They had really hardy spore shells.. or it was a really cold star... or maybe it really was just a dumb plot device.

There ain't a hydrocarbon in the galaxy (or hydrosilocate) that won't combust and break into pieces in a nuclear furnace. But that premise is just silly too - but they didn't make the entire moral point of G1 around it.

After millions and millions of years and all that technology and transformers living there, it took one to turn into an ape to discover Cybertron was once organic. LOL

Gonna be watching a lot of Transformers for a while.

That's the other part that doesn't make sense. You would figure that the Autobots - particularly post 2005 - would know SOMETHING if there was this huge core of goo just waiting to be discovered. Remember, they had been mining the planet for resources and energy for millions of years prior to that.

"Dammit, if we had just dug six inches to the LEFT over there..."

The best thing about Beast Machines? You can watch five episodes and still get the entire series. ^_^

Ah, but that's a UK boxset, and over here series also has the same meaning as season in America (hence the Red DwarfDVD's have "Complete original/second/third etc series" on the front). So it is perfectly well named.

And as for Cybertron's goey core... If we start critising Transformers for dodgy science we'll never stop.

It could be Rhino Home Video finishing up their run since Rhino Home Video is a Time Warner Company.

I never liked the - Cybertron was once organic - theme to it.
It probably wasn't. I never thought Primal's conclusions were correct.
But that was part of the point, I think. A large part of Beast Machines' plotline involved Primal's descent into fanaticism. Once a fanatic has latched onto an idea, no matter how ludicrous, you can forget about getting him to see the truth. Primal was just as much a danger to other Transformers as Megatron was.

I don't think that goo literally formed Cybertron's core. It seemed more like an underground pocket not unlike petroleum or natural gas on Earth.
Plus, how do we know that the Autobots weren't aware of this stuff? I've always thought, contrary to Primal's illogical belief, that most of Cybertron's organic matter (possibly excepting the goo) post-dated contact with Earth. The skeletons of Earth creatures could simply be the two-or-so century-old remains of animals Maximal scientists created when they developed the first DNA scanners.



On subject, I'd like to get BM. It would make good reference material in creating fan fiction which would deal with the inconsistencies in Primal's beliefs with Transformers reality.

It's probably 6 DVDs.

I recently bought Warner Bros. Thundercats season 1, and it too is marked as having 3 DVDs. However, while there is three DVD cases, each case actually has a flap for another DVD. It was actually 6 DVDs.

Let's be honest, the compression for each episode - 26 episodes on three DVDs - would be poor and WB doesn't release poorly transferred DVDs - at least, I haven't seen any yet.

Optimus Prime had to explain Vector Sigma to some Autobots.
He had to basically TELL them what created them was sitting right in the hollows of Cybertron all that time.

Maybe the "goo" is what kept the Organic parts of the techno organics alive. {I mean, living flesh needs some nutrients...}

You know, such things could have been a very "need to know" basis.

It could have been a very definitive "We say the world is flat, therefore it is flat" situation at the Autobots time period.

Stating that all of the sudden, what every Cybertronian was "programmed" to think about their planet, is just found out as wrong

I know there would be a lot of Cybertronians would wouldn't be as so bold.

However, evidently, someone started the "world is round" debate somewhere...

Nor does it prove that it was completely inorganic.

Here's a new link I found about the DVD release. I was going to post this as a new subject until I found this thread. Let's keep hoping that this is really true and then all the Transformers episodes that are linked from the 1984 series will be available.
