1)Yes,the animation really is good. 2)Yes,this is intended for younger children.Younger adults in this situation.Yes,the Alchemor held alot of prisoners!You will see so many throughout the series.Don't worry,new arcs happen each episode! 3)Underbite seems like a bulldog...there are so many Animalcons in this show.Steeljaw and Hammerstrike...one turns out to be the most prominent Decepticon in the series,and the other is an epic Sharkticon.You'll see more guys with his design. 4)Crazily enough,Grimlock as of now is just a Cybertronian.Though keep your hopes high for him. 5)The "Robots in Disguise" part is very flawed in this series.Suprising,for it's the title of the series. 6)Like I said earlier.Correct.Merely Cybertronians. 7)Bumblebee got demoted by people.For the one that smothered the original Megatron,he really is rank lowered.This action won't be solved until the finale. 8)Strongarm...and Sideswipe,I kinda think they're both jerks.They'll be an entire episode on their teamwork...they are the most important Autobots of the series. 9)You got Sideswipe's personality 100% right. 10)Russell=Spike and Denny=Sparkplug.Spot on Captian. 11)I like Wheelie...Fixit is really cute.Although I hate Star Trek Movieverse Wheelie. 12)Optimus as a spirit...I can't say anything due to spoiler territory. 13-14)Good points. 15)You'll get both. 16)Yeah...those statues were cool.They will be revisited in two Season 3:Combiner Force episodes. 17)See yah!
