    I urge you to do so. :) The quicker it sells out at La La Land Records the better. I am pushing this both here and on FSM.

    I would also like to get the soundtrack to the live action Masters of the Universe movie.

    That's actually been out twice. Once from La La Land Records in a 2-CD set in 2008 (complete score+ original album program), but it's long since sold out - and once from Intrada in 2012 on a single CD (complete score only, no album program) - also sold out. You've missed the boat on that one! I'm just having a look to see if it's available from other stockists...

    It's a bit too expensive at the moment on Amazon. Might have a look on eBay later.

    Indeed. Here are some other options. Still not cheap!

    Unsealed but new. Shipping to UK is 3.50 euros

    This one's in the UK but isn't new
    https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/3519287?ev=rb

    Both the above are the LLL release. This one below is Intrada
    https://www.discogs.com/Bill-Conti-...MGM-Motion-Picture-Soundtrack/release/3800728

    Third option: the original 80s album on CD from Varese. £16+£2 postage. If you're OK with just the album and not the complete score, this is the way to go

    Yes, you said before - sorry, I get carried away with my enthusiasm for film soundtracks! :)

    No problem. It's great I have some links for when I want to get it.
    There is quite a few film soundtracks I would love to get like Return of the Jedi.

    I have just bought these two releases. Sound quality on both is excellent. Transformers shades it for me, as the absence of the Ducktales theme from the end credits is still annoying. It's worth your while if you are a Ducktales fan and know the movie like the back of your hand, though!

    The liner notes for both releases are very in-depth.

    French cartoon soundtrack company Tele 80 are releasing Shuki Levy's music to Jayce And The Wheeled Warriors. It's being done as a crowdfunding campaign, with release planned for September, if you back it. Needless to say, I have done so!

    They offer four packages:
    CD
    Vinyl
    CD and vinyl
    CD, vinyl, poster in a boxset

    More details here

    Nothing beats the soundtrack to Transformers the movie. Its so 80s it brings me joy every time I listen to it.

    They've reached 365% in funding which is crazy. Nothing's going to stop this project now :)

    Still wish Thundercats would get a soundtrack release but at least it's on YouTube.

    The leaked stuff is good, but a full set of cues with all the variations properly remastered would be amazing.

    Archive.org has a lot of 80's and 90's cartoon themes in its database. The downloads are free unless otherwise dictated, and they even have the extended version of the theme from M.A.S.K in there.
    https://archive.org/index.php

    I would run a security check before downloading files, though. Some people who have taken magazines from the "Men's Interest" section of the website have been treated to viruses.

    This website http://www.televisiontunes.com/ also has cartoon themes like you wouldn't believe! I mean you can get lost in here for hours listening to everything in there. They have some of the most obscure, "I can't believe they have this here" Television themes. For instance, they have the theme to Charlie's Angels pilot in there! (which is different than the other season by season themes)

    This website has anime themes (And I mean every Sailor Moon show, movie you can think of) Power Rangers (including the original Japanese Sentai themes like Battle Fever J, Goggle V, Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger just a drop in the bucket Kamen Rider too)

    They've got music from Jem and the Holograms mastered from the cassettes that came with the dolls, G-1 Transformers themes and information files that aired at the end of the episodes, G.I. Joe ARAH music. There's also the ThunderCats themes, incidental music from the show, and even commercials. They're all audio files, and some of them aren't that great, some of them have even been recorded off TV, like with a microphone, and uploaded- but when you're in a desert, you'll drink whatever water you can find.
