    So, yesterday I did the traditional "get my kids' opinions on new transformers line" that I do with them every time something new comes out.

    My kids are ages 11, 9, 7, and 2 - here's what they had to say:

    Isaac, 11: They look kind of weird but still cool, the cartoon looks really good when you actually see it moving. He was surprised at how intricate the transformations appear to be on the toys.

    He likes the way the toys look, and plans on getting them, he was also surprised by how much the toys looked like the cartoon.

    His favorite toy from what he saw was Starscream.

    Jacob, 9:
    They look really cool, like Ben 10, their faces are kind of long... the cartoon is weird because of that little girl. He says he read something about human bad guys - that's sort of weird he says, why couldn't the transformers just stomp on them. Over all it seems like he likes the looks of the cartoon a lot.

    His favorite toys were Soundwave (he loved the guitar) and Megatron (he LIKES that he looks similar to movie Megatron).

    Logan, 7: It's awesome (I can says he honestly went apeshit upon seeing it, I'm pretty sure he loved it), he says Bumblebee sounds like Robin from Teen Titians (he says that's a good thing).

    His favorite toys were Bumblebee and the dinobots.

    Ben, 2: Trawnsformah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now, keep in mind they said all this, AFTER I said I didn't like the toys at all, so not much influence from their dad...

    Heh we get the best of both worlds. Cybertronian Megatron resembles the movie version. Earth mode Megatron resembles G1. Even the colors. Gun Megatron FTW.

    Nope. Though a mostly black vehicle on a black background that was shown for a split second, not hard to see why people may have thought he was a gun. Only one version of Megatron was shown.

    Was it ever confirmed that he would be a gun for animated?

    I remember people saying that they were showed design sketches of his earth bot and alt modes, but I can't remember what they said he turned into. Though I do remember that they said that his head was more G1 than his pre-earth head.

    Well I'm a grumpy old man, and back in my day transformers had rubber tires and shiny chrome.
    Their altmodes looked like recognizable vehicles.

    That said... good articulation and style seem to be present in this line.

    I'll see what my 4 year old and 2 year old nephews have to say.
