    I keep seeing mention of it.. I've only recently been getting back into reading the boards, so can't play massive catchup.

    Can someone(s) post either where to find info, or a blip (or 2) about what this is? Toy or cartoon (or both, knowing Hasbro)?

    Heroes is apparently the next Transformers cartoon/toyline, set to debut sometime after the movie. Apparently its set in a future where robots are commonplace on Earth as a servant underclass. Apparently.

    Two actors are confirmed to have been cast in the series: David Kaye as Optimus Prime; and Tara Strong as Sari, a human character.

    According to Frank Welker, Corey Burton may have been cast as Megatron.

    they described the earth setting as "I, Robot-esque" and that Optimus Prime in this would be younger, possibly not the leader (that's an assumption on my part).

    there was a list of characters that included the names Prowl, Bumblebee and Ultra Magnus... i'll see if i can ifnd the original post for you...

    I contacted Corey about this a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately, at this time he can neither confirm nor deny that he has even been cast in the series in any capacity.

    That's why I said 'may', since Frank wasn't sure himself and its not an announcement from Corey's agent or anything.

    Me, I'm very interested in hearing David Kaye play Prime. So it was a good idea for him to relocate to LA last year!

    I'm dying to know more about this show, mainly because this is Hasbro recognizing the interest in Transformers and creating something here in the States again, not just porting an anime. I liked Cybertron a lot, but I'm hoping this will be something more akin to Beast Wars.

    I'm hoping for something new and different. The new setting puts Transformers into a different "ideology", so the writers could take that and run with it, to come up with something that would be to what came before as Batman Beyond is to Batman. Undeniably close to its roots, yet at the same time with an attitude and direction all of its own.

    Whatever 'Heroes' ends up being, I'm sure some of us will love it, some of us will hate it, and we'll have pretentious never-ending pointless discussions to determine who's wrong or wrong.

    I hope that premise for this show stated on page 1 of this thread is drastically changed. Yikes.

    Here's the very basic direction I'd really like this series to take.

    Part1: Autobots are in hiding, trying not to be discovered. At the same time, are trying to discover Megatron's plans.
    Part2: Autobots are found out, and are being actively hunted down as rogue robots. (good excuse to give them new alt modes) Megatron's "secret" is discovered by the Autobots. Autobots reveal their true identities to the military group chasing them, so they can warn them of the Decepticons.
    Part3: The Autobots eventually join forces with the human military group to fight the Decepticons. (an excuse to give the autobots "battle" alt modes)

    I personally would be very happy if the series took this general route.

    Your rebuttal is towered over by my flawless elaborate logic. The mere concept of there being many TRUE Tranformers fans is quite incongruous, as I AM THE TRUE TRANSFORMER FAN!




    :) lolol, good one!)
