    Okay, so I'm into the way they did Bee not having a voice. He's brain damaged, which is a decent introduction. I'm way into MommaBlade and BabyBee. What I don't like is how Thundercracker shows up completely at random, has one line (That's just a pained grunt) and doesn't even announce why he's here other than to attack the two protagonists. A side mention of the series macguffin would've been nice.

    Not a bad introduction. It is kind of funny seeing Bumblebee clueless to the difference between the Autobots and Decepticons. My one gripe is that I feel like they could have done more with him being mistrustful of Windblade at first and unaware the Decepticons want to kill him.

    I liked the music. But the episode format sucks. It's basically half an episode. Also the faces suck and the art style in general, it just suits a comedy more than an action cartoon. I would prefer realistic proportions and not this exaggerated stuff. The visuals look otherwise good. I just don't like how stylized it is AGAIN. What is it, the 4th or 5th show that looks so silly?
    If the Machinima cartoons were made in such a high quality, it would look so much better. Although they would need to look a little less like the toys. I really wish they would get Floro Dery to redesign everything once more...

    But the music was really awesome so far. But I don't know. Every ten minutes the credits and another intro? Uh. I think I'm gonna watch Netflix now instead of episode 2.

    I enjoyed it a lot. Cool music, characters, and plot. The comedy is pretty good as well, which is a big part of why I enjoyed RID so much, so that's good.

    My one gripe is the runtime. I don't mind 11 minute cartoons, in fact some really intelligent cartoons like Steven Universe and Star vs. the Forces of Evil are 11 minutes. But it'd probably help if they aired two segments together (Spongebob style). I think the setup is good but there just isn't enough there. I'll probably come back, but some people might not see enough reason to. I want more and I think I'd enjoy this a lot more if they aired two together. Especially knowing some things about upcoming episodes, it'd help with the plot as well.

    Other than that, I enjoyed it! 9.5 out of 10 for me!

    Bee was annoying.

    Windblade was flustered.

    Thundercracker was a bad-ass.

    11 minutes is a sucky time frame.

    Still, it seems like it has potential, so I'll continue to watch.

    The 11 minute format does NOT work for Transformers.

    And we've really gone back to Bumblebee talking through the radio? Really?

    At least they did something from it, unlike Bayformers where he has no reason to still be damaged. It makes sense because he's mentally regressed to the age of a child or something.

    Each episode is just far too short for me. 11 minutes of runtime doesn't even sit well for a Transformers show in general. It might work for Looney Tunes or Tom and Jerry, but it just doesn't work. You're basically throwing everything in the audience's faces and expect at least most of them to understand. Newcomers to the Transformers might not even understand what the hell is happening.

    I liked it, especially the world-building, the look of the show, and the characters
    If I had any complaints, it would be that Windblade's actress reads a few of the lines in an awkward way a couple times, Bee's voice being broken is really not interesting anymore (although this appears to change later on), and the landscapes feel really empty, including Cybertron.
    But I did like it. I thought it was really cute and fun. I'll watch the rest for sure.

    Uhm...not gonna lie...I'm not impressed. I dunno what is it. Maybe it's the art style, the tone...it's just too friendly for me. I find the action and tension hardly believable. I miss Prime's seriousness. But I dunno this is just the frist episode it still has a lot more chances to grow on me. For some reason I don't expect it to happen though...

    Bee and Windblade's friendship is a little bit too forced in my opinion...it's almost as if they're boy/girlfriends and I am not sure if I like it.

    ^Everyone has their own opinion. Its fine! I for ex, liked TFP but felt it was sometimes more edgy than dark, mature, and serious.

    I'm neither disappointed nor blown away. It's a fair enough children's show.

    Animation is better than RiD to me.

    I like the variety of scenery and the early exposition by Windblade. Too bad there's not much more to her character so far than exposition and random abilities and gadgets, because in both episodes she's kind of dull.

    Bee isn't perfect, but not awful either.

    I'll watch future episodes. It's an okay kids' show, but nothing mind-blowing so far.
