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 […]

Transformers Prime - "The Human Factor" Episode 45 Recap

TheHumanFactor

Merged into Breakdown’s corpse, Silas uses his newfound rejuvenation to join the Decepticons. I’ve always had a problem with Silas’ blandness. He’s just evil for the sake of being evil, while any motivation he might have is nonexistent. Right from the get-go, his team fuses his body with Breakdown’s corpse and the first thing he […]

Transformers Prime - "New Recruit" Episode 44 Recap

NewRecruit

A new Autobot joins the team. Meanwhile, Starscream seeks out the elusive Red Energon. Finally, a new Autobot. This show needed one for the longest time. Filling in as the eager but immature and inexperienced rookie, Smokescreen essentially takes a role I thought Bumblebee was attached to. This is slightly disappointing, as I feel that […]

Transformers Prime - "Out of the Past" Episode 43 Recap

OutofthePast3

Origin stories are usually hit-or-miss with me. Much of what they’re telling are events we already knew about, so further elaboration tends to be repetitive and unnecessary. “Out of the Past” does suffer from this, since it explains how Arcee and Cliffjumper became partners and eventually end up on Earth. It doesn’t advance the overall […]
