Trivia

The titular B.O.T. stands for "Biotronic Operational Telecommunicator", although the name isn't very fitting, considering the robot character is neither biomechanical, nor does it do communication. See more »

The dumbest episode in transformers history!
2 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story makes no sense, the animation is just horrible, and the showcasing of the protectobots and Defensor is just plain bizarre! The episode is about Swindle who, after a fight with Defensor, tries to sell off the other combaticons' body parts. Why?! At first we see him trying to buy body parts, and we get no explanation as to why he changes his plans. Megatron's plan seems ridiculously complicated to the point where it does not make sense. The kids introduced in this episode are extremely annoying and loathsome. And people complain about the kids in ARMADA.

Don't even get me started on the animation errors! There are too many to list.

Bottom Line. Worst. Episode. Ever.
