Has the new cast list of voices in the new Tf Cartoon changed anyone's opinion of it?

    No.

    Just having some good talented voice actors isn't enough to undo the horrid "artstyle," the lack of any story, or the ridiculous premise.

    I loved the promotional art, and I loved the cast list.

    So, no, not really :p

    If I were even neutral about the art this would be enough to get me excited. But I still despise the art, and I have no automatic confidence in the writing, given that the Teen Titans team is involved. That show was probably 3/4 ridiculousness and maybe 1/4 actual story, and what was there was mediocre.

    I shudder to think of what the comedy aspects will be like. They can't even draw off of what most of their stuff for Teen Titans was - veiled sexual tension and lots of eating. We'll probably be stuck with episodes that are 3/4 sight gags and, "LOL, ur human world is so silly!1!" Bleh.

    But this does give me some hope. Maybe everything else will be good except the art.

    God, I feel like the people who were mindlessly bashing the movie designs, but I just can't get behind these. People said those just weren't TFs. Well these aren't even robots, they're, as someone else put it, cosplayers.

    The TT team is writing it? Craaaaaaaaaaap:banghead:  I actually didn't care about the designs. I expected it considering the other junk CN puts out. I kinda like the voice cast. But the Teen Titans people? Dammit all.

    I thought initially that the show would be pretty good, but had my doubts about the toys. This is still the case, but I can't wait to see the cartoon now!

    Nope, the cartoons have never been my thing, so i still don't care about anything but whether or not the toys will be cool.

    I will be perfectly honest, no it does not change my opinion of the show. I do not think I will watch it because I do not like the style of animation. The Hasbro future panel did not change my view of it.

    I'll give it a chance. See where it goes. David Kaye seemed very pleased with it, and they have recorded two seasons already, IMO the cast is great, so, we'll see.

    I've been pretty excited about what they were trying to do from the beginning, but after this weekend's voice announcement, comments on the storyline and the description of the new toys, I think this will be the first line that I'll really love since Car Robots. The addition of so much from the BW part of the overall mythos also has me jazzed.

    The Teen Titans model really is a great way to go for this show. We get a small cast of characters to develop (ala Beast Wars) and we get a ton of guest appearances and reoccurring characters to fill out the show's universe. And if it's written as well as Titans (especially the last few seasons of that show), it will leave everyone demanding more, more, more. I can't tell you how wonderfully weird it is to see my cousin's six year old who is just batty for the Doom Patrol or Speedy or these other characters that so many modern comic fans dismiss. They've got new life in these new fans. That opens up the floor for IDW to explore this universe in comic form as well. My cousin's boy is just nuts for the Titans & Justice League Unlimited comics because of that.

    Define lack of story. Did you see the pilot already?

    It's already confirmed that'll rely on stand alone episodes BS, so there won't be any real story to it.

    'Sides, it's Cartoon Network. Their shows aren't exactly quality, just look at Ben 10 for example.

    I love how many people are blasting this for 'lack of story' (Without watching it yet), and yet, G1 was nothing BUT stand alone eps. How quickly people forget. If Teen Titans is anything to go by (And considering how much of the same crew it is, it probably is), while they did have many stand alone stories, each season had an overall plot. Even many of the stand alones were tied into it, you just didnt realise it until later.

    In any case, wow, that IS an impressive voice cast. Susan Blu? Wierd Al? Ok, I'm now officially interested in what shows up.

    a few extra note to throw in...

    - not only grimlock makes a cameo, but so do 2 other dinobots. my guess is swoop and slag.

    - Blackaracnias character evolves... i forget if its car - spider or spider - car. my guess is Arcee and BA end up being the same character. like the TM BA repaint.

    - Tom Kenney also voiced BM Nightscream, which didnt sound too Spongebob-esque

    - personal guess, i think Prowl is the Transtech Cheetor hybrid
