Transformers Prime is in its second season on The Hub and we have an exclusive first look at Episode 219, "The Human Factor."

If you've been watching the show, you know that Silas, the human leader of MECH obsessed with Cybertronian biology and using their technology. Now I haven't seen the last few episodes but I recall he was seriously injured during a fight between Nemesis Prime and Optimus. This episode shows us what's next for him.

Behold General Silas!
Behold General Silas!

This is what the official synopsis says:

Silas is given a bizarre new lease on life, and approaches Megatron with a plan to join the Decepticon ranks.

Because of the internal damage to his organs, Silas had to transform his human body. This changes the direction for his character.

Check out these other shots of Silas with Megatron and Soundwave activating a satellite.

I LOVE THIS SHOW! It took a bit of getting use too at first but I've seen every episode and love it. I really like the portrayal of Starscream. I dont know why I like him so much but he's had a couple of great moments. I sorta forgot about Silas since his "death" but now that I know he is coming back I'm eager to see whats going to happen. I hope this show has a long run. I also hope we get to see more of the characters from the comics and would enjoy seeing the show have more space missions. I know its a kid show so it works a bit better if there is a human interaction but I would like to show that avoided the human element that comes with the show

. I really love the two comics that IDW is putting out and think that they are better then any of the series or movies i've seen because they just deal with the robots and no humans. it takes place out in space and the familiar bit of Autobot Vs Decepticon has kind of gone the way of the dinosaurs. Its different for me because I havent been reading any transformers comics until recently.

I wonder if Jayne/ Adam Baldwin will still do the voice of Breakdown or if Clancy Brown will take over...

Huh, if Comic Vine is covering Transformers news too then I'm all for that. I'm a big fan of the brand and a big fan of this show.

I am betting this is why Hasbro refuses to release the Breakdown toy that Takara released. They will probably make a slight redeco of it with a dumb mechtechy weapon and call him Silas. I'm alright with that, but Breakdown is alot cooler. He's voiced by Jayne afterall!

Still I am excited for this episode. I hope we get to see more of Smokescreen as well.

I need to try this sometime. I'm familiar with the show but just never had the opportunity to see it yet. From what I see here though, it makes me realize there's something else I gotta try now! ^^

Love this show, and even after only just appeared, Smokescreen has become my new favorite Autobot of the series.

I was like whoa when i saw this promo trailer. I thought we'd never see Breakdown again. I can't see Megatron forming an alliance with Mech. I think he's starting to become annoyed with humans. Jack restored Optimus' memory. Miko killed Hardshell (another whoa moment). He will rage when he learns Rafael turned Soundwave into an involuntary spy. I wonder what Silas hopes to accomplish in allying with Megatron. They already learned how to make a transformer in a way and now Mech has started a semi Headmaster saga now that Silas is controlling Breakdown's corpse. I bet Silas really wants to control all the deceptions the same way.

TFP is a great show, I'm guessing CV will be posting a description on what the episode will be like Young Justice and Green Lantern the Animated series.

Great show! I've fallen behind but great show!! One of the better reboots! Right up there with Thundercats, Masters of The Universe, TMNT 2002, and GIJoe Renegades.
