Courtesy of online media publication Entertainment Weekly over on their website we have the first actual trailer - though not footage - of the upcoming Transformers Cyberverse animated series, due to air on Cartoon Network this coming Monday, then every Friday after that!

Check out the full trailer, featuring some of the San Diego flashback /memories sequence, some of the characters, including super well spoken Grimlock, and more - and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!



The designs for Decepticons Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream, and heroic Autobots Bumblebee and Optimus Prime are direct homages to the after school cartoons that started airing in 1984.

“When we were designing the look and feel of Transformers: Cyberverse, we were inspired by the classic clean appearance of the original G1-style,” Tom Warner, Senior VP for the Transformers franchise at Hasbro, which is producing the series. “This was the design we initially fell in love with in the ‘80s and it felt like the perfect fit for this new origin story.”

[...]

The show features Jeremy Levy as the voice of Bumblebee, and Jake Tillman as Optimus Prime. Ryan Andes voices the dinobot Grimlock, while Sophia Isabella is Windblade, who is helping Bumblebee unlock his damaged memory bank.

On the side of the bad guys, Marc Thopson voices megalomaniacal Megatron, Billy Bob Thompson is the duplicitous jet Starscream, Andes pulls double-duty as cyclopian Shockwave, and Deanna McGovern is Shadowstriker.

Fans seeking an early preview can catch Episode 1 on the CN app starting Monday, with new episodes every Friday.

I actually agree, It probably won't be the greatest show in there, but it might be fun.

That looks like it will be a lot of fun. Like in between Transformers Prime and Robots In Disguise (the recent one). I hope it can come to Netflix or Hulu.

Ick. Doesn't look very good. Has a very cheap and stiff look to it.

Also is Grimlock 'smart' in this one?

Did you ever think for a second that this is bumblebees memeory and he's remebering wrong and it’s a gag?

If not Grimlock can be smart. He’s smarter in more fiction than dumb. People don’t seem to realize that.

Your tone seems a bit off. It was just a question. I get that Grimlock was even said to be smart in G1 but just played dumb (at least in the comics and it's why i used quotation marks around the word smart). I was just a bit surprised hearing that kind of voice coming out of him. I'll stay out of this topic if folk gonna be snippy. Gotta go out anyways.

Still not a fan of the animation style. I'm not sure why animation producers since roughly 2012 or so seem to think it's OK for everything to look terrible and cheaply/shoddily made. Maybe because execs tell them kids will watch no matter what, so no need to spend a lot of money/time/effort on it? It's a shame because beautiful looking shows like TF Prime will only be a thing of the past, or get used as bait to launch Streaming Services you have to pay extra for (Young Justice and Clone Wars for example).

Honestly, I was never able to get used to the look of TFA. It is much better as a radio show IMHO. Maybe that's how I'll have to take in this new version as well.

Man, this series is looking more and more promising with each clip.
Also, pretty sure they just revealed both Arcee and Chromia! Whether they'll make it out of flashbacks and into the land of chracters-with-actual-lines is yet to be seen, but here's hoping...

That was really fun and cool! Kinda started off on a rougher note, but this actually looks pretty fun!

This is legitimately the worst voice acting I have ever seen in a Transformers series. Even the dubbed Unicron Trilogy dubs, at least you could tell they were TRYING.

Every single actor in this trailer is phoning it in. It's honestly kind of infuriating how much these people clearly don't give a shit about a job they're being paid to do. This is a good study on how NOT to voice act

Thank you for you excellent input. I strongly disagree with... pretty much everything written here and state so now. It's a new voice team, a new cartoon, and a new set up seeing as how only the Machinima stuff was 11 minute episodes. And that was an atrocity on the lines of Energon.

I hope this ends up more like Animated, I really do. I enjoyed it and I hope others reading this but don't comment agree

you know im kind of looking forward to this fresh start with a new voice team and hope its everybit as fun to watch as it appears to be and bring in new characters from time to time
dont get me wrong Peter Cullen will always be Optimus Prime and Frank Welker will always be Megatron to me, but they had their day and they are sounding like they are showing their age
so on with the show

Grimlock being smart and eloquent in robot mode while brutish and dumb in dino mode is pretty much how SG Grimlock was from "Dungeons & Dinobots" onward.

I really didn’t like the look of things from that clip we saw, but I actually kinda liked this trailer. Not anything super cool, but I think this show could have some fun moments.

Looks like there might be some good action and story at least. I'll give it the ol college try. But if it stinks after the first 5 eps I won't watch the rest.

LOVE IT. Hope it lasts long and Evolve.

Animation style is Awesome as well. Twas a HUGE fan of TF Prime and its clean yet gritty style. But have no qualms at all with this one. Remember TF Animated? Quite meh at 1st that turned out crazy awesome after.
Remember all man-child sirs (Self included), this Is a Show geared towards kids 1ST. Adults always second (Or last perhaps..lol).
Thats been Hasbro's MO ever since its founding.

Looking forward to this series ;).

I feel sorta better about the show after the trailer, makes me believe that those first two clips weren't representive of the show

"Meh at first"? That Starscream fight in the pilot movie/3rd episode alone was amazing.
