Seems like that title would've been more appropriate for the Japanese dub of TF Animated.

Maybe there's a tie-in to the game?

Oh wait game, of course, they're telegraphing that Beast Hunters will indeed be the last season via Monopoly reference:
Transformers Prime will NOT pass GO->...

So the silhouetted Generations Scourge next to Grimlock, that's supposed to be Senator Ratbat, right?

When there's trouble you know who to call... Transformers!
From their HQ they can see it all... Transformers!
When there's Deceps on the attack,
You can rest knowing they got your back,
Cuz when the world needs heroes on patrol...
Transformers GO!

With their transformations they unite... Transformers!
Never met a villain that they liked... Transformers!
They got the bad Cons on the run.
They never stop till the job gets done.
Cuz when the world is losing all control...
Transformers GO!

One, two, three, four, GO!
Transformers

:P

Interesting that the Autobots and Decepticons have "Hunter" in front of their names. I wonder what the gimmick will be. It does acknowledge the characters coming from Prime and the "NEW Style"

In case it was missed, the toy line will launch in April.

Japanese Transformers names have always been...odd.

I'm interested to see whether they will continue with the "model kit" approach though.

Hearing this makes me wonder what we should expect from them, and what kind of season Beast Hunters will become. Because to be honest, the last time they made a change to a series name... It was Beast Machines. And atop of becoming "Beast Wars Return," it became a Satellite Station exclusive. Then again, it was put out years later and the toys were Toys"R"Us exclusives. So there is a 50/50 chance that will not happen, even though the season/series is short.

As for this news... It excites me! I mean it may mean that they will go from what happens in PRIME and actually give us, the fans of their Arms Micron line, a sequel... Kind of like Beast Wars II. :KREMZEEK: They have the potential and also have Lio Convoy (as Leo Prime) there. So all I can say is that I am excite for a chance to hear about that. That, and maybe a Beast Saga-like version of ALL SPARK. But that is me being a fanboy of their stuff right now. :lol:

What about their renaming of Transformers: Prime into being "Chou Robot Seimeitai Transformers: Prime" (Super Robot Lifeform Transformers: Prime)? Yeah, they kept the "Prime" part, but the "Chou Robot Seimeitai" part was new to the title, since it wasn't in the English name. And, not every Japanese series name has used the "Chou Robot Seimeitai" part. ;)

How about this then? The point you are trying to make is based on the fact that Takara announced that CarRobots was not going to be a new G1 series. Hence the lack of the moniker. And that the same was said when they collaborated with Hasbro when it came to the Micron/Unicron Trilogy. Yet, forgot to mention that the addition of the moniker dates back to Beast Wars, and the fact that they used it as a way of saying that this is their version of the franchise... And their version is more appropriate for their own target audience. Which was a practice completed in 2004, when Beast Machines (as "Beast Wars Returns") made its first and only real TV appearance on satellite only channel network MobaHO! - TAKARAND (note: corrected that error) before re-airing on Cartoon Network Japan. But even then, it was still edited for the target Japanese audience.

Hence when they announced this toyline with a new moniker, which could easily be "Super Robot Lifeform Transformers Prime: GO!" in the end, we all know that they have access to the planned events for season 3. But seriously, 13 episodes? It sounds like a series too short to promote a toyline on TV, hence the exclusive approach that they can revive. Meanwhile, starting a new series starring Leo Prime and his own team of Autobots, versus Decepticons that want to both revive and serve Unicron. (Speculations, but mostly based on his Arms Micron profile.) Plus, it would help cap things off by having the movie be part of a double-feature, with the other part being an event that has both Leo and Optimus teaming up for a brief event. :-?

So tell me... Would you prefer hoping that this decision may mean you get to see Lio Convoy/Leo Prime return to the small screen? Or the point you tried making here? :-? ;)

So, will Go! still feature microns? I was at TF source and the pics they are using for Japanese Beast Hunters looks to have the US toy weapons. It could just be a place holder but I'm curious how long they are going to ride the Micron gimmick out. I personally like the Microns.

They were a cheap into to Japanese Transformers and I'm definitely going to start buying some Takara versions from here on out. With US prices going up so much the hit doesn't seem as hard now.

It doesn't look like TF:Go! while features Arms Microns, but don't be surprised if they do return again as store give-aways.
