That was Television only though, you didn’t see movies based around toy lines, that is until Transformers: The Movie was released.  An actual animated movie released to theatres that showcased all of our favorite robots in disguise. It shocked and dazzled us all then, and it arguably holds up remarkably well today. To celebrate 35 years since its release, the panel looks back at Transformers: The Movie.
