Because it's rock, not dirt. Basically a rock shelf.
a Cobra Viper wrote:They need to shore up the animation. Everything seems clunky.

If you say so. I'm inclined to disagree. If it seems choppy, it's because there's a lot of going on and a lot of jump cuts from one bit of action to the next.

Did you somehow miss the "All Autobots, come to Earth and join my band of merry misfits!" message they intentionally reminded us of in "Out of the Past" already?

I can easily see a repaint and new head mold for Prowl. Hell, his head now looks like Prowl as is.

To be honest, Jackie still hasn't really wowed me yet as much as I'd hoped he would have by now. In all episodes he starred in, another character outperformed him, IMO:
  • "Con Job" - Makeshift was a cooler Jackie than the real Jackie. :|
  • "Loose Cannons" - Dreadwing made that episode. 8)
  • "Triage" - Ratchet. 'Nuff said. :APPLAUSE:
  • "Hurt" - Miko's thirst for revenge only to learn how hollow it was in the end was more impactful to me.
I still have hopes that Wheeljack himself will shine on in later episodes, but for now, it felt more to me like he played second-fiddle to these guys.

No, not Ratchet, he NEEDS things! Like a body! :lol: Arcee, I like, but I could also live without. Though I feel the dynamic would suffer without her, since she's the usually-level-headed-subordinate...when she's not pissed off and run-and-gunning.

I just love Wheeljack's character, not any "battle action" that he does (which he's done plenty of ass-kicking. He just hasn't killed anyone important yet :roll: :-( ). If Smokescreen ends up being as annoying as Miko used to be, Wheeljack stays #1 (but top Ratchet as #2. You can't pass up that badass look Smokie's got).

But we never know, Wheeljack could be the next member of the Autobots to die. He's gotten pretty beat up by Dreadwing, Soundwave, and Hardshell. Don't know if he has much left in him. :-(

New Autobots should stop making an impression by shooting explosive fuel-- it might be bad for PR! :D

Well, we all knew there'd be new characters coming in Transformers: PRIME, but given the figures on the release line-up did any of us think it'd be this guy?

Given that a Smokescreen repaint was announced some time ago, I'd say probably. :P

Maybe the character's Bluestreak/Silverstreak - or whatever what he's going by.

While the IGN clip is called "Smokescreen in Action," it's notable that no one in the clip refers to him as such - they don't even know him. And without confirmation by the show runners, he could still be called something else. However, based on the evidence shown so far, I will concede that the character is very likely going to be named Smokescreen.

This show needs far more new Transformers like Smokescreen and far less creepy "boyfriend/girlfriend" dynamic between the dumb kids and their partners...ahem...in my opinion of course.
