The review is for the premiere movie length episode of the upcoming Transformers: Animated series, which is set to air on Boxing Day December 26th 2007.
Ben gives the premiere a positive review, going as far as to say: I think fans who many not have enjoyed the Beast Wars years or the Armada trilogy may actually enjoy this show as it has the most G1 style feel of any Transformers show since "Robots in Disguise".
Of course, as with any review, there are spoilers so consider yourselves forewarned.
Cartoon Network have updated their site with a new Transformers: Animated based card game.
The game seems to be a duelling game based on points gathered from selecting cards of the same colour. The decks contain cards of many of the Transformers:Animated cast, from Optimus Prime and Prowl to Megatron, Blackarachnia and Starscream as well as previously unseen humans such as Headmaster, Nanosec and Prometheus Black.
Other new characters that have been revealed in this game include Ironhide and the Constructicon Scrapper, the aforementioned human characters and known, but unseen characters of Soundwave and Sentinel Prime.
Earlier we reported that an auction for a new Transformers Animated Lugnut toy had surfaced on eBay - well now it seems the seller has updated the auction page with images of the new Voyager-Class Optimus Prime figure seen in a few of the photos with the Lugnut prototype.
You can see the new updated auction page with images of the prototype of the new Prime figure, with moveable battle-mask, by clicking here.
Brothers re-united again. Prime and Magnus, back on the small screen together, but in a seeming reversal of roles. Optimus is the younger unsure, hesitant leader, and Ultra Magnus, the older, and wiser leader.
