    Ok...since Wheeljack blew up ALL the BEASTS before they were born, and we only have ONE actual Beast in the show, and the majority of bad guys are still Decepticons, why are there all these Beast toys and Autobot and Decepticon toys in beast hunter armor available?

    And finally, why is the show called "BEAST HUNTERS" if there are virtually no BEASTS to hunt????????????????

    Sorry if this has been asked already.

    That's probably not the last we saw of them. The crew went as far as to make the assets, after all.

    I wouldn't read into it too much. It's a title for a show. That's all.

    Because Optimus namedropped the title when he decided to go find some bones :p 

    But yah, what Jackest/Stygi said; they'll be back in time for Predacons Rising, and voila, let's go hunting :D

    The name change is mostly an advertising thing, to spice things up a little after two seasons.

    The new toys are out to sell more figures, the cast hasn't changed much and for three consecutive years hasbro can't sell the same figures.

    The beast hunters thing is a moniker to further advertise the line with the other tie ins.

    Don't read too much into it.

    Because they became BEAST HUNTERS.

    Since they have BEAST WARS on their hands.

    But really, I'd have liked to see some of the other beasts and an actual beast hunt occurring...not just the Autobots being hunted now and then by the same beast. Granted, Predaking will probably find a way to reactivate some of his brethren, but after reading all the story shorts in the instructions for each of the Beast Hunters figures, I was expecting a little more. So far nothing in those shorts has actually happened in the show.

    I know, I know...I'm being nit picky, but if my seven year old is getting ticked off about it, why shouldn't I lol! He's really mad that all the Predacons got blowed up! He's really been looking forward to seeing Grimwing big time!

    5 bucks the Predacons(hopefully all of them) are actually trapped within that cybermatter growth at the end of the episode. The matter was so dense that Shockwave couldn't pick up their bio-energy signatures.

    I posted this comment a few days ago:

    You sure sound like one of those folks who like to overreact & jump to conclusions too easily.

    You know that most of the times, the stories/bio of the figures have NOTHING to do with the show, right?

    See Energon, Beast Wars, Beast Machines, most TFTM figures, HFTD figures and so on.

    The lab that was blown up was NOT all of the clones.. just the ones used to piss of Predaking. or at least Shockwave has the ability to make more clones at a later time.

    I missed the first 10 minutes of the show so..

    Well, there are only four episodes left and if you read the episode synopsis's listed in the link below, it really doesn't look like they get to it.

    List of Transformers: Prime episodes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I understand that the two hour movie coming out may really get into the Predacons, I really just thought it was funny that we got a show called Beast Hunters with virtually very little Hunting of Beasts going on. And please guys...I'm not really mad about anything that I've brought up, I just thought it was worth discussing. I think it's brilliant that Hasbro can create an entire Beast Hunter mythology with toys and characters to go along with it without actually spending the money to make a show about it even though that's what the show is called =D

    Yep, truthfully, that's where I hope it's going. The cybermatter has picked up the necessary Predacon biological goop and causes more of a natural rebirth of the Preds. I'm also hoping that Shockwave is far more reluctant (after all his hard work) to let the Predacons be destroyed so easily and may actually have ulterior motives anyway!

    Again, I brought this up to create a discussion, so please leave the judgmental comments out of it. Talk about the show, not me. :)

    After seeing that great looking Waspinator at Bot Con I'm guessing they went with the name Beast Hunters to build up some excitement in the younger viewers for beast-formers. Us older fans know it's a cool concept but kids might not know how cool it can be. Plus it would give Hasbro the chance to market more than just cars and jets.

    Not really sure how many beasts will show up on the cartoon series but it looks like Hasbro is starting to push beast figures.

    You know what I think that could be an actual possibility.
