Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy - Netflix

I can't find much information out about this.. except it's based on the video game (which I haven't played).

It's on Netflix tho... so.. maybe?

War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron are two very good games, with a huge amount of fan service, and as much of the original cast as possible.

I'll give it a try.

I dunno if I'm being picky, but a lot of that dialogue seems off.

"This is the final days"... surely should be "these are the final days" or "this is the final day"?

Also using "this war" twice in 2 sentences

That's stuff I was told off for doing in secondary school like

Watching the first 2 episodes now...

Spoiler: I miss Peter Cullen and Frank Welker. Guess I was spoiled by Transformer Prime. The dialogue and delivery for Optimus seems very forced/stilted and overly dramatic. Disappointed with Soundwave's voice too.

Jetfire (though I always preferred the Skyfire name myself) as leader of the Seekers is an interesting one. Starscream as usual is trying to overthrow his superiors.

The first scene with Wheeljack and Bumblebee was a nice throwback to the G1 opener, with the almost role-reversal between them combined with not everyone having picked a side yet, or is currently on the "wrong" side.

I watched the whole thing but one thing I did wonder
Spoiler: They went back to the space bridge that Wheeljack and Bumblebee found when looking for energon, yet the energon seemed to disappear. Did I miss something or was it a different space bridge. Just when they kept on about needing energon, I just kept wondering why Wheeljack didn't mention all that energon

I'm not a big Transformers watcher, watching gen 1 as a kid, think the first season of Prime, occasional episode of others and the recent Prime Wars Trilogy.

But one thing I noticed with this is so many of them speak so slow that they could be sloths (as seen in Zootopia)

Finished this today have to say I enjoyed it. Nice prequel to gen 1. Very interested to see where they go from here.

Dialogue clunky and dramatic. Did enjoy the prime series.

Yep, finished it the other day and my impression didn't really improve. It was "OK" but I preferred (and still do) the voice acting, depth and animation style of Prime myself.

It was over very quickly too, and for all the talk of seeing the war on Cybertron, there wasn't very much action really. A few limited skimishes and lots of characters talking back n forth. The recent Bumblebee movie(or the WFC games a few years back) did it better.

When is the next season? Next year?

Wait now... so is Spoiler: Galvatron a separate character in this or are there time-travel shenanigans going on? I see Unicron in there too at the end.

Spoiler: Wouldn't be the first time for either, Target: 2006 is a famous Marvel story where a time displaced Galvatron helps Megatron wreck virtually every Transformer going including Rodimus. A newly powered up Powermaster Optimus manages to slow him down just long enough for the universe to take it's irritance with him messing stuff up out on on him.

In the sadly now defunct IDW -ATION continuity, Galvatron is very much a separate entity to Megatron.

Spoiler:
It was actually Time Wars when Galvatron (with Megatron in tow) went on a rampage - was a great multi-part series that. I have scans of all the UK/US G1 comics you see. It was the only way to finally get to read endings/beginnings to stories that just didn't show in the newsagent that week (Ahhh the 80s!) :p

Much prefer that one is the evolution of the other myself - although it's actually that point in the Movie (and the subsequent revenge against Starscream) that G1 took a dive IMO :(
