@  Paladin : (05 June 2020 - 05:15 PM)

remember when Energon had to switch animation styles because their CGI models were completely incapable of expressing emotions ?

@  Thundercrack... : (05 June 2020 - 04:42 PM)

And what was done to Demolisher to a lesser extent.

@  Thundercrack... : (05 June 2020 - 04:34 PM)

Energon's biggest problem is what it did to Starscream.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 04:00 PM)

I mean, they took all of that and the series is still dull enough to use as a sleep aid, so....

@  wonko the sane? : (05 June 2020 - 02:46 PM)

It's a food source, a weapon and so unstable that looking at it funny makes it explode. If energon is boring, blame the writers not the element.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 02:17 PM)

Energon's big problem is that it's boring.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 June 2020 - 01:48 PM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

@  Roddie Luver : (27 May 2020 - 09:37 PM)

I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

Why are they sneaking around? there only seems to be the 6 Transformers on Cybertron, and they're immediately spotted. (sigh) BW had twice the cast, Energon had armies of Terrorcons and Cybertron/GF had a nice size cast.

 

I'm actually trying to come up with reasons why it's so deserted, is this the world that Megatron took over before BM? Or is it just some desolated universe where they wiped out their race during the war, maybe everyone left on various ships to explore space.

 

I've wondered since she first appeared in the comics, what does the Mistress of Flame turn into? A pile of spikes? It looks like she's wearing the Iron Throne on her back.

 

Windblade is coming to kill them all says the Mistress of Flame, this feels actually insulting to Windblade who fans choose to have a Valiant personality.

 

Windblade is hearing voices, well I suppose that's gotta be Metroplex or Fortress (anything feels possible in this).

 

Oh hey Devastator that makes 12 Transformers on Cybertron, I guess the people that made this haven't gotten over the '86 movie or they know their audience, I really hope Rodimus doesn't die from that but I won't be at all surprised if in the next episode Optimus tries to save him but gets to him too late and Rodimus gives a "You were right all along" death speech.

 

And I'm guessing that stop-motion advertisement spoiled the next episode.

I kind of want the writers to justify the lack of everybody else on Cybertron as "Combiners done killed everyone and the ones that didn't got turned into more permanently combined Combiners.  Long story short, Windblade killed everyone ever."

 

Actually, considering this series' premise of permanently-combined-into-a-single-being-Combiners-as-a-new-race, it would have been a much more interesting story if Windblade were trying to figure out how to de-combine everyone instead of just outright kill them all.

 

That is exactly what she's doing.  Helping them de-combine...with a sword.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I'm going to assume she shows up at the end of the next episode (which will be a five minute Devastator fight with Windblade, surely) to take out Devastator in one sword swipe to prove how awesome she is, everyone.

 

She doesn't afraid of anything.

Megatron is the Raul Julia of this series.  He's the only one who seems to be aware that he's featuring in a train wreck and has just decided to have some fun and enjoy the ham.

 

Yeah, I'm continuing to really love this Megatron. He's the only thing that really makes it watchable. All that silly jumping around... "we could just walk in..."

 

I do find it interesting that this Starscream does actually seem to be good-intentioned now, rather than it just being a scheme. Shades of flashbacking Starscream from "Fire in the Sky" there.

 

The Mistress of Flame is really disappointing, all-around. Bad dialogue, bad design, bad sound, bad voice acting (why did they make her sound like she's talking through a can?)

It's weird watching Starscream in Fire in the Sky then all the other episodes but that said it's not unknown for Transformers to do this, we never saw Beast Wars Rampage return to anything like his self in 'Transmutate', not even when he and Silverbolt fought in 'Crossing the Rubicon'.

They were beaten by Victorion who is the coolest new character and is better than everybody else. Both Megatron and Optimus want to date her. Victorion used her special sword and gravity powers and then everybody decided she was the new leader.


Well, at least one of them gets their wish, in a way. Thanks, Japan!

I'm kind of waiting for this actual combiner war, all we had so far of combiners fighting is Mensor V Computron and that's it, sure Devastator appeared at the end of the last ep and ripped Rodimus's arm off but we're not getting any real combiner fights, at this rate when the war starts, fans might of begun to not bother watching this and instead go off and watch Stop motion videos featuring actual combiners fighting!

Probably, if anything, I think this series isn't really a series at all, its just a movie that's been sliced up into 5 min segments and had the label of episodes stuck on them, much like the Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome was!

Machinima put a compiled version of episodes 1 and 2 on YouTube that U.S. viewers can watch.

 

 

Watching this compiled version of episodes 1 and 2 has now proved a few things.
 
First, for all the framerate complaints from before, watching this YouTube version reveals that the framerate issues aren't so much the fault of the cartoon itself, but more with the quality of the video on Go90's player, as the framerate for the animation of the robots looks a LOT better in this YouTube version. Granted, it's still very flawed in places, especially during Starscream's flying/falling back to the Council chamber in episode 2, but as bad as it is, it's not nearly as awful in this version as it was on Go90.
 
Second, not only does this show not work well as a mini-series of 5-minute episodes, but neither does it work when compiled together. The second episode feels like some time has passed between it and episode 1, yet watching them back-to-back here feels like almost no time has passed between the two episodes, making the Council's learning of the Menasor vs. Computron fight on Caminus, and Windblade's arrival on Cybertron, happen way too quickly. Because of this feeling of immediacy, the Council speaks of the fight as though it had happened much earlier than we saw it happen in relation to when they convene to discuss it, and Windblade seems to show up on Cybertron practically instantaneously. If there had been some sort of transitional wipe or fade to show a passage of time between the two episodes, that could have helped greatly. But as is, the flow of time (or lack thereof) comes off as being more confusing than ever.

Theory- Mistress is in league with the Constructicons and the over donking was a code telling them to go into action.

It would fit with how bad the writing is.
