Transformers: Heroes [Import]
The Earth is the battleground in an age-old struggle for control over the universe. Ordinary looking planes, cars, and vehicles suddenly transform into mighty robots that wage war with the advanced armory of super technology. It's the Decepticons against the Autobots in a battle for the world's energy supply. With the help of human allies, the Autobots just might be able to keep control away from the power-hungry Decepticons. Featuring episode, "Rebirth 1-3," The Decepticons attack Autobot City in an attempt to steal the key to the plasma chamber on Cybertron. They succeed and Punch is badly damaged. The Decepticons (led by Cyclonus), ten Autobots (led by Hot Rod), and the key end up on the planet Nebulos.

Our story is about a planet called Nebulos, in which the society is fighting back against their evil rulers, "The Hive." The Hive control all the machinery and basically do their dirtywork. Several autobots crash-land on the planet after being pursued by the decepticons. The autobots had the "key to the plasma energy chamber" which was what the Transformers were forged from (or maybe it was just the autobots?). Once the decepticons find them on the planet, both robotic factions take sides and engage in combat. Optimus Prime discovers this because of Alpha Trion (who merged with Vector Sigma, recall), who says that Vector Sigma allowed Galvatron to know of the key. New battles are fought, new Transformers are introduced, and the decepticons are shot halfway across the galaxy while Cybertron hits another Golden Age.
Plotwise, it's ok, but most of the episodes spend time introducing the new characters and this planet that they're on.Read more ›
Actually, come to think of it, I'm glad they didn't extend the series to a longer seasonal run. By season 3, Transformers had gone as far as it could. While it delved further into the mythology of the Transformers, the charm (and more importantly, the CHARACTERS) the made the series so excellent to begin with are practically nonexistant with the exception of a key few characters. So, is this three parter excellent with the return of Optimus Prime? While Optimus does have a decent role in the final installment, it's still an episode that seems jampacked with new characters (obviously because of the new toys that were out). Hot Rod's back to his old self like the movie and while that it appropriate given Optimus's return, it feels so awkward and out of place. Also, I was disturbed by the Arcee/Daniel relationship in the movie... seriously, a little kid loving an Autobot?? How could that work?Read more ›
Autobot City is being attacked by Decepticons, the Decep Clones stole the key to the Plasma Energy Chamber leaving Punch badly damaged. The Decepticons retreated to Cybertron to open the Plasma Energy Chamber,and destroy some Autobots along with it. Few of the Autobots took the key back from Scourge and was launched to another planet called Nebulos. A little while after the Decepticons followed the Autobots, where they found them captured by the natives of Nebulos. So, the Decepticons captured half of the Autobots to find out the whereabouts of the key.
In order for the Autobots to save their comrades, they have to partner up with Nebulans to become Headmasters and Targetmasters. While all that is going on, Optimus Prime managed to go to Vector Sigma and found out the Autobots whereabouts also the deadly secret of plasma energy. So, Optimus used another shuttle to get key and his Autobots. By the time he got to Nebulos, the Autobots have already lost the key to the Decep Head & Targetmasters. Prime and the Auto Head & Targetmasters went to retrieve the key from them again, but finds a big surprise waiting to surface and show its ugly head "Scorponok".
Scorponok and the Decepticons fled Nebulos and went back to Cybertron. Optimus and the Autobots followed them back, but Spike insisted that him and Cerebros should stay. The Decepticons made it with the key and deactivated every Autobot on Cybertron, Prime and the others had got there too late. So they tried to find the Galvatron and stop but that plan failed. Galvatron has already activated the Plasma Energy Chamber, but he also failed when Spike and Cerebros arrived with "Fortress Maximus" and saved the entire universe from being destroyed.
