    I was watching the reruns on HUB, and saw Heavy Metal War, first constructicons appearance. Rewatching Scrapper say "Constructicons, transform...phase 1!" brough me back to my moment. The anticipation of phase two, then seeing Devastator form sent me straight to a natural ritalin high as an 9 year old.
    Anybody else have those moments where you peed a little in your pants?

    I think mine was Prime coming back in "Return of Optimus Prime." I remember both of those episodes blowing my little mind.

    Is this limited to just the cartoon? Cause my "Crap your pants" moment was Xmas of 84 when I opened the present that had my first Transformers ever. Huffer, Brawn, Windcharger and Gears. Cars that turn into robots? Blew my friggin mind! It was like having a Hot Wheels, a GI Joe and a Rubik's Cube all in the same toy!

    For the cartoon, it would be the very opening of More than Meets The Eye. Seeing the transformations in action was awesome!

    I'd have to say this was mine as well. I was (still am really) such an Optimus fan-boy.

    Dark Awakening. That episode stuck with me for a few days after I first saw it.

    +1 for truth.

    In the modern era though, you can't beat primes forest fight.

    I was in school and feared asking the teacher if I could go to the bathroom. I had been holding it in all day as the kids made it very hard to go during breaks...oh wait


    To me Transformers were just another cool toon on tv but I got locked in so obviously when the movie hit a few moments came. The cussing, the death of optimus and Unicron. It was a sheer tour de force of crap my pants moments. I think that's why I loved the movie so much. It was an emotional one two punch.

    Oh, yeah! Awesome scene with awesome soundtrack. Also, Primus transformation in Cybertron.

    One of other crowning moments in G1 is Rodimus and Galvatron confrontation in "Burden Hardest to Bear". The reason to respect Rodimus.
    Starscream's death moment. It was "Oh, noooo!". Very unexpected and unwanted.

    Masterforce: when Scorponok turn Godmaster Brothers into robots; the piles of ash similar to Hiroshima 'shadows' was all that remains of their human bodies. It was creepy.

    Victory: how Deathsaurus connecting with his big cannon. It was obscenely.

    BW: cliffhanger ending of Season 2.

    Armada: the death of OP. Pretty sad and critical moment.
    Megatron's unexpected reaction to OP's resurrection.
    The first appearance of Unicron - in that virtual world where the kids was trapped.
    Starscream's death, of course. It's much more tragic even than the death of G1 one. Well, it's the most tragic death over all of TF series, IMO.

    Energon: when Primus make OP giant for fighting with Unicron. Also, the soundtrack of it was the most awesome amongst other Energon soundtracks.
    When the size of Unicron's spark reveals thanks to Kicker appearance near. It was hilarious. Hm, well, the crystal of Matrix have the same size. So it's logical.

    -Everyone get slaughtered in the Autobot Shuttle.
    -Optimus Prime die.
    -Megatron get reformatted into Galvatron.
    -Starscream get killed.
    -Unicron transform.

    As a kid watching the movie for the first time seeing Megatron pretty much execute Ironhide at point blank range.

    To me it was a defining "we're not in Kansas anymore" moment, I realised that Megatron and his cronies weren't mucking around, that this wasn't all fun and games anymore.

    My first Crap da pants moment was when I opened a birthday present from my little brother on August 2 1987 and it was a freakin' Rodimus Prime! I had never seen one in any store, and never have since.

    Though this moment almost happened again on Monday when I got my Protector armor.

    Reading about Ratchet defeating Megatron in 1985. I believe this was one of the first comics I bought and that story is one of my most beloved ever.

    It's been reviewed here.
