    Each fan will have their own opinion on the show/series it maybe great to one person and terrible to the other.
    But I do appreciate your willingness to give it a chance.

    Who will be genderbent this time?
    100% agree. A show filled with SJW ideals is the thing I fear the most.

    I don't really know the people involved in this project and their previous works (last TF series I watched were Prime and Animated, and I'm really hoping they aren't going for anything that resembles Animated's design style), so I'll keep my finger crossed until next year.

    social justice is cool and good and while I certainly wouldn't expect any Transformers cartoon to turn into old school Star Trek (although that would be fun) I kind of want them to lean that way *just* to spite the cowards that fear it

    Like do you people get mad about the obvious class conflict allegories in the IDW comics or are you just bothered by other things or something?

    the pacing was slow as hell. the movements were slow as hell, the environments were too overly simplistic in most cases. the shading and highlights on the landscapes and the 3d models were trash. the voice acting was not good. (Cyberverse quality)

    Shall I continue?

    SPLIT doesn't like Prime and prefers the old Red vs Blue and Achievement Hunter's unscripted content over the big budget current stuff they do. you see positives, split sees possibilities for no fun

    I hope it's Voltron good, but I'm not gonna pass judgement until we know more.

    Their general style is just really off putting for me. It feels too stiff and forced and I also really don't like the "western anime" thing. It's just not for me

    Voltron was a "netflix original" show. Meaning some quality control etc.
    This new tf show is just on netflix, like how you get old shows they had nothing to do with on there. Its not one of their original shows.
    The same way stuff is just on itunes but not made by itunes.

    I legitimately hope the show is not garbage.
    I guess nobody read anything i said before flinging insults at me?

    I blockdd that guy as people who who cant handle someone saying "i dont like show x" and then throwing out juvenile insults is not someone i want to waste my time communicsting with.

    Saying im "toxic" is just downright lazy and inaccurate.
    I dont spend hours every week writing articles about something i love with a passion (tf) for no reason.

    I like 90% of tf fiction out there. Even some stuff that others cant stand.
    There is no shortage of people that disliked the machinima series.
    There is nothing the least bit controversial about that statement.

    Anyhow, i really hope that this new show bucks the odds, despite havinf the core writers of a series i did not enjoy and put the quality or less than cybertron. No disrespect intended to fans who ennoyed those things.
    I cant stand them.

    Ok, try to steer away form controversial comments or what not. I'll keep an eye on this so it doesn't get crazy.

    This is false. It’s a Netflix Original (although probably produced under a licensed model, as opposed to Netflix owning the copyright, which I doubt Hasbro would permit). As such, Netflix will have approval over every aspect of the show from budget to casting to scripts to art design.

    Correct, although as stated above there is more to it than that.

    The other thing that’s interesting is that it falls within Netflix’s anime division ('Transformers' Animated Series Coming to Netflix), not its kids divisions. This is also excellent news for us because it will likely be a bit more sophisticated.

    HOLY...! What the heck happened to Red vs. Blue?!

    And now I suddenly want to hear Jamie Marchi or Brina Palencia as Chromia.

    The pessimist in me says that the reason the people in question chose to work on this project is because, in their minds, it won't require much work. Simply put, they're lazy and think that this will just be an easy job for them because it's just a dumb show based on a toyline.

    I can't say for sure since I can't read their mind, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's how they saw this.
