    Another episode of Prime where Ratchet does nothing.

    They had 26 episodes this season, and everybody got at least one episode... except Ratchet. And Ratchet's only episode last season was basically the "say no to drugs" one. I know he's the exposition but he's also a character, dude deserves some time in the spotlight.

    well look, Anti

    a character can't actually survive

    because then there would actually be a plot and character development, and those are things for writers who give a damn about their job

    regeneration spoilers
    he had development, is the thing. he didnt get as much as he merited. prime makes attempts at these things and then cuts them short. it's unfair to say that development and plot are nonexistant, as much as i'm not a fan of Prime. they just handle things (in my opinion, anyway) poorly.

    I'm being a unfair, yeah

    I'm just flabbergasted at how the writers do this sort of thing so often it becomes self-parody

    I mean, either they're so oblivious that they don't realize how ridiculous this is getting

    or they simply don't care

    and neither is good.

    other thoughts about Regeneration, if i may
    the bit about megatron raising cybertron and using it to curry favor politically seemed...entirely out of nowhere. the bits about the revolution of the decepticons and the government of cybertronians hasn't been a focus in what feels like a long time, and almost like a silly plot point?

    maybe just me.



    i'm definitely bitter about Dreadwing, he was awesome, I genuinely liked him. i like a lot of the Decepticons that get offed and dislike the autobots mostly, which annoys me.

    what

    Why did I click that spoiler before watching the episode? Ugh. Is there still room on the Fuck Prime bus?

    sorry @Schide, i'll label my spoilers. i thought the context was okay because of the totp talking about the latest ep, that was a careless mistake on my part.

    again, apologies.

    Ohnonono, that wasn't directed at you, that was me bitching at myself for clicking knowing full well it was a new Prime episode spoiler because of the context. Not your fault at all.

    Anyway, here's a picture of Moebine (not Fallen)

    And yeah, I preorder a Jet Vehicon General when they went up, though i have no idea if I'm going to actually get it. It sounds like a nice deco though.

    cool thing this episode did
    confirmed that the Vehicons have sparks and that they are in fact not drones. Autobots: killers.


    genuinely glad that the Vehicons are dudes with a shared body type, it's like the seekers/air warriors. it's neat.

    Apparently Aldi is stocking the Prime deluxe wave with 2 Vehicons in it among other things for $10, so check those if you have any near you for anyone that still needs Vehicons. Among others of that wave.

    I was disappointed, I thought there were new Moebine toys being announced or something. I always wanted to pick some of those up.

    I didn't realize that needed to be said.

    Occasionally one or two of them has actual dialogue and personable interactions with other characters.

    It's just that they're all red shirts, so there's no effort in really giving any of them a personality.

    Also, about the new episode
    Why... did you shoot Dreadwing?

    he's been an awesome lackey. Starscream has been poop from a butt since day one. Shoot HIM instead.

    I mean, Starscream is probably the most animated character in the show, but it makes complete sense to scrap him after everyhthing he's done.

    Dreadwing can't let him live, so le thim scrap the fucker and put that snotball's disruptions to rest.

    Instead, he shoots Dreadwing, for disobeying ONE order.

    Yet he allows Starscream to get away with having done that a million fucking times.

    God dammit.

    Other than that really really stupid detail, the episode was awesome, though.

    theyve been described as drones by starscream which implied they were sparkless.

    Well, the plan starscream came up with near the end of the episode probably will win them the season where as dreadwing would have used the "fight them more" strategy of attempting the defeat the autobots.

    I think that might justify the choice.

    voyager animated lugnut is... not great
    he's kind of stumpy and doesn't really articulate well beyond "hold giant hammer, look straight ahead"

    seriously, he's tiny

    Dreadwing's a great character, such a pity he's dead now. But I like Prime's Starscream, too.

    Besides, if someone wanted an Atomic Lugnut they could have mine for a lot less than $18.
