Would you think optimus will pass the matrix to smokescreen?

sure seems to indicate Optimus is dying, but I suspect a red herring here. too easy, plus Hasbro knows by now that the first rule of bot club is...

"You Don't Kill Optimus Prime(permanently)"

the second rule of bot club is

"You Don't Kill Optimus Prime(permanently)"

My guess is that there is a reformat in the works

I do hope we get Ultra Magnus on the show tho to go with the toy and the rage of the dinobots tie-in

Bravo!

I'm not surprised OP survived, but I figured they'd keep us in suspense a while longer. Same with Jackie.

General Steves are back! :KREMZEEK:

Holy crap, Predaking is huge! :shock: Gonna have to get the ultimate model for that show accurate scale.

22 days can't pass fast enough.

7 episodes out of circulation. See him back mid-season. Rebuilt just two episodes prior to three part season finale. Roughly 9 eps until new body debuts.

BY PRIMUS THAT IS AWESOME.

I mean, f'real! Holy mackerel that is so sweeeeeet!

... Here's hoping that Smokescreen becomes another Rodimus Prime... I don't want to dislike a character voiced by Nolan North. ;)

So he's putting "the fate of his kind" above the fate of just one? Would have been a good mindset to have back on Cybertron before he screwed it to save a few kids. I get why he had to, but its made this scene's wording feel a bit out of place.

Tihs is just wrong, i thought optimus was tougher than this, but the trailer makes it seems that he was too badly crushed by the rubble and badly damaged.

The episode writers must've been desperate to find a way to "kill the old prime and introduce the new reborn prime later" later instead of just upgrading him after being rescued from the rubble of the old lair.

Hm... Is there really going to be a new prime? Somehow I doubt it. Still, it does look epic. This should be fun. :)

Wow, this looks awesome! My guess is Optimus will tell Smokescreen to take the Matrix and pass it to the next Prime, but given Smokescreen's general disregard for following orders and doing what he thinks is right instead he will do something to save/revive Optimus instead and the result will be Optimus in a newly reformatted/upgraded body (sort of along the lines of what Sari did in TF Animated). Or maybe that is just wishful thinking ;)

Pretty cool, I´m excited about Beast Hunters, but the thing that makes me happy the most is that the creators are trying to pull off something, know what I mean? they have something in mind, an idea, a concept, I bet this season will go to places that we would´ve never predict.

I don't know about anyone else, but for some reason to me this held more meaning. My gut tells me line is about, maybe not just a new Prime, but a new "Transformers: Prime" based series. Pick a character to focus on then (Smokescreen? Bulkhead and Wheeljack reforming the Wreckers? Who knows...) follow him through his exploits. AS for a new Prime literally, I have this other feeling that Jack will somehow be involved. Just a weird hunch.

Next series: a perfect way to follow up and introduce TONS of new characters to sell- Transformers: Rescue. The Autobots and Decepticons leave Earth to search for more of their kind among the stars. (random thought)

The perfect set up for Ultra Magnus to arrive. If "Rage of the Dinobots" is any indication, he is coming.

RAcast wrote:All right guys and gals, let's start the betting! How long will Prime stay dead? :lol:
I'll say none. :P He'll probably just go into stasis lock to keep him online for as long as possible, so he can come back with a new body without dying. Otherwise, they'd be cheapening death by having a dead guy come back to life, which is something the show's creators have been firmly against doing.

Considering how Cybertron was already dead long before the show even began, there was nothing to lose back when he saved the Earth at the cost of the Omega Lock.

Really? 'Cause the base blew the hell up on his ass. Normally, anyone inside of the blast radius would be extra crispy bacon.

At least he appears to be in better condition than Megatron was after the Space Bridge explosion, since he's aware of his surroundings and he can communicate.

Tougher than this? Thougher than THIS?! He survived the blast that destroyed his whole base with just one shot!
What do you think he is? OMEGA SUPREME?!
Scrap that last line.

It's not the rubble that NEARLY killed him. It was the blast that was seen miles away.

PrymeStriker, sir, could at least try to find some other videos other than MLP? At least in the major TF topics? Please? If it's in the General and Non-TF boards by all means post away!

Anyhow, how is there supposed to be a "new" Prime if Optimus is the last of them.

He could pass the rank and the Matrix onto the person he deems worthy of being the next Prime. Why Jack was previously considered an "Honorary Prime" back at the start of season 2.

Don't forget, Optimus wasn't a Prime back when he was Orion Pax. He succeeded Sentinel Zeta Prime just like the next Prime (when and if there is one) will succeed him, whoever that may be. ;)

I'll bet you my left arm this will be the story of the "new Prime."

Optimus passes the Matrix to Ultra Magnus.
Ultra Magnus, now a Prime, uses the Forge to repair Optimus.
Magnus gives the Matrix back to Optimus.
Optimus kicks ass and sells toys.


The End. >:oP

Colour me DEFINITELY interested.
The trailer has some good editing, especially with the different human-bot pairings scattered.
Here's waiting for the 23rd (as I won't be able to see it on the 22nd myself)!

I'm afraid it would be more the other way around, with Smokescreen wearing OP's corpse as necro-armor in order to instill fear in the Decepticons. OP doesn't seem the type to go for the monster truck design, after all. Smokescreen? He'd be all over it.

It's more to do with the length of the face and the smaller width of the chin. The Beast Hunters Prime seems to have a longer face than his predecessor, and a thinner chin - attributes more in line with Smokescreen. You have to ignore the respective "helmets" of each 'bot. It doesn't hurt the shape of Beast Hunters Prime looks younger and "softer" to me than that of Prime Prime - more attributes of Smokescreen.

Plus, if you take away the red parts of Smokescreen's headcrest and leave the white "Prime" part and add Prime's ear antennas.......looks damn near identical and CAN"T BE UNSEEN ONCE YOU DO IT!

Plus, who's to say Optimus won't put Smokescreen in charge so he can go all out murder-rage on Megs and Predaking?
Re: New Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Trailer - "A New Prime" (1468346)

I can see why you would think so because of the chin, but the nose is much bulkier, the mouth is closer to the nose, and the eyes are farther apart in comparison to Smokescreen.

This trailer gives me high hopes for Beast Hunters! In one word: EPIC! The serious tone continues and the stakes are even higher than before. I also really like how the 'Bots are separated and will have to work to come together. However, I do hope they come together sooner rather than later since there's only 13 episodes.

I agree with most of you as well that they seem to be strongly hinting at more Autobots joining with Team Prime. I really hope this is true and that (again) this happens sooner rather than later.

I guess my biggest fear is that everything will be rushed this season and good plot points will not be very developed because of the brevity of the season. It feels like they're introducing a lot and have promised a lot but I don't know how feasible that is in 13 episodes. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

I think its pretty obvious that Optimus will recover. But as for the whole Smokescreen as leader idea, I don't think so.
Seems more likely to me that Magnus will take over part time as prime. Why else would we be getting two Magnus with the forge instead of his own hammer? And BH Optimus Prime does have a faceplate. It's the toy that doesn't.

Well, I took that into account, compared face between BH Prime, FE Prime and Smokescreen and the only one w/ a stub between the eyes that could possibly end up on BH Prime is SMOKESCREEN......OMG..........then again, I may be reading too far into it.
