    I would think this is the perfect forum since Toyark is about the toys and the movie foum is about the movie. So go ahead and start discussing....

    Weird designs asside I have hope for the new series. I think it will have the best writing we have ever seen.

    It's going to have to do a lot better with what its currently aimed to be at a super hero type theme to beat Beast Wars. BW probably has the best writing of any series so far imo The new animated series will be aimed at the younger audience, we're not even sure how death will be treated. I doubt we'll get another death as cool as Dinobot's.

    But on the upside, I am quite optimistic about the show. I don't mind the designs too much.

    I am looking forward to the show but probably the toy line even more. Some of the toys are really looking good.

    I'm indifferent about Animated at the moment. I really like a fair few of the designs (and there are very few I outright dislike). Only things I really don't like at the moment are:

    1) Superhero plot-line thing...
    2) The horrific Tara Strong voiced girl...THING (much as I like Tara, not even she can save this character)
    3) The transformations (watching the clip from SDCC...what is with body parts like..popping out of things?)
    4) Bumblebee's voice (WHY?!?!?!?)

    I expect Animated will get it's own forum once the episodes start airing and people start to discuss them.

    Movie discussion would have overwhelmed TFGD if it wasen't seperated. Cartoons have never generated the volume of posts to do that and theres never been a good reason to do it otherwise.

    Thats without getting into the logistical and efficency issues involved. More forums means cannabilising traffic from existing ones that already work well, increasing the complexity of the database and finding more man hours of competent policing.

    This place has been around for donkeys years and the staff know how to run a sucessful Transformers message board. If something is or isn't here, then there is a good reason for it.

    Doubtful. None of the other cartoons got their own sub-forum.

    The reason why the movie got one is because it was a huge thing that brought in a ton of new members who wanted to talk about the movie. If a movie sub-forum hadn't been created we'd have had to deal with tons of threads here in TFGD that would completely drown out any non-movie discussions. That's not going to happen with the new cartoon.

    Wow. Me circa two years ago was totally wrong about Animated getting a sub-forum.
