Yeah but that’s been a thing since the inception of the Primus concept from the beginning.



Even in Transformers vs. G.I. Joe when the see the face of god the Joes comment on him looking like Rodders.

For cartoon continuity however had Unicron be the creation of the mad scientist Primacron who had a nameless assistant that’s body was destroyed by Unicron but his essence survived in the form of the Matrix in a visual that was never explained thus leading fan speculation for years of "could that be Primus?" and in over the last decade it was the Japanese G1 continuity that made it official and that started with Kiss Players.

I think there are a few flaws with the idea that the 2001 version of Robots in disguise is part of G1. For one thing, is fortress maximus supposed to be the one from headmasters or Super god masterforce?

That obviously led to it’s own set of headaches for fans, like trying to figure out if characters like Optimus prime and Megatron are meant to be the same ones from the G1 cartoon continuity or their own characters.

A new Ratchet figure is not surprising after all they make an Ironhide they make a Ratchet.
But it’s a Walgreens exclusive?
Then again I guess it’s better the a BotCon make your own figure class figure.

And then there’s those three rainmaker seekers showing up. I know people like things to be G1/cartoon accurate but their colour schemes really leave a lot to be desired… having no breaks in the colour makes them look awful, like cheapo knockoff shit.

Yeah, every Hasbro show, except for my little pony, had all but one season removed from Netflix. Of course, even that show went through a weird period recently on Netflix that had many people confused and uncertain about whether or not it was being removed completely or simply being reduced to one season.

The really bizarre thing with MLP is that all of the EQG movies and specials stayed up on Netflix… EXCEPT the first film.


@09MurphyM

Well, yeah, but considering what happened with the Saban’s Masked Rider rights (TL;DR they lapsed in such a way that it legally CAN’T be re-released), who even knows what happened with RID.

The really bizarre thing about RID 2001 is that it had MULTIPLE full series DVD releases in the UK.

Also, I’m pretty sure that the episode "Sky-Byte Saves The Day" never aired in the US thanks to the episode’s plot revolving around a skyscraper being attacked (for obvious reasons), but it WAS dubbed.

Officially, the rights should be with Hasbro and takara. Disney only really had rights to air the show.

And the do they’ve new toys like Sky-Byte and in Takara Tomy’s case also a redeo of the Combaticons as the Commandos.
But this is about the show specifically RiD and I’m just pointing out that it’s unfortunate even weird that with the Saban deal Hasbro didn’t get that with it.
