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 […]

Transformers Animated – “Sound and Fury” Episode 10 Recap

by Neo Yion March 1, 2013
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. It was only a matter of time before someone took Sari’s misuse of the Allspark Key and turned it against her. Megatron knows […]

by RockmanDashon February 19, 2013
Transformers Fall of Cybertron is the climatic sequel to the 2010 game: Transformers:War for Cybertron developed by High Moon Studios and published by Activision. Both titles allow players to jump into the shoes of their favorite giant robots while crushing the opposing side of forces with various weapons. Those looking for their next shooter may […]

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 […]


Transformers Prime – “Darkest Hour” Episode 52 Recap

by Neo Yion November 5, 2012
Wow, what a rush. I was unsure how season two’s finale would top last season’s. The “One Shall Rise” trilogy brought forth Unicron (essentially the Transformers Devil) and pulled an unexpected plot twist where Optimus loses his memories and joins the Decepticons. That last twist came out of nowhere and drove me into anticipation for […]

Transformers Prime – “Regeneration” Episode 51 Recap

by Neo Yion October 29, 2012
The Autobots engage in an all-out battle with the Decepticons for the Omega Keys. This episode was a chore to sit through. As heart-pounding and unexpected as it was, it’s marred by questionable decisions, convenient twists and plot holes. The biggest issue is Dreadwing’s death. Unable to side with the Autobots yet unwilling to betray […]
