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:

Image

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 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.
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

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

nice!! i have been looking forward to a new ABot to hit the screen.
should keep things interesting, hopefully his toy will be available in the US and
not an exclusive ala Breakdown or Unicron.

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.

Also, I don't know why he doesn't look like Knock Out to anyone. He sure as hell looks like Knock Out's toy aside from the door-wings and arms (which I explained how they could re-engineer that here) to me.

I certainly see it, especially in the chest, how it's segmented into the middle part, which sits underneath and forms the main bulk of the torso, and the the two upper-chest panels which fold down on the side. Very reminiscent of the KO deluxe.

It's just like Shockwave. He was going to look like his WFC design (which I still think it's part of G1, not Prime), but then looked like he has elements from the G1 and movie designs. And another example in the past was G1 Megatron, as he looked younger (younger looking face, handheld fusion cannon, helmet is black and looks like hair). Take a look from the Marvel Comics version:

And a comparison at the Sumbow version:

I know everyone keeps talking about how Smokescreen will most likely be a Knockout remold/repaint. I really hope that's not true. For me, a majority of the excitement about a new character is for a completely new toy. As I only collect bots and cons that actually appear in the show, I will be very disappointed if Smokescreen turns out to be a remold! :-(
