Trivia

According to the backstory, the Decepticon's ship is actually the giant dinosaur-like robot Trypticon locked into the form of a ship. This was meant to be given a reference in the show, but the writers forgot to include it. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Alternate Versions

The Japanese dubbing turned the originally solemn and serious series into a more jovial children's cartoon show. Some of the characters were given funny-sounding voices and a lot of comical chatter was added to the dialog. A few characters were re-imagined completely - for example, Airachnid turned from a vengeance-fueled sadist into an over-the-top love-obsessed stalker of teenage boys. The moody orchestral theme-tune was also replaced with an upbeat pop song. Further, season 3 in its entirety was ignored by the Japanese dub, and the big cliffhanger from the second season finale was also removed. Instead, an entirely new mini-series titled was created to replace season 3. The reason for all these changes is that in Japan, the Transformers franchise is regarded strictly as children's property, and the serious tone of the cartoon's original American version clashed greatly with this perception.

Absolutely amazing series !!
26 August 2012 | by ShameekSee all my reviews

Quite admittedly I had never been a Transformers fan until recently. I often tried the original series when I was a kid but I always found it too childish, even as a kid. I preferred G I JOE. The concept of transformers always interested me but I never actually found a cartoon that did justice to the franchise. The movies rekindled my interest but they were far from great. Too much emphasis was given to the human characters to go with other problems. In Transformers: Prime I have finally found something that I had always wished Transformers to be.

The basic mood of this series perfectly suits Transformers. It's serious but has enough humor. It has a dark feel to it which seems to be a missing ingredient of all previous Transformers series.

The picture quality is amazing. The robots look fantastic and the humans look fairly good too. The background quality does vary a bit from episode to episode but even the minimum level is very good. The camera work is excellent.

The writing is generally very good as well although there are times when it feels a little stretched out. The dialog is impressive.

The musical score is excellent and that really helps the mood and tension of any scene. Transformers is meant to be epic. That is exactly what the music reflects. At times the power of the music is such that if you get involved enough it will take you places.

But the true strength of this series is the characters. Every single character has incredible depth and development, and you can really feel that every character is unique. The bad guys are always more interesting but here you'll also come to love the good guys because you'll feel that you really know them and get to ride along in their emotional journey. The writers did not throw cheap characters by the hundreds but instead carefully chose a few and decided to make them complete.

I would go as far as to say that the quality of the show is wasted on young viewers who would probably struggle to realize just how good it is, but enjoy it all the same. This is art, not just entertainment for kids.

If you will ever love Transformers then this is it. Even if you never liked it before give it a try. You might just fall in love with it.
