Transformers - The Movie (1986) (cartoon)
     
Directed by: Nelson Shin, Written by: Ron Friedman

Synopsis:
The year is 2005, and the Decepticons have retaken Cybertron from Optimus Prime
and his autobot warriors. Both sides are seething with anger, and that hatred has
blinded them to a hideous menace headed their way. That menace is Unicron, a monster
so powerful he devours planets. Unicron has chosen to take control of the autobot
matrix for his own evil purposes, and to accomplish this he has created a force of
super robots. By gathering the remains of fallen Decepticons, including Megatron,
and infusing them with life, he forms the Unicrons. With Decepticons on one side,
Unicrons on the other, and Optimus Prime lost in battle, earth and autobot survival
depends on the chosen one who must rise up to open the matrix and use its full power.
Who that is remains a mystery...
