So… Hasbro Studio Shorts (a new official youtube channel Hasbro is using to release clips and short animations from their various properties, most notably the actually really well done MLP Rainbow Rocks cartoons) recently uploaded what they entitle “Transformers ULTIMATE Puns Mashup”

I don’t think most of these are puns, but they put Beast Wars up in this, so I am satisfied

You have to understand, “Make Tracks” is my favorite episode of G1.

Even with all the goofy 80’s kitsch, it’s still a really solid story about a boy who overcomes some pretty extreme circumstances to become a hero and truly learn the values of friendship via seemingly vain Autobot who turns out to have a lot more heart than he lets on.

Raoul is best G1 human.

What most people don’t understand about “Make Tracks” is that it’s so much more complex and mature than other G1 episodes.  It has a solid story, clever writing, wonderful character interactions, actual danger that the viewer feels invested in, and good voice acting.  Unlike most G1 episodes taking place at desert robot stations, science labs, and other planets, “Make Tracks” took place in the big city, and centred around the life of a latino street kid trying to keep himself alive.  Raoul’s development from a carjacker concerned with his own survival into a true friend who is willing to sacrifice himself for Tracks is above and beyond character development in G1, on the level of or perhaps surpassing surprise seeker depth in “Fire in the Sky.”  Tracks actually got an episode to himself and broke the audience’s assumptions about his own character, making him more layered than most other bots.  “Make Tracks” exemplifies the TF tagline of “More than Meets the Eye.”

And Tracks and Raoul even got a followup episode!  Which was very very G1 silly, like to an extreme of 80’s cheese geewunniness, and Raoul was suddenly white, but we got to see the two of them interacting again, and it was good.

But seriously, the interaction of hoity toity Tracks and streetwise Raoul is… beautiful!  And to think I’m talking about a show where a car just gets up and flies.

Word.

Even the fanboys agree this episode is a beautiful love story.

It’s time once again for another AMV spotlight recommendation!

Title: Revenge of Mr. Transformer (2009)
Creator: thundercatlord
Audio: Styx’s Mr. Roboto
Source Footage: Transformers G1 film (1986)

Don’t think the sheer “ha dee har har, it’s Mr. Roboto and Transformers” is what gives the project juice. Rather, this video is a masterpiece of lip syncing, masking, and spot on timing with tons of transformers in-jokes for fans.

If you’re a fan of classic TF, or just want to see what a lot of time and patience can bring you through video editing, I highly recommend giving this a watch.
