    I was 11 in 1986. Was disappointed OP died but didn't cry. Was more in shock that so many Ark survivors died right away and seemingly quite painfully too (Prowl’s torso shot by one of the Constructicons, face burning from the inside out and then blown torso once he falls) did more of a number on me than Meg’s fight with OP.

    Let me guess, it was when the narrator says "Does Prime die?" in the trailer?

    Saw it waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay later so no. But I have to admit, that although I knew Starscream was going to die, I got a bit sad by seeing it. Still best death eva!

    Yep, absolutely. Oddly enough, when I showed my wife the movie for the first time back in 2006-2007ish, SHE cried. She also hit me because I didn't warn her. I also forgot to mention the spoiler from Wrath of Khan. She was fairly pissed about that, enough that she made me get dressed and go to Family Video to get the next couple movies in the series.

    No. But the music before he dies was pretty sad despite the Autobots being victorious in driving away the Decepticons.

    No, because I wasn't even born at the time, when the 1986 Movie first released, Dinobot's death in Beast Wars in the other hand is a comply story.

    I'll cop to crying. Wept like a faucet when I first saw it. Still get choked up seeing it sometimes. It's one of the most strongly emotional moments in Transformers, even 30 years later.

    I didn't cry, but truthfully I was never that attached to Optimus. I had actually seen Five Faces of Darkness before my parents got around to renting the movie. So I knew about Rodimus and the new Transformers. I actually remember being surprised that the old Transformers were in the movie at all. I thought the movie just jumped ahead into the future long after the original autobots were gone (like Star Trek: TNG). I didn't know the movie addressed what happened to them. And even then I was much more shocked by the shuttle scene. I think I was probably still in shock over that when the Optimus stuff went down.
