    No confirmed date yet, but I would say probably similar to this year. This year it started August.

    That's a solid Autobot cast right there with a good distribution of male and female characters. It's nice to see Prime's and Grimlock's faceplate too. Though since Wheeljack is missing his, I have a feeling he doesn't actually have one.

    I echo everyone else's thoughts that the episodes are too short. I can't get involved with the plot or any of the characters as the show barely allows enough time to do so. If they can fix something about this show, it would be this.

    This is one of the rare times I disagree with you. I like the timing of the episodes. Given the studio that's making this, I worry that if it were pushed up to 20-22 minutes, it'd become padded as heck. Plus, 9 minutes isn't that far off from how 22 minute episodes are structured with commercial breaks.

    That said, I do hope they get a better feel for how to break up the arcs for season 2 (I think they will given that the latter episodes are a bit tighter than the earlier ones).

    seems the reason episodes for cartoons these days grow shorter and shorter is due to people's attention spans.

    Fair enough! You are probably right in terms of the padding, but I don't mind it. The extra dialogue would go a long way in building some sort of attachment for these characters. Also, it doesn't help when watching these episodes, I feel like they will be ending any second given how short they are.

    So I counted 8 seekers:

    Slipstream*
    Acid Storm
    Novastorm
    Thundercracker*
    Thrust*
    Teal seeker
    Black and neon green seeker
    Sunstorm??
    (*the only ones listed in credits)

    So the original battle was 10 vs 3...

    and now we’re up to 9 vs 10 plus a whole fleet? Hmm...

    So that was the end of season one... I like the world building they did in the first few episodes, but this almost seems like a prequel for than a proper season.

    That one has popped up a few times and I live the MW Screamer homage, I just wish this line had better toys, because I would love an MW Screamer colored seeker, from, well just about any seeker mold.

    Right? I’d like him and a Novastorm or Shawdowstriker too. The line is so bad we can’t even cannibalize heads off them to add to other toys because they’re not even correct. “Here’s a Slipstream. Well it’s not even a really a jet and...um well not even a girl either.” :/

    ...can you really call it binge watching when the entire season is only about three hours long?..
