It will air on a new cable network called The Hub, which I don't know if I have LOL... It's a Discovery/Hasbro co-owned channel

@EganTheVile1: the design look odd, it's like the smoothed out bay's transformer

@cfatalis:  Yeah this definately took some inspiration from the live action movies 
 
I wonder if Cliffjumper will ever call Megatron a candy-ass or ask Arcee if she likes pie or stroodle LOL

@EganTheVile1: Ha candy ass
 
i would have to see how they manage to act out the character first anyway
i wonder if that rodimus bastard would appear again

@cfatalis:  Rodimus always does seem to pop up, even in the last series TF Animated, but highly doubt he will replace Optimus this time around. 
Well at least they look good though, would not call smoothing out the Bay look a bad thing, since that should have been done in the live action movies anyway. Though gotta say it WTF is up with Cliffjumper having devil horns?

@EganTheVile1: ah shit, probably to provide more distraction
i do like quite somebit of bay's intricate mechanery design, it provide fresh look on the mecha, showing their innards, without looking to gritty,and "realistic" (like some mechwarrior fans argue with me,on the realistic(!) design of the mechwarrior compared to eastern mecha) 
it does look okay, not very much design orgasm but well good.
 
i guess because he is voiced by the Rock? so he would look "HARDCORE"?

@cfatalis:  
True, though making Cliffjumper look more bad-ass would probably be unnecessary if he is anything like the G1 version who pulled out massive guns bigger then he was out of nowhere... 
Starscream's voiced by the same actor who voiced Spike in Cowboy Bebop (english) so that may work well, the actress playing Arcee in this is mainly known for live action films, but she is very talented so no complaints there, and Breakdown is voiced by yet another random member of the Baldwin brood...

I'll put it as simple as i can.
  • The movie versions are in the series now
  • The chins are also staying
  • This is a mix of the two and it makes me cringe!! 
This blows i'm not even going to consider watching it.

We have a release date! 
11/26 will mark the series first episode on The Hub, I'm sure a Black Friday release date for the series has absolutely nothing to do with pimping the action figures right? :)

I really don't like the way they are design.
