Well, my expectations just plummeted. I just hope this won't be screwed up, and it will work well.....

As for it being CGI, as much as I loved Cybertron, I'm a little disappointed. I was hoping for 2D, but not in cartoony style like Animated, like in a semi-realistic style like Armada. I wonder though if it will be entirely CGI, or like Cybertron where Earth and humans and such are 2D. I hope it's entirely CGI, but like the clone wars, where it looks more professional. But also, not like the clone wars, where they all turn into caricatures and stuff, but where they look normal but with awesome animation.

CG for a weekly animated show = fail.

The bar has been raised since the days of Beast Wars and Reboot. I have no desire to see a Transformers show that looks like "Back at the Barnyard" or the "Penguins of Madagascar" It is either Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within or Advent Children quality or bust for me.

Is it me or do most CGI works look the same? I'm surprised Space Chimps and Planet 51 are neither Dreamworks nor Disney, nor are they from the same studio as each other either.
Contrast with 2D animation, where you couldn't possibly mistaken something like Flapjack or Teen Titans for SpongeBob cartoon.

Star Trek? Pre-existing material.
Transformers? Pre-existing material.
Fringe? X-Files rip-off (and I like Fringe!)
Hawaii 5-0? Re-make!

So you'll forgive me if I think of them as nothing more than a pair of guys who just like cash being thrown at them to look back at something and re-make it for a modern audience.

That's hardly fair. Nothing is new these days, not just what these guys have done.

CG is the reason I hate Beast Machines, Energon, and Cybertron! Beast Wars wasnt too bad, mostly cuz they were shiney as hell! Damnit, I pray that this is not true! Just know that if it is...I wont watch it. I may watch the first episode, but if that sucks, I guess Ill have to slit then burn my wrists. Im always going on about, if you dont like the new TF movies, then why the hell are you still a fan, but now, I understand!

Well, here's a rational response. :lol:

Seriously Sly, as awful as this news is, don't take it too hard, alright? The reason people who don't like the new movies are still fans of the franchise is because the franchise offers 25 other years of things to be fans of. As lame as the movies have been, they're not bad enough to make me think I have to give up something I've enjoyed for the last 25 years of my life.

On to this cartoon news, I'm going to take the opposite track from Sly here and agree with some of the other opinions.

A) I'm ok with the CG, but I'd prefer the Beast-era Mainframe CG to the Japanese versions we've gotten recently.
B)I liked the last Star Trek film.....
C) These two guys are baffoons. Not only do they tell crap stories that seem like they were written by five year olds pretending to be seven year olds, but they just are not interesting. Boo to this news.

Seriously. They make some super ship- knowing full well planets are gonna get eaten by a supernova. Meanwhile the people on those planets choose not to evacuate.

Spock drives to the sun, and on the way "somehow" the Supernova happens anyway, (early. too fast? Spock too slow?).

Lazy writing like that ruined the entire movie- which makes me sad because all the actors were trying so hard.

Also something to note- stupid giant inflatable hands joke crept in there- which seems to be in keeping with the same dumb humor in Transformers- so it can't all be Bay's fault.

Not promising.

The title also makes me worried that this will be an "extreme" makeover for the TFs, with the word "Prime" just replacing "extreme."

I agree 100% Star Trek 11 was average at best and just lame at worse. It had the worse music score of all the 09 summer movies.

One of the things that I always wanted to see in a Star Trek movie or TV show was when Kirk saw the Enterprise for the very first time in his life. Say what you want about Shatner's acting ablity he did a great job of showing that in the first two Star Trek movies, and when we get there in Star Trek 11 what do we get?
A lame barf joke.
