    Was wondering the same thing. Easiest explanation would be that it's a animation error, as they look fine in the previous episodes.

    "Hey, uh, guys, about that evil Rodimus toy we wanted in the show? Uh, you kinda screwed up."
    "How so?"
    "Well, the base robot, the one you have in the show, is actually called Nemesis Hot Rod."
    "Eh, minor name change. Not that bad."
    "No, but here's the issue. Nemesis Hot Rod actually combines-"
    "Combines? Transformers can do that? Is that a new feature?"
    "Actually, it's been around since '85 or something. Anyways, Nemesis Hot Rod actually combines with his trailer to become-"
    "Rodimus Cron!"
    "Um, no. He becomes Rodimus Unicronus. Think you guys can incorporate that into the show now, or is it too late?"
    "We can just have Rodimus Cron show up at the end of the episode and suddenly morph into Rodimus Unicronus for no reason at all!"
    "BRILLIANT!"

    People act like rodimus cron is the first time a transformer has had a different name between toy and show. Anyone remember jetfire/skyfire or beast changer/savage-noble :p

    Even more surprising is that Megatron didn't deny it. I was expecting him to say, "He wasn't my friend," but no, he didn't say anything, which, combined with his "you've pissed me off" line, may imply that he finally has started to consider him a friend. It's amazing how well-developed Megatron is in this otherwise subpar trilogy. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if they make him a Prime (or at least some kind of leader) by the end of it.

    A typical animation error from Japanese 3D animators.

    Megatron continues to be one of the only good things about this trilogy.

    "Because I'm Megatron......and you've pissed me off"

    Oh Megs, I love you and all your sassy-assed glory

    Yep, just another mediocre episode........Love seeing Primal but was a boring episode. Hopefully, the last 2 will be better.

    So is Rodimus mutating into a new Unicron? Cause that's horrifying.

    man you were absolutely right... this episode just told fans “we only have two episodes left to finish this story” and nothing else... i guess, primal will "accidently" have the matrix in his hands and upgrade to optimal optimus in the final episode, so to finish megatronus in a reasonable way...

    btw, whats the meaning of your logo "wei jiang"?

    Thanks for the news. Wei Jiang is one of the finest producers be if transforming robot toys ever.

    Here's an example of a "powerful Prime" that they made:

    Hell, I still sometimes call him "Jawbreaker" instead of "Overbite."
