Hasbro does another Classics/Universe/Movie video

Hasbro's MonkeyBar TV has updated with a brand-new, completely original Transformers video, starring the oh-so-conveniently hitting stores Universe Cyclonus, an unidentifiable Megatron that apparently turns into a jet, a cross between Classics and Movie Bumblebee, and a cross between Masterpiece and Movie Optimus Prime. Plus, there's even a remix of the Transformers Energon theme song, for those who love the Unicron trilogy.

This is episode two of Universe. The first episode was "Action Blast 1".

This was just cheesy, even moreso than G1.

Notice that Cyclonus sounds like Richard Newman, and Megs' altmode was similar to Cyclonus's but a bit different.

Also, the Autobots seem more destructive than the Decepticons in this one.

So far, the Universe cartoon is the weirdest of them all.

I think that will have to serve as my daily dose of insanity

That really sucked. I tried to be bipartisan in the news post, but it was horrible. Just...horrible.

...That was that was just bad
that level of bad there are no other words to discribe it

So far, out of all of the TF cartoons, the Universe one seems to be the weirdest yet.

WTF!!! what's with the stupid rabbit?!?!?! whats with BB's bulging eyes!?!? THIS IS A DISGRACE TO TRANSFORMERS!!!!!!!!!!!

That is one piece of weirdness I really did not need. Yikes. I'm guessing it was written overseas, considering the crappy little lecture given by Optimus as to, ~"... and this is why the Decepticions will never win..." YUCK! It's like every part of the Unicron trilogy cartoons that I did NOT like, condensed into one agonizing minute of cheaply animated, "cartoon."

Let's hope Hasbro puts it's efforts and financial resources into other endeavors!

This was a disgrace. just pure garbage. I could write better in my sleep.

There was so, so much wrong with that...abomination of a cartoon. The only part that actually made sense was the stupid rabbit. A jack rabbit in the middle of a desert-esque location...perfect sense. When the stupid thing started I thought "Why is Optimus driving on the wrong side of the road?" and!
DocWho said,  - 2009-05-07 06:21:18
Doesn't everyone just love the obvious commercialism? There's the Optimus Prime that looks like the movie figures that just so happens to be hitting stores, the Movie BB just so happening to be hitting stores in the preview wave, and the Cyclonus that's ALSO just hitting stores. Gee, what a non-obvious ploy to get us to put cash in Hasbro's pocket. Maybe it would work...if it wasn't horrible, and that anyone smart would turn it off after 1 minute. Besides, all they do is sit around and talk. How is that making a toy appealing to children!? Why even DO this?

That has to be one of the worst things I have ever seen. It was just so stupid.

I say that on a scale of 0-10, it was a NEGATIVE 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 It was the crappiest thing I've ever seen!!!!!!

Indeed, that was painful to watch. Perhaps Hasbro commissioned it from someone off of newgrounds to try and appeal to that demographic?
Wheelie is My Name said,  - 2009-05-09 20:10:09
That gives me an idea. How about take classics bumblebee's head and switch with movie 08 camaro bumblebee.
anyway that wasn't too bad. why not make a real cartoon with all the classics and universe figures ?

Wow, you guys are taking this *way* too seriously. Is it weird that I feel like the only one who "gets it"? To me, this was obviously a lovingly crafted parody of the original G1 TV show. Think about it: The hastily spoken, hokey, often-melodramatic dialogue, the limited animation, the flat acting... It's just like the original cartoon! Of course it's bad, it's *intentionally* bad. Some people went to a lot of trouble to make these little snippets of 80's goodness that poke fun at what was after all a glorified toy commercial. Are we so bitter nowadays that we can't see humor when we're staring right at it?
