How long do you want TF: Prime to last?


Recommended Posts

I love Animated, still miss it, think getting the BotCon Stunticon is the best $300 I ever spent, and sincerely hope we get a comic continuation.

Prime is great, and the novels, browser based TF Universe, and Fall of Cybertron expand the story further. I'm all for that. I do however feel there's room for the TFA story to cotinue. By the end of season 3 it was really developing nicely. Even Marty Isenberg and Derrick Wyatt expressed the desire to tell the story of season 4 in comic form in their interview with the TFCC, issue #39 page 15. If they're on board to tell the story I'll happily pay the extra $3-$4 a month to read it.

For the longest time, I did not have the Hub. The other day it "magically" appeared on my guide. I DVR'd Prime right away. I think I am pretty much caught up by now. My thoughts on this show can be summed up with this: Starscream is wearing stiletto heals - WTF?

I'm not a huge fan of long drawn out series. Too many times they just get stale. I'm fine with 3 - 4 season shows...just make'em solid and end them solid! None of this, oh we're canceling this soon, so it's just gonna fizzle out and wrap up quickly, so we can get to the next flavor...and do the same thing to it. :doh


What we saw with Animated, and apparently what it looks like is happening with Prime, is worse than that, though. They're great ideas, full of potential, that are practically treated as filler between the extremely disjointed and inconsistent Bay movies. Yeah, I know they rake in plenty at the box office, but they're pretty lousy, both as a continuum and on the shelves.


Here's an idea: make a correlation between a movieverse (unrelated to Bay's so-called 'vision') and a toonverse, and let it run over several years. The same would apply to the toys. Consistency will take you far, Hasbro.

Hasbro should get a director and team of writers interested in the same thing. That way they could have a show that correlates with the movies in between theatrical releases. Tie everything together like they so desperately want.

You know, I'm rewatching episode four and it's dawned on me that I've really grown to care about these characters in a big way and really wish that Hasbro Studios would reconsider canceling Transformers Prime to redirect for the movie. In my minds eye there's enough room for both to be done and after we got an Optimal Prime in this new series, I find myself just wanting to know more about this universe and see how much further these characters can grow.


My hopes are that there will be room for Transformers Prime after the movie has long gone... but we shall see.


Much love for this series! :love

    • Crankcase is hilarious. It's so awful and awesome at the same time. The entire front of the vehicle comes off, turns sideways, has a little piece flip around and becomes a gun. Ever since we first seen pictures of him I was wondering what they were doing with the front of his vehicle/chest. I never would've expected that though. It sure is a different design choice that's for sure. I can't wait for the upgrade kit to give him his shoulder cannons. I wonder how those will be implemented. I hope at least better than SS86 Jazz's shoulder cannon. Dead End is what it is still. Nothing to really talk about. I still don't like how Hasbro makes the lower legs longer than the upper legs for Transformers constantly though. Many of their designs would work better with longer upper legs like Dead End. Pointblank looks good. I understand the hate some have but I don't have that same hate. I just hate the Targetmaster still. We just had better ones that they're still using. Did it really cost that much to add one in at this point? Sure it's double the parts count and isn't gangmolded but still, it's not like Pointblank himself is all that complicated to begin with and the Battlemasters have long since made their money back with using those molds. They could've moved him into a wave with reissues or slight retools to eat some of the cost for that wave too instead of having it a wave with major retools and new molds entirely. Again, I can't wait to see the upgrade kit to give him that engine block spoiler gun thing to finish off the center rear of the vehicle mode. Hopefully they'll remember to put a 5mm port in the middle of it for a Targetmaster. Yeah Peacemaker already fills that spot but we all know that someone is going to make that piece to fit there. Skullgrin looks good but I don't like it as Skullgrin. I still think the original Generations Skullgrin is better overall. I do like all the weapons on this new one though. I'm just a little confused about what the vehicle mode is really supposed to be. It has treads in the back but nothing in the front. Is it a tank? Is it a half-track? Is it a hover tank? What is it? That head is awesome though and beats the older head by quite a bit. Transmetal II Megatron. Transmetal II Megatron. Wow. I just hope that the dragon neck/upper chest area is mistransformed. Or that something can be done. That was very much a bad choice if that's indeed all it can be. I can't wait to have to tighten up all those ball joints to get everything just like I want. Cryotek is the obvious redeco but I want one more other than him. I seen a digibash of him as RiD 2001 Megatron/Gigatron and while it looks good, I don't want that. I'd much rather have this redone as Beast Wars II Galvatron. It's not like the drill tank was all that much better than TMII Megatron's dragster so it's easy to leave out. Once you take out the drill tank, the dragons don't look too dissimilar to each other at that point. Yeah Galvatron didn't have a dragon arm but I'll take what I can get when it comes to a new toy for him.
