    You know, I just watched the movie for the first time in a long time and I noticed that they used the same Transformers in many different shots throught the movie. Does anyone know why that was? In one shot they show Hound and Sunstreaker on earth. Later they show the same two with Optimus when he arrives on earth.

    Also, only 4 Dinobots?

    Haha you ever notice that the entire G1 series has many, many, many animation errors? That's the answer I'd go with.

    Count how many times Shrapnel comes up, even after he apparently dies.

    Well I'm going to assume that it was a cost issue, as they didn't use all the G1 roster like they should have.

    G1 was full of fails like that, but since it's G1 it's awesome.

    You just saw it??????? where have you been for the last 23 years?

    That's cuz those are all his clones.

    Duh =P

    I love the '86 movie to death though.... probably my favorite thing to come out of G1 (and it's one of my favorite animated movies, Disney or otherwise O_O)

    Oh, ok. Me and my reading skills. They just go down the drain when summer hits.

    When my friend and I saw It we did the same thing (messing around). When Prime died we pretended to cry.

    I still think the '86 movie is the best Transformers movie ever made :)

    The animation for the cartoon was full of errors, because the animators had a tough time keeping up with the production of the toys. Therefore the animation for the cartoon was made in a sloppy way. As for the movie....power of habit? Still beats the 07 live-action by far, though!

    When I see the TF Movie[1985] scene 4 when Optimus Prime paid the ultimate price I cried and the tears were real, even when I hear that music piece I start to cry

    Yep! Kinda like Daryl from the 80's. As in "Hi I'm Shrapnel. This is my brother Shrapnel and this is my other brother Shrapnel."

    Also at Starscreams coronation you can see Thundercracker standing in the crowd. I just noticed that a couple of weeks ago.
