Wish they could show more episodes from other series, but I guess it would be confusing/frustrating for kids who wouldn't get to watch the whole show.

They only have episodes from G1, Prime, and Rescue Bots because those are the only three TF shows that air on Hub Network.

Animated did air on the channel previously, but not anymore.

Did you watch the whole marathon of everything from 11am to 7:30pm?

Honest question, as I didn't get to watch any of it.

I watched the last episode of Rescue Bots of the marathon, and the entirety of The Transformers: The Movie and Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters "Predacons Rising". That's probably the issue.

Then again, everybody's asking about what happened to the preview on Facebook and other fansites. So... what the crap? :???:

I recognize that art style. That's the same look as Di-Gata Defenders, Speed Racer: The Next Generation, Spider-Man: The New Animated Series, Iron Man: Armored Adventures, etc.

It's after Prime and Beast Hunters, but not immediately so.

Ah good, now lets see what kind of leader they have bumblebees become. Plus I hope the preds are still around. Having a third faction in the mix could spice things up nicely.

After watching a sneak peek at the brand-new Transformers: Robot In Disguise cartoon for 2015, I've notice a large, blue Autobot who is named Strongarm and it's a female and a male in previous incarnations. Based on the name and its appearance, it looks like Strongarm's robot mode is based upon a female bodybuilder. What do you guys think? Also, is she going to be a spiritual successor to Arcee? Is Arcee ever going to be shown in the cartoon as well along with Strongarm, just like she did with Transformers: Prime? :BOT:

I don't like what I see.

This preview looks exactly like the show TF Prime promised it would be with it's previews and descriptions, turns out they weren't lying, just giving us something better beforehand.

I'll give it a chance, but I don't think I'll like it.

And before anyone brings up the initial negative reaction to Animated and Prime:
Both shows had terrible promo material as far as character art, bios, interviews, and show descriptions, the teams behind those actively lied to us and made the shows look different from what they would be. Then we got the first actual clips from the actual show and we were blown away because we realized we've been had.
But this looks terrible after all the interesting promos.

I really, really don't like the animation in this, it's not as smooth as either Animated or Prime, plus it looks cheap and tacky. The character designs are kinda nice, but damn we're back to the crappy Transformation stock footage shtick?

Man, I dunno about this series...I really liked Prime, but the transition of the art style is really jarring here. I get that the mood is probably gonna shift from the darker Prime to a more lighthearted series but still, something about Prime's art style doesn't feel right transitioned over to 2D...though I don't even know if this IS 2D, it looks so odd. I could get into both Animated and Prime's more stylized art but this...I'm not sure. I'll reserve judgement until I see more previews and such...

It's not 2D. It's cel-shaded CGI.

Think cartoon animation like Spider-Man: The New Animated Series, Dragon Booster, Di-Gata Defenders, Speed Racer: The Next Generation, Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Tron: Uprising, etc.

After watching the trailer for the new Transformers: Robot In Disguise cartoon series for 2015, I have notice that a blue and white Autobot who transforms into a police pickup believed to be the Elite Guard cadet. Its appearance is believed to be based on a female bodybuilder due to the name, Strongarm, :BOT: that is given. Whether or not this is case, a lot of people have suggested that Strongarm will be the spiritual successor to Arcee in Transformers: Prime. Does that means that we won't be seeing Arcee in Robots In Diguise, or will she show up along with Strongarm?

After viewing the Underbite toy from the 2014 SDCC, he transforms into a futuristic vehicle that is described as a hybrid of a Formula One car and a tank of sorts. Because he is a Dinobot, his beast mode is in fact a dinosaur. Unfortunately, for him, he does not have a robot mode. According to ToyArk.com, the Dinobot that will be part of Bumbleebee's team will be Grimlock, which is actually a Underbite repaint, only green instead of purple. As reported earlier, the Dinobots will show up in the 2015 cartoon. Because of the forms that Underbite and Grimlock took, does that mean that the Dinobots will all have vehicle modes, but abandon their robot modes, or these features are only reserved for Underbite and Grimlock? :CON:

I say let Megatron enjoy his retirement. Time for some fresh blood in the decpticon leadership. Maybe they'll use Galvatron as well.

It makes no sense for Grimlock to share a mold with Underbite since in the TF:Prime continuity Grimlock has a robot mode and doesn't have a vehicle mode. Nor does it make sense for Grimlock to be part of Bee's team instead of Underbite.

And why are people assuming that Strongarm is female? Certainly doesn't look female.

We are not assuming. We were told she is a female at SDCC, and she plainly has lipstick lips on her face in the preview video.

Lipstick on his face eh? :P talk about mixed messages :lol: plus strongarm has been said to be a female bodybuilder, hence the not usual fembot look.

The last outing Transformers had with Cel Shaded CGI didn't go so well, though once again I withhold judgement. I'm cautiously optimistic about this series. Hope it doesn't come back to bite me.

The differences this time is that it's western animation rather than anime. And, this time, it looks to be all cel-shaded CGI rather than half cel-shaded CGI/half 2D.

The only real issue people took with the animation of Transformers Go! was its lack of facial expressions for the robot characters.

I was referring to Energon but yeah. I dunno maybe It'll be like TFA; it looks weird at first but I'll end up growing to love it.

Cybertron was cel-shaded CGI too. Just lightyears better than Energon's.

All depends on the writing quality, as this is the same team who gave us Prime and Rescue Bots, and both of them were/are of a particularly high caliber. ;)
