Well, I must admit, that Predaking is AWESOME! And finally we got some Transformers turning into some kind of tank-like vechicale. I'm only feel kinda dissapoited that they decide to keep Airanchid alive...

I just hope that rumors of Vechicons turning into tanks is true. After all, Con's now are'nt hiding from humans, so they can use some heavy hitters.

There is never enough tanks in Transformers!

What rumors? Tank-moded Vehicons, as well as helicopter and truck versions, were made for the Prime video game, but not the cartoon.

We truly are in dire need of more Vehicon variations. And toys of said variations while we're at it.

One can never have too many Steves generic henchmen. Though I dare say we'll never see them in the show because of how many new transformation models they'd need.

If they already have design, then why don't use them? Con's could really use some groud based elite-mooks, especialy now, when Insecticons seems to have their best days passed long ago.

Because there's a huge difference between a design and a model. They have the former. To put them in the show would require the latter.

Not to mention that "they" are two separate groups. The people who animate the show aren't the same group who animated the video game.

You know, there's something that bugs me. "Prime" status is pretty flimsy. Somehow it's both a granted title, and yet Megatron was able to make himself a Prime by grafting parts onto himself.

And I know you could say it's because of being a Matrix Bearer, and that information is retained in the corpse...well, except Solus Prime wasn't a Matrix Bearer, Prima was, and yet she could still use her own hammer.

Yeah, with that preview that had Optimus saying something about a new prime (haven't watched the third episode, so I don't know how much is revealed), I was thinking Magnus might "become" a Prime. I also didn't know if he was already ranked higher than Optimus or anything in this universe, like in Animated. Haven't read any comics. Though I do remember seeing a comic that had him holding the forge on the cover?

No Ultra Magnus was one Optimus' lieutenant during the war for cybertron but Optimus was still the leader/supreme commander.

Yeah, and it wasn't a comic, but the Exodus novel, that first established this Ultra Magnus as having served beneath Optimus in the war.

Not our fault they haven't. TFWiki's alreayd gone and covered info on all three episodes anyway. People are still talking about it online and stuff. Unless there's some legit reason they can't, they should go ahead and watch it already. 8)

Okay, I take objection to this point. I deliberately avoided this thread for the last three weeks due to rampant spoilers and preferring to watch the premiere episodes on US TV. Just because it premiered early in Singapore does not mean I should be required to have seen it and have its material treated as non-spoiler info prior to its US premiere.

Now, as all three episodes have aired in the states, information from them is more or less fair game. So let's address some things.

I noticed when I was catching up on this thread that somebody said the premiere felt rushed. I can see how you would get that watching the episodes back to back, but week by week the pacing seemed okay. Yes, Ratchet was only a loner for about 10 minutes, but we didn't see him at all in episode 53, so just reappearing at all, and then being obstinate at first, was pretty dramatic. I do agree that Predaking should have been the cliffhanger for ep 53 going into 54 rather than Shockwave, in a show called BEAST Hunters, but we've got him now. Hopefully we get more Predacons. I know they sad at NYCC last year that we wouldn't be seeing all the ones that are toys on the show, but I'm crossing my fingers for a few of them.

Contrarily to some, I hope we see Optimus in his new body sooner rather than later. Let the Smokescreenimus Prime thing play out quickly and give us what we all know is coming because they don't dare kill off Optimus. I don't mind if Smokescreenimus Prime stays around in that form, like how I think Headmasters had Rodimus Prime and Optimus Prime at the same time, but don't beat around the bush too long before giving us the new and improved Optimus. Especially now that Ultra Magnus is in the show and clearly uses a modified version of his character model. >_>

Speaking of Magnus, I liked him more or less. His voice was higher than I expected. He is so "by the book" it's not even funny (yes it is). I look forward to seeing how he and the other 'bots play off each other.

Starscream is starting to annoy me. I thought he learned his lesson with Dreadwing, but apparently his personality will always shine through. He wants to be Megatron's number 2 so badly, but Shockwave is a much better choice. And so he's jealous. He tries to belittle Shockwave at every turn, and it keeps backfiring on him. Regarding that scene at the end of episode 55, where he was taunting Predaking, I fully expect that Predaking is, in fact, sentient and will try to tear Starscream a new exhaust port before the end of the show for that comment. Also he'll probably betray Shockwave and the Decepticons as per the toy fiction.

Whatever happens, I look forward to seeing how it plays out over the next ten episodes. Make it grand, guys!

Oy vey. Episode 18 aired on Vortexx and, while it only had four edits, they were some rather frustrating ones, nonetheless.

1. First and foremost, the new commercial break was the FIRST edit this time, playing ahead of all the preexisting break placements. This one played immediately after Airachnid chuckled while picking up the Polarity Gauntlet after she buried Breakdown.

2. However, that isn't the extent of what was changed at that part. Right after the new commercial break ended, instead of coming back to right after her chuckle, it came back a few frames later, cutting out Airachnid's line of "It was a lovely burial," and her turning around to start walking away. With that removed, the episode instead came back to Airachnid already walking off before we hear the buried Breakdown growling and Airachnid proceeding to mock his muffled speech.

3. The scene with Bulkhead and Miko turning off their loud music and Arcee scolding them was really trimmed down. Right after Bulkhead switched off the music, they cut out Miko's "Aww!", Arcee's line of "A scout should be silent but deadly," Miko and Bulkhead giggling at her for having said that, Arcee's confused "What?", and Bulkhead's response of "'Silent but deadly' means something completely different on Earth," before resuming with Miko saying, "Bulk, let's get our recon on!" However, in the midst of all that was cut, they inserted a shot of Arcee looking confused that was taken from right after she asked "What?", making the whole scene go from the music shutting off, to Arcee looking puzzled, to Miko's line.

4. Airachnid's line to Arcee of "You brought a new partner for me to snuff!" had the "for me to snuff" part cut out, ending the line at "partner" instead.


Also, during the end credits, the preview that played for next week's episode advertised episode 20, instead of 19. Does this mean... are really going to SKIP episode 19 altogether?!!

That would be really strange, since episode 19 has Starscream's defection, leading to him pleading to join the Autobots in episode 20. Maybe it's just a mistake?

19 is the one where they all get stuck in a cave. 20 is the one where Starscream tries and fails to join the Autobots.

For ma, the main problem with Magnus is that i expect from him to bring an entire squad of Autobots to Earth. It's kinda ridicilus, Cons retake Apex Armor, have Shockwave AND Predakins, while Bots lose their base, they lider is in critical condition, and all what they get is one guy ad a spacecraft.

About Starscream, I like him because one thing. He is a dynamic character, he played many roles during series. Lets compare him to Arcee, witch once determined in "Darkness Rising" all the time is exactly the same. If after more than 50 episodes you still don't know what this character gona do, it is good for the show.

That would blow their budget. This is CGI. You can't just add characters like crazy. It costs money to make these models. Not only that, but bringing an entire squadron of Autobots we haven't even met before at once is a waste of character.

Not unless he were to have brought a whole platoon of footsoldiers like Autotroopers. ;)

It's kinda ridicilus, Cons retake Apex Armor, have Shockwave AND Predakins, while Bots lose their base, they lider is in critical condition, and all what they get is one guy ad a spacecraft.
In addition to what PrymeStriker said about CGI expenses, Magnus's troop resources weren't exactly the best when he left Cybertron. Prior to leaving, he was overseeing the final evacuation of the planet, which included mostly the Wreckers and any others left behind. By the time all the evacuees were in the clear, all Autobots that remained (as far as we could tell) were Magnus and the Dinobots. Though, the whole incident with Ser-Ket, the Forged, and the return of Shockwave caused a delay to their own evacuation, leading to the Dinobots deciding to stay behind and deal with Shockwave, resulting in Magnus having to go on alone.
