This theatrical movie based on the television series (which was also based on a popular multiform robot toyline) did not go over very well at the box office. The movie takes place in 2005, twenty years after the television series, and chronicles the efforts of the heroic Autobots to defend their homeworld Cybertron from the evil Decepticons. Both factions are seething with anger, and that hatred has blinded them to a hideous menace headed their way. That hideous menace is the colossal planet known as Unicron, who has been ready to consume anything that stands in its way. The only thing that can stop Unicron is the Autobot Matrix of Leadership, which is possessed by the Autobots and which the Decepticons, through Unicron's orders, plan to take away from them.Written by

The Matrix of Leadership never came up in the earlier drafts of the script, yet it is the main driving force behind the finished movie's plot. See more »
(at around 6 mins) On Laserbeak's playback of the conversation between Prime and Ironhide, Prime is waving his arms about. He was not doing this when he was actually speaking with Ironhide, though. See more »
I saw this in the theaters in '86 at the wondrous age of 9. I can't even convey the experience to you, so I won't bother. It's been a long time coming for a DVD version, and now that I have it (ALL swearing intact, at long last!), I can deposit my faded, scratchy-sounding VHS copy on the shelf to rest in peace. Watching anything 92+ times will do that (next to wither is my copy of 'Aliens: Special Edition'). VHS just doesn't hold up the way DVD does (sans scratches). This is a great movie for all, though mostly Gen X-ers (born 1965-1980) will like this more than the older or younger crowds. My new joy beyond simply watching it is tormenting my girlfriend by speaking every line of the movie aloud as it is spoken on-screen. Get a big-screen, Dolby 5.1, a tub o' the buttery stuff, and prepare for both a nostagic episode and some of the finest Japanese animation to NOT be dubbed (it's all originally in English!). "Until that day, till all are one..."
