    Hasbro and Boulder Media will be releasing a new Transformers cartoon, Transformers: Cyberverse, in 2018.

    The series will once again focus on Bumblebee, with Windblade alongside him, and here's the synopsis:

    Me wonders if this is in the same canon as the Primeverse, though I'd be fine if it were it's own continuity as well.

    Well, this came out of nowhere. I'll be curious to see how it ends up.

    That's a very unique premise. It also sounds like it could be a convenient plot device if Bee needs to remember something crucial to saving lives that he'll gradually find out over the course of an episode.

    I hope that doesn't happen frequently...I'd had my fill of memory loss episodes for a while. An entire show dedicated to that formula won't set well after half a season of it.

    So after almost a decade, noses return to a mainline Transformers cartoon.

    Has it been announced if they're going with CGI or 2-D?

    I'm surprised they're still focusing on Bumblebee. I guess they're really banking on that spinoff movie o_O.

    The series premise being centered around Bumblebee having flashbacks while paired up with Windblade in the present is a little different, but I'm willing to see how the writers handle it ;).

    I'm curious how many guest appearances and cameos we might get in 'Bee's flashbacks...
    I can't believe I didn't notice that :p.

    The art style in the illustration makes me think 2D, or something more along the lines of Rescue Bots, though the two can sometimes blend together so much that I can't be sure one way or another :sweat:.

    I'll give it a chance. Not much else to say.

    You're right. Pretty much all the promotional art for Robots in Disguise is 2-D so you never know.

    Speaking of Rescue Bots, I imagine we'll get more crossovers between these two shows now that their launching around the same time and sharing a production team.

    I'll give it a shot. I am a fan of the Transformers franchise, anyway.

    Ah, Shadow Striker. I think she was a repaint of Classics Wheelie in a 2-pack with a legends class Bumblebee. I think she was also in TFCC as a remold of RID Sideburn. I'm glad she is gonna show up in Cyberverse but I'll wait till she shows up in the cartoon.

    Hopefully they get more mileage out of her compared to most of the female 'Cons in RiD :sweat:.

    Starscream reminds me a lot of his RiD redesign, and Megatron looks like a very stylized take on his modern G1-inspired design :cool:.

    We have the first official VA for the series:

    Lianne Marie Dobbs as Slipstream.

    An additional fun fact: Slipstream will be the leader of the Decepticon Seekers this time around.

    Looking for her VA credits, the only thing I can find is a few roles in Pokemon, so I'm guessing this was recorded in New York :).

    Her leading the Seekers is neat, especially depending on if Starscream has to deal with being her subordinate :p.

    Although she might be leader of the Seekers while he's still 2nd in Command to Megatron, unless he's much lower on the Decepticon totem pole in this universe :ack:.

    Hope we see Thundercracker and Skywarp pop up too :D.

    The instagram post mentioned that she recorded in Miami while the director and writer were respectively in New York and Los Angeles. Maybe the voice cast is like Welcome To The Wayne, which mixes LA and NY voice actors.

    Kind of feels weird to already have a premiere date that's only a few months away when we still know so little about this cartoon...
