    Oh, just a heads-up. The Star Wars-esque opening credit scroll, ending narration, and censored dialog was in the original UK theatrical release. The film was modified so that the movie could get a "U" rating (similar to a "G" rating in the US). They probably did this in hopes that the movie would last more than three weeks in the theaters.
    The extra footage on the Australian bluray was originally sourced from a professional videotape transfer of the UK print. The tag at the beginning of the the videotape is dated 12/3/1986, which was a few days prior to the theatrical release in the UK.

    Man, I can't get enough of the movie storyboards! I remember seeing that a few years ago (maybe even a decade) there was someone selling photocopied copies of the whole thing, which is my holy grail. Reckon there'd be a market for releasing it? Maybe a project for Jim Sorenson?

    I emailed Jim Sorenson to ask if there was a possibility that the storyboards for the movie could be published. He said that he has access to them but it's a question of whether or not the demand would justify the cost of publishing and suggest I start a post on the IDW forums. If you want to see the storyboards published in some way you can go to the IDW forums and show your support there. If it's more than just a handful of fans, including myself, that want to see them published in some way then maybe IDW would consider it.

    I own 3 original copies of production used storyboards & a separate set of storyboards for an alternate opening credits scene

    All 3 are different as they come from different stages of the production

    I've toyed with doing a book of some kind as I also own all the original click tracks & hand written score by Vince DiCola. I might do something one day

    My next project is to animated the entire autobot battle with all the deleted scenes from the storyboards

    I wish I could get the storyboards for the full shuttle attack scene with the unused segment at the beginning. I could probably turn that into an animated storyboard sequence if I had enough material.

    i know this is necro sorry, but just saw this thread and such.

    Personally i would love to see the deleted scenes put into a dvd as a special edition. But some of the names listed were in the japan version of transformers which takes place after return of optimus prime and before rebirth, but what we do know is hasbro wanted to wipe out the orginal line, but jazz we know did survive along with cliffjumper and bumblebee at the end of the orginal movie. So i would say season 3 just had most of them retire that survived.

    Now personally what I would love to see is a new animated movie of generation 1 with all the way up until season 3, can you imagine the fights between the combiners? but that is my opinion :)

    This movie could be revoiced without all that 80's music in the weirdest of places. Actually, since it's a cartoon, it'd be interesting to see it rescripted as well. Are there any fan versions?

    Ancient thread I know, but what did the deleted footage you saw entail? Did it include the other deaths, Ultra Magnus berating Hot Rod, etc?
