    You guys went and nominated what you felt were the top 5 moments in Transformers Animated. I went through and compiled the list the best I could (example: Omega Supreme's Reveal and Omega Supreme's Transform are the same, in my eyes at least, so they were counted together).

    The #1, #2, and #3 top nominations were separated by ONE VOTE (so one had 17 votes, the next at 16, the next 15) ... so it was pretty close. Anyways, here they are, and the descriptions. You can only vote for these 5 ... or you can just not vote. But this was decided by you guys, so I hope you all enjoy it.

    #1 Omega Supreme
    Throughout the first two seasons of Transformers Animated, the writers hinted that there was something more to the Autobots' ship that crashed in Lake Michigan, and then again on Dinobot Island. Finally, towards the end of Season Two, it was revealed that the Autobot ship was actually the decomissioned Autobot Ultimate Weapon, Omega Supreme, who is brought back online by Ratchet and Sari, and kicks some Decepticon booty before sacrificing himself to save the Earth and the other Autobots.

    FOOTNOTE: Omega Supreme falls under Megatron's control in Season 3, and at the end of Transformers Animated, rejoins the Autobots and demolishes the Lugnut Supreme clones.

    #2 Megatron's Return
    Throughout Season 1 of Transformers Animated, Professor Isaac Sumdac believes he is helping rebuild a friend of the Autobots in his lab. But truth be told, he is actually rebuilding Megatron, the leader of the Decepticon forces. At the end of Season 1, in "Megatron Rising", he finishes Megatron's new body and, with the power of Sari's Key, Megatron returns and utters one of the most popular Decepticon phrases to come about in the 25 years of Transformers history: "Decepticons, transform and rise up!" (a play on the Autobot version, "Autobots, transform and roll out!"

    #3 Team Rodimus v. Team Charr
    Season 3 of Transformers Animated premiered with the ultimate fan-wank battle. Judd Nelson, the voice of Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime from the 1986 Transformers animated movie returned to reprise the role of "Rodimus", leader of a team of Autobots consisting of Rodimus, Hot Shot, Red Alert, Brawn, and Ironhide. They fought against a group of Decepticons known as Team Charr, consisting of Strika, Cyclonus, Spittor, Blackout, and Oil Slick. The two teams fought each other to a revamped classic Transformers theme, with Team Charr eventually winning the battle.

    FOOTNOTE: While it was never explained what happened to "Team Rodimus", all characters (except Brawn) are visible in various "group shots" later in Season 3. "Team Charr" is never heard from again, except in the two-part episode "Human Error", where they are brought to life in a virtual reality created by Soundwave, walking the streets of Detroit with Megatron.

    #4 Blurr
    John Moschitta, aka the Micro Machines guy, and the original voice of Blurr from the 1986 Transformers animated movie and Season 3 of the original Transformers, reprised his role as Blurr, the fast-talking Autobot who talks as fast as he moves ... which is pretty fast. Blurr assisted the Autobots in the end of Season 2 of Transformers Animated, and discovered the identity of the Decepticon spy on Cybertron. He broke free of his "prison" with the Starscream clones (Skywarp and Thundercracker), ran across the galaxy, literally, only to be turned in to a cube by Shockwave, and incinerated by Cliffjumper. Oops.

    FOOTNOTE: We put all the Blurr moments together as "Blurr" ... because just about everyone had a Blurr moment that wasn't exactly the same as someone else's. So there you go.

    #5 The Final Battle Between Megatron & Optimus Prime
    The end of Season 3 featured a two-part episode entitled "Endgame", and in the second part, Wingblade Optimus Prime and Megatron have their final battle. In homage to the final battle between the original Optimus Prime and Megatron, both warriors find themselves badly damaged, with cracks all over their bodies, as Optimus Prime slams the Magnus Hammer down ... about 3 inches to the left of Megatron's face, before arresting him. A classic note, Megatron, after three seasons, finally remembered Optimus Prime's name. So shocking was this, Optimus Prime even commented on it.

    FOOTNOTE: This was a serious last-second addition and barely beat out some other nominations.

    HONORABLE MENTIONS: Wreckar's "I dare to be stupid!", the Optimus Prime and Soundwave guitar/keytar battle, Prowl versus Lockdown, Ratchet versus Shockwave, and Lugnut's First P.O.K.E.

    #2 was the best of this list for me. A thrilling moment that was earned and "Transform and Rise Up!" is awesome.

    I voted Team Charr vs. Team Rodimus but I regret doing that now because I prefer Omega Supreme waking up. He was awesome as he kicked everyones ass and man Bridge too close was a great episode!

    To me when i first saw the ship i knew it was omega supreme and it gave me goosebumps when he transformed. I really like the last battle between prime and megs also. I really like all 3 seasons and hated for it to end. Love all the nods to g1 and beast wars also

    I went with The Return Of Megatron. The buildup and anticipation was great.

    Megatron Rising. It was sooooo epic! And then the fight infront of Sumdac tower was some of the best action of the series, in my book. Sorry Blurr.

    Voted for Megs v Prime, but I really liked the Wasp story arc. I really felt for the little guy!

    Would have much appreciated more dinobot love too, but only not have them being such retardicons. Grimlock should have totally handed some decepticon warrior his skidplate!

    My Favoutite moments in animated are

    (1) Optimus vs Megertron final battle

    (2) Omega vs the seekers

    (3) Bumblebee findig out the blue car was Blurr

    (4) All the times Sentinal got hurt in Boot camp and on earth

    (5) Prowl vs Locdown in samuria mode

    I also enjoyed the last episode alot and I cried when Prowl sacrificed himself

    Has any body noticed Omega always says Autobots in danger i think thats cool

    I actually got a little choked up back when Omega Supreme got put back into hibernation mode. I felt really sorry for the guy, and Ratchet. Great moment in the series.

    And the first time he transformed and yelled "I am Omega Supreme!" was pretty damn bad-ass.

    Megatron's return was completley EPIC, and of the availiable choices was my top favorite. In reality, it's my third best moment from Animated, the second being the Rock Battle of OP vs. Soundwave, and my top favorite moment being anything Wreck-Gar (possibly the funniest character in the whole show, dispite his two appearances. I also will find his toy someday, no thanks to Hasbro's crappy shipping and packaging habbits in my area)

    Those are some excellent choices, I can't choose just one. So, I'll go w/ Megatron rising. My next choice would have been Omega Supreme's story.
