Update - We initially reported that Transformers Go! would be a TV series airing in Japan in 2013, starting in July.
We now have confirmation from the TFYuki Twitter account that this is not the case: Transformers Go! will be a straight to DVD series, supplement to the TV magazine.

We did get a better look at both combiner characters, including the so far teased Decepticon beast-combiner! Image mirrored from /4chan/ below. And thanks to TFYuki, we now know the names of the two combiners: Gokenzan and Gogekisou.

The lack of shoulder pauldrons on the Decepticon gestalt disturbs me.

It looks to me like the cartoon will be very poor and the robots will look way cooler on screen than in toy form.

Is this the 10th. anniversary of Energon or something?

This seems like a step back, honestly. If it does come here, it's kinda switchin' gears in the wrong direction.

i mean... i know what this is... its just like zone, scramble city, headmasters, masterforce, victory, beast wars neo and beast wars second. its just made to advertise and sell these few figures that will not be in the prime line.

Looks like those shitty kids shows on Saturday mornings. Yugioh, monster something, and pokemon. I'm sure it will be a hit with the kiddies but older fans may shy away from this.

i don't like them either but they can't be ****** as they're very popular with kids today (pokemon in particular)

Should a toyline and 'kids' cartoon really be aimed at adults?! if the formula (pokemon style) works with other franchises and sells BIG then why not for transformers too.

Looks like King of Braves meets digimon. While I look forward to all this has to offer. Part of me hopes the Prime characters will appear giving a pseudo season 4. Want the toys big time. Autobots will be my classic headmaster juniors.

So this :APPLAUSE:

Anyway, why are some saying it will be like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Bakugan or even B-Daman and the like (coincidentally, the only kind that gets adapted for the US. Odd...). If anything, I expect it to be like Brave, Eldoran or even Machine Robo Rescue, as I'm not seeing "Gotta collect'em/catch'em all" anywhere. There are more animes than that, people ;)

Forgot to mention. This will probably be like Cybertron. Stock footage spam!

I know this seems strange since Transformers are from Japan but...has anyone ever thought mow much Japanese original characters look nothing like other Transformers? Dai Atlas, Deathsaurus, Star Convoy...and these. They look more like Gundam than transformers. They are too ornate and there are far too many colors. It's not like there are rules for making a transformer but these seem like built machines rather than "living" things. As Gundam they look cool. As Transformers, I'd pass as they look like some closeout-store knockoff.

as for the series: Sigh, more of the same old cliched crap I bet. I really hope they don't import this as a new series like they did with Car Robots.

Wat.

The combiners do not look like transformers... The aesthetics are kinda off... :/

So, no beast hunters for takara? Why are they releasing BH toys under go! then?

Unless... The BH characters are re-animated and are actually in this show. :shock:

As of now, the combiners don't look too great. :/

I loved cybertron!

*Huge ass key flies down from the sky*

*Jumps into the air with blue background.

*A weapon they never knew they had appears!*

All while playing the Cybertron theme. :grin:

Ha, we said essentially the same thing at the same time. Compare these with the Unicron Trilogy designs. I didn't like some of them (guns for fingers and such) but they still looked more like transformers somehow. These just don't. I dunno

I really don't know what to think of this at the moment. I suppose I'm just hoping that they make good Transformers figures out of this.

This is the first Japanese only anime since what, BWII? Of course maybe Hasbro will dub over it and air it on The Hub (dubbed on The Hub) and this'll be the next TF Series that has been teased.
