Hasbro and CakeMix Studios revealed a ton of information about the upcoming Transformers: PRIME series that will air later this fall on The Hub. The following information are the notes I took throughout the duration of their panel. Looks like some great stuff. Hope you guys are as excited as I am!
Full CG show (computer animation cartoon)
Movie set the bar for Autobot - Decepticon action
Crazy awesome action
Amazed at what they have in the show
Level of CG never been attempted for TV
Show picks up on Earth
Bots and Cons have been living on Earth for a while
Group of Autobots stayed behind
Some have left
Cybertron is a bit of a husk
Decepticon activity is at a minimum
Optimus Prime is leading the Autobots
Group of Autobots: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee (motorcycle), Bulkhead, Ratchet, Cliffjumper
Group of Decepticons: Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave
Exploring the characters in new and different ways
People behind the show really do get it
Currently working on the last few scripts of the first season
26 episodes initially
Peter Cullen and Frank Welker as voice actors
Doing a more "softer, evil side" voice for Megatron
Cullen: privilege to work with Welker
Showed video clip of Cullen and Welker talking about each other, how great it is to work with each other again, and them doing a recording session together. Pretty awesome.
Megatron has some classic elements to his look. Bucket head, arm cannon. G1 is biggest reference.
Prime looks like a cross between movie prime and WFC Prime.
Can't reveal other voice actors at this time.
Megatron transforms into a jet. He is not an Earth vehicle. Very space age looking jet. Cybertronian technology. Lot of fire power.
Goal is around 65 episodes to offset the cost of creating the CG models
Really focused on the G1 point of view
If you're a fan of TFA or Beast Wars, there might be some nods to those series in first season but focus is G1
Not sure what it will air on internationally and Canada
Wouldn't answer questions about Transformers Prime toys.
Yes there will be humans. Show is bot-centric however.
Alluded to there being a macguffin
Optimus Prime transforms into a aemi-truck similar to the movie
Bumblebee transforms into a Camaro looking car
Megatron transforms into a jet similar to the 1st movie jet
Look of the robots reminds me of the movie, but stylized (ala the Bumblebee images we've already seen)
Bulkhead's alt mode pulls from the "lore". Assuming he will have a mode similar to his TFA self.
Arcee will have one bot humanoid mode. Will NOT be like ROTF version.
Cliffjumper will have his own bot mode. Not a Bumblebee repaint
Susan Blu was directing Welker and Cullen in video they showed us. Could she be Arcee?
The Hub channel debuts 10-10-10 (October 10th, 2010). Transformers: Prime might not initially debut with the channel and might be a month or two behind the channel's launch.
That's it! On to the Hasbro Marketing Review and Q&A panel that all of you are anxiously waiting for.
