    I'm just glad they've dumped the whole "bumblebee-the-mute" bullsh*t. Man, 7 years (minus animated) we've had to put up with that steaming load.

    Interesting. I'll reserve full judgement when I see them in action but so far it looks like an Animated style of the TF Prime design aesthetic. Neat actually. I'll be interested to see the toys though.

    I'm glad Prime is in it but I hope it aint the same Optimus. TFP Prime is boring and people still cling onto him

    Wait, I am confused now. Will the show be CGI like Prime or be animated like, well,
    Animated?

    Of course, I am an imbecile for not thinking it sooner... A clear plastic Optimus Prime toy...

    It's been stated that the characters will be CG blended into a 2D setting... so in a way both. Kinda like how Energon and Cybertron were done.

    Optimus used to often be compared to Obi-Wan now he looks like he will be even more like him - it is also a giggle to recall all the Transparent Optimus toys that get made and wonder if they make a toy of 2015 Optimus will it be in clear plastic too ?

    -------

    The robot mode has the chest doors not unlike Movie Prime, Shoulder lumps like Beast Hunters Prime and a general look that reminds me a lot of Orion Pax (from the cut scenes).
    Which he might even be if they can be bothered to be consistent (which I doubt very much).

    I'll be interested to see the other character reveals too - eventually.

    I notice too Bumblebee has wheels.

    I would just like to add that I can indeed emote with my nose and I expect some robots could too - at least the ones who turn into Bulls would - LOL

    These designs are slowly growing on me, actually; hopefully they'll translate well into toys eventually. Am also hoping this series is set entirely on Cybertron, so we can avoid having human characters crammed in our collective faces!!

    My only concern. Can Hasbro have toys out before the shows second season is half way done?

    Probably. That happened with Prime because they butchered the FE line stupidly, I think.

    That background is lovely, Cybertron is alive again. Finally a Transformers show that has an excuse to function on Cybertron thanks to beast hunters.

    As for Optimus Prime being back. He never really died. His spark left with the others from the well to reignite new forms.

    Maybe it's just me, but Bumblebee looks like a palette swapped Vehicon (minus the head and door wings).

    I just want to see decepticons. I don't care about BB or Prime.

    Hey I can't wait I must go glue some doors on a Botcon Animated Cheetor Figure right now!

    Oh and I'd not say no to Hotshot, Kup and the Starseekers being in the new show.

    I also think Magnus may get a drastically different body after he was injured, unless they leave him in a bad way so as to have the excuse for a Leadership Bumblebee.
