Transformers Cybertron

Show Summary

In the new series, OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOTS face the greatest danger in all eternity, a menace that threatens not only the survival of the TRANSFORMERS, but the very existence of CYBERTRON, the home of the TRANSFORMERS race, and the universe itself. This next installment is "more than meets the eye" with a complex story of intrigue and surprises, and a reminder to fans what it means to be "ROBOTS IN DISGUISE"! The stage of the Transformers battles are various planets in the universe. A black hole which appears at the end of an intense Transformers battle and others fighting begins to be swallowed by a star & the universe has met the crisis of its disappearance/destruction. The Cybertron forces of justice is led by Optimus Prime. While in order to protect the entire universe, they encounter the inhabitants of various planets, the evil forces of Megatron unfolds a fight. Optimus Prime: Optimus Prime is a leader in the best sense of the word, taking point on every mission and never sending his team into any situation he wouldn't go himself. Dedicated to the protection of all life and the preservation of freedom for all sentient beings, he serves as a role model for his fellow Autobots. It is through his keen intelligence, even hand, steady nerves and endless compassion that the Autobots sontinue to frustrate de Decepticons evil plans again and again. In a desperate race against time, Optimus Prime has been forced to send teams of his best soldiers into unknown parts of the Universe in search of the lost planet keys, ancient artifacts with the power to save Cybertron and the rest of the Universe from the giant black hole formed from the implosion of Unicron. Jetfire: He is sincere & is a vice-commander whose reliance is also thick. He is also a realist who can clearly advocate objections from a clear point of view to make difficult judgments & simultaneously manages the given command exactly when it is given. At the time of the Earth migration, he proposed disguising himself so not to disturb the Earth governments. Hot Shot: A natural leader with a lot yet to learn, Hot Shot often races straight into danger at top speed. He takes great pride in the fact that he's the fastest Autobot there is, but it isn't until he gets to the Speed Planet that he learns the true meaning of velocity. Faced by the almost unbeatable Override, Hot Shot needs to learn a whole new way of thinking about acceleration before he can win the Great Race. Landmine: With a wisdom born of experience, and a tactical knowledge unmatched among the Autobot ranks, Landmine is a soldier other 'bots follow without reservation. He suffered heavy injuries in the final fight with Unicron. After a crash-landing on Earth, he was repaired by the new human allies of the Autobots. An excellent battlefield commander, he's determined to prevent the Decepticons from gaining an edge by recovering the Earth Cyber Planet Key. Overhaul/ Leobreaker: One tough Autobot, Overhaul has never thought much of intellectual pursuits. His solution to a complex problem is generally to stomp on it until it gets simple or stops being a problem. He's never felt that he's had the respect his strenght deserves from the other Autobots, but now that he's on the Jungle Planet - where might makes right - he feels right at home. Override eventually taps into the Jungle Planet key and is reformatted into Loebreaker, a mighty lion Transformer. With his new form, he can link with Optimus and form the mighty savage claw mode. Scattorshot: Probably the most neurotic Autobot ever created, Scattorshot always gets the job done. As the right hand 'bot to Jetfire in protecting Earth, he worries so much about messing up in front of his legendary commander that he sets a nearly impossible standard for himself. Despite his nervous clumsiness, he somehow never seems to fail, but his good luck just serves as proof to him that somewhere in the universe is a huge stone of bad karma just waiting for the right moment to come crashing down on him. Vector Prime: Vector Prime is one of the first Transformers. A powerful, wise and incredibly ancient warrior, he has served as protector over Cybertron since its beginnings. Pulled out of the shadows of time by a distress signal broadcast by his damaged planet, he arrives too late to save Cybertron without assistance. Arising from an era in which all Transformers lived in harmony, he is unaware of the conflict between the Autobots and Decepticons, a fact that Megatron uses to trick him and steal the map to the lost planets and the planet keys. Realizing his mistake, he joins Optimus Prime and pledges his knowledge and skill to the desperate quest to retrieve the planet keys before Megatron. Override: Long-time champion and leader of the Speed Planet, Override is always ready for a race. Acceleration is her only ideal, but she respects anyone with the guts to challenge her. She's faced and beaten thousands of upstart speedsters in her time. At first she's suspicious of the intentions Hot Shot and th Autobots have for her world's Cyber Planet Key, but once she realizes what's at stake she's only too glad to help. The Minicons Jolt, Six Speed and Reverb: Small Transformers with many mysteries accompanying Vector Prime. They are full of curiosity and enjoy interaction with the children. Their information of Earth is promptly absorbed through the INTERNET. Snarl: This wolf bot joined the Autobot forces on Jungle Planet where he helped Override sift through the elements. He was accused of being a traitor by Scourge, but Leobreaker refused to let him die allowing Snarl to join the Autobots. His wolf form gives him great speed against his enemies, and his pride make him a willing servant to all the Autobots. Decepticon Forces: Megatron: For millions of years, Megatron has lead fanatical legions of evil Decepticons on their war for conquest of the Universe. A living weapon with dozens of self-inflicted modifications made in the name of increased power and destructive capability, his only weakness is his single-minded desire for the enslavement of the Universe. His intellect, ego and talent for deception are second to none, and he rules his Decepticons with an iron-fisted combination of fear and force of personality. Driven by a nearly insane lust for power, Megatron managed not only to survive the catastrophic implosion of Unicron, but also to absorb much of his power. Now, wearing salvaged pieces of the ancient destroyer's armor, Megatron is awesomely powerful, and is determined to beat Optimus Prime and the Autobots to the lost planet keys. Starscream: Unsurpassed in ego or ambition, Starscream is the scheming second-in-command to Megatron. With his mastery of the sword, null-ray cannons that can disrupt the functioning of even the most hardened Autobot and a vast array of secondary weapons, Starscream is second only to Megatron and Optimus Prime in power. His speed is uncanny, oftne giving slower 'bots the impression that he actually teleports around the battlefield. Left stranded on Earth to battle Jetfire - the only Autobot warrior capable of even coming close to matching Starscream for speed or skill in aerial combat - he plots to seize a Cyber Planet Key for himself in order to gain the power he needs to finally overthrow Megatron and take command of the Decepticon army himself. Though his battle prowess is legendary, he lacks the practical intelligence to hide his ambition from his leader, and Megatron is more than aware of his plotting. Thundercracker: This loyal Decepticon works under the command of Starscream for the recovery of the Planet Key on Earth. Thundercracker believes that the most effective way to defeat an enemy is to terrorize and demoralize him before attacking. The mere sound of his focused sonic booms - audible for more than 200 miles - is enought to frighten many other Transformers. Crumplezone: Trusting but dumb, Crumplezone is often drawn into serving as the muscle to back up the paranoid plotting of his partner Ransack. Huge, powerful and superfast, Crumplezone is sometimes surprised by sudden turns. Not that it matters - he's the biggest guy on the Speed Planet, and crashing straight ahead through whatever gets in his way is his specialty. Twin-turbine ramjets can propel him at nearly the speed of sound, and selective thrust reversal allows him to fire hypersonic, high-explosive slugs nearly 12 miles. Ransack: Skittish and suspicious, Ransack is a loudmouth bully, always ready to intimidate others into giving him what he wants, but only when his big partner Crumplezone is around. With the energy of the Speed Planet flowing through his circuitry, everything about him is fast - sometimes too fast. Unable to stop thinking or moving, his hyperactive mind tends to draw connections between unconnected things, and sees conspiracy everywhere. Dirt Boss: A wild outlaw, rugged villain of the rough backwaters of the Speed Planet, those who are fooled by the sheer size of Dirt Boss into thinking he's slow are soon left choking on his exhaust. He lives to pound his opponents into the dust and leave them spinning their wheels - that's if he decides to leave the wheels attached. Hot Shot is certain to learn some tough lessons from him. Scourge: Scourge is the brutal and awesomely powerful ruler of the Jungle Planet. He views any display of kindness, compassion or generosity as weakness, and he hates weakness. Cold, distant, and prone to violent rage against those he views as lesser creatures, he holds most of the Jungle Planet firmly in his transmetal claw. Those defying him are likely to experience the searing heat of his stellar plasma breath, or the bite of his axe as their final sensation before their spark is extinguished. Overhaul, Snarl, and the Jungle Planet rebels will find him to be the most powerful foe they have ever faced. Sideways: This Transformer claims to be a spy for the Autobots, but he has joined Starscream at trying to overthrow Megatron's regimine and is now watching Starscream as he is filled with the power of Primus. He has the ability to shift the logo on his outfit, but it is unknown if he really is working for either side, or if he has his own plans in mind. Humans: Coby: A proud 14 year old boy who is proficient in repairs and reconstruction of mechanisms. Under the influence of his father who was a racer, motor crossing has become his hobby. He is vigorous and a cheerful character, but in secret, he worries about the comparison with the excellent records of his older brother and has thoughts of wanting to be accepted/recognized by his father is strongly above necessity. Brad: He is the 11 year old younger brother of Coby. He loves to watch "B" movies of Sci-Fi, Kung Fu and crime, and imitates them well. Although his wild way of thinking is shocking, it invites humor, which occasionally has even saved him in time of crisis. His communication with the Mini-Cons is possible without intentionally knowing why. Lori: This 14 year old city girl is taken to the country by her parents who have a taste for the outdoors. Although it is a harsh place, she stubbornly continues her city lifestyle. She cannot adhere to phenomenon that much, but her different sense of values can be accepted. Professor Suzuki: This scientist was looking for life on other planets when she ran into the kids in her lab. Later on her way to search in the Antartic she paid for heavy coats for the kids and ended up learning about the Autobots. Now she tries to search for any skills that will assist the Transformers at saving Earth. Colonel Franklin: his military man has been searching for Transformers so he could thank them for saving his life when he was a kid, but his disguise is to make it look like he is preventing aliens from invading Earth.

  • Disappointing....

    2.5
    This is a very big disappointing for transformer fans, well this show was quite stale and boring, the animation and visuals are also boring. Ok, lets talk about the plot. The plot is all about those kids who curiously saw the crater, but then it was a colored colored which the robot is dead.



    Ok, Ok, OK im serious this show really stinks because why the kid are hand-drawn and the robots are CGI I really hate when a thing is hand-drawn and the another thing is made of CGI. Remember this is a big disappointing for transformers.



    I recommended you should watch the transformers from the 80's, the 2007 transformers movie and the revenge of the fallen movie too.moreless
  • I believe this was one of the better series that hasbro has made(or whoever made this). Love the Hot Shot Override interaction. ^_^

    9.5
    Aww come on, give it a chance i mean the creators can oly have so many ideas and this, i think, was a very good one. Although not as good as armada I think it is slimly behide the armada series. I'll admit some episodes were a snore to watch but most of them were exciting. I enjoyed the ones were a few characters had their own personal stories, like Hot shot my fav. Swear to god him and override should become and item. ^_^ Many autobots went through changes that made them better in the long run. (except hot shot who should have stayed in his fast model, his new heavier modle makes me made) But other than those little items, an overall good series.moreless
  • I gaved it a decent chance

    7.3
    At first I didn't like cybertron beacause it making G4 going Down Hill, but it was good in a childish sort of why, I wonder why Cartoon Network is re-running it Fuse or IFC would make waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better networks to rerun a G4 series yet I can honestly say I have a rating system for show that are good yet corny at first



    VA-5.9 Cody's Voice sound corny

    AM-7.0 decent yet a transformer's mouth is werid once the move it

    SD-6.0 They replay the them when they tranfsom



    overall-B yet it not my favorite but it good show coundn't the re-run the show on Fuse of IFC instead of CN?moreless
  • I gave it a chance.

    6.1
    so far it seem corny but so ditive so it should go in an earier time on [Adult Swim] or put back on g4 beacause of Baby Looney Tunes, Bleach, & My Gym Parter's A Monkey because something so dictive should not be in a network full of Crap [Exsept Camp Lazlo, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Family Guy, Harvey Birdman: Atterny at Law, Ful Matal Alcment, Bobobo-Bobo-Bobobo, & even Naruto]



    bottom line move it or loose it



    The first time I saw this cartoon was Asult, and I had no idea what I what I was getting myself into - I had never seen the whole episode of this show before.



    I'm not a big corny-joke person, but my cable company had it on their shows that you could pick from and watch... I found this cartoon under comedy, and cried I was laughing so hard... It's comedy is very subtle and a lot of it's humor is in its timing. This was one of the aditvie things I have seen in a very long time.



    I will definitely seek out more episodes. And it's just as funny the second or third time that you see it.



    The show itself is very primitive cartoon figures with quirky personalities, with story lines that make you go "huh? Did he just do what I think he did?" and laughing your butt off. I really think it's just one of those things you have to see for yourself - and if you have a dry sense of humor, you'll really like it. It's probably a love it or hate it type of cartoon.moreless
  • It is tiyiyiyiteeeeeeeeeee.

    9.0
    In my opinion , the only good transformers serise was Energon and Cybertron . This show is cool . Its underappreciated just because in the past it was a little kids show with bad graphics . But this one is awsome . I used to not like this show , but now it is pretty good . I give this show a good 9 out of 10 . So as the Autobots try to get the cyber planet keys , so are the decepticons . The evil decepticons will not give up , so the good autobots will take them down .moreless
