The Optimus Prime of this series quickly gained the nickname "Fattimus Prime" from the fans, since when he transformed into robot-mode, the massive truck cab of his vehicle-mode formed his torso, yet his limbs looked very thin and frail in comparison. His huge "belly" was actually in proportion to his Super-mode (a bigger form in which he combines with smaller vehicle drones), but looked awkward on his standard robot form. See more »
English version: All throughout the series, it is never explained why Megatron, who has formerly died as Galvatron, goes back to calling himself by his original name after he is resurrected. This is actually because in the original Japanese version, he never renamed himself to Galvatron. 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.
