    After reading so many posts on how animated may be canned and how so many toys (that were announced) will never be released I was wondering what other fans of transformers in general felt about getting worked up over something that never happened
    What was you biggest disappointments, or hopes that will/were probably be only dreams.
    I.E The hope the seacon set would have been picked up by a major retailer
    2. The hope of an animated Omega Supreme figure being released
    3. The hope Takara would re-release some of the combiners we never got like LeoKaiser or raiden
    4. Animated arcee
    5 A G1 (has/tak made) Arcee figure
    6. The hope that..... you can finish this one!
    Have at it!
    *note I am writing this with a bad head cold pardon the spelling and nonsense sometimes :p

    Honestly, I think some people are overreacting. I do admit that the figure of Animated does seem a bit grim, but we really haven't gotten anything official about it's potential demise.

    Hmmm...as for what got my hopes and dreams up...Transtech, Titaniums being canceled, and the period of time when Classics was canceled/before we new about Universe replacing it.

    We are getting an Animated Arcee figure.

    Frankly, I've never really gotten my hopes up for any figures, though I kinda wish Wheeljack would get a new figure.

    A few off the top of my head...

    - Alternators Brawn, Ironhide, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Trailbreaker, Red Alert & Hoist

    - Animated Leader Lugnut, Voyager Constructicons, Voyager Thundercracker, G1 colored Voyager Starscream, Voyager Sentinel, Voyager Snarl & Swoop

    - the entire line of War Within Titaniums

    - Masterpiece Ultra Magnus (a proper version - not just a white Prime)

    - Movie 1 Voyager Bonecrusher & Leader Blackout

    - Classics/Universe Voyager Galvatron, Deluxe Brawn, Voyager Dinobots, Leader or Ultra Jetfire, Deluxe Scourge (G1), Voyager Shockwave, Deluxe Soundwave, Deluxe Constructicons (6 new molds - not 5 awful repaints of 3 old molds), Deluxe Combaticons & Aerialbots that could combine with Onslaught & Silverbolt

    But to be fair, I haven't give up hope on all of the missing Classics/Universe characters that I listed since they could still hopefully happen in the future (ie: Shockwave, Soundwave, Brawn, Scourge).

    Leader-class Lugnut, Animated Constructicons and toys of Strika's crew from Animated Season 3.

    This thread is depressing. :(

    I just hate the fact that universe has to go on hiatus. AGAIN. Nothing against ROTF. I loved the first movie and think its f'n fantastic. But I think I'm gonna pass on toys this time. Probably spend money on botcon exclusives and mp grimlock. I anxiously await the remaining universe figures (countdown, darkwing, and the rotf superion and bruticus) but will miss the line until its hopeful return.

    This!!!! But then again we are dealing with Hasbro. They have forgotten how to make a Fully G1 Inspired Combiner or any Combiner for that matter. All we get are repaints and half working combiners.

    I'm still bitter over the 3-inch Titaniums (I could care less for the 6-inchers). I want my little Soundwave, Shockwave, Jetfire, and Megatron goddamnit. Plus the rest of the Decepticons from the first film that didn't get made (Starscream, Barricade, Bonecrusher). Hell even easy repaints like Nemesis Prime, Skywarp, plain white Ultra Magnus, Sunstorm or Cliffjumper didn't get out there.

    I'll see what we get out of Animated and wonder what Classics will come back with (and when). I could get more bitter about Animated than I already am.

    I know I'm not in the majority, but I'd be pretty happy with stunticons and protectobots in the energon style. As long as they had hands :)

    Classics Wheeljack, Blitzwing, proper voyager class Galvatron, Rumble & Frenzy, Acree, Elita One, all fembots, decent deluxe sized Huffer, Pipes, Powerglide, Brawn, Seaspray and Beachcomber and a TIGHT sweet smokin' classic Classics DELUXE OR VOYAGER SHOCKWAVE.

    That's on my Christmas wish list, and I know it's asking too much.
