This one was a good one. Probably the best episode of season 3 we seen thus far.

This was a great episode. Prowl is my favorite Autobot on the show.

Loved the eye candy with the other "ninja bots".

Does Yokitron's look make anyone really want to see Bludgeon make his triumphant return to the current Transformers mythos?

Nice to have George Takei be part of the Transformers voice actor family now.

It's too bad that this is Yoketron's only appearance. He was cool character.

Also, his name is a reference to Hideaki Yoke. Cool.

Also, all the head busts have been identified. The ones that were visible were:

Springer
Sky Garry
Devcon
Yoketron
Dai Atlas
Jazz
Heavy Load
Star Upper
Roadhandler

Derrick Wyatt revealed that there are others who were not visible, which include:

Ultra Magnus
Star Saber
Tap-Out
Kick-Off
Grandus
Motorarm
Powerhug
Road Rocket

YES, please! But, only if we get a figure, too!

I kind of thought an episode like this would have been better during season 1 or 2. Perhaps replacing one of the worse, or less necessary episodes that plagued those seasons. This was a cool episode that I enjoyed (so far, season 3 hasn't been too bad), but I would rather have seen more on Cybertron.

I agree with Nekoman. It seems to me that one of the 'lessons' Prowl learned in this episode is that it's NOT about the modifications. Ummm, didn't he already learn that in Season Two when he collaborated (briefly) with Lockdown? Seems odd he'd be so dumb he learned the lesson once and then forgot about it, had to learn it again via Lockdown, but no recognition that, 'd'oh! I already knew this!' Good episode, but it would have fit better earlier.

I hate to be crabby about this (but hey, why stop now?), but can I just say that I personally am getting pretty doggone tired of this whole Eastern Martial Arts Mysticism fascination? Oh, ninja bots. Secret mystical powers. Yawn. Yeah, I've been hearing THAT since Sonny Chiba (before most of y'all were born).

Not that I've got anything wrong with ninjas, samurai and the like, but I would like to suggest that the West has a *similarly* amazing martial arts tradition. Hello? Anyone? Sure it looks easy in the movies to sling a plastic or wooden bastard sword, but it real life, it took a lot of technique. And don't even get me started on the horse-back training. It sure would be nice for my boys (the crusaders, the Templars, etc) to get a little martial arts love.

Thanks for that info, that was exactly what I was trying to work out.

Brilliant episode.
