    I binged it in Japanese (the only way to watch it if you aren’t intentionally giving yourself the worst possible experience) and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m not going to delve into spoilers but to me this was a huge leap forward from Siege and Earthrise and a massive shame that the team behind it only found their footing right at the end.

    EDIT: although from That One Screenshot maybe we aren’t done?

    So, how do we call the AirazorXBlackarachnia ship now?
    I have my own complaints about the overall heavyhanded writing in the BW comic (One of them also being the overly-idealized version of Dinobot too) but at the very least their portrayal of BW Megatron is miles ahead from the one here.

    is anybody ever going to watch earthrise again? i feel like that was the least line-centric and the least stuff happened out of the 3 and nobody's gonna want to sit through it lol

    Wasn’t the whole point of sucking up to Megatron was to prevent him from being reformatted into Galvatron? I felt like the whole suck up aspect was intended to be an entire act, but the voice direction was just so bad it just made him look like the other way round.

    Watched it, hear are my thoughts
    wasn't as bad I was expecting and close to siege maybe a bit better. I actually enjoyed dinobot's voice actor and like how they handled the character unlike bw Megatron who is atrocious in both of those elements. There were a lot of dumb moments though like Megatron knowing the outcome of every battle and yet doesn't know about mirage or decepictons suddenly not trusting predacons to give a lazy excuse for how the bots escape or how the maximal forget the purpose of the allspark despite being why they hate nemesis among other things

    Okay.... I have one question....

    Where was Rodimus and Cyclonus? I don't remember the episode but then reinforcements were discussed, I was expecting to see them.

    Another thing about the show was...

    None of the Fossilizers were in the show. So were they necessary in the toyline?

    I used to make fun of G1 fans when it came to the Bay movies and how they complained about differences and stuff. I now know what they felt. I grew up with the Beast Wars and even if I can accept a different story, these characters are only the same as the original in name and looks but not in the personality and charisma of the old show. They didn't get the old voice actors, fine but give nods to them since they do the same with the G1 characters. I'm sorry but I just couldn't stand it.

    The modulators weren't in it either, and I thing the Cog body was the only weaponizer that was rendered in the show. You could make the argument that they weren't necessary either.

    What was the sequel hook for Prime Wars? I don’t even remember how it ended.

    Just watched the first three eps.

    So, I'm kind of confused at the kingdom line. Almost all the "WFC KINGDOM" toys are complete representations of 90s beast wars (Primal, Dinobot, Cheetor, Tigatron, Airazor) except Rhinox. I'm thrilled at that; the 2021 designs are fine and good but definitely aren't toy accurate (see Airazor's nose, Tigatron's mouth)

    Well... that happened.
    I'm not thrilled with the fate of some of my favorite characters.
    I liked Airrazor's VA, and didn't mind Blackarachnia's or Dinobot's.
    That's about the best I can say.
    I would've liked it if Nemesis Prime would have gotten more development/explanation.

    Question: who are the statues in the end, Cog and who?
