    No. I'd rather have a new series featuring Binaltech, Universe or War Within designs.

    That sounds kinda.... I don't know. Besides Universe is just G1 improved, in fact the characters look more accurately like the G1s than the original toys. War Within was a comic series and those were very simple Cybertonian forms, all you had to do was stand them up basically, there was a series with alot of cybertronian forms it was called "Cybertron". And binaltech would either be like porno, or just another series with nothing new but alternate modes, plus thats also by Takara so I think it would be Japan only. So, I seriously don't see there being a chance of that happening.... ever.

    I would want to see a live action show, with the same characters and designs sometimes but also I'm very doubtful it would happen either.

    I think we have a good two to three more seasons of animated before we get to any other series but I hope they keep with this direction though cause its a good one.

    I didn't want to see those designs on the big screen, I certainly wouldn't want to see a TV show with them.

    it would be too expensive to animate in a tv show, therefore would never be made

    Removing the Animated style out of Animated would make it so... not Animated!

    However I'd love to see toys of TFA characters in different styles.

    I think it would not be too hard to simplify the movie designs in an animated series. Sure they wouldn't be as nice as the movie designs but you could still get some better character out of them. I would love to see Baricade voiced by his in game counterpart for an animated series.

    No, the movie style no matter how it's done in the movie, comic books, or toys just doesn't appeal to me on any level so I'd rather that look just stayed with the movie series.

    I like the Animated style, but yea I could seem them going with some different style when Animated ends and they go with some new series. With any luck it will also be a style that I like.

    I like the TF movie style because it's pretty accurate to how they would transform. Also, they have targeting computers, hydrolics, hacking capabilities, upgrades, and they can carry a living virus for computers (kick ass!). So I would like to see that, just as long as they stop making their faces human-like and tall their bodies humanoid, oh and I'd like to see one without a head having optic cameras in different places and speakers somewhere other than a mouth.

    While I would like a series based off the movie style, I really don't want Animated to end. Though the movie style in anything other than live-action would not look as cool as it does now.

    Seconded. Preferrably as the followup to BM as was originally intended instead of a new continuity.

    It was impossible to make those designs function properly on the big screen, with millions of dollars and dozens of professional digital effects artists. They're total visual failures in the comic adaptations. You couldn't even really get very good toys from them. What makes you think they'd be good for a cartoon television program? Leave them right where they are, I say.

    Yes. I would. I think it would be effin great. All this hype about Transtech is confusing as well. The designs I saw from Transtech were, to me, alot like the movie designs. The weird heads, funky designs... only difference was that the vehicles were decidely Cybetronian forms.

    Although, in all honesty, I want Hasbro to kick out the dough neccessary to get Bruce Timm and his squad to do a Transformers series. Whatever he wants to do would be awesome. I have no doubt it would wind up as the best TF series EVAH! :D

    Yea, maybe simplified lower resolution models of the movie-bots to make a prequel series in CGI, like the Clone Wars. If they stick to traditional animation though, I hope they start putting in a reasonable budget because the animation in TF:A is shit.

    The cut-scenes in the movie game were pretty decent. If there was an animated show I'd prefer it to be CG like that. As for traditional hand-drawn versions I think it would be too complicated to keep that level of detail and the designs would have to be so simplified you'd end up with too great a departure from the movie look for it to be worth it when intending a show with a Bay-style look.

    Gimme something between G1 and the movie and I'd probably be okay. Although TF:A is fine sometimes the exaggerated look just isn't as satisfying to me.
