Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy on Netflix

Anyone else see this yet? I just binged the six half-hour episodes of chapter one. It's another reboot, but this time it's essentially the original cartoon with the benefit of 35 years of hindsight. It's also quite grimdark for Transformers.

Binged it, enjoyed it. I want more figures for repaints now :)

I don't see what anyone has been complaining about online. Transformers has always been 'my toys fighting with each other'. It's supposed to be a little corny!

The first part is going to be a bit dark. Before getting to Earth the Decepticons have basically won and the Autobots are forced to escape in the Ark.

Which is basically the same premise as the pilot episode of the 1984 cartoon: Cybertron's energy is exhausted and the Autobots are verging on extinction.

It looks quite good. Anything to purge the memory of the Bay films.
