The Decepticon troopers were originally referred to as Eradicons in promotional material. However later the show's creators re-branded them as Vehicons. "Vehicon" is actually not a new term: the enemy drones from Beast Machines: Transformers (1999) were the first bearers of the name. Another similarity, besides the name, is that the new troopers also come in a variety of forms, such as ground-based and flying vehicles. But they are different in that the new Vehicons are individuals, rather than mindless drones lead by a small group of living Vehicon generals. See more »
Since the show often recycled their CGI assets, this meant that the jet flown by Agent Fowler has all sorts of robot-bits on it because it used the same animation model as Dreadwing's and Skyquake's jet forms. See more »
Syndicated versions of the series, as well as foreign dubbed versions, cut some of the more graphic imagery and a few bits of dialog. This mostly involved the pilot episode and the series finale, both of which featured graphic Transformer deaths. The edits are rather crude and cause some continuity issues. See more »
Very good, one of the better Transformers shows since Transformers(1984)
Transformers(1984) is still the best of the Transformers shows, but Transformers: Prime even with its faults is one of the better shows in the franchise since then. Bumblebee does have a rather bland personality this time round, Mikko is annoying(the only character in the show who is) and there is some occasional clunkiness in the dialogue for the human characters(though not as goofy in nature as the worst of the live action trilogy films). The animation however is beautifully rendered, it is smooth with beautiful dark colours and shading and the robots look just great. The music is hauntingly moody, and does help in bringing tension when called for, the action sequences especially are very well scored. The dialogue on the most part is meaningful and intelligent which more than makes up for the occasional clunkiness, while the stories are involving, rich in atmosphere and clearly structured, nothing formulaic or dull at all. The action sequences are well-choreographed, intense and compelling, and the show does a good job in maintaining a balance between story and action without one over-shadowing the other. The characters are well developed- especially so later on- and have distinct and mostly likable personalities, Optimus and Megatron are the most memorable but brownie points also for Knockout, who's very funny, and Jack, the most identifiable of the human characters. And of course the voice acting is superb from all, Jeffrey Coombs, Kevin Michael Richardson, Daran Noris and Steve Blum are very dynamic and Peter Cullen and Frank Welker are without equal as Optimus and Megatron. All in all, a very good show if not as great as Transformers(1984), which is and probably always will be the pinnacle of the franchise. 8/10 Bethany Cox
