    Thanks! My brother and I saw this in theaters in 86. He was the big Transformers collector and the movie will always be a great memory. I haven’t watched it in a long while (soon to be rectified) but the franchise at the time had some elevated sci-fi elements for a kid’s toy line and a level of consequence such as borne out in the film by our hero’s fate. Pre-CGI, cell animation was the only way to bring to life a universe like Transformers. The movies hits you like a big hair, neon glam metal band from the 80s but as Joshua Zyber eloquently stated in his review ‘Love need not be explained or justified.’
