    We've picked 5 January 2018 to mark the anniversary of Transformers Animated? Why not the 10 year anniversary of the actual pilot airing? Mostly because Transformers Animated was Transformers in 2008 - 2007 was the year of the movies.

    We've prepped a retrospective of the original TFA (before the Jedi took the acronym) - enjoy!

    Happy 10th birthday, Transformers Animated! - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Whoa, 10 years. Doesn\'t feel like it.

    Of course, as I read this I am sanding a head sculpt for a new TFA custom so my view may be skewed a little, but still. 

    Feels like maybe 9, tops.

    This is still my number 1 favorite Transformers series. It was the first one I got to see as it aired, I still remember watching the pilot. And I'm still upset it was never continued.

    Animated was the last great series this franchise has had up to the current point. You could really tell the people behind it cared about the franchise and everything contained within. It flipped the script on everything this franchise holds - I.E. Optimus Prime is the leader of reject space janitors and has romanticized dreams of being a hero, instead of already being the best Autobot alive - and it was a wonderfully done story as a result.

    And then after the show got canned prematurely, the AllSpark Almanacs were put out and gave us the missing content anyway. No other show has done that before or since.

    EDIT: Now that I remember, my relationship with the show actually is a bit of a story in of itself. Originally, I thought it looked absolutely horrid, not really sure what to make of it. Then Botcon 2008 happened - a local radio station was hosting a small raffle for one of three Animated figures (Lockdown, Cyb. mode Prime, Bumblebee) and against all expectations, I actually won Lockdown. This would prove fortunate for me as once I got the figure from the radio station's HQ (that in of itself is a crazy story because it was in part of the city I've never visited before or since), but Lockdown is one of Animated's best figures which is saying something considering he was a Wave One release ultimately. He was so superb a toy that I decided to give Animated a chance. And to this day I am glad I did.

    This show could urgently use a phase 2 series in continuation of it\'s season 3 finale. Hasbro needs to shut up about this \"cyberverse\" crap and focus on that instead, there\'s so much potentials with countless ideas left unexplored.

    Such a great series. I didn’t initially like it, but it grew on me over time, and I’m still amazed how well the figures came out from a more stylized art style.

    A couple of days ago I got my animated collection re-shelved after a recent move and in doing so I just kept getting reminded how well it was of a series and toy line. Also how there wasn’t a gimmick in the line either. And how much the brand has changed(and not particularly for the good) and it was a sign to me as a sort of twilight of the brand as a whole.

    IDW, if you wanted to get back in with some of your audiences good graces you’ll do a defacto season four of Animated.

    You should really fact check these before posting them. There’s no way that Animated can be any older than, like, three years. I refuse to believe that it’s been 10 years. Refuse!

    I remember watching this when it was new, I watched the entire 3rd season as it aired.

    The show really didn’t get handled the way it deserved. And the impact it left has been obvious.

    The only show that came almost close to it was Transformers Prime, keyword almost.

    Great show marred by an average-at-best toyline for its time, but miniature masterpieces by today's standards. IMHO: no other piece of Transformers fiction since Animated came close to its level of quality.
