Trivia

Many Transformers fans think of this episode as the worst in the department of story-telling. It has various plot and animation oddities, and the characters are rather unlikable as well. Above that, the villains' plan is so over-complicated, that it hardly makes sense. See more »

Goofs

Instead of spraying CO2 on the burning building, Groove uses liquid nitrogen to put the fire out. In reality, doing so would cause mass explosion and endanger the people caught in the building. See more »

Quotes

[after Swindle sold the parts of the other Combaticons in black markets around the world, he dumps the worthless parts in a junkyard]
City junkyard attendant: What's goin' on?
Swindle: [glares at the attendant] I'm unloading some junk. You got a problem with that?
City junkyard attendant: [stammers in fear] Uh, n-n-no, sir.
[Starscream and Skywarp, who were looking for the Combaticons, notice Swindle in the junkyard]
Starscream: So that's where all the parts are! I think that sleaze is up to something!

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.
