    "initiative" doesnt exactly equal "series". could just be a way of conveying the concept for the new series. doesnt sound like a good series name.

    and I doubt orci and kurtzman will write the series. they probably just came up with the story outline.

    I dunno if that's going to be a new show, it could just be an advertising movement for their upcoming year of Transformers products and stories.

    However it is nice to hear they got some pretty decent talent working on shows for their new network. Currently I can't imagine what they could do with a full TV station other then fill it with old Discovery Channel shows or something, but if they're going to have that much new stuff it should be pretty damn great. Lets hope this new network will be able to compete with the other cartoon channels already kickin around.

    One part of me is positive Kurtzman & Orci are working on it (probably along with other writers)..because it gives them a chance to prove they are capable of writing Transformers without having to worry about Bay or others factors..on the other hand, their involvement and the name 'Hunt For The Decepticons'(LAME name by the way, immediately gives me the idea it's a filler series) kind of gives away it's a movieverse series.

    I'll await judgement until I see it. I've always said I'm not opposed to a movieverse series, but right now I don't really feel any excitement..

    edit: misread the article..I thought it was about a definitive tv series, but it just says 'initiative'...

    "Hunt for the Decepticons" is most likely a marketing thing for the NEST line, not a cartoon series.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Just a marketing ploy for the 2010 movie toys.

    It might be a subline that will follow "NEST Global Alliance"

    While it definitely sounds N.E.S.T. related, I don't think they were talking about the N.E.S.T. Global Alliance sub-line. While I currently don't think that "Hunt for the Decepticoins" (sounds more like a general description than a title), I do think it's something new. It'll be interesting to see what this show/toyline looks like, and how long it lasts. Probably won't be much more than a short filler line in between RotF and TF3, kinda like Classics was.

    Kind of ambivalent about the writers involved, but we'll see how it turns out. I'm guessing "Hunt for Decepticons" is either a general name for the direction of the franchise or, if it is the name of the show, it's just a semi-descriptive placeholder name, like how Animated started life as "Heroes".

    If there is going to be a cartoon based on the movie characters/designs, I will probably first know this the same way Obi-Wan knew that Alderaan had been destroyed.

    Cartoon based on the movie? Yay, just what we needed, more movie-verse toys.

    Actually it sounds like a great one. Especially if told through the Decepticons point of view. But I doubt it's anything more than a working title, like "Heroes."

    That's real nice of having two sublines for RoTF, Hasbro.
    So, what new cartoon are fans looking forward to?
