In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

Details from the Brandon Easton War for Cybertron panel at TFcon LA tweeted by an attendee:

 

https://twitter.com/...400658456465409

 

Brandon has written over half the first season of the show. And it will be directed to the older fans of the brand.
 

Dude knows the comics that's ace. Dropped a few specific details about IDW Unicron series.
 

How to watch? Doesn't know yet. Hopefully more than one season. DVD/Blu-ray should be out maybe a year after show releases.
 

Voting with your dollar works.
 

There is money going into this tv show. Production is under way right now. Maybe out in 2020? Not sure. Could be later?
 

Geeking out about the transformers 86 movie! Haha! Brandon is ace!
 

6 episode season around 22 mins give or take.
 

He thinks when a trailer drops fans will be very pleased and surprised at how it's going. Can't say if Metroplex is in it.
 

The lore coming out may have lasting effect on canon.
 

Will Cliffjumper die at the beginning? Lots of lols, he can't tell us that.
 

How involved is Hasbro in character direction? Not oppressive, keeping the characters true to themselves. G1 fans will not be disappointed.
 

He believes #warforcybertron is gonna be the next definitive show in the brand.

6 eps, come on, it should be at least 12 eps, 22 min each!

 

Hopefully the animation will be better than RID2015 & Cyberverse, I just couldn't get into RID2015 animation while Cyberverse, it felt flat and dull and something I would expect to see from a rookie animatior who uploads stuff to Youtube than from a pro company hired to produce the show!

 

Well, at least they're not calling it the "Game of Thrones of animation," right?

 

I thinking back, I think when they said those comments they must of been rather cocky, but then the people behind Machinema trilogy said they would learn from the mistakes of Combiner Wars but sadly they didn't learn the right lessons, I guess it was a rush job no matter how you look at it!

I enjoyed the panel, thought Brandon Easton was a funny guy with real enthusiasm for the material.

That said, while I am hopeful for the show, I do worry slightly whenever G1 is placed on a pedestal above everything else. I like parts of every iteration, so my ideal Transformers take is not a Best of G1 remix, but a mix of the best of everything (with, admittedly, G1 being the starting template).

Easton gets a bad rap these days, and rightly so because MASK... ugh. Though he was hardly the only person to blame.

But hearing him on Callum and Daniel's podcast... he seems like a decent dude and a good fit for Transformers. I'm still keen to see what he can do when he isn't trapped in the slimy clutches of MASK.

He says that now but things could change between now and when the show finally hits but as always, time will tell, but at least their not saying the Game of Thrones of animation, so that is a plus point to them!

The studio they're using is the exact studio that has been doing nothing but Knights of SIdonia-ish cel-shaded animation since Knights of Sidonia. He didn't even need to make that statement for us to know this would also likely look like KNights of Sidonia.

Naw, if you found RID and Cyberverse to be "flat and dull" then you're hugged here. The studio's netflix output has the same hallmarks of animation, though not quite hitting the same level of fluidity as the current TF shows. Sorry.

 

Also, they worked on some RID episodes.
