Transformers Prime Beast Hunters to Be Cancelled? - New Cartoon Series Coming in 2014
Jack - Wednesday, February 13, 2013

The writing has been on the wall for a long time. First the show was moved to the notorious Friday Night death-nell spot for shows about to die. Then Jeffrey Combs, the voice of Transformers Prime's Ratchet, let it slip that Season 3 has cut short to wrap things up. Finally, the official word comes down from Kidscreen magazine that Season 3 Beast Hunters will end this year after just 13 episodes ending Transformers Prime when it finishes this spring to be replaced by a new Animated series in 2014. Read the Kidscreen magazine news below:
As for Hasbro's established stable of series, which drive the programming on its US joint venture network The Hub, the 13 episodes of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters due to launch this year represent the final chapter of the Transformers Prime story. It has grown to encompass 65 half-hour episodes that continue to roll out around the world. Look for a 75-minute Transformers Prime Beast Hunters movie to hit DVD shelves in Q4.

But that's not the end for Transformers. Arnesen says a "new iteration of the animated TV series" is slated for delivery in late 2014, which looks like it might be shaping up to be the year of the Autobots, given that audiences are already expecting the fourth live-action blockbuster in July.

I have a feeling this is actually good news for a lot of Transformers fans. The Prime series has been a real trial to keep people young and old engaged. It may very well be they did too much to please everyone and ultimately connected with on one.

A big let down was long time fans got the CGI cartoon they always wanted, but the characters cloned from the Bay-verse were boring, unattractive and didn't appeal to the movie followers either. Oh, and not to forget the kids were never more annoying and distracting in a TF cartoon.

Other mistakes came from trying to mix everything from the Transformers Universe into one show. When the show did tap into something fans would love, like Unicron. They didn't give us enough or it was mutated and presented in hurry with no follow up afterwards.

More over, the writers were simply too patronizing to the fans. Throwing around misleading story queues that got people excited about something juicy only to find it was a half baked idea such as the faux Nemesis Prime flop leading-up to Season 2. Something tells me they know they fucked up. Bringing in Smokescreen to dominate the 2nd half of Season 2 was a nice fix. Unfortunately, it was too little too late as I and many others didn't even bother to watch the Season 2 finale.

Recently, I got two DotM figures free from TRU. I you spent $25 or more on Transformers products, you could pick a deluxe DotM figure. I had purchased a couple of good figures and my totals went over $25 so Inwas like what the hey. I got a Autobot Armor Topsin and a Thindercracker. This se... read more

And here I thought the high prices were just in my area. I've seen prices $16+ for deluxe figures and $10+ for a dual package of scout sized figures. At those rates, I wonder how they'll clean out the shelves in time for the influx of figures for the new movie.

Unfortunately true for far too many cartoon/anime series.

Could have atleast given it a full 20 episode season, let those that dislike the show have their new series and give the fans a proper send off, but I guess neatly closed storylines is a thing of the past for Hasbro.

Doesn't surprise me and really shouldn't surprise anyone else. The only TF series to last more than 3 seasons was G1 and season 4 of that was only 3 episodes. i really wouldn't even count that as a season. Hasbro needs to sell more toys and there's only so many times you can repaint ... read more

Didn't even think about that.....seems like when they pick up momentum, they go and change or cancel stuff. I bet that all the really good figures will be in the last wave and most stores will decide not to carry them because they want to make room for all the TF4 stuff. I am already seeing Iro... read more

Shame really, Prime was just hitting it's stride IMO. Not sure about BH but I was willing to at least watch the series but had no interest in the toy line. I agree with BW as far as how they are approaching things, hap-hazard at best as I can see from my little corner of the world. In regards... read more

Agreed. Animated's ending felt rushed and forced because they knew the show was getting cut short. Just ONE more season could have done so much. Bummed me out so hard. Prime was just boring. The animation was cool and the characters were fine but the story just bored me out of my skull. I force... read more

It got 3 or 4 seasons. That sounds about right for EVERY major TF show. I'm not convinced going a little longer will cause the brand to go stale but I'm sure kids need to have their attentions kept. Prime will probably live through comics. Just about every other popular canon does. Although ... read more

There've been some pretty spectacular Combiner Wars customs of late - the innovative Raiden that made a 6-part combiner in the format comes to mind. Now, a Japanese Twitter user by the name of @nekogami_red has made the Transformers Prime Decepticons into a combiner! Knock Out, Skyquake, Dreadwing, Airachnid (gotta have a helicopter in there somewhere or it's not Combiner Wars, right?), and Megatron combine to form a body for Unicron! Click through to see the photos.
Not Optimus Prime, not Transformers Prime. Just "Prime." In a bold move, Hasbro is attempting to secure the exclusive trademark rights to use the word "Prime" in reference to "toy robots convertible to other visual toy forms." Are more Primes on the horizon? Is this a pre-emptive move to make sure nobody can Machine Robot Rescue them on a key term in the modern Transformers mythos? No way to tell, but keep reading to see the details of the filing by way of Transformers@TheMoon!
