The latest installment of Transformers Animated aired today on CartoonNetwork.  Let the conversation begin!  What did you think?

I'd give it an a-
It was a good ep with a lot of camos

Awesome. :-D I loved how Shockwave turned into Purple Shockwave in the end, justifying my purchase. Of course, it was $5, but...

Another great episode. I'm going to be so sad if this show is not brought back.

Love Ratchet, love Fanzone, love that they are teaming up for a Cybertronian buddy cop story.

Love the cameos, Tracks and Rattrap.

Great episode! I too loved when Shockwave turned purple...justifying my Target purchase before they goofed and lowered it to $5 (Yikes..I need to forget). I also loved the numerous cameos, like Tracks. But how is it that Fanzone was able to breathe on Cybertron? It was great to see Arcee, hopefully Hasbro will release the toy soon? I'm thinking that Hasbro may have cancelled any new TFA toy releases...the TF website doesn't have any TFA toys listed any more...only ROTF. I was hoping for the Constructicons, Rodimus and female Starscream.

I loved the ep. Fanzone was pretty funny. I loved it when he was going to spit on the one bot. I liked that Arcee seemed to remember Ratchet at the end. Only 2 more eps left.

5/10/09: What I hope to see for Sentinel is him get demoted to a maintainance bot by Ultra Magnus and Optimus and his crew become elite guard soldiers. Bulkhead will become the head of all spacebridge stuff and Ratchet will enjoy a nice peaceful retirement along with Omega Supreme. Although I hope not to see the show end or , like some of you have said, make a follow-up series.

I cannot believe how fantastic this show is. Especially since when it first came on, I was set to hate it. I t wasn't my style of animation. It's like when Star Trek:The Next Generation first aired. I was all set to hate that and instead I ended up loving it.

I am hoping that this new Hasbro/Discovery network turns out to be something good.

Oh dear Lord that was AWESOME!!!!! Tracks, Rattrap, Grandus... Perceptor and Alpha Trion are so great, Jazz travels to Earth?! Let's make him a regular member of Team Earth, under Optimus' command where he belongs!!!

God, I don't want this series to end! It's just gets better and better.

awesome that we get to see shockwave in his "true colors", and it might be a bad thing that arcee is awake. on the other hand lugnut is jealous, and arcee might go ninja bot on them with her blades.
Jumpercliff said,  - 2009-05-09 12:21:08
That was one HECK of an episode. We get at least one line from Flareup, Grandus, and Tracks, an Animated version of Rattrap, and Jazz joins the Earth bound Autobots. Plus, a hint of the possible return of Arcee, and we get to see Shockwave's "true colors". Awesome!
Inferno said,  - 2009-05-09 12:36:41
Not to mention Steeljaw (from the back) who was one of the Autobots who fled after they saw the "organic"

kntstar said,  - 2009-05-09 13:07:12
I liked the Maccadam's referance. Plus the fortress maximus and metroplex ones too. This whole episode is like Transformers fanservice.
someoneisback said,  - 2009-05-09 13:09:23
The last line said at the end of the episode tells all.
ZhaneX said,  - 2009-05-09 14:03:09
Yeah, with how Arcee remembered Ratchet.
And the cameos were great, this makes the second Rattrap cameo, plus they put in Maccadam's, which is great.
Shockwave showing his 'true colors' is great, I guess that coloration is no longer a toy exclusive thing.
The giant cannon coming from Fortress Maximus was great. I wonder if it can transform?
And also, it's interesting that the sector around Fortress Maximus is called 'Metroplex'.
Jazz going to Earth was great, he always seemed to fit in more with the Earth crew than Sentinel. And also, it seems like the council is getting wise to the simple rule of 'Never Listen to Sentinel'.
Sidewinder said,  - 2009-05-09 14:29:28
Fantastic episode. Loved Jazz's part, and that they showed Fanzone as a really good detective. The team up between Ratchet and Fanzone was done perfectly, both are onry old grouches that don't take slag from anyone. 100% wonderful, they really out did themselves with this one.
jetfire97 said,  - 2009-05-09 15:57:53
iv got one word to describe this episode awsome.
i loved the way shockwave is purple and arcee can remember.also if you go onto youtube and type in peaugh you will see his icon is ratrap.
blaster80 said,  - 2009-05-09 16:11:19
OMG! we were soooooooooooo close to seeining fort max in animated! grandus is a big sissy! anywway glad to see jazz staying for good on earth!
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-05-09 16:15:10
That's not Rattrap! That's Rattletrap! No joke! His name is Rattletrap!

It's interesting how, in this series, Metroplex and Fortress Maximus are the names of actual buildings rather than giant bots who become buildings. Metroplex is the name of the Council's HQ and Fort Max is the name of the Elite Guard's battle station.

I do not like TFA Grandus. This one is big, stupid, and cowardly towards organics. G1 Grandus is NOTHING like that. He was a capable warrior and one of the most elite soldiers of his time. This Grandus is just a sad knockoff.

Not too crazy about Flareup either.
5g said,  - 2009-05-09 16:59:17
awesome episode, but i caught it later on u2be but one of the best episodes this season, especially with the return of arcee, and lugnuts jealousy toward shockwave.

this is also the first episode without optimus prime, and now you know
hot rod said,  - 2009-05-09 19:54:11
great episode, lots of cameos, is flare up a girl? and good to see tracks and rattletrap
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-05-09 20:16:07
Yes, Flareup is a another fembot.

Black Starscream said,  - 2009-05-09 23:45:47
GOtta say its gettin good. Animated quickly got me to warm up to it especially with all the references and the bot action (although I still hate the Autobots' general lack of any real, non melee weapons).Jazz was awesome, and I loved Fanzone's line of "This is why I hate machines.Some more than others." I wanna see starscream get his body back though. He does fairly well in animated (he mentally owns omega supreme O_O) but he still deserves a bit more. Hasbro really needs to continue animated or otherwise sequal it.
Starscreamed said,  - 2009-05-10 07:23:33
I agree with Black Starscream...Hasbro does need to continue TFA or make it into a sequel. I don't know about you all, but I haven't heard anything about new Transformers cartoons. I'm not sure if Cartoon Network didn't want more TFA or what? And I don't hold out hope for the Hasbro/Discovery'd be education oriented, so not good for juicy story lines and it likely won't be carried on all cable/sat systems. And while I love the new big screen TF movies, I prefer the animated versions...the movie Starscream is just ugly and that transformation??!!
CyberV said,  - 2009-05-10 08:11:54
Anybody ELSE here think Sentinel Prime would do well as a Decepticon? He has pretty much all their basic traits and NEVER seems to retain any character growth he attains.

Great episode. Want Sentinel to die. Want Jazz to stay. Want another season. Or a spinoff. Or more toys (they've GOT to give us Omega Supreme)
hot rod said,  - 2009-05-10 13:43:39
at 2:34 u can see hubcap before warpath walks by,i also see tap out
grimlock said,  - 2009-05-10 14:29:12
Sentinel Prime I think is as bad as Nova Prime.
Which with Nova Prime wanting to rule everything is saying something. I hope follows the example of the other Sentinel Primes and dies.
Primal said,  - 2009-05-11 09:09:40
To be fair Sabrblade Animated Grandus isn't the same Grandus. He also didn't seem that clumsy to me, and weren't all Cybertronians afraid of organics? And when did he seem that stupid?
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-05-11 18:36:03
I know he's not the same, but he's pretty close in terms of physical resemblance. But his personality was a real turn off for me, as his namesake was cool, unlike this version.
Primal said,  - 2009-05-11 18:47:11
He didn't really seem to have that much personality other than a scared Cybertronian like the rest were. But hey, we all have our likes and dislikes so it's fine.

How did Rachet loose the Magnus hammer when talking to Jazz? (I can't tell, correct me if I'm wrong.)
