Well from what clips I've seen of BWII and BWN, sometimes they look horrid (I'm guessing this is when the Korean studios are at work... ), but other times they look amazing, the Neo intro being a good example.
I guess it is like Armada and Energon in that sense, when it looks bad it looks real bad, but when it looks good it looks real good.

Man, what I'd give for another traditionally animated TFers show, like, TFP's amazing and all, but still it ain't the same... :-(

Looking for:
Actionmaster Prime's Armored Convoy, just the cab and trailer with it's smokestacks, add in anything else if you want <=D.
ROTF Skystalker's right wing piece (Left axe)and Star Convoy(Encore).

You call this badly-animated?





Opening and Ending themes don't count. Go watch the show itself. The animation is horrible. Probably some of the worst I've seen. I have the entire series of Beast Wars Neo on my PC and it's just one big epic fail of a story from beginning to end. Basically BWII and BWNeo was the cheapest solution (and time filler) for Takara to sell their toys off while waiting for Beast Wars S2 and S3 to complete.

As I've said in the past, any and all criticism of BWII and Neo just makes me wanna watch them even more to see for myself. ;)
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Just about every Transformer series has found it's way to my living room thanks to the internet.

But I did pay about $200 for all the G1 seasons from Rhino. Those are special to me.

No Shout! Factory G1 DVDs? To me, the new bonus content and remastered original broadcast-accurate video/audio made them worth double-dipping on. ;)

How can a story with Unicron be horrible?
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

OF course it is a horrible story. How many Japanese TF series have had excellent stories? Still, I want this nonetheless.

"Reaching the Omega Point"

Reading that long epic in one sitting can be hazardous to your sanity. :BOOM:

Yeah, I did it. It wasn't fun. >:oP

Masterforce was excellent. Cybertron/Galaxy Force was also pretty good.
