I hope the new series looks and feels like the fall of cybertron game. It's a nice mix between g1 and modern transformers.

Why did you (and/or Cartoon Network, depending on who you talk to) cancel a perfectly good series that appealed to both children, AND adults? And now you're scratching your heads, wondering what kind of transformers series could possibly appeal to children and adults?

Try NOT cancelling the good series' that you've already done before dweedling your lips and wondering how come there aren't any. Why re-invent the wheel here when TFA was a great series that was killed while it still had plenty of juice in it?


I have two boys - and this is the series we keep watching over and over. Prime is too dark or serious for them (they like the fight scenes, but when Ratchet laid out on a table about to be interrogated, no), G1 varies so much from show to show and has bizarre plots and too many new/random interchanging characters.

Rescue bots was great, but they got tired of it. Decepticons are fun!

So what was wrong with animated? Probably the artwork :)

I love Animated. Am working my way through now and really like it. I also will probably start in on Animated toys next, because I really like how they closely resemble the actual character on the show, which is really fun. Animated was such a fun, clever show with SO many homages to other iterations. Fun.

The real problem with animated is that it isn't finished.

Don't tell me that, I'll be disappointed when I get to the "end." ;)

It did, however, get "expanded" upon with additional media outside the show that is 90% in continuity with the show (I say "90%" because there is some non-show media that is meant to be only "based on" the show rather than directly tie into it), making the world of the Animated cartoon be even bigger, better, and far richer than ever before. :D
