I know I shouldn't say this but....I'd take Japanese stock animation Transformations like in Energon and Cybertron over this.

I would have to agree with that. Oh lord, and these are only the Autobots, who knows what Megatron and the Decepticons will look like.

Ultra Magnus, Starscream, Megatron and a few others are confirmed for the series so we haven't even seen all the Autobots yet.

they need to change the name to "Transformers: Crapulated". i'm sorry but that's a piss poor job...it's kinda sad that i'd almost rather see them draw G1 style. at least there would be a sense of nostalgia. as much as i don't get the nostalgiac feeling from the live action movie....i get next to nothing from those drawings.

Actually it's kind of funny, I do get a nostalgic feeling from these drawings since most of the characters are chocked full of nods to previous characters/incarnations. But the art itself is just stinky poo and doesn't fit well with the robots at all.

The only other positive I see so far is the potential for really cool toys to accompany the line. Some of those designs, assuming they don't try to embody the animation, could make for great toys.

So, that means we'll be getting crappy toys that can't Transform. Wow, that's just great.

Have you ever seen cheap plastic used in Asian market knockoffs that's stiff and badly painted? Imagine that here, only with better paint and half of the butchery done in the design alone.

The problem with "Transformers: Animated" is because... They've always been ****ing animated. For the past 20 years. Until the movie. "Transformers: Animated" makes it seem like them being animated is a new thing, which is very much is not.

I have said it many a time, make a goddam series based on the recent comics by IDW and animated by the same guys. Those guys and the others from the Dreamwave days all piss excellence. It would be animated series of the decade, hands down.

Dreamwave? Yeah Pat Lee can kind of kiss my ass. Neglecting payroll and then buying yourself and your friends BMWs with the funds. Yeah, go to hell Pat.

I mean they toy and the cartoon model don't look much alike. I mean G1 Prime resembled the toy. But it wasn't an exact likeness like you find in the Unicron trilogy or RiD.

And what exactly does that matter anyway? I don't really care how much a cartoon resembles a toy, it's that the deformed Samurai Jack Transformers are crap.

Actually it'll look like Teen Titans and The Batman. Same people are doing the show. Plus one of the Beast Machines writers. Which means it'll probably be half decent. And like all TF shows the animation models were created by Derrick Wyatt (the guy who designed the characrters for TT and LOSH) from prototypes HasKara has already made.

Which doesn't change the fact that the new Transformers look terrible in the least.

TF: Animated, like every other cartoon today, is about a team of superheroes. They dont fight the Decepticons that much, instead they "battle evil humans in superhero fashion." I'm going to kick the bag of the next guy who posts in this thread just to show my contempt.

I agree, the show's stills might look like crap, but the fluidity and animation of the show (if like Teen Titans at all) will very slick and clean. Should watch and episode and see how it goes.

- Weird Al Yankovic is doing a voice

- No plans to do BOCTON EXCLUSIVE FIGS IN CLASSICS.

- No Thundercraker

- One reason they cant do all the seekers is becuase they have to offer a variety of toys and they dont usually have enough toy space to offer them all

- They spend a lot of time on naming characters. Its difficult with trademarks and such. They try to reuse ones they already own

- The molds for the G1 Dinobots are lost so they prob won't reissue them at this time

- Classics Sunstreak and Sideswipe will have different heads

- May see some common vehicles like steam rollers, gabage trucks, etc... in the Animated Seires

- There may be some Marvel/Transformers crossovers. They are working on them at a corporate level right now.

-MORE TO COME-
There you go

Transformers Animated stuff
------------------------------
Going to give us a sneak peak
Better timeslot for TV show than with Energon and Cybertron
Hasbro thinks that we shouldn't be worrying about things as much as we are.
Worked very closely with Cartoon Network.
People working on cartoon are big fans ... I got the impression that they are moreso than the folks at Hasbro
Wanted to diversify, freshen things up.
It's our new Cartoon series for 2008
Production has been brought back to US

Writing Style
------------------------
Return to character development and story telling similar to BW.
Action driven show - very fluid.
Episodic but ties into an overall Seasonal Arc
Smaller cast of Bots with signifciant character development for each individual character.
Action driven with a dose of Humor.
Major fcosu on personality and abilities
Rich action sequences
Familiar and New characters
Human super-villains and Decepticon villains.

Artistic Style
----------------------------
Highly stylized and fluid animation
More energetic and expressive bots.
Major focus on personality and abilities
Grow from Mechanical to Emotive designs
Familiar and New characters
Realistic and Stylized transformations.
1 transformation is tasmanian devil styled.
Will not be anime cut transformations.
You will really see them transform


Summary
----------------------

Set on Earth in the near future in Detroit, the alien Transformers are thrust into a world populated by humans and automatons. As visitors to Earth, the Transformers -- Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Prowl, Bulkhead and Ratchet -- work in the human world interacting with the 'natives' in exciting and humorous ways. Transformers Animated has been created to showcase the heroic Autobots working together to battle the evil Decepticons and save Earth with kid-relatable plot lines filled with humor, distinctive characters persaonalities and dynamic action.

AUTOBOTS
----------------------------
Ratchet - season Autobot, legitimate combat, cybertronian version of the military, like the guy from Full Metal Jacket
Ironhide will be like the Fantastic Four's Thing.
Prowl is like a ninja.
Grimlock is a T-REX!!! HUGE ROUND OF APPLAUSE!!!
THERE WILL BE TWO OTHER DINOBOTS IN THE SHOW.
They are 3 crazy dude.
Grimlock looks awesome

DECEPTICONS
-------------------
Megatron is a gun in his Cybertronian mode.
Starscream kind of resembles Cyclonus in jet mode.
Has kind of like a Chris Latta voice
Voiced by Tom Kenny
We will be seeing most of the Transformers in their Cybertronian modes at the beginning of the series.
Blitzwing is a triplechanger (tank, jet, robot) - looks f'in awesome!!!
Kind of a new spin on his character, fun personality quirk: has a split personality
Spinning face gimmick on the toy
Lugnut (similar in body style to Bulkhead)
If Bulkhead is like the Thing, then Lugnut is like the Incredible Hulk.
Lugnut has missiles for hands,
Jet of some sort
BLACKARACHNIA!!! HUGE ROUND OF APPLAUSE
Different origin story for BA than in BW.
Starts out as a different character entirely, flashbacks, one of the more complicated Decepticons, you'll care more about her.

HUMANS CHARACTERS
------------
Cpt. Fanzone - Police Chief
Sari (girl) and her father Isaac Sumdac
A nod to Isaac Asimov, there, perhaps? (Also note that Sumdac is Cadmus spelled backwards - I wonder if perhaps the new producers aren't comic book junkies...)

Quote:
Sari's interaction with the Autobots is unlike her interaction in the past shows. It works out better. Not the typical human sidekick.
Sari is an outcast. Looks to the Autobots for friendship.
Human villians - "Angry Archer" (applause), NOT your typical run-of-the-mill Dr. Archeville character. Super villains ...

The Autobots WILL have their Ark. It looks like a stylized G1 Ark. Crowd: Will there be a toy? No response from Hasbro.
The Decepticons WILL have the Nemesis.
Nemesis dwarfs the Ark. It's GIGANTIC.
The Ark is about the size of one of the spikes on the Nemesis.
Nemesis has a purple lighting and black interior.
Ark had warm colors, circular, multi-level
Showed us some shots of what Detroit looks like.
Showed us a shot of the Sumdac Tower's interior.

What will the toys look like?
Toys developed at the same time as the animation designs.
Animation style allows us to show more personality with each character.
90% animation/toy accuracy.
Takara has really helped out with these designs.
New sculpting style.
No more full line gimmicks!!! WOO HOO! Big round of applause ...
Transformation is the feature.
Signature weapons and poses - attitude and stance.
Range of motion is great!
Allows for the characterization to stand out more.
There are some things they won't be able to do because of joints and stuff.
Accessories will transform?
Convey a greater range of style with these characters.
Wow ... just showed us what deluxe and Voyager Optimus Primes. Look awesome. The stylistic sculpting is there ... match up extremely well with the animated versions. Wow. Just wow! I wish you guys could see this.
Deluxe Bumblebee and Voyager class Bulkhead - really staying faithful to animated look.
Archer: can't thank Takara enough for their help with this line.
Really paid off by working daily with Takara and Cartoon Network.
Deluxe Prowl and Deluxe Ratchet
All figures have great articulation.
Artist rendition (3-D model) of Voyager Grimlock.
Voyager Megatron and Starscream: Megatron is a vertical take off Cybertronian vehicle in this image. I'm confused with the gun mode drawing of him from earlier. Maybe the gun mode Megatron is his earth mode.
Deluxe Blackarachnia looks great!
Lugnut and Blitzwing pics ...

The future
-------------------------
Working on season 2 already.
More familiar and new characters.
Possibility of season 3 and 4.
Desire to create brand new characters ... with cameos by G1 favorites.
Toys will have a "matte" finish like Batman Animated.

AllSpark looks like a Matrix/
Optimus has an axe.
Megatron has a sword.
The animation is really slick looking. Everyone is going to love this.
Optimus Prime doese have a mouth and a face shield.
The transforrmation of Optimus Prime looked really cool.
My opinion has officially changed
Optimus says: "transform and roll out."
Opening audio is very cool: hip hop, rock type style.
No transformation audio yet.
The Optimus Prime axe is awesome.
Showed us a space scene.
Optimus pole-vaulted with an extended version of his axe.

2 segments for fall 2008: Transformers Animated and Transformers Universe (Classics 2.0). I have the impression that the G1 styled font "Transformers Universe" is the official name for Classics 2.0.

Why not a cartoon based on the movie? The movie is it's own Universe.

Animated Optimus Prime has a detachable trailer.

Getting more and more difficult to make just a trailer without a feature.

Probably will not do a character in Animated and Classics at the same time.

Susan Blu is the voice director for Transformers Animated.
Hasbro has little to do with voice casting (which translates to they really don't have anything to do with it).

Weird Al will be voicing a character in the Animated series.

Might be a garbage truck or school bus type vehicle mode Transformer in Animated.
David Kaye also confirmed that Weird Al is the voice of the garbage truck - a neat nod to TF:TM '86, if I do say so myself.

Quote:
Could possibly be more female Transformers in later episodes of Animated.

Grimlock will have his familiar talk in the Animated series.

Now to the really interesting stuff about the animated cartoon that he shared:

-This cartoon they are recording the voices together in the same room.
-Appearing characters that he mentioned:

Prowl (Jeff Dennis)
Prime (David Kaye)
Bumblebee (Bumper Robinson--'Chris Rock' like)
Ultra Magnus (Jeff Dennis-- very Robert Stack-y)
Arcee (Susan Blu reprisal?)
Black Arachnia (Cree Summer)
Grimlock (David Kaye --did a SNL Phil Hartman Frankenstien-y voice as an example)
Lugnut (David Kaye)
Starscream (Tom Kenney)
Ratchet (Corey Burton)
Shockwave (Corey Burton)
Megatron (Corey Burton)
Jazz (Phil LaMarr, of MadTV fame)
Blurr (Reprised by John Moschita)
Bulkhead (Bill Fagerbacky-- Patrick from Spongebob)
All in all, this sounds better than what it appeared we were going to get, IMO. I can't wait to hear Burton voice Shockwave again, and LaMarr was one of hopefuls for voicing Jazz in the movie, so I'll get to hear him yet. And after seeing Moschita reprise his FedEx ad schtick on VH1's I Love The '80s 3D...the man's voice has not slowed a bit.

At the risk of sounding like a 'blasphemer', my faith in this show being halfway-decent is starting to look up again.
