From the Second Quarter investor conference with Hasbro, which took place in the past couple of days, we have some news regarding the Transformers Cyberverse animated series and its broadcasting future: according to the remarks transcript on the Hasbro page, it is confirmed to be airing this fall on Cartoon Network, following the steps of Robots in Disguise and its later Combiner Force incarnation!

What do you make of this news? To flesh out the conversation, make sure to also check out a clip from an episode of season 1, shown at the San Diego Comic Con panel (starts at 20:40 minute mark)!

We continue to execute our multi-screen content strategy for TRANSFORMERS, with new product innovations supporting each of our unique stories. In addition to our feature film TRANSFORMERS BUMBLEBEE coming in December, we have a new kid-targeted animated series, Transformers Cyberverse, this Fall airing on Cartoon Network.

We also continue with our fan-targeted Power of the Primes series and preschool targeted Rescue Bots series with all new content and product innovation. Our animation studio is producing both the
TRANSFORMERS CYBERVERSE and RESCUE BOTS series.

Thanks to fellow Seibertron user Surivivefan23, we've been informed that a new clip from the Transformers Cyberverse Animated series has been placed on YouTube, courtesy of YouTube user Angelina Pax.

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...

Check out the clip below!

I believe the internet word for this is 'cringe'.

This fight reminds me of an MST3K riff:

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."

Just another typical Children's cartoon in this day and age.

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.

I'm really hoping that Bee talking through his radio is temporary. The character model is so dynamic and expressive, it's an absolute waste to prevent him from speaking.

Wow, I am slightly surprised by the negativity in the comments. Everyone's entitled to an opinion, but in mine, this looks promise. The hand on hand action is pretty good, albeit a bit choppy, and the voice acting is good as well. The animation is... well, it may grow on me. And the lack of using the ranged weaponry when it is obviously there... well, context is everything. But the story seems promising. Keeping my mind open.

I was actually really entertained by Bee's radio talk and expressions to go with them. That was entertaining!

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

Sweet, a free app game with all my favorite characters! Can't wait to play as G1 Wreck-Gar, Ayy Lmao, and Steve the Vehicon! :-D

...


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.'?

Yeah, that's Wreck-Gar, not Bumblebee. But, you know, I'm sort of resigned to that. The actual animation is rather vacant and bland, but I dig it's to save money. What bothers me, however, is the lack of Decepticon banter. There's no smack talk. No back and forth. Just Windblade (who is playing the straight bot part, so not really showing any personality) and Bumblebee. You can cheapen out on a lot of things, but if you cheapen out on dialogue... I have no interest.

I am actually really liking the retractable wings on the Seekers - reminds me of my cosplay this summer at TFcon in toronto. The more I see that, the more I like it.

Whelp. so much for the hope I had for this. The curse of Bay's talkless Bumblebee continues and I'm just not feeling this animation style. How can the drawn art look so much better than what they're actually going with?

Okay, I think I will hate the characters, but I'm loving this new art style.

Okay.

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.
