The following preview for this weeks Transformers Prime episode has been recorded and posted to YouTube by several fans.
Following on from the previous news story from NYCC which contained the preview trailer for season 3 of Transformers Prime which will contain the subtitle "Beast Hunters", we can bring you some preview images of the first Predacon toy, Predaking, thanks to TFW2005.
The images of the figure, which can be viewed after the jump, have been mirrored from TFW2005 as that website is currently serving malware and is unsafe for visitors until the admnistrators remove the infected files. If you visit the website you will receive a warning in your browser regarding the malicious trojan software which has probably been uploaded as a result of a vunerability within the v-Bulletin platform which runs the website. Once the site becomes available again you will be able to find the original images here, but until that time simply click on the heading of this news article in order to view the mirrored imges.
Predaking is the leader of the Predacon, a third group of Cybertronians who, according to the hints within the preview video as well as the background stand, are the "Decepticons ultimate weapon". The toy of Predking is a homage to both the original Generation One Predacons, in terms of colour scheme, as well as Transformers Galaxy Force Flame Convoy (Transformers Cybertron Scourge).
The figure is only shown within his dragon form, though if you look closely you will see the shape of the head quite clearly. We have enlarged one of the images to help highlight this which you can view below.
With volume one of Jim Sorenson's and Bill Forster's latest book, G.I. Joe: Field Manual Volume 1, out now, fans of the series will be please to hear that the 2nd volume of the book, which covers the 2nd season as well as the Dic series, is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com. Set to be released in February 2013, you can preview the book here.
Our thanks go out to Dan Gilvezan for letting us know that an audiobook version of is recently released book "Bumblebee & Me" is now available for download on audible.com. The book is read by Dan himself and can be found at http://www.audible.com/pd/ref=sr_1_2?asin=B006NY1QP0&qid=1324486559&sr=sr_1_2
A teaser trailer for Transformers: Prime - Season 2 has now aired. You can view the trailer below.
Jim Sorenson updated his blog on Tuesday with a new Ark Addendum entitled Ratbat's Transform. As you can probably guess from the title, the article focuses on the transformation sequence for the Generation One Decepticon cassette Ratbat.
Here's an update from Jim, "this week I finish up my cassette transformations. I give you... Ratbat! It's a simple transformation. He basically unfolds, much like the toy. The big difference is that his weapons pop out of his back, instead of being attached manually. And one final reminder: we've got a book signing for The AllSpark Almanac Addendum this Saturday at Emerald Knights Comics & Games in Burbank. 1:00 PM on December 10th.4116 W. Burbank Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505"
Jim Sorenson has posted a new additional to his Ark Addendum yesterday called Mircobots Part 1 . Here's Jim to tell you all about it, though remember to click the link to view the character model.
"This week in The Ark Addendum... MICROBOTS! Part 1. No, it's not a
two-part episode, I just have some more designs from the episode.
Unusual ones... but we'll get to that next week.
This week's installment is the backgrounds and props from the episode. As we all remember, the Decepticons discover the remains of their as-yet-unnamed starship, which Beast Wars would dub Nemesis. Inside is the Heart of Cybertron, which powers up Megatron and prompts the Autobots to shrink down, Fantastic Voyage style, and infiltrate Megatron's body.
To me, the stand-out models here are Floro Dery's take on Megatron's insides. He reused some of this imagery for the inside of Unicron a little later. It's just a lovely alien landscape, bizarre and compelling. Hats off to you, sir, hats off."
TFormers have posted a video recorded at the NYCC that contains the trailer for TransformersPrime season 2. You can watch the trailer below.
I have updated the Media section of the website to contain a episode summary and complete image gallery from the latest episode of Transformers Prime, Episode 25 One Shall Stand Part 2.
The gallery contains over 350 images from the episode at 1280x720 resolution. If you have not already seen the episode, then its best to avoid the gallery or at least to avoid reading the test that covers the events of the episode.

Shout Factory have issued the following press release for the DVD release of Transformers Prim.
Prepare to Experience the World of TRANSFORMERS PRIME!
TRANSFORMERS PRIME – DARKNESS RISING
A 5-Part Original Miniseries
Hitting Home Entertainment Shelves Nationwide
OWN IT ON DVD DECEMBER 6, 2011
FROM SHOUT! FACTORY
“MEGATRON has not been seen nor heard from in sometime, and if his return is imminent, it could be catastrophic,” said OPTIMUS PRIME.
The lure of the TRANSFORMERS saga starts a new chapter as all foes return, legendary heroes rise, and new ones are found in unlikely places. The new CGI animated series TRANSFORMERS PRIME which currently airs on The Hub television network and is a Hasbro Studios production, deepens the epic mythology of both the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS, while starting fresh for a new generation of fans. Arch rivals the AUTOBOTS and the evil DECEPTICONS, lead by MEGATRON once again face-off in their rivalry for control of Earth in this new show. Celebrate the triumphant return of the AUTOBOTS through cutting-edge CGI animation with TRANSFORMERS PRIME – DARKNESS RISING. Early 2011, loyal TRANSFORMERS fans, as well as families and kids, were introduced to this visually stunning five-part miniseries on The Hub. OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, ARCEE, AUTOBOT RATCHET, BULKHEAD, and many others are back to "roll out" against MEGATRON's latest attempt to conquer Earth. And MEGATRON proves to be more powerful than ever, having acquired a rare element that allows him mastery over life itself. OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTBOTS may be few against the DECEPTICON hordes, but they find increased strength through bonds forged with three human teenagers, taking the human drama to levels as yet unseen by the franchise.
On December 6, 2011, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Hasbro, Inc, will release TRANSFORMERS PRIME – DARKNESS RISING DVD, featuring the entire five action-packed episodes and bonus content. Delivering a new level of heavy metal action and family entertainment for all ages, this highly collectible DVD is priced to own with a suggested retail price of $14.97.
TRANSFORMERS PRIME – DARKNESS RISING boasts an all-star voice cast, including Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Steve Blum, Jeffrey Combs, Dwayne Johnson, among other notables. TRANSFORMERS PRIME is produced by Hasbro Studios. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Kline are executive producers. Kurtzman and Orci served as writers for the feature films TRANSFORMERS and TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen.

An advert is running on Cartoon Network here in the UK advertising the debut of Transformers Prime on the 5th September 2011, so in two weeks time. Transformers Prime currently airs within the US, where the first 20 episodes have been shown, and in Canada where the first 23 episodes have aired.

Following on from the recent announcement of the Japanese release of Beast Wars II, the box art has now been released, and can be viewed below. Beast Wars II was a Japanese exclusive series that was produced to fill the gap between Japanese dubs of Beast Wars and led on to the follow-up series Beast Wars Neo. There has been no official word on whether Beast Wars Neo will be released on DVD though, personally, we are expecting that announcement shortly after the release of Beast Wars II. It is also our prediction that the series will be subbed into English and released via Shout Factory in either late 2012 or during 2013. Again there is no official confirmation of this yet, it is purely a prediction by Transformers At The Moon.
If you like Beast Wars II or want to find out more then why not check out our Toy Gallery where we have photographed many of the figures or our Prototype section that contains some pages from the animations sheets and character designs. You'll be seeing more behind the scenes details from Beast Wars II over the coming months here at Transformers At The Moon as we own hundreds of pages of character models from the show as well as some original scripts.
Jim Sorenson has updated his blog, Disciples of Boltax, with the transformation sequence for the trainbot Yukikaze. Previously Jim has posted the transformation sequences for four other members of the Trainbots, Shouki, Getsui, Seizan and Suiken but he is missing the sequence for Kaen and the gestault form Raiden. We will check through our own character / model sheets to see if we have the missing pages but in the meantime here is Jim's thoughts on the character.
BTW, Yukikaze translates roughly to "Snow Breeze." It's a fairly common
name in Anime and Manga, especially for cold-based characters. The
name itself would be reused in Beast Wars II as the space ship
(non-sentient) for the Maximals.
