Trivia

When Fox Kids first put out an early description for the show as a part of its sneak-peek at 1999's fall programming, it featured a wholely different take on the basic cartoon outline, as well as some unfinished character designs. The description promised a story-telling very similar to that of its prequel, Beast Wars: Transformers (1996), with the two opposing factions being the Maximals and Predacons. The completed show differed quite a bit from this: for one, the Maximals faced off against Vehicons, and the ever-present humor of its predecessor was almost completely absent. 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: [Blackarachnia puts her hand on Jetstorm's face] You're free to join us now. We can be together again, Silverbolt.
Nightscream: Why is she so hung up on getting her old boyfriend's spark out of that guy?
Rattrap: [sighing] You're young. You'll learn.

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.
