It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

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.

Interesting that Starscream's new design is a new body in-universe. Aligned cartoons don't mention designs changing in different series, so are probably just artistic license.

 

I'm presuming Predaking mauled him after Predacons Rising and he got rebuilt to be bigger and tougher offscreen.

 

Shadelock, Roughedge, and the Insecticon seem to be hired muscle.

 

Nice to see the Dark Star Sabre again.

Ah, okay, so this is definitely the first of the three episodes that'll be put together as a TV movie in the US.

I'd understand this odd little "season" of six episodes if this really was the end of the show, but it's clearly been proven it isn't, so it's just weird...

"Hey look, I found a prop from the last series!"

 

But honestly this was interesting, good to see the filler villains tossed aside and replaced by Starcream and some less-obvious model reuse. The Minicons are pretty fun and I'm interested where this is going. Sideswipe stuff was painful and made no sense because everyone has said nastier things about the Minicons at some point. Turns out they just hate it when you violate their personal space which is kind of ironic.

Sideswipe needs some actual development. He's all the worst attributes of cocky young heroes in action toons, which is odd because the pilot had him showcase humility.

Is Roughedge's model reused from something? It kinda looks Prime-y, and it'd be weird for just one of the mercs to have a new model, but I can't place it...

Looks like modified Overload. The big guy is an Insecticon, and laser eye guy looks like a Vehicon body with a new head.

It seems odd that Dragonus and Doomitron aren't among the other Mini-Cons - it'd make sense if it were just the going-to-be-Autobots ones, but Lancelon is there.

Regardless, I assume they'll turn up in the next two episodes, along with Slipstream becoming a Weaponizer, given thatthe RID toyline isn't really in the business of doing non-show characters.

Good episode. Not notably "better than" the show has been the rest of this series and the majority of last. It's been a consistently cool, fun show and this ep was right on target and tone with exactly what it has been.

Love the inclusion on SS and his mercenaries though.


-ZacWilliam, It's interesting that Starscream's goal is revenge on Megatron, whose status quo is currently unknown. I wonder if he could return next season. (Though I think we saw Steeljaw's VA is back next season IIRC...)

I'd understand this odd little "season" of six episodes if this really was the end of the show, but it's clearly been proven it isn't, so it's just weird...

 

Is it possible that Hasbro ordered 6 episodes to come out between 2 and 3 so that they would have some form of media to advertise toys during the fall?

 

I mean, the toyline has to stick around for a whole year, but the show only takes 3 months tops ot air all of it's content early on. As a business measure it fills a gap of content.

 

I find it REALLY weird to see Starscream as the big bopping bad guy after the disgraceful existence he was in Prime, it would make sense if it were a "well against a rookie team he looks badass" but he's suddenly huge and manning people around and his confidence is genuine instead of cartoon buffoon anxiety. Like it's not the show's fault, it was probably Hasbro that forced them to use the character in first place, but it's weird to watch. 

 

I LOVE the minicons, this is easily the coolest the concept has ever been, I had a stupid smile when the electronic-horror music started playing as they posessed the Autobots. I hope this becomes a lore-thing, it's a fun idea.

 

Optimus looks colored different. He lost the black marks on his shoulders and the blue lights around his neck. Dunno why they changed that but I think it looks better, get on it Takara!

 

All in all, good episode, but that goes unsaid by this point. Hope the Scavengers aren't completely gone because I would REALLY like a retool of Bisk in those slick marine colors!

I dunno, Prime Starscream was a schmuck, but he wasn't completely incompetent or lacking confidence in himself.

I feel like he works quite well as a big threatening baddie here, if only because he's a good-'n'-proper veteran-of-the-war Decepticon, which naturally carries some weight relative to all the usual present-day RID 'Cons who are only Decepticons in, I dunno, a cultural sense? They've still never really addressed it properly, have they? At times they sort of acted like Decepticon = criminal, but then Fracture was a Decepticon effectively working for the authorities in a legimate capacity, so...

I like what they're doing with Starscream. It makes sense that big name Cons from the war would be a far more credible threat than some random thugs who apparently just get branded as Decepticons by an overzealous government.

 

But then as a whole RID hasn't charmed me, so of course I'm going to love them increasingly acknowledge the prequel that I loved.

I like how they kept Starscream's face the same and made it look as though was wearing a big bulky helmet around his skinny old head, it was a neat design choice.

 

I'm kind of hoping that we'll see more of the Scavengers, though... their role felt a bit truncated if their entire purpose was to dig up the Dark Star Saber and then get roflstomped by Starscream.
