Major update to the Hub's Transformers: Prime website

Posted by:

The Hub's main website, including its section on Transformers: Prime, has undergone a major overhaul, complete with several image galleries and character biographies.

The image galleries consist mostly of the previously-seen concept artwork of character almodes, but do contain a few new images. Specific images that have not yet been seen are those of Starscream's altmode, Bulkhead's almode, Soundwave's altmode,

It's the character biographies that are the real focus of this site's upgrade. Included in this section are bios and images of the following characters:
Autobots: Arcee, Optimus Prime, Ratchet, Bulkhead, Bumblebee
Decepticons: Soundwave, Megatron, Starscream
Humans: "Raf" Esquivel*, Jackson Darby, Miko Nakadai

* - Raf's bio page is strangely inaccessible for the moment.

Things to note are that the image of the Decepticon Troopers' altmode is labeled as "Eradicon", The image of Arcee's altmode is labeled "RC", Jack's full name is revealed to be "Jackson", Miko's surname of "Tezuka" has been oddly changed into Nakadai, and Soundwave has even less of a face than ever (resembling the visor faces of the G2 Cyberjets).

My thoughts.

Main Page:
* What is this "rare element" that Megatron supposely has? Is it Dark Energon, or something movie-inspired?
* "Team Prime" - how original
* "...needs human help more than ever." - Oh, that sounds promising.

Image Galleries:
* Megatron's eyes are peering out of his spaceship mode. And his cannon become its thruster.
* Prime's altmode looks kinda... bland.
* Starscream, on the other hand, is one sleek jet!
* Bulkhead's one big bruising ATV!
* Huh? The image of Soundwave's altmode shows a bigger image of his robot mode instead of a bigger altmode pic. Woops.

Character Bios:
* Arcee is "least 'flawed'" of the Autobots and their "best soldier"? EAT THAT, JAPAN! Also, she has a bond with Optimus and teams up with Jack. Umm... okay.
* You can so tell that Prime's bio was written by a fanboy. XD
* They actually say that Soundwave HAS NO FACE?!! And he has Deployers (instead of Mini-Casstte bots) in his chest, as well as... TENTACLES?!! Oy vey, no hentai allowed. Please!
* Ratchet knows Optimus the best? But it was Jazz who was Optimus' best friend in the book. Is this friendship something from the game? Also, he DOESN'T want the Autobots to bother with protecting humans? Our medical hero, ladies and gentlemen.
* Unlike the Movieverse homages of most of the other bots, Bulkhead is definitely an Animated homage. Though, given his bio and voice actor (Kevin Michael Richardson), it doesn't seem like he'll have the slightly-dimwitted persona his Animated counterpart had. Oh, and he's partnered with Miko. Seriously, why all the human partner stuff?
* DARN IT, BUMBLEBEE! WHY CAN'T YOU SPEAK NORMAL ANYMORE?!! He was fully capable of clear ununciated speech in the game (done by Johnny Young Bosch to boot!)! How is Josh Keaton supposed to make him speak if all he does is sound like a censorship frenzy?! And he's partered with Raf, what a surprise!
* Raf's ain't working, so: skip
* Bland Megs bio, moving on.
* Jack's bio just made me lose a good chunk at whatever preliminary interest I had in the guy.
* Anorexic Screamer looks cool and sound decent. Especially considering his voice actor: STEVEN BLUM!!!
* Miko's into "American pop culture" and "wild punk outfits". And she's a "bad" girl. Erm... somehow I'm now all the more nervous about what Raf's persona will be like.

I love Megatron's bio though. It's like the bio writers don't care anymore, and now Megatron's just evil for the fun of it.

this bonding they keep going on about could they be talking of binary bonding perhaps? maybe masters return.
the profiles suck to put it kindly

Oh, no. When they say "bonding", they mean the "Sam and Bumblebee" partner routine.
