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.

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 series has won me over, I'm a fan and I think this series as done really well, and I look forward to what's to come in season 2.

@PerfectVision what post are you on about that dissappeared? Also I'm not sure what you are on about with the feminism thing?

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.

I don't see how my first paragraph make no sense.

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.

There is other exemple of her effectiveness.Their fragility varry beetween continuity,be careful about that.

As i said,maybe it's just Bee who is weak.

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:

I understand but you must know his name is a reference,whatever if Travis know it,cinephile...

It's getting off topic too much,i apologize.

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

Guys, lets just drop this and get back to talking about the Cyberverse series. We will be having a season wrap up article soon, if anyone wants to contribute a quick paragraph about their thoughts on sewson 1, you can write it in this thread and let me know that it's ok to be used in the article.

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.

I was going to add my thoughts about the first season, then I saw all the off-topic bullshit and that's put me off.

Thanks guys. Imagine how many others feel that way.

“Extinction Event”

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. Where was this Shockwave in Prime?
