    This ep is on now on the HUB...very strnage character models and colorings for many characters, most notably Megatron. He looks downright odd. Im guessing a different studio did this ep?

    One thing that kinda bothered me while watching this episode was the ending in which Optimus says everything's back to normal and the camera pans out to show you the World Trade Center. I know this episode was made way before that, but in real life, it's not back to normal.

    It's one of the episodes animated by AKOM, there are usually a high level of animation errors in AKOM episodes, I particularly like how they're all shocked when they see the alligatorcon, but then proceed to simply stroll away from it :lol

    The animation was so shitty- no real etxture shading of metal. very flat, cels not double painted so they are transparent in some areas...really low quality.
    My favorite animation errors of all time is how Devastator switches from eyes to visor from one scene to another. I guess he takes his shades off a lot.

    Rusty the WTC shots got me thinking too.

    I know weveryone says "Carnage in C-Minor" is the worst, but I'm sorry, THIS is the worst G1 episode. Shitty plot, shittier animation, and other shit tha tjust doens't make sense. When Mirage and Ratchet are carrying the alligator-bot (or whatever), they both say in unison "this alligator is big and heavy". Even as a kid I thought it sucked

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought this. However, the whole disassembly thing in this episode sort of negates a ton to do with TF death, to my point of view.

    Carnage in C-Minor is far worse imo. At least the scale is somewhat consistent in City of Steel, and you don't have dead characters suddenly reappearing or other ones fighting their own faction members.
    Carnage is just a mess.

    As much as I like G1, the entire series is riddled with animation errors. But hey, it's all part of it's charm.

    I now have an extra Skullcruncher to paint like Optimus and put that Junkion Blacksmith head on.

    Funny too that the 3 eps listed "Autobot Run, The Core", and this all only had season one characters. Maybe AKOM didnt get the season two character models?

    One thing that was cool is we got Rumble, Frenzy, Buzzsaw, and Laserbeak all in the same ep.

    Not cool, Megatron has a black gun barrel and his face looks like the guy who played Magneto and Gandolf.

    I agree. Carnage in C-Minor knocks them all out of the box. It's just bad.
