    Are there any moments that are in your opinion, highlights of the entire series? A scene that really packed a wallop, that was epic, spectacular, intense, powerful, and if you remembered Prime years from now, you'd remember that scene? Or possibly just a scene you would deem a signifigant scene in the series overall?

    My memorable moments are, and just to give you some ideas:

    *Ratchet arguing with Optimus in Stronger, Faster.
    *Megatron and Optimus Vs. Unicron's antibodies in One Shall Rise, Part III
    *Bulkhead and Breakdown Vs. MECH in Operation: Breakdown
    *Orion Pax confronting Megatron in Orion Pax, Part III
    *Megatron Vs the Insecticon in Crossfire
    *Arcee and Starscream in Partners
    *Miko and Bulkhead in the cave in Rock Bottom
    *Jack and Megatron in Rock Bottom
    *Optimus wielding the Star Saber in Legacy
    *Megatron entering the Autobot base in One Shall Rise, Part II

    Ratchet's argument with Optimus is probably the most memorable moment of the series for me. Jeffrey Combs' voice acting in this scene is fucking incredible, and frankly, if I ever met the man, I never want to piss him off, if this was what he is like. And finally, an Autobot actually stands up to/disagrees with Optimus - and at that, Optimus' most loyal supporter, even if he's not in his right state of mind. Ratchet is clearly saying things he would normally hold back about, and even Optimus realizes that he's losing the war as he's leading the Autobots right now. Both Optimus and Ratchet have solid points and serious flaws in their arguments, and this proved that a "fight scene" doesn't have to be trading blows to be awesome.

    The only one that sticks in my head is from the first few episodes (can't remember which one exactly):
    Arcee: "I wouldn't."
    Starscream: "Oh, but I might."

    The scenes that usually stick to my mind are the cheesy and non-serious ones, like:

    *Bumblebee's robot dancing
    *Optimus and Arcee holding hands to become one with the allspark
    *most of the Miko/Bulkhead moments

    Starscream finally coming to terms with his place in the Decepticons was a pretty moving scene for me.

    the last scene of darkness rising will always give me goosebumps:
    a heroic score playing, the bots drive off into the sunset, optimus: "We will defend this planet, we will defend our HOME"
    awesome

    Wheeljack vs Soundwave. That was just all kinds of awesome. As was Orion Pax part 3 where Megatron fights Bumblebee, Bulkhead and Ratchet.

    Starscream showing up to save Breakdown in Operation Breakdown. When the Autobots showed up to save him, Cylas was surprised, but I was surprised Starscream would sneak out behind Megatron's back to save anyone.

    Starscream's dialogue to Breakdown after that was cool too, he made Breakdown keep his honor and planted the seeds for his eventualy betrayal/desertion of the Decepticons. Shame nothing ever transpired from that talk.

    Agreed. My jaw literally dropped when I first saw Soundwave lay the smackdown on Airachnid.

    Miko: Well, I've actually been in subway stations. I grew up around a major metropolis. Unlike Mr. "I've never been outside Jasper, Nevada".

    Jack: I have been to Cybertron.

    Best human dialogue so far.

    - Hardshell punching Wheeljack so hard that it created shockwaves. I'm amazed he survived. Not saying I wish he died but WOW.

    - Optimus and Megatron's fight in One Shall Fall

    - Optimus camly blasting through Vehicons in the Nemesis corridor like a freaking boss.

    - Soundwave searching for Laserbeak while Ratchet hides in dead silence. It was like something out of a horror movie.

    - Bulkhead and Breakdown kicking human ass side by side. By the AllSpark I wish Breakdown would've kindly told Starscream to screw off and run off with the Autobots. I know it sounds absurd but I still have high hopes that he's alive and regains control of his corpse.

    That moment when the show managed to write a storyarc magnificently well. OH WAIT.

    Seriously though, Soundwave beating Airachinid and Unicron's..entire screen-time comes to mind [John Noble played the HELL out of that role].

    Sorry, I'm going overboard on this one. My top 8 not in any order:

    1. The Optimus vs. multiple Unicrons fight scenes in One Shall Rise Parts 1 and 2. The ending was predictable, but watching everything unfold was amazing for a cartoon TV show. I've watched that over and over again and it is thrilling every time.
    2. The ending to Rock Bottom: Megatron just standing there, silently watching Starscream squirm. It summed up the two of them, their personalities and their relationship, so perfectly.
    3. Optimus vs. the train in Convoy. Loved it.
    4. The scene in Orion Pax, Part III where Orion Pax is getting beat down by the Vehicons. He finally stands up for himself, takes out his enemies with a couple of poorly aimed shots, and finally convinces himself who he really is.
    5. The Optimus and Arcee "death" scene in Scrapheap, not because it suggest something romantic between them, but because Arcee and OP's working relationship had been on the rocks since Darkness Rising Part 1, and this scene proved to be a moment of reconciliation between them.
    6. Optimus and Wheeljack riding together in the Jackhammer in Loose Cannons. It was a one-off sightgag, it was unexpected and made me laugh out loud. They added some humor in the show at OP's expense, and it worked to hilarious effect.
    7. The Mexican Standoff in Triangulation, because I'm a sucker for those kind of things. Also, I like how OP manhandles Starscream in the ep and sees right through his patronizing compliments.
    8. The fight scene from the kids' eye-view in Darkness Rising Part 4. Giving the viewer a kid's-eye-view of the fight ramped up the intensity of the action, and made it all more real when Jack bows out shortly after the return to base. The sound effects and music were effective in that scene too. Well done.
