Ben Jones is a storyboard artist and animation director, and is one of the episode directors on Transformers Animated. Compared to previous shows he worked on, there are more robots that turn into cars.
Jones didn't have as many Transformers toys as he wanted growing up, but he had a few. He also seems to be a fan of Bizarro, and apparently wrote an episode of The Ripping Friends, but we'll try not to hold the latter against him. Much.

- He did the pencils for the original Transformers Animated promo poster, with various other Transformers Animated staff members inking and coloring it.
- According to Derrick J. Wyatt, Jones actually has a collection of various "evil superhero" shirts beyond the Bizarro one, including one of Professor Zoom, the Reverse Flash. Wonder if he's managed to pick up that Shattered Glass Optimus Prime shirt from BotCon 2008?
