    No. As much as I love those two (and I love those two dearly), just, no. They wouldn't be right for this. If you put those two in this, they'd end up being the animated versions of movie Skids and Mudflap.

    No you just have extremely unoriginal ideas for creating your own fanon with your toys and put other media into them.

    Just like what RT does.

    Not sure if this puts anyone at ease but while DeSanto was involved with Titans and Combiner, he had little to no control and was not the show runner on those. He did however write Primes which was the one people seem to like the most. I do personally know him as we are involved in some music production stuff (his band is on my indie label that put out the Respect the Prime tribute that a lot of you tfcon goers know). I'm not here to say "this is gonna be the best thing ever" but knowing how hard he has been working on this is a definite plus.

    Boy, it is easy to forget that not everyone always likes the stuff. I spend most of my time online around the RT Community and RT is my biggest client, so its weird to see that "Oh yeah, they aren't everyone's cup of tea." But I suppose c'est la vie. I'm excited to see what they do.

    While I do have some critiques for RWBY, nothing has been a real deal breaker for me and I think the show's art direction and animation gets better every season. Plus Gen: Lock has just been knocking it out of the park. So we will see what they do with Transformers. With a different studio handling the animation and knowing that the writing staff (and show runner) has experience with Transformers in the past, I don't think we will see too much RT influence in it. MAAAAYBE some Easter Eggs or cameos, but really, I suspect they are going to be handling the management on the show and won't really have a lot of creative input.

    ...if an original transformers series is coming to netflix, i hope that bodes well for the return of all seasons of prime, rescue bots, and robots in disguise: i still need to finish those from when they cut me off last year...

    ...at the very least, rooster teeth will bring in competent voice direction and polygon will bring in competent animation, which together address half the deficiencies from the machinima series...

    well i guess this is gonna be my first transformers series i pass up.anything to do with rooster teeth or funimation I'm no longer watching after the way they handled the Vic Mignogna drama (poorly i might add). oh well i have friends that buy box sets when they come out and I'm sure Hasbro will, my friend will get it and I'll watch his copy because their not getting a penny from me and I'm not gonna get into how i hate the price jump in transformers toys but that's another subject >.>

    Nope, sorry couldn't listen anymore after that.

    I will however keep my hopes high that this new project will be the best TF show since Sunbow's G1 season 3.... Because if it is then to me it'll be the only TF cartoon since G1 S3.

    And you complained about RT's hipster writing.

    We'll get characters that all talk like message board rants, and every scene will end with a "hilariously derailing one-liner." And voice acting will be irrelevant because they'll all be written with ostensibly the same voice.

    Here’s the thing. Roberts wrote MTMTE like it was a show. That’s the biggest flaw with MTMTE/LL in my opinion. It wasn’t written like a comic. I wanna see what he can do with a show because I think that’s where he can excel. I am not a huge fan of his storytelling I’ll admit but I will not deny he’s not a good character writer. The opposite with Scott. I think she’s a great story teller but her character writing isn’t that great. I’d like to see them both worth together on a show and bring their strengths to the table.

    Oh yeah, it started so rough. I think this was the first fully original animated show RT did. It was a pretty small crew and probably a bit of a risk so they didn't invest as much money as they do now. But as its done so well for them, they've been able to grow their staff a lot. And even their established staff has been able to produce better and better work, as you would expect from any artist who gets to practice their craft a lot.

    I don't think that was the problem towards the end of the Robert's run as it was the kind of content getting shoved in.
