I'm all for homages and such, but did he really have to include the Legion from Kiss Players?

I'm not sure what exactly Megatron's ultimate plan was, but I'm guessing it's far more ambitious than his Decepticons can handle.


Is Japan being weaponized/fortified a reference to something? Seemingly every other thing is.


EDIT: Love how Waspinator is in pieces at the end!

Good catch. That homages a manga issue from TV Magazine.

I remember looking up clips from the English Headmasters dub, and saw a clip of Galvatron transforming into a planet and declaring, "I am Unicorn!" I sort of want to know what is up with Grand Galvatron now.

Grand Galvatron was to have been the ultimate result of Galvatron's long term master plan for the middle arc of the Headmasters cartoon. Throughout the midway point of the show, the Decepticons had been conducting a long term campaign of raiding planet after planet for their energy resources, with Galvatron keeping the true purpose of all this energy looting a secret. Eventually, though, his plans came to light when his confided his true plan with Sixshot: He was going to use all the harvested energy to reconstruct the planet Earth into a gigantic new body for himself called "Grand Galvatron", and become ruler of the universe. Though, this plan to incorporate the Earth into Galvatron's systems had one small detail that did not sit well with Sixshot: In order for Galvatron to complete this goal, he would also require that some parts from the bodies of the best of the best Decepticons (which included Sixshot) be integrated into Galvatron to compensate for any weaknesses he'd have.

Though, this plan never came to fruition since Galvatron was killed in battle before the plan could be set in motion.

Here's a video with more on the subject:


And here's the silly Malaysian English version that you mentioned:

The Alya from Torkulon? Sneaky.

You mean the circles, or the analogy? If the latter, at least the helmet designs of Super Megatron and Animated (Earth Mode) Megatron are a match.

But we weren't arguing... :-(

Anywho, it seems the new artist is taking a different approach to senaking in obscure stuff. Whereas we first had tons of obscure characters, now we have complete episodes. The previous one mainly spoofed The Master Builders, the one before that City of Steel, now we have these: Transformers the Movie with Galvatron's birth down to the grid pattern in the background, and Starscream's coronation scene. And then Headmasters' Birth of the Fantastic Double Prime with Optimus and Rodimus Prime at the same time, obviously. Webworld, any episode with Galvatron's sparking (like FFoD pt.2 and The Big Broadcast of 2006)... Are there more?

I'm not really sure how it's a homage to Animated Megatron since the homage in question only comes from the deco, which is Super Megatron-based. The shape wasn't in question.

Otherwise, we'd have to label the helmet a homage to Animated Megatron in every single issue it appears in since it's the standard Kre-O Megatron helmet, and no one's claiming the same for the Sharkticon Megatron helmet yet the only thing about that helmet that homages Sharkticon Megatron is just its deco.

And I was talking from a deco point of view with the Kre-O helmets. I also said that between Animated Megatron and Super Megatron individually, the helmet designs match.

Well, what is it about the deco of Animated Megatron's helmet that would make a Kre-O version of it different from the regular Kre-O Megatron helmet? Since the "SM" is the only thing on the helmet that points it to Super Megatron.

Well I'll be darned. The "S" looked like two circles to me, that's what threw me off.

Heh, Blades gets attacked by Decepticons with emergency vehicle alts. Well, I don't know if Cannonball technically has one, but he's repainted from them at least. Probably would've been more appropriate to use Barricade or Tailwhip or whatever other Protecta-Cons there are.

First Aid, not Blades. What's interesting is that they retained their current US names, down to Streetwise being renamed Streetsmart.

"Thrust" is indeed Skyfeather and the other guy is indeed Heatrock from the Gaia Guardian kits. Good eye. :)

Well, the Japanese version of Prime, Arachnid is a seductive, perverted hormon driven fangirl.

She even sings when she is chasing Jack(or what's his name?)
