Oh cool, a Power Lords crossover! Makes as much sense as some of their other events. Maybe they'll meet some Buddy L robots next!

There, see? I said something nice about Beast Machines.

I always thought Beast Machine was an alright show for a story perspective, the part that always tuned me off was the shows Aesthetics perspective.

The biggest thing I have against the show is the extremely out of character depiction of Rhinox.

Rattrap and Megatron got slapped pretty hard with that too, most notably in 'The Weak Component.'

But in Rhinox's case, I suspect that was out of desire to rekindle the same vibe from Beast Wars about internal politics and infighting on the bad guys' side, and Rhinox was the only one who was intellectually equal to Megatron, and thus could serve the same role Tarantulas and Blackarachnia had before. They just had to turn him into a ranting megalomaniac to get there...

The show definitely got better as it went on, but it was hard to overcome the initial bad taste its early episodes left...

True dat, but I'm surprised so few fans mention Blackarachnia in that list, because she seriously got gutted as bad as anyone else. She went from being arguably the most complex character in Beast Wars to a collection of token-female-good-guy-in-a-boys'-action-cartoon tropes. Her weapons are downgraded to 'entanglement-projectiles', her personal motivation for most of the show is recovering her lost love interest...oh, and that telekinesis she was developing in her TM2 body? Surprise surprise, that's translated into a poorly-defined woman's-intuition power that's so hard to control, she appears to be suffering from migraines, hysteria, and fainting spells! Which can work, IF we're talking Cheetara, Reiko on Galaxy Rangers, or that cat on Bucky O' Hare, but that's NOT who Blackarachnia was. It especially stunk for techie duties to be transferred from her to Rattrap (apparently little guys need that, as they're totally incapable of badassery :roll: ), since she was the only tech-minded character in Beast Wars whose skill gradually improved with experience throughout the series...so functioning as Klingon eye-candy with a tough, no-nonsense attitude was the natural end result of her character development. BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARF!!!

As for this event, however, since Legends "continuity" is just an intentionally convoluted joke, the absolute worst aspect of Beast Machines, how its retcons interacted with the Sunbow cartoon in order for its inappropriate story to function, is pretty much negated, so this might actually be a little fun.

Honestly, Beast Machines is the most highbrow and most tightly-written series we've ever gotten. From start to finish, it feels like the writers knew exactly what they were doing going into it with very little of anything feeling like it was forced in at the 11th hour (there are traces of such things in there, but it's exceedingly minor). It took its audience seriously and engaged us on an intellectual and philosophical level (You know, for kids! :P ), asking and exploring big questions and high-minded concepts that no other series (let alone other kids cartoons of the time) were willing to ask and explore. It dug deep into the soil of the lore to plant the seeds of its own mythos to add to all that came before. It took risks and pushed itself to show just how far it could go with its potential, revolutionizing the brand's mythology and forever changing it for years to come. 8)

Yet at the same time, Beast Machines greatly ignored the characterization of some of the most beloved characters from the Beast Wars series, if not of all Transformers characters. I think had they paid more attention to how these characters were portrayed in Beast Wars, that Beast Machines wouldn't feel like such a disconnect from its predecessor.

That, and that's a downer of a series with everyone bitching and complaining and moaning and groaning. I like Beast Machines but it has a ton of flaws ... whereas with Beast Wars, my biggest complaint is the lack of shadows which irks me greatly while watching it.

Our friends at DeNA have announced the latest chapter in the Transformers: Legends mobile device game, "Unicron Returns".

TRANSFORMERS Legends “Unicron Returns” has begun!

Image

STARSCREAM, still a ghost, makes a deal with UNICRON for a new body. He goes to the DECEPTICON base, and takes control of SCOURGE and CYCLONUS. He leads the two DECEPTICONS to Earth, so they can fulfill UNICRON’S commands - for new eyes and a new body.

While SERGEANT KUP and SLINGSHOT fly to Earth to do a routine inspection on AUTOBOT CITY, SCOURGE and CYCLONUS, spurred on by STARSCREAM, head there to steal the mighty METROPLEX’S eyes.

After a fierce battle, the DECEPTICONS manage to escape with one, and head to their next task, to bring TRYPTICON’S body to UNICRON. The AUTOBOTS follow, intent on preventing whatever mayhem they intend to perpetrate.

Will they be able to stop STARSCREAM from reviving the galaxy’s greatest threat? Will UNICRON rise again? Find out on TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS – “UNICRON RETURNS”!

Another update from the DeNA Mobage Transformers Legends mobile game, announcing their new 'More than Meets the Eye' episode, live from today! Check it out below.

BUMBLEBEE and CLIFFJUMPER are returning from an energon scavenging run, unaware that their progress is being monitored from the sky. With a single blast from his weapon, SUNSTORM, DIRGE, BITSTREAM and HOT LINK begin their chase, eager to take the AUTOBOTS’ energon for their own purposes.

The cat and mouse game continues through the valleys of Cybertron, as the DECEPTICONS rain down destruction from above. The AUTOBOTS, outnumbered and outgunned, race desperately towards their one remaining sanctuary – Iacon.

Will the DECEPTICONS destroy the AUTOBOTS’ last hope? Or will BUMBLEBEE and CLIFFJUMPER be able to escape with their precious cargo? Find out on TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS – “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE”!

Well, it's all fan fiction, isn't it? :???:

Anything not written by Furman, or Budiansky, or the myriad TV writers from the original cartoon was created by those who inherited the franchise after them; many of whom I assume to be fans, and many of whom created new fictions (including the concept of a 'multiverse'). Even the Dreamwave comics you held up as outstanding G1 fiction were written by two completely new writers and told an entirely different story still based in the very broad 'G1 continuity.'

So really, is your statement meant to be an insult? Because taken literally, the same could be said about everything made after 1984/1987.

Actually it was praise... for Transformers Legends! The game is a mess, but at least they respect the franchise. IDW MTMTE is nothing but Doctor Who or Divine Comedy starring Transformers. Fanfic no different from a Kup vs. Arcee porno strip.

No feeding the trolls, please. With a name like 1984forever, you have to know that anything not based on, and slavishy homaging the very first season of the cartoon is blasphemy to him.

I find it interesting this is comes hot off the heals of the Nacelle conversation. The fact that it's Dirge is equally as interesting, as that's the mold they used for him.

Or, maybe not.

I haven't played this in a long time, but I did enjoy it for the time I did. The GI Joe equivalent (Battlegrounds I think it's called) was also pretty neat. The heavy monetization got to be a bit much after awhile.

This! I was VERY excited to see this new event and quite disappointed to find out it was Superbee and Redbee...it would've been nice to have Wheeljack's Cybertronian mode, and have Bee as the sidekick! :D

However, I enjoy this sort of event much more than the Team one we just had. On the upside of said Team event, I got a Unicron head card as a reward. I see why the dude eats planets, he's devouring my Transmetal and warrior cards and his level's barely moving!

The mobile device game Transformers Legends has a new episode this week, shifting the focus on the softer side of the robotic franchise - read on below for more information on 'Only Human'!

Image


RODIMUS, ULTRA MAGNUS, SPRINGER and ARCEE foil VICTOR DRATH’S attempt to steal the powerful, but volatile, Newtronium. DRATH, fed up with their constant interference, calls on the mercenary OLD SNAKE for help.

VICTOR DRATH lures the AUTOBOTS into a trap, and using OLD SNAKE’S technology, transfers their minds into the bodies of synthoids. OLD SNAKE convinces DRATH to use the now-mindless AUTOBOTS as weapons, by outfitting them with controls.

Meanwhile, as the RODIMUS and his friends get used to their new bodies, they learn that DRATH and OLD SNAKE are going to use their bodies to blow up AUTOBOT CITY. It is now a race against time, as the now-human AUTOBOTS try to warn the city and stop VICTOR DRATH’S forces.

Will the AUTOBOTS reclaim their bodies, or will they be trapped in them forever? Will OLD SNAKE be able to help VICTOR DRATH destroy AUTOBOT CITY and claim his revenge? Find out on TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS – “ONLY HUMAN”!

Also, we want to wish a Happy 30th Birthday to Transformers!

    A quick question: is Springer on the battlefield? 'Cause I've reached the first Extreme-zone and it still shows me Ultra Magnus when it's Springer that I really want.

    Okay, does anyone else feel cheated with the last episode? Are we at least gonna get a do-over with the bugs fixed with this one?

    I didn't get my Springers and I wonder if anyone else did.

    Transformers: Legends Game Event - Cosmic Rust is now live.

    As MEGATRON, SOUNDWAVE, and the DECEPTICONS travel towards Cybertron, they find a planet with a gigantic AUTOBOT symbol that is visible from space. Upon closer inspection, they discover that the entire population has been wiped out, leaving behind only a powerful weapon, the Lightning Bug.

    MEGATRON takes the Lightning Bug, intending to use it on the AUTOBOTS, unaware of the creeping doom that it has inflicted him and his troops. He soon discovers the cosmic rust, and steals the Corrostop compound that the AUTOBOTS had developed in order to cure it. Now immune to the infection, he decides to use it upon the hated AUTOBOTS.

    The AUTOBOTS, now inflicted and without their own supply of Corrostop, turn to their Matter Replicator for a solution. Unfortunately, the only remaining Corrostop is on the Statue of Liberty, which was used for the original tests, and it is now blockaded by DRAG STRIP, LASERBEAK and the other DECEPTICONS.

    Will BEACHCOMBER and AUTOBOT GEARS be able to get past the DECEPTICON blockades and reach the Statue of Liberty in time for the AUTOBOTS to replicate the Corrostop? Or will the fate of the AUTOBOTS to be to rust into nothingness? Find out on TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS – “COSMIC RUST”!

    The newest Transformers: Legends mobile event "Wreckage" has begun. Looks like Megatron might be in trouble. Check the artwork and description for the event below.

    Image

    Stranded on the planet Junk, MEGATRON fights for his very existence as the JUNKIONS swarm forth, ready to feast on him. Led by their savage leader, WRECK-GAR, the ravenous beings chase him with a ferocity never before seen by the DECEPTICON leader.

    Meanwhile, not too far from the carnage, SLUDGE and SWOOP search Junk for their missing leader, GRIMLOCK. Concerned with the rumors that the natives eat Cybertronians, and despite their skills as warriors, they hurry along, wanting to get off-planet as soon as possible.

    While the Dinobots search for GRIMLOCK, and MEGATRON fights for his life, SKYWARP scours the planet for his leader, hoping to find him and prove his loyalty… and hoping that the myths about the planet’s inhabitants aren’t true.

    Will the Junkions and their maniacal chief tear MEGATRON to pieces, or will he dominate the landscape and rule them all? Can SLUDGE and SWOOP find their missing leader? Find out on TRANSFORMERS LEGENDS – “WRECKAGE”!

    That's an interesting twist on the Junkion story. Its a melting of the comics and cartoons.

    I see the comic reference, but what's the cartoon reference?

    Can't decide how I like the artwork events. I feel like the B&W clashes with all the colors of the normal cards...

    If I have an Autobot team, do I use all my Decepticon card to upgrade my Autobot cards? You can't fight with Decepticon cards if you have an Autobot deck. Right?

    How do you do this? My team is Autobots. I only get the options of balanced, attack, defense, etc. When I pick one, it's always a team of Autobots again.

    your best cards are probably just all Autobots.

    Why do they make games so complicated these days? Why can't they make it like checkers, or poker?

    Is collecting G1 Transformers Legends cards as satisfying as collecting G1 Transformers toys?
