    He's yelling into a tin can?
    Seriously, when Unicron is transforming and Energon Prime is in Super Mode, whenever Garry Chalk speaks, It sounds very tinny and resounding.
    Why is this?

    Valkysas was right. You're only partially right.

    No, the cartoon is horrible all across the board. Voicebox just managed to make weak source material worse with an inferior dub.

    In contrast, they managed to improve mediocre source material with a comparably ambitious dub with Cybertron.

    Energon was a bad cartoon made worse by a bad dub.

    Cybertron was a mediocre cartoon, and the dub was about the only redeeming aspect of it.

    I didn't care for the over the top accents that some/most Cybertron cartoon series transformers robots had. like thundercracker having a cowboy accent. other transformers having european accents from scotland,ireland,austrailia,england.

    I don't think I would have minded much if the international language accents were real & came from actual voice actors that lived in those countries.
    Having forced fake international accents from voice actors who don't live in those countires always sounds bad.

    I really miss the generation one 1980's & Beastwars/beastmachines days. because these voice actors had talent & large resumes in voicing other popular & well liked/known cartoon characters from elsewhere.

    That was done because the creators felt the characters were far too bland to be distinct, so they added accents to help define them.

    I am not kidding.

    Cybertorn actually corrected some of the silly shit of Galaxy Force, like the "burning justice" among other nonsense.

    Hey, to be fair, the first 13 eps or so set up some legitimately interesting plot elements, with lots of great character dynamics. The show just failed to deliver on each and every single on of them, becoming increasingly dumbed down as it went on.

    And Shockblast was awesome.

    Nothing's wrong with burning justice. When done properly.

    I'm gonna come right out and say that Mirage was awesome as well. No pun intended. He really laid some good groundwork for later characters like Lugnut.

    Ditto with the dynamic between Mirage, Snowcat, and Demolisher. Really fun henchman trio, right there.

    Granted, the show still sucks, but there were some redeeming qualities.

    At the expense of Demolishor's former characterization, and hints at a deeper personality to Tidal Wave.

    Cyclonus didn't really change much when he became Snowcat, though. He was still an enjoyable, trigger-happy loon.

    Hey i love watching that burning justice bit when it happens

    like when megatron powered up into galvatron during the gigantion arc in cybertron

    to me anyway in its way it was like i was watching the guy go super seiberytronian in a way

    and grandmaster galvatrons fight to the death with super starscream was very dbz like what with galvatrons attitude being very vegeta like already
