Well, wasn't that just convenient for the Autobots to warp so close to the Space Bridge, considering how dangerous they made such a feat out to be.
I thought the kids were gonna be warped *inside* the building, not outside.
I'm dubbing those aerial Eradicons as the "Seeker" variant, as the game and book pretty much referred to any flying, jet-like Decepticon as a Seeker.
Think that fallen human in the same room as Soundwave is dead, or not (cuz, ya know, "kids show")?
boy, Megatron's method of launching the Dark Energon into the Space Bridge seems really... old-fashioned.
Ratchet: "Then by all means, let us light our darkest hour!" -- Oh, SNAP!!! Clever!
Optimus: "One shall stand, one shall fall." - Sadly, can't say the same about that overused line, though.
With the army of the undead having come so close to the Space Bridge before it detonated, what's to become of them, since they were apparently off of the Cybertron when that happened?
Starscream's eulogy over Megs' "death" hearkens back to a similar seen in Animated.
Ratchet: "And Megatron?"
Optimus: "Not even HE could have survived Ground Zero." - I beg to differ. This wouldn't be the first time a Megatron/Galvatron has survived such an explosion. G1 Galvatron survived Cybertron's destruction at Ground Zero too. And that was an even BIGGER explosion.
Why must Optimus deliver a speech at the end that pretty much rips off the movie speeches? Couldn't this Prime avoid that cliche?
But overall, this was a very cool episode and mini-series as a whole. Of all the humans, Raf was the most useful, Miko was the most enthusiastic, and Jack was... just... kinda there. Don't get me wrong, he was good, just not that special. I liked that Soundwave got more involved in this episode, but I wish he had done more before now. It was ironic that Bumblebee got almost no time in the spotlight, when he's technically the kid-appeal character. Starscream is sinister, but Megatron seemed... typical. Like Jack, he didn't seem all that special, as he was pretty much the one-dimensional evil villain that his G1 self was. Same goes for Optimus. Optimus was his Movie self's twin brother, without anything special about him to make him stand out from the other Optimuses of the past. I did like how Arcee and Bulkhead got a good amount of screen time, as it's these kinds of characters who usually get overshadowed by the more popular bots. Sadly, Cliffjumper did not follow in suit. He was killed off too early, but at least we got to know about him more in the graphic novel. And the Eradicons are pretty much beautiful Stormtroopers. The look cool and powerful, but they need to take a step up from the Principle of Evil Marksmanship. Still, this was a very good and enjoyable event. Do I think it was as good as or better than Animated's three-part opener? Not exactly, but it definitely has potential. Is it as good as or better than the live action movies? In a word, yes. Two episodes in and it practically killed ROTF. Could it be the next Beast Wars? Maybe, it's not there yet and has a long way to go to get there. Does it hold up well with the Exodus novel and the War for Cybertron games? Difficult to say, as its connection with them is sketchy at best. Final verdict, I give this mini-series a solid 8/10. it ain't perfect, but it's pretty darn good.
