    I'm giving this show a chance. I didn't watch Animated when it was airing because I hated the animation style and designs at first so I ended up missing out on the best Transformers cartoon since Beast wars...

    I just hope this will air on YTV or something...

    Hell to the Yes.

    It looks beautiful. But then again, G1 is the only time I excuse blocky designs.

    I tend to prefer naturally sleak and rounded off curves, a more natural look. Arcee alone evokes one of my favorite characters of all time, so that alone screams must watch.

    The rest all depends on story and voice acting.

    Its like they said screw it when it came to Arcee's design. No way can the motorcycle transform into that robot. Ton of animation cheats there. Where did the wheels go? I'd think in her ankles but it sure doesn't look like it.

    Still watching the show though.

    I'll give it a shot, just to see, then I'll decide.

    Everytime I see stuff like this, I keep thinking of the same comments aimed at animated. No way can that transform, toys won't match, etc.

    Yet, that toyline was the most accurate we've ever had just about. They pulled it off just fine. I have faith with them on this here eventually too. Just not anytime soon for them to figure it out. xD

    I'll give it a chance like everyone else. If it doesn't win me over after a couple of episodes, i'm done.


    Maybe i'm just old but reboots are starting to annoy me a lot:banghead: .

    I seriously doubt that Hasbro, being more involved in this show than any before it, would allow designs they weren't sure they could create toys of. I don't understand how anyone could look at ROTF Prime and Starscream and think that something simpler (as these are) couldn't be pulled off. Arcee will most likely share a similar transformation as Animated Prowl (one of the coolest toys ever in my opinion).

    As for the show, I'm watching this. It looks like they're headed Clone Wars style (I mean the designs remind me of Clone Wars), they have Peter Cullen and Frank Welker, they seem committed to more than one season already, and it appears they want to tell a really good story with the mythology... I don't care for Bee's design... and these overall definitely aren't my favorite designs, but I think they're more than enough. Decent designs + excellent voice cast + dedicated creative team = epic show.

    Not to mention this line could be the first like G1 in a minute, with a plethora of characters and a 3-4 year run.... I'm in. I don't see how you could be a Transformer fan and not be in, at least to give it a try.

    I hope since this is in hasbro's hands, and no one elses that it does continue on.

    Every series prior to this had someone else in control but hasbro.

    BW-BM, was the first time a reboot happened after a series. Because Fox and others said it was too G1 heavy. Then came RiD as filler, then came the era of co-doing anime with takara which made neither side get quite what they wanted. (ie Armada and energon line up but cybertron doesn't and it's all not how hasbro envisioned it.) Then animated came, which hasbro tried to keep going, and YTV managed to snag us a 3rd season, but with CN in control, hasbro had no say in it staying or going even though they wanted it to stay. CN getting the ad revenue, and making poor decisions killed animated. Not Hasbro.

    Now? Hasbro is in pure control. It'll stay as long as they see fit, and as long as it's profitable (high ratings for ad revenue) it'll be fine. If toys come eventually, that'll help as well. The problem with a new show, is you have to pitch the ad value to commercial people, but a proven show? It has a baseline to use for that, and even create demand from the commercial people to want their commercials to be seen with that show since it has a high percentage of people watching.

    Well, I certainly hope to, but since I don't have cable I'll have to try to watch it on Youtube. I'm loving everything I've seen of it thusfar, so I'll do whatever I have to to watch it.

    Hasbro may up episodes on their site, and if not, we need to beg them to.

    Pirating this by any means is a bad idea. Mostly because hasbro needs a way to gauge this for viewership to best know a baseline for advert sales during it, whether it's online or on channel.

    This time, when we pirate it, we'll be taking money directly out of hasbro's hands, as opposed to other times when it was a third party handling the show, and profiting from ad revenue.

    Alright, "by any means" may have been a bad choice of words. I would MUCH rather watch this "officially" than on YouTube, and I won't touch any pirate sites with a ten foot pole, but I'll put it this way, since there's no way I'm getting cable: if it's not uploaded to their site, and I don't watch it on Youtube, it's a lose-lose. I lose because I don't get to see it, and Hasbro loses because I won't spend as much money on TFP toys. And really, I think toy sales will be a big gauge of whether or not TFP's going to last.

    I want that arcee in toy form so bad. In 4 skittles colors too please.
    White, Green, Red/pink, and the standard blue. xD
    She's the exact Arcee re-envisionment I've always wanted. Though arcee as the name is whatever, but that design, god does it make me giddy, can't wait to see it in motion.

    It seems a little silly to me to skip out on a show I haven't even seen yet. The designs look fantastic except for baby-hands prime (and even then it's only the hands, the rest of him is fine).

    I'm kinda nervous though because the way they have been talking about the series makes me think that it might not get a proper toy line (but would get something akin to the WFC treatment) and instead just continue with their current lines while Prime runs as a "catch-all" blanket series (which would be madness indeed).

    And for the record the Arcee is fawesome.
