Lets hope this cartoon is more well received than the Prime Wars cartoons.

Wait. It says "TRILOGY" on the picture and it's series, not 3 movies like previous work from Polygon Pictures?

You know, they just did Godzilla trilogy. I bet it's the same deal this time. Not episodic series.

FJ DeSanto (Transformers: Titans Return, Transformers: Power of the Primes) is the showrunner


Let's hope its better than either of those because Machinama's TF shows were absolutely awful.

I loved those games, but Polygon?

I’m concerned.

This War for Cybertron (same with the toys), don't have any connect to the War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron games.

What’s wrong with Polygon working on it? They did Transformers Prime which looked great and is one of the best Transformers series.

I hope one of the autobots looks like a puma!

Bonus points if it plays 'Polkas y Huapangos - Los Dos Laredos' while in car mode.

People love to hate them because of their stylized CGI.

That said they're probably the best suited to handle this given that SOLA is also busy for full 3D CG shows.

"The amateurish production of the Prime Wars Trilogy can't continue onto Netflix ... right?"

Then I look at the staff on-board.

Polygon's at least an improvement over Tatsunoko's struggle CG ...

This is a followup to the Transformers Prime Wars Trilogy. That series had three seasons, each with their own specific branding. It's likely a similar situation here.

"a new animation look and style" beside this line being redundant since every Transformers property has there own look and style I wish they said they were going to go back to the G1 look.

A man of culture, I see. Man, it's been years since I last watched it.

You have the IDW comic books and the Bumblebee movie not sure why a new animated series should be another property to do that.

Give War For Cybertron: Siege a chance before y'all start hating it. Granted, Polygon needs to work on human character CG, but robot/mecha CG looks gorgeous!!


I can't wait to see this, but I'm not subscribing to Netflix just for WFC: Siege. I'm sure there will be downloads available.

I don't read the comics and the Bumblebee movie still relies heavily on the Michael Bay films that it still prevents it from being a good Transformers movie.
