If only Hasbro would be so kind to post on its YouTube channels the final episodes of season 1 in Italian... whose absence is made all the more frustrating by the presence of the whole second season.

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.

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.

You know, it just occurred to me that Blind Perceptor, by including him in the show, they're essentially adding a disabled character.

This is inclusiveness.

And it wasn't forced, it wasn't in your face, it just was. It seemed normal, natural even.

That's a sign of good writing. Many other shows that are trying to be inclusive could learn a thing or two from this show.

You know what, fully agreed on that.

I am sad there won't be a Cyberverse toy of that character either, he's the only member of the resistance to not get one
