FUCK YEAH.

I'm more interested to see the return of Duel Masters to be honest.
Chris McFeely
Wait wait wait wait WAIT, they're bringing back DUEL MASTERS? Oh, MERCY! And they're going to produce a new American-made show, not dub an anime? An AMERICAN-MADE card-game-based show? Oh, shit, this will be SO TERRIBLE I will have to watch it.

Duel Masters? I remember seeing that show when I was in like..grade 5.
Chris McFeely
WAIT A FURTHER MINUTE, I just went to google it a bit, and they still MAKE that show in Japan? Jeez, the things you learn!

Also, hurray, more Transformers and the like. Totally. But really, Duel Masters? REALLY? I can't believe an American-made show will actually involve characters PLAYING the card game, it'll have to be something that adapts the IDEA of the game into a story. Surely.

Transformers, yeah.

That's great news! Although I'm not a fan of Rescue Tots, Prime definitely gets my vote.

Hooray!

The real news here is moar ponies. Prime was a shoe in for another season since it's part of Hasbro's master plan afterall.
Ra88
Awesome! Shame that Renegades is still not returning though.
Fort Max
Care bears and littlest pet shop but still no glorious return for M.A.S.K.
Reaper Cloud
Very cool about Prime. I would hate to get into the Prime cartoon/toys just for it to be canceled. lol

We saw a preview of it at Toy Fair, and it's not as bad as you'd think. It didn't give us any idea of the plot, but it certainly looked nice.

As for the Japanese version, it aired after Animated on Saturday mornings, so I checked it out for a lark as I got a kick out of the dub helmed by Kevin Rubio, and it turns out they switched to cel-shaded CGI back in 2007, which does a pretty good job of imitating tradition anime, as long as the characters don't move too much, heh.

It's nice to know that prime will be around for at least another year. That should mean that they'll be able to finish the three-season story they've had planned. If after that they decide to move on to something else, I won't be bothered. If anything it might give me the chance to build my RID collection some more, and maybe even start up an OS Thundercats collection (I could use a bit of a break from Transformers, tbh).

As for Rescue Bots, good for those that follow that show, but honestly, I couldn't care less.

Care Bears making a return is interesting. I might actually check-out an episode or two of it, but it's definitely not something I'll be following. For a time my sisters were into them, so a little of that rubbed off on me (it was actually one of the few girly things they were into, lol).

That's cool. More love for the '80s toons.

Sounds great.

Oh boy I've said it once I've said it twice "they're all gonna die"... lol.
bobbyjack
My son is 4 and really likes the Rescue Bots show. But after playing with Cyberverse and mainline Transformers since last summer, he is not interested in the Rescue Bots Toys at all. I hope they release some more advanced Rescue Bots figures soon.
TFW10

Yeah, the anime was just horrid. Bad dubbing, and everyone breaking the fourth wall at least every five minutes.
Pravus Prime
Hooray more Rescue Bots!

Prime was renewed too? Oh. Good for them. I guess.
shroobmaster
Pony, Rescue Bots and Prime renewing makes me happy three times.

Man, the dub was the best thing about that show. It rescued it from being a Yu-Gi-Oh clone that never even bothered to explain how you play the game.
Robogeek28
More Prime= great news.
Griffin73
I like both. I would like to see more of Cybertron and more G1 characters introduced and their backgrounds explored like Clone Wars has done. Bring on the Sideswipe and Sunstreaker, Jetfire, Insecticons and Constructicons. Maybe even develop some other characters, like Hardhead, Doubledealer, The Predecons or Sixshot.

More Cybertron...More, more, more!

Crazy, the channel that Hasbro owns renewed the shows that Hasbro owns based on the toys that Hasbro owns? Totally didn't see that coming!

Sarcasm aside, it's cool that TFP is already confirmed for Season 3. I think. Guess we'll see how Season 2 goes.
daitarn red
i wait see head masters and target masters and power masters and pretanders in tf prime s3
O.Supreme
Well, if the show makers can keep to a 26 episode/season schedule this will being the episode count to 78 (and solidify it as the 2nd longest running TF series). My fear is that season 3 will be a "short" season of 13 episodes, I see this trend more an more often unfortunately.
General Magnus
More ponies and Prime? Fuck yeah.
tfprime32
Yeahhhhhhh!!!! And I hope they have a completd season/ss4dvd set
Lock Cade
Yay, Prime will get a third season!
dj_convoy II
Assuming the Hub itself is renewed.
Chromia217
Yayyyyyyyyyyy!
Moonlight1102
So basically Season 2 of Prime will only last over a span of several months. Does this mean we get no breaks?
TransRanger
Does this mean we have a chance at getting a Transformers Prime Hot Rod that maaaaybe homages the IDW one?

They seem close to similar aesthetics.

And what about Star Saber? Even if it's like Optimus "Star Saber" Prime?
Rexidus
Oh man, this is great news for Prime. This makes it one of the longest running series I think. I hope this series becomes the longest running series.
