So I have been a big fan of TF Prime since the first episode. Each week I was so excited for the new episode to premiere. I personally feel this is the best TF series to date. But now I have a problem and its called Beast Hunters. I never liked Beast Wars and I'm now worried that TF Prime isnt going to be as interesting to me. I also feel like all the toys will be horrible too. I mean its one thing to have claws as a beast but as a robot I want HANDS not CLAWS. Surely this is possible. Anyway what was a great showI feel will now go down the drain along with the toys we have seen for them so far. Looks like it time for me to start filling some holes of my older lines. Am I the only one that feels like this?

Looking for packaging for 20th Anni. Masterpiece Optimus Prime and his axe and Megatron gun. PM me if you have any of these at a reasonable price.

No you are not the only one. I kind of feel the same way whenever there is a battle filled with insecticon and clone armies. Not enough uniqueness.

I'm a little skeptical as well, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see. It may not be bad at all. :)

I've fallen off the Prime bandwagon as well. I haven't watched an episode since early Season 2 and haven't bought a toy since Arms Micron (AM-14) Breakdown.

The show for me hasn't got worse or better. It's ok in my opinion, but not great. I just don't have the same feeling for the characters as I did on Beast Wars. This is mt lease favorite Optimus Prime too. He always is emotionless and has a blank stare on his face. He's really boring for me.

I liked Prime's cool upgrade. And I liked Ultra Magnus. The Beast mode angle has already been done. The series I REALLY want to see is one based on the War For Cybertron game. JUST bots fighting on the planet....no humans. Think it will EVER happen?

Since the series are geared towards pushing toys to kids. I would say no. But, if a more adult/grown up network picked it up - maybe. That I would watch.

Let's face it: a non-human-affected movie plot is not likely to happen. That is why a kazillion people have seen the movie, but relatively few play the Fall of Cybertron. More people probably play, say, Call of Duty. When you make it total science fiction to the point of being exclusively on another world, you're making a niche market. Niche markets don't make billions.

Call of duty is not a good example. It is The Top selling game. I think they even said it was the top selling entertainment product. Which would mean its also bigger than any movie.

A movie could do perfectly well. I mean they made Cars, they are making Planes. A movie does not need to revolve around humans.

I will shore up my viewpoint that any big screen Transformers feature will have to be disappointing and full of unwanted humans and pot brownie jokes with the following major points:

1) Because Hollywood.

That is all. :lol: :lol: :lol: ....... :cry:

Ive been wanting a movie like FOC forever. Anyways back to prime, I enjoy the show more now that UM and shockwave are a part of it. Shockwave has always been my favorite decepticon since a kid. They left him out of several cartoons, and then they let humans and bumblebee kill him off in the movie. Come on man! At least hes pretty cool in this new cartoon, and I really like the G1 homage in his robot form. Not a big fan of "predaking" though.

Predaking bores me. I am really enjoying Ultra Magnus, he's freakin awesome, even with his personality. Shockwave finally makes another appearance. These past few episodes have been hilarious.

I agree; the last episodes have been really funny (and a little disturbing, too)!
I really enjoy TF: Prime and it saddens me that there are only going to be three seasons.
I wonder what will come next...

The latest episode "Evolution" was pretty cool! I liked Predaking transforming into robot mode. And man....I LOVED the fight scenes between him and Ultra Magnus and Wheeljack! They gave as good as they got! I hated to see Magnus' hammer get destroyed. And I really love Prime's new "bulked up" look! Just wished Prime would show more range of personality like in the original G1 series.

TF:P is still holding the rails to be my all time favorite Transformers television series...It's all going to come down to the ending. If it ends as cleanly as Beast Wars, it will take it. If not, I'll have to evaluate from there.
