+ I don't know you guys, but I found several similarities between Billy Billions and Syndrome, the bad guy from "The Incredibles". Playing the whole "I-want-but-I-can't" and being "dangerous-but-pathetic" at the same time. We could even said that the Dimension 12's robots are his "Omnidroids" who end turning against him.
But Syndrome was competent. There are some similarities, but no real comparisons.
+ You know?, I think Billy Billions could be a good member of a new version of the "Negative 10". It would be a group of human villains who want to destroy Ben for several reasons. Other members for this new group could be Carl Nesmith (Captain Nemesis), Will Harangue and Sublimino. Sounds interesting, huh?
Yes. This would be good.
+ Honestly, why the Plumbers hired Blukic and Driva anyway? They must be the shame of their species. Even Ben as Greymatter can be smarter than these guys.
It's likely that Blukic & Driba are all the Plumbers could get on Earth. Galvans are smart aliens, very smart aliens, and they have a bit of a superiority complex. It's not hard to believe that they would deem themselves too good for Earth.
+ They have made another "nonsense change" in Omniverse. I like the new design of the robot's from Dimension 12; but when they have become bigger, more powerful and all red just like Computron? They were all blue previously. Another change made by Ben after restoring the universe in "So long and thanks for all the Smoothies"?
It's a change brought upon by style. Alternatively, it's possible that there are several types of robots in Dimension 12.
+ I think Ben is losing the neurons with his ages. First, the battle against the "new" robots from Dimension 12 could have been an excellent opportunity to use Humungousaur's ability to grow; and second, don't you think Clockwork could have been useful to return Ben and Rook their real age? Of course they would have to be extremely careful with this, but yet, Clockwork's time rays could have made possible for Ben and Rook to age back to their real ages. Don't you think?
We still have very little idea regarding what Clockwork can actually do. Attempting anything would be foolhardy. I do agree on Humungo not growing, though.
+ Ben is afraid of peacocks? I mean, seriously?!! Since when?, and why? What do those birds have to scare anyone?
It's a Chekhov's Gun. It's a bit of seemingly useful, ridiculous info that will become relevant later. Like the mention of the electric slide in Hot Stretch and the inclusion of Billions Tower in Malefactor, it serves to set up a plot, or at the least a joke.
We know, because Derrick has said so, that the king of Liam/Kickin Hawk's species looks like a peacock. And now we know Ben is afraid of them. This will come back to bite him in the ass. It is obvious.
+ Something strange about Bloxx in this episode. First, it seems Bloxx is stronger than Humungousaur; because where Humungousaur was unable to break the heads of the Dimension 12's robots, Bloxx seemed to do without too much difficulty. And second, it seems Ben at his 11 years was better using his aliens than at his 16 years. I mean, Bloxx used a lot of cool and awesome tricks here, never seen before. Tricks like rotating like a ball at Cannonbolt's style or disassemble his body to escape from a trap. Don't you find this curious?
That's just Ben being more experienced with Bloxx.
Also, he's a big LEGO gorilla. He is a piece separator, obviously.
+ I expected some differences in Ben's aliens when he used them in his 11-years-old body, but there wasn't anyone to notice. Damn!!
Yeah, that sucked.
