Now you see firsthand how and why Dinobot was the fans' choice to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. :smile: 8-)

A bit of trivia. This was the only episode of the whole series to have been directed by the series's writers, as well as the only one to have been storyboarded instead of being directed as it went along. As scuh, this was a very important episode as Dinobot was one of the series' most complex and phenomenal characters.

Also, when they were recording this episode, as Scott McNeil was trying to do Dinobot's final lines before his death, he kept being interrupted by laughter from the staff members. While still in his character, he yelled out the following words after having spoken what was scripted: "...and let me be judged accordingly. The rest... is silence... DO YOU MIND?! I'M TRYING TO DIE HERE!" :lol: :lol: :lol:

And during Dinobot's funeral, Rattrap mistakenly has his old pre-Transmetal body instead of the-current Transmetal one. :roll:

And now, some iconic quotes from this episode.

Dinobot: "The question that once haunted my being has been answered. The future is not fixed, and my choices are my own. And yet, how ironic... for I now find that I have no choice at all! I am a warrior... let the battle be joined."

Megatron: "Face it, Dinobot! You're old technology, obsolete. What could you possibly do?"
Dinobot: "Improvise."

Optimus Primal: "Well fought, my friend. You saved the valley. You saved the lives of those who live here... and of those who are still to come."
Dinobot: "Then... there is nothing to regret."
Rattrap: "Like I said, you're just a blasted, slag-spouting saurian, but... it's nice to know where you stand."
Dinobot:"Upwind of you, for preference, vermin. ...Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly, the ill deeds along with the good, and let me be judged accordingly. The rest... is silence."

Optimus Primal: "He lived a warrior... and died a hero. Let his spark join the Matrix, the greatest of Cybertron."

Episode 36 - 'Transmutate'
That thing is....... is...... weird!
That thing creeps me out!
As much as it creeped me out, it's death was still sad!

Some believe to have actually been a "she".

Also, Rattrap's mention of Arcee is a nod to the fact that Transmutate is voiced by none other than the voice of G1 Arcee (as well as this series' voice director) Susan Blu.

Oh, and one more bit a trivia about last episode, you can see the skin of the Dinobot's clone hung on the wall in his quarters, showing that he didn't eat it 100%. ;)

Prepare yourself, though, for the next episode is the epic three-part season 2 finale and one of the most awesome finales to any Transformers series ever! 8-)

Yeah, it seems that Ravage here was based more off his Marvel Comics portrayal (speaking and all), instead of his G1 cartoon self (growling mostly). Though, he did have one line of ture dialogue in one episode of G1, and could always speak in the Japanese version of G1, and could have developed a full vocabulary by the time of Beast Wars, so... it's cool.

And I take it you saw the Tripredacus Council for the first time in this episode. The are among the ruling body class of the Predacon Alliance, biding their time to take back Cybertron from the Maximal Council of Elders. Though, they see such Predacons who take matters into their own hands (i.e. - Megatron) as rogue criminals undermining their agenda. Which is why Ravage (a Pred himself) sought to arrest Megatron.
