Its usually been 4 million years. While still high, it gets more and more incredulous that the war has not ended yet. Especially in this case where the leader was presumably absent for 65 million years.
Funnily enough, the Fall of Cybertron video was almost set 65 million years ago, in an attempt to justify the altmodes of that game's Dinobots. Matt Tieger claimed in a couple of interviews for the game that it was set 65 million years ago. Thankfully, the Fall of Cybertron prequel comics and Prime Beast Hunters comics each provided an in-universe source that put the game's timeframe as being "Thousands of years ago" rather than 65 million, with the FOC comics having that Shockwave look into Earth's past for inspiration when he created the Dinobots' altmodes, and thus effectively overriding Tieger's out-of-universe claim.

I like that route, its the same used in the G1 cartoon and beast wars. what also makes no sense is that Grimlock had all that dino kibble before he landed on earth 65 m years ago. Even my daughter was confused.
Also the show keeps changing Acid Storm's gender from show to show, its annoying as ****.

Everyone in this show has their Earth kibble/vehicle modes seen on Cybertron in the flashbacks. Grimlock's just continuing the trend, barring his in-universe new altmode. I guess the animators couldn't make separate Cybertronian-bodied character models for everybody.

Though, the G1 cartoon likewise had everyone with Earth kibble in their Cybertronian robot modes.

She looks female to me in both of these new episodes.

It really switches from one episode to the next. Would be nice if they got their **** together

Also, we know there are coneheads and we have seen them in flashbacks, so I dont know why Thrust is not a conehead in the present.

Quite liked the latest two episodes with Grimlock in, and it is an interesting route they're taking with his "inteligence" with this.

Well, I still care about those. I want OP vs Megs all day everyday, I just love that rivalry and those showdowns. If Hasbro is listening, please make more.

Really enjoyed the callback to Fall of Cybertron Grimlock. I wouldn't mind if Grimlock kept that sort of beast mode is brute mode deal, but robot mode is more articulate. It's a nice reference to FOC without making him the Hulk. but I really enjoy both Grimlocks

Acid Storm had the female voice (and VA) for the whole show, they didn't start using the female face 'til Siloed though.

So after reducing the 4 million year time gap to about 1 million in the Unicron Trilogy, IDW and the Bayniverse ironically eliminating it for TF arrival on present-day Earth while working more nebulous time gaps into prehistory, Animated reducing the time gap to 50 years, and Prime's Predacon prehistory perhaps perplexing us most of all after Unicron's reveal meant Earth had always had a connection to Cybertron...

...we finally get a TF universe with a straight-up +65 million year time gap to explain the Dinobots...all 1 of them.

Just seems long overdue, is all I'm saying.

And implies that all the searches for energon, the Ark, any Allsparks etc. really were totally blind, spanning the whole universe. Can't wait to see what all gets retconned into this huge time gap over the next 3 years or so!

But, that Megatron was neither half-dead from an accident nor hooked up to life support. That was his control harness that allowed him to control all of Cybertron in full totalitarian rule, seeing and hearing everything on the planet's surface Big Brother style.

He is phantomatic overall,that's his vibes.

BH Skylinx,he look squellettic but does he is really a zombie?
Some display advice:bipedial with dragon head and big hand,there's a gap beetween them and the arms sadly,i paint his eyes in dark violet but i could have choose black.

Whereas in the actual show itself, his beast mode looked wrecked because of all of his experimentations to get rid of it and its organic aspects.

Quickfire Reviews for Transformers Cyberverse Episodes 11-14

Postby william-james88 » Tue Dec 25, 2018 11:06 pm

While we started with roundtable reviews of episodes, as we got nearer to the end of the year it was not as easy to plan such articles. So for this batch, it's just me. For those who have some catching up to do as we near the finale, I have the youtube links right below the quick fire reviews.


Transformers: Cyberverse 11

Sabotage

Summary: Shockwave traps Bumblebee in a false memory designed to convince him he's a Decepticon.

Quick Thoughts: Shockwave has always been a rather underutilized villain in shows. Often on the sidelines. That is very contrasting to the comics where he has several times been an even bigger nemesis than Megatron himself. I really like the middle ground between those two extremes that this show takes. We have him as the diabolical scientist and as a looming threat but also getting his hands dirty for some immediate villainous treachery. My only problem is I think his plan was dumb, you would think someone that smart would come up with a plan that an amnesiac Bumblebee couldn't poke holes through in a matter of minutes.




Transformers: Cyberverse episode 12

Teletraan X

Summary: Windblade and Bumblebee trace an Autobot signal and find themselves lured into a trap set by Slipstream and her Seekers.

Quick Thoughts: I am not a fan of quirky characters, and that's what Teletraan X is. But hey, at least it's better than that Peter Dinklage drone from Destiny. It's cool to see the show come into it's own without relying on cool G1 fan wank flashbacks, though I find the seekers to not be that meaningful of threats. Also, while I do not care that Hasbro made Acid Storm female in this version, it gets quite frustrating to have the use a male seeker body for her.




Transformers: Cyberverse episode 13

Matrix of Leadership

Summary: Bee learns the meaning of leadership through three memories of Optimus Prime.

Quick Thoughts: Back to flashbacks, but I am not complaining. This is all the stuff a kid wants to see, Optimus being a bad ass (with no face removals). I also like seeing his Autobot light up shield since it makes it a fun gimmick kids can recreate with his toys, I am all for toy/show synergy. A fine episode but I still preferred the previous Optimus appearances.




Cyberverse episode 14

Siloed

Summary: The Seekers attempt to extract the location of the Ark from Windblade's memories.

Quick Thoughts: While the Maccadams episode is all kinds of special, I feel this might be my favourite. We get to see the show not dwell on flashbacks and focus on Windblade, a rather new character in Transformers lore. So it gives us a good look at what the show has to offer aside from all the fan oriented callbacks. And it is better WIndblade content than anything we have ever gotten in Machinima. I also love the Decepticon hierarchy and how scared the seekers are of Shockwave. The action was excellent and I love the little details, like how Windblade in jet mode has to do a slight circle to be able to escape vertically.

It’s no longer surprising anymore that when a transformers cartoon gets announced and when clips start rolling it’s just panned and hated by the fandom and does a full 180 eventually.

thats not a dig at you Will. Just something I have noticed now. 4-5 months ago before the release this series just loathed and now the first season has finished and it’s got overwhelming praise. There will always be that snarky fan here and there that will claim they could do better but over all it’s a solid series and is finally recognized for its merits.
