    End-of-season combiners weren't in the movie.
    Then again, would the movie be better without Menasor, Superion, Defensor, and Bruticus?

    While season 2 was random and hardly contributes to the plotline, it was still fun and introduces combiners that while they weren't in the movie, they were still in season 3 (excluding Bruticus and most of the Combaticons except Swindle and Vortex) and the movie did well without them.

    So you think the bar by which to measure season 2 is its relevance to TF:TM? :confused: 

    What an odd position...

    By that logic, Jolt not being in DOTM is a reason not to buy ROTF...

    Those were the words I couldn't piece out.
    Yes, I remember how More than Meets the Eye was a definitely plot and how even up to episode 6 continued it.
    Individual episodes introducing Skyfire and the Insecticons were great stories, but the writing team must have changed in Season 2.
    Was any of Season 3 really plot lined besides 5 Faces?

    I don't think it would have mattered much in the movie.

    We can all say they were fighting wherever Scramble City left off.

    The movie was written before/early on in season 2.

    Wasn't Bruticus in "The Burden Hardest to Bear"? And I know Blast Off was in Season 3.

    Yes, excellent work in "Chaos"; not the best story, but what is?

    I read this sentence as "Then again, would the movie be better off the way it is?" because those guys WERN'T in the film. How can something be better under conditions it already meets?

    You're also asking for a TV series that's little more than a glorified 30-minute TOY COMMERCIAL to have a plot. 25+ years AFTER THE FACT. The aim of the cartoon was to provide short, episodic adventures of the Transformers so kids would want to buy the toys. Not making them follow a linear plot was a GOOD thing, because then the episodes could be shown in any order without breaking up the short story and thus making it confusing for kids.

    I seem to remember the combiner teams being heavily featured in the 3rd season, since aside from Kup/Scourge/Cyclonus/Blurr/Springer/Arcee, there weren't really any other "regular: characters that weren't part of some sub-group

    Jet/Skyfire wasn't in the Movie either. Does that mean we shouldn't buy Season 1?

    Chip Chase doesn't show up in the movie, forget the whole series.

    Bruticus also was his own individual Combaticon. Look for a group of 6 Combaticons, one is a mini-Bruticus.

    The answer. It's a children's cartoon from the 1980s.

    watch or ignore, it really does not matter.

    And Swindle was guarding Jessica Morgan's hospital room alongside the Protectobots. Wheras Fireflight became a Decepticon.

    Animation errors happen, your point being?
