One day, I was bored, and wanted to see what the G1 series was like. So I watched these eps in the following order. 1-Fire in the Sky 2-Fire on the Mountain 3-Transport to Oblivion 4-A Plague of Insecticons 5-The Insecticon Syndrome. 6-Triple Takeover. The 6th ep I watched brings us to this topic. Here's what happens: -Starscream leads Megatron in a sewer, and both of them get frozen, because Starscream and Megatron get "Starscream'd" by Astrotrain and Blitzwing. -Astrotrain conquers a Train station while Blitzwing captures a football stadium. Astrotrain reconfigures a bunch of trains to follow his command. He then commands the trains to harvest energon by collecting energy lines. Blitzwing seeks tactical advice from, of all people, a football coach. He then orders the Constructicons to build a "Zone Defense" which is some kind of Incomprehensible maze or something like that. Then fires "Long Bombs" into the city...And somehow gives himself shitloads of points. -Prowl, Tracks, Bluestreak, and Skids apparently become trapped in the "Zone Defense" causing Blitzwing to hand them their skidplates. But with the help of Powerglide, Hoist and Smokescreen save their skidplates. With Blitzwing crashing into Scrapper in the process. -The Seekers then arrive at the train station to check on Astrotrain, who is eager to show them what his troops can do. But apparently, the trains are tangled trying to harvest energon, causing the the seekers to laugh their skidplates off. When one of the trains finally break free, he urges it to collect more energon, it apparently crashes on a water main. The resulting flood frees Screamer and Megs. Who then search for the traitorous triple-changers. -Prime, Ironhide, and Spike spotted the 'cons. Only for them to be distracted by the water main flooding the city. Prime then rescues Spike and handing him to Powerglide to take him to safety. While Trailbreaker uses his force fields to push the water back, Ironhide and Prime get to the station to seal the main. Encountering Screamer and Megs. Megs leaves to put the triple-changers in their place, while the Seekers place their bets. Optimus, however, just sits back and waits. -Blitzwing now has a thousand-something points and the Constructicons demand a share of the power he promised. Blitzwing then becomes an asshole and tells them to build a bridge and jump off it. This pisses the Constructicons off and they form into Devastator. Then the water reaches the stadium, depositing Astrotrain...god I'll just stop there. I liked the episode because of the realization that Astrotrain sounds like King Zarkon. I'm sorry for summarizing the episode. It wasn't my intent. I only wanted to explain how campy it is.
