News Post: Adam Beechen Fan QandA - Transformers: Cyberverse And Robots In Disguise
@SeanTF1967 I think this will answer some of your questions.
@SilverOptimus Funny enough, I was the one asking Adam Beechen most of those questions!
Now we know why it's called RID.
Boy was it hard to sift through that format. I guess the only nitpick I have is not assigning characters and locations some names, even if just placeholders. I think names play a strong factor when it comes to creating coherent and expansive storyworlds, and it sometimes comes off as lazy when there is no official designation for an entity. I sometimes archive stuff, and I understand the struggle of documentation when there is no official name to identify a character/vehicle/etc. by.
LOL. That is cool.
Based on the above answers, the current season of RID (Season 3/4 a.k.a. Combiner Force) seems to be the finale of the series, then.
Earlier in the Q&A he mentions he supervised the writing of 71 episodes. Which would lead us up to the end of Combiner Force. I don't know if you want to add it to the news post or not, but I think it should be noted.
I can\'t figure that site out... can someone please post the other Q&A regarding RID for me?
He didn't reveal much because obviously he doesn't want to give out spoilers, but he did reveal somethings I found interesting that I will spoiler tag.
He revealed that Hasbro specifically requested Blurr be in several episodes and that while we won't see any more Rescue Bots crossover, we will see some familliar faces, by that I assume he means Team Prime. He also noted that he supervised the writing of 71 episodes which would make episode 26 of Combiner Force the finale episode of the series.
Even though RID's been quite the downgrade from Prime, it's been a welcome addition to the TF show lineup and I've enjoyed watching a lot of it (especially Season 1). I'm excited to see what Cyberverse brings, but from what we know about it so far it seems like it'll kinda be retelling old stories in a sense (e.g. G1 and Beast Wars... I think?). Really kinda been itching to see a new and original TF cartoon with a new cast of characters and such, plus a fresh toyline. That said, maybe Cyberverse will be different than it currently seems, but even if it isn't, that won't be a huge problem for me unless it reaches the lows of Combiner Wars (I have my reservations for Titans Return as well ). So I'm just hoping for a fun toyline and an enjoyable show, at the least.
Sad to see RID go. It was a serious upgrade of Prime alltough season two and especially 2,5 were a heavy drop in quality.
With season 3 we are going out with a bang however as the writing is back on par with season one.
Hope we are not actually getting more Prime cast dropping in, that would be dissapointing.
I would like to see that Team Prime join Team Bee to achieve some missions together,which I think it will be awesome.
So sad we are gonna say goodbye to RID,I really hope there will be a good ending to all of them.After all,they are family always and forever.
Every time I hear about what Hasbro\'s corporate side is doing, I am a little disappointed.
"It wasn't important to the story we were telling." But I'D love to know, especially the one about where the Fallen got his powers from.
I really hope they lessen the filler in the remaining 12 episodes.
What I'd really love to know is if that unidentified Decepticon Ratchet captured in Season 2.5 is a spoiler or not. (Airachnid?)
The last news on his website is from 2015... where is this Q/A then?
I'm waiting on him to respond to my questions
I dont know how anyone can call RID an upgrade... The only downside of TFP was the animation meant a smaller cast.
I'd take 20 Miko's and 100 Raf's before I'd ever want more after thought characters like Russell and his father.
Damn. No Warrior Springload, then. =/
Mods and TFW2005 staff, please help me out:
You WON'T spoil RID episodes, but you WILL spoil TCC subscription service shipments????
So a website that's arguably devoted to the TOYS has no problem spoiling toys? But animated programs need special spoiler warnings? Not cool.
I'm not criticizing, I'm perplexed. TFW's right to spoil surprise toy shipments was heavily defended, but you guys DON'T "spoil" TV programs? I suppose it's because you LITERALLY interpret "spoil" as it applies everywhere else: that is, you can spoil TV, but you cannot spoil anything else. Oye.
Separate names with a comma.
