Question 1: Which of the following Autobots (original series) is not primarily red?
Answer: b. Hound (the two other choices were Inferno and Sideswipe)
Question 2: In the original series, which faction have flight capabilities in robot mode?
Answer: b. Decepticons (a somewhat treacherous question; while some Autobots were shown flying in More Than
Meets The Eye and a few season 3 episodes, these are exceptions from the large majority of the episodes.
The Decepticons were consistently depicted as having flight capability in robot mode though. The Mini-Cons were naturally
not part of the original series.)
Question 3: What is the name of Spike's female friend that appears in several episodes of the original
Answer: c. Carly (the other two choices were Carrie and Cindy)
Question 4: Which popular Autobot in seasons 3 and 4 of the original cartoon did not have a toy
Answer: a. Arcee (Kranix was neither an Autobot nor featured in the cartoon, only in the animated movie.
Sandstorm did have a toy.)
Question 5: Which voice actor did the voices for Ultra Magnus, Astrotrain and Ramjet in the original
Answer: b. Jack Angel (the other two choices were Corey Burton and Frank Welker)
Question 6: Many Transformers toys share the same basic toy design. Two Autobots (original series) had their
appearance heavily altered when the toy design was adapted for the cartoon and comic books. The alteration included the
addition of an actual head. Which Autobot duo are we thinking of?
Answer: a. Ratchet and Ironhide (the other two choices were Grapple and Inferno, whose cartoon/comic appearances
were actually quite true to their toy designs, and Twin Twist and Top Spin, who never featured in the comic or the cartoon)
Question 7: Which Transformers cartoon series featured such unusual figures as a penguin, a giraffe, and a mammoth?
Answer: c. Beast Wars Neo (the other two choices were Transformers Animated and Transformers Cybertron)
The contest entries were evaluated by a jury consisting of the NTFA Forums' team of administrators
The jury's decision is final.
