    Hi Everyone,

    First, I have to say I am really glad that I have found this site and so many of you who share the same passion and following of the Transformer series.

    Today is my first time here to this board, and if you wouldn't, I would like to gather your feedback and information to a few of my questions. Any assistance is greatly appreciated very much.

    1) I recall through the G1 series, we eventually came to the point that Transformers The Movie was released. At what point in the episode sequence did this movie appear that Optimus prime and others were killed off?

    Episodes 1 through ?? (had Optimus Prime)

    Transformers the Movie (Prime killed, Rodimus assumes leadership)

    Episodes x through 95 (had Rodimus as leader up to the point of Prime's return)


    A few things I remember are:
    A) We come to a point that "contagious' spores are released and Optimus Prime is found somehow and brought back to life. What episode is this?
    B) I remember another episode that Prime is on a spaceship flying into a Quintason (sp) ship where he is getting all badly damaged and shows that he dies. What episode was this one?
    C) After that episode, does Optimus Prime return again? If so, what is the episode?

    Thanks for helping to clarify some of this as my memory is very cloudy about the sequence of how all of this took place.

    Below is a list of episodes for reference:

    1-3 More Than Meets The Eye 4 Transport to Oblivion 5 Roll for it 6 Divide and Conquer 7 Fire In The Sky 8 S.O.S. Dinobots 9 Fire On the Mountain 10 War of the Dinobots 11-13 The Ultimate Doom 14 Countdown to Extinction 15 A Plague of Insecticons 16 Heavy Metal War 17 Autobot Spike 18 Changing Gears 19 City of Steel 20 Attack of the Autobots 21 Traitor 22 The Immobilizer 23 The Autobot Run 24 Atlantis, Arise! ..........33 Auto_Berserk 34 Microbots 35,36 Megatron's Master Plan 37,38 Desertion Of The Dinobots 39 Blaster Blues ....... 43 Make Tracks 44 Child's Play 45 Quest For Surviva 46 The Secret of Omega Supreme 47 The Gambler 48 Kremzeek! 49 Sea Change 50 Triple Takeover 51 Prime Target 52 Auto-Bop 53 The Search For Alpha Trion 54 The Girl Who Loved Powerglide 55 Hoist Goes Hollywood 56,57 The Key to Vector Sigma 58 Aerial Assault 59 War Dawn 60 Trans-Europe Express 61 Cosmic Rust 62 Starscream's Brigade 63 The Revenge of Bruticus 64 Masquerade 65 B.O.T. 66-70 Five Faces of Darkness 71 The Killing Jar 72 Chaos 73 Dark Awakening 74 Forever Is a Long Time Coming 75 Starscream's Ghost 76 Thief In The Night 77 Surprise Party 78 Madman's Paradise 79 Nightmare Planet 80 Ghost In The Machine 81 Web World 82 Carnage In C-Minor 83 The Quintesson Journal 84 The Ultimate Weapon 85 The Big Broadcast of 2006 86 Fight Or Flee 87 The Dweller In the Depths 88 Only Human 89 Money Is Everything 90 Grimlock's New Brain 91 The Call of the Primitives 92 The Face of the Nijika 93 The Burden Hardest to Bear 94,95 The Return of Optimus Prime 96-98 The Rebirth(1,2,3)

    Thanks for all your help,
    Steven Mac

    umm.... Movie is between 65 & 66 (5 faces of Darkness brings the Quints back along w/ WHY they had a thing for Kup & Hot Rod in TFTM).

    DarkAwakening 73, I believe is 1st Prime wake-up (where Prime's all beat to hell)

    94/95 Return of Op Prime is when he comes back for good; back thx to a Quint & OP uses the Matrix to counteract the hate plague/spores

    TMK, Prime is still around in Rebirth, as Rodimus is still Hot Rod (haven't watched S3 in years)

    That's how I remember it.

    I do wonder why, if he was all jacked up at the end of "Dark Awakening" how he was all in one piece when they found him and revived him in "The Return of Optimus Prime"? Oh well, it's just a show and we got Prime back.

    Actually, Optimus Prime is back in Rebirth and Rodimus is Hot Rod again. Rebirth was season 4, and it took place after Return of Optimus Prime (boo :thumbdown ).

    we all do.

    there was some problems with the airing date and producing date of dark awakening, (IIRC it was supposed to air right before the plague episodes, but it was released 20 episodes earlier)
