I hope Smokescreen dies because he's not even remotely a Smokescreen, he's a bloody Hot Shot/Hot Rod/Cheetor/etc.

Really hope Prime does end with season 3 and we get a new, better show.

I don't know what to think anymore. To me, he sounded like season three was it, but then you have Jeffery Combs saying there IS a fourth season. Then of course there's the whole "Beast Hunters" thing, which hasn't been "officially" announced by Hasbro, even though it seems incredibly likely to be Transformers Prime- related. UGH. Lets hope NYCC explains some of these things :SICK:

Maybe Beast Hunters is season four, or a direct sequel to Prime, but with season 3 having a finale that could work as a series ender, but isn't. Remember, he said he couldn't confirm anything that's to come after season 3 (and Beast Hunters wasn't brought up in the interview). All he said was that season 3 is shorter in order to reach the magic number of 65 episodes. Doesn't mean there won't be more. While 65 was their goal, they could go beyond their goal with another new season or sequel series. ;)

As he said Season 3 was the end of Prime, and then later said there is a fourth season, my theory is that Jeffery Combs is leaving the cast after Season 3. Ratchet's death? Wouldn't be the first time. ;)

Maybe he'll get replaced by First Aid?

Image

or a beast themed medic... or engineer?

I think it is going to happen. We've got the Rage of Dinobots comic bridging the second and third seasons, and I noticed that the Insecticons are slowly and steadily replacing the Vehicons. :-? ;)

So far, has there been any explanation as to how the Insecticon hive manage to end up on earth? The episode that introduced them left me so confused.

Nothing so far. Maybe season 3 will tell us.

No, we don't. It's either Spring or Fall of 2013, that's about all we know.

I can make an approximate guess, based on all the information given so far.

Megatron wants to find the Autobots but is too lazy to hunt them down himself, so he hires Shockwave's Predacons, probably bounty hunters, to do it for him.

Arcee, Bulkhead, Bumblebee, and Smokescreen are shipped off all across the U.S. When the reunite, Ratchet isn't with them. This is because he left Team Prime (he has no hope left), attended to a severely wounded Wheeljack and runs off with him. Together, Ratchet and Wheeljack find the Dinobot's leader, Grimlock, and the duo aid their beastly friend in finding the rest of his team here on Earth.

Meanwhile, Ultra Magnus (crashed on Earth while looking for the Dinobots) takes the four stranded Autobots (and their human friends) in as his own. When they learn of the Predacons hunting them, Magnus gives all the Autobots upgrades from his crashed ship so they can defend themselves.

And Optimus returns at the end to advertise his new toy.

The End.


8) :P

Yeah, Prime's number one for me, right in front of Animated (I actually like it now) and G1.

For me, it's Beast Wars first, then Animated, then a tie between Rescue Bots and Masterforce, and then Prime is somewhere fighting with another equal tie between Beast Machines and (my guilty pleasure) Robots in Disguise for fourth place (which the aforementioned BM/RiD tie already possessed before Prime came along).

G1's a little lower. After the above comes Cybertron, then The Headmasters, and then G1 in a tie with both Armada and Victory. Below that three-way tie is the Playskool Go-Bots cartoon from 2003-2005, and finally Energon at the very bottom.
