    Ugh, TV.com is nearly as bad as IMDB for user submitted content.


    I'm also fully expecting a reprise of the "HE TELL ME" thing when someone questions Peter Cullen and the plot, since Optimus and the backstory are two things that have already been revealed, more or less.

    A quick search of the news forum gives me these links. Wish I'd thought of this sooner:

    Spongescream Starpants
    Tara Strong to voice "Sari", the human tagalong
    David Kaye is Optimus Prime, HE TELL THEM!
    Small snippet from Botcon, Scott McNeil confirms that several BW voice actors will be doing "a new show"
    Rumoured Cast


    Please bear in mind those are some extremely old topics so you shouldn't post in them. I've linked them here for reference only.

    Only TWO Decepticons up so far, I just can't believe we haven't heard more on the baddies. Here's hoping we get Soundwave in something cool, his appearance in Cybertron was crap. I like the list of the Autobots, finally characters we know, instead of some jackasses like Hot Shot. SO HAPPY to have Bumblebee back, haven't seen him, since, well... Now that I think of it, he hasn't been around since Generation 1, television-wise of course.

    I'm of course remarking to what Sol posted, not that shit from TV.com, there's crap all over that.

    I'd quite like to see a few new faces on both sides as well. It's all good to cultivate a few of the classic personas, but it would be nice to get some new blood in there as well.

    I'd imagine we'll see more guys for both sides, when was the last time you saw a TF show start at two villains and not add a few more as the series progressed? I just hope the Decepticons get a decent showing, they've been far too much comic relief in the newer shows, with only one or two exceptions each outing.

    Why all the hate?

    The next Transformers cartoon seems to have an insane amount of talent attached to it. I am actually trying not to get too excited about it.

    I reserve judgement until I see the actual episodes or character designs

    I am trying, too.
    But, I actually heard more of what I consider good news about Transformers Heroes than I thought possible.

    Still, I realize that it could end up being fecal matter.
    I just doubt that it will.

    Well, the character designer is said to have also worked on Legion of Superheroes and Teen titans, so I imagine the humans being a bit like that. The bots themselves, we'll have to wait and see if Hasbro keeps up their reinvention streak after the movie.

    As far as designs go, it was confirmed not too long ago Prime would be a fire truck.

    Instead of Minicons, I'd love to see the Real Gear guys in the series.

    :lol

    I'd sooner see honest-to-Primus Micromasters - with Skystalker and Countdown leading the charge for each side!

    (Ok, so perhaps their over-eager seconds would do the charging in...)

    I pass no judgement until it loses my 5 seconds of crap attention span (Never made it past 5 seconds of armada)

    Eeewww...Minicons. This had better be good. Those children in the Unicron trilogy gave me a headache. At least it will be more accessible over here. Most of my friends don't like TF because of the trilogy. It was hard for me to hold on too.

    Man, I hope since Prowl is in the show, some other G1 names are in (Ironhide, Ratchet, Brawn, Sideswipe, Grimlock, Wheeljack, etc.) and Prowl's design harks back to G1 (maybe some unsused Classics designs, hint, hint Hasbro)

    Just to point out. Those some what noticed Classics figures totally fit the mould for toys t hat would be designed mike the DC Animated series styles. Look at Mirage he totally looks liek he can be drawn into the DC-verse.

    And animation is not the be all and end all. I believe have American themes in a TF cartoon again after too many years will be a great thing.

    I believe the show will depend upong the target audience, will they go for kids 6-10 or 4-8. The target audience will decide how good this show it.

    Thanx

    More like the quality of writing will determine how good the series is. A series targeted at 10 year olds by bad writers will always be worse than one targeted at five year olds with decent writers.

    As long as there is a decent writer who can write some decent stories and not overcomplicate / string out a storyline, I'll be happy. I wouldn't even mind if the series was mostly self-contained and just had a couple of plot episodes every three or four episodes, the rest being focused on developing the cast and generally giving us some decent TF action.

    That'd be kinda scary. The only thing I didn't like about Ender was he's never wrong.
