W-Why would you deprive Megatron of his one endearing quality?

I thought it was already announced that Megatron would be back with the same actor as before?

It depends. If I can get past the fact that it's Will Wheaton, maybe...(he did good as Aqualad in the 2000's Teen Titans series)...but after his many appearances on The Big Bang Theory, its going to be hard not to laugh, unless he plays it completely straight.

That has nothing to do with the plot direction they may take him in.

Jon Bailey was good as Optimus, and of course we all know Peter Cullen IS Optimus...but that alone doesn't mean this show will be any good sadly. Though I'd pay to hear Cullen read the phone book, that alone doesn't guarantee this show will be any good.

Looks like o.supreme's plot prediction may be more dead-on accurate than we were hoping.

I don't know... it looks a tiny bit better. Just a tiny bit. Very tiny. Like World's Smallest Transformers Ravage.

Two things:

1. I assume most of what we'll see is only a couple characters plus the Titans, with not much beyond that.

2. THAT FRICKING FRAME RATE SUCKS. I can see why they said "Don't blink, or you'll miss a very important part of Transformers history", because a whole scene feels like only 5 frames.

From Machinima's official Facebook page, we have news of an upcoming trailer for the fast-approaching Transformers: Titans Return animated series! Following posters featuring the likes of Jason David Frank as Emissary and Nolan North as Metroplex, a behind-the-scenes video and even a preview clip dropped just a day ago, this new teaser promises a full-fledged trailer for the series in just two days' time!

The image simply depicts a stoic Optimus Prime, heavily based on his Generation 1 and Masterpiece design as in the prior Combiners Wars animated series, standing before the stormy wasteland that presents Machinima's vision of Cybertron. With the show set to drop just a week after the trailer itself, the teaser's message could not be more clear: if you're going to get hyped for this show, now is the time.

Machinima's Titans Return series is set to release soon, on the 14th of November. It stars voice talent ranging from series veterans Peter Cullen and Judd Nelson, to other well-known actors like Wil Wheaton, Michael Dorn and Jason David Frank, returning cast members Abby Trott and Jason Marnocha, and even YouTubers MatPat and DashieGames, along with many more. See the teaser for yourself down below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the coming trailer as well as any other updates on the soon-to-be-released series!

Get ready Transformers fans! The trailer for Transformers: Titans Return drops in TWO days.

Wait, is this seriously your first time hearing about this show? Did you miss out on its predecessor show, the eight-episode Combiner Wars?

Oh, you poor naive soul. So completely in the dark about how much of a dreadful schlock this show is gonna be if it's anything like it's predecessor.

And, no, Frank Welker is not in this show. Megatron is voiced by Jason Marnocha and thank goodness for that! Marnocha was the only good thing about the first show, so having him back is the one positive aspect about this dark blot of a show.

And it will have nothing to do with any of the G1 fiction from the 1980s. No ties to the cartoon, the movie, or the Marvel Comics. It's in its own little world of misery and mediocrity.

Yeah, Combiner Wars turned out to be one of the worst Transformers cartoons we've ever gotten, with Megatron, as I mentioned, being the sole enjoyable aspect about it, as he was awesome and hilarious with his being all snarky and sarcastic to everyone.

We've so far been hoping that this sequel show, Titans Return, will be an improvement, but aside from the inclusion of some television actors (albeit, rather bizarrely-chosen ones) and the longer running time, there doesn't seem to be that much about it that looks all that better than the first show.

After all, the first show was advertised as being the "Game of Thrones of animation", and yet it turned out to be as bad as Transformers: Energon. So aside from a return of Jason Marnocha's Megatron, there doesn't look to be all that much to look forward to thus far in the new show.

Wrong.
Jon Bailey did a fantastic Optimus Prime and deserves the recognition.

He's done fantastic Optimus Primes outside of CW. In CW, he was adequate, but his true talent felt held back in restraint from reaching its full entertainment potential.

That one behind-the-scenes video he did about him and the other CW cast members recording their lines at Bang Zoom!, in which he did some fun little ad-libs in his Optimus voice, gave us way more of his talented range and skill than he got to perform in the show itself.
