    I think it's not because they want to re use all the show names, I doubt we'll get another series named "Armada". It just seems they want to drive the phrase "Robots in Disguise" into the ground. Just look how many things have that tagline now. The comics, the Prime toys, now this new cartoon, and so on.

    That would be great if he did. Though I've heard he's retired from voice acting and he usually only voiced in anime.

    Then again he really did love voicing Sky-Byte, anythings possible.

    Oh, I wasn't aware of that, thank you. Still, I would think my point still stands that Hasbro is trying to go back to cement "Robots in Disguise" as a very well known tagline to the brand. If they were calling this "Animated" I think we would have a problem.

    I love RID, and I love Sky-Byte.

    But his kind - the breed of incompetent but lovable villainous sidekicks like Trap Jaw, Muttley, Team Rocket, Harley Quinn - is near gone now. Bad guys aren't something to cheer or laugh at anymore, and any comedy/hamming on their part would take away from their aura of menace or dread. It would take real good writing to make a villain funny enough to be likeable eg Knock Out, he was arrogant and vain but you couldn't help laughing at his flamboyance.

    As regarding Sky-Byte, the shark-like Decepticon seems to be some sort of tribute to him. It's as good as we may get from this show.

    A smart move. But I'd rather they had rebranded the new cartoon instead. Alternately, I would not have been against them rebranding both the comic and the new cartoon.

    For real tho.

    Sky-Byte in any new cartoon would be great. As long as they don't rape his character.

    Jetstorm is funnier than that Cybershark repaint.

    There I said it.

    But seriously though, I rather have Scourge appearing if any characters from RID would show up on TF15. Unlike him, Scourge was actually a threat on a more kid friendly show. Given the Decepticon designs in TF15, maybe he could appear as a gas tanker truck and have a dragonish robot mode. Personally I rather have them as experimental Transformers from Shockwave and Scourge being a traditional one.

    Because "Transformers: More Butthurt for you fans out there" was too obvious.
