Prime as a fire engine!!! That's the toy I want! The toy that the voyager was supposed to me. The toy that it just wasn't :(

Looks like that human Victory character was just a cameo in Burger Bot (twice)

Otherwise, pretty Matrix-y.... We'll see how it all ends.

I loved the G1 reference there, where did primes trailer go? :D

Awesome episode. The only thing though, why did Sumdac buy a soundwave figure? That seemed out of character.

And soundwave with laserbeak guitar. Awesomesauce.

It was funny when bumblebee smacked blitzwings head around too. :)

Oh, and don't forget the Independance day reference there too Jay.

Headmasters actually. Those two kids were Wilder (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Wilder) and Cancer (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Cancer), two members of the Decepticon Headmaster Juniors. Also interesting was the human form of Optimus Prime, which bears an uncanny resemblance to his voice actor David Kaye (http://www.davidkaye.com/). Bumblebee was coloured as an African-American looking character as his voice actor Bumper Robinson is an African-American - but otherwise bears no noticeable resemblance to him... understandably they made him a kid to represent his relative smallness to the other Autobots in human form (and also relative mental maturity :p). Prowl's human form is obviously based on his holographic rider.

It was like Transformers meets The Matrix - only with Soundwave as the Architect instead of Colonel Sanders. :p An enjoyable episode and I look forward to seeing part 2. :)

Another great episode! I liked the part when Prime says 'Alright Automen, Transf...Roll ou...Oh let's just go.' :p

Nice to see Ratbat snuck in there at the end too. And Bumblebee is meant to be black? Couldn't tell from his voice like with Jazz. Prowl was awesome too! Bring on part 2 says I!

Looks more like Hydra to me, pink glasses, purple hair & neck tie.

I think I'm the only one to notice that, along with Cancer and Wilder, there was Marty Isenberg.

Awesome episode. I want to see the next one to see how the Decepticon Autobots turn out. Maybe it'll homage a bunch of cross-factional repaints? I can see Optimus as Scourge (Robots in Disguise version, obviously), and Bumblebee as Bug Bite, but the rest, not so much. Prowl becomes Cy-Kill?

Sari's eyes are way too big for her new body. She looks scary!

The Autobots give the Botcon-goers some more cosplay ideas. I'm tempted to wear a "Bulkhead" gridiron shirt.

Great to see the Decepticons attacking in force (despite the questionable reality of it).

You're right. Also, those characters are from Masterforce, not Headmasters. I was typing in a hurry this morning cos I was on my way to the Sydney Fan Meet! :p

Good going! I was wondering who that was. :)

And Bumblebee is meant to be black? Couldn't tell from his voice like with Jazz.
Ummm... ooooookkkaaaaayyy... <coughs> (>_>) (<_<)

Fyi, Bumper Robinson (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Bumper_Robinson) also plays Porter C. Powell, Blackout and Blitzwing. Jazz is played by Phil LaMarr (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_LaMarr) who also plays Oil Slick, Omega Supreme and Jetstorm.

My highlight of the whole show was hearing bumblebee and bulkhead make the transformation noises with their voices.
I almost squealed like a little kid, it brought back a few childhood memories....and some not so long ago memories:p

There's also Spike again and a grown up Daniel in the bus. LAst we saw their cameo... Daniel was still in Carly's womb.:D Ooooh Ratbat is shown in the toons as well. darn Id have to buy a whole new soundwave just for that accessory? sigh, hope the ebay sellers sell more newer toys accessory.

Starscream's transformation sequence scenes is sooo Sailor moon hahahahaha.

Daniel was about the same age as Sari (I guess he's had a growth spurt*). The baby that Carly was carrying is Jennifer Witwicky (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Jennifer_Witwicky).



*Of course, being in Soundwave's "Matrix Reality" pretty much throws out any laws of reality or continuity with the 'real' world.

It was an ok story and the humor was mostly decently executed without being ilogical and abrupt. Nothing special but still a pretty decent episode. Although I had already worked out that they were in some simulated world due to all the crazy stuff that was happening which made no sense at all- I am sure kids would have worked this out as soon as I did as it was pretty clear as soon as Starscream appeared.

I am looking forward to the second part.

Nice episode, and good to see the Decepticons again, although I am a little saddened that the only way we get Blitzwing lines is in a dream /vr sequence.

Bring on part 2, should be interesting to see what Sari does.

I think we can interpret the unrealistic numbers of Decepticons showing up as Soundwave trying to get revenge on the Autobots for his defeat. Only, he went a little bit overboard.

Soundwave learn't about the decepticons since we last saw him..but I can easily see that happening with someone who can presumably intercept transmissions.

...and if he can read minds like G1 Soundwave. Not to mention that he would've been hacking the Autobots minds so he would've garnered a lot of information from them. ;)

I think he was trying to provoke them to anger in order to convert them to Decepticons - much like eliciting a Jedi to turn to the Dark Side of the Force.
