    Except Starscream. He's on a tier all for himself.

    I agree, but by telling others they are special and only other species are fodder that's how he gets followers.

    I think I would like just about any colors for Ultra Magnus except for what he has. I've never liked the red-white-blue deco. The "Powered Convoy"/"Delta Magnus" color scheme isn't great, but it's a helluva lot better than what UM got. He's like a giant Captain-America robot yeti.

    To be fair I don't think his attitude could be properly described as xenophobic, he hates and views most organic life as beneath him. The term -phobia usually relates to fear and I don't think he fears us, he finds us (and anything like us) gross and thinks of us like we do bugs and insects. Hell he probably views other machine-based life as beneath him too, but due to their similarities I think he'd at least be able to humor another race of machines, meatbags on the other hand? The best case scenario would be slavery.

    For a race of machines I think it's a somewhat inevitable conclusion to find organic life to be unnatural. I genuinely wouldn't be surprised if the reaction some Cybes first had to encountering organic lifeforms is the same kind of reaction you might have if you went out after a rainstorm and picked up a large rock or log and saw the wriggling horrors hiding underneath.

    There's a part of me that think "Dare" is a better song than "The Touch".

    it's better simply by virtue of not having its lyrics spammed anytime anything even vaguely related to the 86 movie is posted.

    Is that his Spanish Dub VA? I don't think I've heard that one, I'd like to hear it. D: Do you happen to be bilingual?

    And reflexively, in my head all I heard was the dialogue from the movie as the song played. :D

    Quite. But in one of the episodes Fallout Boy appears and transforms in car robots who combine into one giant robot. And Cyborg turns into Ultra Magnus. Sort of.

    I missed that one, but my kids still occasionally play that song so that it gets stuck in my head and drives me batshit crazy for no less than three days.

    Ha! I've seen almost every episode with my daughter. I think the show is a hoot, for a kid's show. I like it so much better than Winks or Miraculous.

    I know this one is unpopular but at this point I am a contrarian making himself hated by the other fans: of all the many parts of the Aligned/Covenant of Primus mythos that don't work, Solus Prime is one which does in fact have some deeper mythological symbolism which people gloss over due disliking her being the Well of Allsparks which gets mocked as the robo cosmic vagina. The thing is there is a brilliant detail in Solus's mythology. On one hand, she is a clear analogue to the concept of a fertility or mother goddess, which is obviously a very mythologically feminine association. Yet she is also the one who work the forge, build the weapon, tools and wonders which is obviously from a traditional and archetypal standpoint a very male role. Now here is the (possibly accidental genius): Solus make sense, if taken as a mythological character in-universe, as being both the role of a mother goddess and the traditionally masculine forge god. Cybertronians are a mechanical race. So to them, the act of creation (be it building or giving birth/life) are technically one and the same.

    To a race of sentient and living machines, of course the 'deity' associatied with giving life would also be associated with builders, engineers, architects and the likes!
