Usual Transformers brilliance
3 February 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This one has a usual Megatron looking for a power source story but in doing so he discovers a lot more than an energy source! Introducing a new character named Skyfire, oddly the toy was called Jetfire, whom Megatron unearths, gives a delicious look into the Transformers past,to a time when there no factions between robots and Starscream was friends with Skyfire. Without giving too much of the story away, this is a good story of just how different Autobots are from Decepticons. It's a definite highlight in season one. Continued nicely in Fire On The Mountain. Skyfire is a nice addition to the usually road bound Autobot factions
