Demolishor is getting some kick ass characterization. I love it.

The Omni-Cons rock, and the return of the Mini-Cons is very nice. Too bad they can't speak still. I guess teh Omni-Con upgrade is a simple voice chip...

A+ Episode. Well done.

Man Demolishor rocks...

Yeah, I've got to agree on Demolisher. And his reaching out to Kicker for help at the end was a nice touch.

Finally saw Powerlinx Ironhide. He looks............about like the toy.:\

Also, enjoyed the Star Sabre acting as a hover board.

I'm just glad that Ironhide got to use the Energon Saber instead of Kicker. I hate that kid so much.

Actually, I'd rather Kicker wield the Saber...and then use it to cleave Ironhide in twain.:D

I'd rather see Tidal Wave, or some other big guy, step on the both of em, or maybe just get eaten by Unicron.

I thought it was the best episode in the series so far. I like Demolisher a lot. Cyclonus hasn't changed. I thought the mincons could talk now, but guess not. Iron hide still sucks, doesn't deserve the Sabre. A little bit confuesed about Megatron's sword. Also why did Prime call the mincon Sonar I thought they changed his name. I hope some more characters start appearing.

Well.. as far as I was aware, the minicons will still have the same names.. Sonar, Jetstorm and Runway to form the Star Sabre. In the same way that Grindor, High Wire and Sureshock joined together to form Perceptor.. I must say that I like Perceptors components a lot better.. especially the 4 wheeler Sureshock

Demolisher does seem different.. looking for advice.. about.. whether he should stay with the Autobots or go with the Decepticons... makes ya wonder if he may stay on the Autobot side, sort of like how Dinobot or Black Arachnia switched over.
The thing about Megatrons' sword, well.. I dont' know how it would be IN him.. plus I thought it was basically the dark saber... of course I didn't see all the Armada episodes especially the last ones, so I dont' know exactly what was going on there.. damn work place.. grrrr..

Well in Armada I thought there was only the star saber, and the toys of the star saber have different names. I have a feeling that Demolisher will struggle to decide which side he's on. But the dump truck version is a decepticon. Also I wish Wheeljack was in Energon. I hope they add sometime.

Didn't they even call the sword that was found inside Megatron the "Star Saber"? :confused:
And then the Mini-Cons who form the real Star Saber show up. Oh right...

Anyway, liked the episode. And I even start to like Kicker and Ironhide. They start to grow on each other, and they're more useful than Bumblebee & Spike and especially Daniel & Wheelie...

Yeah, I wasn't real clear on that either. Hopefully, it doesn't wind up being another 'Leader-1' thing.

No, they only called it Megatron's Sword, and without access to episodes of Micron Legend we won't know if he wielded one beyond the star saber...

"This is no ordinary blade - this is the Star Saber!" - Alpha Q after he pulled the sword out of Megatron's body.

Oh sod it, I watched it at 11.30pm, exactly before I fell asleep :\

Well, the Star Saber is the sword that Megatron is known for using, so it make sense to call it that, because I doubt that Alpha-Q knows better.

And on the subject of referring to the Energon Saber team as the Air Defense Team, just because the toys say they are new characters doesn't mean that the cartoon has to portray them that way.

In a related incident, I wonder how many people know that Energon/Super Link Hot Shot is not meant to be the same character as Armada/Micron Legend Hot Shot in the Japanese dub.

Same deal here. They just changed the character to someone that the audience would have an easier time identifying with.

Maybe this "starsaber" is a fake! really waht if A-Q pulled megatrons armknife (was in his left arms after all) out, upgrading it, and calling it the starsaber when he gave it to scorpononk just for the reason of scorpononk using it to the advantage of getting the rest of the decepticons on their side? and the energonsaber is the real deal.

Maybe its all a big magic show.. or an illusion.. meant to trick all Transformers. Maybe.. its nothing but a newly created sword mirroring the Dark Sabre. Maybe its a new sword altogether. Maybe its not a sword.. maybe its Megatrons' spark on a stick. Maybe the Gold Star Sabre team is an upgraded powerlinxed star sabre where the sabre could be either good or evil depending on who has their hands on it, but at some point, they were able to divide the evil and good parts of the sword, and the star sabre stayed with the autobots, and the dark sabre lingered in megatrons body. maybe.. just maybe.. oh theres so many maybes.

Is there any site that has Episode 4 pics?

Well the toys's new name is the energon saber, so the writers might have been looking at that. Or it was must likely a stupid mistake.

Windrazor
2004-02-26, 01:57 AM
It was probably all just a big mistake. Just out of curiousity.. whatever happened to the Skyboom shield? I haven't seen the last episodes of Armada.. but did it get destroyed or something?

Umm.. the Requiem Blaster (Space Team) and Skyboom Shield (Road Assault Team) were two different sets of minicons. Or are you saying that somehow they were used together/connected along with the Star Sabre, making that 3 sets of minicons?

If he's saying what I think he's saying, it should read:

Well, Thrust and Sideways used the Shield, Requiem Blaster, and the Star Sabre to resurect Unicron

I've been watching Superlink, and it seems to me he is the same character as Micron/Armada Hot Shot. Do you have any source to back that up?
