Exclusive – Stan Bush talks about Michael Bay not using “The Touch” in his Transformers movies

8 August 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To mark the film’s 30th anniversary, we got in touch with rock singer Stan Bush to talk about The Transformers: The Movie‘s iconic theme song “The Touch”, and why it wasn’t used in the Michael Bay live-action movies.

Bush had re-recorded “The Touch”, and it looks like it very nearly made it into the final movie.

“I never found out what happened,” he told us. “It was pulled at the last minute. Like, a couple of weeks before the movie came out. There was going to be a little clip of it played by Bumblebee. It would have been a cool thing for the fans, but I don’t know. I got conflicting stories that Michael Bay was trying to distance himself from the original film. It was all speculation, but I never found out what happened.”

For Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Bush re-recorded “The Touch »

On the movie’s 30th anniversary, we got in touch with The Transformers: The Movie director Nelson Shin to talk about one of the more iconic moments of the franchise: the death of Optimus Prime.

As revealed by the writers of the movie in other interviews, the decision to kill of the Autobot leader was made by Hasbro to discontinue his toy and launch a new one, but Korean-born Shin argues that a lot more discussions took place around it.

“We had a serious issue of whether to kill Optimus Prime and the Matrix transitioning onto Ironhide, which we could not decide for several weeks,” he told us. “Optimus Prime was the leader of good guys. In the story board of mine, he should be killed, but when I asked if there would not be Optimus Prime toys any more after he was killed, no one answered it. I put »

Till All Are One: A Production History of The Transformers: The Movie (1986)

7 August 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the 30th anniversary, Luke Owen sits down with The Transformers: The Movie director Nelson Shin, composer Vince Dicola and “The Touch” singer Stan Bush to find out how the movie got made…

In 1980, Takara Toys launched a series of action figures named Daiakuron (Diaclone), transforming vehicles and robots which were piloted by another of their toylines Mikuroman (Microman). The Microman series was ported over to the United States by toy manufacturer Hasbro, who were looking to reactive their G.I. Joe trademark and wanted to repurpose the Japanese toy for American children. Following the success of Kenner’s Star Wars action figures and Mego’s Micronaughts, Hasbro wanted to ditch the 1970s 12-inch dolls and replace them with 3 ¾ inch figures, retitled G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. Following a successful re-launch, Hasbro imported Diaclone and rebranded them The Transformers along with the help of Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Jim Shooter, »
