    with the news of transformers 4 and beast hunters I just realized. hasbro is starting over with the transformers brand as a whole.
    we have the aligned continuity which is essentially a new g1 (WFC and FOC were meant to be prequel games to the g1 cartoon)
    beast hunters I have no doubt will be part of the aligned continuity and will be this generation's beast era
    transformers 4 honestly is probably gonna be a reboot of the transformers movies (and I have a feeling hasbro studios is just gonna take over where bay left off)

    what do you guys think? you think hasbro is starting all over with the transformers brand?

    a reboot wouldn't be called "4". it's going to change, but not reboot.

    beast hunters is just season 3 of prime.

    so no, they aren't starting over.

    dark of the moon and revenge of the fallen's official titles never had numbers in them so it could be a reboot and we don't know the beast hunters is prime season 3

    That's interesting (but mildly disappointing). I hadn't read that. Link?

    I think it's too early to tell what Hasbro has in store for the next couple of years. For all we know the new movie could end up being titled "Transformers: Beast Hunters." :lolol

    Oh no, a reboot, how will we ever deal with something the brand hasn't done continuously since THE END OF BEAST MACHINES?

    Seriously, cool your jets. Hasbro has already stated that Aligned is the new continuity that will be the jumping off point for future series, aside from the movies which predate aligned and so are still in their own continuity.

    The only constant in a franchise about transforming robots is change. Which mode is the beginning, which mode the end? Who can say?

    Beast hunters is not a new line. it's a extra banner that is being placed above the prime toy line banner.

    Hasbro has been adding this secondary banner on existing lines for ages. examples,battle for the allspark,powerlinx battles. HFTD,RTS,Nest,the unicron battles,trilogy,generations,transmetals,fuzors & the list goes on.

    Hasbro needs to create a extra banner on a existing toy line. in order to trick retailers,parents & kids that it's a newer product line. this is done to get more sales profits for hasbro. it's done to trick retailers into ordering more stuff & in higher volume.

    Maybe the storyline will focus on the bots and less on the human...maybe UNICRON will be in it?

    Great. Thank you TFW for the misleading News Report. I can't wait for 100 million more posts about this new Beast Era that isn't actually happening.

    Seeing Transformers started over would kill me... My Armada childhood! But Hasbro is too successful with TF to start over now.
