I think it still had room to increase in epicness. The next season would more than likely have had more Cybertron-based action, and there was plenty of room to introduce city-formers (as actual characters) or combiners or other lead villains like Galvatron or Scorponok.

Agreed! Hopefully it's something new or something to support the Universe line maybe. But I would put my money on movie-verse unfortunately.

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I'd be ok with a movie-verse cartoon, as long as the stories and characters are done well, like the quality of animated. I actually like the movie-verse, although that was another one that the character designs took awhile for me to get used to.

Movie-verse cartoon seems to be a case of "It works or not". Either its awesome, or it suck techno-organic monkey balls (but thats insulting to an underrated and not so bad but weird cartoon).

I just hope it has LESS human.

What I'd like to see would be a TV special of the Beast Wars/Movieverse crossover that happened a while back.

I think it would be hilarious to see Dinobot riding in the driver's seat of Ironhide with one arm on the wheel and one arm out the window swinging his sword.

I got 2 more episodes to watch of TFA tivo'd. Didnt think they would be the last episodes they ever made..... thats disappointing. Some one mentioned earlier how the show was like Teen Titans in its tone and quality and I agree. Teen Titans was a favorite cartoon of mine and TFA hit me in the same spot.

Yeah, they need to keep that stuff in mind; not everyone (kids or adults) can be up at 5 to watch the toons. And they've been doing that since at least Energon I think (which is why I don't see more).

And I"m certainly not ashamed to admit I wanted to see more of Perceptor and Wheeljack.

I also wanted to see that arse wad Sential Prime get his afts handed to him. And Magnus? Will be just be some cyber vege?

But yeah, if it leads onto another series, then, well, okay then.

I wouldn't complain if this didn't spin into another series (like what ended up being the Unicron Trilogy), but but I wouldn't mind picking up figures Arcee and Sentinal Prime (if I manage to spot him again).

I could totally dig this.

He's got some pretty far-out powers to go along with them, too, including teleportation, the projection of trippy telepathic visions and illusions, and the ability to groove on the language of 98% of all known species. To uses his powers to the fullest, though, he's gotta be feelin' good vibrations; bad karma can seriously harsh his mellow, y'know?

Well hopefully if IDW can pull it off we'll have new comics to follow-up on things. Please if you did enjoy the show and wanted more, support the comics if they come out.

I very much doubt that we'll see anymore "Animated" episodes but there still a bit more life in this line as long as people still support it.

Provided of course it leads to a series with a better style of animation, and hell, a more serious attitude.



Did you actually watch the show, or were you on of the many who decided to hate it based on it's look? The vast majority of TF: Animated's content was incredibly serious. Sure, the few episodes that dealt with human villains were a bit goofy, but they were few and far between. The story telling is very much on par with Beast Wars/Machines. Both Ratchet and Prowl's troubled pasts were quit often highlighted through the series. And with Ratchet, we got to see him severely beat down Lockdown for revenge because of what he did to him and Arcee during the war. I know I haven't seen anything along those lines since Beast Wars. Give it a chance, you'll be surprised.


I couldn't agree more. I thought it looked dumb until a coworkeR convinced me it was a high-quality show. The story arc of many of the characters were written superbly. Particularly Prowl, Ratchet and Prime. Black Arachnia, Lockdown and Lugnut were great new characters. There was some kiddy stuff in there, but I found most of the humor hit its mark. Some of the G1 homages were terrific, like Soundwave's boombox form. Shockwave really kicked ass and Ultra Magnus was brilliantly done.

I have to tip my hat to Hasbro and CN. Too bad they pulled the rug out from beneath us.

To all you troll who think it sucked, SHUT UP! Go back to your corner WHINING on how it was NOT like G1 because thats all you can do! Yes Animated looked really weird and childish, but I guess it was the point. It was strange but I got over it and enjoyed the show.

Let us remember each Transformers cartoon for their quality and what they brought to the franchise. I could even go on about RID and the Unicron Trilogy, shows I despise and think they are horrible. Yet im sure they left their mark on the franchise.

Animated was designed to be childish, but was it really? I ask you people. To me, a show is childish if it treat its viewers likr morons, if it has no plot, no storyline.

G1 was nothing but repetitive storyline. The character had no depth (sorry to say this, but G1 Optimus Prime was rather dull). They added character when they feeled like it, or rather when hasbro needed to advertise a new line like the Dinobots. Generally, they just came out of nowhere or something. Im not saying this was always the case, but most of the time the addition of new character was poorly done.

The plot repeated itself all the freakin time! Megatron ALWAYS retreated, Starscream ALWAYS attempted to overthrow him and so on. I don't think that doing the same thing each episode make a good villain. On a final verdict, G1 Megatron was boring.

I know this is a somewhat incoherent rant, and I apologise. All this is something that need to come out. I know some will scream "ANIMATED FANBOI" but I disagree. Fan, yes! Fanboy, no! A fanboy can't see the flaws of the thing he like. I see the flaws in Animated.

I think Animated was a rather dark show at times. Pick ANY episode with Ratchet and his war flashbacks. It wasn't childish. It was a well written show HIDING behind a childish appearance. It had a plot that made sense even if it was about giant transforming alien robots. The character had personnality, something that was rare (but NOT unheard of) in G1. We can see a really goo deal character development.

All im saying was: Animated was TV Show, not JUST a 30-minute toy commercial.

I ask you all, and answer me honestly: G1 and Animated, which one was the most chidlish?



I salute you for telling the truth.



WRONG! Not Truth, vociferous proclaiming of ones OPINION, same as I have been doing with my pissed off rants against Hasbro.

As for comparing G1 and Animated, that's a fools errand. EVERYTHING with that much of a span of time inbetween is going to be so different in just about every aspect that comparison is near impossible. What I can say about animated is that the animation style and the subject level were not the same. I was very surprised at how deep some of the subject and dialogue of TFA was. The human villians were the points where it dropped sharply as was previously stated along with a few of the standard episodes, but the majority were well done. I was skeptical but agreed to start watching with my kids and I warmed up to it fast.
What I can't understand however, is how all of the folks who did enjoy the show are reacting. I liked it a lot but the shows over. They aren't stopping production of TF toys so therefore we are going to get another cartoon at some point. It's just that black and white. It's a freaking t.v. show and if folks are that upset about it then you need to stop and re-evaluate your value system. It's 30 minutes of sitting on your ass and not thinking and that's not worth lamenting, just like all of my issues with Hasbro, which have fallen on deaf ears anyway, aren't worth voicing anymore. In the comsic scheme of things, bigger stuff is more deserving of our energy.
