So, you're saying this line is going to have a ton of retools. No dip, but do you honestly believe these three Predacons are the only ones that are ever being released?

I think it's gonna ultimately be about 50/50 new molds and retools, assuming some of the new molds are new Autobots and Decepticons, and not just Predacons, and then assume again that about half of the new figures will be Predacons. I think ultimately that gives about 6 or 8 new Predacons spread across the 4 major size classes, discounting dupes like Commander Predaking and Voyager Predaking.

Yeah, others are reporting similar cases. This is gonna be interesting seeing as how dar kand mature this show is in its tone and violence when compared to most other children's cartoons. Since Vortexx is censoring JLU and DBZ Kai, I expect Prime to follow in suit with the censors going nuts with it.

I think it's great that it's getting wide exposure (I say wide because CW is usually a local channel and not cable or satellite based), but if it's chopped and edited, it's not worth watching. Part of it's impact is how dark and violent it is.

Still... Saban + Saturday mornings + Transformers = Childhood all over again. WIN.

Fixed. ;)

I say this due to RiD being the only TF cartoon Saban had worked on.

I was wondering what if Megatron brought Optimus back to life with dark energon in season 3? I mean they did have a Zombie prime in season 3 of G1 so there is presidence. Also it would allow Megatron access to the Primes Weapons

It's an interesting concept. Already done by this point, but it would leave room for Ultra Magnus to run in here and replace Optimus.

It would be nice, but do you really think they'll decide to replace Optimus?

He already has two confirmed toys, and ..well, he keeps coming back. In every continuity.
Always.

It would be nice to have him dead, for once.

It's not like Optimus is going to stay offline. Why not have a temporary replacement?

Who sAYS Optimus is even dead? I sure wasn't convinced by that ending. Death is death in this show, and Optimus is too crucial a marketing device character to just kill off.

Optimus has a way of not staying dead however.
Seriously, name a continuity in which he didn't die. I think RiD would be the only one, and he very nearly died at the end, saved only by some last minute, off-camera deus ex machina.

On my part, it's wishful thinking.
I'd like him to be dead, or non-operational in some way.

They managed to bring Orion back in the current IDWverse (and Megatron), I'd like him to disappear here.

This show is different, though. Death is never sugar-coated nor reversible in this show, and both it and its creators have been adamant about that point. No character who has died in this show has ever undone their death.

Ergo, I highly doubt Optimus died in that explosion. He's unconscious, yeah, but likely just in critical stasis.

I think Optimus should be in a coma-like state for about half the season, like Megatron was, and bring in Ultra Magnus to fill in. And then keep him on once Optimus revives.

none of the existing season 4 info makes any mention of Starscream returning to the story.
