So what's your verdict on it? It's historically been an ep that people either really like or really hate, although I've heard very little hate for it in recent years. I personally think it's almost as emotionally resonant as Code of Hero.

I could definitely see how it was an emotional episode. I did like it in the fact that we got to see another side of the "monster" Rampage.

I would say Dinobot, Rhinox, Tarantulas, Waspinator, and, yes, Inferno.

EDIT: Oh, and Megatron.

OK. Just finished The Agenda III. That. Was. Amazing! Now, a couple of comments/observations:

First of all, I laughed when Rhinox was riding with Primal and kept looking down, and then quickly back up. Afraid of heights, are we Rhinox?

Second, was that "Die cast. It's a lost art." comment by Primal a reference to the fact that the toys used to be (partially) die-cast? It sure seemed like he was talking to the audience with that comment...

All in all, it was epic. Can't wait to start S3 tomorrow!

Did you forget to breathe?

-"Decepticons...FOREVER!!!" *transforms* was my favorite scene.
-Rampage and missile...wow!!!
-Megatron's soliloquy was very powerful
-the old G1s on the floor was very well done
-as you mentioned "Die cast. It's a lost art." that line made me smile back 1998
-the music....simply amazing
-Is BW Megatron up there on your coolest characters of all time?

Glad you watched, nay, witnessed it. Hopefully nothing anyone said spoiled any of it.
Please help me ID these non-TF parts thread: #99 of approx 1000 listed (#86, #87, #89, #90, #92, #95, #97, #98 + #99 added)

As great as the Agenda was, the best part was surely Inferno's not-death.

EDIT: I'M STUPID AND FORGOT THE SPOILER TAGS

First off, maybe you should add spoiler tags considering you reveal Inferno isn't dead.

Secondly, comparing his intended death "For. The. ROYALTY! AAH HAHAHAHA" *Blows up cave to kill Cheetor and Primal* To his real death *barely manages to live through wiping out a human colony then gets accidentally blown up by Megatron* You have to kind of wish he did die in season two.

Blah, I find that overrated. In addition to not dying, he also didn't even accomplish anything with his actions. Optimus and Cheetor were just fine. Much ado about nothing. I'm perfectly content with him continuing on, and I think being killed by Megatron for no reason despite the mindless loyalty he showed him, is a pretty fitting fate for him.

But then I tend to find Inferno primarily a comical character, and don't really buy it when he tries to be serious or threatening.

Either way, I'm going to go ahead and call the ending of Agenda the best part. I do, however, also like Megatron and Ravage's confrontation in Megatron's cell, and of course "That's mighty considerate of you, Cheetor, and I am sorry too." "Sorry? For what?" "For this!"

Inferno's maneuver is also not nearly as impressive as flightless Rattrap managing to get himself on the stealth battleship Ravage's flying on, infiltrating it, and managing to blow it up and kill Ravage in the process.

That gave me a hearty chuckle when I realized they were poking fun at Hasbro. Haha.


Also, one thing that struck me as weird with those episodes is how fucking gigantic the G1 bots seem in comparison to the BW bots. I know there's a pretty big difference between an ape and a semi truck, but it almost seemed too extreme.
