What is /co/'s thoughts on Transformers Animated? Its certainly a different take on the series, what with Optimus Prime being so low rank and the Cybertronian War being a past conflict. Personally I wasn't a huge fan of some of the alterations, but I think it had one of the better Megatron incarnations.

loved everything about it, it's like the premiere example of how to properly do an AU show
>>
>>94491747

Probably the best show as of recent time. Prime was too bogged down by being edgy, and robots in disguise might as well not even exist.
>>
>>94492318
I wouldnt say edgey, but it did put a huge focus on a serious tone. Worst thing I can say about that series is the animation, no Dinobots, and the endless waves of nameless Decepticons were stupid.

Animated was god tier.

At least we got Knock Out and Fowler from it.

Yeah but one of its biggest crimes was making Soundwave, the god tier Decepticon, a two episode character

What was wrong with it? I thought it was outstanding for a 3d show.

He would have had more, but the show was cancelled.

When is there going to be a transformers series where they all transform into fidget spinners?
>>
>>94494776
2020, twenty two months after the last fidget spinner has actually been sold or used.

Good show, but is always shorter than I remember it being.

Also too much focus on Sari, didn't give fuck one about Sari.

Here is our ultimate power macguffin that creates life.
Better give it to the irresponsible human girl.
Irresponsible human girl is irresponsible with ultimate power.
How did we not see this coming?
Make sure she still has it to do this again next episode.

1 of only 3 decent TF shows. {including Beast Wars, and Beast Machines}

and I'm really worried that the franchise won't ever have another show of similar quality again.
Every time we get a good show, it's like a freak accident that they seem hell-bent on not repeating again. Regardless of whatever chips on their shoulder Archer's team had in regard to certain aspects of the brand, we got a lot of the greatest stuff in both Animated and in the Classics/Universe/whatever toys, and now we're back to the status quo of not really giving a shit about either original new stuff or nostalgic old stuff. We're back to "take these homages and like them. you get so many of them you should be happy to get anything at all!" My favorite TF shows are the most adventurous divergence from G1 {origin of "Trukk not munky"} and I still see the value in a good Classics line! Don't fucking tell me to be more progressive!
What's sad is that the movies have been so much more successful than anything before, and yet the quality of everything is going down. I think if anything, the money is just accelerating the franchise's death because it makes them more greedy.

Whatever. I barely pay attention to the franchise any more. I can't even be bothered to speculate on which toys will go up in value to purchase new instead of used. I saved so much money by not buying toys.

>>94492787
Emphasis on tone, because it wasn't actually serious, it just gave the impression of being so.

Best bee and the only series where the autobots are more interesting and better than the decepticons


It was pretty good I'd say
>>
You could see Prowl dying from a mile away after the power ups he got in the last season. That was my only criticism.

The art style was garbage, but as a G1 fan, it had a lot of awesome payoff.

>>94491747
One of the best TF Shows.

One of my favorite bits of world building was how they reacted to organic life.

Kinda like that one all robot planet in Futurama and their 'organic' horror movie.
>>
It will be remembered the last good piece of Transformers before the franchise imploded on itself.
>>
>>94491747

Not the best, but not the worst. Definitely overhyped, and I'm not quite sure why. It really didn't do much of note, and it died out pretty damn quick. Designs looked horribly generic to me due to the DC-ification of them. Toys were extremely well done though, probably because they didn't have to try to be realistic and had very stylized proportions so they had an excuse to not stick to a vaguely human model/proportions. Looks completely out of place next to most other TF media as a result, the same way Bayshit does.

Worth a watch, but thats about it.

>Definitely overhyped, and I'm not quite sure why.
Because transformers media is mediocre to shit most of the time so it stood out by having a decent plot.
>>
>>94507137

They're kids shows outside of the Marvel, IDW, and european comics. I don't really know what people are expecting honestly. Closest we have to an actual, serious TF continuity are those three things listed above.

Stop saying this in every fucking thread about Animated you stupid retard. You are wrong.

I think you've got me confused with someone else, faggot, but I think your ranting only confirms what I said is likely true then if it's said so often it sets you off.
>>
>>94507168
It doesn't matter what they're expecting, Animated is one of the best in comparison to the others, especially to cartoons. So by the virtue of being less bad than the rest it's highly praised.

Good story and a great cast of bots and humans.
However, the cons were lacking in development, sometimes characters would regress, and the animation was disappointingly poor and low-budgeted despite the attractive fluidity-friendly art style.
>>
>>94507897
Teen Titans and Omniverse proved that TFA could've looked a whole lot better with just a decent animation budget.
