    History-based HAW!!

    I'm pretty confident Hasbro and Tomy-kara will come through there. I'm consistently amazed by their ability to defy "they'd never be able to make a transforming toy of THAT!" statements.

    Going by some of the movie toys, I almost wish they wouldn't.

    (And I LOVE the movie designs, but seriously, some of the toys of them (the on-screen characters especially) are nightmares. Deluxe or Voyager, Ironhide remains a frustrating panel-filled mess.)

    So what is with the human character hate? Like what is terrible about them? They're stylized and look like they could actually be interesting like Sari.

    Also I lurrrvv Arcee and Ratchet. Ratchet is smooth but bulky, and I will need to see how they do the toy for Arcee.

    Since we are on the topic of the humans.

    The designs aren't knocking it out of the park for me but at the same I don't dislike the look. I think this is going to be one of those cases where the personality is going to be more important than the design.

    Well for one, they're human characters. And no matter what, there's always going to be some fans who just hate the concept of human characters in a TF series.
    But I think whats bugging some people is the fact the two teenager characters, Miko and Jack, look like they could end up being annoying teenage stereotypes.
    Miko has kind of a Hot topic "mall goth/punk" look going on with the knee high black army boots and plush toys on her belt. So her attitude might be "like all totally whateves."
    Jack has that kind of typical brooding teenager look. He's not full on "emo" but he has enough cues that could esially mark him as such if he does turn out to be the moody loner type personality.
    I haven't really seen that much hate for 'Raf', but he does have that look of possibly being the loud obnoxious little kid archetype that would turn off a lot of older viewers.
    These are all however judgments made completely at face value.

    Me personally, I'm going to wait and see what their personalities actually turn out to be. But as is, their designs don't really bother me.

    I'm getting the feeling it'd be something like a cross between the engineering of the 2007 movie Arcee and TFA Prowl.

    I know, I really want to see Soundwave and Starscream. I wonder if Starscream will be a F22, F15, or something else

    I'm guessing his alt will be a made up jet that looks vaguely like it could be based off a real plane.

    Probably the case, considering the other (vehicle) designs I am sure it will most likely be a close representation of a real plane.

    These designs are definitely growing on me, however since I'm really only in it for the toys anymore unless it's really damn good, and those toys might not be coming, I can't say that this series really excites me that much. More power to the people that love this though, it's still excellent CGI and character design.

    Oh my god. That would be awesome.

    Jack Darby = Gabe. Now all we need is a TF Prime Tycho, and all my dreams will have come true. :D 

    And this belief is correct.

    wait

    My sarcasm detector is off, I guess. Did you just admit that TF2 had an overload of plot holes, racist stereotypes, bad acting, sexist depictions of women, overall bad writing, (all things that make a horrible movie by the way, period) and expect everyone to love it?

    :lolol

    Perhaps the alt modes of Bulkhead and Soundwave have slowed down their designs. For Bulkhead they are going to need something big if they want to have the character huge again, but they also need something that seems like something you might see on the road.

    Perhaps Starscream is slowed because it's going to be a tough sell one way or the other on him. Some people love the movie design and some people hate the movie design so which toes do you step on.

    It's also really early in the production as the clip from Comic Con showed they are still a good deal off from the finished product so every character might not have been finished in time for the presentation and some might still be in the rough sketch phase.

    I love going back and seeing the buzz of the past. It feels like yesterday that these designs were revealed. It makes me feel excited for Prime, even thought it's already almost gone....
