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 »

Goofs

The Bruticus scrap pile changes between shots; first it's a few scattered parts on the street, then it's a solid pile of them. 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.

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.
