RIYL: Go Bots, Capitalism Run Amok, The Toys That Made Us,

Label: Enjoy the Toons

For readers of a certain age all of the cartoons we grew up watching were designed by toy companies as 30 minute long commercials that they could intersperse with other commercials.

Probably the best of those commercials was Transformers. As an aside, Transformers was such a runaway capitalist game that they made a movie AND KILLED OFF ALL MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS IN LIKE THE FIRST 15 MINUTES just to convince us all to buy more toys. I’m not even joking this is what really happened. That movie seriously messed me up.

Anyway, available for the first time, this is music from the original television show.

This is a second pressing, and run don’t walk because these are going fast. Personally, I’m a big fan of the Starscream split.
