    So they're expanding their studio to other countries to deal with increased demand?

    I'm honestly surprised it took this long: even My Little Pony moved some of its production to...Singapore? by season two.

    Given Beast Hunters is a shorter season, I'm guessing this means one of two things:

    1. The workload is increased THAT much on BH (new assets/characters/etc)
    2. Polygon's been getting more work as a result of their work on Prime, and needs to expand.

    I think it could work for TFP's Beast Hunter season.

    I just think its kind of Amazing. With traditional Cell animation and a trained eye, you call tell the subtle differences in design when different animation houses produce different episodes of the same series. however with a CG series, it will be interesting t see how apparaent (if at all) the differences are. All we have seen is the teaser from NYCC. I'm curious now to know, was that Polygon or Silver Ant Animation?? I would like to see a sample of something from TF: Prime animated by SilverAnt to see if it is up to par with Polygon.

    Well that's cool. If nothing else it's probably to get the new models done on time.

    so ... may? if this partnership just announced bulk of work not done/begun yet or what?

    w/e how long it takes is how long it takes

    all i ask is for is a season 4 at least 16 long.

    that is all.
