    From two different sources. I am just happy Transformers Prime is getting some recognition.

    Not quite sure how they won an award for "background design". Outside of the bases which are mildly interesting, all of the environments are boring and lifeless. They absolutely did not deserve that award.

    Character animation and storyboarding? Yeah, those are legit wins, and congrats to everyone on the show for those.

    Unfortunately, that stuff is rarely in the show. Most of the time it's empty desert and an empty town.

    Now it's just empty desert. They destroyed the town, remember?

    I bet the Hasbro execs are grinning from ear to ear. (and thinking about how to capitalize off this) Hopefully this means The Hub will get an even bigger budget with special focus on Hasbro's flagship franchise, Transformers.
