    It was almost as fast as being the youngest in the world...

    I hope the toys not only looks accurate but that the toys won't have this BS lame excuses-blame-it-on-slow-dumb-american-kids written all over it to save money. Stick that only to the movie toys please.

    Protip: Hasbro, stop testing your toys on your own kids...

    Prime will stay dead for maybe the first season and then come back. I'm interested to see about megatron though. Starscream is a slave to predaking and eventullay escapes. Don't know about shockwave. Probably keeping all prime characters in a supporting role atleast. Soundwave will make it out of the shadowzone. I'm predicting this based on the assumption that it will be a direct sequel to prime, ofcourse, not like 1 mil. years later.

    First rule of the Transformers:
    Can't have a Transformers cartoon, movie or video game without Optimus Prime. If you do you are destined to fail.

    If they bring to much humor in the show it will fail. To the majority of the fans Transformers Animated was a bad little kids show.

    ....que?

    You haven't been on TFW much lately, have you?

    Except a lot of people have been clamoring for a not Optimus filled series.

    They've also been clamoring for a not Bumblebee filled one, but one out of two ain't bad.

    I can't agree with this in any way whatsoever... Animated stands out to me as perhaps the best TF show made in recent times. Sure it was humerous in places but damn if it also wasn't serious in others and had actual, honest-to-goodness character development. If this new show even achieves half of what Animated did, then I'm on board.

    As to the poster, I know this is all WIP but I am liking the overall aesthetic. And that Optimus design is beefy as hell! ^^

    Thank you! I thought I was the only one that was getting this!!! And the toys don't forget the toys!

    I'm due for another series and they may even tie in some elements from the upcoming movie. And if that's the case i would love to see more dinobot toys that are not from the movie(as good as the new movie dinobots look to me.)

    Animated Grimlock was a good toy but those lanky arms kinda throws me off to this day. And i'm sure you will all agree when i say that if you had to pick a figure to represent TFANiMATED it would be the first bumblebee toy they released. He's still one of my favorite figures of all time. I'm not a bumblebee fan.

    Wait wasn't G1 a kids show too? Keep in mind there are less regulations on violence shown to children back then. Almost all cool cartoons with the eception of my little pony and carebears had a lot of violence in it. Silverhawks, Thundercats, Centurions, VoltesV, Daimos(yeah i grew up in asia). And these were considered childrens shows.

    I actually found the humor of TFAnimated refreshing. It had a very ANIME feel to it which i loved and the humor kept me coming back expecting to have fun after each episode......And I'm 33 now!

    So i get that the target demographic are children but we need to see the show for what it is. It's marketing to sell toys. Tf Animated was really well done in my opinion but that's just me. I just hope they do as good a job with this one if not better and actually learn from their mistakes with their product releases being in time with the show release. That's how they fucked up tfprime. Well, that and the 2nd and third season felt rushed.

    As long as this isn't Flash animation and has Decepticons, I'll be okay with it. I loathe the Flash style.

    "Use the Matrix, Bumblebee!"

    Well, I neither love it or hate it. Which I suppose is par for the course for TFP 2.0.
    Optimus: "Give me your face!"

    Bumblebee: "No."

    Optimus: "... Can we at least share it then?"

    Bumblebee: "Only if you tell everyone I'm the leader now."

    Ok looking at the image in an iPhone here... I zoomed way in on prime, and it looks to me like he was sketched... The lines outlining the shoulders cross outside the bounderies... Like the artist was just quickly dootling his new design... Which I must admit, I like quite a bit

    It could just be artistic composition. But when adding in that this series is supposed to be a continuation of "Prime" with Bumblebee leading the Autobots in place of OP and OP "dying" at the end of "Predacons Rising", it's quite a solidly based speculative assumption. No jumping.

    I still don't like Bumblebee's design, but Prime doesn't look bad.

    Look forward to seeing the rest of the characters, especially Megatron. You know he'll be in it, and maybe he'll be reformed.
