    Wow.....
    I keep hoping this will get better. This will pay off....
    But it just doesn't, does it.

    I mean, I was hoping this series would be full of fun "gattai" style battles, with our favorite characters and high stakes....

    But I can't even tell what the stakes are anymore.... What anyone's real motivations are....
    If they wanted to prevent this from happening, why didn't prime let windblade sniper the enigma to begin with?
    And that's just the first plot hole that comes to my mind. I could spend an hour nit picking more.
    But worse than the writing, this series isn't fun!!!! Even the Bay movies have SOME fun to them. (Though they're just as headache inducing as this series, if not more so...)
    This just isn't giving us any of what we want, what we hoped for, what seemed promised.....
    Ugh

    I'll bet a brand new Titans Return Fortress Maximus that Windblade gets resurrected in some stupid way before this bullshit series is over.

    They teased a Super Combiner made up of FOUR OTHER COMBINERS and the best they could deliver was a giant Starscream? *fart noises*

    The saddest thing is that it's a wasted opportunity, as far as a modern day G1 story, I would much prefer to see a sequel to last year's Transformers Devastation.

    We know that the writing team have talent from previous projects they worked on, but whether it's down to the animation failing to meet expectations or the 5 minute episodic nature that's done it, the final product is disappointing and frustrating to say the least.

    Well, at least Windblade's dead.

    That's about the only positive thing I can say about this episode, apart from Starscream's floating missile boobs.

    Is it just me, or did the G1 episode "B.O.T." have a better plot than this? Now that I think of it, B.O.T. had a better "combiner war" than this too...

    (For those of you that haven't seen G1, look up 'worst transformers episode ever' on TFWiki)

    At least Transformers didn't have that hospital scene...

    That was as enjoyable to watch as most other season three episodes. It only stands out as having a large number of animation errors. Now Energon had a lot of painfully boring episodes.

    Oh hey Starscream with god-like power.... Never Seen that before...Galaxy Force

    Jesus Christ EVERYTHING about this show is bad. The ideas, the writing, and holy hell the acting is terrible. The only solace I take is that this nightmare is short-lived.

    HOLY SHIT, PEOPLE TURNED ON THIS QUICK! I mean, me and a good amount of others were hating on the show since the beginning, but there was always at least a decent amount of people on the show's side. But now, I haven't seen a single positive or even neutral comment about this episode yet!

    This isn't canon... Right? Just a bunch of people got together and made some fanfic... Nothing to see here, go about your business, pretend this never happened....

    I was one of those supporters, I had hope. But I will admit, I was VERY wrong about this.

    I've said it one and I'll say it again if Hasbro wanted to advertise Combiner Wars they should have made DLC for Devastation. You could almost have the same story as now but remove all the unnecessary items like Maxima, Fartscream (I got nothing), and make combiners playable I can guarantee you fans would be pleased. In fact it's surprising they didn't make DLC considering the teaser of Optimus Maximus at the end with guest appearances of Defensor and Superion.

    I am actually enjoying the akira-esque absurdity of this odd little series, but on the whole this is the strangest thing I've watched pertaining to the Transformers franchise.

    I don't know what will happen in the next 5 minutes, but when it's all over I'm going to need a beer and an Xanax just to feel right again.

    Alright, just watched it.

    So Starscream knows everything and is everything because he just received the Quickening and he thinks there can be only 1...

    ... but after that- WTH did I just watch?
