That makes it sound like Knock Out and Starscream team up...to me, anyway.
Either way, I fear for Knock Out's safety, even with the Resonance Blaster. He doesn't always have the best luck.
Still, it will be nice to see him get some action. :CON:

I don't like where these episodes are going. I am not fond of all these mystical weapons. Soon I'm going to here Prime yelling "power sword activate". These characters are machines, one wants a new sword, they can build it, one wants to go faster, have ratchet or knockout upgrade your body. I don't want to see magic in transformers, I had enough of that in TRoF movie with the primes and the dumbass matrix. I also never liked beast machines because of this same reason.

Dude, they're not mere machines. They're super robot lifeforms. There's been supernatural elements in this meta-series ever since the Creation Matrix's introduction in 1985. Why, even their Sparks are almost "magical" in nature.

Anyone else reminded of Gigantion with the key sitting in the woods like that?

Maybe Zelda...

I dunno. "Alpha/Omega" was epic, but I feel like [spoiler]the Star Saber's time was cut short, and that Megatron forged the Dark Saber too quickly. I mean, at least in Armada they actually used the Mini-Con weapons for several episodes, i.e. how Hot Shot owned the Cons with the Star Saber, but getting beaten by Scavenger and betrayed by Sideways hit him hard. Meanwhile, in Prime, the Star Saber is an epic sword, but gets broken by some Dark Energon, and the only artifact anyone's actually using is the phase shifter. Sure, Screamer's got Red Energon, Megs has the Dark Saber, and KO's gonna have the Resonance Blaster, but how long are those going to last? If you have plot devices in a series, you should use them.[/spoiler]

The 'cons also have the Forge of Solus Prime. Let's not forget that. :P

And what've they done with that? [spoiler]Create an over-powered weapon, that's all.[/spoiler]

If he has more Dark Energon, which I'm pretty sure he does, he could make one for every [named] Decepticon! ;)^

No. I don't want Dark Energon to [strike]become the new Bumblebee[/strike] be more overpowered than it apparently already is.

This show is like the third or fourth brother of successful TF shows. The first is G1, second is Beast Wars and (maybe) third is Animated.

Actually, if a chunk of Dark Energon can bring up a planet full of the undead...

but Megatron wouldn't do that anyway. He'd give one to Soundwave at least, but tell me when he's gone head to head with an Autobot other than Wheeljack. I don't think Megatron trusts anyone else with such a powerful weapon, given the events that took place with Starscream and Airachnid.

They were going to used the Spark Extractor in "Flying Mind" until the living warship nixed that plan.
