    He's a criminal, right? And his voice actor is black so that's how he talks.

    Grim should be a bruiser not a loser.

    My brain hurts, I can't decide if I hate it and want to love it or love it and want to hate it. The characters seem interesting, and I love the little continuity bridging nod to prime (unlike WFC/FOC, I really wish they'd just declare it it's own series), however the decepticons seem a little too cartoony, and the animation style seems iffy at best. I also have to wonder what happened to airachnid, the insecticons, shockwave, Starscream, and the predacons and why all of the new decepticons have animalistic themes. I would hope either soundwave or megatron will make an appearance as they (and of course airachnid) were the only ones to not get a proper wrap up at the end of prime.

    I don't hear a thug voice at all. I hear a black VA with a slight accent. No more thug than Prime Fowler.

    Not saying you have to like it. Just saying I really, really don't agree with that judgement of the character based off what we've seen so far.

    For the moment, he's looking to be one of my favorite additions to the show. I hope he's not just a one-off character, though.

    Bisk reminds me of the Crab People from South Park. I like the voice acting, but the animation will take getting used to.

    I don't know if this has been brought up yet, but every time I see Strong Arm my mind automatically sees her as Alternators Wheeljack. Am I crazy?

    This Grimlock's going to take some getting used to. He's been "gravelly with a speech impediment" forever, it's just weird hearing something else.

    I dig it, the animation is going to take some time to get used to but it's pretty neat looking. Not a fan of the campy Power Rangers villain type Con though. It's also really strange hearing Bee talk too. But I'm in.

    Only clips, but I'm liking it so far. Capture Decepticons so it seems we are getting away from the dark doom and gloom stuff. The characters seem like they are going to have a lot of personality and I'm really liking this new take on Grimlock. And it's looking like maybe the Decepticons have a few screws loose so fun villains as well.

    Not totally sold on the art style, but as long as the series has interesting stories and characters then I can get used to the art.

    That would make for an interesting twist for Grimlock. Having his alt mode be a Cybertronian while his real alt mode is a Dinosaur can lead into some interesting stories like maybe the other Dinobots are like that too.

    I like the characters, but that animation is..well..it's certainly something else, that's for sure

    And having Cyborg's voice actor voice Grimlock is an interesting choice, but it will take me a while to actually think that he is Grimlock, the voice is just so different from what he usually has

    That crab guy kinda reminds me of roboto and clamps from Futurama. That being said, I hope he's not just in one episode. :lol  (although he'd probably be better off in small doses.)

    I think I'm gonna have to check out this series when it airs before I decide whether or not I like it.

    Looks decent. Looks like a cross between Animated style designs, Prime story, and Rescue Bots demographic. I'll give it a watch.

    'Roll up and roll out' made me laugh.

    I'm not in love with the animation, but then Prime's grew on me so it's not a big deal.

    I like Strongarm a lot.

    My brain keeps interpreting Sideswipe as Knock Out and I get confused.

    Grimlock looks interesting.

    I'm willing to give this series a chance, but atm I'm not too thrilled about it.
