Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Predacons Rising - LEAKED!

Postby Sabrblade » Sat Sep 14, 2013 8:46 pm

The Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Predacons Rising movie has made its way into the hands of fans in advance of its release date and has been leaked onto the Internet.

Here is one YouTube upload of the entire movie - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AxagyZN1O0

Here is another - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pg6FN4bUS4s

Here are a few non-YouTube sources in case either of the above get taken down -

The movie officially airs on the Hub on October 4th, and comes out on DVD on October 8th. Once the 4th comes, we should have an official news discussion topic, but for now we'll use this one.
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

So it starts off with a graduation ceremony for Bumblebee, with Optimus presumably promoting him from Scout to Warrior, as Bee stated he wished to hold off on until the war was over and they were free to return to Cybertron. Though, it looks as though the event is being held in Kaon, before a giant Megatron statue... Odd choice.

Megatron's dead body lies at the bottom of the sea on Earth.

No theme song or sequence for this one. Just the season 3 title card.

Megatron is completely dead, but he cannot fully pass on to the afterlife (i.e. - join with the Allspark) because of the Dark Energon that once flowed through his veins binds him to Unicron's "Anti-Spark". I guess he's just stuck in a state of limbo, then.

When Optimus used the Matrix to silence Unicron before, all he did was render Unicron's material form dormant, while his energy form was roused when Primus awoke when Cybertron was restored.

Megatron's body has become more spiky. and his jet mode now looks a bit more like the Gaia Unicron toy's spaceship mode (the one that looks like a face volcano). Sadly, though, the only toy that comes remotely close to resembling this new form of Megatron's is the Construct-Bots Unicron Megatron toy.

Ah, that's why the ceremony was held by the Megatron statue. So Jackie could blow it up once Bee was promoted. :grin:

Seeing Bumblebee speak with Will Friedle's voice is so refreshing to hear (if that makes sense :P ), and small moment with "Smokey" is very nice.

Bulkhead: "Primes never party." - Oh, THANKS for the reminder! Like we REALLY needed that! :-(

Ah HA! Optimus still hasn't gotten the AllSpark back to Cybertron! Another plot point from the novels still left to be resolved. And he says he needs to go find it because Cybertron, while being back alive itself, is incapable of creating new life without it.

Smokescreen never knew about the AllSpark launching, which Optimus says happened "thousands of years" ago (firmly putting to rest the old "millions and millions of years between WFC/FOC and Prime" gap being not that long). And we get a flashback to the launching. Sweet.

Optimus mentions that the Matrix will guide him to the AllSpark's location, which he attempted to do back in Exiles. But in that book, the Matrix led him to two of the colony worlds instead, and Optimus kept getting sidetracked along the way by many things. So even if the Matrix was going to lead to the AllSpark back then, a LOT of factors really must have gotten in Optimus's way to make him put off finding it for so long.

Starscream, Shockwave, and Predaking are still unaccounted for, and Optimus appoints Magnus to head patrolling missions to find them. Bulkhead is ordered to head the reconstruction project by building a landing field to welcome returning refugees. Wheeljack, however, gets the best job of all: He gets to go with Optimus as his deep-space navigator.

Megatron and Unicron occupy the same mind space within the same body.

Cool! Bulkhead's got Vehicons working under him.

Knock Out and other Vehicons are handcuffed and locked in a cell aboard the Nemesis. Bee's holding them there in hopes to get info on Shockwave's location.

Some of these Cybertronian structures and landscapes do remind me an awful lot like some of those seen in WFC and FOC. I pray the similarities are not mere coincidences.

Enter Skylynx and Darksteel.

Phew! For a second there, I thought Smokescreen was a fried goner. Gotta love that Phase Shifter and Smoke's intelligence usage of it. :D

Ratchet's back.

Bumblebee suspects that, if Shockwave's back in business with his cloning experiments, there could be a lot, a LOT, more Predacons than just those two out there. Let's wait and see.

Wheeljack notes that the AllSpark was sent to a hazardous star system called "Theta Scorpii", which Optimus knows about. Would have been nice to have pointed that out thousands of years ago, eh Prime?

It was Alpha Trion himself who constructed the reliquary that contains the AllSpark's pure energy.

Hiya, Predaking.

That is a LOT of Predacons... dead ones, anyway. "Rendered extinct ages ago by the Great Cataclysm."

How's it hangin', Screamer?

Egad! Seeing them in clear light, Skylynx and Darksteel really don't look anything like their toys. Outside of the most basic of similarities, that is.

Starscream makes no hesitation to constantly speak of Megatron in reverence, despite having no real reason to. Guess he really has grown out of his old anti-Megatron feelings.

Hey look! The Darkmount citadel on Cybertron is just like the one that was on Earth.

Holy smokes! That AllSpark looks nothing like I imagined it would. Neither a cube nor a Matrix-like shape. It's... pretty freaky-looking. Though, it almost seems like Optimus found it a little too easily, compared to his eons of searching for it without luck despite having the same search tools back then as he has now.

UniMegs's entrance mirrors that of Optimus 2.0's from episode 56 "Rebellion".

It's Frank Welker's voice, but Unicron's in the driver's seat.

That is some series "Arms Up" action going on there with UniMegs's arms. :P

I actually do wonder if that Smelting pit will be used in the story at some point (be it now or later), since they bothered to make a big deal about it still burning functionally despite Cybertron having been dormant for millennia.

At long last, after literally eons of searching, Optimus has finally gotten the AllSpark back. Coupled with the Star Saber, that makes two of his star-searching lifelong goals met.

HA! I KNEW IT! I KNEW they wouldn't be smelted right then and there! See? Main characters from Day 1 (plus Smoke, cuz he's awesome) don't get offed so arbitrarily by this show. The plot won't let them. Muwahahahaha!

Smokescreen: "What're we supposed to call 'em, huh? 'Megacron'? 'Unitron'?"
Arcee: "Really? That's your biggest issue right now?" :P

RATCHET CALLED UNICRON A "GOD"!!! A G-O-D "GOD"!!! That is the first time that has ever happened in any English-language Transformers animation ever made!!!

Whoa! In the Primus/Unicron flashback, we got a glimpse of what looked like a pre-formed Cybertron, surrounded by space clouds.

Predaking's about to meet UniMegs.

Oh no... Oh no... no... No... Don't kill Predaking... No...

Unicron just read Predaking's mind and now knows of the legions of dead Predacons from earlier.

And now, Shockwave and Starscream have found them as well.

Starscream is both baffled and overjoyed to see "his master" back. He even complements his new duds.

Darksteel and Skylynx waste no time lunging at UniMegs.

Well, folks, looks like this is what the title of the film refers to: Two new beasts and a whole lot of zombies.

You FOOL, Shockwave! Stop shooting and RUN!

Ah, darn it! Not they're eating him!

The Terrorcon Predacons are headed across the Hydrax Plateau for the Well of All Sparks, the most direct route to the Core.

Starscream's staging a coup aboard the Nemesis.

LOL! Smokescreen's stuck in the wall like Knock Out once was. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Predaking finally meets his two successors.

Knock Out: "Now, will you believe that I'm joining the winning team?"
Bumblebee: "Knock Out... we needed that!"
Knock Out: "Wait. It really was the Immobilizer?" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yay! Shockwave lives! Or should I call him "Shackwave"? :P

Man, Unicron and his army sure took their sweet time getting to the Well. I mean, can they be any slower?

Smokescreen just let slip the news that Optimus almost passed down the Matrix to him.

The ship is down. Right at the edge of the Well.

Whoops. Screamer's cell door broke.

YEAH! Autobots and Predacons vs. Terrorcon Predacons = AWESOME!

Oh no. The horde made it into the well. Along with the Pred trio.

Here comes Prime and Jackie!

Nice! When Bulkhead cries out Jackie's name and rides off the check on him, Arcee follows. Guess she and Wheeljack really hit it off before better than we thought. ;)

UniMegs has the AllSpark... or does he?

A trick!

Unicron, being a being of pure energy, was sucked into the reliquary of the Primes.

Oh look, Megatron lives. Again. Huzzah. :roll:

Megatron has... changed. He has renounced his need to inflict oppression, and has declared, no, demanded that the Decepticons are no more. Has old D-16 finally come back to us?

Starscream has returned to wanting to lead the Decepticons, and has taken it upon himself to rebuilt the faction under his name. But, incoming Predacons put a damper on that, wanting to "settle scores." Ah well, sorry Screamer. :P

Optimus put the energy of the AllSpark into the Matrix of Leadership, so that the reliquary could hold Unicron's essence.

Thus, Optimus's spark can no longer be separated from the multitude of others. In other words, he is now "one with the AllSpark/Allspark".

Optimus: "Because the Matrix must now be relinquished with the AllSpark, it cannot be restored. Or passed down to another. But while this may very well mark the end of the age of Primes, leadership can be earned with or without the Matrix."

Well, folks, looks like we're finally getting a dead Optimus. To those who wanted one back in episode 56, wish granted.

That final line of Optimus's makes it sound like it was written to act as the tiniest of elbow room for Optimus to return to life in a new body should a sequel series need him to do so.

Darksteel was voiced by Steve Blum (whom I could have sworn was voicing Skylynx instead). Skylynx was voiced by Nolan North. No new voice actors for these two, just existing ones.

That was very cool. A lot happened in this movie, and it all felt pretty good. Except for one little thing: The title. This movie was less "Predacons Rising" and more "Unicron Rising (plus a couple of Preds)". It really shows how much the Preds felt forced in to a story that otherwise did not need them. Darksteel and Skylynx were generic brutes who served as mostly background extras who only existed to breath fire and do tough stuff. The Terrorcon Predacon army could have easily been replaced by ordinary Terrorcons with little alteration to the story. Unicron stole this movie, but at least his awakening here, due to Primus's reactivation, made a lot more sense than some random, poorly-written planetary alignment. Bumblebee also stole this movie, being practically the star of it on the Autobots' side and taking center stage in a role of command. Will Friedle can really carry his own weight, and it shows. It was also interesting to see this being entirely Cybertron-centric, with no bits on Earth outside of a few quick shots, and no human characters at all. But, I still feel Optimus's finding the AllSpark was handled a little too easily, with it being found as though it were hardly a challenge to find it. Really, Optimus really couldn't have done this already back when he had the Ark all those years ago? I mean, he had the Matrix back then, which is all that he indicates as necessary to find it now, so what was the problem back then? And then there's Megatron, who's now no longer a warmongering tyrant. Will his change of heart be reflected in future fiction? Or will Hasbro force some way to throw him back into the ways of villainy? And what of Starscream? Did the Preds kill him? Did they not?

And what of the Dinobots? Or Rescue Force Sigma-17? While I don't expect the latter to get any resolution anytime soon, the former has their own comic storyline going on, so hopefully their fate is given in there. Same with Airachnid, who's another open book.

And Soundwave. Holy smoke, Soundwave was completely missing from this movie!

Though, as fun as it was, I'm actually kinda glad that it's all over. TF: Prime was an interesting series, but now that it's run its course, I feel that I'm ready for something new. The Go! cartoon has been entertaining enough, but it's become tough to watch it, so that's a slow going process. Rescue Bots season 2 comes this Winter, but that's still a way's off. Then there's Age of Extinction coming next year, but I need something other than another Movieverse flick to keep me vested. Here's hoping that whatever comes next to replace TF: Prime turns out to be good.

I feel a genuine sadness now that Prime is over :cry: It feels like a while since I've enjoyed a Transformers series this much

It does kind of feel like this should be a little bit longer because a few things not being shown like how Shockwave escaped the Preda/Terrorcon horde and Starscream getting on board the Nemesis. Also unanswered things like Airachnid kind of bug me. I also loved Optimus' closing narration and I'm thinking I might have to steal some of it for a graduation speech I've got to present...

Yeah, I noticed it had leaked yesterday, and logged in to tell you, only to find out you already knew. :lol:

Anyway, a few of my comments:

UNICRON,YAY! Ok, fangirling over that my favorite TF has returned. :D :D :D
I knew it that he was just in stasis, unlike many others over at Youtube and TF sites that said Unicron was dead.
Thank you Ratchet for saying that Unicron is a god, perhaps now that member that had to argue against that now sees the truth.
Knockout was really funny as always, I even laughed then Unicron pointed his gun on him, and Knock Out tailed out of there in his usual way, so Unicron decided to not even care. :lol:
Not to talk about Smokescreen; The way he jumped out of the throne and quickly sidestepped away from it then he thought Megatron had returned, was hilarious. :lol: :lol: :lol:
I thought Unicron was going to kill Screamer then he moved towards him earlier. I was like: "Run, Screamer; Run for your life!" And then Unicron just shouted at him and whacked him. Ok, I know Unicron is unpredictable as he is Chaos, so you never know then he suddenly decide to spare someone (for now).
I noticed that he didn't call himself for Galvatron, unlike what many predicted, and it was correct what we heard first; That Unicron would possess Megatron's dead body (though Megs got back to life for some reason afterwards).
Unicron fired his eye-lasers, TWICE. YEAH!!!! Ok, now I know they can be used as punishment as well. :)
Oh, Megatron, Megatron; Don't you know that it's a bad idea to provoke Unicron, 'specially then you can't escape him? :lol:
Oooh, Megatron suffers eternal torture, this reminds me of something...
Hey, Unicron laughed once. Too bad it was with Megatron's voice, or it would be so much more enjoyable.
And I think I saw a smile on Unicron's face then he said he knew where to find the Predacon fossils. :D
And I see Unicron got trapped. Thanks for not killing him and destroying the balance of the Universe. :) But Unicron will most likely get out of there, thanks to a Herald or someone foolish enough to think they can control whatever is inside that container (in another show should it be a sequel). This reminds me of the tv-trope; Sealed evil in a can.
Oh, and the part there Unicron was trapped inside the container, reminded me of Legacy of Unicron, there he got trapped inside the Matrix.
"I AM THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS. I AM THE BRINGER OF CHAOS. I AM THE LORD OF THE UNDEAD!" Thanks Unicron, for settling this. :)
"THE PAST SHALL CONSUME THE FUTURE. THE DEAD SHALL CONSUME THE LIVING. CHAOS SHALL REIGN SUPREME!" Wow, he really shows to who he is, including his appetite. :shock:
Oh, and then Unicron says that the Age of Chaos shall begin, he looks straight in the camera instead of on Megatron, indicating he is looking at us! Creepy! :shock:

I may say something more later. :P

Edit: Added a few more things. :p

The more I think about it, the more this movie feels, to me, like a sort of response to all the fanboy wishes for future live action movies.

I mean, how often have we seen posts from people wanting the next TF movie to have any of the following:
  • Unicron
  • A story set entirely on Cybertron
  • No humans
  • Full focus on the robots
  • Less Optimus Prime
  • Less Megatron
  • More characterization for the non-Optimus/non-Megatron robots
  • Megatron being upgraded into a form that's not still named "Megatron"
  • Bumblebee to talk permanently
  • No toilet humor
  • No excessive crudeness in general
  • No Michael Bay
We hear these kinds of fan wishes all the time, and this movie has delivered in just 65 minutes all of what three 2 and a half hour long feature films failed to deliver (not that we should have been expecting any of that for the live action films, mind you).

I think the only things missing from this movie that fans kept asking for are the Dinobots (which Age of Extinction will be giving us), Megatron's upgraded form being named "Galvatron", and for a movie that would have all of this to be one that would be released in theaters (which really doesn't matter in the long run since both theatrical movies and TV/DVD movies all eventually just end up as commercial home video media anyway).

Ok I broke down and watched it. And liked it.

No humans was a plus, but given the story is about the rebuilding of Cybertron there was no need for them.

As with all parts for the Transformers franchise Optimus Prime dies....finally.

The think that I found odd was the redemption of Megaton at the end. Its both strange and fitting given that in the Aligned continuity the Decepticons are technically to "good guys" and we have seen them live long enough to become the villains.

For being as short as it was, it felt longer and engaging. While leaving few open open elements, i.e. the Dinobots. However I think that story is being brought to a close in the IDW Beast Hunters comics.
Immaturity is shown by not trying to understand others, but by judging others.
