"I really don't know what to say, other than this Armada garbage really sucks. I started to follow the Transformers mythos in 1984, and have enjoyed every series I've come apon. Be it the original Transformers, Scramble City, Head Masters, Master Force, Victory, Zone, Beast Wars and Beast Machines. Well, that's not the case with this Armada crap. I don't know where to begin a list of everything that's wrong with this abomination. Mixing cell animation with CGI animation and effects is a bad start and garantees that "cheap aesthetic" that we keep seeing more and more of these days. The characters are annoying at best (those that have some sort of hint of a personality anyway)and the writing is embarassingly bad. As some other reviewer has stated, the human characters in this crap fest are particulally revolting. There's actually this fat kid in the group who goes on about being hungry all the time. The only lines he ever says during an episode are "I'm SOOO hungry" or "Who wants waffles" or something else to that effect. Yes people, the writing is THAT BAD. Bland writing and bland voice acting, combined with repetitive CGI polluted animation and bad techno music would be the only words that come to mind if I were to describe this pathetic incarnation of my beloved Transformers. I'm giving this Rhino release 1 star, because at least the disc itself played correctly on my DVD player.Yuck!"

"this series is stupid,the only good episodes were at the end of the series,there's a season1 box set that's supposed to be released later on this year I suggest that the older fans (the ones who like gen1) pick up the box sets and not these single discs,if you have a two year old and want a "baby sitter" then this is the disc to get,but it's not for the serious transfan...."
