In a continuing effort to enjoy the latest Transformer cartoon, titled 'Cybertron', I have ordered a few episodes in the original japanese from the wasteland that is ebay. Having just finished watching episode #31 in english, I feel confident in my decision to keep trying with this series. Even in english, the episode titled 'Cybertron' (like the series) is perhaps the most revealing, pivotal, well done and mature episode of the series to date.
Megatron actually shatters to a million shards after his final battle with Prime, and all of cybertron undergoes a spectacular transformation sequence to become the embodiment of Primus, the creator. I swear that some scenes of the planet transformation were blocked identically to the movie, when Unicron
reveals his true form to Leonard Nimoy
. I'm glad that I made it this far in the series, because this one episode has made all the insipid, childish parts well worth the wait.
This vintage special comes from Jellis - The Executive Coloring Book
. I totally want a copy.
