Animated was looked down upon by pretty much every middle-aged (teen) person, and by tying more things into animated you'd probably be harming it. By the look of the game, it seems much darker. As for the toy line, I think there would be a show, too. But then again, they made toys of almost all decepticones/drones, so...


Not sure I fully understand your post, middle-aged (teen)? The last thing I want to do is turn this into an Animated love/hate debate, but to say almost everyone from any one demographic looked down on it wouldn't be accurate. Seems to me TFA was pretty successful, they are still releasing figures from the line and Japan is about to get the line as well. Not to mention TFA is finally getting us a decent Arcee! If anything I would say the design borrows heavily from WWI, with just a splash of TFA.

I think it makes perfect sense to create a toy line based around the game. If they can make one based off a 2 and a half hour long movie that only had the actual Transformers on screen maybe 75% of the movie (or less), why not one based off of a game? Your average game has around 10 hours of play time in it, and it would have robots on screen at ALL TIMES.

If Hasbro can release a toy for $100 dollars based off a character who had a collective screen time of maybe 10 minutes, I'm pretty sure they can get away with selling a few deluxe/voyager figures from this game. Considering there have been Halo, Legend of Zelda, etc. action figures, I'm pretty sure these would sell just fine.

Hope you're right. I dig the concept, and this would open the door for more "WWI-ish" type figures.

Hmm. I'm slightly more interested after watching the video, but I really didn't like Megatron's design that much. I have very mixed feelings about this being the next toyline.

...back in my day, you had one alt-mode. ONE! Articulation? why, if you had enough articulation to transform, you had plenty. And if you wanted more articulation, you know what you did about it? NOTHING. You transformed, stood there with your faceplate closed, and your optics sharp, just like everybody else who didn't have ball-jointed this, and swivel-jointed that. And when your were told to, you transformed and rolled out! ...And another thing...

It just occured to me that Hasbro could well be continuing the multiple eras theme from U2.0/25th into the next 'Classics' line. An odd Legends figure (still looks roughly Legends sized to me) that ties into a game in amongst a mostly G1 homage line sounds more likely than a whole figure range. Of course I'd still like for the next instalment of 'Classics' to be G1centric but we'll have to see what happens by Botcon/SDCC next year when we start to really see what's ahead.

Before I didn't care about the game, but then I saw the trailer. If this all ties to the new show being made too, I will be dancing in the streets.

At the very least, OP's alt mode from the in-game vidcap looks cool.

Don't know if I'll like the game or the rest of the toyline, but I'll probably at least buy OP.

A counter-example how good CGI can look like: Futurama. A lot of the models used in the show was CG.
