LOL, glad someone got a kick out of this! I was starting to think I was the only Transfan here (which is kind of shocking, considering the worldwide proliferation of the brand). Yeah, Ingestor sucks, though I do dig the concept of him being a 'spirit' that 'possesses' the planet, Unicron. I also found it rather shocking who lives and who dies - Skywarp and Thundercracker being consumed instead of reformatted into Galvatron's minions (although which ones is a whole 'nother debate I'd rather skirt around); Wheeljack surviving and being called throughout the script; the gruesome deaths of Gears (who's death was confirmed in later episodes but left vague) and Windcharger (who's occurred differently, and offscreen); and especially, Blaster's guerrilla squad of surviving Autobot commandos (including Hound, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker, and possibly others). I'll dig around and see if I can find the storyboards for a draft somewhere between this one and final, where it shows even more deviation (including specific deaths for Smokescreen and Red Alert, etc).
