Trivia

Hasbro has approached the story-editors with the notion of continuing the series beyond 26 episodes, but they turned them down, reasoning that they had always planned the series to go on for that many episodes. See more »

Goofs

In numerous episodes, lights, laser bolts, explosions, smoke and fire behave like solid objects. In some cases, light rays even cast a shadow which would of course be impossible. See more »

Quotes

Black Arachnia: Yeah! Isn't this cozy? Now we can all deactivate together.
Optimus Primal: No one is deactivating on my watch!
Black Arachnia: Impressive rebuttal, primate. But unless I miss my guess, you three can't transform out of beast mode anymore than I can. I give us three cycles before we all go offline, for good.

simply put: good show
2 October 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing pictures, and thinking, "eww." Quite literally, "eww." But watching everything in action was a sight. I loved the show's animation style. It somehow reminds me of traditional cel-style, and after watching two episodes (sadly I missed the first) and reading the official site FAQ concerning the transformations and the concepts for the show, I think it will make a fine addition to the Transformers series.
