Transformers: The Movie, Original Motion Picture Score

TransformersCoverIn the age of digital downloads and streaming music, who goes to the record stores and buys the physical copy?  Well, if you’re an old-school fanboy like me, this is one CD you should definitely buy, The Transformers:  The Movie Original Motion Picture Score by Vince DiCola.  Let’s not mistake these soundtrack CDs for the Michael Bay live-action crap, this is the 1986 animated Transformers flick.  Yes, you should be aware The Transformers: The Movie CD which came out in 1986, but that CD featured all the pop songs like “The Touch” & “Dare” and only a couple of score tracks.  This release features 25 tracks of music score from the movie.

The Loyal Subjects x Transformers Wave 3

laserbeakI remember buying The Loyal Subjects (TLS) x Transformers Wave 1 blindboxes, because I’m a sucker for anything G1 Transformers related.  The vinyl figures were decent and it looked cute.  Since the 2013 Wave 1 release, TLS have upped the ante with their Wave 2 release with more points of articulation, accessories, sounds and lights.  Now with this Transformers Wave 3 released the vinyl figures move a little like action figures and have cooler signature weapons related to the character.  Some figures have light up LEDs or sound effects.
