News Post: Transformers: Cyberverse Nominated At Irish Animation Awards 2019
Well, they certainly deserve it! Boulder Media has been doing some GREAT work on Cyberverse(and RBA). Cyberverse is definitely the best Transformers series we've had in years. I know a lot of people begrudged it because it starred Bumblebee, who was yet again doing the whole radio talk thing from movies, but I think they did a great job. Probably my favourite version of Bumblebee since G1. And Windblade in this is absolutely fantastic! I love her! She is the definitive version of the character for me! And I especially love how a lot of the other characters get little tiny moments and a little peak into their character. Particularly the Seekers. I really love how poor Thundercracker is kind of clueless punching bag of this series. He's started to become the Waspinator of Cyberverse. Great show! I hope Boulder gets much more nominations in the future and actually wins awards. It's a fantastic show! Can't wait for season 2, especially with frickin' CHEETOR in it! I hope there's a season 3 and 4 too!
they do indeed deserve it. I hope they win something.
Cyberverse does get this
I think they are doing great work as well, In fact the only thing I actively dislike about the series is Optimus voice, not becuase it's bad but because I it just feels like a cheap imitation of Cullen, I would prefer a voice actor that was bringing there own thing to the table instead of just trying to impersonate what came before, also I kinda wish Hasbro would put a little more money into the series, and as much as I liked season one the trailer for season 2 has me concerned that the show will be going to RID2015 route and putting in every gimmick from the toys to the detriment of the show.
If the Japanese from "Polygon Pictures" would remove the correct CV with those early concept art (five fingers and according to the full TF canon, etc.), then this would be AMAZING!!!
Megatron is my Hero deserves it. It was my favorite episode and it was very well written.
The voice does feel a little off, but finding good replacements for Peter isn't a bad idea. He wont be able to voice Optimus forever. The reality of his age will eventually start to take its toll.
I would like them to get Garry Chalk back as Optimus I think he is a good successor to Peter.
Not to be a downer, but is this really a thing? How many \"Irish Animaiton studios\" are there? (I\'m of Irish decent, My family\'s name was McClusky before it was butchered in the immigration process). It\'s like that joke in the Movie Airplane -\"Here;s a leaflet on famous Jewish Pro Athletes\"
Personally, I liked MacCadam's best out of everything so far. First time Maccadam himself or his bar have been in a cartoon. And I love how it takes place in the same location, but at 3 different times: before the war, at the beginning of the war, and just before Bee leaves on the Ark. And it connects with various other episodes in the series.
Siloed was also very good. Excellent "Spotlight"-style episode that shows off how bad ass Windblade is without Bumblebee. And it's a peek into the Decepticons ranks, how they interact with each other, their social vs military structure, etc.
But yeah, Megatron Is My Hero is good too. Surprisingly dark for this series.
Sorry but that does indeed make you a downer.
Downer: someone who belittles other people’s victories.
But at least you get an award for it:
!Negative Nancy Award!
Boy that is awesome, I hope they win, they have been doing a great job withthe series.
Sabotage was my favorite episode.
Also to any Genwunner saying that “it’s a dumb baby show”....
Ah yes. Irish decent.
As an Irish person, in Ireland, with 98% irish DNA (proven. Also 1% Nigerian and 1% Middle Eastern which raises some interesting questions), I'd like to say 1) that's not patronizing at all. And 2) we have several. And have produced some of the most well received independent animated films of the last decade. And contributed to international animation in general for decades.
yoo someone said it. northern irish myself, and there are plenty of animation studios around ireland. Though irish animated films exist (book of kells, song of the sea, angela's christmas), the larger part of the industry is in animation for tv. The scene is big for such a small country, but you know, someone who isn't irish and isn't in ireland has never heard of it so it mustn't exist.
Well deserved. Cyberverse its a great new series. For new fans, and for old fans who NOT just on G1ish but can see new series.
Are the irish animation awards a big thing?!
Started in 2015 and biannual but they've gotten quite a bit bigger each year. Early stages but doing well. Plus funding bodies in Ireland actually acknowledging this kinda thing is big. We've got a healthy animation industry but public sensibilities with this kinda thing has only really developed in recent years, so in the earl 00s you'd have never seen this kinda event.
