    "c'mon, let's wrap this up" and "now predaking is here too?!" feel almost self aware.

    this is the epitome of a shitshow. this is like someone putting flaming dog poop on your porch, and when you go to stomp it out they stab you and convince your wife to leave you.

    Spoiler alert:

    Menasor getting stomped in the nuts was pretty funny though.

    Yeah, I think that's what he said.

    Once this Prime Wars Trilogy thing is done, we can put it to rest with the Unicron Trilogy.

    I couldn't bring myself to watch it, so I read the synopsis on TFWiki.

    Seriously what does Hasbro have against Computron? Combiners in general, really. The individual components are never given the time of day, and they're all killed off TFTM-style because their toys are no longer sold because they're not part of the ongoing plot, to make room for the new toys new characters.

    I probably should’ve waited until all the episodes were out and watched this in one sitting.

    Moreso, I still feel that what Transformers needs now is Studio Trigger.

    With what's going on with Darling in the Franxxx I think some people want less Studio Trigger for a while.

    Don’t lump Armada and Cybertron in with Energon. Both of those shows are much better, and insanely better then any of the three Machinima shows. Cybertron also had one of the best toy lines the franchise has every seen.

    Wow, vengeance as a motivation? Overlord really is like Scorpion, but I mean they are both voiced by Patrick Seitz so...

    Also, I like how all the combiners died so I guess Overlord and Rodimus did something right. Though his introduction to his Unicronus persona is... questionable and kinda cringe. Also, why is Volcanicus nearly the same height as Predaking in the show? But noooo, Hasbro was like "okey gieys, we gon make them Titans!!! WEEEEEEE!!!

    I caught up with DarliFra right before episode fifteen, @The Mad Demobot, so I didn’t suffer some of those more maddening irresolutions.

    And, honestly, I thought I’d just wait for SSSS Gridman or Promare, but the fracas had me curious and I’ve been well rewarded for investigating.

    Also, I think the only show I gave up on with Trigger is Kiznavier, though I didn’t think I’d last more than a couple episodes. But, I do need to get around to Luluco and Little Witch Academia.

    Finally, putting all that aside, I’m pretty happy with the fact that the two combiners that might have some individualized personalization are beast-formers.

    In fact, it’s ~purrfect~ :p

    Something about it feels subpar. Yes, the voice acting and the visuals are part of the problem, but this one just seems to fall flat so far.

    The voices might've been annoying in Combiner Wars, but the story and characters were worth a darn by the end of it. Titans Return had its moments and a much better voice cast, but failed in the overall... It was boring. This? Feels like cosplay kids getting a chance to be their superheroes for a day.

    its not much praise, but I do think its better than the previous 2 instalments of the PRIME WARS TRILOGY

    Cremate it. The Unicron Trilogy looks like IDW compared to this wreck.

    Oh my that was bad. The dialog, the characterization.... All of it just seems off. Cajun Overlord? He should have sounded British. Rodimus Cron? This is all your fault Victorian? Just bad. I honestly don't think I can watch the rest of this.
