    I will say, I'm glad to learn that Aftermath is indeed that new design and not a Jawbreaker or Thrash repaint, if only because that means that new design is indeed getting a toy.

    You know, I'm honestly surprised, if this is true, simply because I thought Hasbro would do a third, shorter and cheaper season, to serve as a placeholder, while they wait and see how TFOne does and then make the next show a spinoff, if it's a success. I guess it's possible they're jumping the gun and making a spinoff regardless.

    Why does every Transformer series I get invested in have 2 seasons? I guess I'll never know.

    Not all. Beast Machines had 2, Rid 01 had 1, but yea, most have 3 (or are trilogies of single season shows)

    My big fave TF series was BM, which had two. I know a lot of them have 3, but BM was the one I got super into as a kid.

    It’s not super surprising if they are pulling the plug, Paramount Plus just isn’t a great home for a cartoon you want to reach a wide audience so you can sell toys. Earthspark was a really solid show, some of the better storytelling we’ve had in a very long time.

    I’m sure they’ll try again with a new approach, go massively into the seemingly deeply unpopular gimmick toys and then we end up right back here.

    Maybe it would also help if companies would move away from the binge release model.

    I mean, look at X-Men '97. Besides being very good, with a lot of positive reception and good word of mouth, it being on the weekly release model keeps audiences coming back for more, keeping the ratings up. The binge model has worked for some shows, but it also pretty effectively doomed others. On the other hand, Earthspark is a bit of a different beast, given the nature of the franchise being designed to move merch sales, which fund the shows.

    Dang this sucks. I feel like a lot of passion and new stuff was in this show, and I’m sad it didn’t work out. It was kind of nice to have a show more focused on the end of the war.

    I know this conversation went sideways here, but I kind of want a few other characters to be in Earthspark aside from Cosmos and Prowl and possibly the characters alluded to in the g1 flashback:

    - Windblade, since she's been in a lot of animated media as of late
    - Chromia, due to the fact she's also been in some new media and got a new toy recently, also I kind of want her to be there since Elita is also on ES
    - Tarn, more likely as a sort of secondary antagonist, possibly after Megatron
    - Botanica, since she needs more animated appearances in media
    - Slipstream, she's getting a new toy plus it would be interesting to see her in media again, possibly playing off of Starscream and the other seekers
    - Rack n Ruin, I just think they should be Wreckers again
    - Kup, because I think the Terrans should get him as their Autobot grandpa
    - Coddexa, due to Earthsparks emphasis on Cybertronian history maybe we should get a Transformer historian?

    my problem isn't that it happened
    my problem is that besides Shockwave, there has been no indication of this from the other Decepticons
    now they just pull it out of their ass because "oh, we need Autobots and Decepticons fighting each other like the old days"

    soundwave feel likely to be one, insecticons as well, and both work because we never actually seen them go, oh those are guys made here? they just saw and fought them like they would autobots. if starscream does it, i don't fully see it because of his small interaction with hashtag

    I mean the deceptions never exactly said whether they were fully supportive of the Terrans being Cybertronians or not. Shockwave did say they were lower class cybertronians, so all of the decepticons thinking this doesn’t seem far off to me.
    If Starscream really does think this, I hope that maybe he’s trying to convince himself as well or that he’s slightly conflicted, since he clearly cares about hashtag? Soundwave being in on this fits. Swindle and his brother? Idk. Breakdown? Similar to starscream, maybe conflicted.

    breakdown is another idk to me, he never had much interaction with terrans, only with bee, so i could see him being the same as some of the others in some way

    He’s clearly still on the cons side, despite his friendship with bee. I think maybe he’ll agree with them, but still have doubts because of bee trying to convince him otherwise.
