The Ones I know for sure who died was brawn,prowl,ratchet,ironhide,wheeljack,windcharger,and optimus prime. In season 3 episode 73 you see huffers crypt so he died. In the script trail breaker and red alert died. i looked on wikipedia it said mirage might have been shot by megatron while battling an insecticon or something. And oyu can argue to gears was the 1 autobot who was dropped in to the acid pit before daniel knoked it down when they were inside unicron. I know for a fact jazz,bumblebee,cliffjumper,sunstreakermhound in in the 1st headmasters episode side swipe was in it so he survived but headmasters was a japan show and they made it before they got the movie so side swipe might of died i don't know. I know the series 2 autobots who survived were dinobots,omegasupreme,blaster,perceptor,the minicons powerglide,warpath,beachcomber,seaspray,and cosmos were in it. As for the decepticons i nkow skywarp,and thunder cracker and shock wave were permanteley killed off. Star scream died but showed up in 2 episodes of season 3. Megatron was rebuilt as galvatron and those 3 insecticons died but there were shown in season 3. I just like to think those were clones cause i thought in 1 episode in season 2 they made alot of insecticon clones. Dirge,ramjet,and thrust was shown eaten by unicron but were shown ins eason 3 so i suppose it was an animated error in the movie. I also thought i heard that the 3 decepticons that made up reflector died too i'm not quite sure. So do any of you guys know anything else that i don't about who died in the 1986 animated movie that i did not list. The whole autobot crypt looked too big to hold those autobots who were shown in episode 73 drak awakening i thought there might be more autobots who would be abord that crypt. I thought it might be the rest of the season 2 autobots who did not survive that i didn't mentio like smokescreeen and hoist but i dont nkow please give me an answer of what happen to the other auto bots who did not survive into season 3.
