Actually it’s not that hard to figure out why Swindle took the rest of their parts to the dump. Having sold their weapons for cash, he was simply selling the rest of them as scrap metal.


So reversing a speech synthesizer turns it into a listening naturalizer?

Haha, I really enjoyed this review. As soon as I saw this was the episode you’d be looking at next, I’d been really looking forward to it. There’s a bunch of things that were wrong with this episode in particular that I was hoping you’d comment on, like the oddly inconsistent animation. There are tonnes of stupid, annoying errors and flubs all over the place–and things like Bumblebee somehow unable to break through a thin wooden door, which is just ridiculous. That and the Autobots constantly shrinking and growing at a moment’s notice, like three 15-ft-tall robots somehow managing to… Read more »

This is one of the few episodes I remember with real clarity.
I had enjoyed the introduction of Bruticus and the idea that one of the combiners would sell off the organs of his brothers for Earth currency (something that he should consider WORTHLESS) is fucking hilarious.

This episode stuck with me.

Loved the review, the episode itself of course, very disappointing. Another thing that got me, which I’m shocked you didn’t pick up on, was another problem the series had: Size and scale. Isn’t it odd how Bumblebee and Gears were apparently smaller than the human sized door they tried to break through when pursuing BOT? One other thing that nags at me this past 30 years: What could Swindle possible sell the parts of his comrades in exchange for? I doubt human money holds any allure. Energon? Energy in general?

I used to watch this show religiously, and I do not recall this episode. Either I blocked it out, or the UHF stations we had didn’t buy all the episodes.


Love me some Combaticons!


Incidentally, in one of the comics, those three idiots did build another B.O.T.

Twilight Man

“Shopping At The Dark Bazaar”
A comic book that was sold with a more “advanced” version of Bruticus.
Now adults, the “Terrible Trio” are now scientists trying to reveal B.O.T. II.
The Combaticons show up, and think B.O.T. is actually a spy.
This stupid comic also has El Presidente show up again, as well as cameos from other human bad guys like Lord Chumley, and Ali the Middle East terrorist.


I have fond memories of this episode but at the same time I understand all the reasons why it deserves a real brow beating. It’s really, REALLY bad.

Le Messor

“Scramble city”
… so that’s the name for that!
To this day, I’ve got a mismatched combiner.
