Because this two-parter needs more love.
If you agree, post your reasons why.
What happens if I don't agree?
There are several plot points that remain unexplained.
1. Sari. EVERYTHING ABOUT SARI! Where did she come from? Who put her there? Why is her protoform so small?!
2. The Magnus situation. Will Ultra Magnus live? If he dies, who gets it, Optimus? Sentinel? Rodimus? Ratchet?
3. Remaining Starscream clones. What happened to the remaining Starscream clones? We saw Susan for a second in Endgame, then she just flew away and we never saw her again.
4. Wreck-Gar, Constructicons. What about them? They were brought to life by Allspark Shards, and when Prowl and Jazz were pulling the Allspark shards from Earth together, what happened to the AllSpark shards that were keeping them alive?
5. Blackarachnia/Waspinator. What happened to them? What about the "Maximals?" Are they mere cameos or something more?
There's more that I could name, but that's all I can think of at the moment.
I agree with Spoon, and my reason is BECAUSE I JUST SAID SO.
Damn you Sage! Now I have to believe that Wreck Gar is dead. LOL
I'm the cruelest.
No, Good Morning, you Aussie.
Mere cameos. Nothing more. I don't get why so many people want them to be more and to saturate Animated with Beast Wars.
The Lugnut Supreme's were brought online with All-Spark shards, too, and their's didn't get swiped. I'd say they are all still alive. Well, make that Wreck-Gar and Scrapper are DEFINITELY still alive. I have a theory that the All-Spark fragments that came out of the water were pulled from the scrap of Dirtboss and Mixmaster, who may have already been dead.
Well personally I loved it!!
I understand some people feeling a bit "short changed" as many of the secondary characters were left in Limbo (clones, Wreak Gar etc) but that is exactly what they were SECONDARY characters. It's a testament to the show that people care that much about them. I don't think you need to completely tie up every lose end in a series anyway. It leaves room for a possible continuation in some shape or form in the future.
I think the most important part is that all the main characters got their due. It concluded the main story of the "rag tag" group of Autobots stuck on earth nicely.
Prime established that he is a hero and not an Elite Guard washout, proving Magnus's initial instincts about him correct (flashback part one). He overcame his own guilt about Elita one and became the true Magnus elect.
Ratchet, faced and resolved his biggest regrets with the revival of Omega Supreme and especially Arcee. These two seemed the main reason he had given up and accepted a position "beneath" a medic of his ability with a maintenance crew. It showed him that even the worst mistakes can be put right.
By taking down Shockwave, BB and Bulkhead had some closure and payback for being forced out of the Elite Guard and demonstrated their courage and ability. Bulkhead throughout season two and three demonstrated his importance in Space Bridge technology too.
I especially liked the flashback showing how Prowl joined the team (in part one). This cleared up a big question mark for me, as he never really seemed to fit with the others. He was a far too accomplished fighter to be part of a maintenance crew. He found his inner spark and through that his path to enlightenment.
My only gripe would be that Sari's origin wasn't fully explained and that we weren't given quite enough time to accept and come to terms with Prowls sacrifice .
On the whole it was great, just like the rest of the series. Well written, thoughtful, funny, moving, with (gasp) actual character development and growth. I miss it already !!
There's some things I wish were expanded upon, but in the grand scheme I am quite satisfied with the episode as it is. It's a strong finale in its own right, whether intended t o finish a season or a series.
I feel that this was a good Season 3 ending, but not a Series ending.
they have to continue the series or make a sequel series following the "Transformers:Animated" series.
its just that they left so much info out.....
however the ending was not half bad. it was quite entertaining
I thought it was a good ending. It was a good way to close out the series.
Allspark formers arent dead, for a simple reasons. They have sparks. Starscream died because the shard was all that made him live.
too many loose ends IMO, need more.
I think it ended the best TF series ever very well. Here's hoping for a follow up either thru a season 4, straight to dvd movie or comics
I loved it. Loved it. Sad it's over, but I loved it.
I though it was lacking. It felt rushed. I'd also love to know more about Sari, what happened to Ultra Magnus and where the rest of the Decpticons are.
None of that needed explaining.
