    After being frustrated with the rumors that the Animated line was to be canceled rather soon, I sent Hasbro an e-mail yesterday, asking about all the rumors we've been hearing lately, and here is their answer:

    So this basically means that Animated will continue throughout 2009 at least, and possibly even longer!

    :lol  Well, that's a relief. I too got tired of the damn rumors about Animated ending. Though if season 3 IS the last season, hopefully the show will end on both a high note and some great toys.

    That's great to know. I'm eagerly awaiting Blackout's toy, along with those of any other Season Three Decepticons.

    Oh yes! :)  We definitely need to fill out the Decepticon ranks :)  The Autobot/Decepticon toy ratio in this line is horrible!

    Actually, we already knew this via the most recent Hasbro Q&A. Still awesome news, however.

    Awesome, now this helps my chances for a Leader Lugnut and maybe even a Blackout! (Because come on, Voyager?)

    Maybe we'll get Team Chaar and Team Rodimus now, who knows?

    Only deluxe and voyager classes are sticking around once the movie hits.

    We know of ten more toys coming in Animated:
    Deluxe: Arcee, Electrostatic Soundwave, Freeway Jazz, Cybertron Mode Ratchet, Rodimus
    Voyager: Golfire Grimlock, Hydrodive Bumblebee, Wingblade Optimus Prime, Blackout. Kickback has said there's one more new Voyager he knows about-- from listening carefully to the WTF@TFW podcast, I think it's Strika, but I'm not sure. Other than that, that's all that he knows about that's coming out.

    Weren't those two canceled?

    Regardless, I hope they come out with Arcee, she'd finally get a toy that was made by Hasbro AND saw retail release! That and it looks awesome, too.

    Oh, and I'd still have a chance to pick up Leader UM if he's still in stock, too.

    Aside from that notice from BBTS, everything since then has pointed toward a minor delay on them.

    The last voyager is probably in the same wave as Bulkhead repaint.

    Why waste time with repaints?! They should bring those out when the show is over!

    Yes! They have new characters to get out and not enough goddamn time to do repaints no one likes. And when they have the chance, with a new mold (Cybertron Ratchet) they make it... into a character we already have.

    However, that is just a niggling annoyance when I consider the news, and am over-freakin-joyed that the line will continue, seeing as how I'm not really feeling the movie line this time around.
