Default Transformers 1986 Movie anniversary day (Australia) - DEC 26th

This day 28 years ago, the first Transformers Movie started screening in Movie theatres in Australia... almost five months after it was released in America (August 8th 1986).



(image submitted 16 years ago by Ozformers member Seawave)


So, how many of us are left who actually saw it in theatres back then?
Or what did you think of it when you first saw it?

And will anyone be viewing the movie on this anniversary as well, or some time over the next week?


The 1986 movie would make for a good drinking game - take a drink every time you see an animation or continuity error.
(the alcoholic version would see who lasts longest - the non-alcoholic version could use water or cola and see who is last to have to pee)
Or do it with a Michael Bay TFs movie and take a drink every time you see an explosion...

Saw it in the cinema (at Chadstone). Loved it. Still no movie I've seen as many times.

Hmmm, now that I think about it, that would be true for me too.

I saw it in the cinema with Dad and my sister. Timing-wise, it was pretty good, since at Australian newsagents, Target:2006 was at the point in its run where we'd met these new characters (Galvatron, Scourge, Cyclonus and Magnus), but the big spoilers (of #83 and #84) were yet to hit.

Talk about false advertising! I remember going to Roxy Parramatta ready to watch the film and they told us they weren't showing it there!!!!!

Man was I ever pissed!

Till All Are One: A Production History of The Transformers: The Movie (1986)

I'm not sure if this has already been posted, but I know I've read most of it before. Interesting stuff regardless.
