A very enjoyable, very bingeable series.

I was so intrigued, I wanted it to keep going. I guess that's not a bad thing -- leave them wanting more. Well, I want more.

Turns out that strategy of making toy commercials still works when it's backed by a product that focuses more on the title characters than humans.

Its nuanced portrayal of the Autobot vs. Decepticon struggle as a brutal clash of ideologies hits on a deeper level than visceral action.

    Sin duda lo mejor de Transformers, se siente el ambiente desolado, la psicología de los personajes está excelente. Prime no es el líder perfecto a quien todos respetan y eso le da más poder a la trama . Una excelente serie, nada comparado con las mediocridades de Michael Bay Una serie de transformers,protagonizada por transformers.

    I think this falls short of being an outstanding season in a number of ways, but that doesn't mean this isn't the best iteration of Transformers since Prime. Personally I think this season could have benefited from being at least twice as long and it should have used the length to tell the whole story of the War for Cybertron from the beginning. The biggest reason for this is that it's created a lack of character development. Quite often it feels like we're expected to know who these characters are just because they're familiar faces from throughout the years, with a lot of Gen 1 faces in particular. Having these characters here is great, but because they expect you to just know who they are, dialogue and problems feel like they stem from nowhere in particular, eluding to things that have already happened by this point in the War, but because we don't see them they carry little weight compared to if we had. It also feels a bit like a rushed prologue when you consider it looks like chapter 2 is going to be the classic Transformers on a Earth story from pretty much every iteration. The window for something bold and interesting to really change up the formula might have passed. Another big issue I have is expression. For the most part, I love the Gen 1 designs, especially for characters like Megatron, Starscream, and Prowl. However, because they've copied them so exactly, you don't get the range of facial expressions that helped make the characters in Prime so engaging, with eyes barely moving when you feel like they should, and faces looking relatively wooden as a whole. It makes characters feel strangely emotionless and hard to read, especially when the voice actors don't always nail their delivery bang on. Again, this doesn't help with some of these situations that are supposed to feel weighty. My biggest issue arguably lies with the animation. It's visually impressive for sure, with fantastic detailing on the bots, but that doesn't feel as impressive when they move woodenly, as if there's a lag between what they're saying and how long it takes them to act. A character talking about them being surrounded also has little weight to it when it then shows them standing there doing nothing with only five or so enemies in view. It feels jarring. I feel like comparison is always going to be a big part of a franchise over thirty years old with as many iterations as a Transformers and I'm going to mention a Prime here again. Bots were extremely emotive with everyone's personality shining in their faces and the ways they moved, character motion felt fluid and snappy, and shot angles were dynamic and punchy, showing you the flow of fights in ways that Siege really falls short on. It's a shame that it feels like they did some things really right with Siege and I've wanted a Transformers series that focuses on the war for years, but it should have had more time to tell that story properly. As well as this, whilst I don't want a carbon copy of Prime, I wish they'd learnt more from the animation of that series. Here's hoping that in chapter 2 this picks up, because whilst it is really good, I think that it's not too much to ask for better in certain areas that they got right almost a decade ago.

    As a huge G1 freak from day 1 I have to say this is the BEST TRANSFORMERS SERIES YET. As a matter of fact, each of the 6 episodes even beats any film of the movie franchise with ease. A new storyline with enough subplots and referrals to and elements of old ones, a show case of practically every appearing character, great designs, motion and voicing. I personally would have taken Peter Cullen to voice Optimus Prime and Frank Welker for Megatron, also partially out of nostalgia, but that would be off the charts.

    Voice acting is not that good. I hated Optimus prime.

    One of the best incarnations of the "Transformers" I've seen since I watched the original cartoon series back in the 1980s. Great series that gives us the backstory as to why and how the Autobots made it to Earth after the war on Cybertron. It also lets us more into the minds of the characters and their motivations than most other series I've watched. The artwork and animation are impeccable. I've never been a fan of the live-action movies or some of the childish animated series I've seen over the years. THIS series restores my enjoyment of the Transformers.

    personally. I didnt mind the series, even enjoyed myself watching it for a bit. But then I saw the interview Peter cullen gave about it. And completely changed my perspective. It was so sad seeing him so crushed and being so disrespected by Rooster teeth. I won't be watching the 2nd season unless serious changes are made. Stop buying cheap, non-unionized workers for voice acting. If you dont want peter cullen, write Optimus IN character, as he should, and get someone who can fill your heart as optimus should amongst fans.

    The show features more mature characters, with a greater essence. The final chapter of the season, although one already knows what is going to happen, is simply stunning.
  • 6d ago
    A great series, that reimagine the civil war between autobots and decepticons. Two factions, two leaders who wants to win the battle to make cybertron great. Followers of both sides, with ideals and doubts about the path of war. No white or black... Only a lot of grey. A great beggining for a new trilogy
