    Funny thing is, that is nothing new. The original comics featured the Neo-Knights and "evil humans" like Joey Slick and the Mechanic quiet frequently. The original show had Dr. Archaville (Arch-villain), Snake (who was actually Cobra Commander), Mr Drath, The Nebulons (who were "human"), Abdul Fakkhati, and a few humanoid aliens as recurring villains. Beast Wars and Beast Machines are the only two shows thus far that have lacked humans (besides human ancestors) as both heroes and villains.

    Why must they ruin everything with the crappy animation they use these days?

    I know, I wish we would get another good show like we did back in the day.

    Actually to be honest, animation has gotten better. I mean the original TF show shipped the animation out to Korean animators and we'd continually get stuff like this.

    However I will say that the best stuff we've ever gotten hands down in Beast Wars and Beast Machines which was all CGI. Now that stuff should've been continued. I was never sure why they abandoned that type of animation.

    Because the Japanese were late to the game with CG animation.

    Yeah but there aren't a lot of cartoons in america being animated that way now (actually to be fair all that CGI stuff came from Canada -- which may explain why we don't see it as much, it's quiet possible they've abandoned using Canadian animators).

    Acutally most of the animation you watch these days is CG. Just 2D not 3D. Cell shaded 2D is much quicker to animate (and therefore cheaper) than 3D. Not requiring the massive amounts of rendering and processing.

    Ooh, Optimus has sideburns and a goatee!

    Well, artwork aside, I'm gonna watch the first episode before passing judgment on the quality of the story.

    I think what they're doing is emulating what the Teen Titans have become.

    Less Decepticons? Who was smoking what when that got passed?

    Also, the art is hideous. It might work for Teen Titans or similar, but not for what Transformers should be. I don't think many of the fans of the original will be able to stomach sitting through that. Looks like this one is strictly for the kids.

    The animation was questionable at times, but then they were just well designed characters dealing with bad animation. The new character designs are unwatchable no matter how they'll be animated.

    Incorrect. The story is what will make or break this show.
