TRANSFORMERS: PRIME Info, Poster and First Clip; A New Five Part Original CGI Mini-Series Premiering on The Hub

     October 28, 2010

If you’re a fan of Transformers, you’ll be happy to learn that The Hub (formerly Discovery Kids) will be premiering a new five-part original CGI-animated Transformers series on November 29 – December 3 and it’s called Transformers: Prime.  According to the info we were given:

The all-new mini-series will feature iconic characters of the franchise, including Autobots Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, and the ominous Decepticon Megatron, as well as introducing new human characters to the action series. The series takes place on Earth.

While I’m a bit apprehensive to get too excited for a new animated series, it is being executive produced by Alex Kurtzman, Robert Orci and Jeff Kline.  Kurtzman and Orci served as executive producers and writers on Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.  Let’s hope this is better than the last movie.  Hit the jump for more info on the series, and you can also check out the poster in high resolution.

Here’s the poster (click for high res), the first clip, and further down is the info on when the show will air.
