    I watched the last episode of Cybertron last week (missed it the first time around) and did anyone notice at the end when you see the Armada minicons with Carlos, Rad, & Alexis + right after it showed Energon Hotshot with Kicker. And they were ALL watching the ships leave!

    I thought it was so cool. Expecially cuz you could see the kids grown up & the bots looked the same (cuz they dont age that fast).

    Did anyone else notice this??


    Also in the 1st ep of Armada, on cybertron you can see G1 beachcomber standing there with G1 Skyfire running up as bot mode & transforming into Jet mode. Then on Earth, instead of like Cybertron where the bots looked the same B4 they scanned their vehicles, Prime comes down sportin the G1 look! He had the exact same color scheme & placement. Also had the windows & smokestacks and lines on lower legs. I think it was G1 prime originally.

    All that got me thinking that transformers continuity has longed since G1. Because from there we got G2, sane universe. Then came the Beast wars. Same universe as G1, + Beast Machines was the same as best wars. Then Robots in Disguise has predacons from Beast Wars and they talk about their Decepticon ancestors. At the last ep of RID they show us a minicon symbol to hint whats coming next. So that means Armada is in the same universe as RID. Then A + E + C. At the end of cybertron it shows all the human characters from the unicron triligies.

    It does have alot of loose ends, but hey, its all connected. This is why I think ALL transformers are cool (so far) becuase they are all one in the same at the end of the day.

    lmk what you guys think of my essay here. Thanks!

    haha, no I didnt see him. I DID only see it once though. I suppose he could have been in the backround. I'll watch it again, just to find out more (TIVO:D  )

    I thought it was absolutely HORRIBLE they added the Armada kids and Kicker. That was my only problem with the dub really. Should have just left it the way it was made to be.

    Im curious why? Why would it be horrible when all it is, is showing the kids that were on the same earth, watch their friends leave?

    because it's not supposed to be the Optimus from Armada and Energon. Not the same Red Alert, not the same Jetfire, not the same Hot Shot. All of the sudden they forgot they have ever been on Earth and they don't know anything about Earth? It just doesn't make sense.

    You guys do realise that in North America, Armada, Energon, and Cybertron are part of the same continuity?

    it confirmed the plot holes, and watch the dvd that comes with classics prime&megs.......euwhhh...
    But he didn't have the Spark of Comination any longer either, so it can be overlooked
    hasbro forced them into a single continuity, with plot holes the size of cybertron

    In GF, the characters are in their own special universe. in Cybertron, they're fightning a black hole that formed from the destruction of Unicron(not the Super Energon Star(tv ppl, tv)), eventhough unicron was destroyed in Galvatron's body by the SES. then at the begining of Cyb, we have a revived SS and Megatron. Landmine, Jetfire, Hotshot, and Red Alert act completely different. And everyone else is dumb founded about this "Earth" place. not to mention the minicon Jolt, which truely destroys the continuity.

    The original idea was to have all three shows fit together in one continuity though. Superlink/Energon kinda ruined that when the writers changed the ending from the original planned ending of the destruction of Unicron causing a black hole. So Galaxy Force became a new continuity to get around the plot holes while Cybertron stayed with the original plans even though it caused some plot holes.

    Well, if Hasbro went with the original idea of Armada taking place after G1 Season 3, there would be enough plot holes to give you a good headache. :lol 

    I personally watched the english version of Armada. It was alright. I really liked the animation in the last two episodes. If we had that quality through out Armada, it would of been better to watch. I tried watching Energon, but gave up around episode 25. I couldn't stand the dub at all. For Cybertron, I decided to watch the Galaxy Force anime, which I enjoyed alot.

    wow this thread is cool now! Some good points fo show (for sure pun intended)

    heres another point
    This is why I said it has LOTS of loose ends and untied knots. But your reasoning is acceptable.

    I know dude, ME TOO! Fo show

    But the best by Sparky Prime, IMO, which to me explains alot. *stupid Hasbro*

    I thought the nods to the other series was neat, if tacked on. Only thing about it for me is it means there's apparently more than one Hot Shot, since the Energon version was hanging out with Kicker watching things. (Ironhide would've made as much or more sense, and with less conflict) Oh, well, maybe there is two Hot Shots - they do have different voices after all. :) 

    A Minicon symbol showed up at the end of RiD? I musta missed that. Anyone able to elaborate ?

    Gonzo took it and made it their own. SOME plot holes, the whole show was a plot hole.
