Technically, it already is. It just so happnes to also be the Japanese name for "Mini-Con".

If "Darkness Rising" is counted as a part of the 26 episodes of the first season, then the total would be 52.

I found it to be quite fantastic!

I was afraid this was going to happen. Unfortunatly, it appears that in this series, They already have their 'vehicle mode parts' before they even have a vehicle mode.

It would seem that our source for the name "Eradicon" was wrong. The name "Vehicon" comes from both the show's creators and the online game "Terrorcon Defense".

The opening theme was probably one of the best English ones yet. It reminded me of The Japanese theme songs for Animated and Micron Legend.

Well, you might not be entirely incorrect. If "Darkness Rising" isn't counted as a part of season 1, then the total episode count is 57. We just don't know for sure. It could be 52 or it could be 57. Only time will tell which it is.

So far my favorite character in this series is definitely Soundwave. He just stands there and watches, and the only time he speaks is when he speaks through others, like on episode 6 when Starscream told soundwave 'i must be there to witness it myself' referring to Prime's defeat, Soundwave used Starscream's words in reference to Megatron. At first I was afraid he was not going to have a personality and he was just going to be like a mindless drone, like a computer, but now im glad, he has his own plans, and thus his own personality

Yes. I like how there are no mindless drones in this series at all. Everyone is their own person with their own thoughts and personalities. Soundwave just chooses not to talk, opting to play back recordings of others instead. And the Vehicons can speak and act to their own accord, they're just not given as much spotlight as the main cast are.

Well, The terrorcons are pretty mindless, probably don't have personalities, and they're only thoughts are probably "BRAAIIINNSSS....."

Well, yeah, you got me. I was mostly referring to those who weren't yet dead (or undead, in their case). :P

Though, I still wonder why Skyquake didn't have an altmode, not even a Cybertronian one. If he wasn't fitted with one, he shouldn't be able to transform even after scanning an altmode.
