CraveOnline has posted a promotional still and clip for tomorrow's new clip of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters "Chain of Command". We've mirrored the image and description below. It appears Miko will be suiting up in the Apex Armor! The clip can be view by clicking here, or view the embed below.

The official Transformers facebook page has also shared a promotional image from the episode.

Re: Transformers: Prime Chain of Command Promo


It's the final season of Transformers Prime, and things are getting feral with the threat of the Predacon, a beastial machine creature that Starscream is looking to control for his own sinister purposes. Also, as you can see from the image above, Miko's got her own suit of armor. That's just asking for trouble.

The F*** is with all you Miko-haters?! Can't go a "BLOODY" thread without someone complaining about her!! JUST PLEASE, **** ***!!!

(Ahem)
Back on topic: I'm just dying to see Magnus' reaction when he finds out Miko has stowed away (Did I use that phrase right?).
And, well, with Apex Armor she might even earn Magnus' respect.

Okay, so maybe that was a bit of longshot.

I like how they are keeping the Magnus and Wreckers connection. Even though his personality doesn't technically make him one in spirit, he's still their commander.

And I really love how grown people get so hung up over little animated (and sometimes plastic) girls in the TF fandom. :grin: It makes me laugh. :P

Miko, Bulk, Jacky and Magnus all in one episode. They'd have to kill one of them for me to not enjoy this! :michaelbay:

On another note, I like how that still is reminiscent of that shot of Team Prime from the opening title sequence, but Wrecker-style.

I am in solidarity with this point. One episode is fine, so Miko can get it out of her system and complete her character arc and then we never have to deal with that crap again.

I still think it's a terrible waste with only 13 episodes to work with, but if it provides character resolution, then, ehh, what the hell, fine.

Okay, okay. I can be peaceful. We can all be frinds. Okay?
(phew)

I still find all the hate towards her rather unnececarily overwhelming, though.
Writing all that with a grin on my face. Can't go without some comic relief.

The only Autobot there that I like is Wheeljack. I NEVER liked Ultra Magnus. Not in G1 and not in Prime. Bulkhead is just... meh. Miko... to all the humans; I say die already and save Megatron the effort it would take to lift his finger to kill you. I wish the Decepticons had opened those containers back on Cybertron.

Looks to me like they just cloned a new Predaking, which sucks since I wanted the original clone to become his own character and break free of his icy prison.

Upon rewatching a previous trailer for this episode (after another user on another board informed me that it might not be another clone), there's a shot of what looks like the first Predaking clone breaking free of the ice, so this could be the same guy after all. Thank goodness.

I still hopes he transforms, though. I hate when Hasbro makes TF toys that never actually transform in the fiction the toys are based from.

Off the top of my head, none of the Seacons or the Sparkdash ever transformed out of their beast modes in Masterforce, nor did any of the Dinoforce turn into their inner robot monster forms in Victory (they only transformed into their robot modes, Pretender shell modes, and and combiner piece modes), and several guest characters in Animated (like Arcee) never transformed, but there may also be a bunch more other recent examples that I'm forgetting.

I know you've already changed your mind on this point, but I'd be remiss if I didn't let Gendo handle things.

"Just clone her and throw out the injured version."


Though, given how the 'Cons have huge stockpiles of Energon and CNA samples of their various Predacons, theoretically Shockwave could create a massive, MASSIVE army of duplicates and just overwhelm the Autobots.

Suspension of disbelief... becoming harder to bear...

An army, by definition, is just a standing force. Presumably the Vehicons have some form of military training, but they get routinely slaughtered even with significant numerical advantage against the Autobots.

Predaking, by contrast, took on two Wreckers, and arguably some of the most powerful Autobots, and was pretty clearly dominant before their match was interrupted. We can make arguments about new toys in Transformers fiction here, but in the case of Predaking, Shockwave, and Optimus' new form, these are characters explicitly demonstrated as being more powerful than the average Cybertronian. Within the show itself, the evidence suggests an untrained animal is more powerful than a legion of military troops.

Logically, a legion of untrained animals, while uncoordinated and needlessly destructive, would thus be more effective against the Autobots. The Decepticons have the resources to do it, so why not make multiple duplicates of powerful Predacons, point them at the Autobots, and clean up the mess after the 'Bots are just Energon smears on the ground?

Right, thanks. Knew there was more.

Oh, and the Grand Mal from Beast Machines only went from giant head mode to ship mode, but never assumed the robot mode its toy had (which we briefly got a glimpse of in wireframe form in one episode of the show).

And Movie Scorponok stayed in beast mode in the films.

An army, by definition, is just a standing force. Presumably the Vehicons have some form of military training, but they get routinely slaughtered even with significant numerical advantage against the Autobots.

Predaking, by contrast, took on two Wreckers, and arguably some of the most powerful Autobots, and was pretty clearly dominant before their match was interrupted. We can make arguments about new toys in Transformers fiction here, but in the case of Predaking, Shockwave, and Optimus' new form, these are characters explicitly demonstrated as being more powerful than the average Cybertronian. Within the show itself, the evidence suggests an untrained animal is more powerful than a legion of military troops.

Logically, a legion of untrained animals, while uncoordinated and needlessly destructive, would thus be more effective against the Autobots. The Decepticons have the resources to do it, so why not make multiple duplicates of powerful Predacons, point them at the Autobots, and clean up the mess after the 'Bots are just Energon smears on the ground?


How do you know that Shockwave hasn't trained Predaking?

I stand by what I said though. Large numbers just equals a mob. A mob may be able to inflict a great deal of property damage, but that doesn't make it a army, an army has focus and discipline.

I don't, but the window for this to have taken place is rather slim, given the time frame from when Shockwave woke/activated Predaking to returning with him to Darkmount. The only possible "training" Predaking could've received would be from some mental prompts Shockwave programmed into the microchip the Preds have. There is no indication that is the case.

From wiktionary:

army
noun; (plural armies)

1. A large, highly organized military force, concerned mainly with ground (rather than air or naval) operations.

(I assume this is the definition you're utilizing. However-)

3. (figuratively) A large group of people working toward the same purpose.

4.(figuratively) A large group of social animals working toward the same purpose.

5.(figuratively) Any multitude.


So, the terminology still fits. A mob of Predacons would still constitute an 'army'. And a more effective 'army' than the Vehicons.

Anyone else notice that they changed their catchphrase, as well as the network's name?

"It could happen... Only on The Hub!" which is now, "Transformers Prime Beast Hunters... on Hub Network!"

I wonder if they cut the "only" part because it's no longer just on The Hub?

Interesting. Nice find.
