Transformers: The Movie Trivia
We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
Thanks to Michael ManzanoTransformers 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.
Thanks to Michael ManzanoWhen 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!
Thanks to Rick BarkhouseOrson Welles did the voice for Unicron. He sadly passed after making Transformers the Movie.
Thanks to GiorgioIn Italy Autobots were called "Autorobots", Decepticons became "Distructors", and the Italian name of Optimus Prime is Commander.
Thanks to Cliff ColemanScatman Crothers (The Shining-original version) was the voice of Jazz, sadly this was the last movie he played in before his death.
Thanks to Cliff ColemanOh Sh*t was edited out of the movie when Spike says it after he blows up the moon to stop Unicron. Instead there is a pause before the next phrase "What are we going to do now?"
Thanks to Cliff ColemanThe voice of Blurr, John Moschitta Jr, holds the Guiness World record of "fastest talker." He is also the Micro Machines spokesman.
Thanks to Cliff ColemanThe script was written 2 years before the new Autobot characters were introduced in 1984 and 85.
Thanks to Tom WiddowsEric Idle of Monty Python fame also lends his vocal talents as Wreck-Gar.
Rewind ArchiveOptimus Prime originally was not going to return but when they decided to bring him back they re-did the episode "Dark Awakening".
Rewind ArchiveThe Movie is refered to as "Till all are One" in some other countries.
Thanks to Skyknight0079Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Michael Bell, Chris Latta and Gregg Berger are in G.I. Joe and transformers movies!
Rewind ArchiveUltra Magnus is Optimus Prime's brother hence the reason the figure was a white Optimus Prime that hooks into the trailer.
Thanks to Paul LIn 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.
Rewind ArchiveCybertron holds the esscence of Primus the brother of Unicron.
Rewind ArchiveLook closely, before the launcher scene, you will see Wheeljack and Wind Charger dead. (from Season 1 and 2)
Rewind ArchiveStarscream comes back as a ghost in Season 3.
Thanks to SKyknight0079In the scene with autobot city when Galvatron attacks, you can see Snarl (Stegosaur Dinobot) running from laser fire. He is not anywhere else in the movie!
Thanks to KevinThe voice for Galvatron was Leonard Nimoy who also played Spock from "Star Trek".
There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".
But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "Transformers: The Movie".
