Blog #1452: Artifact of the Week: Transformers: Generation One Audiobook The Battle for Planet Earth

Transformers: Generation One Audiobook The Battle for Planet Earth

I picked this audiobook up a long time ago, but just recently I found a set that included the cardboard box they came in. I believe it was available in the UK and it’s dated 1985. It was manufactured by Pickwick International.

It’s a two cassette set. The individual boxes are identical on the outside, but the j-card (for anyone not old enough to remember audio cassettes, that’s what they call the cardboard insert inside an audio cassette box) shows the names of the individual stories. Volume 1 includes “Terror on Mount Sheelah” and “Bumblebee to the Rescue”. Volume 2 includes “Menace at the Dam” and “Espionage!!!!”.

I haven’t listened to them myself, but according to they have a single narrator rather than a full cast of voice actors like the audio versions of the Ladybird Books Transformers stories. Pickwick International collaborated with Ladybird Books on those. (I will have to do a blog on the Ladybird Transformers books sometime.) The four stories are available on YouTube if you want to listen to them.

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
