    Maybe? I am wondering if they will have him transform if ONLY because of that Buzzworthy G1 Cybertronian toy coming out soon.

    As cool as it is to see G1 characters with BW characters, I'm kinda dreading it. How awesome would this be if they got the original BW cast in this? Even if the story sucked and the BW cast ran circles around most of the new cast it would have been worth it. Total lost opportunity.

    I have a theory about Ultra Magnus BTW. I'm kinda wondering if they will pull an IDW and have Nemesis Prime be purified somehow, maybe by the Matrix, he turns white and wears Ultra Magnus' armor and becomes a new Ultra Magnus. Seems like something they would do just to use the toy gimmick and UM's appearance in the trailer makes me wonder, like if Megatron kept UM's body to be a sort of imposter decoy or something.

    I cancelled Netflix knowing this series can only go down hill after season 2.

    If they couldn't shill Scorponok's gimmick, they're not going to do shit with Ultra Magnus's.

    Heh, the trailer only gets good once the beasts are introduced.

    I'm guessing that they hired the guy behind this masterpiece for the writing:

    Judging by the amount of obscuring dust in those frames, my money's on his "transformation" being segments of the two mode models swirled about in a massive obscuring dust cloud like a more high definition version of RT's Titans Return Trypticon parts being twizzled about in a cloud tranformations.
    If Netflix are co-funding this thing, I wouldn't be surprised if RT are just trousering a cut of the budget for themselves. The sole Quint redacting themselves down to a single face/voice artist almost immediately smacked of budgeting disguised as edgelord/grimdark/(failing at)"mature" writing.
    The same guy who decided to have a self-mutilating Quint, that teleportation effect is *expensive*, just like more voice actors/additional roles!

    I can only hope Primal completely kicks this version of Prime's ass. It would accomplish nothing because this iteration of Primal probably sucks just as much but it would at least be cathartic after all the stupid shit Optimus Prime has done in this trilogy thus far.

    Combine that with someone who genuinely thinks TFTM “raped my childhood” and you’ve got the writers who worked on this series. Unironically.

    This looks a little more action-packed.

    I also can\'t deny that I\'m intrigued by some of the stuff they showed in this trailer.

    Please let it be decent... or dare I say... good.

    They had that quintesson cut 4 of its faces of with an energon knife—I guess some people say “they’re just robots, chill” but I thought it was pretty gross and tasteless...

    The disconnect between the overly detailed and kibble-laden toy-based character models and the simpler, cleaner models made from scratch is awkward and distracting. Makes me wonder why they didn't bother to rework the g1 models to look less toy-like and more in line with models like Bumblebee or Elita-1 or the beasts. For some reason now is the time they decide to make the beasts based off previous media instead of the toys currently on shelves.

    Cool, this show has it's flaws, but I am excited to see how this mash up plays out.

    And even then Tigatron is a straight-up recolor of Cheetor's animation model when in the original show there were some clear distinctions-- Tigatron being bulkier with a completely different, more mature looking face, for instance.
