Broke the Matrix
Council of Elders
Even when Armada first came out were there still some lingering attempts to connect it, too, back to G1, rather than just accepting the concept of it being a reboot.
I remember those "Armada is a sequel to season 4!" rumours!
I hate to be that guy, but can we stay on target about Legacy.
Done.Sure thing. I'd love to continue this Beast Era talk, but it deserves its own thread.
I remember the Armada stuff about being a continuation of G1. I'm pretty sure there was some sort of news or announcement that painted it as such at one point, and the early commercials for the cartoon using G1 character models certainly did little to dispel the idea:
That said, something I'd love to see is a story that basically takes the Armada premise and... I don't want to say "characters," exactly, since they're distinct from their namesakes, but the players, and makes it a continuation of G1. Not that I need it to be about G1, but rather, it's just a premise that piqued my curiosity, yet was never followed up on.
Similar to how Beast Wars was originally a direct sequel to G1, with Primal and Megatron actually being their namesakes, rather than descendents. I'd love to see how that, along with original toy bios, such as Waspinator being more of a Terminator-type and Tarantulas being a ninja, would play out. I'd rather that than another remake of the cartoon concept.
Basically, a fresh take on familiar concepts using unexplored ideas from long ago.
