So how many homages is that in one episode?

Omega Keys? Cybertron or WFC?
Dark Star Sabre? Armada?
The Covenant of Primus ? Exodus?
Tomb of the Primes? Egypt? ROTF
and the Decepticon Space Bridge on the Dark of the Moon?

okay maybe that last one was a little sad....

so until somebody call "OMEGA KEY POWER".....

I take it that today's episode happened on a schoolday- no Jack/Miko/Raph.

oh yes and great casting, George Takei as Alpha Trion, :BOWDOWN: :BOWDOWN: :BOWDOWN: :BOOM:

no, it was just hidden back behind the moon because that's a good place to hide it. That space bridge was previously located in a cave.

Other series have hidden stuff behind the moon for the same reason (it's a good hiding place). Like Cybertron hiding the ship Atlantis back there for one episode.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Pretty much both. Confusing, right?

Dark Star Sabre? Armada?


Uhm, Vorpal Saber? Dark Saber? Yep, Armada reference.

The Covenant of Primus ? Exodus?


Yup.

Tomb of the Primes? Egypt? ROTF


Yup x2.

and the Decepticon Space Bridge on the Dark of the Moon?


Behind it.

They don't do that here. They're supposed to restore Cybertron, so I don't think they harness any particular powers for battle per TFC.

I take it that today's episode happened on a schoolday- no Jack/Miko/Raph.


Well, Jack got in trouble in the last episode, so I wouldn't be surprised if Arcee told his mother. And Raf's getting relocated by Fowler, but who cares where Miko is.

oh yes and great casting, George Takei as Alpha Trion, :BOWDOWN: :BOWDOWN: :BOWDOWN: :BOOM:


Teehehehehehhee. :grin:

The cyber Planet Keys restored "life" to Cybertron. The Cyber Keys are what he's thinking of (which is understandable since the Hasbro toys called every Cyber Key toy a "Cyber Planet Key" with only the show making a distinction between the two).

I know that's what he's talking about. I don't expect them to randomly yell "Omega Key Power!" for new weapons and plunge the Omega Lock in the core to make Cybertron transform is my point.

really enjoying prime especially in the last couple of episode where it has become very dark

even the worse prime episode, in any 20 minutes outclasses anything michael bay and co came up with.
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

Though, for the record, beign dark for the sake of being dark a good show does not make. ;)

Yeah, I'll agree that even "Darkness Rising" was better than the movies. :P
