This event causes Sam to follow the symbols the AllSpark sliver placed in his mind to find the ancient Matrix of Leadershipthe only thing that could restore life to Optimus. Unfortunately, it crumbled into dust upon touching it in the Tomb of the Primes on the border between Egypt and Jordan. During the climactic battle in Egypt between NEST and the Decepticons, Sam was seemingly killed by Megatron, only to be taken to another plane of existence where he met the Primes who died to prevent The Fallen from achieving victory, and they bestowed upon him the true Matrix, which allowed Sam to revive Optimus.
Revenge of the Fallen In the novelization of Revenge of the Fallen, unlike the movie, it is explicitly stated that Optimus Prime survived Megatron's attack, but was so badly damaged his body had gone into stasis lockand would likely stay that way for many years while his body repaired itself if not for Sam's intervention. Dark of the Moon film When Sentinel Prime revealed he had made a deal with Megatron long ago, and coerced the human governments to exile the Autobots from Earth, Optimus and the Autobots were forced to board the Xantium and leave Earth.
After it had successfully lifted off from the Kennedy Space CenterStarscream destroyed the craft during its ascent into Earth's atmosphere, seemingly killing its occupants including Optimus. Fortunately for humanity, Optimus and the Autobots had hid themselves inside the booster rockets, which were jettisoned and landed safely in the Atlantic Ocean and Optimus evaded dying yet again. He later killed Megatron and Sentinel, making things even.
Dark of the Moon Age of Extinction film Optimus Prime is SO good at dying, that he started the movie effectively dead after a human ambush in between movies - obligatory human Cade brought him back to life with a few repairs and a jump-start with a car battery. Even if it's not the miracle of rebirth we're used to, nothing kills our Prime for long - not even treacherous humans with exploding heavy artillery.
Age of Extinction The Last Knight film Optimus ran out fuel on his way to meet the mysterious Creators around Jupiter and was left floating in space in stasis lock for quite some time. When Cybertron entered the solar system, Optimus crash-landed on his ravaged home and was brought back to life by the impact. In part three, Optimus Prime dies after his battle with Starscream.
Like the Generation 1 Prime before him, he turns gray upon dying. Transform and Roll Out The Cool comic During their final battle on Earth, Megatron fired a devastating blast from his fusion cannon which was super charged by Starscream's AllSpark -fragment-powered head before driving one of his swords straight through Optimus' chest and spark.
However this, somehow, did not completely kill him as his cries of justice and heroics caused his spark to shine and made a reaction from the shard in Starscream's head, which flew at Optimus giving him new power and a new body. Tell it truly - the ill deeds along with the good - and let me be judged accordingly.
Following the creation of a Decepticon fortress practically on the Autobots' doorstep, Optimus had the others evacuate the base while he heroically stayed behind to destroy the GroundBridge to cover their retreat.
He was still in the base when the Decepticons blew it up. Darkest Hour Smokescreen pulled him from the rubble and he lay dying in a cavern for several days. Darkmount, NV His lingering death seemed like it was coming to an end when he had a vision of the bright light of the Allspark and spoke with Alpha Trion.
In the real world, the light faded from Optimus's optics and his chest opened to reveal the Matrix, at which point Smokescreen used the Forge of Solus Prime to return him to life in a new, upgraded body. Rebellion To defeat Unicron the second time, Optimus had to merge the AllSpark with the Matrix of Leadership so he could use the empty container to entrap his foe.
This essentially resulted in his own spark becoming one with the AllSpark, and thus in order to restore the AllSpark to its rightful place, Optimus was required to make the ultimate act of self-sacrifice, giving up his own existence so that Cybertron might bear new life. Predacons Rising Robots in Disguise cartoon Moments before death, the Thirteen plucked Optimus Prime's spark before it was extinguished.
Decepticon Island Part 1 Despite not being in the realm of the living, Optimus Prime appeared to Bumblebee in visions, first guiding Bumblebee to Earth. Pilot Part 1 Optimus was able to physically manifest himself for a brief period in order to help Bumblebee's team defeat Underbite. Afterwards, Optimus stated that he wasn't sure if he was alive or not, nor did he know what the fates had for him. Pilot Part 2 In another vision to Bumblebee, Optimus stated that he can only reappear when the need for him is most dire, as decided by the Thirteen.
It was later revealed that Optimus existed in the Realm of the Primesundergoing training for a new mission on Earth. Out of Focus When the Primes could sense the coming to that planet of MegatronusOptimus had to convince the Thirteen that he was ready to face him, despite not completing his training. In order to him to face Megatronus, the Thirteen had to put segments of their own sparks into Optimus, causing him to upgrade into a new form.
Optimus was thus sent to Earth, re-entering the mortal plane and cheating death once more. Galvatron's Air Attack Prime eventually returned many centuries later, now sporting a Powermaster body, and rejoined the Transformers' war after it had moved from Earth to the alien planet of Nebulos.
When Highbrow was captured by the Decepticon leader ScorponokOptimus Prime agreed to surrender himself to ensure his fellow Autobot's safety. Naturally, though, Prime did not expect Scorponok to hold up his end of the bargain, and he had Hosehead and Fizzle rescue Highbrow while he allowed himself to be imprisoned.
Their mission successful, Hosehead and Fizzle then sprang Prime from his cell, and the team beat a hasty retreat. Autobot Hostage After weeks of Decepticon silence, Optimus Prime decided to get proactive and sent out patrols all over the planet to try and flush the villains out.
None of the patrols reported back with any success, however, and Prime realized that there was one area of the planet that his troops had deliberately ignored: QuickswitchScoop and Quickmix were sent into the Triangle, and they did indeed discover and foil the Decepticon plot going on in the area.
Decepticons Underground Listen 'n Fun audiobooks continuity Voice actor: English Optimus had Bumblebee and Huffer plant false information to mislead the Decepticons. As the Autobots were in need of a new power source, he sent Cliffjumper to find Doctor Heath Blaisedale and had to apologize to the doctor after Cliffjumper kidnapped her. Persuading her to help them, the Autobots traveled to the solar plant to make use of her solar reactor, only to find the Decepticons were already planning to attack it.
While the other Autobots re-energized, Optimus protected them from an attack by StarscreamThundercracker and Skywarp. Ravage abducted Blaisedale as a diversion, forcing Optimus to lead a team and rescue her.
When the team returned, the plant was already under attack and Optimus helped the Dinobots drive them off. Unfortunately the Dinobots totaled the plant in the process, and Optimus promised Blaisedale the Autobots would help her rebuild. In return, Blaisedale organized a meeting with the President of the United States so the Autobots could forge an alliance.
English When Jazz brought Steve Guymo to the Autobot base, Optimus and the other Autobots realized that the Decepticons were behind the abduction of humans from airports across the nation. They were able to find the captive humans, whom the Decepticons were intending to ransom to the US government, and free them before engaging Starscream and his squad in battle.
With the Decepticons defeated, the Autobots returned to base where Optimus thanked Steve for his help. Some time later, as the war raged between Autobots and Decepticons on Earth, Optimus had requested the Aerialbots as reinforcements from Cybertron. Though they nearly defected to the Decepticons, Optimus was able to secure the Aerialbots as allies.
Later, when a power plant had to be evacuated of its human workers due to the fear of landslides, Optimus posted Denfensor at the location to secure its protection. Though he passed a military convoy heading towards a plant, he thought nothing of it, unaware that they were the newly created Combaticons in disguise.
Optimus then reached the Ark, and from there opened communications with the Aerialbots. Optimus had someone come into the know that the Decepticons were moving in towards the plant. He watched from afar as Defensor and Superion fought Menasor and Bruticus, wary to send more Autobots into the fray while these titans wreaked havoc onto the battlefield. After all, Megatron himself had chosen not to add his considerably weight to the battle When they spotted Mount Sheelahtheir two human friends John and Tim Gordon explained volcanoes, and, believing it to be of possible use, the Autobots went to examine it.
During a battle with the Decepticons over the volcano, Optimus was convinced by the two humans to retreat, ultimately saving them when Mount Sheelah erupted. Terror of Mount Sheelah After discovering that the Decepticons were kidnapping humans, Optimus sent Bumblebee to scout the Decepticon base.
When Bumblebee returned with the Decepticons' global crystalOptimus was able to use it to blackmail the Decepticons into letting the humans go. When Optimus learned that the Decepticons had taken over the hydro-plant, he lured them out into the valley in front of the dam so that Jazz and the humans could flood the valley, washing the Decepticons away.
Menace at the Dam Starscream attempted to defect as part of a ploy to get a spy into the Autobots' midst, but Optimus wasn't fooled at all.
He and his men concocted a false plan which they shared with Starscream, and while the Decepticons were subsequently on a wild goose chaseOptimus's team smashed the Decepticon base flat.
As they let Starscream go, Optimus couldn't help mocking him. Ask Vector Prime The Autobots subsequently returned to Cybertron aboard a refueled and repaired Ark with the defeated Decepticons, taking the Decepticons on Cybertron unawares and quickly capturing control Cybertron. Peace reigned for a time until a series of natural disasters began, the source of which was determined to be the planet Moebius in a parallel universe.
The Autobots assembled a team to travel to this alternate universe and stop the threat; Optimus Prime personally led the team, unwilling to put anyone in more danger than himself. Wheeljack, Hoist, Jazz, Prowl, and Silverstreak constituted the rest of the team; they dubbed themselves Spy Changers because they aimed to achieve their goal with stealth and diplomacy.
The team modified their bodies to match the native cyborgs using data acquired from the Sky Spy and traveled to the 22nd Strata but were soon attacked by the local Guardianswho mistakenly presumed them to be Renegades.
The Spy Changers were then rescued by the real Renegades, who presumed them to be potential allies and took them back to their flagship, the Rogue Star. Eventually, the Autobots formed a secret alliance with the Guardians as well as discovered the cause of Cybertron's troubles: Renegade bases on Moebius were draining the planet's energy. The planet's geometry had turned it into a crude Dimensional Interfacerand Moebius was tapping into Cybertron to sustain itself.
Hoist was able to end the crisis by triggering the bases' remote detonation sequence.
Cy-Kill was furious, but in the ensuing battle, the Autobot-Guardian alliance triumphed over the Renegades. Optimus Prime and Leader-1 shook hands as a symbol of the transdimensional friendship, and the Autobots returned to their home reality, secure in the knowledge that they had allies in places as distant as alternate realities. This article is a stub and is missing information. Toy pack-in material While exploring Cybertron's hemisphere of darkness, Optimus Prime became severly damaged, and unable to return to the hemisphere of light.
Having been able to send out one last message before his memory was badly damaged, Optimus found himself unable to distinguish friend from foe, and would join or rejoin whichever faction found him first. Optimus Prime Is Back Optimus toppled the mighty Devastatorstopping the titan from attacking some power-lines. He next moved on to blasting Devastator's back-up, Starscream. Highway Clash The following summarizes one or more multipath adventures. Details vary depending on the paths taken in-story.
See the book's page for information on alternate paths. Optimus and Prowl secretly guarded a shipment of microchips that could be used to imbue sentience onto robots. Posing as the lorry transporting the precious cargo across the Yorkshire Dales, he was attacked by Megatron and Rumble who sought the microchips to create an army of Decepticons.
With your help, Optimus may or may not have been successful in keeping the microchips out of the Decepticons' hands. So tough in fact, that he usually needed help The following summarizes one or more multipath adventures. Dinobots Strike Back In the first nexus, when Swoop reported back to Autobot HQ that the other Dinobots were being controlled by Bombshell's cerebro-shellsOptimus had to decide whether to stop them with an immediate full-scale assault, or consult the Ark's computer.
If he led an immediate attack, the cerebro-shells were jolted loose when his troops carried out his order to, "Bring them down fast and hard". If he consulted the computer, he then had to choose between its plan to have Windcharger remove the shells from a distance with his magnetic powers, or go with Mirage's idea to lure the Dinobots over Bandit's Bluff with an Optimus Prime hologram.
If he chose Mirage's plan, the Dinobots charged over the cliff and into the ocean, where they were salvaged for repairs back at base. If he let Windcharger lead operations at the bluff so he could confer with Skids about some strange activity near Dolphin's Bayit was out of his hands whether Windcharger accidentally tore the Dinobots to bits, or harmlessly removed the cerebro-shells. The latter outcome led to Grimlock telling Optimus that Bombshell said controlling them was just part of a larger plan, and the Autobot leader realized that it might tie in to Skids's report.
Skids and Bumblebee could investigate in Wheeljack's new mini-sub, but should he send Sludge along with them? If he didn't send Sludge with them, the odds were 2 to 1 that the Autobots would all be destroyed as part of Operation Black Coral.
The one possible positive outcome ended with Optimus fighting a duel against Megatron atop Mount Lomas in which Prime somehow split into his three components to surround his archenemy.
This provoked Rumble into "assisting" his leader with an earthquake that destroyed the Decepticons' entire superfuel operation. If Optimus did send Sludge to Dolphin's bay, he ensured the Autobots' triumph in four different outcomes! Three of these involved Optimus leading a full-scale assault on the Decepticon base hidden in Mount Lomas, and whether he followed Prowl's or Windcharger's plan of attack, Operation Black Coral was terminated.
Dinobots Strike Back Battle Drive "ummm Why is that thing puking up a Lego piece? When Bumblebee did not return for some time, Optimus began to worry, and sent out Prowl, Hound and Swoop to check up on the little Autobot. In several versions of the events that unfolded next, Swoop would return to the Autobots' headquarters, and inform Optimus and his troops that the rest of his group was under Decepticon attack, and Optimus would subsequently lead his troops to rescue them.
In an alternate version of the following events, Bumblebee would return to base, reporting that the Decepticons were planning to destroy the humans' farmlands in an attempt to starve mankind and force them into submission. Upon hearing these news, Optimus gathered a squad of Autobots and headed out to stop the evil robots. However, once they found themselves in the open country, they found themselves at the mercy of a Decepticon ambush; Bumblebee had been fed false information!
In one iteration of the events that followed, Optimus could have avoided his death if only he had listened to your warning! In another iteration, Optimus had to decide whether he should send his Autobots away to the safety of a nearby bridge while he fended off the encroaching Decepticon horde, or if he should remain by the side of his troops as they all made a break for the bridge.
Remaining as a single unit would spell their doom, but by sticking together, the Autobots could make it back to the safety of their base. Battle Drive Attack of the Insecticons In the third nexus, Optimus oversaw Ironhide testing Sparkplug 's latest invention, the Sun-Paka miraculous device capable of fuelling a Transformer for an entire Earth day after being charged for only an hour in sunlight.
Optimus Prime (G1)
As the trial-run wound down to an end, the Decepticons suddenly burst into the Autobots' secret underground testing facility, forcing Optimus to decide whether to order a tactical retreat, or have his Autobots fight the intruders despite his troops' low energy reserves. If he chose to stand and fight, he had the additional choice to either make the Autobots concentrate on Starscream, who is leading the charge against the Autobots, or divide his troops' attention onto all of the Decepticon assailants.
Generation One never had that. Oh wait a minute…. Youse space robots need roommates? Me and the kid are looking for cheap rent. I think people seem to forget that the Autobots were regularly hung out with an oil rig worker and his teenaged son. Not enough for you? Archevillethe crazy mad scientist? Raulthe Latino stereotype who won our hearts with his sick break-dancing moves? Or how about Daniel Witwickythe progeny of Spike and Carly, whose antics neutered Grimlock into a comedic stooge?
More like humans IN the brain! The fact of the matter here kids, is that human characters have been an integral part of the Transformers narrative. Even the Transformers comic books have a very strong presence of human characters. Human characters are necessary because when it comes to giant space robots, particularly giant space robots that are marketed for children, you need to humanise these characters. You also need to make them inclusive to the target audience.
From the perspective of a child, how cool would it be to hang out with Optimus Prime? Heck a grown man legally changed his name to Optimus Prime not that long ago. There is an appeal here. Without human characters interacting with them, they lose any means for the viewing audience who are children to relate to these characters. Transformers is not unique in this regard.
Take a look at Superman. They are constantly telling stories where they bring him down to a human level so we can better understand what drives the character. Who needs to be relatable? The inclusion of humans who are frail and weak by comparison to the Transformers in these stories helps reinforce the roles of the characters. It helps cement the Autobots as good guys because they always save humans in danger and the Decepticons as bad guys for terrorising them or using them as pawns.
Sure, Prime is a Cybertronian war hero trying to stop a planetary civil war between two factions of his people, but even though Autobots are not born fighters, they can defend themselves and have been doing it for millions of years. Okay time to ram it home: The whole point of the Transformers cartoon was to sell toys. This allowed television shows to be developed based on commercial products like toys. Before the s, toys were based on television shows, not the other way around.
Hasbro was one of the first toy companies out of the gate to take advantage of these new rules. The whole point of the show was primarily to sell toys.
This was the case across all three seasons. The Transformers were originally a gamble, a Japanese import that could have floundered big time. They put the toys on the shelf, they tried a television series and a comic book and hoped for the best. But this was all new ground to be broken at the time. So the focus was all sell, sell sell. You know what else sells? Hence the trigger placement. They approached it with the same subtly as a used car salesman.
Why this series was so sloppily put together is a testament to the lack of regard Hasbro had. These were half hour toy commercials as far as they were concerned and that was all the effort they put into it.
This was the case right until the very end of the series. The final three episodes of the series, according to writer David Wiseintroduced a new character every 28 to 90 seconds. At the end of the day, the failures of the Generation One cartoon were lessons learned that made future iterations better and better.
If the level of quality that was put into the Generation One cartoon as they did with the shows they make today it would have never see the light of day on television.
5 Reasons the Original ‘Transformers’ Cartoon Is Not as Great as You Remember | FANDOM
The entire point of this article is to point out that the quality of the things we grew up with were not as great as our nostalgic memories tend to profess.
I have a soft spot for the original Transformers cartoon, blemishes and all. At the end of the day, nothing new that comes out can be compared to memories of nostalgia.
