i just heard about the new cartoon, and i've heard it may follow g1. does anyone know this for a fact or is it just speculation at this point? personally i would LOVE a cartoon to follow g1, like beast wars did but with vehicle alt modes. like a series in between the two to fill in the space between g1 and bw. maybe a series with some characters from g1 with the same name and personality and updated alt modes, characters from beast wars with new modes, plus some characters who are totally new. maybe the first episode or two could bring people up to speed on the "early years" of transformers, kinda like finding out sentinel prime died and how op took over in wwi. also is it just me or would any of the rest of you like leaders not named optimus and megatron? i would settle for an autobot leader named "something prime" and maybe a decepticon leader we already know from g1. oh and starscreams ghost!
