    Well, as time passes, more and more info will be leaked from the new TF show, TF: Prime. We're still in the wild speculation stage, but we know that it will be CGI, Cullen will be Prime, and a shot of BB that may or may not actually even be from the show.

    So, what do YOU want to see from the new show? It's being apparently treated as a very long running show, not as a brief sideshow continuity, so the potential for some long running stories and real character development are really there.

    Me, you say? For me, it's not that long a list.

    I want assertive hero Prime, not young-and-unsure Prime.

    I want quality storytelling on the level of Animated. I want the material to be treated with respect, and get a good quality series on the level of the past high water marks of animation storytelling quality, like Batman/Justice League, Full Metal Alchemist, certain Robotechs, etc. Focus on character and personality.

    I'd like to see basically the team taking a look at all prior continuities, take the absolute coolest parts of them all, and blend them into a new, serious show that is treated like the new "official" continuity for the foreseeable future. Retell stories if you can update them and make them really cool.

    Humans? Fine. I want the story to focus on Earth. (at least at first) But let's actually bring in the humans and make it serious and reasonable. There's all KINDS of anime and cartoons where there's cool humans, so why can't this take place in the TF universe?

    Sigh...I guess that's it for now....

    I'll probably never get to see the show due to not having tv, so as long as the toys are cool I'm good.

    I want a franchise that's at least as good as Animated.

    I want good stories, not too childish style and especially no movie style.

    Character. Not just for the good guys but I want the bad guys to have plenty of character as well.

    More characters would also be nice. Not every week mind you, but so many of the shows have felt rather claustrophobic with such a small cast of heroes and villains. I'd like something that gives a feeling of the Transformers Universe being huge again.

    I definitely want good storytelling and characterization on the same level as what we saw in Animated. I definitely hope that this will be a long-running series, at least last for more than 3 seasons before being canceled for whatever reason.

    I definitely want to see characters that are true, if not then at least similar, to what they were like back in G1... at least the ones who have appeared in G1.

    Naturally, I agree with everyone else regarding having cool toys made.

    ^^ This. I want a solid season long plot. I would like the Decepticons to win sometimes, makibng Autobot victories feel authentic and not comic. Show the Decepticons as an organized fighting force.

    Also, I'd really like the Starscream/Megatron split to split the Decepticons... You could have the Decepticons and the Destrons. Would be an interesting mechanic that was touched on in Cybertron.

    I want a show where the fan's won't create threads, mourning it for 5 years after it's off the air.

    Seeing a lot of Animated references. Animated did the Transformers themselves brilliantly but I don't want anything like Professoe princess ever again!

    Personally, I'd love it to be done by the guys who did the Armada game on the PS2 game years ago. Fantastic cut scenes with cinematic music. The Decepticons were presented as real threats. Anyone who can make Armada cool has to be good. Who can forget Tidal Wave?

    Actually what we don't get in cartoons anymore is cool background music like the old G1, Turtles and Thundercats cartoons.

    I want Dreamwave style characterisation. Those MTMTE profiles were great and they made Sunstreaker a badass and Prowl was not a whiner.

    Basically, I want good characterisation and writing. AND i miss the old days of G1 where you had a large but interesting cast. These teams of 5 or 6 on each side are boring. I want to see a Seeker army descend upon Iacon.

    I desire Hitlertron and darkness comparable to Beast Machines.
