    heads up; this season's animation was handled by a different studio. You both are justified in feeling there are visual inconsistencies

    I saw that in the very first episode when Optimus drove over the train tracks. He seemed light.

    The designs in this show are crying out for Animated-level toys and it makes me so fucking sad to know that we will NEVER get them.

    'Okay I guess and not in any kind of scale' is tragically the best we can hope for.

    I'm two episodes in and I've really noticed it. Everything seems laggy and some of the models just look cheap - particularly the you know what in episode two :S

    My biggest gripe with this show will always be that the children do way too much. I mean the last episode has all the characters taken out but two who provide nothing but transportation for the kids so they do it all. A little involvement is fine but you can take every Autobot and Terran out and make this show Decepticons vs Children and very little changes.

    Cyberverse had no humans and this show just course corrected way too far.

    Thankfully the humans in Earthspark are so blandly inoffensive that I can just tune them out. I prefer Cyberverse on the whole but Earthspark has some bot designs in it that just absolutely SLAY.

    I have some nitpicks about them but nothing crazy. They're just too OP right now in battles and ability to me. They need to dial that back some.
    That's my fault. I forgot how much a linchpin that kid was to the story. I am ashamed.

    So when can we expect Batch 2? Would it be fall or winter of this year?

    I want to say fall, since it's usually a three month wait, but I won't be surprised if it ends up premiering in December.

    Finished the new episodes. TBH, if it wasn't for how cool some of the bot designs are I just wouldn't bother after this. It didn't thrill me.

    As soon as all hype for Earthspark has grown stone cold because Paramount can't let go of the binge release model.

    I suspect Prowl is going to be in the 2nd batch of episodes

    In addition, I remember a rumor that the Terrans would visit Cybertron in the 2nd season, so we have a lot of things that have yet to happen, even though a lot of stuff has already happened in the first batch of episodes.

    I could see that happening since I believe that's when batch 2 for season 1 came out

    I'd say either November or December,since Amazon has some books for preorder that come out in December.

    Finally finished the season

    The trailer episode was great, seeing Optimus care so much about that Trailer that he always had in G1 was funny

    Let me just say, Starscream being a menace never ever gets tiring. In Cyberverse he became a Quintesson, in the new Comics... I mean that speaks for itself, and in this show he controls a titan with a corrupted arm. Please keep this trend going (that was pretty much always there and never stopped) of Starscream going off the rails

    Terratronus is cool too, although I really don't like nostrils on transformers even if it had a bit of a story based reason to exist this time. Her design is neat otherwise and the voice was cool too.

    I wanna see more Terratronus in the future.

    I'm also of the opinion that Starscream is going to get his redemption arc in the next couple of episodes.

    Also was Terratronus' appearance a reference to this image from the Marvel TF series?

    I don't think that's Paramount. The iCarly revival only had 1 episode a week
