    Let's face it.

    We know there's Rodimus Prime, Cyclonus, Hot Shot, Red Alert, Strika, Blackout, Spittor, Brawn ... there's a new design sheet for Arcee, we've seen Jetfire and Jetstorm (who have an AWESOME back story) and they combine (something people have been asking for) and we're getting MORE Starscream repaints (Activators Dirge) who I've heard from a pretty good source will be in Season 3 ...

    The cartoon has been excellent up to this point, it looks like it will only get BETTER with some big plotholes filled in (Sari's origin) as well as fleshing out more characters (Lockdown? Soundwave?) and who only knows what else!

    We're in good hands because we have two Transformers FANS at the helm of the ship (Eric Siebenaler and Derrick Wyatt) who are VERY passionate about this stuff and will only put out something if they it's GOOD (there's the occassional corporate throw-down of course but for the most part they are enthusiastic about what they're releasing).

    The toys are selling, there's another movie to keep interest in the brand big, and Transformers is Hasbro's #1 priority for the first time in Lord only knows how long.

    Don't let two mistransformed pictures throw you off or cast you aside. Maybe the toys don't suit your immediate interest, but you know what? They're pretty fucking cool either way, it's a different design and from the beginning this entire line has taken some "getting used to" because it's not the Transformers we're used to (AND THAT'S A GOOD THING, LACK OF CHANGE IS BAD IN A BRAND THAT'S ENTIRE FOCUS IS "CHANGE").

    If it helps, I have a friend who is psychic and right about 90% of the time and he said Transformers Animated season 3 will not only pick up steam but end up better than season 2. And I called my mom and she agrees.

    :)

    The worst thing about Animated Season 3 is waiting for it :p 

    I can't praise it enough for the seriously cool designs. That Spittor concept may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I love the critter! And Rodimus Prime, well, what can I say? An old favourite revived.

    Jetfire & Jetstorm - awesome combination, I love the fact Hasbro is taking inspiration from all sorts of different places to really enrich the show now.

    The love and dedication really shows. And if season 2 compared to season 1 is anything to go by, season 3 will be epic in a huge way :)

    I REALLY love Animated. It really jumpstarted my love for TF. Also, the toys are great and very accurate. The cartoons hold good stories. I am 30 and of course I have great G1 memories, but if you're objective the cartoons and THE TOYS are way better.
    My 2 sons love them too :) 

    PS: they will probably have the same discussion when TF: 2028 comes out.
    I already see them sitting on the couch 20 years from now:
    Man, this sucks! I hate those 3D glasses and voice controlled toys! TF Animated was way better when I was young;)

    You needed even more testimonials about how your mom and everyone you know think the show is great, but good work, Kicky. :)

    I thought you said Rodimus, Blackout, and all the other leaked designs were meant to appear in a battle scene in episode 1 but the idea was dropped, not that they were going to appear in season 3?

    Anyway, if season 3 blows, there will be enough nerd rage to spawn a new chaos god.

    I persoanlly liked it if the first two seaon were more spread out like most cartoons' yearly season schedule , therefore 80% of the fandom won't keep on complaining about when Season 3 is coming out.
    Well, it's CN's fault.

    The suspense has been a killer but at least there's plenty of fan goodies to get at online. Yea. Too bad there's not enough toys on the shelves >:'C

    I love that you called your mom and she agrees.

    Mom's have a way of making you feel good with the way they keep your hopes alive. I'm not saying it won't happen but why hasn't there been even the slightest bit of news saying either Cartoon Network liked the first 2 seasons or has greenlighted season 3 for at least production

    Other than designs, voice acting and writing team leaked info?

    Maybe they like to surprise the non forum-goons.

    Oh no you can't have it, you have to wait 50 years, after all, Hasbro is all about cruel-y making you wait.

    I had heard (a long time ago) that they were to be in either the premiere or the first couple episodes and it would simply be a battle scene. Derrick Wyatt is the one who said that it's been cut down for time and he wasn't sure if Beachcomber would still show up, or speak, during that time period.

    Whatever other stuff he dismissed he didn't get specific about.

    But I still love him.

    From a distance.

    And court order.
