The New Transformers, on cartoon network ... a review

Post by Zoxesyr » Thu Dec 27, 2007 5:09 am

well I have seen at least the first 30 minutes, and I am not at all impressed.

The animation is low quality even for cartoon network, it looks like a combination of teen-titans and clone wars, and not in a good way.

The story has a really annoying child, who is already the "Chosen One". Because she is sacharine concentrated, I only want to slap her around, and not kill her. I'm sure that homicide will come later.

Gosh, and there was even an uncomfortable "birds and bees" moment, I only gagged a little. The taste of bile wasn't quite so bad as I expected.

And now they are heroes, so where is the "robots in disguise"? Even the movie did a better job of it.

...and I'll bet Megatron is gay, and starscreem wears a boa and stillettos

Anyone who is a transformers geek can weigh in with any opinions.

Please tell me i am wrong and this is going to be anything other than carcenogenic.

I've heard about this one. A friend of mine saw it and pretty much has the same opinions you have.

I thought the last Transformers series (Energon) was pretty damned good. This new one I'm afraid to see...
Shinei!

I haven't heard back from greboguru, so either he hasn't seen it yet, or he is still in shock. He is an uber-transformers-fan-boy.

Just talked to Greboguru, and here is his summary

Storyline - good
Dialogue - good to adequate (may improve)
Characters - good
Animation - GAG!

and he is a real TF otaku.
