He says emphatically in the Rhino interview he was hired to do all the episodes that year. I've seen the same interview, and I didnt take what he said the same way you do it seems. to me he's saying he was hired to do the episodes that were done.Not that he would have done every episode if the show...

All I'm saying is that the early plans for the Headmaster characters was to have them show up in a pilot.

Also, if Rebirth was intended as a pilot why does it have such a 'closed' ending? Galvatron and Zarak bitching a little bit and surviving is nothing compared to the preposterously powerful position the Autobots and 'rebel' Nebulans are put in at the end of the thing. Why is it also so reliant on co...

IIRC a poster named sto_vo_kor made a simlar argument over at seibertron and while I don't recall any proof offered there (and if proof was offered I didn't see it) but sto_vo_kor is generally well reguarded as being fairly trustworthy and knowlegdable on this subject. That's assuming that sto_vo_k...

Also, he was told to finish on a "The end... OR IS IT?!?!?!" style note specifically to ensure kids wouldn't think the toys were ending, when you'd have thought it would have been just as simple to tell him it was in case of a continuation. And, they didn't have enough budget/interest to do five ep...

That's new information, that contradicts every interview David Wise has ever done on the subject where's he's talked specifically about how he was hired to write all the episodes for that year (originally five, then three) with the specific intent of finishing the show; ie there were no plans for a...

I always figured that Transformers meant to stop at episode 95 after the return of optimus prime. Think about it 1) The Rebirth only aired almost a year after Return of optimus prime. Why was there such a gap? Because the REbirth was never planned as being part of the Season 3 story. I suspect Hasb...

the Beast Wars cartoon "piqued" my interest in the fiction, but Takara's Super Fire Convoy brought me back to buying the toys.

Just trying to pool a bit of information and refresh my memory for something for a project I might never get around to doing... What I basically need to do is status check all the Season 1 Autobots from on-screen, and snuffle around for nuggets about them from the various draft scripts which don't ...

Yeh, and those background cameos totally count, really gave closure. Got to love the Transformers nerd mindset - "Oh, you've made a very slight, near-insignificant factual error, which totally changes that your basic observation was spot on". My point was to point out that they were there, not to g...

There is a distinct lack of AI in the transformers , teletraan 1 is probably best semi sentinent and this lack is probably down to the fact is there is a very fine line between AI and the Transformers idea of prison taking a personality and entrapping it in a steel box is probably seen as perverted...

Don't forget American TV seasons don't run straight through but get broken up by repeats, so there'd be an episode on every weekday day but not necessarily a new one (though Transformers seems fairly unique in sticking whatever the current title sequence is on reruns, hence some DVD's having season...

My bad, for some reason I thought they were on a daily schedule still then... They were. Dark awakening was episode 8 of season 3 TRoOP were episodes 29 and 30 of season 3. But I do suspect it was something like that... Season 3 seems to be riddled with budgetary and/or production problems, and pro...

Shatner definitely plays up to the stereotype, and fair play to him.

The one thing that occurs to me is that Dark Awakening and TRoOP were, IIRC, subcontracted to different studios (AKOM and Toei respectively, IIRC). It's possible the episodes were produced more or less at the same time, or at least near enough that neither saw each others' work - Toei could have be...
