    FUN FACT: I cried when Prime died and the older kids I was with laughed at me. Jerks.

    I had the whole auditorium to myself when I first saw it (hooray for matinee screenings)...and they turned the volume waaaaay up. Brilliant. :rock

    I hope they actually check these facts, so none of the "Optimus prime was supposed to fight unicron" trivia BS floating around on the net makes it in.

    Shouldn't these people releasing this dvd already know all of these "fun facts?" They are the ones with all the resources...

    I didn't know the exact details enough to submit it, but the best one I could think of was that the Japanese went ahead with the Headmasters TV series without much knowledge about the Transformers movie - they just knew the toys were coming out.

    ...unless I have parts (or all) of that wrong.

    That's what worries me about this thing. Reaching out to the fans is always a nice gesture, but I'd rather they get their facts from people associated with the production, and maybe one or two fans that definitely know their stuff, like Ben Yee. (I'm sure there are plenty of others, he's just the first name that springs to mind)

    Oh I got one, and it's gonna be pretty damn brutal:

    Fun Fact: Cartoon Network always fucks up the scheduling for Transformers shows.

    Optimus Prime's death scene made me so sad, I could only watch the second half of the movie. Whenever I wanted to watch the movie, I had to get someone else to fast-forward my VHS tape past Prime's death scene.

    Fun fact: This is the eight millionth TFTM DVD. Something will still fuck up.

    Twelve words exactly.

    anecdotal fun fact: - My friend Dan and I went to the TF movie together. On the junk planet scene, when the Wierd Al music started up, Dan and I simultaneously looked at each other with a "WTF" expression on our faces, like something out of a sitcom.

    Factoid No. 1 Perceptor was succesfully sued for malpractice, by Elita One. He was forced to sell himself off for scrap, to pay off the lawsuite. With his demise, Hot Rod officially became the most useless Autobot.

    Factoid No. 2 The movie made Greyryder is a bitter bitter Transformers fan.

    Here's another: Fans still feel the Transformers Movie lead to the end of G1.

    It's also a challenge getting comments in as "12 words or less". :p
