Alright so with the flood of Transformers Animated news in today, especially with that clip, I got thinking whether or not I liked the fact that most of the cast carried the G1 name and a somewhat close look to their originals. And I just wanted to see what the fandom's thoughts were on this. Cause while I agree its great to get homages to older characters, Animated in my honest opinion will rally a whole new generation of kids and they'll love the characters that are featured in the show and I hope there will be a whole cast of newly designed characters with properly developed stories to rally fans (e.g Lockdown). From what we've seen already, with the whole Lockdown toy review and pics, lotsa support is already coming out for the character. My thoughts are for the support of such a bad ass character, and I'm beginning to think that we should see more new and original characters opposed to the old ones that were introduced in 1984 and perhaps during the Beast Wars. So what I'm asking is, preference for new characters or bring the old ones back and why?
