    Wired released a video of Rooster Teeth's CEO Matt Hullum going over the Transformers iterations throughout the years, in anticipation of the WFC Siege Netflix Series releasing next week!

    Having watched the first ten minutes of this, I feel that we are in good hands.

    It's really awkward how much he reads his lines from off screen considering it'd be so easy given the amount of cuts to just... not film him when he's reading from off screen.

    I agree at some points it seems like whats he's saying is scripted but it's a nice catch up for people being introduced to Transformers with the netflix series.

    It being scripted is fine. I don't think, even as a fan, I could ad-lib a coherent half-hour overview of the brand. :lol 

    It's more a comment on the editing than Matt.

    - Focusing entirely on the cartoons, only briefly mentioning comics when talking about Generation 2.
    - Showing clips from Masterforce while talking about the Headmasters cartoon.
    - Correctly saying that Generation 2 ran from 1993 to 1995, then immediately contradicting that in the very next sentence by claming that G2 ran from 1992 to 1995.
    - Genrallyspeakingveryincoherently. This guy might be all right, but he sure isn't used to talking in front of an audience.

    I cannot believe how little he actually talked about Beast Wars in the Beast Wars segment. He just rambled on about the Ark.

    Drunk Matt would've done a better job. :lol

    DO YOU THINK THERE MIGHT BE A REASON WHY THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF THE NEW TRANSFORMERS SHOW IS TALKING ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ARK?

    COULD THERE POSSIBLY BE A REASON!

    Did he just completely skip over nuRID? Not that I care about that show but it's really weird to not mention it.

    Our man Matt said that the UT lasted 5 years from 2000 to 2005. And Old rid was only 1 year. Lol but otherwise good starter video for New fans from the bayverse or prime.

    I mean it's pretty central to Siege considering it's the evac ship for autobot command but it could also be a hint that the Ark is more than meets the eye;)

    He chooses BEAST MACHINES to talk about how in their WFC Siege show they made them transform like the toys. BEAST MACHINES! Not BEAST WARS where they actually did transform like the toys. But Beast Machines where they all transformed using that same morph/scale cheat.

    Yeah, he's obviously just reading off a wiki or something. I doubt he's actually watched even a single episode of each of these series. Let alone every series in its entirety.

    Also, is he trying to say that Siege actually takes place in the original G1 cartoon continuity? Ha! Then what about Jetfire/Skyline being there and not frozen on Earth?

    Yep. He also skipped BW Neo and Zone. Although Zone is easy skip being only one episode. They also showed some Victory, but he didn't mention it.

    Why do we have to be this way guys? This video has one purpose, and one purpose only: to promote the new show. It’s not Transformers mastermind. Irrespective of whether he’s using supporting resources or makes some minor (and unimportant) factual errors, he clearly has a passion for the brand. We should be thankful for that.

    I mean, it's purpose is in the title. It's every Transformers Generation explained. It's completely fair to criticize any mistakes. It doesn't make him stupid, or even make him not a fan. I mean TF fans correct each other all the time.
