ha....my busted logic for the insecticons:

killing a lion running around with a gun is a hell of alot easier than killing a lion on top of you..

...other than that..Im gonna go with Gog's theory...


Plus...pretty sure that the starscream that was yelling in pain at the end was the original...screaming out from the pain of the clone getting killed in the face..

Armada reminded me of Animated so much cause of Starscream's little plan.

I have not listened in yet so idk what your guy's take on this but I am saddened that the Insecticons pretty much turned into cannon fodder and didn't do a whole lot in the episode except look cool with that giant swarm of them and probably give Vangelus a reason to army build them!

Phew! I was worrying for some time that you'd skip over Grill for being a clipshow and all.

Guys. The Insecticon didn't crash into a tree. Watch it in slow mo. One of them panicked because it saw the tree and wrecked into his buddy. The tree never even came close to them.

I likened it to the tie fighters in Empire Strikes Back, but it was more the one pilot in a New Hope panicking when he saw the falcon and crashing into his friend.

That doesn't explain the underpowered insecticon drones, but that tree never made contact with the insecticon.

That's even WORSE. At least if they were flying quickly they could get confused by an unknown envornment. Just running into each other is even more inexcusable.

Heheh. From the way the shot was edited, we see the action from their point of view. He is shooting at Arcee and you see the shadow of the tree coming up fast, so he didn't realize it was coming because their aim is based on the horn on their head, so they have to look down if they intend to shoot down. Then he looks up and brakes to avoid the tree, but his buddy rear-ends him.

Thanks to you, Prime Botannica no longer exists.

Who's side are you on exactly, huh buddy?

Well after hearing that suggestion in the podcast, I almost didn't want to throw off that possibility by bringing this up.

However, it's still possible that any "normal" tree would not have generated that kind of reaction by the insecticon, but when he realized that it was Botanica, he panicked a lot more, thus leading to his ultimate demise.

30 minute mark right now, but I'll say that I'm personally fine with the whole Airachnid/Insecticon thing. Airachnid's fate was already foreshadowed in Grill and well, Law of Inverse Ninja.

Also, I'm wondering if the reason Airachnid's able to control the Insecticons was due to her experiments during the war. Maybe she snuck in fail safes or their cerebral algorithms or whatever were based on hers, thus they were "of the same mind".
