    No one has talked about this logo. What's it for. Its very similar to the RID logo and has a very cartoon logo feel to it (if that makes sense). We recently had a comic series called MTMTE but as the series' catchphrases MTMTE and RID are likely to be titles for many things. Do you guys think RID will get a sequel Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye?

    Would be a cool IDW comic nod.

    It's just a tag slogan, nothing special... right?

    It's part of the brand at this point. "More than meets the eye" is basically like the five note McDonalds jingle, or "You're in good hands" for Allstate insurance.

    I sure hope not. I really like Prime and some parts of RiD, but I want to see a new series that's not part of the Aligned continuity.

    We didn't hear anything about such a thing though. We may hear something during the panel but don't keep your hopes up. Even if it's a series, it my not be a sequel to RID. Everything to do with the aligned continuity is dead now. RID is the only thing that is still standing.

    That is finished. The series is over already so it's not standing, there will be no new episodes

    Actually, there will be a sequel to Rescue Bots called Rescue Bots Academy, so the property is still in play. However, the exact format is not yet known.

    Weren't there rumors that the next cartoon series would be more like the live action Bay movies?

    However, the latest Bayverse movie flopped so perhaps that's not the case anymore.

    Personally I don't think that banner / sign is related to a cartoon at all. "More than meets the eye" is the catchphrase for the brand--the very first line in the classic TF theme song is "Transformers, more than meets the eye." I don't think the banner means anything other than "Hey lookie here, Transformers stuff!"

    No they didn't flop, were they critically acclaimed? No but to flop is to not make money. And both AOE and TLK have made boatloads of money

    Whatever this is the title of, can we PLEASE move on from using generic titles and phrases like "MTMTE", "RID", and "Prime"? Good lord. Come up with something original.

    AOE did make lots. TLK, however, severely underperformed and if it was profitable, just barely made a profit. Not a success by any means.

    The designs from that kids book with the figures had to have come from somewhere. And Hasbro seem to be strainging themselves with keeping the quality of the show toyline. Generations gets an awful lot of love for the secondary toyline, y'know? And with the movies looking like they're going under it would make sense for them to make a show that's got an IDW-G1 flavour, that way the generation toys get a tv show, and they can match the same level of quality. And maybe save money I dunno.

    It underperformed compared to AOE but it did not severely underperform. It's made $519 million against a budget of around $260 million. It's the 9th highest grossing movie of the year

    I'm not going to bother debating with you, the facts are clear it underperformed like hell, it was a failure, etc.

    Relevant to this thread, I don't think it's implausible that we could get a more Bay-esque animated series regardless of the failure of TLK. Maybe they'll think that having an animated series will prop up interest in the films again?

    My thoughts exactly. This new show may do what TFA was designed to do: quickly distance and diversify the brand from an underperforming movie.

    Factoring in advertising costs, that's barely breaking even.

    I thought Animated was created to take advantage of renewed interest in the brand that they hoped the live-action movies would generate and was casually discarded when the movies became bigger than Hasbro originally imagined.
