Optimus Prime turns out to have impeccable comic timing

You don't really think of Optimus Prime as being much of a jokester, but he's actually quite funny in this exclusive clip from Saturday's new episode of Transformers Prime.

What's the correct response when someone says, "You cannot harm me while Dark Energon flows through my veins?" Watch the brief clip, and find out. The severed arm clattering to the ground is priceless.

"Shadowzone" airs Saturday at 7 PM, and here's the description:

The kids accidently become stuck inside an alternate dimension during a GroundBridge malfunction. To make matters worse, they're trapped with a reanimated Skyquake!

And here are a couple pics, which you can click to enlarge:

DISCUSSION

Possibly my favorite Transformers series since Beast Wars. The voice acting is excellent (Peter Cullen and Frank Welker FTW), and the requisite kids are only slightly more annoying than the Witwickys from the original cartoon.

Just be warned, it's kind of dark. How dark?

SPOILERS!

Cliffjumper gets killed by Starscream the very first episode... Then gets turned into a feral zombie... Then gets cut in half by Megatron... Then attacks his former Autobot buddies with his upper torso... Then gets exploded.

Also: Creepiest incarnation of Blackarachnia yet! Think Driders from D&D...
