    Ya know, if the humans have tanks that big, transformers might not have to worry about protecting them.

    Fun episode. Nice tank. Decepticons still aren't transforming.

    I like how Drift pulled off a Batman by suddenly appearing in front of the command center. :lol  Gave for Fixit an unnecessary jumpstart. :lol

    After introducing a new villain every episode, it's kinda refreshing to have some old ones come back into focus. Though I do wish the characters (bad and good guys alike) would move past having one dominant personality quirk. They don't need to have dark, tragic, complicated pasts, but someone like Fixit needs more material than just stuttering.

    That tank looked awfully like a repurposed Transformer model, what with the glowy lines and bits scattered about. Half expected it to transform and boot out the Decepticons.

    I can agree with you. I feel the Cons are way too flanderized. I know it's comedy but it's a bit much.

    I just wish they didn't always have to catch the cons in the end. Whats' wrong with a few roaming around sturring up trouble in the future.

    Pretty decent episode... gotta another battle cry from Bee....another bad one, that is. :lol 

    "Time to bring the zoom and lower the boom!"

    The 2 cons that get loose are among the craziest and funniest too... It was like Quillfire and Springload's Big Adventure.... or The Search for Doradus Part 2.

    Love that Drift is back to stay, at least so it seems.... Poor Bee, he'll have to keep the peace between more bots.

    Couldn't help but think the 'tank' from the military had that TFA Shockwave feel to it... pic from our Resources for his toy.

    [​IMG]

    Seemed to be the largest tank evar!!! and definitely had that CON feel to it. :D 
    Also, it was faring very well against the Autobot weapons, at least until Drift started hacking away at it... then things finally started to go haywire.... very suspicious.

    Stays away from the front page. LOL

    Doradius should be a lucky draw gold Metroplex in a custom box.

    Like when Waspinator "won" the Beastwars?

    Yeah, I kinda liked Springload in his first appearance, he came off a little less like able in this ep. (Maybe that was the point, I remember somebody arguing he wasn't very dangerous last time)

    And take the spotlight away from Steel Jaw? Are you mad? ;)  :lol 

    I thought I saw a clip of Steel Jaw speaking with a few of the Decepticons that have already been introduced. Like
    Kickback
    and Bisk.

    What a shame that the two decapods (Bisk and Clampdown) never met each other.

    Also, Bisk is a lobster so he should be immortal.

    Doradus is far more interesting than the 13 Primes stuff.

    Guess which one Hasbro is responsible for.

    I know they didn't but when they were advertising the show (before it aired in US and Canada) I said "I thought" I saw a clip where Steel jaw was speaking to a group of Decepticons and I thought I saw the back of Bisk's head. I am also aware that I could be mistaken or it was somehow a clip from season 2. (most likely the former)

    I have no idea what you might be thinking of. It would be cool if in the 2nd season all the Season 1 Cons banded together.

    Good ep. 7/10.

    It was great at the beginning to see Hank again - an actually likeable kid character. Russell actually wasn't all that bad in this ep either though. It's cool that Drift and his Minicons are staying now and it was nice to see the former loosen up a little and in the end actually show concern for Jetstorm. His 1st appearance in the ep where he's just standing next to an unaware Fix It was really funny.

    It was fun seeing Springload and Quill team-up, as they're two of the best Decepticons. However, Springload - while still very entertaining - wasn't as good as in his debut episode. His schtick is slow but surely running its course so I hope he isn't used except for maybe 1 or 2 more episodes or if Doraus is real and they do a story arc about it.
