    It was done in Hong Kong. Namely it's the Transformers version of the Dragon Ball Z Big Green dub.

    Next TF panel you go to, ask why Season 1-3 of G1 kept mispronouncing Sparkle's name as Spike. Also, they kept calling Billy Blaster for some reason. Tell them Blaster was his 2nd name.

    Bad delivery, no understanding of the original source material, bad voice acting, hilarious lines or voices, and other stuff.

    The Omni Productions dub is truly a gift to humanity.

    No. He tastes worse and drives up demand for Soundwave Classic.

    You know what would be great for a con?

    We get one of the people who dubbed this in english and we do a Q and A with them on how it feels to be part of the worst dub in anime history.

    Yeah, inviting people to a convention for the sole purpose of berating them about a dub they probably don't even remember because of their extensive history in the business is a fantastic idea.

    There is no way this is the worst dub in anime history. There are some truly godawful dubs, especially from other countries.

    Michael McConnohie (G1 tracks) did some localisation work that was pretty interesting, including samurai pizza cats, he's talked about it at some cons.



    Wrt to the startv dub, the flying Buddha transformation never fails to make me smile.
