Transformers Review: Decepticon Island Part 1

Bumblebee RIDReunited and it feel so good.  Well, at least it should.  Here is our review of the 38 episode of Transformers: Robots in Disguise, entitled Decepticon Island Part 1.  The two teams are back together, althro there never seemed to be a real reason to separate them.  Let’s see how it works out.

 

==Potshots==

Optimus should NOT be taking orders from Bumblebee.

Drift already has his own team Grim’.

You!

INTRO

Ratchet?  Yes.  A mini-con with him?  Eh.

I question that too Strongarm.

You’d better fix-it, err… him.

BREAK

Let him lead ‘Bee.  He’s the best ever at it.

BREAK

Never ask what could possibly go wrong.

Enough with this teamie business.

Talk about outnumbered.

==Potshots==

It took awhile but we are finally getting good episodes.  However, I do not like the leadership quandary between Bee and Optimus.  If you have Optimus, he leads.  Period.  End of discussion.  For many years I would love to see a one-shot Bumblebus Prime figure, but seeing a reduced one week after week is painful.

It was nice to see Ratchet, but I do not dig that voice.  Ratchet needs to have the voice of a seasoned medic..this wasn’t it.  Also, we have way way way too many mini-cons around,

I think we see with this episode is that this season should have had different combinations of 3-4 robot strike teams, and use those differences to maximize storytelling.  As it was, we had too much of the Bee team that really was a b-team, and not enough of the Prime team.

Definitely one of the better episodes of this series, but there should be no leadership dispute.  It was fine to suggest a leadership sharing between Optimus and Bumblebee in the last episode of the series, as seen on the last episode of the last season, btu it just does not work in practice.  3.5 snowflakes out of 5.

Quoth the penguin…evermore.
