    The movie itself was an actual print from back in the day, and it was the one with Spike saying "Oh Shit". In watching it for the first time on the big screen since 86 I noticed some things I don't remember from VHS and DVD Releases. (Minor Things like the Coneheads flying around during the big battle in the beginning. Could be just me) I also noticed some added seconds of footage that were mostly filler, usually involving Unicron IE: when he's talking to Megatron/Galvatron or when he was transforming.

    After we got a panel with many of the Voice Actors (Dan Gilvezan (Bumblebee), Neil Ross (Bonecrusher/Hook/Springer/Slag), Paul Eiding (Perceptor), David Mendenhall (Daniel), Gregg Berger (Grimlock), and voice director Wally Burr.) Some interesting stories were told including once and for all Wally Burr putting to rest any rumors of Leonard Nimoy finishing Orson Welles work on the movie. It was all Orson. There was also some debate as to if the "Oh Shit" was scripted or ad-libbed but in the end after all they have done and how much time has passed it is understandable.

    In the end they were all great very gracious and took time to talk to anyone that wanted to (Even the stereotypical fanboys/girls), and sign things for people. I myself got Gilvezan to sign a few things for my Bumblebee project. He also asked me to send him pictures when it is done.

    In all seeing the film on the screen for the first time since 86 and having my Daughter next to me seeing it for the first time was worth price of admission, the driving distance and the royal pain in the ass that was parking. Having these two goodies signed was the icing on the cake.

    Very cool. Do you happen to remember any of the details? I'm one of those people who can go line for line with the movie.

    Yeah, the fact that it was the first one I had been anywhere near made me jump on it. The fact that it was my Daughter's ist time seeing it on the big screen made it even better.
