Third episode of the season.

I was a little upset they made Ultra Magnus such a prick.  Also with the Ark (pun definitely intended) they seem to be going on, I wish they would have used Hot Rod as opposed to Smokescreen.

If you haven't seen Robots in Disguise version of Ultra Magnus @goldeneyez.... he was a MAJOR pain in that series because he was upset that The Matrix chose Optimus as leader instead of him.  At one point in the show, when Optimus was fighting for his life, Magnus steals The Matrix from him and then leaves him for dead to get pounded on some more much to the delight of Megatron.

I don't think he's a prick so far in this series, just a bit militant.  But at the same time, its Michael Ironside doing the voice so being all warm and fuzzy just wouldn't sound right coming from him.

RaithManan, I've only seen an episode here & there of Robots in Disguise.  Never really was my cup of tea.  Ironically enough, I kind of liked Transformers Animated because of the homages they gave to G1.  In that version Ultra Magnus was over Optimus.  Sentinel Prime was kind of a prick in that series and was always trying to outshine Optimus.

From the way you described Magnus in Robots in Disguise, it seems like he was up there with Starscream as far as a #2 wanted to be a #1 by any means necessary.  My guess is they're setting up a conflict in this show Magnus and some of the other bots will feel like he should lead, while others will see Smoke Screen as the right choice because Optimus will choose him.  I wonder if they will make him into Sentinel Prime.  Rodimus Prime doesn't really seem to fit as he's not Hot Rod.  I can't see them making him Smokemus or Screenius Prime...

Given they made the new toy of Optimus for the Beast Hunters collection, either he stays out of the picture for a while or some big developmental swerve happens between Optimus and Smokescreen in this episode after Optimus seemingly appears dead in this new episode coming up. 

I recently saw an interview transcript last month with Peter Cullen regarding this season and he quipped with a funny line regarding Optimus's fate, "Here I go again.  Just like 27 years ago."  But he obviously wouldn't reveal what happens further down the road.  Even though it is tabbed the final season, beforehand when that announcement was made, Jeffery Combs said that there would be a 4th season.  

Given the new Transformers movie coming out next year, we'll likely see the series evolve into a newer concept as Beast Hunters may be a setup for it.  Like how Justice League went to being Justice League Unlimited or Beast Wars becoming Beast Machines.  Though I really don't view them as separate shows, I viewed them as a continuation. Margaret Loesch's past involvement with Transformers G-1 and as queen of The Hub, I'm sure she has plans for another series lined up.

Fuck that is they kill Optimus Prime AGAIN.  SO FUKKING LAME.  Alos, this is not a seperate show.  Prime and Beast Hunters are all the same show, just with an add on to the title.  I guess we shall see, but Smokescreen as a Prime is the fukking dumbest idea I have seen so far.  STPUID.

Ok, that made me smile :)

I had not realized a new season was out.  Actually thought it was cancelled.

 They up graded Optimus Prime. He now looks very similar to the version from Cybertron. This is, to me, the best Transformers show ever made. I have also heard that they are bringing in the Dinobots and the Constructicons as well.
