Magmatron has posted a summary of the events which take place in the Season 2 finale of Transformers Animated over on TFW2005. Below you will find a mirror of the screenshot he took as well as a cleaned up version of the summary. For those wanting to watch videos, he has posted two videos, without sound and with a large watermark, on YouTube, here and here.
The episode begins with Starscream's brigade attacking both the Autobots and the Decepticons, who team up to defeated them. The Decepticons then defeat the Autobots when Ratchet arrives in the Autobot ship. Activating some secret controls, the ship transforms into Omega Supreme. Megatron's decides that he needs to test the Spacebridge and throws a restrained Optimus Prime towards the portal. Prowl manages to free Primes hands just in time so that the Autobot leader can save himself. Realising that he needs more power to use to Spacebridge, Megatron decides to hook up Starscreams head and use that as a battery. The power overloads the SpaceBridge and begings to suck everything into it, starting with Megatron. Omega Supreme sacrifices himself to destroy the SpaceBridge and save everyone else. As the episode nears its end, the Autobots are seen looking towards the horizon and talking to an injured Sari. Sari looks down at her injury only to notice that instead of bleeding, she sees Cybertronian mechanics inside of her. Finally, the episode ends with Megatron drifting in space arguing with Starscreams head.
Several eBay auctions have appear for the upcoming Transformers Animated Snarl figure and, as such, with them they have bought some new images of the toy. We have added the images into the Snarl Character page over on TransformersAnimated.com and you can also view them below.
TF08.net has been updated with images of a packaged Transformers Animated Jazz, from what appears to be a Taobao Auction sellers account. The images show clear details of the front and back of the packaging, including his profile and Galatic Powers.
Motto: Cybertron is cool, but Earth rules
Function: Elite Ninja
Profile: Autobot Jazz has studied Earth culture since he first became aware of it. He loves everything about it - the movies, the music, the vehicles- and - of cause - the style. He's usually a pretty chill guy, being a cyber-ninja and all, but he can barely contain his excitement at finally getting to check out Earth and give his new vehicle mode a spin. His excitement won't make him forget his duty, however. He is a master of hand-to-hand combat, with the fastest fists on CYBERTRON.
Magmatron has posted some images and information from Transformers Animated episode 28, A Bridge Too Close - Part 1 over on TFW2005. Below you will find mirrored images as well as a cleansed summary of the information.
The episode begins with the Constructicons officially joining the Decepticons by pledging their loyalty to Megatron. The scene then shifts to focus on Starscream who is putting the finishing touches to his army of clones. Starscream has a verbal fight with the white Starscream, the liar part of his personality who is also a female, but when she calms down he starts to address all of the clones, naming them after each part of his personality.
The scene shifts again back to Megatron who we see is talking to Shockwave regarding his assignment. Shockwave informs Megatron that need an Autobot with a high knowledge of Space-Bridge technology in order to complete their reverse-engineering of the bridges. The decide that Bulkhead will be their target as he scored extremely highly when taking his Autobot exam on Space-Bridge maintenance. Megatron orders Blitzwing and Bulkheak to fetch an item from the Sumdac Tower as he announced that he will capture Bulkhead himself. Lugnut reminds him that it may not be wise to leave Professor Sumdac alone, though Megatron assures him that he has allowed for that. The mysterous high-speed blue car from Episode 21: Velocity is shown overhearing the conversation and then driving off into the city.
Back at the Autobot base, Bulkhead is drawing a portrait of Sari in the style of Picasso. Each of the Autobots give their opinions on the art, negative ones, and this causes Bulkhead to storm off, though he is soon followed by Sari and Bumblebee.
Its not long after Sari and Bumblebee catch up with Bulkhead that Megatron appears, with Isaac Sumdac strapped across his chest! Megatron goes on to easily defeat Bulkhead and Bumblebee and takes Bulkhead as his prisoner. At this point the The mysterous high-speed blue car appears, revealing himself to be the Autobot Blurr. Blurr starts talking, at high pace, and Bumblebee takes him back to the other Autobots. Blurr explains that he was sent by Sentinel Prime to investigate, and that when he called for backup after hearing of Megaron's plans, that Sentinel Prime refused, saying that they needed the troops for the defense of Cybertron. Prime tells Blurr to show him where Megatron's base is located, and orders Ratchet and Sari to complete their work repairing the Autobot ship.
Meanwhile, at the Decepticon base, Bulkhead calls out to the Constructicons but since pledging their allegiance to Megatron, they have forgotten their previous friendship with him. Megatron show Bulkhead that he has control of a Headmaster unit and threatens to attach that to Bulkhead and then use him to kill all of his friends, starting with Isaac Sumdac. Bulkhead agrees to help the Decepticons finish their work on their Space-Bridge. Bulkhead gives instructions to Isaac who think that they are wrong. This causes an argument which then leads to the Constructicons deciding that its time for an oil break. Sumdac then realised that Bulkhead is trying to sabotage the Decepticons Spacebridge and decides to go along with his instructions after all.
The scene shifts once more, this time to the Autobot ship, where Ratchet announces that the repairs are done, they just need Energy to launch it, deciding to use the Allspark fragments they have collected as fuel. When the Autobots arrive at the Decepticon base, they are confronted by Blitzwing and Lugnut, though thanks to Blurrs speed, they are easily defeated and handcuffed. However Megatron and the Constructicons then attack the Autobots.
Megatron tries to activate the Spacebridge only to find it doesn't work with Isaac smugly saying that they must have made some miscalculatons. To his horror, however, the spacebridge then opens and Megatron orders the Decepticons to move through. At this point a hole is blown in the roof of the Decepticon base and Starscream and his army of clones appearing, thanking Megatron for doing all the hardwork for them.
The words "To Be Continued" then appear.
Check back tomorrow as we will bring you another report then.
