The clothes make the man, and the Power Suit makes a Renegade!
(Numbers indicate order of appearance.)
- Gadgets and Powers:
- Scooter creates a hologram of a semi truck to divert Crasher.
- Doctor Go can plug into computer data storages using wires in his chest, uploading an entire database into his mind.
- Leader-1 can project energy beams from his eyes (either thanks to the Power Suit or not) which can levitate and transport the Renegades.
- Scooter lures Leader-1 into a cage by making him believe he's walking up the Commander Center's entrance ramp.
- Scooter's retractable chest wire can extract the data Doctor Go downloaded into his chest using his own plugs.
- The Guardian Power Suits look completely different this episode, without even the most remote resemblance to the toys or previous appearances.
- If Leader-1's plan was for the Guardians to never know they were in the digital storage vault, why did he get on the monitor and laugh maniacally at them?
- From the time Cy-Kill infiltrates the Command Center to Leader-1 revealing his true colors to the Renegades, both factions are carrying hand-held blasters. Before and after this brief window, everyone is using their traditional hand-blasters.
Animation and technical errors
- When Doctor Go is (apparently) carrying the Power Suit while invisible to dispose of it, the Suit has Leader-1's face as if he were inside it.
- General Newcastle's hair hasn't gone gray yet when we first see him.
- Path Finder's head gets weird after Leader-1's transmission from the vault. It's flatter, longer, and strangely mixes with her neck.
- Scooter's hologram of a giant red semi-cab with smokestacks and its blue trailer bears an odd resemblance to someone we know.
