I'm just going to wait for CN to actually air it, since I still have the whole last season of RID to catch up on (my DVR decided it didn't like its time slot for some reason).

After watching this, I feel the show has promise. While I give Bee's voice actor credit for being able to pull off so many different voices, I found the whole gag just irritating. I think he has a great voice and hope they eventually drop the radio speak thing so he can just deliver normal lines. My only other contention is the voices for the two seekers. They both sound like angsty teenagers and are in no way intimidating. Decepticons in previous shows were so memorable because they were so delightfully villainous. Thundercracker just sounds like a dweeb! Beyond that, the animation is decent. The sound effects are good too. I'm going to keep watching and see how the show evolves over time.

I enjoyed those first 2 episodes! I think this could have promise. And the Bee voices are kinda really fun if overused at this point

I finally found the episodes online to watch:

Episode 1, "Fractured" - https://vk.com/video-56732771_456239800

Episode 2, "Memory" - https://vk.com/video-56732771_456239801


Now that I've seen them... Not bad. I like that there appears to be a serialized ongoing narrative that carries over from episode to episode, as I was expecting this to be like most other 11-minute shows on Cartoon Network that usually tend to be done-in-one standalone stories, but this instead seems to have nixed that formula.

It does seem to draw heavy inspiration from the backstory of the Aligned media, as though it's drawing influence from the Binder of Revelation despite obviously not being an Aligned show. The AllSpark was launched into space a long time ago, Optimus Prime leads a team of Autobots aboard the Ark to go find it, some other Autobots stay behind to continue defending Cybertron from the Decepticons while the Ark crew is gone, there's a space bridge in orbit above Earth, and more. Plus Windblade's Cityspeaker ordeal from IDW.

The Decepticon voice acting is a bit awkward. It's gonna take some getting used to, but the more we get to hear from them, the more their acting may improve over time. Also, the female purple Seeker is named Nova Storm.

Of course, Bumblebee's radio speech is the elephant in the room, with his natural voice an indisputable breath if fresh air by comparison. However, I don't feel that his radio speech is as bad as it could have been. As it's all being done by one person, Jeremy Levy, I liken his performance to those of Robin Williams and Dan Castellaneta back when they each voiced the Genie from Aladdin, in that they each had to do a ton of vocal impressions and improv work to really sell their performances as the Genie. Jeremy Levy has to basically do the same for Bumblebee's radio speech. The big difference in this case is just that, simply put, Levy is not Williams or Castellaneta. He does not have either their magnetic charm or their star iconography. People would applaud at Williams and Castellaneta for how they each played the Genie even in moments where the Genie fell flat because people knew who Robin Williams and Dan Castellaneta were and already liked them as they were even before being cast into that role. Jeremy Levy, meanwhile, is a relatively new name to the acting world, so he's fighting an uphill battle from the get-go with having to do all of these impressions and make them not only work but also likable and entertaining. Unhelpful in this task is how radio-speech Bumblebee is already looked down upon by the fandom as a tired old gimmick that many have felt has overstayed its welcome, so it was a doomed position for Levy from the start as far as those critical of the radio-speech quirk in and of itself were concerned. Nevertheless, I feel that he served his role well enough to pull it off to the best of his abilities. It's clear that the gimmick is here to stay, but as Episode 2 has shown, it is not the sole form of communication that we will be receiving in this show. So those still groaning over it will at least have the normal talking parts of this show to look forward to.

With that said, for me, the worst this about this show has got to be the eyes, especially Windblade's. The eyes are just so big and yet so blankly devoid of any details that they just look so lifeless and inexpressive. If they didn't want to give anyone pupils and irises to give the eyes more expression like we've seen in so many other series, what they should have done was make the eyes much smaller like how those of the characters from the G1 cartoons, JBW cartoons, Car Robots, and the Unicron Trilogy cartoons were.

Overall, this was a decent first outing for the series. It's got me intrigued enough to see where it'll keep going and for how long.

I honestly didn't expect it to as mature as it is. I thought this would be extremely geared towards little kids, but it's not. It actually appears to be setting up a good plot and I'm definitely interested in watching more of this. Heck, it actually gave me an idea for another Transformers show, but I'm gonna keep this idea close to my chest for the time being...

Here's the original claim from last night:
Yes, the cable box version of Xfinity OnDemand has the third episode, or at least it does for me as a subscriber here in New Haven, Connecticut, while the website version only has the first two.

It may have been a timing thing. I tried yesterday morning as well, and the only thing "Transformers" related on the CN main site was RiD15. (I didn't want to DL another app, so I figured I'd just wait for some other site to get it) They might have added the Cyberverse stuff later in the day, in any case, it appears all links now are up and running. (I even tried a search for Transformers this morning, and NOW both shows are listed instead of just RiD15

There is no real urgency for me to watch this, as it really isn't my thing, I want to watch with my kids. They are the intended audience (though my son is 12 and was very much bored with RiD15 towards the end). I wonder how they will react to this show.

^ I think he meant straight streaming from the CN site though, with no need for facebook, or an app. It wasn't on CN main site yesterday morning, but it is now, probably got updated sometime, late morning, or mid-day yesterday

So should we start a thread about what Windblade DOESN'T have in her back?

I'm betting we just discovered where Optimus' trailer goes when he transforms...
