So, we'll finally see why Shadowstriker hates Bumblebee so much, as seen in the other flashbacks we've seen so far.

I'm already getting tired of seeing the Decepticons doing the following in EVERY scene:

1) One and/or a gang of them land and clench their fists, gritting their teeth and looking threatening.

2) They brandish GUNS. LOTS of guns. Guns mounted on every arm and wrist module. Guns atop guns atop guns atop guns, popping out all over them.

3) Then they totally IGNORE all their guns and run forward to try and PUNCH the Autobots.

Come on you writers - what the bleep? I mean - what the bleepity-bleepity-bleep-bleep-BLEEP???

Thanks to fellow Seibertronians Sabrblade and Ig89ninja keeping an eye on all the right channels, we have news of the latest episode from the animated series Transformers: Cyberverse - episode 6, 'Megatron is my hero' - is now on Hasbro’s YouTube channel, and viewable by those who are in the US due to region lock on the channel.

If you are, take a look below, and join in the discussion about the episode and the series in general in the Energon Pub discussion boards. Are you watching? Let us know!

While I wasn't too impressed by this series at first (I went out of my way to finish up RID first because I incorrectly thought Cyberverse was a direct sequel, so confusion was a part of it), it just keeps getting better and better. The 11 minute format is problematic for telling stories that are neither too serialized nor self-contained, but the 'Bumblebee's mind-blowers' structure was actually a stroke of genius for adapting to the truncated format. Maybe they learned from the mistakes of Machinima?

And THIS episode was simply MARVELous! They actually homaged State Games! (Well, and IDW, but Megatron's rise to power there was also an homage to it) Bee regaining his earliest memories of Megs as his hero, then the memory of his hero ripping his voice box out several years later, all within 10 minutes, could not have been a better use of the available time for establishing who his enemies are, and why. (And it nicely homaged Orion Pax's character arc in War Dawn to boot!)

The only flaw, IMO, was that it still wasn't clear exactly what the war Megatron started was about, or what the Autobots initially thought he was going to do to make Cybertron a better place instead. Eliminating opposition before building a Decepticon army large enough to make a galactic empire is easy enough to understand, and they couldn't cram everything into one ep, so hopefully we'll get more details before too long.

And since using the allspark to crank out an unnatural amount of 'Cons carries shades of the G2 Cybertronian Empire's spawning process, again, things are looking marvelous all over. The only way this show could make me happier is if Jhiaxus actually showed up!

Now if the toyline could only give me a definitive scale for molds I'd want to collect all the male and female seekers in...

Ive been watching this series as the episodes drop and I feel it'd be a lot better if they spaced some things out more. This episode should have a been a two-parter, with the rise and fall of Megatron being better explained. The cliffhanger could have been bumblebee saying "Megatron is my Hero!" and then part two could have ended with the revelation that Megatron tore out his voicebox. Instead, it's all smashed into such a short timeframe that it isnt given enough time to set in. It just feels like Megatron decided to be bad out of nowhere and that suddenly a war was just happening with no buildup.

It really does feel like this show is a sort of "Take 2" on the lore that the previous brand team crafted for the Binder of Revelation, as a lot of the story elements that we've seen so far in this show (Bumblebee's damaged voice dealt by Megatron, the AllSpark being launched into space to keep it the out of Megatron's reach, the Ark being launched specifically to pursue the AllSpark, Megatron having been a gladiator who befriended Optimus and called for a political revolution before he and Optimus had a falling out and took opposing sides against each other, Optimus having once been a "file clerk", Shockwave being an eccentric yet creepy mad scientist, etc.) feel like they were lifted wholesale from the Aligned media (the novels, the Prime cartoon, the FOC game, and more).

Transformers Prime didn’t explained the origins of the war and why Megatron started it until the season ones finale

G1 didn’t do it till halfway through season 2 with war dawn. Two seasons of ‘decepticons are just bad’ and even that episode solidified that fact.

Animated never explained motives of Megatron and the deceptions at all.

Beast wars didn’t reveal Megatron motives till code of hero which was one of the last episodes in season 2

I like this for what it is--it is a neat little way to get all the beats of Neo-Generation 1 out to a younger audience, and it's clearly being written by someone who knows their stuff about Transformers. At the same time, I can't help but wish a bit more time was spent on making the bots seem a bit more "real" and that the dialogue wasn't as cardboard. That said, this is the closest we've gotten to a retelling of G1 in animated form.

Sure it did. He felt disgruntled over the Autobot domination of Cybertron that came about from the Decepticons having lost the Great War and set out to pursue the AllSpark so that he could harness its power into a weapon powerful enough for him take back Cybertron from what he viewed to be the oppressive tyranny of the Autobot government. And what's more is that he wasn't that far off, what with the rigid curfews, strict regulations, and heavily enforced sense of law and order that had been put into effect on the planet by the Elite Guard ever since word of renewed Decepticon activity hit Cybertron, and which was only further enforced when Longarm was exposed as Shockwave and Ultra Magnus was taking out of commission by the aforementioned Decepticon spy.

Okay? Thats not the issue im having here. My personal problem here is that it was handled much too quickly. It wasnt allowed the time it needed and was dealt with much too quickly imo. It jumped from Megatron being idolized to demonized in a matter of minutes.

It’s also the 6th episode of a series that’s gimmick is mainly flashbacks now to build the world. Also all the shows before have mostly explained stuff through dialogue that’s last only a couple seconds. This series is showing you the history. Do you really think this will be the only flashback we get to discuss this topic? This was an introduction to the decepticons through bumblebee. We’re going to get a lot more to flesh out the shows history like we’ve already been getting

That’s fan interpretation and stuff that was hinted at in the almanac but just by going off what the cartoon did for the sake of the common viewer the show never stated what the decepticons were or why Megatron started the war. The series opened using war dawn and saying there was a war and that’s all. Yes there are hints he wanted the allspark but it’s never explained why he wanted it other than “It’s powerful”

The first episode literally told us about the "Autobot tyranny" via Blackarachnia's snark and Megatron's desire to harness the AllSpark into a "powerful weapon" when he crush Starscream's wing. Later, Megs reiterated his revolutionary propaganda when he broadcast his being alive to all Decepticon channels throughout the cosmos in the third episode of Season 2, and then told the Constructicons in their debut episode about the Autobots having oppressives the Decepticons off Cybertron after the war was lost. We then saw the strict state of Cybertron in the penultimate episode of Season 3. This was all stated directly in the show itself.

I hate this ten minute format. this "episode" felt like the opening of an actual proper 30 minute long cartoon. just when i was getting into it, it ends.

Saying "This other series also did something similar" and "they can fill in the gaps later" doesnt excuse bad pacing, and the gimmicky narrative device doesnt change that fact. Just because development can come later doesnt mean that it shouldn't have come now. The scenes they showed were important, and they weren't merely teases. They show a huge event and get to a revelation to both Bumblebee, and the viewer, and it's given no setup to make the conclusion worthwhile because there isnt enough time in a single episode to do so. As I said in my initial post, they should have made it a two-parter, and hell I'll add that said hypothetical two-parter probably should have been a season finale.

And before I get the "It's a kids cartoon what do you expect" argument, I can use the same logic you've been using to justify that: So were all the others. I'm just saying, I feel these are valid criticisms of the show as a piece of entertainment in general.

Edit* Also, Megatron removing Bumblebee's voicebox so "He would never tell" was dumb. I mean, theyre robots. Im sure writing and typing are not only possible but commonplace. And also, Megatron revealed his plan to Bumblebee, his big plan, and Windblade wasnt given time to react to it at all so we dont know if she knew the whole time or not, because "Talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk"
