Anonymous asked: What do you feel about the whole dinosaur alt-mode thing Rescue Bots has got going for it for Season 3? I am both excited and a bit afraid, haha.

I’m really excited since all the dino-modes look really neat and creative. Plus, they’ve set up the existence of robot dinosaurs on the island since episode 1 of season 1.

And dinosaurs are cool, so…

thejokesterearth3alive asked: I am remaining optimistic about the new RiD show but I do have two major worries. I wonder what effects Grimlock being a Con will have on continuity and I really hope that the Decepticons are not just "villains of the week" and have some cohesion among them. What about you?

Yeah, the Grimlock thing bugs me since I was such a big fan of the games, and the Rage of the Dinobots/Beast Hunters comics, which presented a very specific characterization and backstory for Grimlock; all of which seems to have gone out the window with what we’ve seen so far. However, I’ve got a couple theories…

  1. Transformers RiD will take the same approach to canon and being a sequel to TFP as TFP took to the games. IE: character names, some events, and some items will remain the same, but mostly it’s a completely new story

  2. Transformers RiD will be a direct sequel to TFP… but will mostly ignore the comic continuity, and thus most things to do with the Dinobots (this is what I think will probably happen)
  3. Transformers RiD will incorporate comic continuity as thus what we’ve seen of new Grimlock’s look and personality is meant to be strange. IE: Something happened to him between the end of the Beast Hunters comic and the beginning of RiD which will be revealed later
  4. Related to the above point, what if this new Grimlock isn’t the Grimlock from the comics, but rather a clone created by Shockwave? This would explain the Decepticon symbols and potentially the memory issues

As for the Decepticons in RiD, reading this bit from the NYCC panel made me pretty hopeful we’ll see some variety:

The Decepticons all have their own motives. Some are just happy to be free. Some want off of Earth. Some have bigger plans.. (x)

I think this leaves room for both one-off adventure episodes while still building towards a larger plot throughout the season.

Anonymous asked: Too soon to say, but with Rescue Bots and the new RID show, that means there are going to be TWO shows that doesn't have Optimus in the main character spotlight. Thoughts?

Basically I think it’s pretty cool to see some creativity in terms of the main character line-ups. In terms of RiD, this isn’t just referring to the lack of Optimus but the fact that the entire main cast is composed of either new characters (Fixit and Strongarm), one relatively obscure character (Sideswipe), and a re-design of a decently popular classic character so that he both looks and sounds little like what people remember him as (Grimlock). Leaving only Bumblebee being the immediately recognizable one.

But in terms of the franchise moving away from Optimus, I also think this

Filed under out transformers rescue bots optimus prime transformers rid I doubt that Optimus will remain of RiD's plot line altogether but we'll have to see Anonymous

Oh hey, the Rescue Bots episode I worked on in between Korra Book 3 and 4 is out.
I was really worried the animators would hate me for asking for those perspective shots.

EDIT: Just watched the episode. SO glad they fixed the ending.

When you say “fixed the ending”, how do you mean? Like in a storyboarding sense or did the plot of the ending change?
