Storyline

The great war has ended. Unicron has been defeated, the Decepticons have fled and the Autobots are victorious under the command of a new leader. In the midst of the celebrations, the Autobots are suddenly attacked, leaving the Decepticons the obvious suspects. But the Decepticons are in bad shape, low in energy, without a leader and fighting amongst themselves.

"I will not be defeated by a garbage scow!"
29 October 2016 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Entertaining follow-up to Transformers: The Movie and the opening five episodes of the third season of the Transformers TV series. It continues from where the movie left off, with Rodmius Prime now leading the Autobots. It also reunites Galvatron with the struggling Decepticons and focuses a lot on the Quintesson characters from the movie, giving their backstory and connecting them to the origin of the Transformers. It sets up some interesting stories for the rest of the third season, which doesn't always get the respect it should as it was a pretty well-written season. The biggest complaints I have about this (as well as the third season overall) are that the animation isn't the greatest and some of the better voices from the movie (like Leonard Nimoy, Robert Stack, and Judd Nelson) are different here. But still, if you enjoy the Transformers and weren't put off by the movie like some fans were at the time, you should enjoy this and the season that followed.
