Jetfire's design is inspired by the Galaxy Shuttle from Transformers: Victory (1989), and his alternate mode is based on the X-71 military shuttle from the Michael BayArmageddon (1998). Bay would adapt Transformers into a live-action film series. See more »

I can tell you this. Whoever did this to Hot Shot wasn't a particularly skilled marksman.
What? Are you sure?
Positive. He was shot at point blank range.

Being an "old school" Transfan (having watched the G1 series when it aired Sunday mornings), I viewed Armada with anticipation, and also a little trepidation. Let's face it, the years have not been kind to the Transformers. Whether it's the toys (remember G2 toys... sneeze and they shatter?) or the cartoons (Robots in disguise... ick), Transfans as of late have been getting the short end of the stick.
All that has changed.
Armada is a very good successor to the original series of Transformers. Optimus Prime behaves more like Optimus (and he's a semi-rig again!), Megatron is terrifying again, and Starscream is a toadying sycophant again. Admittedly, the minicons and the kids on the show are a minor turnoff, but unfortunately, that's the style of anime today. No kids, no cartoon, unfortunately. Thankfully, Armada handles the situation -much- better than Robots in Disguise, where the children (and, sadly, the Transformers themselves) are more annoying than a microfly in your transistor housing.
No, it isn't perfect. But it IS good. The animation beats out any of the 3D Beast-fill-in-the-blank cartoons (3D animation is still in its infancy, and currently is vastly overrated), and assuredly Robots in Disguise. With this on the air, I can once again look forward to quality Transformers programming.
