Kup:The Old Warhorse

In 1986, or the year 2005 depending on how you view the world of the Transformers, we are introduced to a whole crop of new Autobots and Decepticons. One who stands out in mind is the cranky old solider, Kup,






the bitter old war vet who has been in more conflicts and battles than any other members of the Autobots.

Kup is either, A: a mighty warrior, B: a coward or C: a liar. On many occasions Kup tells a story that can affect the outcome of a battle but has no true leadership expertise.

A seasoned war vet should bring more than his fair share of “on the job” training lessons.Yet he plays second fiddle next to the soon to be choose one, Hotrod.

Maybe Kup likes being the old solider? Not being the leader does have its benefits. It is also possible that Kup’s leadership qualities were just merely overshadowed and so was sent to Earth to be a bone-fide crossing guard instead.

Is it possible that Kup chooses not to lead and rather just fight the good fight?

Transformers: Knowing is half the battle


Through out the 80’s many beloved animated toy icons told us right from wrong. GI Joe, He-man and a slew of other cartoon classics have always given advice to kids.

So it should come as no surprise that the world of beings that are more than meets the eyes would tell us what to do as well. These PSAs are nothing short of super creepy and sometimes border criminal activity.

Bumblebee talks about the dangers of running away.

Tracks talks about why its wrong to steal cars!

(yes some kid almost car jacks Tracks)

Red Alert talks about being seen at night while riding on a bike.

(Red Alert almost kills these kids on their bikes)

Seaspray talks about making sure if you’re on a boat you must always wear a life jacket!

Powerglide talks about equal opportunity.

No matter what you think about these PSAs. They hit a common nerve that is so typical in many lives of kids even today.

“Till all are one”

Transformers:Scramble City

With the release of the Transformers animated movie being held until 1990, The Japanese market needed a filler show to bridge the gap between season two and season three of the Transformers cartoon series.

This show would introduce characters that only debut in the animated film. Ultra Magnus and many of the films co-stars needed to be seen as soon as possible as well as add them into the mythos of the Universe of the Transformers.

The show starts off with a recap of the Transformers coming to Earth. It quickly covers the story of Devastator as well, and then gets right into the action.

The Autobots are shown in the middle of constructing the powerful “Scramble City,” Metroplex for the G1 purist. Its construction is being held by Ultra Magnus. The Decepticons send out Soundwave’s minions Laserbeak, ravage and ratbat to see what the autobots are doing and soon learn of the build. Megatron sends out his mighty Combiners or if you prefer Gestalts and soon all hell breaks loose!

A battle between them and their Autobot counterparts turns into an old ECW match. This animated one off wanted to focus on their “Scramble abilities “which is their interchangeability of their outer extremities.

(Get it? Cause you can scramble the limbs up!)

So much so that at one point, Breakdown of the Stunticons connects into Superion’s leg to damage him (it looks a bit weird but I assume Cybertron doesn’t have a good sexual assault law). As the show comes to a close, Scramble City himself is activated and Transforms its super cool robot mode Metroplex!

The Decepticons however, have an ace in the hole and from the deep dark part of the ocean comes Godzilla ….wait no sorry about that, it’s the Decepticons’ very own base, Trypticon.

Scramble City is one of those amazing animated shorts that we wished was in our collection but due to a whole bunch of copy right legal mumbo jumbo its only a part of the Japanese continuity.

“Till all are one!”

Convoy! Convoy! Convoy!

If you haven’t learned by now, I am a sucker for anything and everything Japanese related. Make them about the Transformers and I’m about sure to cry.

After the death of Prime, kids and adults alike cried their collective Autobot loving eyes out as they watched the beloved leader of the peace loving protectors of good die.

A real world problem solved with a real world emotion.

Daniel’s reaction was the reaction of us all.

In Japan, the Transformers animated film wouldn’t be released until 1990. It was almost certain that Prime would receive the same reaction.

When season 3 of transformers was about to debut on Japanese television, they needed to explain why good old Optimus Prime was dead.

So they started airing this commercial.


I just love that this commercial has such a high level of detail given to the fallen Prime.
