Transformers: The Movie

Other mistake: The credits for the movie say that they are in alphabetical order, but Peter Cullen is listed before Scatman Crothers.

Other mistake: When Perceptor pops up to tell Blaster to radio Prime, Blaster acknowledges that Perceptor is there before he even sees him. And I doubt he could of heard Perceptor because of the amount of noise the lasers were making, and Perceptor didn't make any noise. (00:14:45)

Continuity mistake: During their fight at Autobot city, Megatron throws a rock at Optimus like a spear. Before he throws it it, looks big in his hands, but when it hits Optimus it looks quite smaller and fatter. Then Optimus pulls it out and it's back to the right size again.

More trivia for Transformers: The Movie

Question: How much truth is there to the claim that if the G.I. Joe movie had been released first then Optimus Prime would not have died in this one?

Answer: The reason for this is the intent of both movies (G.I.Joe and this one) to kill off the old group and bring in a new group for younger kids. You noticed how most of the dead are from the old cartoon. The backlash was so bad that the G.I.Joe movie was changed to not kill off anyone (if you watch it you can see where characters were meant to die but the show was changed at the last sec to keep them alive. If G.I.Joe was release 1st then they would have died and if the same backlash happened you would have seen no-one die in this one.

Answer: In the UK we don't have G.I Joe, only action force so thats your first problem, and secondly the UK comics built up to the Transformer movie without no mention of G.I Joe story lines which may have appeared in the US.
