    I assume this is from the G2 ‘cartoon’?

    Nope, this is the repackage season from 1988. Centered around showing a five-part edit of the Movie on TV for the first time.

    I recall the movie had been played once on a LA local affiliate in '89-'90.

    This is a significant find. I’m not sure we’ve ever had such a good look at how the puppet operated. What a great peek behind the curtain of a piece of lost Transformers media.

    I saw this footage as an adult, so it doesn't surprise me to see it life size. I just don't think they had the technology to make such a seamless composite back in the 80s.

    Uhh check 23.24 where little Tommy pretends to be “snorting drugs” lol. Prime forgot to mention he should stay away from that stuff.

    Seriously though, what an awesome, deep-cut find this is.

    For those who do not know, Jason resurfaced in 2013, and it turned out that unlike many other people who did any amount of professional acting as a kid, he apparently just ended up becoming a normal dude with a job.

    Does anyone know why season 5 has never resurfaced? Is it truly lost media, or is there just not enough interest?

    Along with the G2 cartoon (which at least has had some international DVD releases over the years), the fifth season of the G1 cartoon remains shrouded in mystery.

    Didn’t know it was real at all.

    To me it looked like late 80’s CG. Now I’m impressed that they had a full size prop.

    I think it was shown during the head master mini series which I guess was season 5 as stated. I remember the wider shots of Optimus and the kid were done using stop motion.

    I wonder what happened to that Optimus puppet after filming was done. Was it destroyed and tossed out, or does someone have this sitting in their backyard or something?

    That is a cool find of something that really been lost. I would really like to see season 5 released somehow just to hear basically lost footage of Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime. I wonder if that will ever be possible.
