Episode 5 "Chain of Command". Remember?

But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development.

Episode 26 - 'Other Voices Part 2'
They killed Optimus. what a horrid season finale.
Ok, due to the request of Sabrblade, I will now give my season review.
It was decent, they gave hints to the plot along the way, but didn't just dive right into it
So now I'm going to review the season 1 characters
Maximals -
Optimus Primal
Can be smart and brave at times, but it seems like until the last few episodes he just sits on his butt and waits to be attacked

Rhinox
Wise, strong, and crazy (At one point). Definatly the best maximal of the starting cast!

Rattrap
Gets very annoying at times, but provides a nice comic releif at others

Cheetor
Really didn't play that big of a role, not much to say about him

Tigatron
Wise, strong, and awesome! My favorite maximal yet!

Dinobot
Honorable, violent, and distgusting (double dinobot referance). Without him the maximals wouldnt be as interesting

airazor
pretty much served as a scout/transport for rattrap for the entire season after her debut

Predacons-
Megatron
very smart and cunning, though his constant "yesss" can get annoying

Scorponok
the loyal warrior, served as megatrons suck up the entire season

turantulas
The mad scientist, treacherous, awesome, spider bot. Is in a tie with Waspinator for my favorite Predacon

Terrorsaur
Was pretty much just the Skywarp of Season 1 (The loyal flyer)

Waspinator
The funny, clumsy, gets-blown-up-a-lot wasp. Definatly the funniest character of the show! in a tie with Turantulas for my favorite Predacon!

Blackarachnia
The treacherous, flirty (with turantulas), creepy, spider bot. pretty much you're average Transformers stalker.

Inferno
The crazy, loyal, arsenist, ant! him and waspinator would make a great team! :lol:

And that pretty much sums it up!

:shock: Wow, there is no pleasing some people, is there? :roll:

They did that so as to keep ya wondering what's gonna happen next.

Wing Saber wrote:It was decent, they gave hints to the plot along the way, but didn't just dive right into it
What they didn't focus on plot-wise was given to time of character development and build up. Unlike most other seires, they weren't confined to selling toys, but instead spent their time telling a story and exploring the characters' personalities.

Wing Saber wrote:Optimus Primal

As if they have the resources to launch their own attack on the Preds'. As seen in the episode with Starscream, attacking the Preds' base is suicide.

Wing Saber wrote:Rattrap

:lol: He's quite a character all on his own. His sarcastic, streetwise personality really brought some flavor to the Maximals.

Wing Saber wrote:Cheetor

He did in the earlier episodes. He was the main character for about the first four episodes and had a bunch of prophetic dream sequences throughout the series.

Wing Saber wrote:Dinobot

Just wait till you see this guy in season 2. ;)

Wing Saber wrote:airazor

Yeah, she's my least favorite of the Maximals. Not that I don't like her, I just like everyone else better.

Wing Saber wrote:Predacons-

Oh, have I got a video to show you after you finish this series all the way through. ;)

Wing Saber wrote:Terrorsaur

Skywarp? You mean Starscream, man. Terrorsaur tried to overthrow Megs every chance he got (though those chances were far and few, still, and not as numerous as those given to an actual Starscream ,but still evident).

Wing Saber wrote:Blackarachnia

She only flirted with him to get information out of him. Between her and Airazor, BA is the better fembot.

Right! Onward to season 2!

Scott McNeil voices Rattrap, Dinobot, Waspinator, another character to come in season 2, Armada/Energon Jetfire, Energon Strongarm, Energon Omega Supreme, Cybertron Snarl, Cybertron Backstop, and a few background voices.
Y'know, it's funny; because I've researched voice acting so much, and because I'm pursuing voice acting myself, when I hear voice actors play multiple roles, I actually don't hear the characters anymore. I hear the voice actor. So, in Beast Wars, when Dinobot says something, and then Rattrap says something, and then Waspinator says something, I don't hear it like 'Dinobot, Rattrap, Waspinator,' I hear it like 'Scott McNeil, Scott McNeil, Scott McNeil.' I'm not going to lie, it really takes away from the performances sometimes, because, to me, everybody sounds the same. :/

Scott McNeil was also the voice of Cybertron Buzzsaw. Which, was one of my favorite cameos in Cybertron because it was an homage to Beast Wars. (Which, is kind of cool when you figure that Cybertron Buzzsaw was based on Beast Wars Buzzsaw, who was a repaint of Waspinator, who was voiced by Scott McNeil! Crazy stuff!! XD)


i assume your refering to the velocitron resident and not the gigantion invader

Yeah, that's who he was (incorrectly, but understandably) referring to: the yellow helicopter announcer.

Though, what Buzzsaw are you referring to? The birds? Those were Laserbeak (Killer Condor) drones.

Episode 27 - 'Aftermath'
Woah those new bodies are pretty cool, but why did they kill off Terrorsaur and Scorponok? that was pretty pointless!

It was originally supposed to be Waspinator to be killed off. but he was so popular that Terrorsaur got axed instead.

However, should they have needed to bring them back, the writers had Terrorsaur and Scorponok becoming Transmetals too as they fell into the lava. But sadly, that's the last we ever see of them again. :roll:

As for the reason why anyone had to die, the show was limited to using a certain amount of character models at the time and had to remove some existing characters in order to bring in new ones. In other words, new characters are coming this season. :D
