Random nitpick but I thought it would have made more sense if Silas was put into Nemesis Prime's body rather than Breakdown's.

1. Not to brag about my ideas, but it's an ingenious idea to have a faux Prime on the side of the Decepticons. Think of how the tension would be for the other Cons to have eerie, distorted Optimus on board the Nemesis.

2. It would have been great for Silas' allegiance to last more than one episode. Megatron was pretty quick to suspend him for the failure of his laser satellite plan. It should have went like with Dogpound and Shredder. Dogpound fails his mission, but still proves to be useful, and at times doesn't return to his master in complete failure.

3. This makes Breakdown's death more pointless and cruel. Nemesis Prime was built up as this big threat, even Miko mentioning in the episode the possibility of Silas being inside NP, which would have made for great foreshadow.....*sigh*

It's still a great show, but I still have my problems with the creative decisions at times. :(

@TheLemsterPju I won't go into a detailed rant (yet), since this isn't the best place for it (that's where the TFP thread comes in), so I'll just stick with "I LIKE THE WAY YOU THINK", Lemster.

@TheLemsterPju All very good and legit points. The only one I'd debate on is the second one. Because in theory, Megatron would only want not just the best Decepticon troops, but also the most LOYAL. Clearly, he did not trust that C.Y.L.A.S. was either worthy enough to take proper place among the ranks, nor would he trust him to stick with the Decepticons for good and not betray him.

Not to mention that the laser satellite plan was probably the only thing of Cylas that Megatron would find to be useful (unless M.E.C.H. uncovered something of truly GREAT worth). He kept Knockout around was because he provided medical care for his troops and Dreadwing because he proved to be both loyally devoted and an efficient warrior. Plus, after Starscream's solo sketch during Season 2, he wanted to keep a closer optic on him. And the reason I believe why he keeps the Eradicons around is because they'd DARE not to oppose him. Airachnid is the only one I'm not sure as to why he kept around. She had trouble spelled ALL over her.

That's just my theory anyways.

Just marathoned this show on Netflix over the past few days, and it's amazing. Yeah, there are a few plot devices here and there that I thought didn't come to satisfying conclusions, but the voice cast is amazing, the animation is spectacular for the most part, and I just couldn't stop watching it.

Starscream is now one of my all-time favorite Steve Blum characters. Daran Norris is in it, so that makes it even more amazing in of itself. Frank Welker's Megatron paired with the character's terrifying design actually creeped me out a few times, and Kevin Michael Richardson was given a character that didn't demand him to give a monotone "I am a godly strong big guy who's really tough, GRRR!!!" type of performance. Instead, Bulkhead let's KMR sound tough, funny, and likable which is something he excels at.

Man, for it's flaws, this show sure did work some miracles at the same time. Love it, it's going in my favorites!

This series might just be the best Transformers show ever at this date and time in my opinion. The voice actors, the CGI animation, the story lines, the characters - all are absolutely amazing. Each character has their own distinct personality and some kind of back story. The story lines are beyond unbelievable. I will be terribly dreaded when the show comes to an end in the Fall.

Man, this series has gone so far. Starting out fine and finishing in scrambles. Wasting totally fine characters and plots for no real reason.

Sad to say, but I'm happily awaiting Prime's end.

I thought Airachnid sounded like Katey Sagal (Futurama,Married With Children,Sons of Anarchy). Thanks to this site, I was able to learn about the talented and beautiful Gina Torres. The voice actors don't get enough credit for making this show sooooo entertaining and successful. The dramatic, intense visuals & script also make this show really COOL & worth watching.

Okay, so I was wrong about the whole death thing, but I was close. We DID get a "characters of the week". *sigh*
I read an article about the creators saying they weren't planning on adding too many new bots to the show due to the cost and time it takes to animate all the current ones. Basically 1 character is 3 characters; Bot, mid-transforming and vehicle.
I'm so confused now since 3 characters have come and gone with effort to create them and only have them appear in 1 episode :(
also, TFP's new take on Wheeljack was pretty cool.

@Foxwolf Wheeljack will be appearing in a future episode, so the odds aren't exactly in his favour...

@NCZ lol. well, considering Ratchet is a scientist in this version rather than a medic, one has to wonder what Wheeljack's role will be.

@Foxwolf They have only killed two characters I hardly think that is a trend :)
NCZ (Admin)

I can guarantee that Optimus Prime will get killed off (and probably brought back) at some point. I mean, except for Robots in Disguise, he's died in literally every series (and in RID's case, that's because he was originally written as "Fire Convoy", and he only became Prime when the series was adapted).
OptimusSolo (Admin)

@NCZ Yeah I know what you are saying but I am going to go out on a limb and say he won't die in this one...

I loved what they did with Cliffjumper.

Did not find the kids annoying at all especially when compared to past human characters outside of G1

I absolutely LOVE what they are doing with Soundwave so far!!! But yeah bumblebee is stupid

I disagree though - none of them are really clones outside of Bumblebee - They are mixing WFC, Movie, Animated and G1 and most of them are pretty cool I think.

I know its not flawless but I am very pleased so far - If you want to discuss this further though the FORUMS are a much better place for long posts like these

Bulkhead's character certainly looks like a fill-in for Ironhide. Personality is pretty much the same. Hope he's not a replacement though.

I still don't see the need for a "stormtrooper/foot soldier" type character like these "Eradicons". It just takes away from ACTUAL characters, which there are hundreds to choose from.
NCZ (Admin)

1. You'll have to ask Optimussolo, since he's the one who owns the page.
2. Soundwave has no pictures and no confirmed voice actor at this point in time, so there wouldn't be much point in adding him.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 9:39 AM on Sat Aug 14 2010
Yeah, I'm starting to warm up to it. Particularly because they remembered that Cliffjumper isn't just a red Bumblebee.

I wasn't a fan of the character designs based on that teaser of Bumblebee fighting that Decepticon drone, but the other characters (esp Arcee) are looking cool.
