Transformers Prime to Return in February

A new Transformers: Prime commercial that aired with a repeat of episode 1 finally explains why The Hub has not provided the regular time slot for the cartoon series. It turns out it simply doesn't have one. Once the initial five episodes of the opening "Darkness Rising" story arc airs this week, the series is going on hiatus until February 2011. Very odd scheduling decision to air five episodes in one week then wait two months to air more as it negates any momentum the mini-series might have generated. At this point I give up on trying to figure out what the Hub scheduling brain trust is up to. (via TFW2005's Soundwave9)

  6. It's probably on hiatus so they can finish the animation.

    Evidence suggests with Prime that the animation is pretty down-to-the-wire - just look at how we got that preview clip a few weeks back that was lacking final textures.

    Odds are they simply don't have any more episodes ready to air.

  7. I somewhat agree. This show does have several flaws:

    1. I HATE OPTIMUS'S MOUTH! IT LOOKS LIKE SHIT!
    2. Bumblebee not having a speaking voice does not do the character any justice.
    3. Even though the show's portrayal of Starscream is accurate, he is too small for my liking.
    4. SOUNDWAVE LOOKS TERRIBLE! I am pretty sure that TF fans everywhere are pretty dissapointed at how that character looks in the show.
    5. No cool opening theme song? WHAT GIVES?!
    6. Arcee should stop with her bitch-assness! It's flat out annoying! Maybe they should have Optimus and Bulkhead both tell her to shut the fuck up and stop being a total hard-ass! They should have Sideswipe in her place instead!
    7. Couldn't Kurtzman and Orci have come up with a more coherent plot for at least this 5 part miniseries?
    In the end, I think we should wait to see how this show progresses when it resumes in Feb. OK?!

  10. i watched it... it's something to watch in the mean-time. Like if your waiting for a show to come on this is what you would watch... but im a kid who likes cartoons :) i don't care for Optimus Prime's mouth either! They should have made him with the G1 style and sproutsed it up to look like Michael Bay's Optimus... but that's my thought on it...

  11. The reason these episodes aired in December should be obvious. They're 30-minute toy commercials disguised as a tv show. Just in time for Christmas.

    The problem with this is from what I understand, they don't plan on making any toys for this.
