    I thought it was just rumours last we heard of it, this seemed more like actual confirmation.

    cybertron's CG models were fine, but the animation outside of a few episodes was awful.

    CG means show-accurate toys. Usually.

    We knew that Orci and Kurtzman were going to work on a new TF series, but I certainly don't remember hearing about it being CG.

    If they can pull off something on par with Clone Wars then I could easily see this becoming the best looking transformers series ever.

    It should be better than Clone Wars.

    I hope the two can pull off a great series.

    I don't know how I feel about that. I remember BWs cgi was expensive to make character models. While the upside to that is more focus and character development for the main cast, I like to see lots of robots :) 

    I hope mainframe is doing the cgi! That would be cool.

    Anxious for more news about this

    Orci and Kurtzman can help make a good movie and entertaining story - as seen in the new Star Trek movie.

    The fact that the new series is being produced in the US is a good thing from the story PoV.

    CGI can be a dealbreaker in this day and age... but CGI has gotten a lot cheaper and easier to do since the days of BW (and there are a lot more CGI animators around). I will be absolutely thrilled if we get CGI that's on par with the WFC trailer.

    Overall, looking forward to more info.

    Okay, I can do with CGI...*Notices that Orci and Kurtzman are involved*

    *Insert rant here about why anyone or anything involved with the movie franchise shouldn't work with this new series*

    AANND here we have the beginning of the pre-release irrational ragging against the new show despite knowing nothing creatively about it other than the names of 4 people involved and a character.

    I myself am curious to see what they can do without Bay's interference.
