i mean it in a happy excited way dude. optimus wasnt complete without his trailer. since when do u see a semi's driving without their trailer on the roads these days. optimus is a 18 wheeler. once was a firetruck but anyways always had a trailer. even the toys always included the trailer standard. the trailer was never an option. if u real transformers fan u would understand that.



what show are you talking about that prime was firetruck transformers animated show or trasnfromers RID prime in rid & animated was firetruck japanese shows i wouldnt know to much about but both primes had trailers connected to them.

priem in animated had trailer in 1 or 2 episoed that was it rid prime always i would like to 3rd party companie make trailer for prime for transformers prime toy doubt hasbro will do it

Dammit! I think there should have been a spoiler warning with the trailer thing and not shown the picture either. I would have preferred to find out by watching the episode.

I usually refrain from ragging on others' comments, but before this one elicits an even more inflammatory response, the real test is, if U a real Transformers fan, u realize none of us agree on a goddamn thing. Even within our own personal conceptions of the franchise. I'd like to see a TF toon done "right" and "serious", with all the human children replaced by the horrors of eternal war, and at the same time I'm disappointed that Animated was canceled before they had a chance to really try and break the goofy-meter by tossing in Marvel comics elements like Robot-Master, Nightbeat running around in his trenchcoat and developing some sort of gender-identity crisis, and even Japanese Spider Man taking on TFs with his Marbella/Leopardo mech. And I'd like to see the Decepticons win someday. For some reason, others here actually consider Beast Machines a legit continuation of Beast Wars and the G1 cartoon instead of wanting to see it bulk erased and forgotten like I do. And we all get along. That's the magic of REAL Transformerness.

Sorry 'bout the rant. Back on topic...wouldn't it be awesome if the human bad guys in Convoy turned out to be the Roadjammers?

I'd imagine the squishies are after whatever Optimus is transporting, making them more an annoyance than anything else. In all likelyhood, it'll be another one-episode-occurance rather than a recurring threat.

Agreed, you guys gota relax and chill out, theres a million and one different views, and a million and one REAL TF fans.
The show is not bad, but I DO want more story regarding Megatron and everything that left off with him. That said, I definitely get the same satisfaction watching PRIME that I did as a kid watching G1.
Now thats a hard thing to accomplish; These writers got to appeal to AS MANY TF fans as possible... thats a huuuuge spectrum as we all know, and they're actually doing a good job. I'm not insane over the show, but its def the highlight of my Friday.


The trailer is cool, too bad its trashed in the freaking trailer haha, waita spoil the surprise. I also don't really care if there isn't always a trailer. One of you said "how often do you see trucks without a trailer"... well, if you did see one, it doesn't make much of an impression on you and you don't take notice of it. Sounds like a pretty good disguise if you ask me.

I'm not gonna curse you out this time...no. I'm not gonna do it. Hatred has been eating me up all day long! WHY!? I'm about to explode, but you know what? No. :BOOM:

What in the damn hell do you want anyway!? All we see is Optimus and a trailer, and you flip out like it's the worst thing ever!


I think he meant the human involvement... and dorky elements of animated, prime, and the movies. I understand that side (if thats what you meant). I've never watched the japanese versions, but they seemed too... anime, haha. I like certain anime, but the jap TFs seemed to over the top... If anyone can link me to some english dubbed jap TF shows, energon or armada or whatever, i'll be happy to rethink my opinion :P

I know, I know, we all have our own opinions, but... the Japanese Dubbed shows were the worst thing to ever happen to Transformers! What was the quote... Oh, "We've warped into another galaxy on the outer edges of the solar system." Plus the horrid Animation, making the only expressions mouth-open, mouth-closed, and Kicker, the most annoying kid ever, the... I could go on forever.
... But of course, we all have our own opinions.

Anyways, back to the topic. It's nice to see Prime with a trailer. It does look too weird without one. I'm pretty optimistic about this show thus far, and I don't think humans will ruin it. I mean, as long as it's always not human villains...

Just a couple things...

First, most Transformers since their conception have been "Jap" Transformers.
Second, if you don't embrace "dorkiness" you fail to comprehend you still play with toys.

Cue Edith Piaf, because some need to wake up from the 4th level. :roll:

The shows meng, G1 american, animated american, beast wars american.... the shoooowwwwssssSSSS hahaha :P

And I own a xenomorph figure, yet the 4 movies weren't "dorky" at all, other than being about sci fi aliens. Its the hope that one day TFs might present themselves in a less childish way is all, and I tottaly understand that (not complaining coz I GET that TFs are targeted at youth). Again, if this is what buddy was really talking about when he got annoyed at the trailer, haha.

LOL. Well, since Smallville is getting the axe, he has to pick up work where he can. :P

I'm a bit more excited to see this episode now that I've seen a longer preview. Should be pretty entertaining at the very least. Honestly, I thought the series was moving kind of slow when it was just the 'Cons they were dealing with. And for those of you pissing and moaning about more humans being thrown in the mix, there's like 7 freaking billion of us on the planet. Not having human villians would just be the height of arroagnce and foolishness. It's practically a foregone conclusion that they will be there at some point so why do you folks even get your hopes up? If it happens on Earth, it's gonna have humans.
Personally, I'm curious to see what human ingenuity and tech can do to confound the TF's in this series. If anything can take something highly advanced and sophisticated and find a way to totally screw it up beyond all comprehension, it's the human race that will do it.

Autobots vs. V.E.N.O.M. !

Come on Hasbro, if we must have humans in our Transformers shows, give us Matt Trakker!

Edit: Y'all have to admit, in spite of the Matt Trakker figure we got out of the GIJoe line a while back - the Speedstars Stealth Force and Human Alliance toys would suggest that MASK characters & vehicles might be better resurrected under Transformers, where they could supplant the traditionally lame token humans, than GIJoe, where they'd be relatively redundant.

Wow! That was pretty darn interesting episode...
Prime's trailer was transformable into an open platform. (Too bad the 'Cons blew it up)

I might be wrong, but I assume that at least some of those "Self-proclaimed soldiers" got killed in the road hold-off.

The "MECH" organisation had pretty neat tech.

Was that really the first sign that Jack might have fallen for Miko? The crowd goes wild and the fandom gets a boost! Wonder how that comes out?

Something tells me this isn't the only time we see Silas. Wonder if the 'Bots are gona break the Da Vinci's code sometime?

I guess that the Vehicons are now accepting Starscream as their new master.

Silas scanned Optimus. (Will he find The Matrix?)

Autobots cargo transaction was neat.

The 'Bots displayed some serious fighting skills/styles against the Vehicons (I guess: Bumblebee-boxing, Arcee-martial arts, but not so sure about OP and Bulkie)

We learn that the Eradicons can fight, but are no match for Autobots, but they do cheat. Using tree against Optimus.

When Miko asumes that they're gonna die, She wants Bulkhead to get her guitar? That's it? She has to get her priorities right. Still a cool character though.

So Miko isn't the only one who gets sick when in a currently transforming machine/robot. Well, at least Fowler could hold it in.

Wouldn't it have been easier to cut off the locomotive and then stop the rest of the trains?

Speaking of explosion...

Too bad it blew up ironically right after we got psyched about it. Maybe Prime uses them like we use clothes, and he has foldable trailers in his closet! :lol: :lol: :lol:

EDIT; I was expecting Silas to say "We are G.I Joe!". Seriously. I actually expected him to say that. :lol: :lol: :lol:
