I think so. They deliberately went the Teen Titan style art to lower our expectations because they knew we'd still watch it anyway, because we'd be dying to know how it turns out anyway. So yea, they went that way just to lower the expectations first, and hide all the goodies like the homages, great voice acting and good storyline. First most of us think its crap but as watch episode by episode every week we like it more and more because of the homages, easter eggs and undeniably the best Megatron ever. Yeap, I think it was all a trick to satisfy us. Transformer fans are tough to please. What do you guys think?
