Trivia

Many Transformers in this show take their names from the G1 transformers: Red Alert, Starscream, and Cyclonus. Hot Shot may be a new name for Hot Rod; Sureshock may be new name for Sureshot (Targetmaster) (episode 1.02 "First Encounter Part 2: Metamorphasis"). See more »

Goofs

In the early episodes, Hot Shot is sometimes called Hot Rod. Later when Tidal Wave appears he is sometimes called Shockwave. Mixing up the character's English and Japanaese names was actually a fairly common mistake. At one point, a character refers to Optimus by his Japanase name, Convoy. See more »

Quotes

Hot Shot: Hey! Where are you taking me? Let go of me.
Scavenger: I want you to hit me.
Hot Shot: Why?
Scavenger: Just do it.
Hot Shot: No!
Scavenger: Come on, Hot Shot. I want you to take some shots at me. Do you know why I left the Decepticons?
Hot Shot: No.
Scavenger: Because of the way you stand up for your friends. You stood up for Sideways even though he was deceiving you and I admired you for that. Now hit me!
Hot Shot: No! Just leave me alone. Optimus is gone and there's nothing anyone can do about it.
Alexis: I understand now. He feels badly because he treated Optimus badly just before ...

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.
