Re: Transformers: Prime
I saw the next 2 episodes online with the introductions of Shockwave, Ultra Magnus, and Predaking. Really wasted no time in introducing them.
Ultra Magnus is strictly by-the-book type. He's nothing like the Sentinel Prime of Animated, but I see him as a cross between Commander William Riker and Bright Noa of Gundam.
Watching Transformers Prime is like watching these weekly TF movies, but without Michael Bay's touch. You can compare the Autobots and Humans to the Rebel Alliance and the Decepticons to the Galactic Empire. That Decepticon fortress is like the Death Star.
