Holy mother! I hope Starscream suprises me in the first episode as much as he did in Animated when he turned out to be ruthless! That is when I began to love Animated. The artwork looks like if Animated was transwarped to the movieverse's multiverse.

Cliff looks pretty demonic there, but he's seriously lacking big guns. I'm talking 1992 Cable style 3 times as big as he is guns. Give the little guy a break Cybertron Rifle Association!

Oh just wait....they upgraded him from midget to Ahnold!!! The guns will come soon, then the over masculined Cliffjumper will truly be born!!! Seriously though, I like that they turned him into one of the bigger bots instead of the smaller ones.

Hrm... How can they refer to it as a "hit" when it hasn't even debuted yet? A bit premature and self aggrandizing. Let's see... if the graphic novel isn't out yet, and the text was pre-written for release after the series began to air...

:shock: IDW employs time travelers whose specific jobs it is to go forward in time, take Neilson ratings from Hasbro programs, then travel back so that their partners can write accurate boasts ahead of time! Genius!

Starscream looks really cool here. I am actually really digging this book. I might have to check it out. The art looks kinda boss.

Wow... if that's Starscream up there, which it really looks like it is, I think I'm going to love this series.

Ah, I'm so excited now! Between this and the badass Ratchet design, this show at least looks cool!

I think I might like this...

I wonder who the big guy is standing behind Ratchet in the Starscream pic? It's hard to make out but could it be a new Ironhide? He's big and burly whoever he is...

Am I the only one who looked on the cover, and couldn't decide whether the blue tf was supposed to be TFA Jetstorm or Blurr?

I'm not feeling this, man; Cliffjumper looks like the Stay Puft Marshmellow Man with a helmet and armor on, and Arcee is his skinny, little Stay Puft sister. #-o
Starscream looks okay, but man do I ever miss the classic Transformer look.

I do like their new looks, well at least their bodies. But their heads do look way too cartoony. If only they would give them something more G1 in their faces. I like the movieverse look that it being experimented with again here in the latest TF incarnation: Prime.

That's my biggest qualm, their cartoony faces.

Arcee is apparently not the Arcee we all know. She almost reminds me of an Autobot Blackarachnia here just from those snippets. She's cool but this is likely the case with most of the characters. They will be almost totally new personalities along with the new bodies. Let's see how they do.

I like the new look that TF Prime is taking. Though Starscream looks like Dr Nefarious from the Ratchet and Clank games. Which isn't a bad thing at all.

All I can say now is bring on TF Prime.

the transformations are going to be bs and make no sense just like beast machines. look at rc for example. she turns into a bike? dont think so.

i feel sorry for hasbro. they will have to come up with new designs to make toys. because these dont make sense.

How does Arcee transforming into a bike make no sense? Considering the fact that they (TFs) can transform into just about anything, I don't know if BS transformations really exists. Unless you mean she's supposed to be a car, like in G1, which I could understand being upset with, but she has been a bike before. Or do you mean that there's no "I obviously turn into a bike" style robot mode that displays her bike parts more prevalently? Either way, I think BS transformations is a bit of a reach...

I'm actually liking these designs the more I see them. And regardless of the looks and aesthetics of the show, I just pray for a good coherent story and compelling characters. I know, wishful thinking.

Hello I'm new to this thread

Posted by Megatron Wolf on September 7th, 2010 @ 11:36am CDT
The more & more i see of this the less & less interested i become. At this rate the only way hasbro is going to get me to watch this is if theres a really really really good story behind it. But its probably going to be like animated where theres only a good episode every 3rd or 4th show. I have the feeling this show isnt going to last long, not only is there no toy line (you know thats the main selling point for TF cartoons, no toys kids have no real connections to the charaters so they stop caring) plus i think hasbro is just going to frak it up.

tfw2005 posted a few more pics that really gives a better look at Breakdown and Starscream. Breakdown looks boss, very "brute". While its a departure from his smaller stunticon look, I like it. Starscream does not fit with G1 starscream, not much of a homage at all. That said, I think his new look fits the personality of starscream better than any design I've seen so far. I don't like that he is "noseless" but aside from that, he is very sinister looking. I was a fan of animated, and I hope this series is a successful follow up to it. I'm watching the Unicron Trilogy right now and can't believe how awful this show is... It's so annoying to watch, yet I want to finish it for the sake of seeing the whole series.

I have great hope in Prime, and so far, it looks great.

Arcee looks like she wears a thong, and ion that Starscream pic the first thing I noticed was that how Arcee and Cliffjumper are positioned, looks kinda kinky ..... damn I have a dirty mind sometimes :P

This looks amazingly cool, I digging this new show already.

Not sure about the "Deviljumper" look, although it is nice to see a Cliffjumper (the name of my wife's new red car BTW) upgrade. Part of me is really looking forward to the series, I just hope they don't screw it up. Series has plenty of potential and I hope Hasbro releases some toys under the Generations line, at least that killer looking Starscream :KREMZEEK:.

One thing I am noticing that I don't like about their designs, they all have flat faces... I understand maybe they don't need noses to smell or anything, but it adds a bit of dimension if they have some sort of depth on their face. From the front, their crests kind of make a pseudo nose, but they suddenly look funny in any side profile shots...

Aside from that, I am digging this. Pleasssse be as good as animated or better.

I'm watching the Unicron Trilogy right now and trying to figure out why it seems like so many people hated Animated considered it was a breath of fresh air after the sewage that started from Beast Machines until Animated. If only Animated lasted longer, it may have surpassed the awesome that was Beast Wars.

Now in all do fairness, if you took those children and fix alot of the dialogue errors of Armada it would have been a decent show in my opinion. Those children just made me so annoyed....stupid kids!!

For sure, its unfortunate that those kids and the dialogue errors made up 90% of Armada... I really liked the concept behind the mini-cons (kinda why I'm lovin' the power core combiners).

I'd face punch the fat one so hard that my fist would bust through it and break into Carlos killing him and simultaneously impregnate that bossy chick. In all seriousness though, I hope they manage to make the humans in prime somewhat useful and not retarded, much like in animated. I actually liked all those humans, especially fandzone. I'm worried though because it's JUST kids. Dont the kids have parents who worry or school to go to?!

Dude...I laughed so hard at that I almost wet myself!!!! Stupid fat kids. But I agree...I didn't enjoy Animated that much...I didn't hate it by any means...but you're right atleast the humans served a purpose. And as far as those kids parents went....they were terrible parents....sure I'll let my son go off with "aliens" to a far away planet....can anyone say windowless van with free candy spray painted on the sign????
