LoL, Megatron holds oil like a cup of wine, I think an episode of headmasters shows galvatron drinking wine in a glass cup. It was also cool that the constructicons were based on the typical construction worker stereotype the comments on the red car were just priceless.

It was great! I'm gonna wanna get Scrapper before I get Mixmaster.

I really didn't like this episode, it was too much like a "Don't drink and drive" PSA. The Constructicons reminded me of the Goodfeathers from Animaniacs, which I liked. Anybody notice Mix Master had a buttcrack? Is that a new level for Transformers? I don't know, it just didn't do it for me...

Hey, it's been awhile, huh. I kinda like this new transformers show, but I hope they bring more constructicons to form devastor.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-05-18 12:10:50
And I like how we're a million episodes (exagerated) into the series now and the Autobots still don't stand a chance against the Decepticons. And where the heck is the Elite Guard? They haven't left the planet yet, as I recall. Why haven't we seen them in a few weeks, now?
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-05-18 12:13:15
They won't put in more C-Cons. It's only gonna be those two, and they're not gonna combine. This isn't G1, so don't expect Devestator to show up anytime soon.

Also, this was the first episode that I didn't really like. Scrapper and Mixmaster were a little too jerk-like to be Autobots, yet they weren't evil enough to be Decepticons. And the ending was just disappointing and kinda sad. I hope some good comes for the Constructicons.

Plus, did anyone get memories of the old G1 episode "Microbots" whenever the C-Cons were drinking oil?

TripredRavage the elite guard had left the planet some episodes back.
bludgeon589 said,  - 2008-05-18 12:38:24
why do the constructicons look like Mario and luigi?
Tyscream said,  - 2008-05-18 12:59:22
Yea that's what I noticed! They do look like Mario and Luigi!
ilovetransformers said,  - 2008-05-18 13:14:25
lets hope they dont start saying'its mario time'!!!!. TRIPREDRAVAGE,the elite guard did leave in mission accomplised but they sent blurr from cybertron a.k.a the blue racer.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-05-18 13:30:28
I don't remember them leaving at all... Wasn't mission accomplished the episode where they first introduced the Stasis Cuffs?
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-05-18 13:35:09
Yes, they left at the end of that one. Their ship blasted off during the montage at the end.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-05-18 13:37:47
...slag... I liked the Tick... er, I mean, Sentinel Prime...

lord megatron said,  - 2008-05-18 15:07:44
"thats mama Luigi to you mario!" lol, (youtube poop joke).
I thought it was a good episode. I didn't like the fact that they seemed like they were trying to pull a PSA off on us but still, I got to say I like the consructicons! I don't really care for luigi--er,I mean, Scrapper. I guess because anything he says doesn't seem to have much impact on anything. He's just Mixmasters' lackey, thats all. I will however, be buying the figs of those two. can't get enough of that good ol' decepticon butt-crack! lol!
Megatron g1 said,  - 2008-05-18 16:36:18
at 1.00 bumblebee has a desepticon simble
PlasmaEnergyGod said,  - 2008-05-18 17:34:18
Yeah, I caught that too a minute into part 1. But interestingly enough the symbol doesn't look like an animation error, does it? It's shape is too well-defined. It's almost like the animators placed it there as sort of a gag...
Jumpercliff said,  - 2008-05-18 18:08:42
(Laughs hysterically) They really poked fun at the worker stereotype! Not bad, and I presume the Constructicons will get their green in future episodes.
Luketroop said,  - 2008-05-18 18:24:14
Tyscream, I told you they looked like Mario and Luigi! Lugnt must be Wario!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-05-18 20:38:54
That must mean Blitzwing is Waluigi and Megs is Bowser. Don't know who Screamer and BA would be.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-05-18 22:05:42
I wonder who Wigi is? BA=Birdo lol

for more information about the dissapearence of Wigi contact the local humane sociaty and keep children and small animals away from the Wigi at ALL TIMES!
ilovetransformers said,  - 2008-05-18 22:19:57
Birdo would be blackaracknia
ZhaneX said,  - 2008-05-18 23:51:17
My favorite part of this episode was when Lugnut fell back and yelled
'I'm okay!'
And Megatron holding the wine galss for his 'special blend' oil was just too good!
Scorpomike said,  - 2008-05-19 03:04:38
That episode wasn't my favorite but it was good, no human villans.

were sure getting a lot of "rise of's" lately aren't we?
I wonder if thats a trend? Megatron RISING, RISE OF the Constructicons.
bludgeon589 said,  - 2008-05-19 12:13:55
wow, i mention the constructicons look lke mario and luigig, and suddenly people think they noticed it first.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-05-19 14:11:41
Surprising, I'm not too crazy about these new Constructicons, I guess it's just the way they're portrayed. I wanted them to have a little more of a mean streak. I also think the way they're done is a bit too stereotypical, maybe demeaning to blue-collar construction workers... I dunno. This ep was good, but not my favorite.

I hope that the story writers don't over-use the whole allspark fragment brings something to life, every time they want to introduce a new character. So far it's not bad, but could get to be monotonous if over done. Maybe it's just that I want old characters ala Blurr, Omega Supreeme, Constructicons to come to earth via ships or such. An allspark fragment bringing something on Earth to life is a great way to introduce *new* personas. Not so much for oldies, but goodies.

Yes, Megs holding that wine glass to sip his special oil blend was terrific! :)
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-05-19 15:58:03
Well, blurr wasn't brought to life via a Sacred Jewel Sha-- er, I mean, an AllSpark fragment, he's an Elite Guard member.

And Omega Supreme is the Autobot's ship, remember.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-05-19 18:17:08

Dude, I thought this was a thread about Rise of the Constructicons! Thanks for the complete SPOILER on a show I haven't seen yet.

I've had a theory that the "Ark" was Omega Supreme for months. I notice this bit of fore-shadowing in the TFA opening movie sequence when Optimus Prime says, "TeletranOne, activate emergency defense system, code name: Omega." I just about crapped my pant when I put those 2 and 2 together! --> Maybe the ship is Omega Supreme and Optimus was trying to get it to transform and kick that decepticon war ship's butt! I've been dearly hoping that the Autobot's ship is Omega Supreme. Sa-weeeet!

What we, er what *I* still don't know, and what I *don't want to know* until the show airs is whether Omega Supreme is alive and lying in wait, or if the Ark ship is just brought to life by another allspark fragment. Specifically, without blatantly saying so, that is exactly the point I was trying to cryptically make above. Personally, I think it'd be less cool if they just put an allspark fragment into the ship and it just comes to life as Omega Supreme.

I guess it's just the continuity freak in me. I want it to be *the* O.S., not just become O.S... It was cool for Wreck-Gar and Grimlock and the Dino's. For some reason, I didn't want that to be the origin of TFA constructicons. I was hoping for something different. ---> Megatron sends out his message, then the Constructions arrive on Earth, coming to his aide to help him build his space bridge. Anyway, that's my 2 cents on it all.

Okay, so now that that bomb has been dropped, I'm trying to picture how incredibly freaking awesome will be a supreme class toy that looks like the Ark and transforms into Omega Supreme!?!?!?!? Holy crappis. I is possible it could be big and awesome enough to hold figures? Holy smokes, I would love that!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-05-19 18:54:05
It'll be in the same size class as Roll Out Command Prime.

And I thought you knew about Omega since its been known for some time know. Why, there's even a clip from a later episode showing his transformation scene and more. I only saw the first three seconds of it cuz those seconds were spoiler enough for me.

I do not know how he'll come online, but I suspect he'll have a similar role to that of RiD Fortress Maximus when he appears.
Luketroop said,  - 2008-05-19 19:31:56
Telatran 1 is Omega and I think they said it in episode 1 too. He is going to blow up maybe in the last episode of the season.
transformersloversurivie said,  - 2008-05-19 19:33:02
omega is going to be a ultimate size he transforms into the ship that the autobots take to earth in transform and roll out the movie soooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!! he is going to cost around $100 bucks
transformersloversurivie said,  - 2008-05-19 19:35:04
i herd from eather or
Perceptor said,  - 2008-05-19 21:15:07
So, back in the TFA animated movie, the ability to, "activate emergency defense system, code name: Omega" was hindered by the fact that the transaction was prohibited, "in compliance with Cybertron's on-going efforts to conserve energon." I interpret this to mean, it takes too much energon for Omega Supreme to transform.

I'm happy with the idea that the Allspark key or a shard will provide all the power/Energon that's necessary to make this happen. What I don't want is a piece of the Allspark to fall out of someone's hand or out of the casing or whatever, become absorbed by the ship, then all of the sudden Omega Supreme is "born," ready to battle Decepticons. I hope the story reflects the idea that Omega Supreme is alive right now (and has been through the entire series), and only requires the Energon it'll take to facilitate his ability to transform and kick decepticon-arse!
Perceptor said,  - 2008-05-19 21:19:32
anyway, maybe I'm just being too picky. Omega Supreme in this show, with *that* alternate form would kick so much tail pipe!

The constructicons, as oil guzzlin' not real smart, not real powerful types, also lacking the ability to unite... hm, I just was hoping for more here. We'll see. Maybe that will come in time.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-05-21 15:52:49
I just hope something good comes for them in the near future. We can guess they'll obviously become full-fledged Decepticons (otherwise they wouldn't be Constructi"CONS"), but hopefully, they'll regain their memories of the friendship with Bulkhead later on and become good guys toward the end of the series (not this season, the next or whichever one is the last season).

It's like what was said at the end of the episode, "As long as they're not wear Decepticon symbols, there's still hope for them."

40th comment ya
Rhinox said,  - 2008-05-22 11:40:57
I highly doubt they will get toys.
They´d have to be supremes to be in scale with the others,and four supremes in one line isn´t possible for hasbro.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-05-22 15:28:05
They are getting toys. Rumor has it they will be Deluxes.

But this was the same rumor that said Sentinel would be a Voyager and yet he will be a Deluxe. Yet, this same rumor also said Wreck-Gar would be a Voyager and that was later confirmed to be true.
Prime said,  - 2008-06-01 14:53:20
I skipped through it was devestator there (combined form of all 6 G1 constructicons)?
