Due to his forearm-guards, Starscream in this show is in fact incapable of opening his hands, as they are forced into a clenched fist by default. We never see him pick up or put down anything. See more »
English version: In multiple episodes, the fact that Unicron's head has turned into a miniature star and that the dots floating around it are meant to be the "sparks" of Alpha Q's former planets, is left entirely unexplained, even though this is the main point of the entire story. Between the badly translated English dialogue and choppily edited shots of the original Japanese version, it is nearly impossible to tell what is going on in several episodes. See more »
Since the fantastic Beast Wars, and the decent Beast Machines, Transformers fans have not been very lucky. We've gotten Robots in Disguise, which I never really got into, due to lack of interest. Then, came along, Armada. The action was sparse, the jokes were horrible and I couldn't stand the kids they partnered the "Minicons" with. They had Pokemon'D Transformers.
Now, here comes the light at the end of the tunnel. I was skeptical about Energon, since it was a direct sequel to Armada, but when I started watching I was quite relieved. The fighting and explosions are quite fun to watch, and this time its in a new 3D cell shading form, which at times, can feel awkward, but still is a great addition to the show. Plus, while Armada tired me out with its boring storyline, Energon had me hooked.
And finally, my favorite enhancement, the characters. It seems like they really upped personalities in Energon. A perfect example would be Cyclonus, not so much of an interesting character in the predecessor, but here, he's a Quickstrike-like madman.
While this series isn't the best, its still a nice little candy for us Transformers fans, who have suffered for so, so long.
