    No, that's just me going off of the end of Prime, where the Cons were disbanded and the team remained on Cybertron to rebuild and reestablish the planet before the refugees returned. Just the given stuff. It is a sequel, after all.

    If Starscream isn't in it, then they might as well cancel the show right now. I LOVED Prime, it got me interested in transformers again, but this isn't Prime this is a poor excuse for a replacement.

    You've seen ONE(two if we count Optimus-Wan-Kenobi) image for the show. How can you make a fair judgement based on that 0.o seems a bit unfair.

    I look at it from a different point of view. This is TF Prime without everything I want in it.

    Is this an attempt to make the show kid friendly?

    Is what in particular?

    Anyway the show is specifically geared to getting Crossover Audience.

    Hasbro's research showed that the young Target Audience of Rescue Bots love it but that their Older siblings and parents also watched and enjoyed it. It has Crossover Audience appeal.

    Prime/BH while enjoyed by an older audience decently really only appealed to them and did not have real crossover audience.

    So this new show is engineered to fix that and hopefully be enjoyable by all ages, as Rescue Bots is.


    -ZacWilliam, it's a very good goal if they pull it off well...

    As much as I love dark and serious, Prime went overboard and took itself so seriously it would frown at you if you tried to crack a smile... it became a chore to watch and lost it's entertainment value. Beast Wars and Animated did an amazing job at keeping both kids and adults entertained, because they were not dumbed down just for children... they were both lighthearted which has general appeal :)

    Back in 2006 when the early movie bumblebee images were criticized ,the detractors were called GEewunners. But they were right. changing a character once has a ripple effect. the poison effects of bayverse keep rippling out down the artistic lakes. That thing's even worse than baybee though, at least he was weak at times"getting towed around" and had little horns. I can imagine how much better both baybee and this baldbot would have been improved if they brought on fans like derrick wyatt to design them

    Chill. It has been said hundreds of times these aren't the finished designs.

    really you think,the final design is going to be completely different? All I expect based on past trends are perhaps minor proportion changes and a more advanced rendering style. The bald head aka "primebumblebee" will likely still be there along with the basic chest and body design

    You don't even KNOW what's in it, so how can you tell?

    Oh wait, you can't.

    Let's just wait till next year to actually judge it on its own merits.

    I have never seen somebody get so worked-up about Bumblebee missing his horn... talk about first world problems. Surly that will not be the only thing that will define this show. I hate Bumblebee, but I'm not writing this show off just because he's in it... I also didn't have a seizure when they didn't call Airachnid Blackarachnia

    Well if you hate Bumblebee to begin with, of course it's not going to bother you that they get rid of the horns.

    What I hate isn't so much encapsulated in any one detail change, but more the fact that over the past few years they managed to turn Bumblebee into a character that's so unappealing and widely detested, and yet heavily pushed and promoted.

    Which is why I gave the Blackarachnia/Airachnid example, a character I do like...

    I thought that was an unnecessary bit of character confusion, but not really something worth raging over. Anyway I didn't want the hassle of arguing with fans who maintained that Airachnid was a totally original, totally unrelated character. And as it turns out, quickly forgotten, whereas variations on the new version of Bumblebee simply refuse to go away.

    I really wished they stayed with the 3D polygon animation as they did with Transformers Prime. I really hope they still have Arcee with the same voice Actress Sumalee Montano.

    I can't say I don't like it. I just hope he gets a good toy this time around
