    I suspect this toy line will fail dramaticly !!! As will the TV show. They should have put the money to the Alternators line !!!

    The Alternators line was not profitable enough for Hasbro and since an animated show would not be as feasable with the Alt. line, it was dropped.

    I can foresee the Animated line being very popular with the target audience, you know, those small human beings, we sometimes call children.

    I, for one, cant wait to pick a few of these for my nephews.

    June? Awesome! Gives me plenty of time to save while still being somewhat closer than July/April.

    I suspect the Alternator line will fail dramaticaly... oh wait, it already has.;)

    Ebay:
    movie line needs to be done and bring on animated. still think hasbro messed up somewhere, the animated series will be over before the figures come out. come on.

    plus the way the animated figures are popping up one ebay, most will have them before they are even released. already have 3 decepticons myself.

    I'm ok with June. Right after TFCon will be tough on the wallet, especially since I'll at least be sniffing around for a Fort Max there (ugh, which means I will have to bring tons of cash).

    Any word on the 2pack, as to whether it will be a preview release?

    True enough on both fronts. The figs on ebay are starting to get close to boxed retail cost for loose ones, and if only wave 1 comes out in June we will feel like that set of 6-8 figures is very old by then.

    And money floods the pockets of ppl selling them second hand. And thus I am poor. I loved the alternators line. Hopefully I'll see more of the Animated toys in retail stores than I did Alts...

    Hopefully the two pack will be released at all stores, I'm tired of TRUs skipping on some exclusives and Walmart entirely =(

    Hopefully some retailers start putting up Animated the day before =D I know where I'm spending my day after exams on 21st and 22nd lol
