The Transformers: The Movie

Synopsis: This theatrical movie based on the television series (which was also based on a popular multiform robot toyline) did not go over very well at the box office. The movie takes place in 2005, twenty years after the television series, and chronicles the efforts of the heroic Autobots to defend their homeworld Cybertron from the evil Decepticons. Both factions are seething with anger, and that hatred has blinded them to a hideous menace headed their way. That hideous menace is the colossal planet known as Unicron, who has been ready to consume anything that stands in its way. The only thing that can stop Unicron is the Autobot Matrix of Leadership, which is possessed by the Autobots and which the Decepticons, through Unicron's orders, plan to take away from them.

Orbilus, look! It's Unicron!

The ships! Get to the ships!

It's our only chance!

Kranix! Ahh!

It is the year 2005.

The treacherous decepticons

have conquered the autobots'

home planet of Cybertron.

But from secret staging grounds

on two of Cybertron's moons

the valiant autobots prepare

to retake their homeland.

Ironhide, report to me at once.

Every time I look into

a monitor, Prime,

my circuits sizzle.

When are we gonna

start busting decepti-chops?

I want you to make a special run

to Autobot City on Earth.

- But, Prime--

- listen, Ironhide,

we don't have enough

energon cubes

to power a full-scale assault.

Ready the shuttle for launch!

Your days are numbered now,


Jazz, report security status.

No sign of decepticons here,


What about Moonbase Two?

Jazz to Moonbase Two.

Jazz to Moonbase Two.

Bumblebee and Spike here.

We're about to

send up a shuttle.

Any decepticon shenanigans

in your area?

All clear, Jazz.

Hey, Ironhide, tell my son,

Daniel, I miss him.

And tell him not to worry.

I'll be coming home as soon as

we've kicked Megatron's tail

across the galaxy.

Will do, Spike.


commence countdown.

Five, four, three,

two, one.


Now, all we need is a little

energon and a lot of luck.

Laserbeak returns, Megatron.

Welcome, Laserbeak.

Unlike some of my other warriors

you never fail me.

Soundwave, play back

Laserbeak's findings.

As you command, Megatron.

I want you to make a special run

to Autobot City on Earth.

- But, Prime--

- listen, Ironhide,

we don't have enough

energon cubes

to power a full-scale assault.

Ready the shuttle for launch!

Now, all we need is a little

energon and a lot of luck.

More than you imagine,

Optimus Prime.



Die, autobots!

This was almost too easy,


Much easier, almighty Megatron,

than attacking the real threat--

the autobots' moonbase.

You're an idiot, Starscream

when we slip by their early

warning systems

in their own shuttle

and destroy Autobot City

the autobots

will be vanquished forever!


Such heroic nonsense.

Fish are jumping today,

huh, Danno?

- I guess so.

- Hey, what's the matter?

Oh, I don't know, Hotrod.

Come on, you can tell me.

I guess I just miss my dad.

Don't worry,

Spike'll be back soon.

Oh, hey! I got something!

Wow! Look at the size of it!

Yep, it's a whopper all right!

Hotrod, the shuttle's coming!

Let's watch it land!

Talk about dull, Daniel.

Hurry or we'll miss it!

If you're gonna ride, Danno,

ride in style!

Let's stop here!

Why settle for a peek, Daniel,

when you can see everything

from lookout mountain?

A little to the left.

A little bit more.

Turbo-revvin' young punk--

I'll straighten you out yet!

Hotrod, look!

There's a hole in the shuttle!



What's that darn fool doing?



Come on down, autobrat!

Huh, not bad for an old-timer.


That's something you'll never be

if you don't get

back to the city.

Save it, Kup!

Let's burn rubber!

Ultra Magnus,

a cursory evaluation

of decepticon capability

indicates a distinct

tactical deficiency.

In other words, Perceptor?

We're outnumbered!

Springer, you and Arcee

transform Autobot City.

Perceptor, tell Blaster to radio

Prime for reinforcements.

What about me, Magnus?

What about me? Huh? Huh? Huh?

I can help. I wanna help.

What about me?

Blurr, you can help me

alert the others.

Absolutely positively


Nobody can get the job done

faster than I can. Nobody!

Come on, Arcee, let's go!

But Hotrod and Kup
