Once Grimlock is introduced in season one, he becomes as prominent as Bee and Windblade. His personality is basically BW Megatron if Megs is nice.
The focus on Bumblebee drops off considerably in season two. He also gets his voice back. Windblade's only used a couple times. The first few episodes don't even really focus on any one character outside of Starscream and Slipstream. Bumblebee, Hotrod, and Cheetor tend to stick together, but we do see some pretty interesting combinations otherwise, like Grimlock and Arcee.
Just watched the first three episodes if series 3. Dialogue is still incredibly simple and stilted but it's just the cameos of characters looking just like they should that keeps me interested. Shockprowl will love the second episode...
I think Grimlock's really clever. How to solve the 'does he or doesn't he have limited speech/thought?' question created by the early comic/cartoon differences. Cyberverse Grimlock is the incredible hulk.
Few eps over lunch. I love 3.11 The Scientist. Love the way this riffs off Sunbow season 3. It's weird, I really dig this but have no inclination to buy the toys or get upset that it doesn't do what TF shows usually do. Who would have thought a core cast of Hot Rod, Perceptor, Whirl, Dead End and Clobber (female Lugnut) would be so cool.
