Transformers Prime:

Brother
Back from the first day of New York Comic Con with some news.

Season 3 will the Predacons. The the black dragon toy that was shown is Predaking. They also showed a short clip of season 3. Shockwave steps through a space brigde and introduces Predaking to a stunned Megatron.

[up][up]Can we see that clip.
You look happy, I can change that if you want.

Found a recording. It is 2 minutes into this vid.

Well it looks like Starscream is rejoining the Cons for sure.

I was thinking that if used properly the Phase Shifter may be one of the most useful and versatile of the relics. It may not grant a massive offensive increase like the Resonator or especially the Star Saber but being virtually untouchable at will absolutely mocks strength and firepower.

Well gentlemen, the fecal matter has collided with the oscillation device this episode. It was amazing.
Master of Tediousness
Well it turns out Smokescreen wasn't THE key, he just had it in him. So much for being like Omega Supreme.

Knock Out sure got a whole lot creepier when had the phase shifter on. And the cordial psychic patch makes a return.

It was hilarious that Megatron threw a vehiclon and a jet vehicon off the ship to pursue Smokescreen. While the jet one went in pursuit, the other just transformed into a car and fell to its destruction.

Megatron also retains his Fusion Cannon when he is in his vehicle form. I call trailer space on that.

Starscream conveniently had one more dose of red energon, and he used it well in getting the other 3 keys. I thought he would just 1 as his bargaining chip, but looks like he got more.

Optimis Prime's Big "NO!" at the end was epic, as well as the humorously slow mo talk beforehand.

[up]Starscream said he had one or two uses of Red Energon.

You'd think Screamer would have left at least on key back in his private lab as a bargaining chip. As of now, there's not a whole lot keeping Megatron from blowing his head off and taking the four for himself.

[up]Considering he's out Breakdown, Airachnid and Hardshell, as well as Knockout proving to be incompetent it isn't in Megs' best interest to kill someone as crafty as Starscream, who managed to get all four keys.

So remember when I said this?

Apparently Starscream didn't.

That being said, [up] makes a good point. Lets be frank. Megs never had a second in command as slick as Starscream, and while Dreadwing has proven himself to be competent, he didn't managed to swipe 4 keys in one go.

If Starscream can convince Megatron that he's really willing to play ball this time, he might stand a chance. Megatron must have kept him around for a reason before right?
Why so serious?
Am I the only one who expected Starscream to use his speed to swipe the Phase Shifter and Apex Armor while he had the chance? With those two, he could very easily have at least taken the keys and fought his way off the Autobot base, if not kill team Prime.

But as we saw, he was pressed for time, and even then, he spent too much time gloating and nearly got caught and killed.

So no, trying to push his luck as much as he did would have been a bad idea. He's lucky he pulled it off.

Double post.

Come to think of it, Megatron should seriously consider taking Screamer back. His time as a free agent has likely shown him his limits, and he was once willing to seriously try and tow the party line. Plus, as already pointed out, he just handed Megatron the opportunity to restore Cybertron on his terms.

And again, Starscream can be pretty competent when he wants to be.

Then again, That Shockwave clip shows he did get accepted back so I suppose discussing it is a moot point.

We'll see next week how 'Scream manages to worm in way back into Megatron's not-quite-as-bad graces. He's usually a transparent weasel, but he can be persuasive when he needs to be.

In this case, he could just be honest.

They have a chance to revive Cybertron, and he wants to be a part of that. Also that going it alone hasn't worked out well.

If Soundwave still has his little recording from before he defected, and he points out that it was Airachnid's actions that led to his defection, it might help out a-lot.

Pictures for the first Beast Hunters Deluxes and Voyagers are out but first I will post this Cyberverse image. I heard ya like Transformers so I put a Transformer in your Transformer!

And now for the new toys.

Soundwave is...eh. The good news is he now comes with Ravage!

Wheeljack is apparently going to be sticking around.

Fucking Bumblebees! Oh well, at least this mold is badass.

This thing is apparently called Laserback. I've never heard of him before.

I am Predaking!

Brother
I want Predaking so much.

[up][up] Wasn't there something called Battle Suit Bumblebee first?

Will it just be Predaking or will there be more Predacons? I hope there will be a Prime version of Waspinator and other BW Cons.

[up][up]Ditto. Everything is better with Dragons and all that.

I have to admit that was a pretty damn good Batman Gambit on Starscreams part, cause just enough confusion to make his move.

I'm also finding it funny how easily we caught on to the discrepancy in Smokescreens backstory, TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life.
