Ok I actualy feel a lot better about this show now. It is sowing some potential. The lack of detail is probably due to a limited budget, considering it is a NEW show. Not to mention it takes hours to render a minute worth of computer animated objects. :CON: :APPLAUSE:[size=150][/size]

Now that's more like it, a clip with some real meat in it. I'm not as worried about the animation as I was before. It seems to be okay (reminds me a lot of BW). All that remains to be seen is if the writing is good. That's what matters most (TFA is proof of that). Humans still look kinda lame though.

I thought TFA was badly written. It is not like the quality writing you get from the Marvel Production cartoons (X-Men, G.I. JOe, or Transformers).

Ok, that's much better than the last clip. This looks like it has some polish to it.

Looks not bad. Can't really make any assumptions just yet anyway; gota see the actual episodes and decide. Other than that, audio sounds dece, Visuals are def cool, some people complaining about it being crappy, well.... cybertron... armada.... animated.. that was some pretty crappy bot design, all either rigid as hell, or like figures made outa silly putty. Sure primes mouth is kinda lame, but I'd take this over those other shows if the storytelling is good, and the action isn't daft.
One thing they definitely need to get back into these shows though, is showcasing awesome ways the bots transform while doing other things like firing, or jumping or somthing, as well as bringing back the G1 robotic sound distortion in all the bots' voices.

That reminds me... where's the box set for season three of animated. Before buying this thing, I need to finish buying the old one.

did you just say that the writing in the original Gijoe and Transformers was superior to TFA?

that is just silly, as much as I love the original 80s cartoons, the writing was a complete mixed bag, sometimes good, often times awful.

TFA and Beastwars are much better, I can understand your xmen example, that was a very well written show, but the original Gijoe series was unwatchable at times.

I appreciate the asesthetics of this, actually. The best part though, to my estimation, is that Cliffjumper looks to be getting a lot of screen time (and seeing better renders of him makes me want a toy of him).

Wait, you think the original G1 series had good writing?

We should be so lucky to get X-men type writing, if that was the case, Transformers would be elevated to a whole new level of insanely awesome. But yea, the G1 writing was def all over the place like 2 cousins at a redneck banquet.

I'm confused, so Transformers Prime is only 5 episodes long TOTAL?

Or is the opening episode broken down into 5 parts?

Looks pretty cool!

I don't really like all those goofy-ass faces (especially Prime's), but I'm sure I'll get used to it.


...and they're using the G1 "transforming sound"! That's a huge plus in my book.

I kinda agree there. The transforming sound is pretty neat. But something about the actual animation of the transformation looks a little weird. Maybe that's just me though...

IT LOOKS SO STUPID! And I'd be the last one to ever say that somthing Transformers looks stupid. It looks like one of those horrible ass CG shows that I hate. Like that new Ironman. It's just...no, you just don't do it! You had better have some big ass explosions, and those kids NEED to die early on in the show! If they don't, I'll jump through the damn screen and blow their heads off myself!

It's not just you. The transforming seems bland and a little too quick...

You know, after seeing this trailer, Prime's mouth doesn't look that bad. I guess the quality of the previous video was not that good. I liked how Starscream smirked a bit. Would've been nice to have Chris Latta as his voice. And I would've LOVED to see Megatron speaking as well. :BOOM: :BOOM: :BOOM: :lol:

HAHahaha... dude, do it. They always gota stick kids in it, so frustrating. What about a soldier who actually has connections to special military weapons, opening the Transformers to different technology.
Man that Ironman theme song couldn't sound any gayer.

That's exactly what I wanted for a TF cartoon. Soldiers who had connections to the military and the government. Why in the name of ass, of all people would giant transforming robots, whose whole history is war itself, choose to hang out with a bunch of kids? I can understand them with Sari in TFA because she wasn't fully human, but every other kid can just suck my ass.
