TF:Animated clip shown at Comic-Con!

Post by Hot Shot » Sun Jul 29, 2007 1:34 am

Click!

My opinion has changed again(for the millionth time). Despite Prime's lips, Megs' movie appearance, and the little girl with a jet pack, everything looks great! Dinobots! Arcee! Prime's battle axe! I can't wait!

Also, click here to see the upcoming Classics 2.0 figures!, TF:A figures(some of them look good), and some of the last of the movie figures.

That got me.
Now I can't wait for that series to come out for some reason.
:eek:

Looks good.

That looks fantastic! :D :D :D

I am loving the jazzed-up take on the original theme tune too!

Looks a gazillion times better than Cybertron.

Agreed.

This seems to have so many nods to G1 already - Prime's axe, The Dinobots, Arcee, Starscreams voice and character, the theme tune...I bet there will be many many more.

Other positives are that the voice acting already shows promise (the benefit of not being translated) and the animation looks fluid and full of personality.

Lets hope the stories hold up too.

Kenny makes an excellent Starscream. As good as Latta was, from what I have heard here. :) No wonder the crowd went wild!

OP only has lips in his Cybertronian form, his earth mode has a faceplate. Thank Primus... :)

Megs looks good, G1 colors, has a huge fusion cannon. And we have been told he'll have an earth mode by the end of season 1.

The Nemesis sure is bigger then the ark, no? :eek:

Apparently, Slag, Grimlock and Swoop will be featured as the Dinobots. Has been a while since we had a Slag toy, funny that he transforms exactly like the Classics Minicon Triceratops. Grimlock is G1, but he has an overbite now... weird.

Lockdown, the weird Hot Rod Con... looks a bit like Death's Head, yes? He'll be a bounty hunter, as I heard.

Soundwave as an SUV with a guitar that becomes Laserbeak... is a bit of a weird idea, but I'll wait and see.

The only design I hate is that of Sari, the little girl helper... I expected someone along the lines of Starfire or Saturn Girl (from LOSH), not a Powerpuff-wannabe. Ah well.

Did you see the human villains? The Evil Archer (worst name since the 'Mechanic') looks like an untidy version of Green Arrow...

I heard he was Aaron Archer's guest cameo. Supposedly his face was drawn in his likeness, but I'm not certain as I couldn't be bothered to check.

Heeey! :) This doesn't look too bad at all! Even the toys look decent enough!

I think the only thing I'm a bit uncertain of is the little girl helper. But alas, I'm going to give it a try.

I'll take four dozen! Amazing preview, I wasn't keen to make a judgement, but now having seen it and the new toys, I'm gobsmacked. I look forward to the new direction.

Look ok, if the action is as good as clone wars, then it could be great.

I expect we'll get something more along the lines of Teen Titans, which I quite liked.

I loved Teen Titans (for a while) and if it's going to be like that, that'll be great.
To me at least.

Ditto. I loved Teen Titans until the story began to go nowhere(Somewhere around the Brain saga). Hopefully nothing like that happens.

This new clip of the show looks promising:Clicky.

The clip is interesting.

It'd be far better without so much background noise and that guys head in the way almost the whole time.
But..meh, there's nothing we can do about it.

I like it though.

It's nice to see a 2D cartoon back after the 3D Transformers in Energon and Cybertron.

My greatest worry so far is the japanamation style stop to the action and put crazy vertical lines during the transformations things. I just find it slows down the pace of the action so much. Plus that whole thing where they are fighting and then the characters stop moving but horizontal lines flash behind them sucks too.

I just hope its not overdone.
