    Good, can't wait to see what hasbro makes next, cause sorry to say it, even if the characters are awesome and the animation is amazing, the story is garbage and all it does is build up to some amazing stuff and then waste all the potential

    bring on beast hunter. i quit being sad at the demise of toylines and shows after animated got canned

    not to be a hater, but i see people claiming transformers prime is the best transformers cartoon ever.....I feel pity for you folks....you can like it, but when stuff like animated and beast wars out there, prime comes no where near close to topping those as the best

    And....they probably realized they blew their whole load on Unicron in the first season....BIG mistake. Nothing, at least to me, has been interesting since the end of the first season. This show will end, and I won't really feel much about it.

    Yeah, its true. The show has hit its 65 episode mark and Hasbro has been planning to hack it there for syndication for quite some time. Third season is the final season but as far as whether or not this Beast Hunters business has anything to do with Prime or some possible other project, who knows?

    Yeah, my guess is that it won't be the complete end. Season 3 will probably just set everything up for the Beast Hunters series. Hopefully I'm not wrong about this however...

    More than likely it's just the end of Prime name and the next show will be in direct continuity to Prime. I just hope it still stars a good chunk of the cast of Prime.

    Well that sucks, but I kind of had a thought about this happening (not that I wanted this to happen) maybe because of the network it was aired on, the HUB. Don't get me wrong the HUB does a great job of bringing back some of our beloved shows but, when most people want to watch cartoons they probably switch to cartoon network first.

    I would have enjoyed a 78 episode run to match up with the total run for the Beast Wars + Beast Machines Series oh well 68 is all we're to get then so be it.

    I agree! I grabbed every figure I wanted as they came out. One fine day I pretty much ran a gauntlet of Wallyworlds and Targets in the area until I had the Autobot lineup aside from Bulkhead, which I never saw, so I finally bought one online that was opened for display, mainly because I wouldn't pay more than the normal retail, and I finally just saw Bulhead in TRU last week for the first time ever. Never saw a vehicon, and only saw Airachnid once. I would really like Ultra Magnus, and a Smokescreen which I suspect may be a variant of Knockout- if we see one at all. That is just a theory though. But yeah, the toyline should NEVER be like this, trying to be the one lucky guy who just happened to be at that one weird Wal-Mart at 6am for the one per case guy, and everyone else in the area is out of luck until they sell the ones I picked up months ago.

    I really hope Prime doesnt end after season 3 and change to Beast Hunters because there wont be much for me to buy toywise if thats the case. I have a few animal alt mode figures but in general I greatly prefer vehicle alt modes.

    I just hope that if Beast Hunters is indeed a sequel series to Prime (like a Beast Wars/Beast Machines type deal) that at least some, if not most, of the characters transition over into the new show.

    I hate how reality tv has affected every show now produced. They have figured out that a show can be done with bad writing as long as it gets ratings and keep production costs down. This a shame with kids focusing more on games online and such too.

    Or beast wars set the bar so high for transformer show it is hard to meet that expectations again.
