Thanks to Seibertronian Sabrblade, we have news that the 7th episode of the Transformers: Cyberverse TV show, titled "Cube" is now online at the Hasbro Youtube station! This episode gives us a look at pre-war Cybertron, as it recounts how Windblade and Bumblebee met, with the game Cube (which Bee is a big fan of) serving as the setting. It also gives us a look at the society of pre-war Cybertron, among which is the setting that the flyers are among the elite of the society.

Check out the video below, and let us know what you think of this new episode, and what you think of the show in general, in the comments section below!

Bumblebee learns how he first met Windblade and they both discover that Starscream is going to sabotage the Cube Championship game.

And that makes 2 episodes in a row with what appeared to be a State Games homage! Since Starscream was the puppet-governor of Vos (I've seen that repeated numerous times, but it's not in the actual text story. Was that tidbit in "The Facts" booklet?), and their delegation sent some 'bots including the Starscream-esque Tornado to bomb Tarn's power plant during the gladiatorial games, Starscream, Ramjet, and Dirge tampering with a cube during a big game sure seems like a retelling with more familiar characters. Add in one team hailing form Polyhex, and this show just sounds more Marvelous every week!

Though granted, their tampering making the cube go berserk and injure the players may be just as much an homage to Dobby messing with the Bludger during that Quidditch match...

I most definitely saw this as an homage/callback to quiditch

...doesn't Starscream know that Bumblebee's on that ship? The one they've been in for several episodes now? I wouldnt be hanging around reliving the glory days of CUBE if that were the case, but I suppose it makes sense that Windblade might wanna show Bumblebee this particular memory, seeing as how it's where they first met and all.

But other than a scene explaining this, there's no scene after the fact showing why this is important in any way to the characters. The episode just ends with another joke.

Also, Bumblebee is racist towards jets unless it's a pretty girl? :lol:

While I get the argument that it's less obtrusive for the story and for animation purposes, but non of the other jet form characters exhibit this (so far), and all prior incarnations of Windblade have never been shown to be able to do it either.
I don't know why, but it just niggles at me why this is a thing when wing kibble is a staple of jet formers.
Thundercracker had his wings retracted in part of Episode 1.

Did not spot that. Still the whole thing of retractable wings seems... unusual....

Onto another point, it is interesting how they've already incorporated the more recent colonies thing into the pre-war story.

I get a real strong feeling that this show is like a second attempt at adapting the compiled Cybertronian history given by the Binder of Revelation (which likewise took the colonies idea from the Cybertron cartoon of 13 years ago) into a form of story-told fiction, after the first attempt to do so by the Aligned continuity met its end prematurely.

He does, but often times the ship is near electric plants (I think that's what it was) so its signals can be jammed. They've tried to make a point that they are being hunted, but the scout ship is hard to find thanks to Windblade trying to actually hide it.

And it is more of a personal connection episode, and considering what happens in the next episode, a nice light hearted episode that also shows some of Cybertron Pre-war and gives us an idea that the modism existed here, adding more detail as to why Cybertron needed change and thus the war.

So Bumblebee isn't really racist, more like he has a history with the jets and the jets tend to be the elites of the society.

If Megaton was against the idea of elitism (implied by him using “till all are one” in his rally speech), how the heck did Starscream end up on his side instead of forming his own third faction?

Also, I like how we now kinda have an idea on why Cybertronian society needed to be reformed

Really glad that Dirge and Ramjet were referred to by name. Now that means they're more likely to get toys than other characters. I know it's just wishful thinking, but I want more Conehead toys!

Do you happen to know when on Saturdays? Perhaps the schedule I'm looking at is erroneous. (see below).
That's the Pacific Time schedule. It's on Saturdays at 6:30am Eastern Time, three hours ahead of 6:30am Pacific Time.


Forgive me, because I haven't had cable TV in about a decade but...Last time I did, most carriers had a East Coast & West Coast Feed. I remember distinctly having 2 Cartoon Networks. --As many have said, it seems to be that this show is made more for streaming, and that IS the future, however....I'd think it absurd that it would ONLY air at 3:30am on Saturday mornings on the west coast. I mean I know CN is screwed up, but if that is the case, its way worse than I ever imagined.

Hey did any of you non-Canadians get to watch the next two episodes, "Shadowstriker" (episode 9) and "Maccadam's" (episode 10)? If so, how?

Well, up until now, I hadn't watched them. But after reading your post, I went looking and found them both on Dailymotion:

Episode 9 - https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6vih1d

Episode 10 - https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6vih1e

And IMHO, the Maccadam's episode is the best one of this show yet! It's awesome!

Thanks! Funny enough, I ended up finding these two episodes before I saw your reply! But I'd have to agree, Maccadam's was a great episode! I liked Shadowstriker too!

It's nice to see that there is a reason Shadowstriker is a mish-mesh of parts other than because Shockwave experimented on her.

Agreed that "Macsadam's" is the best episode of the series so far.

And that the reason also ties into her rivalry/hatred of Bumblebee.

Round Table Review for Transformers Cyberverse Episodes 7 and 8

Episode 7 Cube

Synopsis: Bumblebee learns how he first met Windblade and relives a Golden Age encounter with a young Starscream and his Seekers.

Image

What we liked best

I find it super cool how this show really just embraces all of what may be called G1 into one big package. In this episode we saw that Windblade retained everything we know of her through the IDW comics,like her being a city speaker, comes from caminus - William-James88

I love the idea of Cube, a sport that could be the cybertronian equivalent of football (soccer for US readers!) and a nice introduction for how Windblade met Bee. - ZeroWolf

We got to see Starscream shine, not as a backstabbing weasel, but as an impatient and devious rascal! It was also nice seeing more of the culture aspect of Transformers, since we saw a game of Cube (a mix between rugby and, funnily enough, the fictional Quidditch). Here, we get to see how Autobots and Decepticons used to act like together before the war, something that is more apparent in the later episode "Maccadam's." Something else nice was the appearance of two of the Coneheads (besides a cameo in "Allspark"). And hey, Windblade is from Caminus in this continuity too! And there was this bot that looked like Trailbreaker. I can go on... - notirishman


What we liked least

The main confrontation here is Bumblebee and Windblade vs Starscream, Ramjet and Dirge. Now that sounds like par for the course for a Transformers cartoon, but my problem with taht is that it was a flashback sequence from before the war. After the previous episode, Megatron is my Hero, went out of its way to show that it was not always the same old story and that villains were not always villains, we get this episode here that just discards all that. Starscream and his goons were always villains, which is pretty dull. - William-James88

That not much thought was actually put into Cube past the concept. This would have been a perfect chance to put some cameos into the teams. You could have had future Decepticons and Autobots on the same team, enhancing the idea that the war really separated everyone into two sides. - ZeroWolf

While it was cool seeing the Coneheads, they didn't speak at all... like at all. Also, Bumblebee is totally jet-cist. - notirishman

Image

Our overall thoughts

I found this episode rather dull in general since I did not care much for the backdrop being a Cybertronian Quittish game. I did like seeing Dirge and Ramjet, despite of course making them act just as goons in an era where we could have seen something more interesting. - William-james88

A fun but flawed episode, while the whole subplot with Starscream could have been done away with, it had its moments, I'll echo Williams comments here about Windblades integration with a lot of her IDW backstory appearing, I love it. I also like how it is just not even going to attempt to answer the question about why there is fembots, it just accepts it and moves on. While in terms of the on-going narrative, this episode adds nothing but it is a good character episode - Zerowolf

It was a good, well balanced, fun, episode! It was generally pretty entertaining!- notirishman


Episode 8 Terminal Velocity

Synopsis: Bumblebee explores a nightmarish memory of his visit to Velocitron while Windblade pilots the shuttle in a relentless dogfight with the Decepticon Seekers.

Image

What we liked best

It is always fun when any kids cartoon gives you some semblance of inner machinations, lie the writers really thought something through. I felt that here in a great scene where a group of Seekers, headed by Slipstream, go after Windblade who is piloting a Decepticon ship. The way Windblade looses them is by heading out into space where Slipstream cannot chase her, and I found that super cool since it revealed to me that in this rendition of the franchise, when you take on an earth based alt mode, you take on all its components, including its mechanical limitations. That was a great example of showing and not telling. I also loved everything with Blurr but I won't spoil anything. - William-james88

I liked the dual nature of the episode. We had a creepy showing at what cosmic rust was capable in one half, while in the other there was a frantic dogfight between Windblade and the Seekers. Also Hot Rod! There was also more use of the colony idea. - Zerowolf

Ooh, this episode took a dark turn. Pretty much, this episode introduces the "Plague of Rust" which you can think as Cosmic Rust, but on steroids. It is shown reducing planets to nothing! Blurr was a nice bonus to see, and so was Hot Rod, who are both well personalized in this episode. Back to what I was saying, this is a drastic dark turn for the show, as there is some major death. Also hey, Acid Storm and Thrust were in this episode! - notirishman


What we liked least

It's odd but for a show where the designs are very fun, they settled on the least exciting design for Hot Rod's alt mode. The character has always had a flashier and unique car mode that easily sets him apart from others. But here it is just a box. - William-james88

The dual nature is also a bit of a double edged sword as we could have done with seeing more about Velocitron. There was also a mystery hinted with the worker (who is a reuse of Wheeljacks animation model) but is never played upon. - Zerowolf

It was a bit anticlimactic. Since we didn't get attached to those who end up dieing within 10 minutes, their deaths didn't have much of an impact. We also only saw Blurr use his fast speed once, which I'm indifferent about, actually. But seriously, how did Bumblebee forget/ignore that there was a guy obviously holding a plague that kills planets?- notirishman

Image

Our overall thoughts

Much better than Episode 7 with nice nods to cosmic rust and some fun action set pieces. - William-james88

This is another filler episode or at least it seems it on the surface. Nothing is really advanced but we know a little bit more about the universe this series inhabits. Will we see more about the rust in future episodes? Was Hot Rod aboard the Ark? I can't wait to see what this show has in store. The dramatic shift between this episode and the last cannot be understated, ep 7 was bee and Windblade fighting to stop Starscream being a jerk, ep 8 was about bee and Windblade fighting to stay alive. - Zerowolf

It was a dark episode, but I liked it! But, I mean, Mr. Bee, I don't wanna go... - notirishman
