    Over at this thread on the Allspark, a link was made to THIS article over at Unicron.com, regarding some spoilery tidbits regarding TF Animated Season 3... Their source claims a few things:

    -Episodes have been recorded
    -Begins with a multi-part series of episodes
    -Bob Forward and Larry DiTillio of Beast Wars supposedly penned an episode for season 3... I'll let you follow the link for more.

    Again. Right now this is possibly credible rumor, but still rumor.

    For those who didn't see the link above, the original article is here: http://www.unicron.com/news_item/1421/

    Hmmm... Predacons Rising....

    Well I think Wasp and Blackarachnia will be getting an episode together this next season. Hopefully, they add another name or two to the team as well. Nice to hear that Bob and Larry are coming back to TF's even if for only one episode.

    Yeah - I hope it's true myself.

    Who in the BW Pred cast would work best as new characters? I figure Inferno's crazy enough to work.

    Maybe keep with the insect theme. Inferno, Scorponok, Quickstrike could work,,,Rampage perhaps

    As much as I fucking love Beast Wars, I don't really want it incorporated into Animated.

    Maybe Razorclaw, Divebomb and Headstrong are created to combat the Dinos.

    But probably Waspinator and BA.

    Would be cool though.

    Holy crap! If that's true, I'd expect G1 Predacons appear on TFA! But if we're talkin' about BW Predacons, I'm okay with Inferno or Rampage.... or Tarantulas!

    i kinda agree with you...they might add new gimmicks and repaints to the toys...
    like..."SAFARI OPTIMUS PRIME!" or "SWAMP SPEEDING JAZZ!"...theyre gimmick would be like...changing colors like zartan. or something. -_-"...fail. i dont wanna see that. and im not a big fan of gimmicks either. such as cyber planet keys, or energon stars. ALL IMO.

    but it would be interesting to see how theyd incorporate the predacons in the show. thatd be cool if they all had the black arachnia color scheme of black, gold, and purple. so theyd be the "insecticons" or something like that.

    for just one ep? it depends if the characters will be recuring

    more than likely will just be an episode on wasp, or tarantulas maybe, they could just do a remould of the BA toy then

    Wait, didn't we already know that they recorded the voices for Season 3 from Botcon? I specifically remember someone saying that they got to work with Weird Al again, suggesting there's another Wreck Gar episode coming up... they just didn't ANIMATE the show yet...

    Oh, yay. An alleged "Awesome Inside Source" announcing a story that sounds way too good to be true with no obvious proof or source.



    Someone stop the presses.

    See folks, I told you Animated is not dead. The crew must have been all hush hush at Comic-Con to keep us on our toes.
    The multi-part series of episodes sound like Mr. Isenberg aked Greg Weisman to write those type of episodes.
    Bob Foward and Larry DiTillo writing an episode. I just thought of that a few months ago.
    Also, this is the first time those two have worked on Transformers project since Beast Wars. Now, bring an episode written by Simon Furman.
    This rumor is so :bay  that I want to get an Animated toy right now!

    I agree. Plus Predacons Rising sounds so much like Megatron Rising. They only have 20+ episodes, I'm sure they could find a more kick-ass and unused name.

    Plus, introducing more characters so early is kinda a meh for me, but they did say at Botcon that S3 will kick off in a big way.

    Oh God, please yes.

    Seriously though, Predacons Rising? I hope it's just a working title. Maybe it's an episode where BA gathers guys like Wasp and stuff together and forms her own team?

    But yeah, this is great. So now the writers from BW are doing an ep? It could be the best episode ever.

    Don't forget, Perceptor will be in episode 31, according to the model sheet we saw of him at Botcon. If they count the first 3 episodes, then he'll be in the second episode of S3. If they don't, then he'll be in episode 5.
