Transformers was one of three planned films, along with 'My Little Pony' and 'G.I. Joe'. Sunbow planned it wrong, releasing Pony first, and then Transformers second, both failing at the box office. G.I. Joe was immediately sent straight to video.

When Sunbow was in the production stage of the movie 'G.I. Joe: The Movie' they first came up with the idea to kill off a lead character since the Duke action figure was planned to be discontinued. The writers for Transformers took the same idea, killing off Optimus Prime --but it resulted in a backlash, with parents outraged due to the traumatization of their children watching such drama in a theatrical cartoon. G.I. Joe's writers were forced to rewrite Duke's death to a critical injury!
Both Casey Kasem and Scatman Crothers appear as cameo voices.

In the scene where the Dinobots attack Devastator, Devastator hits Sludge over the head. As he does so, Sludge's eyes pop out of his head and land back in his sockets in a classic Tom & Jerry slapstick style! This is totally out-of-keeping with the style of the rest of the movie, so it must be a joke slipped in by the animators.
Cybertron holds the esscence of Primus the brother of Unicron.
Look closely, before the launcher scene, you will see Wheeljack and Wind Charger dead. (from Season 1 and 2)
