I like the show from what ive seen so far however i cant really say i like the character line up, if this show is based on war for cybertron or that exodus book, you would think they'd focus on more of the characters prominent in their tie ins as opposed to some of their characters like bulkhead was never in the tie ins and at most characters like arcee and cliffjumper had a very minor role in the game or book(cliffjumper wasn't even in the console versions of the game) anyways i hope it may be explained or we get to see the other characters in wfc like ironhide and jetfire or jazz who, according to the exodus novel, was prime's best friend, be featured in later seasons but only time will tell

I have no idea why but....I really hate the Raf Esquivel character, he just seems like he'll be annoying.
Which is a rather stupid assumption considering I've never seen the show...

Eh oh well, it looks ok so far.

I really REALLY hope this is not a tie in to War for Cybertron. The change in the characters is just too drastic. It would be similar to the original Megatron becoming Galvatron. And as far as I know at least Megatron is not an earth vehicle, so why the sudden drastic redesign? If this is worked into the new official cannon I'm gonna go nuts. It's bad enough with IDW Transformers looking different every freakin' time I pick up an issue. And I'll reserve true judgment until I watch Prime, but War for Cybertron visually is ten levels above this in every way, and not just graphically but in overall atmosphere and tone. So I really hope the two VERY different versions of Transformers aren't smashed together half-assed.

Has this video been mirrored anywhere yet? The website refuses to let me watch the video "from my location"

^ News post with new clip.

Hopefully if Hasbro makes toys they'll do like they're doing with GI Joe and make them in traditional style.


I'm really not "up to date" on my GIJoe toys/Cartoon combos... is the new GIJoe toon drastically stylized? I mean, the newest Toys I have seen at the comic shop look solidly normal and cool.

Another bland, lifeless and relatively cheap CGI show. What a surprise... :roll:

I will hazard a guess most of the scenes will be in open sparse environments with not a lot going on besides the actual characters.

So not impressed with the quality of the graphics for this show. It looks like somewhat generic computer game animation, and nothing more. I'll wait to see a few episodes to pass final judgment and all, and I'm sure the story will most assuredly be great. But right off the bat, I'm not very impressed. :(

Wow, that's some garbage 3D. Also, how often has running straight at the two guys shooting at you ever worked out?

The toys out now aren't based off the new show. The new GI Joe cartoon will be called Renegades and look similar to TFA, so yeah it's highly stylized. Although Hasbro's confirmed the Renegades toys won't look stylized like the show.

So that's kind of what I hope happens with Prime. Arcee for example might make a interesting toy in Classics/G1 style.

I don't think they looks that highly stylized

Of course I don't much like Naruto, but I still think there's a pretty unique style there.

All the charachters are very streamlined, faces are kind of square, squinty eyes... It's on the level of Transformers Prime anyways.

All of those designs, save for Baroness and Destro, look really uninspired to me. ESPECIALLY the Joes, they've totally stripped most of them of personality in their outfits, IMO. Snake-Eyes, sadly, as I am getting older is getting less cool to me...

Haven't seen the clip from USAToday as i live in the UK, but what i have seen of this is it is gash!!!
Also thought this was a 5 year plan or something silly, yet they say in the clip i watched a '5 part mini-series'!!!!!!!
So guessing if this bombs brush it aside, next project?

Why no toyline? Did Hasbro not say at one point that the TV shows are just ads for toys!!!!!!!!



Still waiting on that 3 season TFA Boxset... Hasbro!

It looks a LOT like Beast Machines. I hope they don't mess it up like the latter. Even the thought is scary.

Starscream's design screams female to me. It looks like they went for a more Loki-esque feel than Starscream. Close to the same character but very different in some ways.

Sadly, no toyline. Probably because the robot modes were to intricate to transform into vehicles. :-(

After the way they managed to make toys out of the even more fiddly movie robot modes, I highly doubt that that is the reason.
