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.


Does i am the "snarky fan"?Maybe i'm paranoid like my comment about PAWlitic that has mysteriously dissapered,Trevor Knight felt forced to mention Sauron for cinephile marketing,you must know he's a reference to George Soros.Then,i talked about interracial promotion in the new movie but beetween a black and a jew.

About CYBERVERSE,i just lack enthousiasm.Can you say where the "overwhelming praise"come from?There's no message in that question.Did i missed something?

I thought first about feminism but even Grimlock is stronger than Bee,there's stil Shadowstriker who can attack him with hands.

Okay your first paragraph is a giant mess that’s makes no sense and I gave up trying to figure out. And this is from someone with dyslexia and has grammar problems himself.

As for your second. On any message board you can find people saying that as the series progressed it won them over and really got a sense of enthusiasm as the story began progressing.

The overpowered Windblade we talked about some time ago.I even remember a more recent scene where she take a big punch on her face and stand up like if nothing happened.

She’s a robot dude they’re not human beings. We’ve seen these characters been shot in the face, cut in half, fall from orbit, dumped in acid and lava, building fall on them. Who the hell cares if she’s punched in the face and gets back up.

Complaining about being punched in the face and getting back up like it was nothing? That is reaching for flaws to pathetic heights especially is you’re trying throw feminism at it.

And yeah your first paragraph in any sense but that’s fine. Most people who say that’ stuff don’t see the wrong but even with grammar. Like, holy crap. I hope you got a thesaurus for Christmas.

Your first paragraph didn't make sense because you went off on a tangent that had no bearing on anything anyone was taking about, especially since you went from what Travis Knight said in a bit about an idea he had for Megatron in the movie, to George Soros to the relationship the main humans have in the movie (except they don't as you'll see when you watch the movie) but none of this has anything to do with Cyberverse.

As for this cartoon, I really need to pull my finger out and finish the series, Christmas preparations have really knocked me for six.

Okay, seriously? Dude, when Travis Knight mentioned Sauron, he was talking about the main bad guy from Lord of the Rings, not some real world politician. This is Sauron:

No it isn't. Tolkien made the name up, deriving it from a word in a fictional language that he also invented for his stories. It has nothing to do with any real world person's name. To think otherwise is ridiculous.

I think you have it backwards...as certain people in certain circles refer to Mr Soros by that name. Because of Saurons role in the Lord of the Rings.

So Cyberverse! It’s a solid show. The run time is something I know people still gripe but I’m pretty happy with being able to watch an entire season in under 3 hours lol

It should mean we get a good price on the season sets... Mind you, if tradition persists, I'll have to look at importing the show as here in the UK we either get full seasons or we don't...i mean we never got Animated and I can't remember getting Prime season 3 and Predacons Rising either.

I still don’t even have RiD on any media but I’ll be honest. I didn’t like RID. I’ve tried to watch it. Several times but it’s up there with Victory as a show I cannot get into. I’ve honestly just skimmed through it and just watch the finales or episodes that I’ve looked up that sounded good. One series I don’t have but not separate to track down.

So, on the one hand, this does feel more like the kind of thing G1 Megatron woulda pulled in the 80s than the calm and collected Logician of Shockwave, but I LOVE this no-nonsense over the top but down to business Shockwave who just shows up and says “Okay, let’s just remove Humanity first, lock stock and barrel, and salvage whatever is left. It’s zany mad science, but yet it makes so much sense. It’s ironic that its the one show where the Humans ARENT a factor that takes the Decepticons to new levels of villainy.

Quick Reviews for Transformers Cyberverse Episodes 15-18 + Season 1 Review

Postby william-james88 » Sun Dec 30, 2018 10:37 pm

We will first go through the final episodes that we had not reviewed yet. When available we have the episode embedded within the article for your viewing pleasure. After the quick reviews from myself and fellow Seibertronian new staff member Notirishman, you will find our ovrall thoughts on season 1. Enjoy!

Cyberverse episode 15

King of the Dinosaurs

Summary: Windblade and Bee uncover a buried Autobot who turns out to be an old friend.

Before we get into my quick thoughts (which are not quick for this episode), it's best you take a look at the episode:



Quick Thoughts:

I have issues with this episode, very nerdy issues but it really makes me not enjoy this. So, we have seen Grimlock a lot so far in this series. And he looks as we would expect Grimlock to look, with all that obvious dinosaur kibble. Since this show takes its inspiration from everything that could be considered G1 in theme, there are lots of versions out there where Grimlock had a dino type alt mode in the war on Cybertron (FOC, IDW), so I without a doubt assumed he had a dino type alt mode whenever we saw him so far. But no, it turns out that it was just animators being very cheap (still today) since it was revealed in this episode that he only took on a dino mode when he arrived to earth at the time of Dinosaurs. Beyond that meaning that all that dino kibble we have seen so far makes not a lick of sense that also means that the war has been raging for 65 MILLION years without Bumblebee, Optimus, Grimlock and the like. Now 4 million years was always crazy in the original cartoon (like how do they even know there is still a war going on?) but at least some writers have tried to make some sense of it (I write more about that here). But 65 MILLION years, that's a nonsense number, especially when it looks like nothing changed. Shockwave is still against Bumblebee as he was 65 million years ago. It was just a pause for some characters while the rest fought and when they are reawoken it's like nothing happened. And I find that very hard to reconcile since one of the best aspects of this show is seeing Cybertron before the war with Shockwave and Soundwave being friends with Autobots. If so much changed in a few years with the war breaking out, why would nothing change in 65 million years?! And the worst part is this is all just to explain why Grimlock is a T-Rex which again, is nonsense since he is shown with that alt mode kibble before!!!! - William-James88

Quick Thoughts:
I like this one. I really like Grimlock in this show, and the "he's stupid in dino mode only" thing to appease G1 fans is actually quite smart, and puts an interesting spin on his character. It was also quite sad to see him distraught over the death of his dinosaur pals, though it seem they tied that up rather quickly. Still, good episode, even if not much happened. -notirishman


Cyberverse episode 16

The Extinction Event

Summary: The newly formed team of Autobots must stop Shockwave from destroying all life on the planet.

Quick Thoughts:
Image

Seriously though, if any of you were wondering if anything could be told in a 10 minute format, well here you go. You get Shockwave literally planning to destroy all life on earth and executing the plan. You don't even have to watch the previous episodes to enjoy this, this link is right below, have fun. This definitely made up for any troubles I had with the previous episode (which I will simply try to forget and move on from). - William-james88

This episode was also good. As opposed to the more slow pace of last episode, this episode moved fast. Shockwave's plan is introduced, then his plan commences, then the Autobots have to figure out how to stop it last minute, and they do. That's the thing, the resolution was last minute. The episode was leading up to this whole "extinction event," and it just abruptly ended. Still, this episode was enjoyable! -notirishman




Cyberverse episode 17

Awaken Sleeping Giants

Summary: The Autobot team finally discovers the location of the Ark.

Quick Thoughts: Coming out of an episode where Shockwave almost anihilates all organic life on earth, this one has much less going on. It's a race to get to the ark and very aerial combat heavy. It's fine but it offers nothing new aside from some X-Men cannonball action. Also, I find it really hard to understand why a Seeker's instinct when being hit or in danger when in air is to transform into their robot mode and plummet. And one last thing, I do like that Shockwave's mini me minions are so prominent in this season, it makes me feel way less guilty about having purchased both a warrior and ultra Schockwave figure. Now I can have the ultra as the main shockwave and the warrior in alt mode as his spy. - William-james88

This episode was very entertaining! However, there is one pickle in my onion, they found the location of the Ark, very quickly. Y'know, something they've been trying to figure out all season. But the group hug at the end was awesome. It was quite lovely. - notirishman




Cyberverse episode 18

Eruption

Summary: The Autobot team must fight its way through Shockwave and his Decepticons to defend the Ark and awaken Optimus Prime and the other Autobots.

Quick Thoughts: Once again, Shockwave just getting stuff done. No nonsense, no countdown, just annihilation. This time directly attacking all Autobots. I like seeing him both being up to his own machinations and also being the leader of the Decepticons. The all out brawl was fun and the finale really makes you wish the next episode was right around the corner. They better pay off that final shot. - William-james88

The finale! Well, I mean, it's a cliffhanger for season 2. But still, I liked it. The fight in the volcano was well done and entertaining to watch. And one of the ending shots with all the Autobots INCLUDING Rack'n'Ruin, and a cool little battle mask on Grimlock, was pretty great. Overall, great episode. -notirishman


Overall Thoughts on Season 1

This show is giving me high hopes for the future! 'Cause season 1 was awesome! I mean, yeah, it has flaws, but the season was entertaining, and getting to see characters like Rack'n'Ruin, and Maccadam were fun. Shockwave was a threatening villain, and newcomer Shadowstiker (mostly) had a great arc behind her. Overall, this season was a fun, and enjoyable, and pretty good. - notirishman

What Burn writes below is something I agree with. I do have a tad bit to add. For instance, I am still not on board with keeping Bumblebee's radio talk gimmick, especially since it makes no sense (if he is just pulling recordings from the air, isn't he advanced enough to just combine words from various recordings to make sentences?). I do recommend this show to all those who like Transformers, especially those who have been clamoring for a G1 reboot. This is exactly what that is. It uses everything under the G1 umbrella (IDW, Sunbow) to make a cohesive show while showing you elements from before the war, during the war on Cybertron and now. Plus I absolutely adore this rendition of Shockwave, it's perfect. Also, not one human, which I was perfectly fine and happy with. Looking forward to season 2 especially with the finale we got. - William-James88

Now, onto Burn's thoughts:

Let me preface this by saying that I was one of "those hater people", you know the sort, write a series off before watching it. I was one of them. From what I saw from the previews I was not impressed, and previews are like trailers, they tend to show the best bits.

This was the opposite, if anything, those previews were detrimental to marketing Cyberverse.

Initially I kept up each week, for four weeks ... then life got in the way. This week I found some time (mostly because of our house guest commandeering our big lounge TV) so I sat down in front of my trusty "personal computer", tracked down the episodes, and settled in.

I started by watching Episode 4, I was certain I had watched it but I figured after such a break it'd make for a good reminder of where I was at.

Let me just say this, present time Bumblebee and his radio speak is annoying. That's why the flashbacks work so well, it limits the radio speak and each memory is actually a really good individual story that feeds into the major story.

THIS CARTOON IS ACTUALLY GOOD

The writers have done a fantastic job drawing from various TF stories of the past. Was that just Rack 'n' Ruin? HELL YEAH IT WAS RACK 'N' RUIN!

And it turns out I've been pronouncing Maccadam wrong all these years. I don't know how I'm expected to pronounce it as "Macc-adams" as opposed to "Macca-dam"

While I feel that the two main Autobots, Bumblebee and Windblade, have received far too much exposure in other media, the writers have done a fantastic job of balancing out their on-screen time with other lesser known characters.

Shadowstriker and Maccadam have been given backstories where there was previously very little. A bunch of seekers who were animation errors/throw aways in G1 suddenly find themselves with characterization.

Grimlock ... wow, that is such a massive shift from what we're normally accustomed to, but a fun twist is added to the character by the time he joins Windblade and Bumblebee.

This is the sort of show that can appeal to old and new fans, older fans though may need to keep an open mind about things.

The animation style ... I think my biggest gripe with it is the hips, where it gives the look that they're wearing underwear on the outside. Otherwise, I have no real gripes with the animation.

Overall, I had my reservations about this series, but I've been pleasantly surprised by it. If you've had your reservations as well, give it a go, you may find yourself surprised by it. - Burn

They didn't. They weren't even sure Cybertron still existed until they were later contacted by Shockwave in the fourth episode, who himself wasn't even sure if Megatron was still alive after all that time either.

You've got to admire Shockwave's optimism. I would have given up hope after the first few weeks, never mind after 4 millions years. As for Megatron, there was not much else for him to do but continue his original plans then trying to re-establish contact with Cybertron. The Autobots, in turn, were almost always reactive rather than proactive, accomplishing little when compared to the creativity of Megatron's numerous & wildly variable schemes.

I really enjoyed the first season. Overall it was fantastic with not many low points for myself.

Maccadams remains my favorite, but the whole thing was fun. I'm super glad Rack'N'Ruin is also getting in on the fun
