    The Hub website has a description of the New Recruit episode and a video (not as long as the one posted in another thread).

    Could this mean the new Autobot is really a Decepticon in disguise? In the longer preview (IGN?) none of the Autobots recognize him. Was Smokescreen ever a Decepticon?

    Also, Starscream looking for Hypergon / aka Red Energon? Was Hypergon in past fiction? Is it a super Energon or does it give special abilities?

    Hypergon? Well that gives us a better idea of what it might be able to do, instead of just 'red energon'

    Well there definitely seems something a bit off about Smokescreen, perhaps it's just the shock of there actually being a new Autobot in the show as opposed to another appearance from Wheeljack, but I do think there's more to Smokescreen besides "Here's what you asked for fans, a new Autobot!", like he's on a secret mission or he's a Decepticon in disguise. I'm not saying that's what I want to happen, I'm saying I wouldn't be surprised if it did happen.

    Hypergon? how many energon names and things are they going to come up with?

    Is "Ritalin"-gon up next? as a cure to hypergon

    Starscream drinks some of the Hypergon and it turns him into Smokescreen

    That would be a interesting take.

    That would also explain his reaction when he first saw Knock Out too.

    Well, one thing that is sure, the Hub acknowledge it's Smokescreen so IGN is corrected. No more speculation as Prowl, Jazz, Bluestreak.

    The description of 'Lose Cannons' also hinted that there's something not right with the 'new' Bot and you know how that turned out.

    I'm curious about the red kryptonite- batteries for Apex Armor?

    Yeah, for all we know, Smokescreen might have some heavy luggage or something that he's had for some time. I just hope it doesn't mean that the Autobots will be forced to sit him out of battles for a while.

    But it could be interesting if Smokescreen is suffering from Survivor's Syndrome or some kind of PTSD where he's reckless on the battlefield and just wants to die or something. But I don't really think that'll happen.

    I see Smokescreen and I think hes going to turn out to be like Cheetor in Beast Wars.

    Also, he's going to have a big crush on Arcee or possibly Airachnid when he finds her inevitably frozen in the autobot base and lets her out... just calling it now.

    +1. In terms of RPG party set-ups, I see him as the 'perv' role. The life of the party type guy that gets face-palm reactions from the rest of the group for the stuff that he does. He should fit the 6th spot in the Autobots nicely, until Wheeljack decides to stay and add even more scenarios.

    I like that!! :thumb 

    It would make sense as to why Starscream is looking for it anyway. Guess we'll get to find out Friday.

    Yup. Now I strongly suspect this is where it's going.

    He's going to go Full Silverbolt. Never go Full Silverbolt! XD
