Oh boy, my favourite.
Sounds like a lot of modern anime to me. :P

Touche. :lol:

Still, kinda disappointing. I was hoping this would be 2D-animated. I mean I'm obviously not expecting like Do You Remember Love levels of animation (as awesome as that would be) but "properly" animated Transformers again would be great.
Tis what happens when you hire a video game company to do a cartoon series. :-P

They did not cell shade Gods & Monsters, but still...Yeah I would have loved to see a 2D animated series again, but still, this looks pretty good, way better than RiD15.

That movie's Chronicles series aired on Machinima but was developed by DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, and Blue Ribbon Content. Machinima was just the distributor.

Nor did Machinima work on the movie itself at all.

I think that's Windblade as Menasor attempts to grab her King Kong style.

Could be a different character, could be off-color for nighttime effect?

Neither has the rest of the fandom. That's why it said "new character" in the description.

Oooh, this is looking really nice.
Also, hi not-so-subtle excuse for Hasbro to do a Windblade retool. Can't wait for the platinum set

So many negative comments ... yet these stills look awesome! That shot of Windblade and Starscream are fantastic. This looks just how I was hoping the art style would look. It looks fantastic. Kudos to Machinima and Hasbro. I'm looking forward to seeing more ... and hopefully getting some toys of characters who have a new like such as Starscream. Can't wait!

Agreed I really like how it looks plus it reminds me of asura's wrath for some reason probably the fact it looks somewhat like an combination of anime, and CGI
