Energon me!

Transformers, only one of my absolute favorite cartoons of all time is not really one cartoon but over the years it has seen many different remakes. Energon is one of the more recent series spawned by Transformers and it originally aired in 2004. It picks up where the previous series Armada left off after the destruction of Unicron 10 years before.

The beginning of the season is a bit confusing as both the Autobots and Decepticons are working together to rebuild Cybertron which was previously destroyed. This whole concept seems odd to me but don't worry its short lived. Another strange twist is in Energon the transformers can connect together to make bigger transformers... remind you of anything? *cough* Voltron *cough*. Heh.

Some familiar faces are still there, others not, others reappear later. Optimus Prime is still around but Megatron is gone, however Megatron shows his ugly face later on. A little now you see it now you don't routine but it is nice to see familiar faces in a series airing so many years after the original. 52 episodes and seven dvds in all I can't say I've honestly seen them all yet as this will keep me busy practically all winter but Transformers Energon : The Ultimate Collection is the perfect gift solution as seven dvds will keep the kids busy for quite some time. Fans of the original series will also like seeing their favorite characters slightly reinvented. I'm currently about five episodes in and thus far I'm actually pleased with the animation and the character building. Ironically the fifth episode is where you learn Megatron is still possibly alive. So I'm anxious to see what happens next as I know he comes back but how?

Ironically this sounds wrong, but Energon reminds me of one story Connor's dad told me. They had a Voltron toy growing up and after their "battles" they would disconnect the cats and throw them at each other. Though I love the building bigger bots from smaller bots I really hope Connor never reads this post. Shh guys never give your kids that idea.. but can you imagine? Heh.

Bumblebee! I didn't learn about transformers until I bought my first car... A beat-up old canary yellow beetle. Guys would come and fuss over my car and I'd have no idea why. It was my boyfriend who finally introduced me to the series, and ever since then I've been a fan. I'd love to share this one with my nephew.

My favorite transformer(s) were always the Dinobots. They were so stupid, but the were robots. I alos liked Blaster, he was the only one my parents would buy for me when I was a kid. I had the Rhinocerous tape cartridge to go with him too... that was awesome. He always kicked the crap out of my GI Joes and Musclemen in their lego forts. GO AUTOBOTS! Great giveaway, I miss my youth :(
