"When a fearsome new faction, the PREDACONS, emerge on Earth, OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOTS adapt with never before seen BEAST HUNTERS abilities to battle this all new enemy. TRANSFORMERS BEAST HUNTERS finds the AUTOBOTS facing off against both the DECEPTICONS and the dragon-like PREDACONS, an unprecedented new foe led by the spectacular PREDAKING character. BEAST HUNTERS is the touchstone for the TRANSFORMERS brand across all platforms in 2013 driven by the award winning "Transformers Prime" animated series which is produced by Hasbro Studios, airs on The HUB television network in the U.S. and is seen by kids and fans in 182 countries.
"BEAST HUNTERS invigorates the trendsetting TRANSFORMERS brand with a compelling new enemy for the AUTOBOTS in the PREDACON faction featuring incredible new beast-themed characters like PREDAKING," said John Frascotti, Chief Marketing Officer, Hasbro. "BEAST HUNTERS will be a major focus introducing innovative new entertainment and branded play experiences, delivering an exciting new era for millions of TRANSFORMERS fans around the world.""
I was recently sent one of the new Beast Hunters, Starscream Decepticon, to review, and have to say that they have come a long way since the Transformers of my day and age. :-) And, what better way to surprise a child with this and other new Transformers Prime Beast Hunters than fill their Easter baskets with them. While the girls were playing with their dolls and ponies, all the boys at our house were gathered around the table this AM after going through their Easter basket loot, putting together these awesome Transformers. If you walked into the dining room and saw all the boys and their Dad's huddled around the table, you would have through they were conducting a top secret mission or performing surgery. All you could hear was "Oh, wow; Look at that; No Way; Cool; Let me See; Awesome." Based on their excitement and talk, I am guessing that they liked these new toys from the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters line.
The boys/men remained in the dining room for a few hours, with only a few exits to grab other Transformers Prime toys, to add to the mix. As the girls/ladies walked by, we would stop and peak in to see them running around the table pretending to be flying the plane that the Starscream Decepticon converts into, that is when he is not in robot form, clenching the thunder talon or shooting missiles from his arms. Here are a few photos my husband shared of this amazing new toy, which retails for only $14.99 online and in most retail stores that toys are told. I am surprised there was a "No Girls Sign" in the so-called man cave/family room, where these photos were taken, as the girls even made it into a few photos. :-)
Cool, huh? They sure do think so, and have already asked for more Beast Hunters toys and accessories to add to their Transformers Prime collection. :-) Even though they had to clear out of the dining room, so that I could set the table for Easter dinner at 1PM, they didn't mind, as they all filed into the family room to watch some Transformers Prime episodes from the popular HUB Network, that we have on DVD. I guess today is Transformers Prime day in our house, thanks to the Easter Bunny. :-)
Do you have son, grandson or even husband who is a fan of the Transformers Prime series on the HUB Network, or just loves the whole Transformer brand? If so, then you will want to pick up the new toys, which became available as of February of this year. And, make sure you stay tuned as other licensed merchandise including apparel, comic books DVDs, and additional innovative toys and action figures from the Transformers product line will continue to be released throughout the year. I know a bunch of boys/men who are eagerly awaiting these new toys and products. :-) How about you?
