Transformers G1: Favourite moments?

Hi all, so the 1986 film Transformers is my favourite animated movie ever. I also really love the TV show. G1 only, of course.

In the movie, I love the scene where Megatron has been beaten down and says "Don't leave me Soundwave" and Soundwave takes him to safety with "As you command Megatron" even though he could have just ditched the wrecked Megatron. I really love this scene.

Also, another favorite scene of mine from the TV show was the episode 'The Core' from season 2. Towards the end of the episode, the Constructicons are about to merge to Devastator when one of them says "Look guys, if we don't make it... It's been great being part of the team." I really love this line.

Are there any episodes with scenes similar to these two? What are your favourite Transformer G1 moments?

I've been looking through the episode guide on Wiki, but it's tough to tell what happens in an episode from the blurb.

Re: Transformers G1: Favourite moments?

My favorites go all the way back to the first mini, when Optimus Prime was less "elder statesman" and more "John Wayne." My absolute favorite quote comes when the Autobots have the Decepticons cornered at Sherman Dam and Optimus calls out: "Stick it in neutral, Megatron! Yer not goin' anywhere!"

Berger's awesomely OTT hammy line from Megatron's Master Plan: "It is over. I saw the Autobot ship, like a silver bullet, streaking toward the Sun, and it collided... collided with destiny!! I saw the end. They died in a cosmic funeral pyre!"

It's the way he says it...

Actually, Megatron's Master Plan has lots of cool scenes, from the Decepticons in fake Autobot shells, to Megatron's "Save the Humans" line (it sounds like he really can't say it with a straight face), Starscream & the Seeker jets totally trashing the human Air Force armada, Rumble dancing in the disco, etc, etc.

Re: Transformers G1: Favourite moments?

Oh, I forgot to say that I love the pop-culture references as well. Like "Come on down, Auto-Brat" from Blitzwing when they first attack autobot city. Are there many others in the show?

I find it highly amusing that Berger, a political candidate, seems to have his own private army in that episode (and refers to them as such). There are some amusing WTF? moments if you think about them.

Does anyone if Galvatron was really just Megatron in a different outfit? He seemed to have a different personality to Megatron, too.

Re: Transformers G1: Favourite moments?

Can't remember the details but there was an episode where Star Scream finds his old partner? friend? Skyfire on Earth. It was a step above the usual drek the show had for scripts.

Megatron IS Galvatron. Galvatron is just mentally unstable. they even have a whole episode devoted to his mental treatment.

Re: Transformers G1: Favourite moments?

I personally loved the season 3 episode "Dark Awakening". It was awesome as a kid seeing Optimus come back, even if he was zombie-Optimus.

Likewise, "The Return of Optimus Prime" was great, too.
