    I'm with the majority on this one...not a fan.
    If this is not representative of the show, why the hell would they put this out?

    Voice acting is a cheap knockoff of Cullen...
    Aesthetic is "grimdark" which isn't to my taste.

    The character designs do look sharp. I'm not ready to give up

    Prime sounds like the narrator from those "Honest Trailers" videos. Well.... Art style was nice.

    That's it? Thought we get 4 episodes today or only preview for Optimus Prime?

    I think it's hysterical that they had to have somebody go "nonononono I swear it's real animation."

    Oh, thank god this is just for the previews. Whew.

    I haven't been this excited for a new TF cartoon in years and years, and was gutted when I saw that. Back on the hype train.

    I didn't say that. I just want to know how they tell the story with Starscream. Because if Megatron is still a Con and on Cybertron how did Starscream end up on the Council of Worlds? I mean, if I remember it right Megatron was "down" and Starscream took the chance and then the people vote for him and in Combiner Wars Megatron isn't there, while Starscream and Windblade are working together. I just want to know how Mach. is "fixing" the logical errors.

    I think we need to chill down a bit. It's only one prelude right now, Combiner Wars hasn't started yet and people shouldn't judge the whole series in only 2 min of a preview.

    Btw: We have a schedule

    Prelude to Transformers: Combiner Wars – Optimus Prime: June 28
    Prelude to Transformers: Combiner Wars – Victorion: July 5
    Prelude to Transformers: Combiner Wars – Starscream: July 12
    Prelude to Transformers: Combiner Wars – Windblade: July 19
    Transformers: Combiner Wars series launch: August 2

    The art style is nice but the animation is barely more than a motion comic. Hurts to not have Cullen as Prime too even though this guy does a good job.
    You'd think Hasbro could afford to have something better than this produced?

    So why in the hell would they make a motion-comic preview like that?

    Like I think it speaks for itself that they had to go on Twitter to explain that the preview meant to give an example of the show is not actaully an example of the show.

    Nice callback to the '86 movie with Prime's gun glinting in the matchup against Megs.

    And Jon Bailey as Prime! Can't fault that at all, he's no Cullen obviously but I've heard him so much as Prime that it all sounds natural to me :) 

    Can't wait for more.

    Wow. Posting nothing would have been better than giving us a preview like this. I'm glad the motion comic style is for the trailer only, but if this is what you choose to generate hype for the rest of your series, I've lost a lot of faith in your ability to deliver something I want to watch. Praying I'm wrong

    I'm still confused as to the continuity of this series, too. Are we just saying it's a new one?

    I enjoyed the beginning of the video with Prime in his truck mode lamenting the state of things, but then it became too much of a 1986 tribute. I want to see what new things this series has to offer, not a rehash of previous fiction.

    To be fair, it's not like most of us are actually going to be able to watch it, anyway. I'm certainly not downloading Go90 just for this.
