    Wow, cool! It's the drawings rather than the item itself that are the draw for me, so as someone mentioned above, it would take original copies of those to make me bite for big money. In terms of getting scans up, I'm sure that would happen. Where would that be hosted though? I assume hasbro would have no objections?

    I wish I could get this. Anyone have any idea what something like this is worth?

    Wow, can't believe the interest this has got so quick

    If anybody has any questions on this, just ask me.

    I have some videos made from the set that were used on the Sony 20th anniversary DVD, I'll upload them to YouTube later

    I have no clue what it's worth, it's one of those things that in person is simply amazing. You can literally lose hours reading through it

    Good luck to anybody here bidding!

    That pic on the auction that describes Sideswipe and Tracks rolling off Magnus, and Red Alert jumping off his top deck as Magnus transforms to bot mode... Oh, how sweet that would have been! I love TFTM. Beats the aft off the live action stuff every time (and I really liked the 2007 one when I saw it)

    Description says "it doesnt contain ALL known deleted scenes.....so does that mean there are more deleted scens that have yet to surface yet!?!?!?
    I would love to see a scene (if real) that shows the crash of the ship the decepticons attacked from. Particularly (pure fantasy) brawn coming to and in his last actions sees menasor and whatever other con combiner coming towards autobot city, smashes out the windshield standing up there, screaming and shooting at the combiners as the ship plows them down. Killing Brawn completely. Because you know, that shoulder shot could not have killed him.

    This...this has to be one of the most amazing pieces of Transformers history I have seen go up for auction. Whoever wins it is a lucky SOB. If I only had stupid money, I'd bid $1,000,000 just to make sure I won.

    I think every tf fan would see this as a holy grail piece of fandom history. I think we all wish we could nab this. Even the pictures brought back memories of scenes. Amazing to see the early stages of such a fondly remembered work.

    I know my bid won't last much longer, but I just had to try. And yes, if I did win this it would make the convention circuit for all to enjoy. An AWESOME piece of history.

    yeah, I would have worked with some web hosters (possibly this site) to get this completely scanned and uploaded for all to see. Its a really interesting item. I just can't justify spending more then 1200-1500. I just don't see the value there.

    I would love to get this to go along with my Neil Ross used original script but I think this is going to go through the roof, like 5 digits at least. Such a cool piece to own though....

    Putting these scenes back together in a story form is an art in itself. Thanks!

    Back in 2006 I worked on the Sony Transformers The Movie DVD providing extras and commentary. This is one of the videos I created for the DVD from the original storyboards. This video was made from the set that's on eBay right now!

    Sweet. You know we have all those Autobot characters now in MP form. CW Devastator is pretty close to a MP). Would be awesome if someone made an stop-motion animated version of this.

    Thanks for that video! Love how you seamlessly set it up so Megatron turns away from watching the escaping Magnus/Sideswipe/Tracks (assuming Red Alert has fallen and died) and Constructicons to face Optimus. Man what a shame that scene wasn't in the movie - it wouldn't have added that much to the running time!

    There is also the cut scene of Optimus pile-driving Dirge (maybe Ramjet) mid Megatron/Prime conversation. Right before it shows Optimus in the process of straightening back up.
