Last week, October 8th to be exact, Shout Factory in collaboration with Hasbro Studios released Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters - Predacons Rising to Blu-ray and DVD!  My son is a huge fan of Transformers!  He picked out a Transformers backpack to carry to school this year.  I knew this Blu-ray Combo pack was going to be a huge hit with my son and I was right!  This story is actually a 90 minute epilogue to the final season.  Sam had a great time watching the battles between the Autobots and the Decepticons and my husband loved watching it with him!  This is a great Blu-ray combo pack for fans of Transformers Prime old and young alike!  Pick it up today!  This would make a wonderful holiday gift!
