Again they did get released in the U.S. and did make appearances in the U.S. comic books.

The G1 toyline continued into the year 1990 and the G1 comic book lasted till 1989 if I'm right.

So Transformers did exsist past "The Rebirth".

There was even the "not so well known season 5" that was a re-edited selected G1 episodes that featured a "live action" puppet of Powermaster Optimus Prime as narriator of the story.

So since Powermaster Prime made it into continuity then we can assume that the Pretenders did as well.

And there were Transformers in the U.S. before "Beast Wars".

There was the Generation 2 toyline,comic book and cartoon.While the cartoon itself was a "re-edited" version of the G1 toon it still was placed on the air to acompany the G2 toyline.

What your saying is in error.

What you want to say is that the characters do not exsist in the U.S. cartoons continuity.

But were not talking about continuity or cartoons....were talking about examples of the same names or simular names being used on 2 different characters within the same line.

As it pretains to that topic, the Pretenders and Micromaster "DO" exsist.

Here's the scenerio I'd like to see with Rodimus Prime. I'd like to see him as a Optimus' old academy pal and best friend. And I'd like to see Sentinel have a strong friendship with him as well, which would further complicate Sentinel's current relationship with Optimus.

If both Optimus and Sentinel were good friends with Rodimus, we'd then get to see some sort humorous fight over who Rodimus likes more as a best friend.

I can't say I like the basic concept because I've been in the position you put Rodimus into and it's not a fun exsperience. It would be exstremly difficult to pull that off as a humorous situation but that all depends on how it's played out. For Rodimus it would quite literally feel like Optimus and Sentinel were playing tug a war pulling both arms in oppisite directions.

That's one way to play on the humor, if they physically did that rather than haveing Optimus and Sentinel fight like they allways do and Rodimus just trying to stay impartial to their fight.

Really there's no way any of the 3 sides has anything to gain from this kind of fighting and being a kids cartoon they'd probly have to make that a moral to the story which would make it even harder to make the situation funny.

They kind of did something like this on Sponge Bob but it was Patric and SB fighting over Squidward who didn't like either of them anyway and he was the reason they started fighting in the first place only they didn't know it so all that made it really easy to make the situation funny. The situation you speak of is really hard especially for Rodimus.

Well, it would be like this. Optimus would view Rodimus as a good friend and comrade. Sentinel would view Rodimus as a respectable ally and warrior. When Rodimus shows up, Optimus would want to catch up with his old friend and rekindle their friendship. but Sentinel, not wanting Optimus to have anything to do with Rodimus, would try to get Rodimus to forget about Optimus and focus on more important things like the current Decepticon problem... and how much a greater Autobot than Optimus Sentinel is (or so he believes).

The humor in this would be Sentinel trying to get Rodimus away from Optimus, and failing. Cuz I don't think a jerk like Sentinel would be enough to break up a strong friendship between good friends like Optimus and Rodimus.

Of course, this is all just what I'm thinking of. It's not official. Just to let those of you who might be reading this and thinking it's real know that it's not.

I think that Rodimus will be another Liutenant or a Possible Captain Like deal in The Elite Gaurd.

He was sent away on a mission to keep tabs on possible Decepticon activities in other parts of the universe.


His relationship with Optimus Prime could be that of a Mentor/Teacher or they could be almost like brothers.


Reason he could have been kicked out of the Elite Gaurd maybe Sentinel Prime was getting jealous of the attention Optimus was getting from Rodimus.

Then Sentinal got all pissed-off about and framed Optimus into doing something stupid, and Rodimus seeing Optimus do it and not knowing that it was really Sentinal's idea all along he gets booted out of the academy and that is how he became a Space-Bridge Tech.

Think of how they all thought Wasp was the Decipticon spy but really it was Long-Arm (SHOCKWAVE) and how he was framed by BB. This could be what happened to Optimus in his Academy years.

That is my only explanation cause Optimus is a great-warrior leader so he had to have been set up bye someone or framed into doing something stupid.


I hope that they will be some flash-back episodes explaining Optimus removal from the Elite Gaurd.

Cause really I dont understand it my self not unless Optimus took the blame for something for someone else to keep them in the Academy thus he had to take the fall.


Look I am just glad season 3 is on its way and it has been finaly confirmed, not just un-official rumors.

Also I was right about S3 being 13 episodes also.


All I wanna know is now is the names of the episodes.

The offical Air-Date on Cartoon when exactly it will be on.

Not an estimated ETA date of just Spring 2009.


My theory is that everything is going to be released around revenge of the fallen is in June.

Thus Hasbro can make a bucket-load of cash and milk tf for all it is worth.


TF Animated S3 June 2009

TF ROTF June 2009

TF ROTF Videogame Multiplatform

Possible more DVD Box-Sets of other Sagas of the show.

Beast Wars, Re-Mastered G1 Sets (WISHFUL THINKING), The Headmasters,
Super-God Masterforce, Victory, Beast Wars 2 or Neo dont know the name cause it is in Japan.

And of course is RiD my money is on this one next cause it hasnt been seen in so long and hasnt even been on DVD yet.

Most likely be a 4 Disk complete DVD Box Set.

You're use of the word "fraimed" is a little off. You can't be "fraimed into doing something". Fraimed means that you were faulsely accused of doing something you didn't either on accident or intentianlly. If someone gets shot and some how you end up with the murder weapon at the scene of the crime that could be an unintentional fraiming. The real criminal drops the gun and you pick it up trying to go after said criminal yourself. Intentinal fraiming would be when evidence of a crime has been planted, say you're going through air port security and they find illegal drugs in your lugage. Both cases I just mentioned can be avoided, that's why you don't touch anything at the scene of a crime, you end up makeing yourself a suspect. And that's why they ask you if your lugage has ever been out of your sight because any time you weren't keeping track of your own suit case someone else could of planted the evidence inside.

Now if Sentinal were to talk Optimus into doing something stupid as you sugested that's not being fraimed because if he was being fraimed as I just exsplained there would only be evidence that he did something when he actully didn't. If Optimus DID do something stupid because Sentinal talked him into it then he DID commit whatever crime he would of been accused of. In other words he was set up.

You allso said "fraimed by BB" at one point but BB never fraimed anyone. It was Shockwave who planted the evidence on Wasp, Shockwave fraimed Wasp, not Bumblebee. Bumblebee was just the one who found said evidence. Allso the way you worded that sentence it looks like you said BB fraimed Shockwave.

I never said anything about someone being murdered.

Look the word "FRAMED" can be summed up in several diffrent meanings not necessarily meaning murder.

I meant to say he could of had been tricked into doing something stupid.

He also could have had discremenaning evidence planted against him somehow of how Waspinator was caught with it like how Shockwave planted the evidence.


I dont see any other reasons why Optimus would get kicked out when he was one of the top new recuits in the Academy.

I say that Sentinel must have done something, or it could have been an undercover Decipticon I guess none of us will no until the new upcoming season 3 comes out.

That is still unkown if we will still see anymore flashback episodes but I am banking on it.


Also they better not forget about the Sari promblem. About why she never had any indentfications, no bitrth certificates.

Also I want to know why she seems to have what looks like Cybertrionian circuitray in her arm.

But when I looked closer at the circuits it looks a little alien to me and it was Bluish-Black Green lookin.

This could be that it just looks diffrent cause she may have just reversed engineered parts from Megatron.

I doubt the U.S. will get The Headmasters, Chojin Masterforce, Victory, or Zone on DVD. It it was, it would've already happened.

And seeing as how neither the UK nor Australia (the countries that got the JG1 series DVDs) haven't gotten Beast Wars II and Beast Wars Neo yet, I really doubt the U.S. would get them before those other countries.

As for RiD, the only way the U.S. is gonna get RiD on DVD is if Disney quits holding onto it and hands it over.

Look I wanna know why the heck Disney even owns the rights to RiD.

It makes no sense to me at all.


Look when it aired back on TV it was shown on FOX.


How the heck did Disney even get a hold of it and why hasnt Disney ever made a DVD Box-Set of it.


I hope that Hasbro/Paramount buys the rights or another company such as Rhino, or Sunbow the ones that made the original G1's if they are even still around.

Look Disneys too me seems to have had this for along time but has never done anything with it like another TV Favorite of mine The Mighty Ducks, nor have they made any of the other Jetix Shows on to DVD Box sets.

Power Rangers G1
Power Rangers G2
Power Rangers-Turbo
Power Rangers-Zeo
Power Rangers-Galaxy or In Space
Power Rangers-Mystic Force

The Mighty Ducks
Jackie Chan Adventures
X-Men
Spiderman-Ultimate
Spiderman
Kim Possible

Look they have been single dvds of it out such as Greates Hits and of course the movies also but never a complete dvd box-set.

None of the shows I mentioned have made it on dvd box set and disney should give the rights to someone who will.

It's simple. RiD was dubbed by Saban. Disney bought out Saban and thus aquired RiD.

Still I would like RiD to go to a normal company to final get the DVD Box Set treatment the only way that is going to be done is that it either goes to Hasbro/Paramount or goes to Rhino.

But my money is on Hasbro and I hope it will be done like the Energon and Cybertron DVD Box Sets.

But nothing will be done until someone buys the rights to the series.

Right now the series is just resting in suspended animation not doing anything or it could be just held up in legal limbo.

Right now it is sitting in a archive with 100 feet of dust on it cause it has not been used in over a decade.



I am just glad that Season 3 is in the works and I am fixing to get my Energon Box set in Decemeber.


So overall that is good enough but it would be nice if someone would do something about RiD.

But lookin how long it has been, I am having my dounbts that it will ever see the light of day on DVD.

But I have been proven wrong such as Energon and Cybertron never getting a DVD Box-Set. So I could be wrong about RiD also.

But as things stand right now it looks very doubtful the series will ever see anything done with it.

It is sad cause I done forgot what it was about and like I said it was almost a decade ago back in the early 90's.

Damn I am getting old.

I never said you did. That was just ment as an example of how "fraimed" could be used. Basically I was just saying that if you were fraimed you never actully commited any crime but the evidence still sugests you did.

What you were sugesting sounds like Optimus ACTULLY commits the crime. You even sugested that Rodimus sees him commiting said crime. You can't be fraimed for doing something that you actully did it has to be something you didn't do but looks like you did.

she may have just reversed engineered parts from Megatron.


She couldn't have done that to herself, she didn't even know about it.

I meant to saying that Isaac Sumdac could have used reversed egineering parts from Megatron onto Sari.

Possibly when she was younger maybe she was deathly sick or had a disease that was incurable. Or maybe she was crippled and would never be a normal human.

Thus sensing this Isaac Sumdac used reverse egineering from Megatron's Head and that is why Sari's Arm seems to be of Cybertronian Origin.

Also could explain why it looked a little wierd and alienish it looked sort of like the alien stuff you would see on Justice League.



Also I am sorry I phrased my sentencing wrong I meant to say Optimus may have taken the fall for something or someone could have planted some discreminating evidence against him cause they had a Grudge against Optimus.

Then they saw this evidence and Optimus was kicked out of the Academy for something he didnt do. Or he was trying to keep someone form getting kicked out of the academy and he took the blame and he got kicked out so they could stay in the academy.


Like I said we wont know until some more flash-back episodes are made in the upcoming season 3.

But mostly I am betting on Season 3 continuing more on Sari, Sumdac getting his tower back.

Introducing new Chracacters such as Rodimus and Strika, also returning chracters such as Omega Supreme, Starsceams Clones, Megatron will he be upgraded as Galvatatron or will Galvatron be a seperate being. No one knows and no one will know until season 3 is released next spring.

Also I say more characters will return and have more screen time.

Arcee
Wreck-Gar
Constructicons
Starscream's Head
Megatron
The Elite Gaurd
Mr. Powell
The Dinobots
Black Arachnia
Lockdown
Swindle

Dont know about the Human Villians such as Melt-Down or Slow-Mo


Look I am just happy season 3 isnt just a rumor now and we can have more closure on the story.

They are many questions that need to be answered in Season 3, and season 3 better live up to the hype.

But if it is being done bye the original Beast Wars writers, then we shouldnt have to much to worry about.

Overall we have to worry about is the waiting now. Which is still almost 6 or 7 months away.

But good news is better than bad news at least there is a season 3 now and it is not just wishful thinking or made-up rumors.

Not really. RiD aired on TV in 2001-2002. The TF show that was on in the early 90s was Transformers Generation 2, then Beast Wars in 1996.

Sorry Like I said it has been along time since I even last saw RiD.

Also I though Generation 2 was just Comic-Deal or a Japan only thing.

Also it was Beast Wars, then Beast Machines followed bye the Unicron Trilogy of Armada, Energon and Cybertron.


I am sure Beast Machines played after RiD was over with as Generation 2 was never seen in the US.


Generation 2 is were Megatron is a Tank not a gun. also introduced a lot of new characters.


I always thought G2 was a Comic-Book and it was only Shown in Japan on TV.

If it was shown here in the states I must have missed it cause I only remember Beast Machines and RiD and of course G1 and Beast Wars.


Shown in the USA

Transformers Generation 1
Trransformers The Movie
Transformers The Rebirth
Transformers RiD
Transformers Beast Wars
Transformers Beast Machines
Transformers Armada
Transformers Energon
Transformers Cybertron
Transformers Animated

Not seen or shown in the US

Beast Wars 2
Beast Wars Neo could be just Beast Wars 2 Neo
Transformers Victory
Transformers The Headmasters or Season 4 of G1
Transformers Super God Master Force


I am a little confused on Beast Wars I no that they were more shows of it in Japan but I am not exactly sure on the name of it

Beast Wars 2 or Beast Wars 2 Neo


But I watched alot of cartoons back in the early 90's and I do not remeber seeing Generation 2 on TV here in the states.

I always watched FOX, Disney and of course Toonami was getting going in the early 90's and of course they were other channels also that showed toons also SCI-FI channel also showed cartoons on it also when it was 1st on cable.

It was however in the cartoon they redid some exsisting G1 episodes with EXSTREMLY annoying CGI effects between scenes and called it G2 however it was just G1 with stupid effects added in.

The japan/comic whatever it was G2 was actully a continuation of G1. So if you want to get overly technical the REAL G2 never hit the U.S. except maybe in comics and toys. The cartoon got a fake G2 which was actully still part of G1.

Also it was Beast Wars, then Beast Machines followed bye the Unicron Trilogy of Armada, Energon and Cybertron.

I am sure Beast Machines played after RiD was over with as Generation 2 was never seen in the US.


Nope R.I.D. took place in between Beast Machines and Armada. R.I.D. was allso the last Transformers series to air on Fox Kids as whoever took over the network and changed the name to the Fox Box got rid of all the shows I use to watch and replaced them with mostly really stupid crap like that pinyada show.

Again we did get something which they refered to as G2 but it was only G1 episodes redone with really stupid CGI effects.

Generation 2 is were Megatron is a Tank not a gun. also introduced a lot of new characters.

I always thought G2 was a Comic-Book and it was only Shown in Japan on TV.


Yes but not in the US cartoon. G2 was just G1 episodes with stupid CGI effects that happen every 5 sec.

Transformers Generation 1
Trransformers The Movie
Transformers The Rebirth
Transformers RiD
Transformers Beast Wars
Transformers Beast Machines
Transformers Armada
Transformers Energon
Transformers Cybertron
Transformers Animated


Earlier you said R.I.D. happen between Beast Wars and Beast Machines now you're saying it happen before Beast Wars and you're wrong on both accounts.

Transformers Generation 1 (Technically speaking both the movie and the rebirth were still part of G1 so you really didn't need to list them seperatly. There were 2 seasons of G1 then the movie, then season 3, then the Rebirth, and then I belive the fake G2.)
Transformers Beast Wars
Transformers Beast Machines
Transformers RiD
Transformers Armada
Transformers Energon
Transformers Cybertron
Micheal Bay's Transformers (You completly forgot this one but I don't really blame you, I hated that movie.)
Transformers Animated

Beast Wars 2
Beast Wars Neo
Transformers Victory
Transformers The Headmasters or Season 4 of G1
Transformers Super God Master Force


Again out of order and you might be missing some, I'm not really sure.

Headmasters would be first, then Victory and Super God Master Force but I don't know what order thoughs two are in, Beast Wars 2 and Beast Wars Neo yes you were right they are two different series would be last in that order.

I actully can't remember or just don't know what network originally showed G1 but I think it was Fox.

Beast Wars, Beast Machines, and R.I.D. I know were on Fox Kids but after R.I.D. ended Fox Kids turned into the Fox Box and their rateings probly droped from there sence their shows mostly suck now.

Armada, Energon, Cybertron, and Animated all played on Cartoon Network. Cybertron allso had a short run on Kids WB but I don't think they had the full series and just showed reruns that allready played on Cartoon Network.

I've noticed Cartoon Network and Kids WB have ALOT of the same shows so I'm inclined to belive they're run by the same people.

No....RID came out in the US after Beast Machines.But its the other way around in Japan.

Yes it was. :grin:

Correct but the G2 cartoon was a re-edit of the G1 cartoon with no new animation so in the G2 cartoon Megatron was still a gun.

Yep you missed it.

But to tell the truth I think they only re-edited about 13 episodes.
