    • Starscream: The time has come to purge the universe of that accursed Megatron, and forever seal my destiny as the one true ruler of the Decepticons! Egomaniac Starscream: (Shoves Starscream aside) You second-rate clones aren't even worthy to breathe my exhaust fumes! (The clones transform and take off) Starscream: I must be a bigger pain in the gearshaft then I thought. Female Starscream: Well, well, well. Look who just got to the party! Starscream: Don't start with me, woman! Female Starscream: Start what? Who's starting?

    • Bulkhead: I just want them to like my work. Sari: But artists are supposed to paint what they feel. You can't worry about what other people think. Bulkhead: I'm not sure I can do that. Bumblebee; Well, I think you should listen to Sari. If you wanna paint a bunch of ugly, squiggly blotches, then who am I to tell you that it stinks? Bulkhead: You really think it stinks? Sari: (To Bumblebee) Not helping.

    • Bulkhead: (About his painting) It's called an abstract. You know, like that human artist, Picasso. Very early cubism. Bumblebee: Oh. Looks more like very early oil stain.

    • Sari Sumdac: No, don't shoot. You'll hit my dad! Bulkhead: She's right... Bumblebee: So what are we supposed to do? Fight him with snappy comebacks?!

    • Shockwave: (About Bulkhead) This Autobot is a rather unique case. According to his file, he scored higher then any Cybertronian scientist on his space bridge aptitude test, yet seems to have no other discernable skills. Megatron: I don't care if he knows his crank case from his drive shaft! All that matters is his ability to complete the space bridge.

    • Chraracter(s) Introduced: Autobots- Blurr

    • John Moschitta, Jr. reprises the role of Blurr from the original 'Transformers' series.

    • This marks the first time Megatron refers to one of the Autobots by name. In this case, it's Bulkhead.

    • According to Derrick J. Wyatt, each of Starscream's clones share the coloring of a repaint of Starscream from the original 'Transformers' series. The coward has the colors of Skywarp, the egomaniac has the colors of Thundercracker, the suck-up has the colors of Sunstorm, the liar has the colors of Ramjet, and the female Starscream clone has the colors of the Triple-Changer Overlord.
