    One question @Kabam Miike , until when will this mission be available? since now you did not specify it!

    just wait a couple more hours for the new spotlight to start. the countdown timer will tell you. it'll probably be the typical 4 weeks. crossing fingers for the 3 mins recharge timer

    Boy , Is he big !
  • Are the mini bosses kinda like the ambushes like we got during Galvatron's spotlight (way back then) to give us a chance to familiarise ourselves with the featured bots' abilities

    No ambushes (yet)... at least in Chapter 2, you know who you're facing. Bayverse Bee is the 2.1 Miniboss (with ROTF Megs as the Final Boss), and G1 Bee is the 2.2 Miniboss (with G1 Megs as the Final). Have not reached Chapter 3 yet, but I know the Final Boss in 3.1 is Galvatron, and the 3.2 Final Boss is Megatronus. So my guess is that the mini-boss in 3.1 is a bot from the Ultra Magnus era, and I have no guess about the mini-boss in 3.2 paired with Megatronus (maybe a PotP/BW bot?).
  • Just fought chapter 1.1 jetfire. No pictures but jetfire looks really cool.

  • @Kabam Miike why is Megatronus a boss again? I thought we sealed him away "forever?"

    So the new bot is the boss in only the first mission?
  • @Kabam Miike why is Megatronus a boss again? I thought we sealed him away "forever?"

    I like that he's back because to be honest, he left WAY too soon.

    I’m quite disappointed that Megatrononous is no longer eternally sealed in hell to be the final boss, again.. it would be funny to see an unblockable 2, power gain,... basically master blaster’s mods on jetfire :joy:
  • Ah, toy and toy commercial Jetfire were best Jetfire. I wish they were canon, even if they were blatant robotech and macross ripoffs.

    Check Jetfire's toy history.
    Not a ripoff.
    That's what happens when you license random toys from different companies in Japan.
    Or Korea, in Shack-wave's case

    So, turns out the mini-boss in 3.1 from the Ultra Magnus era was, in fact, Ultra Magnus. I went through 3.2 too quick to identify a mini-boss, but... well... just read through the story in 3.2.

    OK, this intrigued me, Kabam Miike... Dark Realm... you don’t suppose we’re about to see the emergence of another One of the 13 Primes, do you? Like, say, Nova/Nemesis Prime?

    It’s just a diversion. A few spotlight missions ago they teased combiners by mentioning the Enigma of Combination and that only led us to Megatronus. All this talk of Dark Realm and what not is probably the same and we’ll just end up fighting Megatronus at the end.

    That's actually already confirmed, Megatronus is the final boss of this spotlight ( Or galvatron ) Anyways, those 2 are the boss of chapter 3

    But now, the question is, what if the dialogue this time is really pointing out some hint on the new bot ? I saw earlier a post about a " titan ". I can only see 2 titan coming in this game in the near future
    Unicron, and G1 Predaking. Both confirmed by leaks, and the first one, confirmed as boss of act 4, and probably not playable.
    So that just left us with Predaking, which I would be more than happy to welcome.
    I didn't finished the spotlight myself, so I don't have all the dialogues in my head, but let's just wait and see.
    And of course, hope for the best.

    Predaking is a combiner, not a Titian.

    But Megatronous and Galvatron are the final bosses, and both are Heralds of Unicron.

    Actually he is now. It was a part of the Power of the Primes toy release, they held a poll to see who would be the next Prime and he won.

    Awesome post. Who are the other candidates?
  • Darm0kDarm0k Posts: 1,765
    Regarding the Bumblebee mini bosses. I can get that they’re from a different reality where they’re fighting on the Decepticon’s side. But why are they still touting the Autobot symbol in the dialogs?

    That’s a different continuity, though. The version of Primal in Forged to Fight is the original, who was pulled from the Beast Wars continuity, and is not a ‘Prime’.

    The Power of the Primes version of Primal was given a different back story, and arguably quite a different character. He’s from a different planet (Eukaris) and is actually millions of years older than the Beast Wars version of the character. I don’t know why they [Hasbro] decided to go that route and make it almost a completely different character, but they did.

    Maybe this is just Kabam's made up continuity. They reference events from the Prime Wars Saga and the G1 cartoon as if both shows were one continuity separate ones. In the game, the Beast Wars' show Primal exists in the same timeline as Megatronus, who was in the PotP cartoon, which had a different Primal, so I'm guessing they just merged the 2 ideas together to see if it would stick.

    Man, continuity is confusing.

    Yeah, I hated what they did to him in PotP. He was such a nothing character that was just crammed in.

    Actually, I re-ran 3.2 and, unlike the previous levels, there are different mini-bosses depending on the path you take. And in 3.2, they are the last bot you face before The Fallen. They are Starscream, Cyclonus, ROTF Megatron, Galvatron, & G1 Megatron.
