    Set lasers for adorable.

    Because, y'know, they don't have lasers, because they're... forget it, the show should be fun for the little'ns.

    A show dedicated to younger viewers can only mean that TF: Prime will have more woggle room to become darker and more violent and more mature for us more aged fans.

    Im loving TF Prime even more.

    I don't know why but these Rescue Bots look like those little robot heroes a year or so back,I wonder if thats what this new line is based on.I sure hope so,as those things were cute as he**,I got lots of those when they came out,as they were so different from the main tf line.Can't wait to see these and the show too.

    On a TV-Y7 rating? I think they've pushed as far as they can go.

    Prime isn't for us, it's for kids aged 7-12. If you happen to enjoy it anyway, that's a bonus.

    (I'm really getting tired of the phrase 'more violent and more mature'. Getting pret-ty played out.)

    Maybe this show will be fun like Animated was. I don't know what it is about TF: Prime, but it is missing most of that fun.

    So this is basically the equivalent of the "Super Hero Squad"?

    Ehh, I'm sure I'll check it out a little. I say it's good - get the kids into TFs when they're young!

    Not only that, it's similar to the Star Wars Galactic Heroes Animated Series that is coming up as well. What a great era to be 5 years ago.

    Could be, but going by the story book shown at Toy Fair, it could be more Rescue Heroes and Go-Go-GoBots.

    Some time in the 90's the word "mature" came to mean "way more immature than usual". I guess a lable like "designed specifically for 14 year old males" just doesn't sell media to 16 year old males the way a lable like "mature" does.

    Rip his head off, flash some boobs, and drop some f-bombs...like a mature person would do.

    As long as their mischief making Decepticons i might watch this.

    I think it's a good alternative to the Darker Transformers Prime for parents and kids, let the older brothers watch Prime..

    I like Prime fine, but it does often feel overly measured, almost like it's self-conscious about how seriously it should take itself, kinda like a show-wide version of the way Optimus Prime speaks in it. Something more lighthearted and funny would be welcome as a counterpoint, even if it is for the the younger kiddies.

    It'll be fun to see the inevitable complaints that "Rescue Bots" toys and show aren't appealing enough to 20-30-something-year-old sensibilities, however. :)
