It's from Adventures in Bumblebee-Sitting!. He turns into it to remove Quillfire's poison spike.

I can empathize with Bumblebee. Hamburgers really are gross. [-(

You might know by now that, though the US is currently airing the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series on Cartoon Network, Australia and Singapore had the first 14 episodes shown quite a while in advance. It now appears that France might be catching up, according to the schedule on Programme-tv.com: June 3rd will see the airing of episodes 13 and 14 on Canal J, plus the new episode 15! It is likely that the show will air in its dubbed version, but great news for Francophone fans nonetheless.

Okay, I know I'm really late, but I had no idea "Out of Focus" was around until a week ago and couldn't be bothered to watch it until this morning. I will say that the episode was a great one, showing the parallels of Optimus and Bumblebee's conflicts of focus and moving past them. Though, I would've liked for the episode to have started with Optimus' plot rather than Bumblebee's, as it just sort of shows up in the middle of the prologue without much segue. Unless I missed something, I mean, the episode did start rather abruptly in the Dailymotion link.

Ironically (and sadly), despite having that diner in his scrapyard, Denny wasn't named after the restaurant.

Something writer/producer Adam Beechen regrets.

Nice to see them, but Prime looked wonky! And Bee's design is pretty much identical to his final design, but what the hell is going on with that pose?

Looks like he is stepping to the side like his leg is broken, he might be shaking and twitching, kinda like he's been smoking, when a 'con chump punk points a finger like a stump, he'd tell them to step off, he's doing the hump.

The Transformers: Robots in Disguise line has been bringing together quite a few strands of the Transformers mythos, and the mystery behind new character Megatronus has yet to be cleared. We've heard of the Warrior class toy, we've seen both alt-mode and robot mode in the RID app - and now we have some screen caps featuring a battle between MEgatronus and Optimus Prime (who is also sporting a new body) in an upcoming episode of the show!

Check out the mirrored images below, via the Autobase Aichi Facebook page, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.

Whoa, not bad. Maybe Megatronus came to Earth to avenge his fallen master, and Optimus was chosen to stop him.

This is obviously NOT the real megatron but he could be the prime known as megatronus :-? Or just an imposter of them
