Shout! Factory and Hasbro studios have announce a full length film to be released as the epilogue for the fantastic Transformers Prime series. The film, Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters – Predacons Rising, is set to release October 28. We have some more details and the initial box art after the jump.
With the summer release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon coming soon it’s only natural that Hasbro focused most of its Transformers presentation on it. While most of the movie figures are merely updates of what fans have seen from the previous two film’s toy lines, Hasbro did have a few tricks up their sleeves.
Press Release Continuing its fan-favorite TRANSFORMERS saga, IDW is pleased to offer fans four more issues of Transformers: All Hail Megatron. Starting in July, IDW will publish, under license from Hasbro, Inc., four monthly issues, each featuring two short stories that detail the aftermath of the 12-issue All Hail Megatron series. These must-read books tie up important details from the main series, and pave the way for IDWâ€™s next big TRANSFORMERS storyline.

Holy Crap! The Transformers trailer is now online for you to view – and we actually get to see Transformers this time. Pretty freakin’ cool. Even though this is a Michael Bay movie, and it will probably suck, this trailer has me wanting to head into the movie theatre just to check it out. What would be even more cool is if the Transformer at the end of the trailer actually steps on the little girl – only joking! via Paramount (link)
According to an interview with Tom DeSanto, Producer on the Transformers movie, Frank Welker is still in the running to play the voice role of Megatron in the upcoming flick. Fans of the cartoon series will be super happy if this happens, as the original duo (Welker and Peter Cullen) will be reunited in this tale of good versus evil – all in tranforming robot fun! While Producer DeSanto is saying Welker is still in the running, it is interesting to see that IMDB.com has already cast him in the role. via ISEB.net (link)
