    I enjoyed it. A lot of people complaining about it... It's only 5 minute episodes. It's hard to get a deep story with 8 five minute episodes. The writing could have been better... but eh. I enjoyed it. I'd like to see a full blown series with this tone.

    I watched this series last year and almost forgot it exited until recently. I know it was low budget and all, but I don't feel it's hyperbole to say that Combiner Wars was probably one of the worst pieces of storytelling media I've ever had the displeasure of sitting through. The voice acting ranged from tolerable to atrocious. I didn't hate Jon Bailey as Optimus as much as I thought I would, but for some reason all of the Decepticons sounded like teenagers with lisps. There was no actual combining in the entire series (aside from ol' Dormammu at the end). Any kind of backstory for the plot or characters was vague or nonexistent, and the storyline and character reasoning was nonsensical. The whole thing felt like a bunch of cliches written around '86 movie references.

    There was one single moment I enjoyed. Just watch up until the 26:48 mark: https://youtu.be/CGX5qN4947A?t=1579

    Sort of. A problem with the Transformers brand is that there is a lot of stuff labeled "G1", but that doesn't mean it all necessarily fits in the same timeline. So yes, this series (and toyline) is technically G1, but it may or may not take place in the same timeline as the '80s cartoon, or the Marvel comics.
