TFNation 2019 Presents Reading For Transformers Animated Season 4!
Via some cryptic and clever tweets over the last couple of days, TFNation have revealed that, for their 2019 convention, they will be presenting a live performance of the original script for the pilot episode of the (sadly) never made Season 4 of Transformers Animated!
It all started with a cryptic tweet for TFNation’s mascot, Genny.
Brunt somewhat reminds me of a Mark V Guardian droid…
— Genny @ TFNation (@TFNGenny) July 3, 2019
Which comments on how Brunt looks very similar in design to the Mark V Guardian Droid seen in the old Marvel Generation 1 comics.
Swiftly followed by TFNation’s own twitter, posting several tweets stating ’10 years’, ‘2 months’, ’25 days’. All of which were just as quickly interpreted as the length of time since the final broadcast date of Transformers Animated, 23rd of May 2009, and the first day of TFNation 2019, 16th of August 2019.
Then, they tweeted this.
