Did you really just say that they don’t keep going back to the exact same old? That almost made me laugh. Everything we’ve gotten that’s “Neo-G1” has pretty much been the same stuff over, and over, and over, and over and so on.
Animated doesn’t need a reboot; it needs the rest of its story told.
Hey was there gonna be a TF Wiki article of this? I didn’t think there was but I thought I heard whispers that there would be one. Or at least a mock TF Wiki article like with Trial and Error.
Some interesting stuff there like PowerMaster and Marauder being a Hasbro request the staff was willing to do.
All these ideas the staff had could have probably allowed Animated to run longer than it could have been.
Somebody needs to tell that to IDW. Maybe if we can find a way to make our voices heard.
My only two ideas on how to get more prints of the Almanacs are to either write IDW directly, or (since there's already a petition floating around for IDW to make a comic of TFA's season 4) to start a second petition asking for reprints. I'm more fond of the first idea.
IDW doesn't care. They tried to use Animated Season 4 as the butt of a joke to promote yet another G1 comic.
I'm hoping to see some Dery-ized Animated characters in WFC at some point.
Bulkhead, Lockdown, Lugnut, and a blue/orange Sentinel Prime.
Jokes on them, really. IDW didn't think that people actually wanted an Animated followup more than a Marvel comic sequel. By that point, the Marvel comic already received a sequel in the form of Generation 2, which was written by Simon Furman - the same guy who wrote Regeneration 1. And even before that came out, he wrote "Another Time and Place" which served as a different conclusion to the continuity. Regeneration 1 was basically a (terrible) combination of the two conclusions, and it's held in pretty low regard. But even without the sequels, the Marvel comic ended on a pretty solid note with issue #80 of the original series. Animated, meanwhile, never got to finish the story it was trying to tell.
True. They were thoroughly embarrassed when people cheered for an Animated comic. But IDW hasn't taken any hints from the fans, either, and decided the best way forward was to do yet another G1 flavored comic and a Marvel G1 prequel.
The reboot utilizing Siege designs seems to be a Hasbro mandate, and Transformers: '84 was actually pretty solid and a fun little celebration of the series' 35th anniversary.
But yeah, it would be nice to see them do something different in the future. Someday, hopefully.
Me and a friend took extensive handwritten notes during the TFN presentation of the S4 story treatments, and we're now proud to present a highly-detailed summary of the three unmade episodes!
EXCLUSIVE: Transformers Animated Season 4 “Trial of Megatron” Full Plot Summary!
Skimmed over the plot summary, it was very interesting to read.
Very interesting. A lot of this seems to have been repurposed into the Season 3.5 script readings we've gotten through BotCon, such as Arcee becoming Sari's teacher, and the Decepticons attacking Energon Farms.
I don't exactly agree with some of the choices made - like Bumblebee considering selling out Optimus in favor of Sentinel, which seems very out of character - but it's still good to see Season 4 come to light in some way.
*Cries* WHY HASBRO WHY?! This would've been an awesome season 4 opener!!!
While you can argue about Ratchet's trait throughout the series, those other examples are hardly "overuse" of comedy.
