^ I've also heard good things about Transformers Animated. It's stylization makes me think it's the Windwaker to the Transformers' LoZ standard.

I want to be off the same mind here, but the fact is I heard Garry Chalk as Optimus in so many iterations (most notably, Beast Wars), I thought he had been so since G1.

But no, that of course is Peter Cullen. Chalk though does sound the most like Cullen's G1 performance than any other (Cullen's Live Action performance is noticeably deeper).

I think it's probably the best entry into the Transformers franchise so far, with gripping story telling, memorable incarnations of the characters, and it doesn't stop itself from steeping into dark-story telling. :) If anything, I think TF:P would fit best with the scheme of the EVA universe.


Um... while Prime would be best story wise because of its "dark" tone to cross with EVA, Animated was far better story,character development, design ect. wise overall, second only to Beast Wars (at least in my opinion). Plus ya know P.O.K.E (Punch Of Kill Everything) which would be awesome to see in the EVA universe.

Maybe I'm a bit of a heretic here, but as far as Transformers go, I liked Armada most. It could be funny, but could get serious if necessary. All in all I liked it the most, despite being rolled into Transformers since G1 and watching Beast Wars in german on cable TV despite not knowing a word they were saying :tongue:

^ I have to agree with you on Armada being the best Transformers series, if only because of the really cool twist they did with Starscream's character.
My earliest childhood memory was getting mugged by Death.

Years later, I started writing this.

As far as I can tell, there is no correlation between the two.

I'm unfamiliar with Transformers (other than the movies) so what I want to know is this: what medium is this crossover going to be in? Toys? A manga? A TV series?

But as long as it has Starscream doing the Gendo pose, I'll consider this a win!

But from what I know, they've done crossovers with a lot of other things, like The Avengers, Star Wars, and G.I. Joe. All of these basically consisted of comic miniseries and limited-edition toys, so that's what I'm expecting this to be like too.

From my source:
The Angels are invading. Breaking a long silence, the mysterious life-forms known as the Angels suddenly appear. The weapons the UN forces gather together in retaliation can't even scratch them. In the end, they turn to the secret agency, NERV, to manage the anti-Angel strategy.

With Neo-Tokyo 3 in their sights, the Angels slowly advance upon the city...but suddenly a spaceship comes hurtling down from the sky above the Angels: the Sky Lynx! Out of the ship emerges warriors of the far-off planet Cybertron. They've come to investigate after noticing an unusual energy reading.

"We can't let a disaster like the Second Impact occur on this planet."
"What?! What are these monsters?!"

The shocked Cybertron convoy sets its sights on an enemy much bigger than themselves.

Now how did they have Second Impact without knowing what Angels are?





And it would be funny if Optimus transformed into Unit-01.

So, in what style are they crossing over, just to double check? Manga? Anime? Other?

Thank god it was just a toy crossover.

A real crossover? Two words, bad Idea!

Optimus in Eva-01's color scheme is enough for me already based on the promo artwork. I see going beyond that without getting ridiculous as a challenge.
