Transformers: The Movie, Transformers The Death of Optimus Prime Animation Cel

original production artwork

A truly iconic piece from the animated Transformers feature of 1986. Not only does this piece represent the death of Optimus Prime, in many ways it also represents the death of my childhood. In 1986 I was in sixth grade and it wasn't cool to play with toys anymore. I remember watching the movie in 1986 and being shocked that they were killing off major characters that I had enjoyed so much. I still watched the cartoon through season 3 and was happy they brought the character back....twice. This piece has an original unmatching background from the movie. I like this one better than the original though because you can tell where the floor ends and the wall begins. Also the Hot Rod and Perceptor layers are one frame behind the others. Still, a ridiculously rare piece from the movie. I also included a screencap for comparison.
