    But seriously... I'm cautiously optimistic at this point. Knowing that the creators of Prime are onboard helps to ease my fears, but until I see the first episode I'm going to try and hold off on extensive hyperbole. Does look promising.

    I like the look of this. I just hope it avoids the negatives that Prime went through.

    From Transformers Facebook page.

    "The first official trailer for Transformers: Robots in Disguise is now online! Get your first look at the story and characters from 2015's brand new Transformers animated series. And keep your eyes peeled, because there's even more Robots in Disguise goodness headed your way this week!"


    Sounds to me like NYCC is going to be fun!

    I'm very lukewarm about this right now. Firstly, because I'm kind of disappointed we don't have any existing members of the previous incarnation, aside from Bumblebee. Where's Arcee, Smokescreen, and Wheeljack? I can see them being brought by Bee to Earth to help, since they were warriors.

    Bulkhead we saw was busy directing Vehicons in the rebuilding of Cybertron, and Ultra Magnus I can see is left commanding Cybertron, while Knock-Out is doing science-y stuff like restarting generators or something. Ratchet was also bouncing back and forth from Earth and Cybertron. The Predacons are, well I dunno, but I'd gather they prefer to remain away from the Autobots and Vehicons.

    Move to CN - This series will either be decent and be dropped after 13 episodes, or will suck ass catering to 5-8 year olds, and flourish for years.

    It seems Strongarm wants to be like a leader just like Bumblebee. So maybe she is going to be like a protege, perhaps? Going by what she saying to Bumblebee. And the mini-bot? Hmmm... not bad. The red bot (Sideswipe?) seems all right.

    I actually liked the trailer.

    Oh, I have no delusions that would happen. It just would have been a nice carry-over from Prime to have Knock Out working through being an Autobot (where, technically, he would be a rookie)… but I don't think this series is meant to have that kind of character development for good or ill.

    This might be decent, but then again I thought that about the creative team's last show...

    It's a new Transformers cartoon so of course I'm looking forward to it. That said, this is why I take issues with Hasbro; why is it we have Rescue Bots for kids and then this show also for kids? I get that RB is for a younger audience but do you really think the tone from this show will be much different. It's like having G1 for kids then another show for kids too.

    Anyway, I enjoyed Prime and it's probably my second favourite behind Armada. I'm glad the series gets a sequel.

    Looks good. But it's on CN. That means the show dies at the end of Season 1 at 5am or something.

    Young Justice. Green Lantern. Beware the Batman. The biggest question really is why Hasbro wants to do business with those people again. CNs track record is pretty much the worst. Why take the risk?

    I am really liking the designs in this show, except for grimlock because:
    - too friendly face on both beast and robot modes; they could use the more agressive face from the toy
    - the robot body is an exact copy of foc generations toy, or at least the arms are... we need some changes sometimes...

    plus, I have the bad feeling grimlock will not be the brute and challenging grimlock we all know and love

    I also do not like the animation on the humans and the planet earth environments... the cybertron ones look great throught

    I think that even with those "minus points" (for me, not for all), I am going to really like this show

    by the way, is it me or the werewolf con looks exactly like shockwave, but with two normal arms and a new head?
    fixit said there are hundrets of cons on the ship, but in the computer we only see about 6-7 shadows before it starts all over again... and in the first trailer we saw several cons that looked like the same... so we may have a rotf constructicon thing here...

    but they seem to be predacons, so we can think that they are all diferent exemplars from the same "species"...

    oh geez. those designs. so terrible. so, so terrible.

    i don't know what's worse, Sideswipeicorn, Grimbulkheadlockzilla or T-BobWheelie.

    (admittedly, Bumblebee's pretty nice.)

    And i have less than no interest in Hasbro's desire to make Bee a "leader character". You have such a rich history of Alternate leader characters that have gone fallow in the "it's all about Prime and Bee" era.

    Looks fine to me. Feels like a natural evolution of Prime and Animated.

    so hyped!!

    oh god not the repetitive prime transformation noise again. what, four times in this trailer alone?
    grimlock's robot face is painfully generic and his t rex arms are... wrong.
    what's with the decepticons all being animals? this feels like the movies all over in that department...
    strongarm is awesome. hope she gets a deluxe.
    hope bumblebee doesn't suffer from S4 rodimus syndrome where every episode he manages to mourn about how he's not optimus.

    I'll give it a shot, especially since Grimlock is in it
