  • I absolutely love this episode!

    This has to be my favorite episode in this series. As soon as Cheetor began to go through his Transmetal 2 changes, I was completely hooked on it. This was a very unique and almost unexpected plot twist that gave some new flavor and excitement to the series. Especially the predator-like point of view when Cheetor transformed and was on the prowl. I think it added even more of an interesting aspect to the show by giving Cheetor an almost uncontrollable animal instinct in this episode. It really illustrates the thin line between animal and machine in the Transformers' programming while in their new forms.moreless
  • Dinobot returns, but not in the way you think.

    Well, I thought this episode was quite entertaining. And it marks the return of Dinobot . . . or possible a clone, that’s open for debate in my opinion.

    Dinobot now has half of Rampage’s spark and he’s back with the preds with more of a violent a bloodthirsty personality.

    Cheetor also gets an upgrade . . . but I didn’t really care about that.

    Dinobot’s new look is cool and deadly and not even Depthcharg can take him!

    I do like this episode because of the obvious Frankenstein rip of, Rampage’s reaction to his spark being used and of course, the new Dinobot 2.moreless
  • Read the excellent summary above!

    Oh man this episode had me on the edge of my seat! Finally an episode starring Cheetor where he is at least a little more than the impetous hot head! We get to see into his character, he is more than simple surface. He has issues, conflicts, etc. I love that they are not leaving Cheetor with just the bland one sided original characterization. He is maturing, challenging authority yet still striving to protect his friends and shrugging of the inevitable injuries. Plus we get into the darkness of the new Predacon who succeeded in putting a chill down my spine!moreless
