I do hope we get to see at least one more character changing color schemes to match their toy's repaint.

I got a kick out of seeing Shockwave changing his color scheme last week. Since there is no Galvatron for Megatron to become, Shadow Blade Megatron could be his fearsome new powered-up form. And Lugnut could become Atomic Lugnut with his jealousness and prove to be a serious threat to Autobot and Decepticon alike.

One thing is for certain though, these last two episodes will be amongst the best episodes we ever got in the last twenty-five years.

The Downward Spiral has begun.

It's good to FINALLY see how Optimus got expelled, and how Prowl met his team.

Starscream at long last gets a new body, and the protoforms that were stolen are revealed to be onboard Megatron's old warship and were used to create Starscream's clones. Now Megs used them to create three Omega Supreme clones (that are surprisingly NOT Omega Sentinels). Notice that, prior to Lugnut obtaining the code from Arcee, the Omega clones were already in his color scheme. And now that they've got his head look, I'll call them "Omega Lugnuts".

BIGGEST MASTERFORCE REFERENCE YET!!!!!! The winged jetpack Optimus uses has God Ginrai wings! I say God Ginrai instead of PMOP w/ Apex Armor because of the reason he needs them. Prime said he needs the jetpack to keep up with Megatron and fight him on the moon. This is extremely identical to the reason why Ginrai needed his Godbomber upgrade: to fight on the moon against Overlord and BlackZarak.

At last the Female Starscream returns. Yay.

And now I REALLY can't wait for Part 2, where we'll get to see When Legends Fall, but hopefully they'll come out triumphant.

Awesome "Endgame"! And the female Starscream, perhaps, Dreadwing, lives...Yes! Loved the back story on Optimus' team and maybe Arcee will make it? We know Starscream will be back and with those protoforms near by...maybe Dirge will rise? I'm still hoping to see some new toys, like Arcee, but so far nothing!? Hasbro showed some new toys earlier this year at a toy fair, but perhaps they cancelled their plans? And the fact that they mentioned Elita-1 in the episode gives me hope that Spider-Lady will return and maybe there's a chance of a spin-off Beast Wars Animated?

Sorry, man. But even if it is a reference to all of that, it is really the new Voyager: Wingblade Optimus Prime. Sure, we haven't seen it yet, but I can tell.
As for the episode: sweet! I loved every minute of it, and Shockwave's extending legs were hilarious! Remember when Shockwave and Lugnut were seeing who could bow for longer? And when Lugnut fell, Shockwave clutched his chest and laughed? Absolute win!

Obviously. I am saying that, based on the look of the jetpack from this episodes, Wingblade Optimus Prime is likely a reference to God Ginrai. So, how am I wrong.

and Zac clear, stop spamming.
Cheetor2 said,  - 2009-05-16 12:29:11
Wonderful episode. I also loved how we got the backstory for Optimus and how he came to command this crew. Prowl never finished his cyber ninja training because fate had other plans for him.

They need to keep this series going. I feel like they are trying to cram too much into these last 2 episodes. More time is needed to tie up all the loose ends.
The King said,  - 2009-05-16 12:58:00
I haven't watched this episode yet, but in season 3, I feel like they are tying up all the loose ends too fast, and I felt that in This is why I hate Machines too little was explained, so it was a waste of time. However, I do believe that this show needs another season.
I predict that in the end all the Autobots and Decepticons are going t come out.

Sorry, you aren't.

great episode, cant wait till part two, hopefully they will make a beast wars animated
5g said,  - 2009-05-16 14:45:11
cool episode, and i didnt see the lugnut supreme coming
and shock wave laughing, golden.

and next week may herald the return of the blurr cube because the concept art episode number was 42, endgame part 2

and someone ban said, for he has the worst posts that make no sense
powered shadow commander said,  - 2009-05-16 15:27:54
so maybe the jet optimus toy will be a retool or something
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-05-16 17:10:32
Oh, one more thing that makes Wingblade Optimus Prime a reference to God Ginrai: his gauntlets! They're identical to the ones God Ginrai wears.
Perceptor said,  - 2009-05-16 18:14:06
SOOOOO Awesome and SOOOOOO sad, that this series is nearing its end.... Ya-HOOO, sigh...
safeguard900 said,  - 2009-05-16 19:04:33
WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?!?!?! WHY MUST IT END SO SOON ?!?!?!?!!! Loved th ep! P.S. Did aby of you notice that OP's jetpack (W/O stabilizers) looks like classic jetfire's jetpack (I have the toy)
JAB said,  - 2009-05-16 19:46:04
Awsome episode! I just hope that Omega surpreme comes back online and has a big battle with the three "Omega Lugnuts" for part 2.
zac clear said,  - 2009-05-16 20:06:52
lugut supreme will destory by autobots
Black Starscream said,  - 2009-05-16 20:15:25
As soon as they showed the Optimus with the mmore complete jetpack and Gauntlets, I said to myself "Sabr is so gonna be the first to notice this". Really gotta hand it to hasbro for that one.
I really liked the ep, but I'm sad cause its nearly over. And I hated the way Starscream was almost literally just tossed around for comedy in the ep. He deserves much more, and we should be alowed to see the seekers rise again. They should make a sequal akin to Headmasters where the battles just continue in more bot to bot action in sphere larger than earth.
Oh yeah, also I dunno who mentioned it but you're right; The jet pack did look like classics jetfire's pack. I was almost thrown off cause even the Ginrai style one had the cannons on it.
blaster80 said,  - 2009-05-16 20:20:55
i honestly think that this stinks that it is ending to soon! well anyway i hope there is a season 4. and p.s. omega supreme is going to kick the omega lugnuts butts!
blaster80 said,  - 2009-05-16 20:24:56
p.p.s.s remember th first three episodes of g1 where at the end of pt 3 op gets sideswipes rocket pack? don't tell me it doesn't look like the one in animated without the stableisers
luvtransformers said,  - 2009-05-16 21:09:15
This episode would have been more great if starscream brought Dirge online inside of the decepticon ship.Oh I also cant believe that starscream got a new body and got it blown to bits by the bot that he hates the most all in one day"talk about anger".Lastly I was excited to see that the female starscream/overlord was still online.
Jumpercliff said,  - 2009-05-16 21:14:10
Now this was a good episode. Now I can't wait for part 2!
Sidewinder said,  - 2009-05-16 21:36:56
I thought it was interesting, the "I'm Daddy's favorite" fight between Lugnut and Shockwave was interesting. I have trouble believeing that Megatron PLANED for Lugnut to be the basis for the Decepticon Supremes. Rather, I think, he was just making the best of a bad situation. Eitherway, he played it just right so its hard to tell. I do believe that it was a mistake on Megatron's part to just shoot off Starscream's legs...he should learn to finish a job.

XD
lord megatron said,  - 2009-05-17 02:12:03
So Lugnut now has control of 3 giant brutish Omega clones and has a rivalry with Shockwave...this can't spell out anything good.
Sadly, Animated appears to be coming to a close. I can only hope that with the time that we have left with the series, we'll see most of the loose ends tied up and recieve a respectful ending to one of the best Transformers series out there. I will miss Animated when it's gone. Hopefully, with a little luck we'll see a follow-up series continuing where Animated leaves off, wherever that may be.

Sidewinder said,  - 2009-05-17 16:42:55
I know this likely won't happen, but I keep hoping for an American Transformers cartoon that does NOT feature anyone named "Optimus", "Rodimus", "Megatron", or "Galvatron. Lets take a look at an original starring cast, and not just homages to the same characters over and over again.
Black Starscream said,  - 2009-05-17 19:02:44
Watch Transformers Victory. No homages there. Or watch BW Neo. There's technically like one prime there but the rest are all original.
Hot Rodimus said,  - 2009-05-17 19:39:39
I really want to see the last epsoide. But I don't want see the series end.
Sidewinder said,  - 2009-05-17 22:31:16
I'm familiar with Victory and BW Neo, both Japanese franchises. I'm saying that, though it will probably never happen, I would like to see the same kind of treatment from an American cartoon, and not a dub of the afore mentioned. I mean an origianl story for an original American cartoon based on the Transformers that don't involve revamps of the same characters.

What I'm driving at is that the American shows just like to retool the same characters over and over again, they don't like to go forward and come up with something new.
Sabrblade. said,  - 2009-05-18 10:44:08
Sidewinder, they have to reuse names in order to be able to keep using them. Otherwise, they can't use them normally anymore. Look what happened to the names "Jazz" and "Bluestreak".
Sidewinder said,  - 2009-05-18 19:35:20
This I completely understand, its a copy right issue. Thats fine, put characters like that in the background and focus on a new cast of characters. All I am asking for is new, original stories with new, original characters. TF Animated came the closest, but it still riddled with homages and send ups of characters past. Keep Optimus and Megatron as leaders of their factions, but tell us the stories of other characters. For the last 25 years its been Megatrons battling Optimus Primes because clearly in all of the planet of Cybertron no one else is fighting this war. The Wreckers would make a fantastic storyline to explore, and you can keep Megs and Optimus in the background with their exploits as war news. One of the best post G1 series was Beast Wars which is why I DON'T want them to revamp it as the follow up to TF Animated. It was fine, let it alone. G1 was riddled with animation errors, continuinty issues, and lack luster stories, and that's been relatively fixed with TF Animated. Let us please, please move forward.

I really hope we see these characters again. Like, I hope some kind of spin-off series, like what they did with ben 10, since the series seems to be, going away.
rydrjet said,  - 2009-05-20 09:49:53
its cool but after predecons rising what happened to blackaracnia?
cyberwuss said,  - 2009-05-21 17:00:11
Great show!
ZhaneX said,  - 2009-05-22 00:11:55
Good episode. I thought Optimus with wings was weird, but still, cool.
The flash-backs were nice too. Showing how Optimus came to be Captain of Omega Supreme, and how Prowl joined the crew.
Overall, a great episode.
And 3 'Lugnut Supreme's? That's gonna be a problem...

you know i think at the end of transformers animated end game part 2 i think optimus became the new magnus since he captured megatron,shockwave,and lugnut and sentinel was upset so the wingblade optimus prime should have been called optimus magnus and probaly come with a magnus hamer
