    When Transformers: Prime ends and after the fourth film, they'll presumably start working on the next show.

    How many of you guys want the High Moon style as the in-show style?

    I'd rather have it be 2D Hand drawn animation in a style like Young Justice or Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

    Prime's 3D CGI animation feels like it's very restrictive on detail and characters so I'd stick with hand drawn animation especially since it's a dying art.

    As in, it looks like it was ripped straight out of the games? I don't think I would have too many objections to a series done like that.

    Yes I would but I'd also like the same treatment of the 2004 PS2 Armada game. That was epic.

    What I was going to say. I want to see a traditionally animated TF show again. I'm tired of the "BUT MODELS AND STUFF IN THE BACKGROUND ARE TOO EXPENSIVE TO MAKE!" excuse.

    Ripped out and using the Unreal 3 engine; Mass Effect also uses it and provided they worked with High Moon, they could easily have things set up faster than Prime was.

    Agreed. Shame the game was a one-off. Wonder if Hasbro would give a PSN rerelease of it?

    I'd go for it. :)  While I'm not into the style much it'll be a great way to reintroduce the more G1 aspect in the designs but more modernized. Almost like how IDW is doing it's designs for it's character nowadays.

    As for animation techniques like 2D or CGI I really don't mind which one they use just as long as the story and characters are done well. I like both equally.

    I don't know if a show encouraging obesity is what's best for kids nowadays.

    No. I think it's good for a video game, but the way everyone - even Starscream and BUMBLEBEE - are muscled-up Gears of War knock-offs rubs me the wrong way.

    I'd much rather have hand-drawn again, with an influence of old school anime such as Go Nagai for the 'bots and classic Tatsunoko or Osamu Tezuka for the humans. I LOVE retro 70's anime art styles, and Animated came close, but I'd like to see that done again.

    While I do enjoy the look of High Moon, 2D Animation might be for the better as if allows for more characters to be present outside of the main cast

    I will give you that the designs can be bulky.

    But not as bulky as Pat Lee's unless the character is meant to look Bulky. Bruticus and Prime come to mind as bulky whereas Jazz and Shockwave don't.

    I love the style, but not for a show with kids in mind. I think it would be great in a straight to video release aimed at a teen and up audience. Like the DC and Marvel animated movies.
