The Autobots embark on a quest to locate mystical artifacts to save their homeworld of Cybertron from being sucked into a black hole. But the Decepticons want to get their hands on those artifacts too.

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.Written by

Gears is seen next to Ironhide for one scene at the movie's beginning. He had lines but they were deleted. However, he is still listed in the ending credits. See more »
(at around 33 mins) After Galvatron shows up on Cybertron and takes command, Soundwave is drawn significantly off-model as he cheers the arrival of the new leader. The cassette door in his chest is incredibly small in this scene; it is not much bigger than his head. See more »
The original German version of the film was released in 1994 on television, and acted as a sort of pilot movie to the "Generation 2" recut of the Transformers animated series. The movie's title was changed to Kampf um Cybertron, or Battle for Cybertron in English. The second German dubbing was later produced for a cheap, bargain-bin DVD release. This version became infamous for its amateurish voice acting, its numerous translation errors and the stilted dialogue that rendered almost every line as a word-for-word translation of the original, regardless of whether the results made sense in German or not. For example, Megatron's shout "Die, Autobots!" became "Dead Autobots!". See more »
First of all, anyone who has left a negative comment on this movie has something wrong with them, seriously. I have no idea when I first saw this movie but I was about 6-ish. I'm now 22 and this is still a bloody awesome film. I have always been a big Transformers fan and I know I might seem a bit bias, but I own the movie on DVD and have shown it to a number of transformer illiterates, male and female, young and old and still the only people I know who have ever got a bit sick of it are my parents, as they have seen it about as many times as myself. Everything about this movie is excellent, from the new characters, to the fact that the autobots seem to suck at shooting anything ( as opposed to the usual 'bad guys can't shoot for doit'.) even down to what would be, if not for the movie it's in, one of the crappiest songs ever 'the touch', by the Loins I think. THE Battle, Primes death, the creation of Galvatron, the Junkbots, Sharkticons, Unicron, IT IS ALL GOLD!!!! Anyone who liked 80's cartoons should love this movie, and so should all your Kids, if not, I think it's time to go and get checked out by your G.P.
