Transformers: Prime AIRDATE REVEALED!!!!

Posted by:

It has been stated countless times before that the next Transformers cartoon, Transformers: Prime, would be debuting on the new Hasbro-Discovery joint venture TV channel in the Fall of 2010. Now that the Hub has been launched on television, it became only a matter of time for the upcoming Transformers: Prime cartoon to hit the airwaves. And now, at long last, the wait is finally (halfway) over!  For today we finally have a seemingly-confirmed airdate!

According to a post made on, both Transformers: Prime and G.I. Joe: Renegades will debut on 2010's Black Friday, A.K.A. November 26, 2010!!!

This is supported by a listing on, which states that Transformers: Prime will air on that day at 4:00pm to 4:30pm (check your local listings) with an episodes titled "Darkness Rising (Part 1 of 2)". G.I. Joe: Renegades will air at 5:00pm to 5:30pm that same day with "The Descent (Part 1 of 2)".

Finally, it would seem that a solid confirmation on this debut date can be found on none other that the Hub's website itself, as its TF: Prime page states to tune in November 2010!

Let the countdown begin!

this is fantastic news. although i believe i will need to wait for someone to put it up on youtube as i live in the uk and i don't think we get the hub. i've checked both cable and sky and nothing *sigh* no wurries though at least i have something to look forward to yay!

i have been meening to downlode animated from series 1 to 3 myself. i'm quite bumbed that i cant find on dvd or i would have snapped up like a shot lol

Maybe they'll put the episodes on their website. Right now, has episodes of both G1 and Energon (?) for video streaming.

According to here -
- the UK had seasons one and two of Animated released on DVD at some point.

we had series 1 and 2 of animated but not 3. i would rather not get 1 and 2 without 3 as i dislike incomplete series lol

i waited for the full dbz box set before bying any of that and i did the same with tf g1, armarda, energon and cybertron. got bm series 1 and 2 the same day but havent got hold of bw yet. cant find that on dvd anyware not even sure if i can find in england for reasonable prices. they're like £100 over hear at the moment on ebay the minimum i saw bw on for is £60 wich is about $90.

Well, it actually probably would have been better to have picked up seasons 1 and 2 since:
A) Hasbro said that they have no plans to release season 3 on DVD, and
B) All the previously-released Animated DVDs are currently out of print.

I will probably be watching all of these on youtube since COMCAST is not caring the HUB.

lol you can always turn to other web sites to get TFA season 3..... I have it on dvd because someone was nice enough to record it and make a torrent....ya its got CN ads all over the bottom of the screen but oh well..... same goes for every other series except BWII and BW Neo......

Energon? why energon?? that's random...

@lioconvoy: Except that BWII and Neo still have yet to be fully subbed in English. Both have only been partially subbed. So, unless you know Japanese, it won't be easy viewing those two series and understanding them.

Also, where'd you find the Animated torrent? Is it all three season, or individual ones (I'd like to just have season 3 alone).

@Wing Saber: I said the same thing when I saw that. Could this be a possibility of Energon (of all series) coming to the Hub? I would have thought Beast Wars would've been the best choice for any other than G1 and Prime.

i'm lurning japanese and i'm not fluant but i'm i would say about 75 percent there in reguards to the language.
possibly mor.

the pirate bay is where i found the sezen 3 torent. just hope you have good anty virus softwair because that place is riddled with them lol.
the sezen 3 is thankfully free of anything rong with it though. its fantastic quality. check it out and you won't be dissopointed.

i would have expected bw on the hub also it seems strange that energon was chosen ... although it did pritty much reference most series as omages. perhaps they are going to mass relice the energon toyline again? or perhaps the crappy figures will get deluxe versions in generations or rts.

to be honest, i would love to see the gen1 and bw japanese series dubbed rather than subbed. i would like to get hold of some of the molds for the toyline as japanese caricters rather than the new dinobots or what ever the neo figures were called in universe. also i would like to see how hasbro would fit the japanese continuity in to our interpritation.

I'm gonna PM you something about Animated season 3.

I doubt the Energon line will be revived. Even though the G1 cartoon is airing again, there's no G1 toys to accompany it. If the Energon cartoon does re-air as well, it may just be the show without its toyline.

In a way, the Japanese G1 and BW series have been dubbed into english. Just, not in the wyas the fans want them to be. The Headmasters, Masterforce, and Victory, received English dubs by Omni Production in Malaysia, but they are imfamously bad. And these three, as well as BWII and Neo, have become the products of various fandubs, like those of, which can vary in quality and accuracy.

the star tv dubs of the japanese g1 suck but the tfcog are ok in the case of victory and bwii and robot masters and scramble citty
