    After the 5 Part Mini Series, when will the next episode be on? My Tivo is not showing any at all next week, but it does show a new GI Joe Renegades?

    Yeah, I asked that question earlier too. I guess it will be a while before the official show starts. :(

    This mini-series is the only real dated thing. We now have to wait for "the return of Transformers Prime, only on The Hub" announcement. Do not worry though, the first series will be packing 26 episodes if my sources are correct

    Given that the official word is that the toy line wont be till Oct 2011, I kind of worry that this may also be the actual premier of the full on series.

    But that's just a shot in the dark theory.

    I would really hope they wouldn't wait until October to show the rest of the series.

    My guess would be maybe January or Febuary for the rest if it doesn't come on in December.

    I wouldn't be surprised.

    My theory on Prime is they wanted to get something out there to get kids excited about Transformers again in the run up to Christmas. They probably make a substantial portion of their profit in these few weeks.

    The show itself may be far from ready.

    Personally I won't mind a wait. I'd rather the toyline was ready when the show goes into regular rotation. I don't want a repeat of the situation with Animated where the show's halfway through before the toys show up.

    Well Animated premiered around Xmas time and started near end of Jan if I recall correctly. It still finished its run just as summer hit. Maybe they'll use Prime as a way to hype up the movie.

    I guess they are waiting to see how popular the mini-series is before continuing with the entire series. To my surprise, I actually liked it! Would've been sweet if G1 was animated like this.
    Glad to hear Primes voice, but I'm not sure I like their Fabio-like faces.

    Well, there's still a chance they might show up within the next 3 episodes.

    Well Hasbro have already said they're committed to it. Though the mini-series may have been in the final stages of production by the time they decided to go ahead with more.

    Depending on how it's received they might give them more money to work with. If they pull a big enough audience, we may see improvements in the visuals.

    I'm more than positive the will start airing it on a date that will coincide with the 3rd film. They went to the effort to have Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron resemble their film counterparts, and make references to the first film in the show, they are obviously trying to kill two birds with one stone by have the two media's advertise one another.

    Yeah, but you're just guessing like everyone else. Just because something seems like it makes sense is no guarantee they'll do it.

    A commercial JUST aired saying new episodes will be airing in February 2011. I was gonna put it up in the news forum but it doesn't seem like it'll get much attention.

    As I posted in another topic about this:

    At least it's not a nine month wait.
