    Oh look, the Universe toys! Man, Powerglide's head is HUGE. Digging all of them though, especially in grey.

    Wait... dated the 23rd? Did I miss the news?

    Oh. Well then, that video is pretty fantastic. Makes me think a G1-style wide release movie wouldn't work, but I think it could work as a direct-to-DVD kind of thing if they wanted to make one.

    That video was amazing! For a second, I thought they were just using footage from the PS2 G1 game from Japan (there was a TF:TM-like confrontation between Prime and Megatron in the trailer for that game), but this was way better :)  I hope they make it available as a download or on a DVD at some point.

    Is there any way to find out who produced this, and if we can expect more?

    If you go to the webisodes index, you can watch the video in slightly higher-res. It's listed as Transformers Universe "Part 1," BTW.

    I'm gonna die of overload soon. First the toy pics and now that CGI webisode. That was cool.

    Take that Michael Bay! A fight scene in which you can tell what is happening! Oh, and they look real too? Score!

    Why couldn't the movie have looked like that?

    The fact that some movie fanboy is already thinking OH BUT IT DOESN'T LOOK REALISTIC just shows how nutty some people are, of course it doesn't, it's cheap CGI not Hollywood razzle dazzle. But the basic style is more realistic and a lot cooler. Nice powerful, solid robots.

    I warmed up to the movie designs, but now, I'm really starting to think they were pretty awful, especially after seeing that. We've just seen 3D Transformers done better. Success is irrelevant - come on, it was made to be a blockbuster. It doesn't mean the designs shouldn't have looked closer to this.

    Holy fuck I wished the TF sequel had this kind of aesthetic :(  What movie fans don't get is that because Bay and the designers are making TF "This" way, those of us who prefer proper, realistic, japanese style mecha will not get our movie in the foreseeable future.
