Goofs

Swindle gets ahead of the Autobots, even though this would be impossible, since they were all running down a staircase, where he would have had no chance of getting past them. It is not implied that he used a different route. See more »

Quotes

[Swindle is brought before Megatron. Megatron is furious to hear what Swindle did, because he needs Bruticus for his current scheme]
Swindle: [on his knees, caught in fear] It's... it's not my fault, Megatron! This greed is built into my personality component!
[Starscream and Skywarp roughly grab Swindle and drag him backwards]
Megatron: I want Bruticus reassembled, and I want it now! And as an extra added incentive, Soundwave is installing a bomb in your head.

"Theres Junk All Over This Episode."
16 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having a transformer episode with a few combiners in it, seems like an awesome idea. But this episode is one of the worst of the entire season.

Swindle is ordered to find and reassemble the combaticons after they had been destroyed by Defensor. Meanwhile two boys in a science class are forced to get a blue ribbon in a science fair or else they will get an F in the class. (Yeagh what I said really happens in this episode.) So they build a robot and unknowingly use Brawls personality chip and create a robot that is destructive. Meanwhile meanwhile Megatron plans to knock the moon away so he can use the oceans as a power source. (yeagh that really happens also) This episode is dumb. The humans are building a robot and the science they use seems way to advanced for any students. Also why in the name of god would a teacher threaten to fail students if they did not get a blue ribbon? Defensor is cool, but he barely is in the episode and this I think is his first appearance in a cartoon and he is not showcased enough. Also Bruticus is in it, but he does absolutely nothing other than just stand around like a moron. The action at the end was awful, and it is really disappointing how Bruticus and Defensor do not battle at the end.

One of the worst episodes. Do not watch this one.
