Yes, there were definitely rumours about the live action/CGI mix, particularly off the back of that little demo someone put together that had quite a lot of people convinced it was doable. It probably is in production somewhere, given the success of the G1 character comics. I'd love to see a series animated in that style, be it live action or not. They really have brought it bang up to date and they've even managed to pull off merging the comics and the cartoon which is quite an achievement.
