    From a marketing perspective, that's a terrible idea. Hate to say it, but a 'mature' Transformers series would only appeal to mostly adult TF fans, and although we seem like many on sites such as these it is still a very niche market. Almost everything has not just us in mind. Hell, even Masterpiece is aimed at collectors who collect multiple toylines, not just Transformers.

    Now, if an anime studio were to do it it could work. If it were to happen, I'd say Ufotable would be the best bet with how complex all the Transforming parts would be if you still wanted to keep it in 2D without going full Energon/Cybertron/Go! or something.

    Maybe Producton IG would work. Madhouse and Bones would have a chance of CGI Transformers though.

    Funny thing, this series is produced by Studio Polygon, the guys behind Knights of Sidonia.

    Well, the series would have to be geared towards an adult demographic. There's no way parents would let kids watch a bloody and brutal Transformers series with morally grey characters.
    I'm skeptical of Bones doing it. They could perfect the formula Prime was striving for, but I feel they would put too much comedy in a dark science-fiction horror series.

    Think if they were to do a TF series that's similar in tone of Samurai Jack and Sym-Bionic Titan where it can have both dark and funny moments done well I'd be satisfied.

    Ufotable would probably do it best if they had the right directors.

    Get Gen Urobuchi on it too.

    Oh, and Vince Dicola for the OST!

    AND WINDBLADE! (Because she's really bland in this series).

    Still, NONE of this will happen. You know why? Because Hasbro makes Transformers for kids. Period. Even the movies are like that, despite all the inappropriate humour.

    Last season of this incredibly cheap show. Even "Carnage in C-Minor" had a bigger budget than this stinker.

    Awesome trailer! This season looks promising. Though I'm a little bummed that there was no sign of Fracture... :(

    New lady-bot-who-it-would-be-cool-if-its-Antagony-but-God-knows-they-don't-like-using-old-characters is Grey DeLisle I think.

    Steeljaw ain't fucking around this time, he went for the whole herd. :lol  Wonder how poor Kickback is gonna take it after having to endure Fifty Shades of Insecticon last season. Hope the Con main cast is still Steeljaw, Thunderhoof, Clampdown, Fracture, and Underbite‚Ķ plus Maybe-Antagony.

    Anyone find it odd that Steeljaw was able to get into the scrapyard again? You'd think the Bot's would have beefed up security after getting locked out.

    And I'm not sure that was Groundpounder,he looked more like an ourangutan to mee

    Groundpounder can be seen in the opening shot with all the Decepicons. The other one is currently an unknown Decepticon.

    Yes, one episode of a 30 year old cartoon has a higher budget than an entire season's worth of animation.

    Don't like the show, that's fine. But that doesn't make your opinion fact.

    Yes, I found it odd too, I was thinking that maybe the autobots needed more people on their side, so, the autobots let Steeljaw and the others out to help them.

    I doubt they'll name her that, she'll probably have a randomly newish name or something.

    also I'm thinking Miyuki Sawashiro should voice her in the Japanese dub.

    Not gonna lie if that lady con turns out to be Antagony I would fangasim over the mere fact that they chose a very lesser known botcon character to show up in a TF series. :D

    I really wish Starscream and Megatron would come back. I feel like the Decepticons in this show just lack a sense of urgency...they never really pose a real threat. Steeljaw's face is also just too goofy to be menacing.
