True, but it is a sci-fi toy based cartoon. Just sounds like future plot devices to me, especially with Megatron having possession of a few of their bodies.

How so?

But those guys already exist in this continuity as separate characters. And the clones were all killed.

He is a deliciously wonderful character. And Steve Blum's acting provides the icing on the cake. 8)

They were, yes.

Wait, why are we talking in spoiler tags if the episode's already aired? :???:

Hm. I'm not convinced.
It is a shame that the cloning plot would only be used this once, and never picked up on again, but as Sabrblade pointed out in the other thread, the Seekers already exist in this continuity.


EDIT: The spoilers are because people like me (non HUB viewers) may not have yet had a chance to see it. At least that's why I'm using them!

He angrily and brutally beat one of the Starscream clones to death and then dragged his limp body out of the hallway off screen ala Pulp Fiction style. Perhaps rightfully so, but it's one of those things you just don't see Autobots do. Sure they shoot Decepticons, but it's never done in the style that it was done in this episode.

Spider-Man and his Uncle Ben Parker would be disappointed.

That's assuming that continuity is followed strictly or that some other continuity plot hole isn't exploited in order for Hasbro to have easy repaint opportunities. Transformers has a very poor track record of adhering to a very strict continuity.

And to someone like me, Hasbro can say all they want about WFC and FOC being the beginning of the Prime continuity before Earth, but as far as I'm concerned as a fan that's G1 and not Prime. I'm sure there are many other fans that find that easier to accept than to accept that WFC/FOC are the same continuity as TFP.

Yeah, I too didn't like that. But, ever since the live action movies, Autobots unfortunately now have permission to be pushed over the edge to become ruthless and murderous nowadays. :-(

Like you, I myself also prefer the Autobots to stay righteous and differentiated from their enemies' actions by not crossing the line between good and evil. But, sadly the Bay films have now changed all that. :|

Well, the show's creators did say that they want to focus more on Starscream as a unique individual without having to bring in others like him (i.e. - Skywarp and Thundercracker).

I can't quite recall from memory where exactly they said this, but I'm sure it was either at a Con panel or in an online Q&A. If I can find it eventually (maybe tomorrow, since I'm working late this evening), I'll let you know. :)

By any chance, have you read the novels yet? They provide some very strong support to the notion that the two are connected, as they're the fictional medium that is the most derived from the Binder. ;)

Plus, FOC will have more elements from Prime put into it to help further connect the two. Like, the Nemesis itself will look exactly like the one seen in this show, rather than the one from G1.

Just because it's there doesn't mean they can watch it!
My Uni wireless does not allow for YouTube to load, due to bandwidth issues, for example.

Well, he was a Wrecker who have already been established as being like Decepticons in the Tactics they use, plus in the first episode he ripps out the guts of a Vehicon so it's not the first time we've seen him do this kind of stuff.

I liked this episode, plus I finally found an uploaded on youtube who puts up the stuff in HD, actual HD not pixelated low quality crap with a HD logo on it unlike some. Man I had forgotten how pretty this show is. I hope we'll get it on BlueRay over here.

Great episode, but i wonder why starscream is able to feel the same pain as the clones.
At least Animated Starscream didn't have this problem with his clones.

His clones are linked to him via Binary Bonding.

Well that's odd for a cloning process in this canon universe.... considering animated starscream had protoforms as well and suffered no apparent consequences.

Different universe. Different multiverse, even.
