Alright, I'm really excited. Whatever it is, it must be awesome. A Beast Era re-imagining with better voice acting and new characters could be really neat.

While I'd love them to pull a Beast Wars set in the future of the Aligned Continuity, taking cues from BW but making it something new and fresh, nothing Hasbro has done has convinced me that anyone there has any love for Beast Wars anymore. I'm betting this ties into season 3 of TF Prime, you know, like Armada's Powerlinx line, or Energon's Battle for Energon. Aren't the Dinobots supposed to show up in Season 3, and possibly this Thundertron guy?

Better voice acting? That's impossible.

Anything's possible. I'd be happy with anything, really, as long as it doesn't contradict any history of the Aligned family to a great extent. We haven't had any full confirmation on either of them (Although the Dinobots are likely to come to Season 3). They won't confirm anything so that they can force us to read the Rage of Dinobots comic and find out.

Can't read the PDF/Google docs thing, but I'm not impressed, so far, if it IS Prime. I don't want to buy Thundertron. I will if I have to. Bleh.

Looks like I'll be able to skip collecting for a little while.

I've never had any interest in beast type transformers. Kibble is bad enough on geometrically shaped robots let alone ones with animal arms and tails hanging off.
Looking for the Megatron gun (or just the stock) that came with 20th anniversary MP Optimus Prime.

I swear, this will be great for the toyline. Not only is it possible that we'll get Breakdown (a new mold), Shockwave, Hardshell/Insecticon, and Smokescreen (hopefully a new mold, or extensive re-engineering of Knock Out), but we'd probably get Prime toys of the Dinobots! I totally want to see this show make a turn towards Beast Transformers, as long as they don't become great big shell-formers.

Might give me an ulterior motive to buy Thundertron. ;)

I have zero interest in a beast wars/machines/ies series and will pretty much kill off collecting for a while.

Third party would rain supreme more then ever if that were to happen. I'm sure they wouldn't stop making vehicle type Transformers (H&TT), so long as they keep away from the gnarly looking Trans Tech look most fans will still support it.

EDIT: If it's third season of Prime I can deal with that. It seems like the general idea is Dinobots & the like. I'm in.

Sorry I should have been clearer, I ment his thoughts on Thundertron.


I'm past Beastformers. I was big into them for awhile, mainly during the Beast Era, and I like the TM2 redecos for the RID/Car Robots line (2000/2001), but once we got back into vehicular TFs, I drifted from beasts, pretty much altogether.

Outside of some figures like Cybertron Scourge and Snarl, I'm not a big fan on 'em, anymore. Even Dinobots. (Well, to be more precise, especially Dinobots.) I do have the Animated trio of dinos, which I bought partially as a matter of completeness. (Those are up for sale, btw, people.)

I'll only collect Thundertron if he's part of the on show cast. If he's a toy only figure, he's not getting picked up. I only collect on show toys, now. I did it with the Bayverse, I do it now. I only caved on Animated Oil Slick because he finally showed up on the show. Fortunately, he turned out to be a pretty good figure. Thundertron looks like he'd be the complete opposite of what I want.

On the flip side, he looks like he'd have the least kibble and weird shoulder pads out of all of the Voyagers in the line. Go figure.

If it's true and it's Prime Season 3, this fills me with hope that Hasbro will continue the line, at least.

If it's a new Beast Wars series, it's a meh that will save me some money.

And if it's fake or non-TF-related, it's hardly even on my radar.

Thundertron's deal is that he's from the second novel and is going to be in the Asian TF: Prime MMO game.

No word on his being in the show yet, but with Beast Hunters being season three, it's possible. ;)
