This weekend I watched Dark Awakening and The Return of Optimus Prime on my PSP, and it reminded me that I always wanted to start a discussion on this. I was in 5th grade when The Return aired, and even as a kid I was like WTF. What inconsistancies did you guys notice in that episode as a kid? The first thing that stood out like a sore thumb was how badly Prime was damaged in the cockpit in Dark Awakening (hell he was missing an eye), and in The Return he looked as shiny as he did in the movie. I know this was due to the fact that during the time of The Awakening, there were no intentions to bring Prime back, so when they wrote the episode, they had to pull a reason why he survived out of their ass....but Damn!
