An interesting commercial
18 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's hard to rate this, because it's less of a show and more of a showCASE.

Basically, you get to see the characters from Takara's Transformers: Robot Masters line. If you haven't seen the line, there are definitely good points to it. Prime among these (pardon the pun) is G1 Convoy (Optimus Prime for those of you not versed in Japanese Transformers.) Starscream looked really great too.

So, anyway, the thing's like 10 minutes long altogether. Earth's under attack by you know who, your unfriendly neighborhood Decepticon. So G1 Prime has got to fly in and whip the crap out of Beast Wars Megatron. This, in and of itself, is reason enough to watch. Both characters are the same size (rather than the tiny Megs you see in BW) and they proceed to tear up several city blocks. Then while that's going on, Starscream and the Seekers are flying over town, only to meet the one thing every Transformers fanboy has always wanted to see: Optimus Primal, all King-Kong like, hanging from the top of the Empire State Building with guns blazing.

And you don't get just one Prime. You get G1 Primal, Beast Wars Primal, Victory Leo, Star Saber... just a pantload of Prime. And then there's "Reverse Prime," some sort of evil Optimus, who can also change into Megatron tank mode and become "Reverse Megatron." Multiple Megatrons and Primes, all of whom have a showdown in the end, with predictable results.

It's 10 minutes long, so it's all combat and just the thinnest shade of plot.

The animation is out of this world. It's very reminiscent of Beast Wars/Machines, and it's very well rendered. There is eye-candy aplenty. The only thing it's missing are the original character voices. That would've completed the fanboy fantasy, I think.

Best place to find it is at TV-Nihon, where it's fansubbed. It's fun. And a good way to waste 10 minutes.
