Trivia

Garry Chalk usually does not do voiceover work for Japanese animated series, but jumped at the chance to play Optimus Prime when he heard David Kaye was going to be involved See more »

Goofs

Due to the pressure of the American dubbing studio, the animation had to be rushed, and this resulted in numerous animation errors. These include characters growing huge or shrinking to a small size between shots, the absence of lip-movement when someone is talking, and a constant shuffling of color schemes. Sometimes, even the background art was inconsistent. Another animation fault of the early episodes was sliding still pictures over the screen instead of animating the characters fully. See more »

Decent, but not that great.
31 October 2003 | by (Radnor, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Transformers: Armada had all the makings for one of the best versions of Transformers since G1. Unfortunately, Beast Wars still holds that torch (Though BW was still good).

First off, the animation is very clunky and not very good. I've seen episodes of the original Dexter's Laboratory that has better animation! The character designs, for the most part, are way too bulky (specifically Optimus, Megatron, and Starscream) and are not pleasing to the eye.

The plot itself is mind-numbingly stupid. Evidentally a race of miniature robots called Mini-Cons have been re-awakened on Earth, and now the Autobots and Decepticons are fighting for supremecy. Not only are the Mini-Cons crappy in the first place, they do not have any personalities whatsoever! They're just mindless drones except when the plot calls for it.

Even though this is the same cast that has been doing Transformers since Beast Wars, the VAs seem very uncomfortable. The acting is just cheesy and you don't feel for any of the characters, especially HotShot.

Though the upcoming Unicron battles are really quite good, it's just not enough to catapult this series above Beast Wars. Tanaka, the creator of Transformers, seems focused on selling to kiddies instead of making the actual product good. They need to hire a good director (such as the director of G Gundam) to take a new spin on the series.
