Retro Records: Transformers the Movie (1986)

Welcome back, friends. For this Retro Records offering we are hedging our bets just a little because this is in fact the audiobook for 1986’s Transformers: The Movie. Adapted from the film screenplay by John Grant for the UK published Ladybird Books, it of course tells the overall story for the animated feature. While not using actual dialogue from the movie, most of the spoken lines are direct quotes from the movie.

John Grant was no stranger to writing for the Transformers, including this adaptation he wrote ten other books for Ladybird Books featuring our favorite Robots in Disguise, as well as properties like Masters of the Universe and the Flintstones.
