    After seeing this trailer, I don't think I'd bother getting a Voyager Predaking.

    The only thing I don't like about this, is by now we all now how TF Prime works.

    Introduce a new threat.
    introduce said threat along with overly powerful overwelming odds against autobots.
    Make the autobots situation seem hopeless.
    Introduce powerful new Autobot weapon (in this case a brand new optimus prime)
    Prime rallies his other 5 Autobots and they beat the new threat like it's nothing.

    The end.

    It's going to be really tough to convince views and fans that that ishn't what's going to happen this time.

    The series is good, but the concepts just keep getting repeated.

    Because blowing up Optimus Prime, destroying the Autobot base, scattering the few Autobots across the world without any kind of communications, having complete air dominance, TWO land-based armies, and having set up a new fortress on his own simply doesn't define "really big advantage".

    Either that or Megatron is just so fucking lazy that he has Predaking go look for Autobot refugees instead while he watches My Little Pony.

    So now I wonder if these were just supposed to be Cybertron's cavemen from the past that were cloned.

    Maybe in this show the machines actually evolved instead of being made like in the original show.

    Beast Machines the idea that Transformers evolved from something organic could mean there were transitional robot/biological hybrids around.

    Or it's just that robot dragons happen to be ancient Cybertronians.

    I'd love a reveal that there's an Earth connection, if only because then they can say that stories/legends of Dragons were actually about Predacons.

    I figure the Preds are more along the lines of "ancient race that was wiped out for whatever reason". Maybe they're like the Manhunters in that they're a failed first go at the whole "transforming robot" thing that Primus tried.

    Are we getting a new OP though? I mean, yes, they showed off some CGI around TF but only the art that appears on both the Voyager and Ultimate boxes...and that doesn't mean anything. I mean, there was CGI on the backs/boxes for Kup, Hot Shot, the other Bumblebee repaint (I don't remember the name), Ultra Magnus and Thundertron and they didn't show up in show.

    I'm not saying we AREN'T getting an upgraded Optimus in the show but I haven't seen any evidence that says we are.

    Neat, but really wish these sneak previews would sneak preview us more than Shockwave introducing Predaking. Like, maybe a quickie montage of scenes or something.

    Looks epic. Glad I decided against bother and going for that super sized version of Predaking.

    At the very least a few clips of the Autobots and what their status is.

    Looks cool, but it probably won't be. Yay for Knock Out, though.
