    A five part pilot looks like it will start with a good movie sized storyline.

    More than I was expecting. "Darkness Rising" as a 5-part mini-series could be potentially epic. I was thinking they'd go with a 90 minute TV movie like Animated did, but this is more like 2 and a half hours, which altogether is comparable to the theatrical movies.

    Y'mean this?

    kind of a sloppy paste-up job. They mix the flat cell-shaded Soundwave and Starscream with the other glossier character renders. If you want to see what's really bad about it, look where the Decepticon's feet meet the ground.

    Looks like Bulkhead's wrecking balls got a whole lot more spikier.

    Someone better put these up on Youtube or Veoh or whatever, because many fans (including me) don't get this channel! :(

    Liking the poster, wish Hasbro would sell a large one. The 5-part episodes is a great start. Really looking forward to the TFP episodes. Thanks prime326 for the post.

    Less than a month to go! I'm totally pumped at the news of the first episode being a 5-parter. 3-part-or-more episodes have been shown to be spectacular as far as transformers is concerned.

    This is great news, and it's extra nice that it's airing at 3:30 like the old G1 cartoon and not at 6 in the morning like Animated....not like I am going to be home at that time to watch it either way, but it's still a nice touch.

    Looking like I'll be investing in a DVR unless they rerun episodes later in the evening.
