    I remember he was on a ship that held other important dead Autobots and his tomb was empty.

    Dark Awakening

    *Edit: but that wasn't really Prime. He had been reanimated by the Quintissons as a plot to destroy the Autobots.*

    Eh, personally I like ROOP better then Dark Awakening. I mean the ending always irked me. What were they thinking? They killed off Optimus Prime and the viewers were saddened that their hero died. Now they brought him as a zombie. Have the grave shuttle that had him and other dead characters get destroyed, preventing any other old character to be ressurected. And have the crap beaten out of him by Hot Rod and "died" in a ship crash. Like that makes the kids any better? Prime did not deserve to go out like that.


    Probably Hot Rod felt saddened by the decaying Optimus & activated some sort of repair system. And for the explosions on the ship, the guy who wrote Crisis On Infinite Earths wrote this, he probably retconned it.

    I get what you mean but IMO "Dark Awakening" had a more matured writing and a step in a right direction. As in we see the tragic effects of war.

    And then he dies again if you count the Japanese Headmasters series. He never should have come back anyway in my mind, made the sacrifice in the movie meaningless. At least the Japanese didn't demote Rodimus to grunt like the american version did in season 4.

    Yeah, Hot Rod became a city commander like Ultra Magnus. Granted he got posted at nowheresville, East Milky Way, but a promotion's a promotion.

    Right. They had Rodimus Prime abandon the Autobots at their worst hour, the destruction of Cybertron. Well, at least Roddy took Blur and Shitpiece with him when he left. Even the Japanese knew the error too late. You can't kill Optimus Prime/Convoy. By the time Star Convoy made an appearance with his pet, MICROMASTER Hot Rod, the best of G1 was over. :(

    Actually, an evil scientist found him in space an tried to revive him, but it wasn't until the quentisson and Sky-Lynx worked on him and afew other bots that he came back. Also the same time BB became Goldbug.

    Japanese seem to like Optimus dying?
    I don't know but I hate Hot Rod because it was his fault that Optimus got shot deadly in his stomach because he couldn't fire at Megatron with holding Hot Rod as a hostage.
    This is reason enough not to have want him in Transformers 2 or 3.

    Well, to be honest with you, who knows what could've happened if hot rod didn't interfere? maybe megs would've just grabbed the gun anyway and be faster on the trigger than prime did. remember, prime is such a noble being. in fact, he should've just shot megs right there (remember kup saying: "finish him off prime, do it now") but no, he stopped when megs is trying to decieve OP by begging for mercy and just aimed the gun at him.

    I been in the process of introducing my little cousin to G1 and when we saw the movie, he screamed to high heaven that it was all Rodimus's fault that Optimus died.

    And when Rodimus got the matrix, he called him a thief and said "that belongs to Optimus, which you killed".

    I love how the eyes look so grossly out of proportion. Kinda loony-toony.

    Who is Shitpiece and how did he obtain this name?

    You're referring to Kup, correct?

    Whose post are you talking about?

    To answer the question "Shitpiece" is Kup, the name was given to him by Prime in a famous YouTube video called "The Rude Awakening of Optimus Prime". I'm not posting a link, this site sees one about once a fortnight from people who ignore that it's 2 years old.

    Me too, it would be very awesome to see. It's very eerie to see Prime that way and would make an awesome addition to my collection.
