** The [[ShoutOut ShoutOuts]] have an interesting effect in the original ''Galaxy Force'' production, by taking the long way around, since the character designs and the entire show's premise and treatment were intended as a sequel to ''Energon''/''Super Link''. However, during production, a reboot was introduced into the Japanese production, resulting many of these "new" characters oddly bearing a resemblance to their counterparts from the originally intended predecessor. This was ultimately resolved by the adoption of the dub's trilogy retcons, re-establishing ''Galaxy Force'' as a sequel to ''Super Link'' (as ''Cybertron'' is to ''Energon''), bringing everything full circle.

*** Not really TransformationIsAFreeAction, though. The talking seems to be more of an internal monologue used to fill the stock footage. The stock footage that's used like packing peanuts. Heck, sometimes the talking is used to [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] the stock footage. And seen from the outside the transformations are instantaneous. **** Prime does explain his plan while transforming once, though. ***** During the longest chunk of uninterrupted stock footage in the show.

** The designs. Optimus's face is taken from Beast Wars "Optimal Optimus," for one. Starscream is based on the Dreamwave Comics pre-Earth Seeker designs. The ''most'' curious one is Metroplex's Mini-con, Drill Bit, who bears a striking resemblance to G1 Decepticon Headmaster Horri-Bull. Also, when you consider that the ''Cybertron'' version changes a lot of names to match past characters, pretty much ''everyone'' is a ShoutOut to their namesake and wasn't intentionally created as a new version of the same character.

* DubInducedPlotHole: Restoring its intended status as a sequel to Armada and Energon when ''Galaxy Force'' wasn't written to be leaves some Unicron-sized holes. Dead characters are alive again, returning characters sometimes act very differently or have new origins, some prominent characters don't seem to exist anymore, nobody remembers Sideways, and so forth. The black hole being a ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths event that changed things is AllThereInTheManual - your average viewer on the street wouldn't go in knowing to take it on its own. ** But if you ''do'' take it on its own, though, as the dub team evidently felt was the choice, it's not so bad. The AllThereInTheManual retcons are pretty weak, and exist mainly to please Aaron Archer, who insisted on it.

The dub's AllThereInTheManual retcons are pretty weak, a bit hit-and-miss, they were subsequently applied back to the original production, ''Galaxy Force'', placing it back into continuity with ''Micron Legend'' (''Armada'') and exist mainly to please Aaron Archer, who insisted on it.''Super Link'' (''Energon''), making them more than just quaintness from a petulant Hasbro.

Added DiffLines:
* HeroicSecondWind: Deconstructed cleverly with the ''villains'' in at least one case. At one point Megatron seemingly meets his end and the Decepticons' forces slowly crumble against the Autobots. Then Megatron revives himself, Crumplezone gets an upgrade, and the tides begin to turn. Leobreaker actually curses that the Decepticons have got their fighting spirit back, leaving him in desperate need of one of these himself.
