  1. Well, it made me smile. I just wish it was easier to get certain other TV series as complete DVD/Blu Ray box sets.
  2. I wonder if the Matrix will turn Smokescreen into Optimus Prime II. That may be what the Transformers Prime series is actually about. We get the veteran G1-equivalent of Optimus who in turn gets succeeded by a new younger Prime (perhaps the equivalent of the Transformers Animated one). If Transformers Prime has sequels, the new Prime (if there is one) will have to prove himself as a worthy successor to the old leader (I can already see Grimlock causing problems). I guess it will be quite a while before old Rodimus makes his debut, if ever. Of course, he might already exist somewhere in the Prime-verse.

    Omega Supreme

    I liked the way they combined the iconic Ark and the once- 'Autobot's last line of defense' into a single entity. I was really disappointed when I found out we weren't getting an Animated Omega Supreme.
  4. Hopefully someone will make a version similar in size to the WST Fort Maximus.
  5. I don't think I appreciated these upgrade sets until I came across the TF: Prime Voyager 'weapons' (I'm not really a great fan of 'MechTech'). About the only weapons I like are Megatron's - for all the others, it a case of 'What's that thing stuck to his arm?'. Hopefully, we'll eventually get something for Bulkhead, Starscream, Dreadwing and Skyquake, too. I know there are ways of modding their weapons, but I prefer not to have to, if someone comes up with something better.
  6. Personally I think that to-date, the best Transformers series were Beast Wars and Transformers Animated. I suspect watching those two series somewhat spoiled Transformers Prime for me. Transformers Prime didn't grab me immediately the way BW and T:A did, (admittedly I've only seen around 10 episodes, but the other two series had me hooked from the very first episode) but it does have some things going for it. Optimus Prime is THE Optimus, Megatron is THE Megatron - you can sense the history these two share. Arcee isn't a token female 'bot. She can kick a** when she needs to (or just feels like it). On the other hand Bulkhead, Bumblebee and Ratchet seem to me to be shadows of their Animated counterparts - thats more a compliment to TF:Animated, though. Maybe learning more of their background will help. The interaction between the scheming Starscream and the watchful Soundwave is interesting, the former always annoyed at being in the shadow of Megatron ("Excuse me, can I speak to the manager?"), and the latter always watching out for the interests of his true master (some of the Decepticons come across as pretty loyal, they just happen to be on the wrong side - perhaps signs of a potential faction change). I would say the Decepticons are actually more interesting than Team Prime. Perhaps it's because Optimus is better at keeping his crew in line (Both BW and TF:A Optimuses had to fight for acceptance). What would the Autobots do if Prime was out-of-action? The way I see it, TF:Prime is just getting to the good stuff. It can be a bit slow in parts (particularly the dialogue), but at times it's pretty epic. I'd prefer it if it did not get killed off anytime soon. Things I'd like to see: Dinobots Shockwave (rival Decepticon Leader version - see how Starscream deals with that) Other Decepticon and Autobot leaders (alternate Galvatron, Scorponok, Star Saber, Fort Max, Rodimus, Ultra Magnus?) TF politics should be interesting, especially when you get rival factions. Powermaster Optimus Prime. City Transformers (Trypticon?). Bumblebee talking (the Animated version had some awesome dialogue - maybe in Season 2) Omega Supreme. Scourge and Cyclonus (minions of Unicron?). Jetfire (G1 style). Episodes set on other planets. For a TF series hyped to go beyond previous ones, the current Team Prime seem more-or-less stranded on Earth. (Eventually) Optimus as an Autobot Leader as in, of an army, rather than just a team)
