DVD Review: Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising

By Robert “Rob Base” Greenwood

So thanks to Shout Factory, we received an advance DVD review of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising the movie. We, here at Alternative Mindz, have been huge supporters of the Prime series on Hub channel so we were especially excited when this showed up on our doorstep. This DVD release is supposed to bridge the gap of the series and help tie up any loose ends.

(Below we will slightly spoil events of the series and movie)

https://i0.wp.com/comicbook.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/transformers-prime-beast-hunters-predacons-rising1.jpg?w=640

The movie takes place on a barren wasteland once known as Cybertron.
Optimus Prime, with fellow Autobots Arcee, Wheel Jack, Bulk Head, Ultra Mahmud and Bumble Bee (who got his voice box back), are trying to restore Cybertron and bring home all refugees.

Optimus and Wheel Jack set out to find the AllSpark, leaving Ultra Magnus and the rest to search out Cybertron for any survivors. In their search, they find Predaking, the once mighty leader of the Predacons.

He is in no mood after his defeat on Earth. We soon find that Starscream and Shockwave are cloning remains of fallen Predacons.

https://i0.wp.com/static.seibertron.com/images/spotlights/cartoon-predacons-rising-blu-ray.jpg?w=640

This film has everything you need and everything you love about the Prime series. I don’t want to spoil too much, but a great evil returns and, in a weird way, is an homage to the 1986 TF film.

I give Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Movie a 4.5/5 and everyone needs to buy this film when it comes out.

This amazing DVD has a behind the scenes featurette and is available on Blu Ray tomorrow.

Transformers Botcon Press Release

This year’s TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame class, as entirely voted on by TRANSFORMERS fans online, consists of the following two characters:

BEAST WARS MEGATRON

bw_megatron

 

An insane, hyper-intelligent criminal mastermind who led a group of renegade PREDACONS to Earth in search of the Energon they would need to conquer CYBERTRON, MEGATRON became so much more than a petty felon. When the search led to the discovery of alien artifacts, MEGATRON launched an assault on Time itself, seeking to change history to his benefit. He nearly destroyed CYBERTRON in his mad quest to exterminate the TRANSFORMERS, and was stopped only when OPTIMUS PRIMAL brought him down. He returned, determined to have his vengeance, and his battle with the MAXIMAL leader raged across the multiverse!

 

ultramagnus

ULTRA MAGNUS

As the commander of the most elite AUTOBOT special forces unit ever assembled, you’d expect ULTRA MAGNUS to be just about one of the most unstoppable warriors this side of the galactic core. You’d be right. If there is any AUTOBOT the DECEPTICONS fear as much as OPTIMUS PRIME, it is ULTRA MAGNUS. His battle hammer has crushed chassis from one side of the galaxy to the other. No battlefield on which his armored feet have stepped has ever been yielded to the DECEPTICONS.
