, as I think Amazon are prioritising the standard in the listings by mistake.

    There's more to come with this release, so keep your eyes and ears peeled.

    David.
