    Looks pretty cool, especially for a WIP test sequence. The final product should be really nice.

    Edit: I really like the look of the characters. My current favorite one is Ratchet, even though we don't know what his alt-mode looks like (it's a safe bet it's an ambulance of some kind). Cliffjumer looks really nice too. Definitely chunkier than I had imagined. The horns in alt-mode are a nice touch. Arcee doesn't look bad either. The bike and spikiness to her are the only things movie-inspired. The blue makes me think of Chromia, but this definitely works for Arcee. Optimus is still a really good design (probably my second favorite), as is Bumblebee. The Decepticon troopers are an interesting surprise. It's nice to know that Megs, Screamer, and Soundwave won't be the only Decepticons. Megatron looks really nice, and he came out better than I was expecting (especially the movie-inspired alt-mode). The humans aren't too bad, but something about the little kid bothers me. Also, for some reason the name Jack Darby sounds familiar. Should be interesting to see what Bulkhead, Starscream, and Soundwave look like.

    Can't wait to see what the inevitable toys look like (yeah, like they're actually going to put this much effort into a new show and not make a toy line for it).

    ...Why would Megatron need drones for his Decepticons?

    Drones, bro. Storm troopers. If you have your strong lieutenants and you want to make sure that they live long, then you fill your army with cannon fodder, to trickle down the enemy enough so that when the lieutenants strike, they enemy has already been weakened by the fodder.

    Plus, it makes for killable bots on the show :D

    I thought that was some pretty impressive animation. Looking good.

    Seems like a win win situation with the movie designs for me. I'm not particularly fond of them so I'll save money since I probably won't go for the toys. But the TV show with Orci and Kurtzman at the helm and a particular focus and investment into the mythology makes me all sorts of happy.

    Cheap, loyal, expendable troops. Just what every evil overlord wishes for.

    So a few Decepticons are just walking around, minding their own business, and then Bumblebee assaults them?

    Eh, makes sense, I guess. Then again, Armada Megatron had Decepticlones in the Armada video game, so...yeah. Good excuse for killable robots.

    So basically:

    War for Cybertron continuity and a few design elements (Arcee) + Movieverse/Animated hybrid design + State of the art CGI + All star cast for voice and story = Transformers Prime.

    Hype meter filling to capacity.

    Hehehe, yup. He learned from Movie Prime to be a dick. Those two were probably talking about their families back home.
