^ Who needs innovative and fresh ideas when you can just shit all over established childhood memories/franchises for cash-grabs? Is Michael Bay producing the new series?
You speak as if the original wasn't just some mediocre, by-the-numbers, 80s giant robot anime. Even SRWW, couldn't make it anything more than just there, and the best moment of the series was when what's-his-face came back to life, because he didn't need to in Voltron due to only going away for a while in some portal offscreen. A case of one asspull mitigating another.
Also, Michael Bay would never touch a TV series unless its live action. You can't objectify female cartoons. They have to be real, live, flesh and blood females for the dudebros heroes to rescue/bang/discard for a younger/hotter model. What are you? Some kind of animefreak69?
On that note, what I'd rather see Michael Bay produce is a Duke Nukem Movie. It'd be a marriage made in 'murican heaven.
