    With the TF Prime season 2, fall of cybertron, and the Jagex MMO all scheduled for next year, does anyone know when the next piece of Alinged continuity fiction is coming out? I really don't follow the IDW or restated marvel G1 continuities. (the comics are really good, just not my cup of tea) and I'm staving for some TF ficition. So does anyone know if we're getting anymore aligned stuff before x-mas?

    The return of Prime is likely the next thing. Another novel may hit at the same time as FoC if it is being written; something I do not know.

    I think Hasbro said they are going to run with Prime for a while.

    Oh, I know that. I'm just wondering when the next chapter of that fiction (cartoon, comic, game, or whatever) is being released.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they just keep going with what they've got for the Alined Continuity Family for now.

    The Cartoon and game series are ongoing for now. There will most likely get a new writer and make more novels. The MMO game will last awhile. They have toys for TFPrime and are going to give FOC its own line.

    He's not asking if another continuity will be created any time soon. He's not asking when they are going to stop the aligned continuity.

    He wants to know when the next piece of fiction that is attached to the aligned continuity will be released.

    Transformers Prime season 2 is set to start airing early next year. Aside from some toy bios, that will probably be the next bit we know about.

    I think you're right but if what you said was directed at me or a bunch of posts that included me, I actually took it as when the part of the Alined continuity will start. Like Prime cartoon is separate to WFC and that's separate to Exodus.

    all I know is I can't wait. I love the Aligned continuity. It might be my new favorite piece of Transformers lore considering it takes all the lore from past series and rolls it into one.

    Well since the toys are the only one of the four parts(games, books, toys, show) to not officially start the preview wave coming within the next month will be the last new piece of media for a while. After that everything else will just be a continuation of something we've already gotten.

    Prime, WFC and Exodus/Exiles are all in the same continuity, or at least that's what Hasbro would like us to believe. The problem is that there's already discrepancies between those various offerings. And, I anticipate that toy bios will only make that worse.

    And that's my issue.
    I don't mind any so-called "aligned continuities", but it'd be nice if they actually created one instead of some half-assed, last minute after thought attempt at one.

    Any aligned continuity will be kicked out the window as soon as Hasbro's marketing dept deem it necessary.

    They can't even write proper bios. Heck, they can't even come up with proper stats.

    HA Laserbeak has an intellgience of TWO? WTF?

    I believe there is, but I respect those that don't believe there is an aligned continuity. But I'm not going to debate it.
