    Meet The Hub's 'Transformer' hunks - USATODAY.com

    Includes a SWEET ASS render of Prime's face! In special I looove this part:

    Megatron

    (voiced by Frank Welker)

    The villainous Megatron, who seeks to conquer Earth, has acquired a rare element that allows him mastery over life itself. Kurtzman says Megatron "in many ways is a fallen hero. He is Lucifer. He is the one who used to be the angel. There is something compelling and also really tragic about that character." He sees Optimus and Megatron as "different sides of the same coin. That duality and that friction is what I think has made for a great relationship."

    Yeah, that picture of Prime is awesome, and so is Megs' bio. Really can't wait for this show.

    Prime looks really badass in that picture. Loving the movie inspired faceplate.

    Optimus looks fucking AMAZING, and that Megatron description sounds great.

    I'm really excited for this show. COME ON BLACK FRIDAY

    That is pretty cool. Sounds like Megatron is going to be one of those cool complex Megatrons. Could be a bit like Beast Wars where you will sometimes have to question if the heroes are really that right and if the villains are really that wrong.

    I wonder if they'll make a The Fallen/ Megatron connection.

    Prime's bio does mention the Prime dinasty and the new fiction material shows Megatron as idolizing the figure of Megatronus Prime.

    That is VERY cool stuff there. The Prime render, the descriptions. Megatron seems like he's going to be a lot more complex in nature.

    Reading Megatron's profile it sounds liek he will contain a great deal of substance. This is a good thing because a hero show is only as good as its villian.

    That Prime render is awesome. None of the animation we have seen contains that much detail. But, I am compelled to believe the new Prime pic is what the final animation will look like.

    I think I am finally getting excited for this show.

    The bios are great and that render of Prime's face is really cool. Here's hoping that we see Prime with his faceplate more than without it.

    i love how cliffjumper is actually getting some love here. i really really really hope that he now can be established as a unique character all his own without always being the red repaint of bumblebee. and now this time with the rock voicing him, please let this happen! i smell what the cliffjumper is cooking!

    This can't come fast enough! I just hope there are a lot of battle scenes, so we get the least amount of Prime without his battle mask.

    With and without the faceplate, TFP Optimus Prime is probably my favorite Optimus Prime as far as Earth mode design goes. I really don't understand the hate on his look without the faceplate. Sure, it's simple, but simple can be good.

    Really digging Megatron's background too. Original voice actors + kickass revamped versions of iconic Transformer characters = recipe for total awesome. I've never been this excited about a new TF show since Beast Wars.

    I can't lie, I really want a Cliffjumper toy. I've said it before, I'll say it again, I'm glad they're really pushing Cliffjumper with this series instead of Bumblebee, it's very refreshing.

    Stupid sexy Optimus Prime face. After reading the bio of Megatron I can't help but feel as if Hasbro meant it when they said this was going to be the same continuity as WFC, as it sounded like the bio was referring to dark energon.

    Megatron's bio actually might set up some "character" for the drones - I feel the Eradicon drones are going to be a nice big homage to the Vehicons from Beast Machines. Heck, even their heads look like the have the "bucket helmet", giving them a "made in Megatron's own image" motif. :)
