    It is, if you watch the teaser trailer.

    Guess that happens if someone doesn't have peripherial vision and doesn't notice the giant dragon rumbling behind him. :D 

    Though, this is in contrast to the other trailer where Shocky introduces Predaking to Megatron. Also, his VA is different. Maybe just a stinger video made for advertisment?

    It would be sweet if this was in the show, but right away I noticed the animation is low quality. I could see this being an ad for the toys...then again, why would they not show the characters if they're trying to sell them.

    I don't know. I guess we'll see.

    I think the low quality is part of the effect of the ad, that shockwave's Lab is in ruins, and the "transmission" is kinda of crappy on purpose, to help create the "seriousness" of the situation

    I'd say this is definitely an ad for the toyline rather than the show. The more static animation, Shockwave's voice actor blatantly not David Sobolov, and it not matching up with the preview for the series etc.

    For someone devoid of emotions, isn't his tone about right?

    Wouldn't that be interesting? That give a new twist to the show's subtitle now, wouldn't it:thumb 

    Are they the reason for the Predacon's creation?
    February?! Thank goodness! Late Winter sounds much better than Spring, which usually means the end of the season.
    Low quality? What clip are you watching? The animation is on par with the shows. A video transmitting footage from a lab in tatters and with a terrible power source would probably look a bit distorted.


    I guess I'm the only one who likes this Shockwave voice more than the previous--sounds more like the way I think Shockwave should sound. The VA isn't Corey Burton:'( but it sounds much closer to his and that I like.

    You can tell from the voice and the quality of the CGI (look at how Shockwave moves) that this is just solely for the toy commercials

    Please let it be February. Please Please Please.

    Shockwave sounded different, but perhaps that was to give the impression of distortion/bad quality of the transmission because of the ongoing destruction? I could have swore I heard David's voice here and there.

    I got the impression there was more than one. Shockwave could have taken just one to show Megatron then returned to his lab and the others with it.

    It just may turn out that it's Autobots/Decepticons being hunted by the Predicons or Autobots/Decepticons hunting the Predicons. Or a bit of both. The season is shaping up to be quite interesting.

    Or I could be way off base and it's just a toy commercial.

    Well, that was rather underwhelming. It wasn't up to scratch with the rest of Prime, so for something that the title of the video tries to indicate is part of Prime, it just doesn't work for me. That being said, I don't see how this lines up with the trailer we've already seen. Shockwave willingly brings Predaking with him. This suggests he's back at his lab where Predaking has gone crazy, but why would he be there with Shockwave? I dunno. It's possible, but I'd say it's just advertising the toys.

    it could be a potential spoiler! maybe just maybe shockwave and prediking ,predicon come though the portal as time passes ( lets say 5 ep latter) the predicons become rogue with megs/ and the decepticons!

    This is a dumb way to end Transformers Prime. What had been a great 2nd season looks to give way to a stupid 3rd & final one. I really wish they hadn't messed up Prime this way. The toys are junk, the cartoon is ruined and the movies need a reboot. Hasbro..fix this mess please.

    From what I understand a 4th season has been confirmed. Someone kindly correct me if I am mistaken.

    Hmmmmm....as others have said, this vid doesn't seem to predate or follow the other vids for Beast Hunters....but okay....maybe this one is AFTER Shocky introduces Predaking to Megs, returns to Cybertron and things take a very bad turn....for Shocky at least.

    Anyone think he said Megatron enough times? I'm not sure it was clear he was trying to get through to Megatron.

    That's the feeling I'm getting from this. Especially given that the first thing we've seen of the actual show is Shockwave bringing Predeking to earth.

    This vid, especially with the sub-voice, feels very much like an ad for the BH line then anything that'd be canon for the show.
