    So can we get some figures of Megatronus? That would be nice.

    This show is one of those "it's better if we didn't get it" kind of things. There's not a single redeemable thing about it and it's making the franchise look even worse in the public eye than it already is.

    looks good, all things considered. With mark hamill :D . This character, overlord & hot rod were the best parts about this show. sad we only saw them for 5 minutes before going to the pointless titan fight which i skipped over.


    Combiner wars was better than this crap.

    Hey guys been a while since Ive posted. Quick question please. I haven't watched this yet. Will there be a dvd release for this down the road or is streaming from a web site the only way this will ever get watched? Also, why are these awesome g1 series with this much star power not getting a tv airing? I loved tfs prime but jumped ship soon as I watched RID.

    This show and "official character design" are the type of things I cringe when I see promoted on Twitter or whatever because they have no redeamable qualities as others already said and I wuoldn't like my absolutely favorite franchise to be portaided that way to the public.
    Say what you want about the Bay movies but they have at least AMAZING effects and characters and every single robot scene is a work of art by an animation point of view.

    This, this is just horrible on all fronts, before this design for Megatronus you could have said that the CG models are AT LEAST good rapresentation of the character version in the story, but if they are going to create other primes like Solus that look like this... don't promote this, hide it and let people forget about it.

    so very clearly sometimes NOTHING is better than SOMETHING.

    This show is so bad it makes season 3 of G1 look like an Oscar-winning production.

    Instead of using their sizeable budget to create this garbage, why couldn't they have instead funded a comic series based on the toys, and maybe include a few issues with the figures?

    I know comics are not the medium most people reach for nowadays when it comes to the toy fiction but at least it would have given them more time to develop an interesting storyline. These things still look and feel fanboy-made.

    Be happy about what?

    A poorly written (and delivered) narrative that features absolutely none of the gimmicks from the toy lines it's meant to tell the story of? This incessant need to shoehorn characters in to it for the sake of their popularity alone? Or at least try their hardest to continue to push and tell you that characters are important even though they really aren't? A poorly animated (anyone can make cel-shaded 3D models these days) visual sequence that's choppier than amateur fan-made animations? The inability to actually animate transformations as the series went on?

    Shutting up and accepting something is dangerous. Voicing displeasure and criticizing poor decisions in production allows the possibility of change.

    I've been watching RiD2015 and it's overall fairly enjoyable. I don't understand why the same people didn't work on the Prime Wars series. The writers for Prime & RiD2015 clearly know how to create well-rounded stories.

    There's so much good material in IDW as well; you just have to compress it a bit, like the X-Men animated series did with the corpus of 80s & 90s comics.

    I know this show blows ass cheese, but I have to say how impressed I am at how many here know of Mazinger-Z. And the fact that no one’s called it by the horrible American sub name of Tranzor-Z is even more impressive.
    That has been the sole reason for me loving giant robots as a kid in Puerto Rico (we got the uncensored spanish version, so this was also my introduction to copious violence, he/she villains, decapitated floating heads and story lines in which the good guys don’t always win. Yeah. Kinda fucked me up in the best possible way. Lol) . From there it’s been nothing but Transformers, Mighty Orbots, Voltron, and so forth.

    Good job guys. Proud of you!

    I'm not too surprised. Mazinger is a bit more famous than his watered down American counterpart.

    Adam Beechen (Writer for RID2015) wrote the scripts for Titans Return and is writing both the story and scripts for Power of the Primes.

    Ha, you're right. Clearly something is off in the process, whether with Adam or with the producers

    ... this is exactly what came to mind when I first saw him... just really don't like that helmet design on anyone to be honest... it just can't be taken seriously. XD

    To the sound of the Megatronus clock...
    It's a G1/Classics style version of Megatronus that homages a previous version of the character, so I am interested. I'm kind of starting to see TR Galvatron in it but that wouldn't make sense with the new gimmicks introduced.

    Not really, given the original Fallen was technically G1 since it was a cybertronian form and while it was pre-Earth contact...it's pretty goddamn badass.

    Additionally, I do recall that this is in fact a rejected War Within Megatron design (I know the Titanium 6" toy of Fallen is at least and he's notable for being one of the few actually good Titanium era figures) and it turns into a tank.

    There's nothing that lifeless Frankenstein's monster knockoff has over this design. NOTHING.

    I'm not saying this is any better than the previous toy or design of the Fallen, dude. That one has more going for it in several ways, such as looking like it transforms due to being based on the toy and not looking plain. Like, nothing I said ran counter to the idea that the original the Fallen looks good or better than this. A toy of this design released in the modern day would in fact be easier to attain for most than one released eleven years ago, however.

    That being said, this Megatronus is in fact a G1/Classics style version of the Fallen, simply one that looks different from the previous one. It is placed within a series that prominently features toys in a line following the stylistic choices of the G1/Classics based Generations line. Megatronus just isn't one for consistency in design.
