    Well, yeah. I mean the replaceable arm weapons, the poncho, the working for the highest bidder but keeping his word attitude... It was never any doubt that Lockdown was based on Death\'s Head. Even his face is similar, sans horns.
    Why does everyone want to kill Beachcomber? As he would say, \'Not cool, man! Extremely not cool!\' :D 
    No word on the Constructicon episode? Who would have been the other new characters forming Devastator with the old ones?

    Agreed. And it was the original basis for G1, too. And how the G1 toys were planned out before the show even started.

    I really wanted them to do an Omega Supreme toy.  Shame they never did one.  I bet if they did another season, we could\'ve seen one and seen the unreleased ones that were shown on the back cards of the last wave of toys.  They should release those.

    Someone I know brought up the point that when writers refer to someone's journey ending, it usually means they're going to be killed off. Since Marty apparently referred to Sari in that manner, it brings up the fear that she would have died at some point in the finale.

    The next time he shows up at a convention, can someone please clarify that with him?

    Uh, what? Ending someone's journey usually means concluding their character arc. Sometimes a character arc ends with said character dying, but not always. I seriously doubt Sari would've died in the finale.

    I really doubt she would have died as well. It just so happens that this friend of mine has recently read a lot of fiction where the protagonist does die in the end, for one reason or other.

    EDIT: I think I managed to talk some sense into them. It was just a bout of paranoia as a result of reading too many FNAF novels.

    Yeah no. Be I'd rather not have the memory of Animated tarnished by boring writers and Ramondelli shit smears that claim to be art.

    Well, hopefully someone cared enough to record it for the fans that got screwed out of experiencing this.

    "Spare a thought also for Beachcomber – the team wanted to have him killed off in Season 3, in a cut scene. He’d have died in Season 4 instead, and if that got cut, he’d have died in Season 5."

    Wow, get fucked Beachcomber.

    That's the Derrick J Wyatt influence talking. He absolutely hates Beachcomber.

    According to the Almanacs, his ship was named the Death's Head.

    But why though, what did Beachcomber do? When did he do anything (other than the golden lagoon)? :p  I'm not a big fan of Beachcomber either, but I just don't think about him much, he's just a hippy stoner leave him alone Derrick.

    You don't want to know some of the other things Wyatt thinks sometimes... and don't go searching around either.

    So all this time they weren't playing coy about sari's origins in case season 4 got made.
    No, they really had no idea what her deal was. :lolol 

    I do think there's a good chance of a comic continuation but not for a long while.

    Was it specified if it was other named Decepticons (Blitzwing, Shockwave, etc.) that died in the reactor with Lugnut or just unnamed generics?

    It might've been intended for all of them to bite the dust, given the statement that they wanted to make Triple Changer Megatron such a huge threat in his own right that he didn't need minions anymore.
