    Hated in the ending.

    There's no way in hell Victorian can beat Devastator w/o help from 2 more Autobot combiners at least. The good guys always win moto should be plausible.

    Noted.

    But still didn't like the ending. If you're going to put all that effort into something at least make it plausible and after looking at the first part of this, 6 constructicons needing to form Devastator because of one Autobot who isn't Grimlock, UM or OP is just absurd.

    Guy, it's just a toy advert made to promote a web series, made to promote a comic book, made to promote toys, quit overthinking it.

    That is way better than anything I\'ve seen in the cartoon; looks like a Bayformers sequence.

    No, he makes a good point.

    "Overthinking"? Is that what we call a good plot? :lol 

    I don't think anyone is mocking the excellent animation... it's just a question of what is happening within that animation that can use some constructive criticism.

    I enjoyed this much more than all the prior episodes with their stiff animation & voice-acting. I don't fault the Voice Actors, but the dialogue seems forced and ahem "robotic", and doesn't flow naturally or smoothly for Prime or WindBlade. Actually, StarScream & Megatron don't seem quite as "wooden" in their speech-delivery in my view or uh hearing.

    Honestly, if a G1-esque Transformers series was made like this, something similar to the old Classic ThunderBirds "SuperMarionation"/ puppet & model based-show, and if it had good writing and great voice-work, I'd watch it and buy the DVDs, and I believe that many other TF/Sci-fi fans would like it as well. Professionally-made modern Stop-Motion Animation + CGI does work. It could use some tweaking regarding facial-expressions, backgrounds, & music, but this type of thing would work as a real show, or at least a web-show or made-for-video mini-series. Hasbro/Paramount etc. should use all the original cast for their classic characters, while we still have them here with us. It would drive the G1 crowd crazy-happy, at least I'm sure I'd be. :D

    Love Counter's work, he uses Transformers often, so if you liked this one there's much more to enjoy.

    This guy's work has always been about the visual spectacle, Autobots and Decepticons fighting Spidey together, Boba Fett riding the batmobile, you name it, the idea is to make awesome fights, not logical ones. :lol

    I don't think he's overthinking it at all, just thinking period. We used to be able to do that with media.

    Right cool, still just a stop motion made to advertise a cartoon made to advertise toys.

    This is so much better than the actual series it's astounding.
    This is a RWBY-level fight scene.
