Ol' Snokey is back, plucked from the ashes of his last showing in Armada. Finally seeing a new Autobot after all those Cons is refreshing. Should be an interesting change so long as he doesn't go the way of Skyquake or Makeshift.

This I got to see :-?

Smokescreen is one of the most awesome characters in prime that I have seen so far!



This is going to be great :D

I like him already! Face looks a little thin and narrow ... but I love the personality we see, and overall he looks great!

Well, from the clip is seems like we have our answer as to why Jack is teaming with him.

Its not to split up Jack and Arcee.

Its because teaming him up with Miko would be a freaking Suicide Squad.

I'm just not very impressed with this show anymore. Why did he make a metal on metal screeching noise when he slide through the dirt? They need to shore up the animation. Everything seems clunky. How do none of the Autobots know this bot, but he happened to just find them on Earth on his own and by himself?

He just jumps over Bee and Arcee, with a really bad camera motion to boot, to the frontline of the skirmish, picks off one or two 'cons, and dances around avoiding very few incoming shots. *sigh* Maybe season 3 will be good.

Glad that I sided with the images that Sabrblade and others gave out! :lol:

Now I am wondering how he will fare out for me in the series, and if he will be added to my "Collection of Fame" as well! 8)

Haha! Yes! I knew it!

And to all that had ever doubted the power of Smokescreen:



HAHAHAHAH! Now give us a toy. And don't make it a repaint of Knock Out like Japan or I'll rip your faces off. :-x

Edit: Now that I look at him again, he does resemble Knock Out rather closely (aside from a completely different head mold and the wings, which are on the other side of his wheels :D), more the toy than the animation model. :roll: As long as they don't completely screw it up, I'm fine with a retool.

Oh look... a Knockout repaint with a starscream head and a 1 dimensional personality. Because what the series really needed was a character to jump around shooting lasers yelling 'WOOO!'

Now that I got that out of my system, I hope he ends up being a great new character.

I don"t know.... he looks a little too much like Starscream for me. I will hold my comments for the end of season 2.

Oh don't worry, you're not! My coworker in the office next to me came over to see what was so funny! I was cracking up!

Oh ya!! I'm so glad smokescreen is in prime. He hasn't been in the shows since the unicron trilogy. I love his personality too.

So this is why Takara made a toy for him. I hope he get's released in America as well.

Because it's rock, not dirt. Basically a rock shelf.

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.

If this show plays its cards right, I just might have a new favorite Autobot. :D
