Transformers Animated - "Total Meltdown" Episode 5 Recap

TotalMeltdown5

 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

DarkestHour3

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

Renegeration2

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 […]

Transformers Prime - "Patch" Episode 50 Recap

Patch1

Megatron digs deep into Starscream’s mind to evaluate his true loyalties. Clip shows are hard to write for. What is one, other than a glorified thirty minute recap? Somehow, Transformer Prime’s second season slapped in two of them, one of which is completely abysmal. While “Grill” resolved the fake Optimus issue from a previous episode, […]

Transformers Prime - "Inside Job" Episode 49 Recap

InsideJob2

Stuck onboard the Nemesis, Smokescreen attempts to retrieve the Omega Keys from the Decepticons. Ever the naive kid, Smokescreen spent the better part of last episode’s “Hard Knocks” boosting his own ego. He thinks he is destined for greater things because he’s part of Optimus’ crew and had openly declared how special he is. As […]

Transformers Prime - "Hard Knocks" Episode 48 Recap

HardKnocks5

The Autobots race for the remaining Omega Keys. In the end, they discover something unexpected. For the life of me, I will forever be confused by the official plot summary given to “Hard Knocks” because it makes it sound like Knock Out and Starscream would have more screen time than what they actually got. Knock […]

NYCC 2012: Hasbro's "Transformers" Panel Report

TransformersAutobotThumb

Thursday was the least crowded day at New York Comic Con, but fans still filled the room for Hasbro’s afternoon panel for the Transformers brand. From Hasbro Studios in Burbank, CA, Transformers Prime producers Jeff Kline and Duane Capizzi were in attendance, as well as Executive Director Brian Lenard and Vice President of Development Mike Vogel. […]

Transformers Prime - "Alpha/Omega" Episode 47 Recap

AlphaOmega3

The Autobots must find the four Omega Keys to restore Cybertron, but Megatron interrupts, now possessing the power of the Primes. Last episode had Optimus receiving a message from one of the Thirteen, Alpha Trion. He tells Optimus to find the four Omega Keys located in four different directions. Immediately my first thought was, “Didn’t […]

Review: "Transformers: Rescue Bots: Roll to the Rescue" While You Guys Were Fighting Unicron ...

Rescuebots4

Transformers is the story of violent giant robots that destroyed their own planet with a stupid and pointless war, then brought their battle to Earth and seem always on the verge of destroying that planet, too. Characters are locked in constant conflict. They suffer, and they die. Because the characters are robots, such things have […]

Transformers Prime - "Legacy" Episode 46 Recap

Legacy3

Jack teams up with Smokescreen to teach him how to be discreet. Meanwhile, Megatron discovers the powerful Star Saber.   I’ve never had any longstanding issues with Jack; he’s smart, resourceful, and mature for his age. They’re admirable traits that are only hampered by how bland he can be. Thankfully, the show doesn’t ignore his […]
