It’s long been a holy grail for fans of Transformers Generation 1. To be able to have the original soundtrack of our childhood favorite show to listen to, enjoy, and reminisce to all those classic moments to.
We’ve been waiting for a long time for an official soundtrack release – one that is promised to be coming, someday, soon, allegedly – but in the meantime, a dedicated group of fans have taken it on themselves to painstakingly restore every single piece of Generation 1’s background music. Three seasons, 98 episodes, hundreds of tracks.
Today, that project has reached its completion. The fan restoration of Transformers Generation 1’s soundtrack has produced a copy of the music for Generation 1 season 3. The season brought us huge amounts of music inspired by Vince DiCola’s work on the 1986 animated movie, together with some truly excellent battle themes that reflected the futuristic tone the show took in its third season.
You can check it out on the project’s kickstarter update page.
As a bonus, you can also check out an exhaustive list of where every piece of music plays in every episode. Every piece of music. All 98 episodes. That’s dedication to the fandom and the community. Check it out on the season 3 postscript update. Now you too can resurrect Optimus Prime to the original music that accompanied his first – okay, technically it was about his third – return from the toybox in the sky.
To Jimbo, the rest of the team, and to all the backers who made this possible – bravo, gentlemen. There are many happy fans of the original cartoon living out some happy memories listening to this soundtrack this day.
