We received a copy of Transformers Armada the Complete Series to watch and review. Here are our thoughts.
I’ve watched all of the Transformers series that have come out in the US. Prior to watching Transformers Armada I watched Transformers Robots in Disguise. Transformers Armada was a whole new kind of show where the story introduced mini-cons to the lineup as a new faction of Cybertronians. The mini-cons could work with the larger bots and power them up or serve as weapons. I remember buying a lot of those toys. Each group of mini-cons would do different things. The most important ones were the ones that turned into the Star Sabre. The mini-cons just wanted to be left alone and not used as pawns in the Autobot vs Decepticon war. They fled Cybertron and crashed on Earth where they lay dormant until some kids found and reawakened them. Unfortunately this reawakening brings the Autobots and Decepticons and their war to Earth.
It was a pretty good series overall and I glad that it has been collected into this 8 DVD set. If you are a fan of the series consider picking it up. You can pre-order Transformers Armada: The Complete Series at Amazon.com.
