Transformers: Cybertron, known as Transformers: Galaxy Force (トランスフォーマー ギャラクシーフォース) in Japan, is a 52-episode series co-produced by Hasbro and Takara, set in the Transformers universe. A corresponding toy line was released with the series. It was aired in Japan as a separate, rebooted Transformers series. In North America, the English dub was presented as a sequel to the previous two series, Transformers: Armada and Transformers: Energon. Scenes were added that linked elements of the Armada and Energon stories to the show, using additional dialogue and reused animation to link the series together. All the original Japanese musical score and sound effects are completely replaced with brand-new American-made musical scores and sound effects in the English dub. In the anime, all of the Transformers are computer-generated, while the humans and backgrounds are rendered in traditional cel animation. It was the last series in the Transformers franchise to be produced in Japan until the release of Transformers Go! in 2013.

Transformers: Cybertron - Reception - Netflix

“Transformers Cybertron showed that both Takara and Hasbro were committed to co-producing a quality show which had a depth of plot and characterization better than any other Transformers show since Beast Wars. Oh, it's not perfect. The repeated use of the same transforming sequences, especially Optimus Prime's, gets old after about a half dozen episodes, and you realize you still have 46 to go! Also, there are no extras of any kind in the seven-disc set. No commentaries, no deleted scenes, nothing. Hasbro and Takara HAVE to do more to appeal to collectors and adult fans. All in all, the best Transformers show since Beast Wars.”

Tim Janson, a reviewer for Mania.com, wrote:

Michael Drucker at IGN, reviewed the Transformers Cybertron: A New Beginning DVD, criticizing it as “A lackluster update on classic characters with minimal plot”. The video quality was criticized for compression artifacts. The DVD was also criticized for its lack of extra features. Overall, the DVD was given a “bad” rating of 3 out of 10. The syndicated series that aired on Kids' WB ended early on a cliffhanger at “Revelation” (also permanently ending their afternoon program block) and didn't air any more episodes after that.
