    The first episode just premiered. The opening animation didn't contain any new animation AFAIK, but just used clips from the show, with some stock photos. The opening song itself was horrible, and really didn't fit the animation.

    I don't remember seeing anything changed in the episode (Update: Seems there was edits), though all the robots like announcing that they're going to "Transform" a lot. Music remained the same, except the opening/closing credits. The closing credits fit the show a lot better. I don't know who performed it though.

    Then we were cut to a group of 5 Japanese women who were playing around. They were transforming Bumblebee. The narrator from the show was talking to them... Then we got a skit about the Arms Micron. It was in really bad CG.

    Edit: I was making this thread and was just beaten here by 2 minutes.

    That opening is the LEAST Transformers Prime opening ever.

    Transformers Evo would have fit Prime much better than this.

    How long do you think before we'll see some fansubs go up? I can take or leave the music (though I admit the ending sounds much, much better than the opening), but what I really wanna hear is the characters' Japanese voices...

    Just as along they don't mess up the characters and story like in Beast Wars in the dub then I'm cool with it.

    No, I'm fine with it, too.

    I'm not crazy about the idea of changing stuff within the episodes, though.

    Was that...the Cybertron version of Cybertron?

    Takara hates Transformers: Prime. That's the only explanation for their complete failure in importing the show and its toys. That, or they only watched it in English without subtitles and didn't understand it.

    I've seen AMVs with better editing and music than that intro.

    Well, for completely missing the point, it wasn't half bad.
