Trivia

The character Nitro Convoy (called Override in the English version) was originally envisioned as a female, and showcases several corresponding characteristics, however in the finished series, "she" was given a male voice. The English dub turned the character into a female again. See more »

Goofs

Although the Mini-Cons of the planet Gigalonia (Gigantion in the English dub) are normal, about human-sized robots, they suddenly become gigantic when they combine with their giant Transformer partners. This is because their animation models have been based directly on their toys, however when separated, their partners are shown to be gigantic, whereas the Mini-Cons themselves are of the same size as any other Mini-Con.

Quotes

Overide: [after the race between herself and Megatron is finished] Let's see who won.
[the camera over the finish line reveals that Override has won by a nose]
Overide: I won! As for that cyber planet key thing I don't know what you're talking about. I just wanted someone to race.
Megatron: I can tell you all about it.

Great series
16 June 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I must admit that I was a bit surprised to find only one comment here...and a misleading one at that, too. First of all, yes, there's some retread of the original saga, but it's been that way for most of the newer series. (Continuity was essentially reset in Car Robots [ Robots in Disguise ], Micron Legend [ Armada ] and now once more...Energon was the exception.) But there are new developments - unlike the previous series, the Galaxy Force Cybertrons [ Autobots ] do their darnedest to hide their presence instead of just walking out of the bushes and announcing that they're here to stay. The idea of giant alien robots is actually treated as being difficult to swallow, and only a few humans (mostly the kids who hang out with the Cybertrons) are aware that there's anything going on. This is made even more impressive when you consider that there are far more Transformers on Earth than in any previous series, having evacuated their home planet and disguised themselves as Terran machines. Very nice. Then, there's the kids, who are not half as annoying as I thought they would be. They stay out of the way for the most part, and sometimes they're downright useful.

Galaxy Convoy is a good leader, knowing his own strengths and weaknesses, delegating tasks but ultimately taking care of business himself; it's clear that he's not big on meaningless protocol, but he commands respect. Most of the characters - good and bad - have had their chances to grow. This isn't Beast Wars, but still pretty damn good.

As for the animation, one word: sweet. It takes some getting used to because the cel-shaded CGI is done by a different animation studio than the previous series, but it's all very well done, and the fight scenes successfully convey both power and elegance. (They might want to work on the explosions, but oh well, can't have everything.) All this is framed wonderfully with good music; there's a few recurring themes in the series itself, and the title and end song are both nicely done.

I'll give it an 8/10 (can't beat Beast Wars), and I really do hope that they won't screw it up in the translation.
