Transformers: Prime
 
This series will be hitting the West first - but, in the fullness of time, may well follow another TF series across the Pacific once enough episodes for TakaraTomy's consumption are set for eating...

Transformers: Prime is an in-development series, which will air in the US on The Hub in late 2010. (Dunno yet who's gonna air it here in Canada.)

As you can see, there'll be an adorable pony some dog thing a very Bayformer-like Bumblebee in it.


Oh, and Jeffrey Combs will be voiding Ratchet! Yayness.

I enjoy the movie designs but they are really over exposed. I'm really tired of looking at the same old Camero Bumblebee over and over again. I hope this is not true or not the final design. I want some fresh designs...

Looks like the host network in the US, The Hub, will start on the 10th of October.

I'd say it's not a far-fetched guess to imagine this series' premiere taking place during that week?

Someone in this show is gonna sound awfully familiar...

WTF is going on here?

“Transformers toys, for example, can't air within or adjacent to the "Transformers" show due to government restrictions. The same goes for other Hasbro-branded programs that also have products to advertise at retail.”

Probably due to the show itself being taken to be a 23 minute commercial for the products. Plus the government bureaucracies have to get their regs in there to protect little kids from the "evils of big corporate capitalism", because otherwise there'd be little to justify their existence...

So you're telling me that the government has decide to enact a couple of ridiculous laws preventing corporations from deliberately targetting kids because the parents have decided to emasculate themselves by giving into their kids' every demand?

This is stupid, toys are meant to be played and as such they are aimed at kids. If this was say the deliberate junk food advertising, it would be understandable. Not to mean I don't find that any less of a idiotic moral panic since you can get a kid to grow out of Maccas phase by giving them 'le gasp' healthy, tasty food. The worse here, is that you waste your money on giving them something to enjoy. And keep in mind, you have the damn money.

So kiddies, want Optimus Prime? Work for it!!

What happened to the good old days?

DRAGUN H.E.X. 2010-05-19 04:15

Like maybe Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime?
I'm definetly up for more Transformers! So sign me up!!:)

Nerroth 2010-05-22 01:14

Frank Welker's on board, too.

Dunno who he's gonna voice, though - but if he's not Megatron, I'd be surprised if he wasn't Soundwave.

Nerroth 2010-06-09 14:58

The first good look at Bumblebee!

Hedd 2010-06-10 00:15

Is this using the original Transformers universe or that paper mache abomination sculpted around some non-existent actress's backside?

Thewanderer 2010-06-14 12:53

A little educated guess here, but the guys in charge of the Transformers universe fiction will probably classify this show's universe with the "Tyran Cluster"(aka cluster of "TF universes" where the TFs are all bayformer-esque) in the Transformers multiverse.

Leo_Otaku 2010-06-16 23:40

*points* 0_0 THERE IS THAT NEW PONY DESIGN!!!!! (had to get that out what the hell hasbro what the hell) They released some toys at the fair... a show huh.... >.>

Actually considering this game is being released tomorrow there's evidence to the contrary. Would be nice to see a trailer of the TV series.


Nerroth 2010-06-23 00:42

Hopefully there will be more info at BotCon this weekend.


Also, after reading the also-recently-released Exodus novel, I'd be very surprised if they weren't trying to set the context for this show in that book (and in the WfC game)...

Nerroth 2010-07-22 12:44

Okay, so:


There's a big statue of the new Optimus Prime at this year's SDCC.


Also, there's gonna be a Masterpiece Rodimus Convoy, YEAH! (I'd probably be the only one posing him alongside Figma Rin, though...)

Nerroth 2010-07-23 00:42



And stuff.

DRAGUN H.E.X. 2010-07-25 05:51

they named one of the main human characters Rafael, after an Angel? interesting...

Are you sure he wasn't named after the Ninja Turtle?

It disturbs me that we don't see Starscream, or any of the other Decepticons, or Starscream... Just Megatron and putties "Decepticon Troopers". Obviously those guys are so the good guys get to kill destroy Decepticons on a weekly basis without traumatizing the rug rats watching...

Still, assuming they do give Megatron some other Decepticons to work off of, the castings of Cullen and Welker (to voice Megatron?) have me interested...
