SO guys, Part Five! The finale! What did y'all think?

They really loaded it up with the quotes in this one. I caught "light our darkest hour," "one shall stand, one shall fall," and Optimus Prime's speech at the end was certainly familiar.

Soundwave got to show some of his skills in this one. He's definitely clever. Not digging his tentacles, but that's just because they're tentacles. I can't say they weren't practical.

Still loving Arcee, still loving all the fight scenes.

Starscream is not doing a thing to make me love him any less. Ditching Megatron? Good job, Screamer. We're proud of you. Of course, we all know that Megatron must have survived that. He's not going to be happy when he comes back, though... and that means Starscream isn't going to be happy.

For the meantime, though...
All hail Starscream, indeed! :APPLAUSE:

Well, whats to say that hasn't been said already? The series is excellent. Perfect?.. No. But lets be honest,... What franchise of TF is. Defiantly my favorite of all the animated series we've had. (well, i guess they've all been animated).
Bulkhead is easily my favorite of the Autobots. Big, strong, and tough as nails. Love his alt mode too. I like how he has some sense in this series and isn't just a walking brick wall like in Animated.

Actually, this was the icing on the cake for me. I felt it topped off the final episode of the mini series perfect...

"Though we did not choose to be of Earth,... it would seem we are here to stay.
If you approach this planet with hostile intent,... know this....
We will defend ourselves...
We will defend humanity...
We will defend.. Our home!"

first i would like to say hello to all and glad i joined this site and after watching the 5 part mini series of Transformers Prime i gotta say i absolutely love it and can not wait till feb 2011. Thus being a Generation 1 fan i am glad to see Peter Cullen and Frank Welker as the voices of optimus prime and megatron. As for starscream i like this version alot instead the bumbling idiot he use to be. Soundwave is just awesome but i wish he would have his voice from like the live movie and i hope they would be bringing in more transformers to the show instead of the ones they have now. As for the humans i love this shows version thats all i gotta say and cant wait till more to come. One shall stand one shall fall.

The 5th episodes out? Guess I'll see it tomorrow, then. I don't have the channels.

I still think Animated Megatron and Starscream both where more brutal villains though. Because Megatron actually tried to KILL Starscream. Here he just smacks him around, which looked more painful, but every episode of Animated in Season 2 where Megatron was near Starscream, he tried to kill him. He blew him to pieces, but he still survived (because of the Allspark). I want to see more of that in this series. Megatron VS Starscream! Fight to the death!

I told everyone that they would be doing this Show just the 5 prt Pilot then around Q1st 2011 the rest of Season's 1 21 episodes will be aired.

What I didnt know was when usually Q1st is Jan to March cause some of my games are listed like that.

There at the end that was pretty much a gimme that more autobots will be introduced during the course of Prime. As I stated many timed before in each show you always begin with a skeleton crew with about 4 to 5 bots on each team with the Decepticons usually outnumbering the Autobots and 1 or 2 characters will get killed off early such as Cliff Jumper.

I was hoping CJ would have a more larger role in Prime as I loved the Rock as him and he nailed the part dead on. But it kind of makes sense cause I think the Rock is doing Fast & The Furious 5 right now.

I like Prime it is awesome the story is great and the plot is awesome one of the best shows on TV right now just sucks we have to wait until feb 2011 but that is cool I guess I can watch V until its return.

According to my caculations Prime will be about 3 or 4 seasons long with 65 episodes in total more if the show does well. I hope this series stays on for a good while I am in no hurry for another new series i want one that will be long at least 4 or 5 seasons and not short like Animated was.

I do think Megatron did survive this is Megatron infused with Dark Energon it probably blew him in to deep space or he got to Cybertron with his Army. When he returns I feel sorry for Starscream.

I see future conflict with the US Goverment and Fowler and the Autobots cause of thier outtings with the cons and the mess they made from thier conflicts.

I cant wait Prime is going to be epic.

He said it in TF1 too.
And in the WFC video game (twice!). And in the ROTF console video game. And in issue 12 of the Titan Transformers comic. And the first half of it was used in episode 50 of TF: Cybertron.

So, yeah, this line gets around. :roll:

Oh, I forgot about WFC and Cybertron, and the games didn't even make it to my mind, neither did the comics.

I am completely in awe over this mini-series! I thought it was a wild ride and I'm excited to see the regular series. My jaw's been of the floor since it's started! I'm normally not a fan of having a lot of humans running around underfoot, but I don't mind the kids - even Miko, who I do find spunky, outlandish, obnoxious but it seems to works for her. I like the dynamic between Jack and Arcee (who is just freakin' badass!)- they've got some good chemistry going. Raf, he's the essential kid/computer-nerd/hacker-genious! So, how long have the Autobots been on Earth, how did they get there, where's everyone else? What happened? How did the U.S. Government get involved? I love backstories!

This was a really good story, and I'm really looking forward to what's in store for us next. It's not perfect, but it blows just about everything else away (ok, so maybe I'm not a very good authority on that since I haven't followed a series since G1. So?). Remember the anticipation for the next LSOTW issue? Yeah, it's like that for me. I am praying this level of momentum is maintained - because if it does, this will be epic!

All in all, I like the characters - Bumblebee and Soundwave both need a voice - though Soundwave looks awesome, and a little personality is peekin' through too! I was disappointed with Cliffjumper's demise - I'll admit it because I love The Rock. I think the catch-phrases are fine - it's all a part of Transformers lore. Megatron dead? Highly unlikely! He's just gonna come back meaner...and he was already just deliciously evil! I liked the score - does anyone know if it was composed by the same guy who did Star Trek? It's dark and that's what we've all been saying we wanted - and this turned out great!

I've just seen ep. 5: God damn, Rumpelstiltskin is getting really annoying (hell, he is more annoying than the japanese humans, including Kicker). When the humans arrived in the autobots base, and Prime wanted to go the space, I hoped they'd go with them to breath vacuum.
[/rant]

[serious]There are a lot of close-minded turns in the show: in ep. 4, when Prime crawls on the rock to Megatron, what is keeping Megatron to blow or cut Primes head down? Why did Megatron want to get his army through the space bridge, when HE could have gone through the bridge, and conquer the whole universe? What is keeping a machine planet from getting alive like the lab accesory in the autobot base did? (Another twist I hoped for is that a giant hand would suddenly appear from the bridge - it would have been awesome)
Ep.4: When the autobots easily trampled through a whole ship of Decepticon drones and Starscream, why didn't they disable, or even better, steal the ship?

My rating: 6/10 - the writing is too close-minded, but I like some of the designs (especially Megatron, I'm hoping he'll get a figure)

What is Soundwave's interest in Arcee? I've been wondering about that every since we first saw him interact with Starscream.

Anyone else notice Soundwave took a picture of the kids in response to Miko taking his? I'm definitely seeing a hint of what could be a very frightening personality.

To me the music had that majestic/epic movie vibe to it from the movie-verse and they like re-mastered it for Prime.

I say in Prime we will get alot of back stories as they done with Animated so expect similar in Prime. How they got to Earth, how they meet Fowler, and how they got the Missle Silo will all be explained in a flash-back episode.

This is an awesome series the humans are quite enjoyable and not god-awful like Kicker or Mishca were in Energon.

Prime is going to be sweet lets all hope it continue in this direction but we can expect some episodes to tank.

Note: This is the 1st series in Transformers not to have a opening sequenece before the start of the show it dosent have one like previous shows such as Cybertron and Animated had.

I dont see it being fixed in Prime's return in Feb probably just be like it was before with the credits and then jumps into the action.

Overall I am excited for Prime.

Saw episode 5 first thing this morning, and the first thing I must say is this. Sounwave.Kicks.MAJORASSAGE! He is like the only Decepticon to kill a human! (That dead army guy on the floor, unless I was just seeing things.) Then, after Miko takes a picture of him, he looks back and takes a picture of them, like "Got yo' bitch ass!" then flies away! That was THE single most epic thing in Transformers history. Thats the kind of TF I'd be if I was a TF, quiet, but with a subtle sense of humor. GO SOUNDVEVE!

The fight scenes are almost as awesome as the ones in the movie, I love the zombi idea, even though it's a ripoff of one of my ideas, but still.

Even with all this epic awesomness going on, I still don't like it better than Animated. I know what you're thinking "This kid is freaking stupid, how could you say that!?" Well, I don't know. There was just somthing about Animated that makes me like it more. Like the art style, the characters, the diversity. I mean, it was the first TF show to show Optimus not as the leader, but someone who rises to the rank of leader. Its boring seeing the same Optimus doing the same crap in every series. They freaking changed it up! And had original ideas that suprised us throuought the whole series: Longarm, Sari being a robot, Wazp becoming Wazpinator, Blurr, Ultra Magnus, Starscream, and Prowl's deaths, and it only had one human. And she actually helped! In Prime, there are 3 and the only one who does anything is Raff. Jak doesn't do shit. He's just there. Miko is annoying as hell and will be the one to get all the Autobots and the entire human race killed. But Sari in Animated kicked ass, she is the only "human" to ever hold her own against a Cybertronian, and thats what I liked better with Animated.

Yes. Yes, yes, yes.
(I can kinda picture him on the Decepticon ship, using Megatron voice clips to scare the slag out of Starscream. :lol: )

"Almost"? I think they may be even better, considering that we can actually see what's going on. In the movie, things tended to be too shaky to actually tell what was going on.

Well, Miko did attack Soundwave with an axe. She won some points with me for that one. :)

I loved Animated too, but I think it's hard to really compare it to Prime. They're so completely different in every way. The animation is different, the tone is different, the story is different, and even the characters are different, at least in the way they're portrayed. Animated was a fun action comedy, while Prime is more of a dark action adventure.

All very good questions that currently have no known answer.

Yeah, there is a little something out there called Beast Wars that still pwns this series. :roll:

I take it you haven't seen Masterforce yet? ;)
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

You know, it's a pretty decent show, it's such a shame it has the stink of those two hacks attached to it. You can see their unoriginality and lack of creativity creeping in.

Great comment.

I like you, Burn. You're as cynical and surly as I am!

OK guys. I'm sorry if I am reiterating anything here bt i haven't been checking out the forums for a while I i didn't have time to read all five pages of this thread but here is my 2 cents on the Prime series in general.

I think this is easily the best series to come out since G1. beast wars was good but prime just rocks. RID, Armada and Animated were eared for 6 year olds and i couldn't watch them as an adult. FINALLY a series I am thoroughly enjoying. Good plot. they aren't afraid to blow each other away and beat the crap out of each other. I do wish they would have found a voice over that made starscream sound a little more like G1. I wish Soundwave would talk more often and hope he has his vintage voice. but love that Peter Cullen and Frank Welker are voices here.

The only complaint I have is the same as the Live action movie. it bugs me to no end that Bumblebee can't talk.

I hope once the series gets back on track in Feb that they find a way to bring cliffjumper back and hope Dwayne Johnson continues the voice. i found him a fascinating character for what little bit we got to enjoy him.
