    Does anyone else appreciate that the opening theme song for Prime ISN'T another rendition of the old G1 theme?

    Man...when was the last TF series that had it's own, unique theme?

    The Unicron series, Beast Machines, Beast Wars, the Live action movies...

    But I see your point. Not too fond of it as the theme into myself (liked it better with no into personally), but it'll grow on me.

    I like the song, but I still think that intro is boring

    Agreed. Also the transformation sound being played throughout it gets kinda annoying.

    Yeah, only Megatron and Starscream?



    After the episode with the female Con, I hope they redo the intro with all the Decepticons.

    Before I can respond to this, I need to know what series you think had these renditions of the G1 theme so I know what exactly I am supposed to be comparing to?:confused:

    Well, Animated and Cybertron come to mind but...I guess there haven't been as many renditions as I thought:confused:

    The intro is really stoic, and it fits with Prime's serious business feel. I like it.

    I actually always kinda felt like that was a hallmark of the Transformers series, they usually do a pretty good job of not making intro music sound toooo much alike.

    I can see part of where you are coming from with those example. In part it spawns from another problem, the overuse of some catch phrases.. Especially more than meets the eye. There are also some similarities in the songs where they form the words transformers, robots in disguise, and more than meets the eye in the back beats, but I never felt they were toooooo recycled.

    The Prime intro music defiantly fits this series, and is pretty sweet.

    I was really pleased they moved away from the "TF..more than meets they eye" :dj  lyrics and love the CGI for this intro.. especially at the end...where Prime and Megs clash fists and cannons...Monday Night Football style :thumb

    I personally like the opening, which obviously means it sucks.

    The theme does nothing for me. It's ok. It's like a simplified movie theme.

    The transformation sounds that are played every time they transform in the intro is a bit annoying, and the theme isn't very exciting, but the images and clips are nice.

    I think the song fits, but the opening doesn't really fit the dynamic of the show (at least right now) I mean, it's got Megatron in it, but he's been in a coma every episode since it premiered. There is no Soundwave at all!

    Needless to say, there have been a few more characters introduced and they should render them in there somehow. It can't be THAT hard for a CG show to do, just keep it the same and re-render it with the new characters in there someplace.

    Hadn't thought about it in those terms, but now that makes the intro even more awesome :D  The fist-cannon bump is by far the best part of the intro.

    I quite like it. The Renegades theme is nice too (but I could do without the voiceover in that case).

    I love when it becomes all red and shows the small Decepticon team (as of the five parter, haha).

    Maybe I'm alone in this, but I think the theme is very boring and forgettable. I would have preferred something catchy and original, but honestly I think even a new rendition of the G1 theme would have been better.

    Uh, no. Armada, Energon, and Cybertron all had versions of the G1 theme.

    I, personally, enjoy it. I'm not (quite) creaming my pants every time that I watch it, but for a 45 second intro theme into a weekly cartoon series, it's pretty darn cool.

    Dramatic music (reminds me of both the live-action Bay films and Abram's Star Trek), new theme (not just playing something for G1's sake) and some very dynamic visuals. I really like the shot of Megatron slowly advancing and firing, while Starscream sprints up, leaps into the air, transforms, opens fire and then peels out of there. So cool. I wish he would do something like that in the actual episodes. :D  I wonder if we'll get a new or slightly altered opening for future seasons...
