Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Promo Spot #2 - Video Transmission from Shockwave

Posted on 01-07-2013 at 04:28 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Prime
The official Transformers Youtube channel has updated with a new clip promoting the upcoming third season of Transformers Prime, Beast Hunters. All is not well in Shockwave's lab on Cybertron as he sends a transmission to Megatron...

Check out the clip below, which teases in its description, find out what happens in February:




In other news, the Hasbro Transformers website has also undergone a mild, post-Predacon rampage facelift. More on that story here.

Nice catch! It's weird though, the content doesn't match up with the previous footage at all.

Perhaps this was specially made for the trailer, and won't actually be in the show? That'd explain why they went for the 'speak into stationary camera with body obscuring the background' type of scene. No extra scenery or characters to make.

Is it me, or was Shockwave's voice less deep here than in Out of the Past?

And he continues to suggest that this Shockwave will be a "loyal to Megatron" version.
Pcm979
With only 16 episodes -I think that's the number-, I'm not sure they have time for another 'Megatron gets betrayed' arc, or if they even should. It's been done enough for me. But there's always the off-chance that Shocky's staged this little incident.

If it actually ends up in the show at all.
TFW10
^^ Agreed and perhaps ^^

Thank you for sharing.

"They?",,,, I would like to know who's they but time will tell

Hopefully Shocks won't get destroyed
Pcm979
Yeah, I was wondering about that too, with the distortion over the name. It's a bit late to try to keep the Predacons under wraps, surely? So I wonder if it's actually someone else.

Meh, I'm speculating far too much.

While the video was cool...I feel that it was basically a commercial for the new toys and the new direction for the show. Since (like you said), nothing feels like it was taken from an episode, and it doesn't show much (besides Shockwave, who is awesome).

Shockwave, Shockwave, Shockwave.

You just don't learn from your shennanigins with giant killer robot reptiles, do you?
Sovereign Prime
Personally, I believe this trailer foreshadows a possible Predaking going rouge. Just my thought, at least.

Given Shockwave's basic movements, the lower quality look of the animation, and altered/different voice, I'd say that this clip is intended to advertise the toy line more so than the actual show.

It also doesn't help that this clip doesn't in any way line up with what we've seen of the upcoming episode so far, in that Shockwave seems to have Predaking on some sort of leash. Whilst here, he's lost total control of him before even getting to Earth.

I'll just leave all my speaking to you, you're much better at it.
Concept
Are we sure this is for the show?

Not something else, not that I don't believe you.

Well, it's on Hasbro's official Transformers channel, and it isn't early April, so...
Autovolt 127
That was pretty cool though what is with Shockwave's voice. That sounds nothing like David Sobolov.
Transbot90210
Nice to see something new. Any premier dye given yet?

I like how it went in audible when he mention that you can not contain the power of....

Just for the record.

Looked/sounded a bit like dinobots?

Ah I only checked the news forum
Noideaforaname
For an urgent message, Shockwave sounded... bored.
Reflector Prime
it's for the toys, the quality is not up to the same production standard as the tv show.

Then it was a good move not to show them.

It could very easily fit in. The first promo is Shockwave,"My Lord Megatron here is the first of the beast." Megatron,"Good Shockwave, go and make more!" Cut to Shockwaves Lab. He makes more and loses control of them.
StarYoshi14
Really hope Shockwave doesn't become season 3's early casualty like Cliff was for season 1.

I think these "beasts" were the Dinobots.........

It does look like to be more for the toys then for the show. Though the Predacons can break away to form their own faction later on which is possible.
JackWheel
This is most certainly for the toys. If it was for the show, then it would of said 'Transformers Prime', then shown the Beast Hunters symbol like in the trailer.
JackWheel
Also( I hope a news poster sees this) the YouTube description posted says "Find out what happens in FEBRUARY".
shroobmaster
I am pretty sure that Shockwave's voice was the same guy that voiced the Starscream Movie leader toy.

That's exactly what I thought as well.

Shockwave sounds not his voice actor for the show.

Even though the Predacon model seen in the video clearly matches Predaking's model in the Episode Preview.
Golden Age
Has it been noted that the "Beast Hunters" logo is similar to the original "Battle Beasts" font?

i saw dragon 's tail and foot

yes the foot seems to be the same as in the 1st trailer.....

which makes me wonder... Are we going to See a Arc involving Megs and Prime having to team up ( More than half an episode w/ Unicron) to ensure both Autobot and Decepticon survive? This could also be a perfect spot to bring Thundertron and the star seekers, as they hate cybertronians- Thundertron could see the predacons as a tool, a way to finally take his revenge
Rotorstorm
Kind of meh, at the bit where it glitched and he said they were out of control I kind of thought 'ooh, Dinobots' but it just looked like a predacon to me, which is a shame.
Sideways77
Eh, another case of obviously not the origional VA.
Ravage101
Hmmmmmm it would appear that the Autobots and the Decepticons will be forced to fight side by side against a common enemy. I like complicated story developments like this...deeps the characters and really tests their resolve.
GAUGE
pretty sure this was made merely to advertise the new toys.

it's nothing new. Hasbro's been doing these for years now.
Prime Jetscream
Bleh, boring. Just a toy commercial.
SMC92
Hopefully the voice will be much better in the actual show :/

It is, if you watch the teaser trailer.
BB Shockwave
Guess that happens if someone doesn't have peripherial vision and doesn't notice the giant dragon rumbling behind him.

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?
fallen_revenge
That gave me the chills! That certainly got me pumped for Season 3!
ErbFan28
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
