IN ADDITION TO THE FIRST EP, There is an awesome ,almost 5 minute recap, of Combiner wars and Titan Returns by victor carolli, sorry I dont know how to spell his name , the original narrator of the g1 series on Tumbler , its not on go 90

for me it was must see

dont know how to link to it but look for Titans return recap, its 4 minutes 53 seconds

as for the ep, hell yeah I liked it. Only thing I didnt like was the arm is missing still on Victorian, but it makes sense since this follows pretty quickly after titans returns

I just wish there was a way that I could download and save these eps now.

At least the animation is smoother this time.

Just gonna say this episode shows why the dinobots should have been made at a larger scale.

this one was not that bad actually, compared to the previous series. though everyone headbanging when they talk gets a bit distracting, particularly in the scene with the close up of megatrons eyes. I find it odd that grimlock here looks like his masterpeice toy version in robot mode.

So...who's going to Drain the Swamp... ;)

Well I'm glad you deduced that somehow. I don't think it was obvious at all. Not saying you are wrong, just saying this first episode was probably the poorest setup for a series I've ever seen. I had no idea who Megatronus was supposed to be talking to. The parts with the Dinobots were ok, but corny. Also I know people's voices change over time, especially after 30+ years, but with all due respect, there's just something off about Berger's Grimlock. It sounds just like his own voice but more gravely, like many characters he used to voice on Garfield and Friends back in the 80's, or Kraven from the 90's Spider-Man. There was just something about Grimlock, originally, that made him stand out, and whatever it was, Berger either forgot it, or maybe just cant do it anymore. This would not be the first time I've heard this with a VA, and it may not be their fault, just noticing the difference.

Was it better than the first episode of CW & TR, sure I'll give it that, but that's not saying much. I guess we better buckle in, one down. 9 to go...

I think you're right and have been thinking the same thing recently. Making Volcanicus the titan would've allowed for a better looking combiner with better ratios all around. Predaking would've probably still looked a little off though if they had done him at the "normal size."

I mean, there's the fact that they showed Unicron's head at the beginning, which is pretty much a given that he'll end up playing some kind of role in this show based on how predictable the previous two series were, which in turn means that Megatronus is gonna end up not being the main big bad of the series after all, which then means that he'll have to have some kind of connection to the main big bad (Unicron) in order for him to still be relevant in this show.

And since Megatronus--The Fallen--was conceived as a minion of Unicron from the onset back in the Dreamwave days, his being Unicron's servant here would pretty much be the easiest route for this show to take, and we all should know by now not to expect anything more than the easy street from this show.

Thus, his talking at the beginning has gotta be with his master Unicron, and his talk of acolytes has to refer to Overlord (who was all ominous about something bad coming soon back in Titans Return, who corrupted Hot Rod into Rodimus Cron, and who seemed pleased by Megatronus's presence in that show's last episode) and Rodimus Cron (for obvious reasons given his name, and that his deco is based on the Rodimus Unicronus toy, whose Matrix accessory is the Unicron-based Matrix of Chaos).

Well, personally I'm all in favor of that character being less 'Megatronus Prime' and way more who he originally was when conceived and introduced to us back in the day: The Fallen.

That would make sense, except that this TF universe is establishing things that are somewhat different. Sure the love interest between Megatronus and Solus is established in a flashback. However the Requiem Blaster being part of a *triumvirate* of sacred relics (along with the Matrix and Enigma) is new, to me at least. Also the idea that Megatronus defeated Unicron previously is also a new take on things, unless there is some other version of these events I'm not familiar with. Of course it makes sense that Unicron being Evil, and Megatronus (The Fallen) would somehow become his servant. But why would you choose to serve one you defeated? It could just be poor script writing....

I sort of wonder if the toys coming before the series is to pay for the series before they air it? Because it seems kinda backwards that the toys are out before the episode. Back in the day the show was supposed to hype you up to buy the toys not the other way around.

Toys arriving in comparison to a show has always been a sliding scale. The entire 1984 line was released in the summer, the show did not start airing until September, and that was only the first 3 episodes. TF:TM movie toys were released shortly before the movie, but not before advertisements began to air.

Also you have scenarios like in Beast Wars. The Ultra Assortment of Rampage and Depthcharge came out during the summer of 1998. Rampage's first episode aired in February (5 months before the toy came out), and Depthcharge's first episode aired in November (4 months after the toy had already been out)....

Besides PotP will feature Predaking, Before his toy is released.

The "three relics" thing is likely just a cost-saving measure to avoid having to include every personal artifact of all thirteen Primes, instead just focusing on the three that are the most relevant to this series.

While the specifics are new, the idea of the specific member of a group of heroes who personally dealt the killing blow to a great evil being the one to later go bad and side with that evil is an idea that has been used many times over in fiction, Transformers or otherwise.

Optimus primall as well. Also I remember back in the cybertron show, nobody understood why Hasbro released a giant Starscream, until one year later where Starscream got bigger to fight Primus.

yeah and a lot of the Prime trilogy figues released have not been on the machinima show like superion and bruticus and most of all no titan masters besides the one and only Emissary!
and he never turned into Cerebros's head and never saw Cerebros period but only Fortress Maximus
so besides what we have seen so far i doubt we will even see the terrorcons
i would have really liked to have seen a Megatronus toy come out in this series

I hated the first season, it was pure crap. So I ignored the second season. This episode was getting good comments from people, so I took a look. Oh boy, our expectations have sunken really low. Firstly, the animation is still terrible, it feels super cheap. I understand other webseries, and especially web comics dont have much movement either, but at least they arent selling anything more than what they are and arent made by such a high profile studio.

The story, or wahtever I witnessed, also made no damn sense. I have no clue why the dinobots fought, especially when it was confirmed that they did indeed know who erceptor was. So why start drowning him. Also, the tall grass made for a terrible sense of scale. This looked more like a scene from I shrunk the kids.
