    Courtesy of the all too awesome Transformers Collectors' Club and the Uber Talented Trent Troop. I watched it, thought it was great, and will be watching it again to look for more easter eggs.

    Very nice can't wait to watch it!

    Edit: Ok saw it and it was nice to see it for free and I enjoyed hearing David Kaye as Megatron again that was very cool. I wish we could had Dinobot to speak a line or two but oh well I'm happy with this.

    I'm thankful it's not only for members of the Club, otherwise I'd never be able to see it! But since it's free for everybody to watch, I am now pinching it from my Temporary Internet Files.

    BTW, apparantly this is a prequel to the comic that came with the Dawn Of Future's Past boxset. Is there anywhere on the 'net that I can download scans of that comic? Specifically files that can be read by CDisplay?

    EDIT: Just finished pinching it - quite good, though I gotta ask, what was Tarantulas' alt mode in the comic I mentioned above? Cause the pic that I've seen doesn't quite match up with what the model was based on.

    Not bad at all. Starting out I thought they had the worst David Kaye impression I've ever heard, until I realized it was actually Cryotek talking.

    Cryotek sounds more than a little bit like the Grinch. :)

    So is Cryotek's Cybertronian form based off of Energon Shockblast?

    Nice! I wish Dinobot would have said a few things as well, being my fav from Beast Wars, oh well.

    Megatron betraying Cryotek was a nice touch for his well known selfish ambition.

    *200th post* YEEEESSSSS! lol

    There were some parts where I couldn't really tell what was going on,
    but overall I thought it was good.

    Good to hear kaye's Megatron again, and nice music at the end.

    I watched it, don't particularly get it. I know the apparent importance of the disk and all but meh.. I dunno.

    Editing was terrible, but the video itself was ok.

    it needed the other bw characters to say something, i'm pretty sure that Waspinator, terrorsaur and dinobot would of said something.

    Cryoteck's cybertronian mode is E-Shockblast? HOLY CRAP. I want that figure MADE. XD

    Very nice! I have to admit that there were times where it was too dark to notice what was going on... like my colors in the Megatron book, har har har! XD!!

    Not bad at all, and for a Club freebie, it was great.

    Love that it fits well into continuity, after a fashion.

    that was pretty neat, although at times it was too dark to really figure out what was going on. I'd love it if people dissect this for meanings/easter eggs/etc. it was interesting that it was done in a mid-90's animation style, so it looked perfect for a bw prequel. anyone notice that megatron transmitted over frequency X-9, ravage's number?

    The x-9 reference was about the only thing I caught, easter-egg wise.

    I'm STILL not crazy about the BW guys having vehicular modes on Cybertron, but Cryotek's new body was cool, and I LOVE that he had the Beast Machine's Navi (yes, he's the "Diagnostic Drone" but to me he's a Navi) as his pet instead of Cro. Trarantualas' body was a good choice he always looked better in his half-bike Metals body anyhow.

    Over all I felt it was long on well-intended but poorly-executed action and artsy-direction, but kinda short on substance. With a grand total of 10 minutes of run time, I could lived without all the dueling.

    More dialogue woulda helped, I think a half-way decent Dinobot/Waspinator/whoever impression woulda been better than not having anyone but Megatron and the fan-characters talk (Though Dirge is real, just Japanese, and I guess Tranantulas cackled a bit)

    Still, for a fan-production, very good, the animation and modelling approaches the level of early-mainframe, which even 10 years on is pretty impressive for an independent project.

    Glad to have seen it, will definitely add it to my TF video archive.

    At transformerscon last year, there was a guy who did a PERFECT Tarantulas. They should really have been farming the live script readings to get the voices for this.

    Haven't watched it all yet (I've skimmed a few bit of Part 2--Part 1 wouldn't load on YouTube). One "easter egg" I've found so far is at 1:27 in Part 2. I'm assuming that's Dinobot with Megatron (looks like him--but as I said, I haven't seen all of it or read the comic). It looks like Dinobot sticks a bomb or something on top of the shelves/drawers right after Megatron pulled something out. Dinobot hits it with his fist and it activates--if you look at it closely, they based its design on the "Energon Stars" from Transformers: Energon.

    I'm sure there's plenty more where that came from though.
