    I think I heard a theme song in the background. Sounded pretty cool.

    Optimus was called the leader of the Autobots a lot as well over here, mostly by humans i the show and in promotions in real life, like that commercial. It was just naturally taken as meaning the Earth-bound Autobots. I wouldn't start reading too much into it like they're editing Magnus out or something.

    Just keep in mind that kids (target 5 ~ 8 years old as announced) have no knowledge of the who will be in the show. The only know Optimus as the leader from Bay's movies.
    I will say kids over there will love the story of how Optimus becomes the true leader of the Autobots from his current position as the space bridge maintaince team leader.

    If I ever do a video review of a Japanese Animated toy, I am pronouncing "Animated" like these guys do.

    I like Megatron's new voice.

    Bumblebee... Well, it's certainly Bumblebee.

    Opteemoose Praimoh Daioh's voice seems a little too generic for my tastes.

    God I hope they don't try to change 'Ironhide' into a badass rather than a bumbler

    Wait, no, I don't actually care.

    Stream of consciousness folks!

    So I guess this means they're not calling Optimus Prime "Convoy" anymore

    I had really no idea what was going on, but I guess that's what I get for not knowing Japanese

    Well, I guess the issue with Sentinel and Magnus should be shown during the phone call in the first ep, one way or another - but I guess I shouldn't read too much into it, as suggested.

    Megatron sounds...just too much like Flame Convoy. Sorry for the voice actor who plays him, but make him sound different, at least with a deeper voice.

    As for the commercial itself...eh, I just hope the dub doesn't suck like what happened with Beast Wars...

    Hmm, so are they dropping the 'Convoy' name now in favour of 'Prime'? And i heard 'Autobot' being used in there too, so no more 'Cybertron' and 'Destrons' then?

    Optimus kinda sounds a little like Lio Convoy to me.

    And to the person who was asking whether the second commmercial had BA's voice in it, it did sound like a feminie voice at first to me as well, but then i listened again and i think it's the Japanese 'young boy' type of voice. Could be BB's.
