Due some technical issues with last week's "Me, Grimlock, King!" installment of Transformers Legends DeNA has announced they will be re-running the episode this week. The episode starts today at 5:00.

Hey TRANSFORMERS Legends fans,

Last week the team episode “ME, GRIMLOCK, KING!” had issues that may have prevented players from fully enjoying the episode or earning the top reward card. We’ve decided to re-run this episode this week, Pre-registration will start Wednesday at 4pm and the episode will start Thursday at 5pm.

Episode cards earned in the last “ME, GRIMLOCK, KING!” episode; OPTIMUS PRIME, WHEELJACK, SHOCKWAVE, AND MEGATRON will get episode an bonus again and these cards will be available in the Space Bridge.

We hope this gives everyone a chance to play the episode without issues and get another chance at scoring that awesome Grimlock card.

Thanks!

-The TRANSFORMERS Legends team

That Cliffjumper uses the Classics toy body minus the silver flames, a :BOT: instead of a rubsign, and with a more Cliffjumper-y head:

And Jetfire uses the body of his upcoming Generations Leader class figure.

Starscream, however, seems to just be using his cartoon animation model.

I like that they're going for one of those obscure, but decent episodes. I don't mind if they continue, but as long as they don't do that horrible episode with the weird rhyming/singing alien people, I'll be fine.

Here's an update for those of you into the Transformers Legends mobile game, courtesy of Mobage's official Facebook page. A new event, including the usual exclusive art launched today: get ready for Autobot X! Check out more details below, and the mirrored image.

Spike was seriously hurt in a Decepticon assault, so his Autobot pals set his mind in the body of Autobot X to save his life. Alas, the Decepticons quickly turned the cyborg against his former friends. Will the Autobots rescue Spike before the cyborg destroys them first? Find out today in TRANSFORMERS: Legends – “AUTOBOT X”!

Well, making this particular event more enjoyable than watching the source material was probably a slam dunk.

Also appropriate that they waited until after TF Hero Mashers had been out for a few months. Making X topical now might just move a few sets.

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.
