Love it or hate
19 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a long time fan of Transformers it was good to see another series release along with a new line of Action Figures. The Transformers Armada Toys came with the mini cons that would unlock new features like new weapons or extra modes.

The show itself however is still a mix for me and I love Transformers but this show is again a mess and hit for me.

Armada is the first in the trilogy known as Transformers The Unicron Trilogy

The story line for Transformers Armada is that the evil Decepticons lead by Megatron are on a quest to collect the new Transformers known as Mini-Cons but it is up to the Autobots lead by Optimus Prime to stop the Decepticons before they can collect the Mini-cons to rule the Universe.

The series feature an interesting story line which is enough to hold your attention.

But what hurts the series is the human kids that the Autobots have for allies and friends are annoying and more or less useless I mean these characters all they do is whine, cry and belly ache. They just serve no meaning to the series as soon as a Decepticon appears they start to run and scream like little rats I mean they are just awful characters.

The Transformers themselves are what save the series because they are at least interesting ones like Starscream who is like an anti- hero in the series.

If there is another good thing that came out of the series was the video game called Transformers which was release in 2004 and it is still a awesome game.

Back to the series it does feature some talented voice actors like David Kaye and Garry Chalk who voiced in Beast Wars returning to the Transformers and it feels great to hear them together again. Also Michael Dobson does a superb job as Starscream as you can actually feel emotion from the performance of Starscream.

The theme song simple be awesome the guitar work in the song is what makes Transformers Armada interesting as well as talented music in the series with some music serving meaning to the plot of the episodes.

Overall Transformers Armada some love it some just have mix emotions about it if you're a fan of Transformers then check it out
