Here is a wrap up of the key points from the live coverage!
Transformers Prime Wrap Up
Sounds like they are going for a very character oriented series - exploring who they are, where they are going, how they change
Full CG show!
a small group of Autobots are on Earth in case the Decepticons come back
Cast - Optimus Prime, Arcee, Bulkhead, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper
Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, not a boombox, more later
Show is named "Prime" because they are delving into what it means to be a Prime
Trying to make the Prime name stand for what it should, as the bearer of the Matrix and stuff
WELKER IS MEGATRON
Prime's design is a bit of a cross between movie and WFC
Megatron's design is a bit like his WFC version, not the Movie one
And a hint of the Animated Deluxe Megatron, the Cybertronian design

Meg's also has the buckethead
Megatron turns into a jet
Cybertronian vehicle, thinks Earth modes are beneath him
Prime, classic colors, much like WFC
26 eps per season, goal is 65+, may not air on 10/10/10 when hub launches.
Sue Blu voice director.
Continuity is non commital to one previous generation, but there is a bible at the offices that is 350 pages containing transformers lore they reference.
Recurring humans, but not the focus.
Prime, long nose truck
Starscream, very alien looking jet, but still true to classic form. Stylized.
Going to do battle damaged versions of CGI models, wont always be shiny and pretty.
Arcee is a single normal TF, no split like movie.
