Random TF Tidbits
This is just a small collection of other TF info that isn't anyplace
else on the web, or at least isn't everyplace else.

Stuff not by me:
- Usenet Control Messages
These special Usenet posts created the
six existing TF newgroups. Each states the purpose of the group
and includes a "charter" with basic rules and bylaws. The exception
is ATT, the oldest (and largest) of the groups. When it was
newgrouped in 1993, no charter was included, making the
statement of purpose in the control message itself the de facto
Beast Wars PC Game Demo - This is a free demo of the old
PC/PlayStation Beast Wars game. It's sort of hard to find the demo
these days without signing up for an account on some random gaming
site, so I figured I'd keep a copy here.
Transformers Battlecards - A TF-themed collectible trading card
game (CCG) developed by Richard Garner and JuQuan Williams. This ZIP
file contains an old set of the cards and rules so you can
print out a deck and play with your friends. While the
"Beast Wars Mutating Card Game" and the "Armada" board/card game
that were released by Hasbro were based on some of the ideas in
Battlecards, the original Battlecards game was sadly never officially
Obituary for Skyflight - Transformer fan and my friend Burt Ward,
known online as Skyflight, died in August 2003 of colon cancer.
Dark Nova picture - Dark Nova is the main villain from the
Japanese TF series "BattleStars: The Return of Convoy".
BattleStars was not a cartoon, but a series of comic-like spreads
in TV Magazine. Note how much DN does
not look like Unicron. Don't let anybody tell you
they're the same entity. Cool-guy Doug Dlin
scanned this picture at my request, so if you use it on your site,
please give him credit for the scan.
TF Movie Script - Written by Ron Friedman, this is the original
script for the Transformers movie. CJ Stankiewicz typed this in from
an "official" bound copy of the script, ordered from a script store.
There are things in the script that did not appear in the actual
movie, which makes it pretty interesting to read.
TF Movie Transcript - Prepared by Phil Thorne, this is a simple
transcript of what happens in the final movie. Obviously, then,
it matches the released film rather than the script above.
G1 Cartoon Appearances List, by Sarai Feria - This lists all
the characters from the G1 toon, and tells you what episodes they
appeared in. Although this list has some errors in it, it's
presented in a format that is very quick to search through. If
you want a more thorough (and very carefully maintained) guide
to character appearances, visit Rik Bakke's
TF Book of the Dead, by Liane Elliot - A list of Transformers
who died in various continuities (mostly G1 stuff).
Excerpts from a biography of Scatman Cruthers, the voice of
Jazz in the G1 cartoon, compiled by vanished fan BillNes@AOL.
Tech Specs for Bruticus and Abominus - These characters never
had tech specs released in the US, but here is a translation of
their Japanese specs.
Beast Wars Universe info about the Vok - This is
a translated excerpt from a Japanese guidebook about Beast
Wars where Larry DiTillio explains some of his personal ideas
about the Vok. Note that these ideas never made it into the story
itself, and that Bob Forward -- Larry's co-editor on the series --
had his own different ideas about it, so this info is cool background
stuff but should not be considered "canon".
