Thanks to contributor Ransack The Elder, the archive now hosts on-set photos and storyboards for Griffin-Bacal's production of the 1992 GI Joe toy commercials.
After 1990, the agency dropped animated short-length advertising (at the same time as returning to full-length animation with Bucky O'Hare) in favour of serialized, live-action storytelling. For 1992, the plot centered around a scheme by Destro (voiced by Arthur Burghardt for the final time) to kidnap and brainwash Duke into serving Cobra.
Added model sheets covering Expressions, Attitudes and Mouth Guides for the main cast members, Dungeon Master, Venger and Tiamat's Heads
Also, added model sheets for episode no.2 Eye Of The Beholder (Sir John, Sir John's Son, Blue Dragon, Escargyte and the Hyena-Like Creatures).
Added the Construction Model sheets for all main cast members, as revised at the start of season 2. Consisting of five or six sheets per character: Front (some with A and B views), Front 3/4 view, Side, Rear, Rear 3/4 view.
Also replaced the existing sheets for Mouth Guides, Expressions, Attitudes, Turnarounds and Construction with better quality copies
There is a new page at the archive for contemporary shows produced by other companies, not affliated with Sunbow or Marvel Productions. Containing miscellaneous items, as well as production timelines I have put together as something of a hobby. The page will also be a place for websites specializing in other franchises and companies to be linked. If anyone knows of a website based around archiving animation production material that they feel should be linked, drop me a line on the Blogger contact form.
Shows/companies currently covered by the page are:
- Filmation 1982-1987 (He-Man, She-Ra and Bravestarr)
- Mister T 1983-1985 (including partial storyboard by Don Manuel)
- Challenge Of The Go-Bots 1984-1986. Including (with thanks to Jim Sorenson), an early treatment for the movie, vastly different from Battle Of The Rock Lords
- The Real Ghostbusters 1986-1991
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1987-1996
- Marvel Comics' Properties 1992-1997
- Transformers (as an overall franchise)
