Rewatching a glory charge now though would be awesome

I'm not sure if this has already been posted, but I know I've read most of it before. Interesting stuff regardless.
Bit late to the party but that was a great read. It's amazing how well the film turned out considering how little many of the key players had to work with. A tribute to the professionalism of all involved. Also funny to read that the drafts had a more gratuitous version of the shuttle boarding scene. Thankfully it got toned down, not for the childrens sake I say, but rather I think it would have been distractingly over the top

On this day 30 years ago, the *other* greatest animated transforming robot film of all time was released in Australian theatres, a full fortnight before the Transformers hit the big screen.

Its really bloody good. Like top shelf.

Tho I will nitpick for just one little thing thing, since it sounded out of place (and I re-watched it to be sure). During Prime's voice over talking to Magnus, he says "... as it was passed to me." I think following that Prime starting again with "Nor was I, but one day..." sounded funny. I reckon it would have been spot on if the editor started from "one day" and omitted the "nor was I, but".

Trivial I know

My nit-picks:
- The line you pointed out above - I can understand they didn't want to put UM's line in there as it would have been a "spoiler" that UM is the first recipient of the Matrix, but yeah, best start Prime's line with "one day..."
- They show UM in pieces on the junk planet, another "spoiler"
- Third and most unforgivable "spoiler" is a very brief shot of Hot Rod opening the Matrix after the line about "lighting our darkest hour".
- 2 different shots of Windcharger's body in separate parts of the trailer.

Otherwise, pretty good.

Wow, I am being very nit-picky This *is* the internet, right?
