The clip shows Windblade talking to Bumblebee, asking about his memory. The yellow bot cannot remember anything other than being able to do doughnuts. It's worth pointing out that apparently at this point, he can only talk through his radio, like in previous incarnations of the character, most notably his live action movie counterpart. With Windblade getting no further answers out of bee, Thundercracker attacks and looks to over power Windblade till Bumblebee steps in...

Tom: "So why don't they use the ray gun?"
Joel: "Well because back then even the bad guys had a sense of fair play, Tom Servo."

Might as well wait for the afterlife or whatever for a chance to have a perfect Transformers show.

giggling my brains out at "Screamed hams"
It looks light hearted.
I still, love TF Prime being dark and gritty. I really miss TFprime.

Thundercracker's grunts though, eh, let him talk! Give my favorite seeker some lines!

What do you mean 'this is an actual cartoon meant to market Transformers to a new generation of kids and carry on the legacies of animated, prime, etc.'?

So, this isnt the worst thing I've ever seen.
I appreciate the designs and the general aesthetic they're going for with the robots, and I like the sort of cell shaded CG visual mixture. It's done WAY better here than it was in Rid.
The combat and animation could use some time to develop but the choreography isnt terrible. I especially like the use of dynamic angles and the fact that you can actually see the hits connecting. There are a few flashy coverups for punches and kicks here, but for the most part it's just a fight animated between two giant killer robots.
I also like the little creative touches, like the retractable wings, as others have mentioned.
I like the expressive faces, although they weirdly kinda remind me of that old movie, Robots...not sure why.
Now, for the things I didn't like.
uuuugh...the dialogue. So, Windblade is the only character who really speaks. She's like a teacher or a mother scolding an annoying child, and that's because Bumblebee IS an annoying child here. I thought we were over the whole radio bit, but I guess not....And it's not even really convincing either. It's just Wreck-Gar but less funny. As for Windblade, her lines seem underdelivered, like she isnt trying. Almost like these were her first takes or something. She's just sort of a generic tough girl character, and considering they basically showed her getting her aft kicked, that's not saying a lot.
As for the seeker...no lines. Generic grunts, and that's it.
Also something to note, he had the perfect chance to kill Windblade but instead went after bumblebee. It would have been much more decepticon-like had he tried to take that chance to kill her whle she was down. They could have had Bumblebee save her somehow, making him show a bit of initiative instead of just being annoying and winning via perceived deus ex machina.
All in all im not exactly excited for this. I'll keep an eye on it in case it gets better, but I'm not gonna hold my breath. If children latch onto it, good for them, but all I personally see here is some potential that can very easily be squandered, and if I'm being completely honest, probably will be.
