    I read that the 1986 movie went through several ideas and projects before ending up the way it was. Among the proposed ideas there was: Optimus Prime merging with Cybertron to fight Unicron, the concept of the Spark introduced in the movie (the Matrix was originally ment to be Optimus Spark).. does anyone know all the early ideas for this movie?

    Kinda stupid that the Transformers: The Movie can not be discussed in a Transformers Movie forum.

    Yeah, we certainly wouldn't want to challenge the integrity of those masterpieces.

    I'm sure most of the people around here weren't even born when this movie came out.

    I thought this thread was going to be about early drafts for the movies. For example, Starscream, Biitzwing, and Devastator are a trio of jets in a draft for the first film.

    You can read most of the proposed ideas on Tfwiki. Like originally the battle of autobot city was much more grand scale. Something with an Autobot dragon and lotsnof other stuff.

    I've heard that the G1 Predacons were originally going to be Autobots named the Anibots and were going to be appear in the 86 movie but were later change dot be Decepticons. While that original idea wasn't bad I like how in the end they've made a team of mammals be part of the bad guys whereas the Dinobots whosealt modes usually reserved for characters of destruction were good guys. Makes a nice subversive take if you think about it.

    ^ Yeah at some point there was suppose to be some kind of 'Zoo' in Autobot City and there was a combiner team of animal bots called the Ani-Bots.

    One of my favorite early ideas that I wish I could see animated showcased the Autobots left behind while the main cast went back to Cybertron. A guerrilla warfare type of deal goes down as Blaster leads the few survivors, I think thats when Windcharger was originally suppose to die as Smokescreen would of died earlier alongside Wheeljack (replaced by Windcharger in the final cut) but someone dies by carpet bombing and Gears was also a victim.

    We already have seen story boards that would of added Red Alert, Mirage, & Trailbreaker as casualties during the battle in Autobot City.

    And that originally Blaster was suppose to have a scorpion & tiger cassette instead of Ramhorn with Rewind & Eject coming from the planned cassette named Bolt.
