I know it might be too early to say for certain, but how is Prime stacking up to Animated so far?
well the autobot cast is almost exactly the same, the girls are both hyper. that's similar
its way way more gritty and darker, but for sure need to see more to make a solid comparison.
Too early to say.
I don't think it's fair to compare them for a couple of reasons:
1. TFA is over and done with, but we're only two episodes in with Prime.
2. Their tones are completely different.
Based solely on the first 2 episodes? just as epic. though its hard to tell if that will cary over to the rest of the series
Based on initial impressions Prime wins hands down with me. I had to force myself to watch Animated, though once I did (doing so after the series ended I might add) my opinion of it drastically changed.
But compared to Animated reaction time, Prime is doing a LOT better with me. Still hate the movie designs but they are SOO much better than the Chinformers.
Completely different series with different focus so I don't think you can really compare, but I think Prime will be more enjoyable for me.
Tho in the parts where its possible to compare, Prime got much better animation and music so far.
the chins slipped my mind for a minute there... no more lenoformers!!!
It's not really fair to compare yet, but it's shaping up to be just as awesome.
in some ways tfp is less annoying, in some ways at least in tfa, the writers knew what they were doing.
while they don't have mega chins, they don't have noses ether. "ET phone home"
Those are great assumptions to make two episodes into a new series.
While they have totally different tones, and thus difficult to compare directly, in terms of entertainment value and "it" factor, Prime is shaping up to be just as great as Animated. While Prime might not have the same degree of fanwankage that Animated had, it makes up for it by being the Transformers I think many of us wanted. In that despite having kids, it's still all played "straight".
yeah i'm burnt still from the movies (even if its mostly bays fault) so it will be hard for them to regain my trust, giving it a movie sequel feel isn't helping. but hey, ill stick around, there is a spark of potential
I'm so sick of non talking bumblebee! Was ok in first movie, but should have been fixed for second. I hope his voice vets fixed fast. Bulkhead is cool like in animated. Wish we had old prowel and more guys like in G1. this show seems to be following the "war for cybertron" game and novel "exodus" with the dark energy. I so far am not that I
Pressed. Animated had a better story. So far this show is dark which I like, but I hate starscream and soundwave with no face.
Ps, what mother would be ok with her 16 hear old riding an expensive motorcycle and accept such a lame excuse on how he got it? The "Mom, I'm an adult" might have worked for the 80's but not now. Also not very responsible to suggest that at 16 a child should be able to ride a motorcycle.
Bumblebee talks. For crying out loud, he talks.
Not speaking English does not make one mute.
he does not talk, i dont even think the autobots understand him, raf is telepathic
Optimus understood Bumblebee perfectly in that scene after the Eradicon fight.
Animated IMO is better than Prime. At least Bee talked and Bulkehead was likeable. My wife saw him and Prime and was turned off. She liked the gentle giant Bulkhead. Also Animated has a better Soundwave and Starscream that aren't gaunt and bland in color scheme. Plus Animated Megatron was a beast. Bee is basically a giant Mini con and the 3 kids are annoying. Sari been the best human in a long time.
can we say he is mute and uses an electrical device to assist in communicating. (even if the electrical device is himself) like how people who communicate using their hands are still mute, even if they have other means to communicate
