Doesn't really give anything new because of the episode, but still we haven't gotten an extended synopsis since Season 2.

Ultra Magnus is TWO words Hasbro :lol: This season is getting really good, but it really sucks that it's a short one.
Is the TV Movie thing on top of Episode 13, or is it just Episodes 10-13 combined?

I see on a lot of fanfics people making Ultra Magnus one word also lol but I believe it's supposed to be an epilogue so on top of the 13 episodes.

I hope the secret isn't that Predaking [spoiler]has a robot mode[/spoiler]

I dunno about the rest of you, but I wouldn't be shocked by a [spoiler]transformer that transformed 8-}[/spoiler]

Prime is easily one of my fave TF shows, if not THE fave TF show. It's a LOT better than G1 in a lot of ways, and the writing is waaaaaaay above that of BW.

That said, I'm equally bummed to see the show end so soon (before its... PRIME?! :grin: )... but I'm even more concerned about the follow up. How the hell do you follow up PRIME????

I'd really like for Hasbro to consider a CG Prime MOVIE in theaters. It'd be nice to vote with my wallet and say, "Hey, thanks for Michael Bay and all, but... ehhh, PRIME IS BETTER." >:oP

Up until now, there hasn't ever been any real indication in the show that the Predacon is a Transformer. It hasn't even been called "Predaking" yet.

All the show has ever shown us about this creature is that it's the clone of an ancient Cybertronian dragon-like species and has shown hints of having a bit of a higher intelligence than it's let on to have.

Tell me truthfully, if it were not for the existence of the toys of Predaking and the other Predacons, would you truly believe from the first moment we see the beast that it were a Transformers and not just another breed of Cybertronian wildlife?

Sadly the toys do exist, so really it still dulls any big 'secret' :shock: Yeah the show is aimed at kids. Yeah the toys are aimed at kids. One fatal flaw though, Kids are not stupid. We know this because once upon a time we were kids.

But, good point. Though in all honesty, surely you would suspect it to be the case. More of a 'I knew it' or 'I thought as much' kinda moment rather than 'Holy smoke! What a secret to have held! Well played Hasbro, ya got me! :APPLAUSE: '
Besides, I was just having a bit of fun. ;) The big reveal may be nothing to do with this, and now I've written too much on a topic made in jest :KREMZEEK:

How they would compete with Prime was a question concerning me too. I could swear that they said the same makers of Prime would be doing the next show as well. But that's if I heard right.

I think by "secret" they are mean that Predaking's "in-universe" secret is that he's capable of transformation. Yes?


I mean we all know(from the toyline) that he can transform, but do Megatron, Shockwave and the other characters on the show know that he is? Not likely given the comments Starscream (and I think others)has(have) made about his intelligence.

Doesn't seem like they know. And if they do, they're quite oblivious to it, and are neglectful not to inform Starscream of this. "Oh yeah, did we mention this badass mythical lizard also TRANSFORMS?!" :lol:

That strikes me as odd. Why would the current staff end a popular show and start a new one? It's a pretty big gamble, unless one believes you can catch lightning in a bottle more than once...

Or the Prime show isn't as successful as we think? I don't really know the Nielson ratings or whatnot for the program. :???:

It's not that they're cutting the show short, rather, it's that 65 episodes was their desired goal for this show since before its creation. That it's ending at episode 65 is merely a sign of them making their dreams for the series a reality, coming to fully meet their long term goal after all.

Plus, there's the "Predacons Rising" epilogue movie coming after the finale, so we have that to look forward to as well.

I think there's been more than a hint. I don't recall what episode it was (but it was one of the last two) where Predaking notices Starscream entering in the access codes for the sensor arrays...then in the last shot of the episode, Predaking approaches the control panel and enters in the access code himself. That, to me, doesn't seem like the work of a beast who has very little higher intelligence. He knew exactly what he was doing and how to get it done.

Plus, this might be a case of Unicron Trilogy, three shows that are meant to be part of one consistent narrative under different names to keep toystores happy and interested.
Just since it's all handled in house now, it'll actually be consistent.

That counts as a hint. I did say "hints" not "hint", as in more than once has he shown signs of being smarter than he's let on to be.

did anyone notice that Shockwave has his cannon on his right arm in the promo? I thought that he replaced his left arm with the cannon because of what happened in FoC.

Huh. Weird.

Could be an animation goof. Or maybe Hasbro mirrored the video for some reason.

My best guess would be Hasbro Mirrored the video, because they are normally pretty good with the animation errors
