Motto: "'till All Are One"
Today Hasbro, Transformers and Fathom announced a special return of the fan-favorite THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE in U.S. movie theaters this September to celebrate the 35th Anniversary! See announcement release below.



Celebrate 35 Years of TRANSFORMERS on the

Big Screen When THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE

Returns to Theaters


See the Original Animated Action-Adventure Film Only in Theaters

September 26 & 28


DENVER – July 28, 2021– In celebration of the 35th anniversary of its release, the world-renowned 1986 animated feature film THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE returns to U.S. movie theaters for two days only, Sunday, September 26 and Tuesday, September 28, for an experience that's beyond good, beyond evil, and beyond your wildest imagination! In addition to the feature, audiences of this special event will be treated to brand-new exclusive content.

Presented by Fathom Events and Hasbro THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE 35th ANNIVERSARY comes to movie theaters nationwide on Sunday, September 26 at noon and Tuesday, September 28 at 7:00 p.m. (local time). Tickets will be available for purchase later next month at www.FathomEvents.com and through participating cinemas’ box offices. (Participating theaters are subject to change). Please contact your local theater for individual safety precautions.


For millennia, the heroic Autobots, led by Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen), have been at war with the evil Decepticons, led by Megatron (Frank Welker). As the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons rages on Earth, an even greater threat looms. Unicron (Orson Welles, Citizen Kane), a colossal converting planet who consumes everything in his path, is heading for Cybertron to devour the Transformers homeworld and wipe the Autobots and Decepticons from existence. The only hope is the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. With new enemies hunting them down and dangers lurking in every corner of the galaxy, the Autobots take on a perilous mission to save their planet that will alter their destiny forever.



An all-star cast, including Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club), Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek), Eric Idle (the Monty Python films) and, Robert Stack (The Untouchables), brings this inimitable, explosively entertaining Autobot adventure to life.

“Fathom is thrilled to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the release of THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE in partnership with Hasbro. It’s exciting to give the fans of this cult classic an opportunity to see this film on the big screen, the way it was meant to be seen,” said Ray Nutt, Fathom Events CEO.

“We look forward to bringing families and fans back to the theaters for this milestone Transformers anniversary,” said Adam Biehl SVP & GM, Action Brands at Hasbro, Inc. “With thanks to our Fathom partners, Autobots and Decepticons of all ages will be treated to a one-of-a-kind movie experience celebrating this beloved animated film.”

Since 1984, the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons has come to life in movies, TV shows, comic books, innovative toys, and digital media, bringing incredible…MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE…experiences to fans. This anniversary of THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE celebrates the first feature film in what would become a global blockbuster franchise with millions of fans around the world. The next movie in the TRANSFORMERS franchise, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will continue to take audiences on an adventure in 2022.

Tune in to Hasbro Pulse’s Fan First Friday on Friday, August 13 at 11 a.m. ET for additional event info and more TRANSFORMERS news and product reveals.

But why? Does someone at Hasbro just want to watch a new generation of children bawling their eyes out? :-(

They want to sell the 86 cast in Kingdom and Studio Series, not to mention the dead Optimus Prime repaint. ;)

Calling it now, the first half or maybe three quarters of the upcoming Fans First Friday stream will just be member berries about the movie and how fantastic it is, then they'll speed-run reveals of Kingdom wave 4 in the last few minutes, and any other figures planned for 2021 that are missed out will just get a minimum effort post on the Facebook page months later.

Motto: "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes"
I'd love to go, if it is safe at the time (haven't been back to a theater since the whole mess started). I missed out on the 2018 Fathom events screening as it was on a day I couldn't go. My kids have seen the movie several times because of me, but they've never seen it in a theater environment. The theater near me that used to do Fathom events is still open (I think...). Not going to reserve any tickets in advance. I've been to a few Rifftrax events in the past, and even Shin Godzilla (while that was Funimaiton, not Fathom), they get pretty good support, but they don't sell out. I can make a better decision for my family when late September arrives.

Sacramento County (where I live), is trying to bring back mask mandates for all people in indoor settings whether they are vaccinated or not. Those of you who know me, know I am politically neutral, so I stay completely out of it, but as a family we made our own decision, we are all fully vaccinated, based on research and what was best for us, not based on what one side or the other said.

As for the FFF. I'm looking forward to Kingdom wave 4 reveals, and hopefully the Victory themed Haslab project. As for SS86, I thought everything had already been revealed for the end of 2021? Not sure how they can focus on toys from TF:TM, unless it is an early 2022 assortment, which really would be something considering even the shady Youtubers haven't even got them yet.
Bucket/Want List:
1. Micromaster Combiner Sixwing (1992 Takara) 2. Botcon 2016 Customization Class Ratchet (G2 Deco) 3. Botcon 2016 Customization Class Ratchet (Marvel Comics Deco) 4. Botcon 2016 Flash Sentry

Original Combiners Still Without a Modern Release: Raiden (TT MP?), Road Caesar, Monstructor, Dinoking, Landcross, Guard City, Battle Gaia, & G2 Defensor.

Just sell the following at any cinema showing it stuff like these as "limited edition", and give out prizes of extra merch for those wearing the best TF face masks.

Win-win

I saw this the last time it was in theaters as a fathom event, and enjoyed seeing it on the big screen again. Sadly the last time I went to our local theater to see Godzilla Kong, I ended up with Bed Bugs so I'm in no hurry to go back.
