Transformers Prime - New Details, Package Art for 'Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising' on DVD, Blu

Coming in early October from Shout! Factory: the series-ending telefilm!

Posted by David Lambert
    A resurrected UNICRON has taken over the now-lifeless body of MEGATRON to seek vengeance on the AUTOBOTS and ultimately, the destruction of Cybertron. This formidable enemy forces an unlikely alliance between the AUTOBOTS, DECEPTICONS, PREDAKING and two new Predacons, who come together in an epic battle to help protect their newly restored planet!
Yesterday we brought you the heads-up information about an upcoming Transformers Prime release from Shout! Factory, with all of our info gleaned from Amazon pre-order listings (see button link below)...including release dates of October 1st for the Blu-ray version ($24.97 SRP) and October 8th for the DVD version ($16.97 SRP). Admittedly, our info was somewhat weak, so now we'll make amends with more in-depth details about what you'll get. First we'll point to a HUB Network press release from March which describes how the 3rd season of this show, subtitled "Beast Hunters," will be the last...and how they will end it with a special telefilm:
    "Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising" (Hub Original Family Movie - Animated)

    The eagerly anticipated conclusion of the CG animated Daytime Emmy Award winning series will make its network television premiere as a Hub Original Family Movie. A 90-minute epilogue to the final season wraps up the series that chronicles the epic battle between the Decepticons and the Autobots in their mission to defend Earth and one day restore their home planet of Cybertron. The Hub Original Family Movie is produced by Hasbro Studios. The final season of "Transformers Prime Beast Hunters" begins on Friday, March 22, 7:30 p.m. ET.
So the October releases from Shout! Factory of "Transformers Prime - Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising" are actually for the "epilogue" telefilm which concludes the show. The studio's online store is also now taking pre-orders for the DVD (1 disc) and Blu-ray/DVD Combo set (2 discs) for this title, and shows both versions shipping on October 8th...and the DVD-only version clocking in at $14.97 SRP (two bucks cheaper than Amazon currently shows). They're also showing the package art displayed below:
