    Just a fun idea I thought up of while reading up on Mergers & Acquisitions in the library (shh, don't tell anyone there's a transfan in law school!)

    Anyway, I'm wondering what it'd be like if Prime had the blatant errors that G1 did. For example, can you imagine if they screwed up and aired episodes out of order, like Operation Bumblebee before Orion Pax part 3? Or if one of the Starscream clones was actually colored like Thundercracker?

    I guess visual depictions would be best, so I invite you artists out there to fabricate G1-styled errors for TF Prime!

    Here's one-- Bulkhead is seen bowing down to Megatron with the other Insecticons in Armada.

    how about some BEAST WARS animation errors? There are some really funny ones like people with limbs rotated wrong or flat out having another character's arm.

    Megatron with Arcee's arm during a scene would be specialy magical.

    Hah, the only Beast Wars animation error I can remember was when Rattrap was seen in his original gray mouse form in Code of Honor, instead of his transmetal form at the end of the episode.

    How about animating Optimus as a Decepticon? Oh wait, that's already happened and it wasn't a mistake. Haha!

    I never understood why FRENZY was called RUMBLE and vice-versa

    as for Prime, not that mistakes wouldn't happen but unlike G1, TFP is less about pushing sales on the Toys and more about trying to tell a story.

    Yeah, I mean the comic had already been out for a while and i think the toys came out a week or so before the catoon started and they had FIBRIR so why the cartoon had FIRRIB is beyond me

    Characters like Bumblebee, Arcee and Cliffjumper having their Earth modes on Cybertron.

    Wait...

    Kidding. I think a good one would be to randomly have Cliffjumper show up in a couple group shots of the Autobots. Or suddenly having Soundwave's face-mask missing for a shot.

    That sort of thing wouldn't happen these days, if something like that were to ever happen (particularly arm-switching), it'd have to happen deliberately, and not as part of an accidental oversight, and it'd probably never make it into the final sequence (otherwise heads would roll in the animation/modeling departments)

    Though there have been minor inconsistencies through-out, mainly Arcee's pink hightlights disappearing then reappearing.

    Though it would be interesting if Screamer showed up during a panning group shot on the Nemesis bridge.

    How about Megs and Soundwave holding hands while flying?

    Come to think of it, I don't think Prime's 'Cons can fly unless they're in alt mode.

    So that's it, let's have the 'cons fly in "Darkness Rising" but never again :lol

    The autobots would randomly fly in robot mode, even though they arent capable.... or in this continuity, the same error could apply to the decepticons.

    Soundwave would be flying in jet mode side by side with his 'laserbeak' drone, and they would be the same size.

    Knockout would occasionally speak using Breakdown's voice.

    Dreadwing would show up one day in Skyquake's color scheme.

    Cliffjumper would randomly be shown in battles, because the writer's forgot he was supposed to be dead.

    Starscream being a different color for a second and back to normal the next.
    Megatron transforms and takes off and sounds like the MF going by on Star Wars.
    The Autobots being able to fly before the main episodes came on and forgot how to when the main episodes started up.

    Much like shockwave having two hands in episode 1. Starscream should loose his decepticon symbols on his legs.....Oh wait he already has.
