    Nope, Hasbro is too concerned with making inoffensive crappy shows that appeal to babies or collectors rather than something interesting and different.

    What happened to honesty in advertising?

      They wanted Cliffjumper's death to feel important, like anyone can die in the show. Casting a celebrity VA and happening rather early on trips the effect though.

    Prime had extremely high highs, but also extremely low lows. On average, it wasn't all that great.
    RID15 is a better show, all things considered. Cyberverse also beats Prime.

    I just want a classic autobots vs decepticons like the original series and uncron saga. im tired of shit that takes itself too seriously and complete babyshit. thankfully the new energon verse comic is so far quite good at fulfilling what i want.

    Beast Wars: something fresh and new that changes everything forever
    Animated: honoring the past while building something new
    Prime: pretty great too

      Earthspark has some interesting ideas, but then the actual robot designs aren't terribly appealing and the bad ideas really stick out. It feels like the opposite of Cyberverse's first season which felt like going through the motions with the main plot, but some individual characters and side things were neat.

        The robot designs are great. The robot characters, in a vacuum, are all great. EarthSpark's problem is that the story writing is TERRIBLE.

        I keep trying to figure out what it reminds me of. One of the Hot Wheels shows no one remembers? That CGI Tonka trucks movie no one's heard of? Butt Ugly Martians? Something along those lines, except with a once-beloved IP attached to it.

          Everything about it just screams "belongs in the bargain bin". The robots look like they're from one of those weird imitation brands you'd find at dollar stores. The kids look like they're from Rapsittie Street, and them with the Terrans are basically the modern versions of Scott and T-Bob from MASK. The G1 segments look *almost* like the actual 80s show, but something's just off about it, it's like when those mid-2000s shows tried to look like anime but ended up looking like DeviantArt instead. The 80s references in general make me wonder if the show was made by one of those people who thought the whole Transformers brand stopped existing between G1 and the Bayverse. The idea that Megatron would just agree to a peace treaty because "he liked the sound of that" makes no sense whatsoever. He doesn't even act anything like Megatron, you could call him Jetfire or Ultra Magnus or Grindor and absolutely nothing would change. That one nonbinary Terran having to stop everything to educate the audience on proper pronoun usage was stupid, and I'm not going to pretend it wasn't. Mandroid feels less like a Transformers character, and more like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles villain who ended up in the wrong show by mistake. Why is there a character called Hashtag?

          I don't even know if anyone's watching it outside of the diehard fans. It's a show that says "This franchise has absolutely zero cultural relevance anymore."

            God Earthspark sucks, it’s wild to me that the deceptions who are supposed to be the main antagonist are relegated to being shuffled around monsters of the week.

              The government secret agency that is manipulating the Transformers for their own benefit, and a human mad scientist who manipulates them under the guise of helping for his own revenge.
              Maybe the second season will have Scorponok or someone come to Earth and beat up the Decepticon remnants to make them serve under him.

            Never watched MASK so I have no idea if your assessment is accurate. I really doubt that they are going to get Toei to animate with cels for a scene that was essentially a joke about this happening in the past, down to having intentional animation errors. The show has characters that are references to things between 87 and 2007, although one is more heavily influenced by the IDW comic incarnation than the Beast Wars show and the other is getting by because his namesake is the brother to the Swindle of his toyline. In general, there are a lot of things that seem to be trying to adapt back things from IDW when it was internet popular (even got Nick Roche to do some character designs, but I don't feel they translated well to 3D). If you have watched multiple Transformers series before, you should know that characters of the same name don't necessarily have the same personality. In the case of this Megatron, his defection was the result of the reason he was fighting for being lost and doing reassessment of goals. This has an interesting side effect on the Decepticons in the show since usually taking out the leader results in a power vacuum and lots of in-fighting, but here they have a common enemy in the traitor Megatron so the most you have are just desertion among dissent. Nightshade's gender identity definitely is handled poorly, but I'm not sure if it is possible to do correctly given the show is aimed at children who would have a weak idea of what "male" or "female" mean to begin with, even before considering the view of a Transformer instead of a human. Mandroid is strange to complain about since if you took Dr. Arkeville and Circuit Breaker and put them in a blender you would result in him. I will agree Hashtag is awful.

            >The G1 segments look *almost* like the actual 80s show
            The... segments that show up, like, twice? Very briefly?
            >The 80s references in general make me wonder if the show was made by one of those people who thought the whole Transformers brand stopped existing between G1 and the Bayverse.
            There is an episode all about Tarantulas.
            >The idea that Megatron would just agree to a peace treaty because "he liked the sound of that" makes no sense whatsoever. He doesn't even act anything like Megatron, you could call him Jetfire or Ultra Magnus or Grindor and absolutely nothing would change.
            EarthRise Megatron is by far not the first Megatron to agree to peace.
            >That one nonbinary Terran having to stop everything to educate the audience on proper pronoun usage was stupid, and I'm not going to pretend it wasn't.
            Literally never happens.
            >Mandroid feels less like a Transformers character
            Mandroid is fricking based on a G1 Transformers character.
            >Why is there a character called Hashtag?
            Because she turns into a communications truck and has internet powers. Why not?

            EarthSpark is by no means a good show, but your particular reasons for disliking it are bullshit. You should dislike it for the correct reasons.

            I cannot stress enough that the very first Transformer you see, see transform, and hear speak in Earthspark is a character from CYBERTRON.

              And the reason why he's paired up with Swinde is because Cybertron Swindle was a recolor of him.

    It was immediately outdone by its own sequel show.
