Stephen Davis Interview Reveals Details on Transformers 2014 Cartoon From Hasbro Studios

Recommended Posts

Worldscreen have posted an itnerview with Hasbro Studios' Stephen Davis in which he reveals some news about the next Transformers TV show. What a lot of us were worried about is looking to be the case that Hasbro will launch another Rescue Bots type show aimed at a much younger audience. That means we're less likely to see the Transformers back in a biggger bolder way, but more of a candy coated good feeling mode that is less than meets the eye. Read the details below.

Tools and fools. Following up quite possibly the best Transformers toon EVER with some watered down, half-baked, milquetoast dribble. Here that? Sounds like...Hasbro. :poop

Perhaps, but I'd much rather watch TF:Prime than the movies ANY DAY! I appreciate much of the Generations stuff, but would still like a mature toon that my 8-year-old and I can enjoy together, like Prime (which wasn't too scary or complex for him). That Rescue Bots junk got old for him quick, 'cause there's not much to it (and NOTHING for me). Enough is dumbed down for kids these days...Transformers shouldn't be one of them. :shrug

I understand where your comiong from, but remember, Rescuebots wasn't targeted for the eight-year orl demographic. It was targeting the four to five year old range. The new show that Habro is making, according to this article is also targeting that younger age range as well as the eight year olds. They're trying to widen the demographic.

Certainly. But no reason to dumb down an otherwise GREAT show like TF:Prime. Widen the kiddie demographic with further development of Rescue Bots. Give the 10-40 year old demo, which is arguably a much more robust demographic, more Prime or an equivalent. Something worth watching. :shrug

    • Agreed. Let's leave that word in the historical dustbin please.   But I also disagree with the basic argument here ie that this is a stupid controversy. I DO think the current 14 issue is likely a case of an innocent coincidence, but the initial MAGA issue was not. It was an objectively political statement that has no place on a toy. Additionally, there's an extra problem with either being on Jazz; a character whose voice was originated by one of the few black performers to voice a Transformer, and also the first. 14 may have had an innocent origin in this case, but in light of both the previous not-innocent MAGA issue, this being Jazz, AND the fact that the fandom was bound to wonder why a number on a well-loved character was changed (see the endless speculation regarding ER Smokescreen), the result is a very bad look that could have and frankly should have been anticipated by the design team.
