Jim Sorenson has updated his blog with an entry entitled The Ark Addendum - A Prime Problem and Ron Friedman scripts which focuses on the Generation One episode A Prime Problem, where the Decepticons clone Optimus Prime and attempt to lead the Autobots into a deadly ambush.
Jim also includes a link to the original Ron Friedman script which includes some additional scenes. You can download the script from MegaUpload.
Jim Sorenson has posted some of the Transformers cartoon episode sctips on his blog 'The Disciples of Boltax' blog
The scripts are Dinobot Island Part 1 and 2
As part of his updates to the Disciples of Boltax, Jim Sorenson has added a new entry for The Ark Addendum, Carly and Chip. Though previously included in The Ark books Jim, via Kjeevahh on behalf of Lexmc, has now been given a new, more complete character sheet of both these characters.
previously included models for Chip, though the models that I won as a
part of the Frieman material were different and, I believe, more
finalized than what was published in The Ark. This is one of those
pages that I deeply wish I could go back and insert into The Ark, but
alas I suspect that that train has sailed" Jim himself blogs in reference to the new material which you can find here.
There are two new Robn Freeman auction galleries / uploads for you today, if you are following them.
First up is G1son's images of the colour character designs of the Transformers characters.
Second is a download made available by Jim Sorenson
And now, the third part of the spoils of our little charitable
collective endeavor. I'm continuing to upload scans from the Hasbro
Briefing Binder. This is the second tab, marked Decepticons. There are
definitely some items of interest, like a corrected design for Rumble's
gun, or the note that Megatron's head should be 20% bigger.
Jim Sorenson has posted an update on his blog regarding the Ron Friedman auction that he won that contained the preliminary script for Transformers: The Movie (that's the 1986 film).
"Last month, a group of dedicated fans pooled their resources to attempt to purchase a piece of Transformers history; scripts and other documents from Transformers movie writer Ron Friedman. Many scripts were won by our coalition, but perhaps the most anticipated among the many documents we purchased was an early draft of The Transformers: The Movie, dated 4/27/1985. I've scanned it in and done a preliminary OCR pass, so without further ado, here it is for download!"
The script contains the dialogue for many scenes that did not make the final draft including Megatron's reference to his "Spark", action for Sunstreaker and Wheeljack and the how the fate of Earth was also going to hang in the balance. Some of the information was already known about, like the Predacons originally being Autobots called Anibots, but what is new (at least to us) is that their names were finalised as Simba (Razorclaw), Pardo (Rampage), Shriek (Divebomb), Thump (Headstrong) and Clump (Tantrum). Other new characters are Stripes and Stinger two other cassettes for Blaster. Form the script its obvious that Streeljaw was to be called Cubbie, a Tiger was going to be called Stripes, a scorpion was going to be called Stinger and there was only going to be one robot, Bolts. We had heard rumours of a scorpion cassette many years ago, but always put it down to the watch scorpion confusing people as we could find no further evidence.
