As much of the same cast has worked on the fan-favorite Transformers show Transformers: Animated (2007), including art director and big-time Transformers nut Derrick Wyatt, this cartoon contains a number of hidden references or "easter-eggs" to that series. For example in one of the episodes, Grimlock's sword and Lockdown's hook-hand appear in Khyber's trophy-room. One of the villain henchmen from the series pilot was meanwhile based on a character from Challenge of the GoBots (1984). See more »
I never was fond of the concepts introduced in B10:AF and B10:UA - they felt forced, irresponsible, and non-related to the general concept of developing as a person, let alone a show. As a person with training in reviews, please *do* heed my words. The concepts behind the Ben 10 franchise is beautiful and ambitious, but the latter of the series have been more forced in my blunt opinion. B10: Omv has cleaned up ideas what were tossed around and incomplete. With the two main sidekicks to the show, i do respect their characters; however, their places in the show were short of perfection. Between the lines of the episodes, cousin Gwen really only threw around and would get hit with almost every other shot. I am not bashing the show - no show is perfect! I do struggle with Man of Action though - they are some of the brightest men i have ever witnessed, but they have a hard time keeping ideas clean-cut and efficient. For ex, they would introduce characters and concepts just for a single episode and disregard it for the rest of the show.
Omniverse features a teenage American who acts as a teenager would - i personally love this adaption of the character over the last two. Thoughts are clear and elegant, plus numerous humor is coated throughout the show. By setting aside Kevin and Gwen, the show allows itself to re-focus on the main character and allow him to actually have a show. Rook Blonko is a beautiful character with a genuine heart and a lot of life ahead. Each episode itself does one thing or another, they don't mash together six different ideals or concepts in the twenty-four minute time span.
I feel really bad right now; my mind is flustered and i have a hard time figuring out how i want to talk about this show. Plus, i've got 300 pages of AP Biology to memorize in the next month. Please do me (and yourself) a favor though - allow yourself to breath and allow the opportunity of change into your heart! Wyatt is a creative and brilliant mind with a team that is highly underestimated due to the animation style. The show has really developed and I recommend it to the children i work with as well as my classmates studying the art of reviews.
