    They took artistic license, that’s what happened.

    Good Lord! What happened to dear Ironhide? I’m getting the feeling that someone at Sunbow doesn’t have a solid grip on translating torsos. Something’s very wrong here!

    "Artistic license" just seems like a way to excuse how they fudged up the rendering of the toy. Usually creators will take liberties to make something look better, not worse.

    To all those fans who loved season 1, I hope they continue to enjoy the bare minimum Hasbro can cobble up just so they can go "hey, I know that guy" and then clap.

    How dare you imply this is a poorly made show and that instead of just accepting mediocrity we could hold Hasbro and the creators working with them to higher standards.

    Inb4 "ItS nOt OuT YeT!" I'm aware, I'm saying it's probably gonna be more of the same shit that Siege was, I have no reason to believe Earthrise or Kingdom will somehow be better.

    The right image was done by Don Figueroa. He tends to improves on TF to the nth degree with 100% awesomeness.

    The best part about being a filthy casual is that I'm able to enjoy what has been produced so far. I'm an easy audience. Would it be nice to see something high budget and well written, sure. I'm not sure that will ever happen again though.

    Not gonna lie, I'm a little upset about no Lockdown. Or maybe a Devcon to even things out a little.

    Exhaust looks like he has big red lips to match his red eyes.

    Better and worse are subjective terms. Lots of people are gonna respond to the design differently, both positively and negatively. You're entitled to dislike the design, but for so-

    Nah I'm just messing with you! It looks a little off to me as well!
    I think it's the cheeks that's bugging me. They look a little too sunken in, giving him a malnourished and almost skeletal face. Here he is from the trailer a few months back for comparison:

    He looks a little better, but the upper half of his face still looks like one big slope. Maybe it's just the lighting?

    You would think a Netflix show would at least have different faces for their characters instead of redecos (of Wheeljack and Bee) but naaaah "Toys are like that, so our silly cartoon can be like that too!"

    Cheapos...

    "I have the toy of that guy! The thing that is in my hand right now is on the screen! UUUUUUHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"

    Poor Wheeljack , already shelfwarming like crazy.
     Hope he has some good scenes to inspire people to go buy him.

     Thinking optimistically , maybe parents out Christmas shopping will snatch him up. 
     For a first timer, it may make a better gift to a kid than a little yellow dude would.

    So, no Quintesson Judge or Doublecross? Kinda strange to leave out them, it looks like they have something going for them in Earthrise.

    Actually they didn't it's based off an early design for the toy.
    https://news.tfw2005.com/2020/10/02/earthrise-doubledealer-concept-art-by-ken-christiansen-421067

    So Hasbro's toy department changed something and didn't forward those changes or it was just a cost thing. Studio didn't have the time to remoldel, fix the animation and renders or Hasbro didn't want to pay to update what's in the show. I'd hazard a guess it's a similar reason why Exhaust has WJ's head.

    Doubledealer's face makes him look like a neighborhood bully from an old cartoon. Looks like complete trash.

    Da Ef with Doubledealer's face? And Exhaust! Roosterteeth is such a cheapo! Does Hb even want to sell the toy( ha ha jokes on us as they probably sold enough already :ev: ) with this horrid looking render of their product?:crazy: 

    Naaaaaaaaah. :lolol The show would be a good nice to see reimagining but it ain't no TF canon for me.

    Dealer in the anime was more of an ambivalent warrior, a kind of Thundercracker type to the cause (especially in the manga). Until the transtector developed it's own sentience.

    Eventually Hasbro is going to get so cheap with voice talent that they'll cast Microsoft Sam as every character.

    At least that way they wouldn't be straining the voice talent by forcing them to stretch out every single line forever.

    Maybe a missed opportunity but this artwork wouldve been cool on the back of the Netflix packaging if it were done like the old G1 packaging.

    Except this time the battles on the box would actually be scenes taken from the show.
    Since the G1 art was neither from the toys or show.

    Maybe I’m just a nerd.
