Totally agree.

Just finished the show. (Spoilers alone from here on out.) This was a fantastic finale, but I want Season 4 so badly right now! :-( I happened to love "The Other One", and his army of Tarns! Astrotrain desperately needs an Ultimate Class figure. I loved every moment, and the "Autobot All-Stars" at the end were awesome! Perceptor, Rack'n'Ruin, Whirl... Before, I just liked them. Now, I love them! Every character was awesome. I especially wanted more of "The Dweller", as well as a spin-off of Megatron and Dead End's adventures across the multiverse.
Standout characters who need Deluxe Class toys:
Soundwave
Wild Wheel
Shadow Striker
Dead End
Windblade
Whirl
Cheetor
Perceptor
There, I just gave myself an entire wave!

Indeed. Cyberverse season 3 is legit "Beast Wars good".

We finally have a U.S. television premiere date for Cyberverse season 3!

Story Editor Randolph Heard has Tweeted that the season's first four episodes, a four-parter titled "Battle for Cybertron", will be airing on the Sunday of March 15 as an early morning 1-hour special from 7:00am to 8:00am, with each part airing at 7:00am, 7:15am, 7:30am, and 7:45am (the original Tweet contains a typo of Part 4 airing at 7:30am).

Now, while "Battle for Cybertron" is, officially, considered a part of Season 3, it is technically more accurate to call it the proper finale of Season 2, as it wraps up that season's main storyline, while Episode 5 of Season 3 marks the true beginning of the third season's main storyline.

The show's creators are also pleading on Twitter for U.S. viewers (even those tho have already watched all of Season 3 online) to please tune in to the show's proper U.S. airing since more proper viewership of the TV airings may affect the chances of this show getting a follow up. And with just how epic and amazingly wonderful this third season is, right up there with the likes of Beast Wars and others of its level, I implore every one of you to do your best to tune in when you can so that Cyberverse may yet get a sequel, cuz it certainly deserves one after Season 3 proved its worth tenfold.

FYI, having a character with a so-called Australian accent is just downright patronising.

AEC Jetfire was bad enough, Meteorfire is just an insult.
And don't get me started on a gender swapped Cosmos.

He's a loving tribute to Steve Irwin. There's nothing insulting about that.

While I agree on the matter of gender-swapped Cosmos, Meteorfire is an amazing tribute to an amazing man, in terms of his accent and general larger-than-life persona.

Also, is it just me, or do the writers ship Grim and Arcee? 'Cause I keep noticing all these times that Grimlock comes to her rescue, or vice versa.

Yes, it is. The way the Australian accent portrayed is patronising. You don't get to sit there and tell me otherwise. You're not Australian.

That wasn't a tribute, that was a mockery.

Not sure if I would use the word insulting but I wasn't a fan of the accent either.

If your going to make a character with an accent it's probably best to get an actor who naturally has that accent, from what research I was able to do on Rich Orlow he isn't Australian.

No matter what the intention was for the character the execution is what matters and if it comes off as stereotypical even if not intentionally then it's still slightly "rude".

Edit: Since people are talking about her...female Cosmos is whack, not bad per say nor do I dislike the take but changing their gender is a tad strange, probably could of used a different character

Like Path Finder who's pretty much female Cosmos, actually I wonder if that was partially the inspiration for the gender swap.

This does remind me on how much I dislike the whole thing with how they deal with faceplates or rather the lack of them in the show overall, Wheeljack, Grimlock, Cosmos, etc, Faceplates are great to give characters more facial diversion, I don't mind if they have actual faces under the faceplate and the plates were just battle/mission modes but still.

I abhor gender swapping the majority of the time.

I acknowledge that in a lot of franchises there's more male characters than female characters, and the general consensus is to take an existing male character and make them female.

To do that in Transformers though makes no sense as the last few years we've seen a number of new female characters created and older existing ones background characters becoming foreground characters. So I really have to question the need to gender swap Cosmos when they've done a good job of introducing new female characters in the last few years. Missed opportunity, as you said, Pathfinder could have been used.

I abhor gender swapping the majority of the time.

I acknowledge that in a lot of franchises there's more male characters than female characters, and the general consensus is to take an existing male character and make them female.

To do that in Transformers though makes no sense as the last few years we've seen a number of new female characters created and older existing ones background characters becoming foreground characters. So I really have to question the need to gender swap Cosmos when they've done a good job of introducing new female characters in the last few years. Missed opportunity, as you said, Pathfinder could have been used.


Indeed, Gender Swapping works more for characters that are not really established in the first place, for example a better version of this whole thing is with Nova Storm since G1 Nova Storm the Rainmaker is a...non-character that it doesn't matter, then again apparently Cyberverse Nova Storm was originally male as well as potentially Skywarp according to concept art which explains why Skywarp didn't show up for the longest time...Only to also be gender swapped

Then again this Nova Storm only shares the name of the Rainmaker and pretty much nothing else besides being a Seeker so is it really a gender swap or just a nameinsert? (I have forgotten what the fan base calls it when a character has a traditional name but is nothing like the character like say Energon Ironhide)

This is jarring enough for Cosmos but what if that happened to bigger characters say Ironhide or Megatron, it would be even stranger right?

Strange? nah, just outright wrong. The only way it works is if the character has a defined history of being able to change genders.

Of course that brings up the whole debate that they don't have genders at all blah blah blah.

The episode though, was a low point in the season for me. I was able to put aside the gender swapping because the stereotyping was just glaringly in my face.

Overall the season was fantastic and Cyberverse is easily one of the best TF series (provided you ignore S1. :lol: )

Indeed, this season has really elevated the show for me after such an "eh" start, my problems with this one episode is mostly nitpicky at worse.

I'm just grateful to have another Transformers show with loads of characters and hope future shows keep on going with it, I like how big the Netflix show cast seems to be as well even if it turns out most of those characters are not important, bigger number of characters including generics makes the world feel more alive to me as well as being able to have more stakes because we all know that no Transformers show is going to off more then one or two main cast members.

I like that it gave twists to existing characters as well, like Perceptor being blinded but Daredevilling his way around.

But most of all, I like that we finally got Maccadam (Macca-dam not Macc-Adam dammit!). For so long he's been a part of TF mythology but we never got to meet him until this series, and they did a great job of bringing him to life.

Indeed! All very good things, I enjoyed seeing Perceptor once again in a show and Maccadam was indeed a treat, I personally liked how much of a presence Starscream and Perceptor had not to mention a lot of the season 3 cast like Dead End!

This show wasn't perfect or anything but it sure was fun! I think entertainment is the more important factor then quality not that the latter isn't important in cases but if I had to sacrifice one it would be the latter.
