    Well the first trailer is up on you tube and it looks good.​
    Some of the major revives
    1. Menasha is on a rampage.
    2. The Council wants to build an army of combiner, and a personal note of hope they don't trun Rodimus into a more villainous character.
    3. Windblade might start a war.
    4. Starscreem actually cares about others, unless he's lying
    5. And Megatron is back.

    Here's the last poster (I think):

    I just realized something. The Rodimus design they're using is probably a reference to his recent Masterpiece toy, as opposed to the Combiner Wars release.

    Well saw the first episode and I must say I am underwellemed. The action was good of course. But it feels like we're starting the Series in the middle.

    Why are the combines even fighting. And how did the planet suffer so much under the a few combiners.

    Also I think that they killed off the combiners too easily.

    It's the same reason to fight as in any other Transformers-related media: Autobots vs Decepticons.

    Same.

    Computron also had the easiest job. He just needs a stilted robot voice and you're set. Tatsunoko made the Transformers Go! OVAs that never made it out of Japan. Let's just say the choppy mouth movements here a huge step forward considering they didn't animate mouths at all last time.


    Maybe we should start a spoiler talkback for this?

    Actually from what i gathered from the character videos of Optimus Prime and Starscream the civil war is over. Megatron is defeated the counsel is being remade with Starscream and Rodimus Prime as members. I assume that Optimus has stepped down as leader.

    So the question is if the war is over why are they still fighting?

    Can't say I'm excited for them anymore, but at least the cliffhanger can be resolved.

    A lot of new info was revealed about Titans Return, including voice cast and a plot summary as well as some potential spoilers via Variety.

    Tay Zonday? Is this real life?

    Judd Nelson is back? That's really cool!

    Anyway, if this is in November, I guess the final installment will be in 2018.

    I guess Hasbro bumped up the budget enough that they could finally afford some bigger names in the voice cast. Even the episodes are longer now :eek:.

    Great to have Cullen back as Optimus :D.

    I mean, wow, they got Judd Nelson back as Rodimus. That's pretty impressive. Hopefully he gets more to work with here then he did in Animated ;).

    Will Wheaton as Perceptor...I think I'll have to hear it and see what this Perceptor is going to be like before I make any judgements, but it's an interesting casting choice :).

    Jason David Frank as "Emissary"... does that mean he's basically playing Spike Witwicky :rolleyes2:?

    Michael Dorn as Fortress Maximus should be fun. And is that supposed to be Nolan North as Metroplex (who I assume is the "ancient ally" in the plot description) o_O?

    I'm surprised they didn't recast Megatron with Frank Welker, especially since they got Peter Cullen back as Prime. I guess they were just happy with Jason Marnocha? I mean, his Megatron was pretty much the most consistent highlight of Combiner Wars :p.

    I also kind of have to really roll my eyes at them adding multiple Youtube celebrities to the cast, although I guess I'm mildly curious to see who they're playing :rolleyes:.

    Yeah, it looks bigger all around.

    One thing I noticed: Eric Calderon goes unmentioned. It looks like F.J. DeSanto is in charge now.
