    Hey Everyone,

    I've watched Transformers the Movie hundreds of times and heard in some of the DVD's special feature interviews that they original cut out tons of scenes from the movie. The ones that interest me the most is when Optimus clears a path to get to Megatron, right before their final fight.

    It's said that Red Alert dies, and shows the fall of Devs. Furthermore, someone tries to jump Prime from behind and fails. Does anyone know if there is any concept art or video that ever came out?

    Thanks!

    Well I own several different copies on DVD and none of them have any of the 'deleted' scenes (IIRC they were never actually filmed).

    I DO recall however seeing some story boards somewhere for a few of them, especially the battle at Autobot city.

    Actually your correct..Storyboards it was...awesome thanks! Part of me wishes they would come out with what it would have been without the cuts...

    Thanks again.

    I did the commentary for the Sony DVD

    Allot of the deleted stuff WAS animated. It was removed for various reasons, mainly bickering between studios working on the project. I've seen some in rough quality and I own a little more on 35mm

    I have the storyboards for the other deleted scenes, there is an easter egg on the sony DVD to see the animated story boards of devastators deleted scene

    Cheers

    Did the UK version of the Sony DVD have the commentary on it? I don't have that one but I have the Ultimate Edition with the commentary by Chris McFeely.

    apparently it was Ravage who jumped Prime. I can't remember where I head this, but it was a long time ago.

    Thanks for all the replies.....

    That makes me wonder...what Ver of the movie do I have?

    I have the UK Blu Ray, The 2 Disc special edition with commentary (was that the one?), and the VHS movie.

    I do recall it being dirge...I would have loved to see that!

    Thanks everyone.

    when Optimus clears a path to get to Megatron, right before their final fight´╝č

    Well, without cutting, the movie may be more reasonable and interesting. I cannot imagine how can they cut tons of scenes as you said.

    The only deleted footage I ever saw was when the camera pans up from the fleeing Astrotrain (full of Decepticons) to where the injured Optimus is lying in the far background as Autobots run to him. It was literally a two second continuation of the shot where Astrotrain takes off. Or something like that. Been a while since I watched it.
    I think the same DVD release had a few of the deleted storyboards on it too.

    You can spot where the missing Dirge shot is in the film

    Prime says One shall stand . . . .whilst he is standing up straight looking at Meggs

    When he saids "Thats a question you . . " he is moving to stand straight up again after killing Dirge

    I'll do an animated storyboard of it sometime

    I can't remember - Joe Moore probably does

    I think you press select as devastator forms or something, it's around then

    Theres also loads in all the menu's, just move around until you find something then hit select

    With that big auction just finishing up it got me interested in some stuff again. Over the holidays I'm going to try to find some time to finish up scanning the storyboards. I stopped at around the shuttle scene. I don't remember for sure, but I'm sure there were some more deleted or alternate scenes later in the movie.

    1986 Missing Story Board Scenes

    Oddly this is new to me WOMBATKING.COM - Transformers the Movie Deleted Storyboards

    I have read about UltraMagnus attacking Devastator, but have never seen the story board before. I also read about the Dinobots being tricked by a Quintesson gate keeper into a trap. Does anyone know if there is anymore storyboard footage of that?

    Anyone have access to the deleted scenes that were animated? If so, would it be possible to see some links?
