Eh, I really doubt they'd just junk the new molds at this point. Arcee especially. Universe coming back isn't that far-fetched either, as it was rumored at one point to go into the "catch-all" line after the Movie line.

EDIT: By the way, seems like this is getting attention over on 4chan.

Default Are they still making making Alternators??

My question is since they cancelling the animated line are they going to make more Alternators?? I know there working on the Alternity Line in Japan. I hope they do make more Alternators, I have almost every Autobot Except Camshaft, and Swerve. I know it might be hard to get the licenses for the different types of cars but there hasnt been a new on since Rodimus.

Make More Alternators!!!

Personally, I think that Takara should import Animated. But there really should be a chart for Hasbro's decline into Takara-grade stoopidness.
I stand by my opinion that these are
But seriously, this is material.

definatly Animated not being carried in Japan has made it easier to cancel.

I really hope we see some season three toys.

The whole line has been stepped on so hard by the ones who created it. So bad, as the people behind Animated really loved Transformers.

Lost it by posting gay porn on that thread?

EDIT EDIT: Thing is, the only reason my store isnt' getting any Animated is because our shelves are packed with 3 of those damned pallets worth of the first 3 waves.

Well, both have been out, so hopefully they count in the 'has shipped' category for you and you may still see them.

Grow up.

Also, linking sites that may expose members to underage porn isn't going to fly in future.

Besides the Hydro-thing Bumblebee, what else was cancelled?
This is strange, with the new Arcee and Soundwave/Ratbat at the Toy Fair 2009. hm. Just the voyagers?

Just the Voyager Bumblebee and the Grimlock repaint are canceled. Apparently, a couple of retail chains are refusing to stock more of any size class, but Arcee and Soundblaster should still come out online and in Toys R Us, supposedly.

I find it hard to believe that the Arcee and Soundwave that were just announced won't be released. It just doesn't make sense to announce it at a big convention, and then cancel the whole shebang a week or so later.

BBTS cancels pre-orders all the time, it doesn't mean the toys never come out. When the Encore minibot set came out I pre-ordered it and then got an email telling me the pre-order was canceled, for no real reason. The toys still came out though....

As far as stores no longer stocking them, I can say this is not true. I just came back from San Diego, and I stopped at all most every single wal*mart and Target from there to central CA, about 7 in total. At all of them they had just stocked the shelves and had tons of Waspinator, Samurai Prowl, and the black repaint Megs. I also saw no silver stickers or anything on any pegs.

Maybe there won't be anymore coming up, but I doubt they will just junk the toys already planned and manufactured. Just my two cents.

What about regular porn?

I kid, I kid.

Probably. How much I'm joking depends on the answer...

Just to further follow up on this, I hit the same Target this morning for my and my daughter's Starbucks run, and the shelves were still marked, but also completely restocked with the newest figures. Lots of Waspinator, Samurai Prowl, Blurr, Elite Bumblebee, Swindle, etc, that weren't there on Tuesday.

Hazarding a guess, and this is just a guess, I think they're prepping for the movie line (which starts the tail end of next month) and are just taking what's already at or arriving at their distributors for now. So, the figures seem to still be coming, but go get 'em.

They didn't have any of Shockwave (though they did have LOTS of the twins), but they did have a ton of Samurai Prowl. If they still have it Monday, when I go next, and you haven't managed it yet, I'll snag you one and you can just repay me with paypal or something.

Well, they've done it before, but the only three lines I know of specific figures were Action Masters, G2 and Beast Machines, and they were considered pretty substantial failures. I had thought that Animated was doing well, though. Certainly I would have figured it had more long-term support than Universe...

Thanks man. I'm actually sure I'll be able to find him soon enough though. I'm actually trying not to get too many packages because I get browbeat by the folks every time I get something in the mail. So unfortunately I've gotta pass.

That's fine. I just thought I would spare you the pain and suffering of eBay scalpers.

Yes, on-topic. I can do that.



No, wait, I failed.

And it was a top joke comparing secretcode to a stray incontinent mutt as well. You're all bastards.
