Optimus Prime new design in season 3 is similar to that of his Transformers Revenge of the Fallen design at the end of the film.
Since the show often recycled their CGI assets, this meant that the jet flown by Agent Fowler has all sorts of robot-bits on it because it used the same animation model as Dreadwing's and Skyquake's jet forms.
The Japanese dubbing turned the originally solemn and serious series into a more jovial children's cartoon show. Some of the characters were given funny-sounding voices and a lot of comical chatter was added to the dialog. A few characters were re-imagined completely - for example, Airachnid turned from a vengeance-fueled sadist into an over-the-top love-obsessed stalker of teenage boys. The moody orchestral theme-tune was also replaced with an upbeat pop song. Further, season 3 in its entirety was ignored by the Japanese dub, and the big cliffhanger from the second season finale was also removed. Instead, an entirely new mini-series titled Transformers: Go! (2013) was created to replace season 3. The reason for all these changes is that in Japan, the Transformers franchise is regarded strictly as children's property, and the serious tone of the cartoon's original American version clashed greatly with this perception.
