Good to hear that there will be Starscream in it and that he will have a more G1-ish personality, but he could have said more on the issue, or there could have been a follow-up question. Well I suppose there could have been but Orci just kept tight-lipped.

What I want to know is if the designs are Classics (the toyline) like so we can get some more Classics/Universe/Generations toys!

A classics-esque show supporting the Classics-esque toyline would be heaven to me...and hell to my wallet!

I totally agree! Does anyone know what the characters might look like? This will be epic if it is like G1... I am very pleased with all the info, but some details on drawings would be great!

I am so excited.... :BOOM:

Cool....recently I've been watching G1(courtesy of Netflix) and well, everytime Megatron so much as trips "StarScream's the new leader!" and I like that 8)

Anyhow, since Prime's supposed to be movie verse, I hope it's toys fit in with the movie-verse...

And the scheming, backstabbing ass in Animated *WASN'T* a classic characterization of Starscream?

Still, this just keeps getting better and better.

Not trying to be too negative, but if I want to watch G1 all over again I can watch the DVDs. I wanna see something original.

Awww, that's silly. At least have a GOOD charactrisation (IE: Animated) to base it on. I HATE whiners, especially when they're giant jet robots with voices that sound like their testicles are in vices.
