Fulfilling his role as the Autobot Fixit, that's what.

It's funny how people on both Seibertron and TFW2005 keep calling Strongarm (who's basically a larger version of TF:Prime Arcee) a bodybuilder and comparing her to Strika (who barely looks humanoid, let alone feminine) simply because she isn't another generic super-thin fembot.

Pfft, "bodybuilder". :roll:

Beast Machines Optimus Primal looked like a bodybuilder. Strongarm's just got a standard non-supermodel body.

I was under the assumption that the description was given in press releases :???:

If not though I can sorta see the logical hoops people would have jumped through. We have a fem bot who doesn't look at all like fem bots the fandom are used to. The question becomes why is she different then other fembots? Sooner or later one person will suggest something along the lines of "gee, maybe she's a bodybuilder, that's why she's so beefed up!". People will like it because it's actually something they could see happening.

Of course if it was an offical source then I just wasted my time typing that :lol:

"HOW FEMBOT NOT THIN AND CURVED?! I AM SCARED AND CONFUSED!! GOTTA COMPLAIN"

I am super into that new design though, that's one of the new designs I'm really falling for. I'm really looking forward to that character in particular, and the more that I look at it the more I'm into the art style. Hopefully the writing will be Prime or Animated level too, and I'll be set.

I think, expressed in a bad way, he doesn't like the idea of bee in a leadership position (despite the situation being set up in Predacons Rising). Don't see what wrong with it myself, I'm willing to give anything a chance.

Well, thanks for understanding what I meant. My point is that how is it logical that we have Bumblebee as a scout for at least a thousand years (WFC/FOC/TFP), then we have him become a leader within what, 3 years? Does that make ANY sense to anyone here?

And yet, Optimus was a data clerk for most of his uncountable years of of pre-war existence, and then became Prime after just one meeting with the High Council. Simple librarian one day, supreme military commander and political envoy the next.

At least in Bumblebee's case, Otpimus abolished the Prime rank and opened up the opportunity for multiple leaders at the same time.

And from the sound of things, Bee more than likely isn't gonna be the sole master of all Autobots, but instead just the leader of his own ragtag five-bot unit consisting of just himself, Sideswipe, Fixit, Strongarm, and the still-unnamed green Dinobot.

In other words, he'll be less Optimus Prime and more Optimus Primal/TFA Optimus Prime in rank.

Thank god. I was worried that my precious continuity would be destroyed.

So you missed Transformers: Exodus (same author as the last and that was terrible, so this one has to be too), Transformers: Exiles, (probably also Transformers: Retribution, it's gotta be sh*t since it's the sequel to the last two mentioned), and more recently The Covenant of Primus?

Got bad news for ya, those four books have utterly ruined the Aligned continuity long before this show was announced. The trailer they showed, despite its crappy animation was a much more pleasant experience than any of those.

Lies. Retribution was vastly superior to its predecessors, having almost no errors and being much better written and easier to read. And unlike its predecessors, its story knew when it could do something do something "just for fun" without trying too hard (or even much at all) to be "impressive".

As much as I loved WFC/FOC and Prime,I'm hoping this show is a little more lighthearted then the others. We need some laughs and fun following the dark path they have taken.Even for just a season. Don't get me wrong,we all know how much I love the Movieverse and the destruction,but finding something to watch and have fun with my son that's not Spongebob stupid will be a relief.. :HEADHURTS:

No it isn't. It's a better show that Prime was, at least.

You don't need warfare to be entertained. It's an animated sitcom with action thrown into the mix.

Lol, well maybe this one when it airs will be right up his street. Or you could try animated, that was a fantastic show.

Dalekslayer@ You do realise that this new show may be a mix of Prime and Rescue Bots in tone don't you?

For me though, rescue Bots represented something different. The first time that a cartoon that didn't focus on the civil war, or fighting. We can have any story we could want set in their world, horror, political, adventure, sport etc.

It's also the only English-language TF cartoon where the bad guys actually get away with some genuine wins by the ends of episodes on frequent occasions, and not as part of multi-part cliffhanger endings. 8)

With the restructuring of the Hub, it was unsure where Transformers: Robots in Disguise would land. An article from Variety states that Robots in Disguise would be moving to Cartoon Network. Though the article was removed, there are still traces of it online. Its summary can be found by a simple google search.

What would that do? Barely any kids are able to watch TV during the day (school...). That would be just as bad.
Of course moving the show to Cartoon Network was a foolish choice and they're going to pay for it.

It may end up on Cartoon Network, But with the recent news that
DISNEY has just signed a deal with HASBRO to produce its new MARVEL
Toys and has renewed a deal also with HASBRO to continue making Star Wars
toys... Transformers series may now be shown on DISNEY XD instead of Cartoon Network... The Mouse House has been interested in buying HASBRO in the past anyway, so it might make sense to keep any new TF title on a Disney owned network.
