In 2015, Cy-Kill began hosting ''Renegade Rhetoric'', a Facebook feature endorsed by Hasbro. The in-story explanation being the Cy-Kill from the cartoon wound up in the dimensional hub-world of Axiom Nexus and was gathering power to return to Gobotron in triumph. The feature is decidedly tongue-in-cheek, as Cy-Kill is more than happy to take potshots at the Transformers universe. He argues, for example, that ''Renegades'' is a lot more ambiguous and potentially trustworthy than naming your group ''Decepticons''. The bulk of the answers describe plots for a season 2 of ''Challenge of the [=GoBots=]'' purportedly produced in an alternate universe where the franchise won the robot toy war of 1980s and went on to have several decades of spin-off media (all of it similar in description to various ''Transformers'' works in our reality, with Transformers making cameos in media where Gobots appeared in corresponding stories).
