Haha - can't help myself, I love talking about the cartoon! Speaking of animation studios and The Movie (which I had a blast at last night), I've always suspected that either Sunbow brought in another studio or two to help meet The Movie's deadlines or Toei subcontracted a few scenes out. I'm particularly thinking of a bit in the beginning, the shot of the one bot right before the line "Arblus, look - it's Unicron!" and the shots of Starscream, Ramjet, and Astrotrain during his coronation. They're a little more typically anime in their proportions and much more detailed than most other shots. Starscream even has lips!
