    Hi all.

    I have a request to make of everyone here on the boards.

    Could any of of you list some of your favorite Rodimus Prime episodes from G1 Season 3 please?

    Like an episode which really made Roddy look good.

    I'm getting ready to make a video, and I want some good stuff, and I'd appreciate any of your thoughts.

    Only two episodes I can think that I thought Rodimus Prime was good in...

    There's the episode where Daniel is locked in a nightmare world by the Quintessons, and Rodimus pretty much cheers him on in overcoming the nightmare.

    Then there's "The Burden Hardest to Bear," in which I feel most sympathetic to him... he never really wanted to be the Autobot leader, he knows he could never be like Optimus.

    Return Of Optimus Prime. I thought Rodney looked really good when Prime knocked him out with one punch.

    I did not think he was that great in season 3 but if you could use some stuff from the animated movie as rod/rodimus he was great in that

    I agree, it seems like he finally accepted his role, and the very next episode was the Return of Prime, so there goes that out the window.

    Actually "The Face of Nijika" followed "The Burden Hardest to bear" .

    I don't think Rodimus Prime was much good in any of the episodes. Marvel comics Rodimus Prime was a much better portrayal of the character.

    Dark Awakening also has some good Rodimus Prime moments.

    If you're looking for footage of Rodimus being awesome, there is a great one in one of the first episodes of Headmasters - The Birth of Double Convoy. You have Rodimus Prime and Optimus Prime fighting side by side. It's good stuff if you can get the footage for it.

    I really can't think of a time Rodimus Prime impressed me. When he nearly killed himself trying to access the Matrix? When a half-dead Prime with one arm kicked his ass? When he nearly doomed the entire galaxy by sending his men into a hate plague trap? When Prime knocked him out with one punch?

    Actually, does anyone else think Prime was just trying to make Rodney feel better when he claimed the Matrix made him too strong in Dark Awakening? It didn't seem to help in TRoOP.

    I've always appreciated "The Ultimate Weapon".

    Not exactly a Rodimus focus episode, but a good character piece for him nonetheless, with him having to rally his team despite his own self-doubts, and then calling Galvatron on his bluff at the end with a bit of self-confident badassery.

    Rodimus is awesome! How long a list do you want?

    Best episodes to pull stuff from - FFOD (don't think anyone's mentioned taking down the garbage scowl from pt. 3 yet), Burden Hardest to Bear, Ultimate Weapon, Nightmare Planet, Dark Awakening, Face of the Ninjika, There's also another good Galvy/Rodi one on one fight but I can't remember which ep it was in - Quintesson Journal maybe.

    Plus any of the Headmasters stuff if you can use it. Birth of Double Convoy is easily my fave ep of the show.

    I agree with Sol, Dark Awakening was one of the best.
