    From the looks of it, seems like they will translate very nicely into good toys too judging by the designs

    Also, in agreement That Guy. Try to incorporate at least a couple characters from the game.

    I didn't read through the whole thread but anybody else want Ghostimus to actually be a symptom of Bumblebee's psychotic breakdown because of the stress of leadership?

    Basically like Rick in Season 3 of the walking dead :D  Too dark for a kid's show maybe? lol

    I actually kind of like the design, but I'm not sure about the art-style, if that makes sense. Will have to wait to see how it looks when animated.

    Can't help but notice how it says "Brand New Series" when it would be the same old story aside from what is clearly obvious that they totally defaced Optimus of his G1 ninja mask!

    All good points... but a nose need not be for actual smelling. For one thing, the G1 noses didn't exactly have NOSTRILS, did they? I think of the noses more as decorative rectangles. They gave the faces some distinct features... in that not EVERY face needed a nose.

    Prime removing EVERY nose is just overkill, IMO. I can see how some bots might find it unnecessary and lame, but then so were the "shades" on a lot of G1 bots. And the bright colors. It's just all arbitrary and subjective to your personal tastes: something G1 kind of did better by having so many non-functional facial features. Prime.... where's your personality??? Your faces all look alieny (giant eyes) and similar.

    The Marvel comics sometimes featured TF with nostrils. Dunno if they ever sniffed stuff with them though.

    I get this massive "Galaxy Force" feel from that design and I don't know why. (I never even watched Cybertron)

    Did anyone else think "Ghost Prime" then suddenly shudder at memories of a former member?

    Uh...Umm....did you actually read the synopsis for the new show?

    It's a sequel show, set a year after Predacons Rising.
