Then, the news got even better! There was going to be a transformers animated movie!
Introducing: Transformers the animated wanton slaughter of all of your toys
|The Death of Brawn...Why, Primus, Why???|
Let's just say that we really didn't need the scene to establish the Decepticons as cruel and merciless.
|these are Sharkticons; now jump!|
I'm not saying season 3 didn't have some episodes I really liked..."Only Human" is still a favorite, but the fan reaction that led Hasbro to resurrect Optimus in the last episodes of season 3 never really went away, and the show never really came back. we got a little chunk of season 4, and then silence (in the US) until BEAST WARS.
For me, the shine was off that armored exoskeleton until the 2007 movie came out. I guess you could say it re-ignited my Spark. As loud and needless as some of the live action movie was, it did remind me what I liked about the original series...and Optimus Prime was there for me all over again.
