    Like it or not folks, this is the series that will dictate the direction Transformers media takes for the next 10 if not 20-25 years. You'll still get your Generations toys, and your shitty comics, but this, this is Transformers television for the long haul. No more reboots for a while, if ever.

    Hmm. Interesting look. Not sure how feel about it. I really diged that animatic... but so much these.

    Not see'ing and WFC elements here... more like Movie designs to me.

    Except for Megatron- he's more TF: Animated.

    Animated's style was more or less based on the style of Generation 1, but here, it looks like they have Animated's style based on the Movie designs. In other words, I LOVE it.

    Megatron looks pretty cool. I can hear his classic voice - the look on his face in the image seems like he's disgusted or annoyed, saying "Spare me your pathetic whining, Starscream" or something like that. I hope they friggin' synthesize it this time to make it sound robotic. Not alter it so it doesn't sound like Frank Welker, just give it a mechanical resonance.

    And I dunno if it's the striped shirt and spiked hair the kid has and/or the premise of the story, but there's something about Dennis & Gnasher that reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes.

    Well...when Beast Wars came out i hate it but then i ended up loving it. When Beast Machines came out i thought "UGH" and now i have it on DVD to watch it everything i want. When Armada came out i thought "WTF? D8" and i ended up watching the whole trilogy. When Animated came out i was like "Primus save us!" and now i think it was one of the best shows of the franchise.
    Its takes time getting used to a new tf toon. And this one..doesnt seem bad either. I like that preview we had some time ago and if the plot is good, i am gonna end up watching the whole thing. ^^
    Now toys, please! XD

    Doesn't really have a name of it's own, as it's basically a drone. From what I can remember, they're being referred to as Decepticon "Troopers".

    Meh. I'm kind of getting dizzy by how many different design universes Hasbro is shoving at us. It's getting ridiculous. Design wise this is not an improvement from TFA. Not at all. But it's nice to see they stole some of the fun caricature from that amazing show.

    Maybe these will look good moving. I like lots about it - just not at all excited.

    GIVE US TFA SEASON 3 ON DVD!!!

    Yea, not feeling these designs at all. It looks like they are trying to combine Animated and Movie aesthetics, but those two universes are complete and total opposites from one another. Both universes have cool designs and I while I kinda understand what they were trying to pull off here, I just feel like these designs kinda look like a trainwreck of two different universes that really don't belong together.

    Yeah, kind of Calvin and Hobbes crossed with Wallace and Gromit.

    Decepticon Trooper. Basically the foot soldiers of the show.

    lol Seems that way.

    Ratchet looks very nice. I'd love to get a toy of him simply because of that design.

    I also think the "Decepti-Trooper" alt. mode looks cool, too. I do like my generics, so if they make toys of this design I might buy in bulk.

    Megatron's head looks kinda odd, but I want to see the design in motion before I actually make a final call.

    It's always funny to watch certain people look at illustratively stylized character designs and call it "horrible kids stuff".

    Is it your personal favorite retro mecha aesthetic? Nope. But that doens't mean it sucks. News flash, things chance. Styles change. Don't like it? Maybe it's time for you to take a brake. As I've sead before, that's what I did during the Unicron Trilogy.

    Also...Twisted Whiskers? They're making a show out of those odd greeting cards?
