    Today, I was looking around the web and I realized that one of the popular things in Japan are robots such as Gundam. There are current Gundam series being made. There should be at least a new Transformers series being worked on now. Not like Animated which I strongly think its all recycled ideas. Hopefully, Japan/Takara will redeem themselves with the next one. Feel free to speak your opinions on this matter.

    each new gundam series is just a remake of the original space opera plot device. the only deviation was Gundam-G which hopped on the hype of fighter games at that time, but it won't be long until that idea is rehashed into a new G series.


    so transformers will most likely follow that cycle as well, rehashing the "transforming robots caught in civil war" concept again. it just varies in presentation and storytelling but basically we're caught in an infinite loop, because they (Hastaktomy) believe in the addage of: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.


    for something completely new, never been done before, would be really cool, but the chances of it happening are a bit hazy to determine.

    Personally, I hope the next series isn't produced in Japan.

    yeah we dont need any more shows from japan. None of them excelled in writing or animation when compared to the shows came from America/Canada.

    We were told at botcon that the next series will be on par with animated (or something to that degree)

    Personally, I would love a Japanese produced Transformers show if it had a consistent level of writing and animation. Shows like Code Geass and Eureka Seven can keep up excellent writing and animation for up to 50 episodes, so I don't think Japan is incapable of carrying the franchise. It just needs talented people and a good budget. Also, no involvement from Cartoon Network in the dubbing.

    As much as I love all the Japanese series' (Headmasters, Victory, Super God Masterforce & Galaxy Force) they honestly do seem a little inept at the writing side of things - with most taking a little too long to get going but even some American series' have similar flaws.

    As long as it has the Transformation noise & a Rodimus Prime in it I will be very happy :D

    We need a story that comes from a Decepticon perspective. =)

    Who likes the Autobots getting all the spotlight anyways?

    It's not that Japan is incapable of producing solid animation matched with great writing. That level of quality costs money though, and Hasbro/Takara always goes with the lowest bidder.

    I'm all in favor of a series like this. :D

    I would love to see something like a transformers evolutions style show. Alternate timeline with differing levels of technology.

    Cool ideas except we need a tad bit more autobots. And a little less decepticon destruction. But would be nice to have decepticons get featured and take over.Probly nevcer happen though.

    A show more in the line of GI Joe resolute would work.
    Give the decepticons more room to destroy and not make them bumbling idiots.

    Wow, that's a very good point. Anime like those what really creates joy. I mean elements from those specific anime are what is needed in the next Transformers series. Lets not forget the seiyuu that bring those characters to life. Though the Micron trilogy series originated from Japan, they were toned down to American standards or messed with the quality of the series.
    (ex: Micron Legend) Japan is a vital aspect to keep the Transformers name alive.

    I really hope the next series isn't Japanese. I realise some people really really like anime, but goddamn it sucks.
