The Ark's Last Stand

Post by Reflector » Wed Dec 19, 2001 10:13 pm

Who feels like naming for me the entire cast of Minibots that defended the Ark against Trypticon in FFOD part five? I ask because I could have sworn I saw Tailgate there, but I'm beginning to doubt my memory and can't be bothered to go check out my copy of the episode. Ghost? Anyone?

Yeah, he was there. 'Least I think he was...
Anyway, I'd like to change the subject slightly (it's my thread, dammit!). In my confusion with Tailgate, I began wondering why Hubcap ain't there. Sure, we all make fun of the little guy now and then. But let's face it, his tech spec profile is damn cool. I mean, he's a little Smokescreen. And he's way cooler than Pipes (carrot juicer?). So, where was he?

Powerglide was definitely there. That's when he delivers his "You can't do that!" when Trypticon bats away his b!tch missiles. Sheer poetry! The rest of the crew that Felafel listed (Outback, Pipes, Swerve, Tailgate, Warpath, Bumblebee, Beachcomber) was also present.

Now, if we're going to be real technical about this, why can't we say that the guy that looks like Bumblebee in this scene isn't actually Hubcap? He doesn't have any lines, he's never named at any point in the scene, and we know their toys looked disturbingly alike...

They may look alike in toy form, but there is no mistaking Bumblebee's two "horns". Hubcap never had them, and I think Bumbleebee does say something during the fight.

Hubcap's model sheet may have had horns...
