"Darkmount, NV". The original Hub press release made a typo.

Probably not the best idea to premiere this episode during the first round of the ncaa tournament. As much as I love Transformers and this show, it is taking a back seat to watching the Tarheels.

While I thought tonight's episode was fantastic and well above par for a cartoon about a children's toy, I thought it was really odd that the episode was not left as a one parter since what we were left with didn't even introduce the "Beast Hunters". Leaving with Shockwave as the cliffhanger without introducing the "Beast Hunters" seemed like it really missed the whole point of this season's marketing as well as the toy line.

My almost 4 year old daughter summed it up best at the end of the episode when she asked where the dragons were that I had been promising her. "Next week" seems like an eternity to a kid.

Yes, I'm aware that there are more episodes online, but up until now, every TF: Prime episode I've watched was hi-def, and I don't believe in stopping now.

I was really hoping to see Predaking's entrance as the cliffhanger. By himself, Shockwave has only been seen once thus far in TF: Prime and so his entrance was overplayed for a character that many may not have seen if they had missed that one episode.

Overall though, I enjoyed the premier and I look forward to the following episodes.

I'm surprised how there's barely any discussion going on about this episode here. I know several of us already saw it online last week, but I didn't think it was that many. Or at least, that something as hyped up as this isn't generating all that much discussion here. :???:

Either way, here's a HD YouTube upload:

I'm surprised as well, considering my comments I posted earlier in this thread where the Beast Hunters were missing from the first episode of "Beast Hunters". They should've have edited the episode to accommodate all of the Beast Hunters hype or left it as a "movie" premiere so that the Beast Hunters element was retained in the episode. Shockwave, while fun to see in his latest incarnation, should not have been the first episode's "cliffhanger" moment or big reveal.

Perhaps I should front page this to help generate some additional interest.

Out of curiosity (and I'm sure this question may stem from my having already seen 53-55, but I'll risk asking anyway) when you mention "the Beast Hunters", what are you referring to, exactly? The Predacons themselves, or something else? :-?

The Predacons, who are the actual Beast Hunters. They're absent from the first episode.

Ah, okay.

I ask for two reasons. One I cannot say since it may refer to spoilers.

The other is because people seem to have differing opinions on what the term "Beast Hunters" refers to. Like, some think it could be the Predacons, as in they're "hunters who are beasts". Others think it refers to the Autobots being "hunters hunting beasts", thinking of the Autobots hunting the Preds.

Doesn't help that that Toy Story-esque commercial from a before referred to the Autobots as the "Beast Hunters", helping complicate matters.

Let's hope that the show itself eventually sorts this all out.

In either scenario, the Predacons are absent from the first episode. Without introducing Predaking, it seems like the ball was dropped with tying the first episode into the title of the show.

Very true.

Similarily, Armada's first "The Unicron Battles" episode (41, "Depart") didn't have Unicron in it. ;)

How'd you feel about the previous subline imprint cartoon title changes?

Like:
  • Beast Machines: Battle for the Spark
  • Armada: The Unicron Battles
  • And... I think that's it.
Yes, I know there were others for toys (Energon: The Powerlinx Battles, Cybertron: Primus Unleashed, etc.), but their cartoons didn't use their subline imprint names.

Was the "Battle for the Spark" imprint used in Beast Machines? I don't recall it ever being used for the TV show.

I'm fine with them using "Beast Hunters" on the show. Just seems silly that the first episode doesn't directly tie-in with the marketing and only serves to continue to build up to this season's theme. I actually blame this more on the Hub than anything for failing to keep the episode as a movie length introduction. Ah well, at least the episode was awesome. Just an odd ending after waiting since October to see Predaking introduced.

Happy to see Shockwave. Hopefully he's a logical monster in this rendition. I was quite impressed to see the devastation upon Jasper, even if everyone got out alive; still pretty heavy for a kid's cartoon.

I'm defintely in agreement that the Preds should have at least been alluded to in the first episode, I hope they don't become just a footnote to some "Arcee and her pet human" show.
Something memorable here.

I loved it. They did a good job of building drama about the whereabouts and condition of the Autobots. The shot of Optimus under the rubble was fantastic. And what about Ratchet? Is he dead? They left that pretty ambiguous.

The shots of the burning rubble, Darkmount, Megatron sitting on a throne and a decimated Jasper, NV reminded me of Earth in the Regeneration 1 comic. Pretty heavy imagery for a kids show.

Other highlights were Arachnid being recovered from the wreckage of the Autotbot base and the recovery of the Forge of Solis Prime and the Apex Armor. They've been foreshadowing Arachnid's return for awhile. Looking forward to it.

I had no problem with the Shockwave ending and the lack of Predacons. They have to show the consequences from last season's finale and build some drama before pivoting in a new direction. Besides, Shockwave is the one who finds the Predicons according to the teaser shown at NYCC. It only makes sense to bring him in first.

We only EXPECT to see the Predicons out of the gate because of the toy line and the lame Beast Hunters branding in the show title. No one would be complaining if the Beast Hunters angle was a well-kept secret.

They only show predakings next episode and only in dragon mode



A good reason people might not be in this thread is because they are afraid of spoilers.

Ahem.

How about mentioning in the thread that there will be no spoilers or "HEY SPOILER COMING!" so that we don't walk into grenades like this one.

Indeed it was. Though, it's quite saddening that the DVDs didn't recycle its opening. :-(

I remember my grade school self getting very giddy upon seeing the opening credits have Garry Chalk say the words "Beast Machines! Battle for the Spark!(-ark!)(-ark!)" when the new logo popped up the end of the opening for the first time. The subitle appeared in a horizontal lighting effect spread from center outward. They also added a verbal "Transformers" spoken by Chalk right at the very beginning where the camera zoomed in on Cybertron, but nothing else was changed beyond those two additions.

Although, the only thing I do not remember about the "Battle for the Spark" opening was in which episode it was first used. I don't believe it was first used in the first episode of season 2 (14, "Fallout"), so I'm leaning toward the "Sparkwar" three-parter as being where it may have debuted. I'm fairly certain it was used all the way to the last episode, though.

I also recall a Fox Kids sweepstakes commercial referring to the show by that full subline imprint name (with their also offering Rattrap and Blast Punch Optimus Primal toys to 1000 others who didn't win the grand prize of whatever it was they were offering). The commercial was speaking of the show first before talking about the contest, so it did say "Beast Machines: Battle for the Spark" in reference to the show.

The first lines of this commercial when something like "Beast Machines: Battle for the Spark continues!..." which sounds to me a bit like it aired shortly after the final episode or something, though it is still possible for it to have aired before episode 26 aired. Either way, it must have been circa late-2000/early-2001, after the end of season 1 and before RiD's debut.

I keep this stuff in memory because loved loved LOVED Fox Kids to death as a child and cherish all that I remember of it. :x

You did see episode 43, right?

Just Negare wrote:I'm defintely in agreement that the Preds should have at least been alluded to in the first episode, I hope they don't become just a footnote to some "Arcee and her pet human" show.
Don't worry. ;)

Then again, not sure if that's even really a spoiler. :P
