    I don't know if someone else answered you already but they're clones of one another and Soundblaster does NOT like it

    Dude, spot on!!!
    My thoughts on Cyberverse exactly, as you said, my main issue is the constant disconnects in dialogue and dropped threads, it’s like whoever was writing it kept getting distracted and then never bothered to reread what they already wrote, so we end up with the haphazard choppy show that somehow actually got made. Tbh, what surprises me most, and I feel this way about a lot of the newer kids shows, is that I’m constantly asking myself “does no one edit this shit? Does no one care about attention to detail anymore?” while I’m watching them. It’s the lack of polish, that we were spoiled with in the 80’s, 90’s, and early 00’s, that saddens me, I guess “creators” these days are more about just pumping the next thing out for the attention deficit generation than they are about making a quality product...

    Also, relatedly, I commented (yes, in a slightly snarky tone mind you—mostly directed at Hasbro) on a Transformers Official Instagram SIEGE teaser post about how I am annoyed that though they hyped how “very G1” and “faithfully G1” this show is, it’s ended up being yet another “post-Bay” cartoon about our beloved characters chasing their holy space macguffin, the “Allspark”. Which, on its own, fine, whatever, even Transformers: Prime had some scenes with that garbage in there, but the fact that they feigned this would be for the “80’s fans” and then didn’t deliver strikes me as half-assed and a bit hurtful. But after posting, I was “attacked” by a bunch of other “fans” claiming that “this is not G1, it’s new, it just uses the designs” which is WTF?! The inherent paradox there, G1-but-actually-not-really-but-OK, being brushed under the rug by fans eager to praise Hasbro, is what worries me. I’m worried the “discerning”, “quality-minded” fans amongst us are being replaced with “car go boom! Car turn into robot! Glowy cube, cool!” people...

    Question for those who have seen it: How is Ultra Magnus handled in the show and did you like the direction they took his character? He's the aspect of the show I'm most intrigued by.

    Sideswipe is a character in the show who has lines.

    I haven't seen those yet. Are there links to any summaries or descriptions on IDW's website?

    So...just a background character, or does he get redshirted and die?

    Rumblestorm, needless to say I disagree with some of these assertions. At least, I would suggest you watch the show and come to your own conclusions before you definitively say this.

    No spoiler material Skeeve. You will have to watch the show and find out.

    Welp SunSwipe is going to be sweating bullets. I think they'll have a panic attack if they watch it and he doesn't make it. Though, I do have a theory based off one of the trailers.

    Bumblebee is a temporary host for the Allspark

    Also:

    Bill Rogers is Wheeljack.

    LOL, watch the show on Thursday Rumblestorm! All the original questions will be answered. There are still things I can't talk about until post-launch.

    I had the displeasure of watching all of season 1. I saw the first half of season 2 in it's entirety and I skimmed through the second half because I couldn't sit through 10 minutes of it.
    I saw the entirety of the first 2 arcs of Season 3 and skimmed through the last arc.
    I sat through all of it, like an idiot, thinking I would have some kind of epiphany at some point as to why people are riding the hype train for this show.

    It never happened, and I stand by what I said. Its one of the laziest and cheapest things to come out of this franchise since Energon and the joke of a toyline that was AoE's.
    Heck, I'd rather watch Energon again than to see another episode of Cyberverse.

    Sorry I think our wires are crossed. I'm talking about War for Cybertron, I assume you are talking about Prime Wars?

    I'm talking about Cyberverse. You told me I needed to actually watch the show to make an opinion of it, despite the fact that I sat through the entirety of that crap.

    "I dislike the new material and I wish something I liked was made instead" doesn't recquire you to cross your arms and decide that everyone with a different view is "Excusing it!!", as if it even needed to be excused to anyone.
