  • A cool series, where I first hopped aboard the Transformers series train.

    I have first seen this series about 7 years ago and I wan't into it, but a little later, I began to gain interest in early 2002. Then during the spring, I gained a lot of interest. I find this series fun to watch. I watched episodes right around when it ended in America and I liked it alot like Digimon. This is the first Transformers series I liked. It had a bunch of histerical moments like the tongue statue sticking its tougng at Megatron, Sky-Bye getting blown up, getting electrocuted, and the predacons getting flattened a couple of times. I never knew about the earlier Transformers series, but I will always watch some RID episodes sometimes. The characters arrangements were amazing. If only the future TF series' characters have the names from the characters in this series. Still a good series, even if it only lasted for one season and a lot of the names weren't used in future series.moreless
  • This Show had its ups and downs.

    Personally i liked some of the latter episodes with Ultra Magnus. One of the things that this show was able to do well was make it so Ultra Magnus and Optimus Prime were somewhat rivals similar to Goku and Vegeta From DBZ. Furthermore Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus fused together in this show with the power of the matrix into Omega Prime. However this show did not have a very extensive plot, there was nothing that made a person want to watch more of the show. Maybe if there was a bit more interesting plot details as well as a character development this show could have done well, but this wasn't completely horrible.moreless
  • A Japenese import that gives good mileage.

    A Japenese import that gives good mileage. Althought this series pays no attention to previous Transformers continuity it was a very good show. I beleive it to be much better than the present incarnations that have been run on Cartoon Network the past few years. This show took Transfomers back to its roots by turning the Autobots, key word there auto, back into vehicles and yes Optimus was a firetruck but nothing is perfect. They also did a great job paying homage to G1 by the use of naming some of the characters after them and there were some, the Combaticons for instance, who basically had repaints of themselves in this incarnation. The show was whitty, action filled, quick moving and most of all interesting.moreless

  • This show just appeared at wrong place at wrong time.It definetely deserves a second chance.

    I watched Car Robots (Japanese version of RID) and it was preety cool.Characters were OK ,stories are preety poor comparing with G1 or Beast Wars but they are funny and amusing.I'm preety dissapointed with American translation...because every time when they didn't knew what Japanese character said they puted some preety lame lines...I was always annoyed when Koji no matter what subject was in that moment ,he will always whine about his dad... for instance ,Autobots defeated Predacons ,Koji came and asked Optimus if he is OK ,Optimus answered that he is fine ,and then Koji ,litterally suddenly asked 'By the way ,Optimus ,when will you save my dad?'and in Car Robots ,Yuki was actually reporting what did exactly Predacons stolen...Most of lines in RID were preety confusing unlike CR ,like in Bullet Train To The Rescue ,we only saw Koji in the world's fastest train ,without explanation ,how did he get there ,was he with somebody...but in CR in the beginning he explained that his dad's friend invited him...though we never saw that friend ,that's completely understandable explanation unlike the one in RID...if there was one ,anyway....Optimus had that same problem...every time when they didn't knew what did Fire Convoy said ,Optimus was getting so philosophical with lines about how he always protect Earth or someday they will win ,or I don't know ,you get the idea ,probably...

    The other much more important thing about this show was the one I described in summary...this show appeared just during 9/11 crisis ,so it was mangled with censorships.Now after 5 years ,I think it deserves a proper second run ,with all episodes without censorship.
