“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. In 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.

On December 6, 2011, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Hasbro, will release TRANSFORMERS PRIME – DARKNESS RISING DVD, featuring the entire five action-packed episodes edited together in a seamless, riveting movie and special bonus content that includes animatics and a special look at concept designs for characters and backgrounds. 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.

    Ok, before i start, i don’t own the game yet, i plan on gettnig it tomorrow, but i’ve had a few hours with my friends copy when he came over, all i can say is this is a great game, the story pretty much follows the story of the movie, but thats to be expected with a game based on a movie, but thats not why you’re here, is it. In terms of gameplay, it’s very fun and responsive, the main enemies in the game are simple cannon fodder, but who wants to fight only bosses(unless it’s Shadow of the Colossus, each Autobot and Decepticon has a melee attack and 2 ranged attacks, just like the first game, unlike the first game, each Transformer is different, such as different ranged attacks, different special moves, and different strength, so Bumblebee won’t be as strong as Optimus. Each mission allows you to pick which Transformer you want to be once you unlock them, unlike the first where you had to use a certain one, Unlocked Ratchet?, wanna use him?, go ahead and pick him. Graphically, the game is split, the enviroments look ok,kinda bland, the Transformers however, look awesome, everything from the trasnformations to them attacking to them just standing there doing nothing, they look great. I didn’t get a chance for multiplayer, but if it’s anything like the single player, it’ll be fun playing against actual people, so if you can, go to the store, pick up a copy, and, in the words of Optimus Prime, transform and roll out

    I have to agree with you on the little avllbaiae movement in Jet-Thing mode. And the size comparison as well, but if you use the first movie Optimus, the trailer kind-a works with it. Just remove the weapon form the bottom and set it aside, and connect the two. It makes a real good display on a shelf if you get it right.
