Transformers Animated - "Headmaster" Episode 13 Recap

by Neo Yion March 29, 2013
The Headmaster unit has stolen Bulkhead’s body and is raining havoc on Detroit. Now only a head, Bulkhead must get his body back before things really get messy! Nothing grabs the ire of many like an Aesop episode. It’s stamped on a number of all-age series and remains a constant bane to viewers because we […]

Transformers Animated - "Survival of the Fittest" Episode 12 Recap

by Neo Yion March 14, 2013
Someone has kidnapped Sari and it’s up to Prowl and Bulkhead to save her. Following in their trail is a suspicious Fanzone. I’ve constantly emphasized the importance of memorable personalities and good character development as the driving backbone of a story. This is what personally keeps me invested regardless of the plot’s quality. Thinking largely […]

Transformers Animated - "Lost and Found" Episode 11 Recap

by Neo Yion March 6, 2013
The return of the Decepticons is enough to send the Autobots in a panicked frenzy as they prepare themselves for their biggest fight yet! One criticism coming from Transformers Animated detractors is the lack of Decepticons throughout season one. Not since episode three has there been one onscreen except for Megatron, who is handicapped and […]

Megatron offers to help Isaac Sumdac build a robot for his daughter’s birthday. Unbeknownst to Sumdac, it is a secret ploy for Megatron to gain a new body and defeat the Autobots.

Transformers Animated - "Along Came a Spider" Episode 9 Recap

by Neo Yion February 15, 2013
Optimus Prime is reunited with an old friend who vows revenge for a past incident. The idea of Optimus Prime as an inexperienced young Bot hit sour notes with a few Transformers fans expecting the older, wiser father figure. I personally think this was a bold switch. Think of it as a “what if” take […]

Transformers Animated - "Nanosec" Episode 8 Recap

by Neo Yion February 5, 2013
Bumblebee gets more than he can chew when he gains turbo boosters to enhance his speed. After the heavy-handed and serious nature of the previous episode, “Nanosec” returns to a simpler and lighter format. Is it any surprise it stars Bumblebee? Always the little speed demon, Bumblebee is ecstatic when Sari brings her father’s prototype […]

Transformers Animated - "Thrill of the Hunt" Episode 7 Recap

by Neo Yion January 9, 2013
Ratchet’s past catches up to him when he confronts an old foe from his war days. One of the biggest age-old stigmas associated with kid’s shows is perceived childishness; Transformers Animated endures that ill-remarked moniker to this day. There certainly are a number of series that condescend to children’s intelligence, but an edgier product isn’t […]

Transformers Animated - "Blast From the Past" Episode 6 Recap

by Neo Yion December 4, 2012
Bulkhead tries to be more graceful when he wrecks everything in his path. Meanwhile, Megatron reveals himself to Sumdac and tricks him into creating the Dinobots. Bulkhead is pretty far down my list of favorite characters ever. The Big Guy trope doesn’t do it for me; it usually revolves around how simpleminded and idiotic such […]

Transformers Animated - "Total Meltdown" Episode 5 Recap

by Neo Yion November 26, 2012
 Bumblebee feels inferior when his teammates endlessly tease him. Can he prove his worth with the arrival of new villain, Meltdown? Remember when I mentioned how pathetic the human villains are in the last recap? Scratch that, Meltdown is an exception. Prometheus Black can be best defined as Isaac Sumdac’s opposite. The biggest distinction is […]

by Neo Yion August 23, 2012
Prowl is the odd bot out as he suffers through Bumblebee’s rambunctious personality. How do you solve a problem like Prowl? Specifically starting off as a selfish loner, Prowl admitted the vital necessity of teamwork and accepted his surrounding crew. Introverts need time to come out of their shell though, and the entirety of “Home […]
