Simple Question?


When looking at the recent DVD release "A New Beginning", it mentioned something about following the recent entry series TRANSFORMERS: ENERGON, but when I saw the first episode of this show it seemed more like another remake of the original series.

Is this another remake, or is it actually a second sequel to ARMADA?

nope. It will take a while for this to come tolight in the series but you can reguard this as a Sister series to G1. whe it gets to the part where the origins of the Space bridge network are show youll see what i mean. if you take a look at season 3 of g1 you might get a glance of one planet in this universe where G1 characters had been. one word .

Actually, Cybertron/Galaxy Force was supposed to be a completely different universe than Armada and Energon in the original Japanese dub. A reset, if you will. It was Hasbro's idea to try and tie it in with the Armada/Energon continuity.

It's actually sort of a hybrid of both. With the new production company coming on board (Gonzo), there was a certain desire to make a fresh start... but at the same time, Hasbro wanted at least some continuity with Energon.

The result is a series that roughly follows the climactic events of Energon--there are numerous references to the "destruction of Unicron"--but essentially follows its own timeline. Efforts were made not to completely contradict basic G1 cannon, but the series doesn't necessarily require prior knowledge of the Transformers universe.

And I don't believe Ultra Magnus, Jazz, or Hot Rod will be showing up any time soon. Trust me... or look at the Hasbro toy line-up.

Isn't HOT SHOT supposed to be Hot Rod?

no its not a remake. cybertron is something different and better than energon but has a long way to beat armada though.

Transformers Cybertron was originally a separate entry in the Transformers universe called Galaxy Force. The producers decided to dub it as a sequel to Energon, but they ended up doing a horrible job. There are way too many inconsistencies that contradicts both Energon and Armada. Here's a list of the many I noticed.

1. Kicker, Ironhide, and other characters exclusive to Energon aren't in it.
2. Megatron was destroyed by the energon sun, not imprisoned in it.
3. In Energon, Starscream was very loyal to Megatron, but now's he's back to his old treacherous self. (Although Starscream himself wasn't in the original Energon, but replaced by character called Nightscream)
4. In the first episode, you can tell this is the first time the transformers visit earth. What happened to the cybertron city that was built there?
5. Cyclonis, Demolisher, and Tidalwave, 3 prominent decepticons aren't in it.
6. In Energon, Primus was depicted as a being of light while in Cybertron, he's depicted as the actual planet Cybertron transformer complete with robot form.
7. In Armada,Sideways was an agent created by Unicron. In Cybertron,he's depicted as a comical bufoon from another planet

Sounds lousy.

I watched a few episodes when this was still on TV, but it wasn't a very good show, so I eventually tuned out. I still got the single disc DVD, though. I wonder if the Complete Series set is even still in print.
