    Here's a thought: what if Hasbro made it this terrible on purpose just to tell us that a Generation 1 style show will not work in this day and age?

    I don't know about that. Hasbro did pay Machinima for this garbage.

    There is nothing good about this show. I'd go into all of its problems, but I've done that before, and frankly, I'd be wasting my time on this total garbage.

    Machinima should be ashamed of this trash.

    And, you know, the running length is not an excuse. They have ~5 minutes per episode. Their final run time is supposed to be about 45 minutes total. There are plenty of TV shows which have completely coherent stories from beginning to end within that time. Why can't Combiner Wars do it? Just because it's split into ~5 minute episodes doesn't mean the quality should be worse. Each one could just be a separate story beat. Instead, each one is just a bigger clusterfuck than the last.

    Honestly I thought that the G1 cartoon was bad (At least in comparison to later shows with better writing. Maybe it's more okay at best.), but it certainly wasn't THIS bad! There's the Constructicons having 3 different conflicting backstories, and then there's being thrown into the story without much information about what's going on.

    Though to be honest, Animated was probably the closest to a G1-style show we ever got, and it was good in its own right.

    Wow that was incoherent.

    The thing that kilss me is the animation was passable and it probably cost more than the things they clearly didn't bother with like script.

    Final verdict: Keep the animation, but kill the rest with fire.

    This development of Starscream is beat-for-beat exactly like Cybertron's Starscream.

    He gets the superpower, he becomes literally larger than life, and then kaput!

    The Constructicons had backstories? I remember created by Megatron on earth and brainwashed on Cybertron. what was the other one?

    Awful just simply awful, I think TF Cybertron was better than this (and that was rubbish as well).

    I really hope Hasbro takes some of that movie money and gets another studio to make Titans Return (if they actually do make sequal).
