Botcon 2010 Transformers Prime Panel Coverage

Here is a wrap up of the key points from the live coverage!

Transformers Prime Wrap Up Sounds like they are going for a very character oriented series – exploring who they are, where they are going, how they change

Full CG show!

a small group of Autobots are on Earth in case the Decepticons come back

Cast – Optimus Prime, Arcee, Bulkhead, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper

Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, not a boombox, more later

Show is named “Prime” because they are delving into what it means to be a Prime

Trying to make the Prime name stand for what it should, as the bearer of the Matrix and stuff


Prime’s design is a bit of a cross between movie and WFC

Megatron’s design is a bit like his WFC version, not the Movie one

And a hint of the Animated Deluxe Megatron, the Cybertronian design

Meg’s also has the buckethead

Megatron turns into a jet

Cybertronian vehicle, thinks Earth modes are beneath him

Prime, classic colors, much like WFC

26 eps per season, goal is 65+, may not air on 10/10/10 when hub launches.

Sue Blu voice director.

Continuity is non commital to one previous generation, but there is a bible at the offices that is 350 pages containing transformers lore they reference.

Recurring humans, but not the focus.

Prime, long nose truck

Starscream, very alien looking jet, but still true to classic form. Stylized.

Going to do battle damaged versions of CGI models, wont always be shiny and pretty.

Arcee is a single normal TF, no split like movie.

    Wow, TF: Prime is sounding pretty amazing. Looking forward to seeing the designs. Will there be toys for this?

    They wont be part of the core team, but I don't think that means they wont be there period.
