Hey there. I finally have a day off so I thought I'd spark up a topic if anyone wants to chat about..... ENERGON Energon. What was once simply a highly concentrated super-fuel that powered the Transformers like gas powers earth cars has taken a life of it's own, yet never really being truly defined. Perhaps the Transformers and we fans share the lack of true knowledge of what Energon is and can do. At this point, Energon seems to have evolved from turbo-gas to a nearly supernatural substance that can create life itself, and automatically format machines into Transformers. It has been shown to exist naturally, be condensed/created, be in crystal form, liquid form, in snack form... Then of course we have the recently introduced "Dark Energon", the anti-spark, the blood of Unicron. That which corrupts life. It can raise undead TFs, and who knows what else...I doubt the writers know. Energon the series treated it a tangible, manipulative light source like a lightsaber or the G1 hand weapons of the leaders. It had a much more in-hand feel, with the chips etc. I suppose the Bay movies are what re-addressed the concept and elevated it to the nearly mystical alongside the Allspark Cube. As I'm watching Beast Wars even then it seems like a powerful radioactive energy source and not much else. So, what are your thoughts on Energon? Do you like the supernatural unknown all powerful life source or simply fuel resources to be fought over? Personally, I will say that I did always enjoy the G1 'cons attacking Earth fuel stations to get oil/gas to make Energon. I think if it is something they can make, yet is rare, can add to the war idea instead of this unattainable mystical liquid. Of course the Sun Harvesters from the films make it, but I think that's a little much. Annnnyway, please, you talk now.
