    OK....wicked creepy! I had a dream last night about a new Beast Wars special with Beast wars level CGI Prime and Bumblebee going to get the Matrix. Now I wake up and see this post


    I can read the interwebs with my mind!!!!


    LOL but in all seriousness I hope the Hasbro has the presence of mind to use CGI to give us something on Par with Beast wars and not more Galaxy Force Level garbage (calling it garbage in terms on animation qaulity only)

    I'm not sure how far television CG has come, but it should at least look better than Beast Wars. I still would have preferred traditional animation though.

    I forgot about Clone Wars. If it can look that good, I'll be happy.

    Do you know what I actually want in this new series? REAL LIFE VEHICLES. None of those made of vehicles like in the Unicron trilogy. That was a real turn off. Even if the characters did look good.

    They can't use real vehicles without licensing deals, the best we can hope for is classics style facsimiles.

    Me too. They do action well! Zentrix had some tight robot fights, I'd love to see something along those lines in a Transformers' show.

    As long as they use War For Cybertron style animation, i'm fine with it.

    I don't like Kurtzman and Orci, they are shoddy writers. I'd rather have some fresh blood/a new approach to Transformers at this point.

    Oh! Zentrix was sooooo badass! And they did TMNT.

    By real vehichles I mean I want them to resemble vehicles that you would see in real life not what was seen in TF: Cybertron

    I sincerely hope this will be the new Beast Wars. If they can write on the level of Forward and DiTillio, and the CGI is better than Energon's everything and Cybertron's animation, and just as good as the Beast Era, this will be outstanding.

    I hope they make it with a "Cell-Shaded" look ala DragonBooster or League of Super Evil, this could help attract some of the "2D" fans.

    Sorry, but it'll flop. CGI animation on TV looks horrid. Madagascar Penguins, the Qubo cartoons, etc look horrible. The last CGI-enhanced Transformers cartoons (Energon and Cybertron) looked horrible too.

    I hope the new series is NOTHING like Beastwars. I don't want a soap opera cartoon. I want light and fluffy fun, such as the case with G1 and Animated.

    Also, please have Orci & Kurtzman have as little to do with the cartoon as possible. I'm tired of sex jokes, racism, and flatulence in my Transformers.

    I was always under the impression that these inclusions came from Bay, not the writers.

    I think their involvement will be a good thing, ultimately. I wonder if this series will follow the canon established in WFC?
