The Mainframe animators initially created animation models for the characters based closely on their toy forms. These included the infamous "mutant masks", along with all the faults the toys had (disproportionate body parts, various excess pieces hanging off their bodies, etc). Later, the designs gradually changed, and by the finalized versions, some of the characters only very faintly resembled their original action figures. Thus, although their transformations are wholly unfeasible in most cases, the characters in the show ended up looking far more clean and workable than the toys would have been. See more »
Megatron's dragon form is not given an explanation. When Optimus Primal combined with the Spark of the original Optimus, he retained his gorilla mode (his all-time beast mode) and acquired two vehicle modes. But when Megatron combines with the Spark of his namesake, he loses his dinosaur form and gains a dragon form, even though he had no dragon DNA to scan. See more »

So many people would call this show "elementry" and stupid, but it's actually quite dramatic. The story that spanned three seasons focuses on two alien races (the Maximals and the Predacons) who crash onto Earth eons before the original Transformers are discovered by the humans. From there on, the Predacon leader Megatron tries to take control and destroy the Maximals.
The growth of the characters over the three seasons is very entertaining, funny and dramatic. Oh, and not to mention that the action and graphics are often amazing.
Good show, definitely my favorite children's action, 8/10.
