    • Hopefully. Transformers is an awesome series and it would be a shame if it doesn’t get released globally. I want to see how powerful this Unicron character is.

  1. AGHHHH I heard about this and flipped!!! I still have our family copy of this movie on a VHS tape. Sits right under my TV, it does, though I’d love to get a remastered version of it (and have an excuse to rewatch this beloved classic). I’ve been with the Transformers for such a long time. If you’re familiar with the franchise, Transformers Cybertron was my favorite, and Energon wasn’t half bad, either. :3

    • I heard about this movie and I thought it was interesting. I barely remember Cybertron and Energon >_<. Man, why hasn't anybody mention these titles? I might have to check this movie and the other titles you mentioned. Transformers is pretty awesome.

      • It’s a franchise much like the Zeldaverse where, if you give me a trip down nostalgia lane, I’ll be re-obsessed with for another month, then it fades away. But yeah, love it all, especially the old stuff/early 2000s stuff!

      • You can’t beat the classics haha. They should bring it back eventually. Transformers is a big franchise and it does get a lot of attention. The early 2000s were one of the best times lol.
