I’m Trying to Be Nice to Transformers: Prime, Really I Am


Seibertron has a slew of new Transformers: Prime promo videos, and I swear I’m showing you the very best one. The one that makes Transformers: Prime look the most entertaining. Indeed, if you don’t go watching the character specific promos for Arcee, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper and new unnecessary child sidekick Jack Darby, you might be able to look past the bland, sparse environments, the weird mouth-slits all the Transformers have, and that all the fight scenes have at last one Autobot who launches him/her/itself high into the air into a crowd of nameless Decepticons grunts. So… don’t go watch those other videos, is what I’m saying. Just watch this one, and cross your fingers.
