    Curious to see what type of TF show they're working on. If there's anything Boulder Media studios has proven it's that they can use a large amount of different animation styles for each occasion.

    Come on, let's get out of the Prime/RID continuity and start something new and major.

    I don't have a problem with RiD but I'd love for a cartoon that is a little more like Animated than Prime.

    AND ACTUALLY HAS A FULL MAINLINE.

    also Micronauts show yassssss
    Can we get a Joe, ROM, and MASK show too?

    New shows for Transformers and Micronauts? Awesome. It would also be nice to see new shows based on Rom, MASK, G.I. Joe, Visionaries, maybe even Inhumanoids / Primordia as well.

    I'm still kind of sore about the previous canceled reboot for Micronauts. Ironically, if I recall correctly, it was Hasbro acquiring the rights to Micronauts which prevented the show from being made.

    YES, let's move on from RiD already.

    I'm still waiting for a full G1 reboot. I'm not sure why Hasbro hasn't directed an Animation studio to do it. It's definitely long overdue.

    Will it be a Animated reboot or just a new series?

    Seriously, they should do what they did with the Thundercats reboot, or the 2002 He-man series. A faithful, but still modernized reboot based on the G1 sunbow cartoon and the Marvel comics.

    We've had G1 reboots, ALL of the previous Transformers shows have been reboots of G1

    We also already have a G1 series.

    It's called Generation 1!

    None of them has been a true reboot. They're all separate entities.

    I want a true reboot like Netflix's Voltron series.

    Precisely my thoughts.

    You could even throw Netflix's Voltron series in there on how to do a true G1 reboot of Transformers.

    I want the two (Transformers and Micronauts) to be tied together and the following:
    Prowl as a cop car AND Barricade
    C/D-list characters, preferably with Swerve as comic relief
    Constructicons
    As much alt-mode variety as RID15, if not more (The Decepticons really were all over the map)
    Another Trainsformer

    What we need is a Hasbroverse cartoon.

    I'm excited to see what they do, animation-wise.
    Hasn't it been semi-vaguely-confirmed/rumored that the next show will be in the Movieverse? And in any case... Do we really need another G1?

    To be honest I want something a little darker but still has charm to it. Not Prime but maybe a step below the High Moon games? Not quite sure but with Rescue Bots and RiD (and the failure of CW) I just want something older fans can get some more enjoyment out of without it being it Bay-levels of edginess. I guess like the IDW comics?

    So has there been any news on whether RID will continue? Will this replace RID? Will this run side by side?
    Fancy seeing you here.

    I want the opposite of this. I want a cartoon. If I want drama, I watch Grey's Anatomy.

    Can't we just have silly fun shows that follow the rule-of-cool, and are good to watch on a lazy saturday morning?
    I miss the days when cartoons really were just over-glorified toy commercials.
    Not that I don't want character development or interesting situations, but I don't want to be dragged down by plot exposition and grimdarkness.

    Like, I want the lighter aspects of MTMTE as a cartoon.
    It doesn't have to be a G1 reboot, it doesn't have to be Animated part two, it should be original and silly and not boring. Prime's budget was wasted on fancy animation and they didn't know what to do with the story. I want good toys with unique and interesting designs, I don't want a divided "Well, these are for young kids and THESE are for younger kids, and THIS stuff is for older kids." Toys should be toys. Give them all unique gimmicks like the Animated toys. A female presence that isn't just "Because we have to"

    How about ten Autobots and seven Decepticons?

    Optimus, Bumblebee, Chromia, Hot Rod, Hardhead, Rhinox, X-Brawn, Elita-1, Red Alert, and some totally new character.

    then for the 'Cons, how about Megatron, Starscream, Shockwave, Sixshot, Dreadwing and Darkwind and Blackarachnia?

    Hardhead can have a Headmaster style gimmick (Although the fiction is more like Japanese headmasters where it's one guy in a bigger body), Red Alert can have swappable tools, make Sixshot a six-changer (Duh), Dreadwing and Darkwind can be a two man combiner, etc.

    Then over the course of the show bring in new characters (Four man Constructicons (Hook, Scrapper, Long Haul, and Mixmaster), ala RiD Build Team, to pump up the Con side, maybe Dinobots?

    Take a little bit from Animated with the Decepticons being an uber powerful threat. Make disguise an important aspect, so neither side can reveal themselves to humans, which allows you to center some action around that. Don't be afraid to mess with "Traditional" characters. The main conflict can be some ancient Cybertronian weapon/artifact/warrior trapped on earth somewhere. Make them stranded with no way to contact Cybertron, and the Decepticons are trying to create a space bridge to bring in an army.

    Make the human military a big enough threat to both sides. Perhaps a rogue faction of Transformer-hunting Cemetery Wind/Skywatch guys, hence the need for disguise.

    I'm just spitballing here.

    Plus it allows for a combined cartoon Hasbroverse that doesn't constantly bring in the trope of "Well, if the Transformers are such a big deal, why doesn't anybody mention them?"

    I don't like anything similar to animated or prime... i would prefer a drawing style like the comics... Return to a more action style show and less childish...

    That's remind me of x-men TAS and his ugly successor x-men evolution... ughhh.
