    If you want to split hairs, they never say the 25th anniversary is in 2010, that's just when they plan to celebrate it :p

    Maybe it's a consolation celebration considering this year they were concentrating on ROTF.

    Long as they keep Universe coming, they can have as many 25th anniversaries as they want.

    I hope that means Universe is officially announced to come back, if I remember correctly they last said they were thinking about it. I really can't wait.

    As I recall, Hasbro extended the 25th Anniversary of G.I. Joe as well over a period of two years so the more TF's the better!

    Not surprising, imo. GI-Joe's Anniversary lasted at least two years, and Hasbro really does need to make up for what 25th Ann. figures we've gotten so far. Not that they were horrible, just that after the hype they created, it was a bit of a disappointment. Let's just hope the same thing doesn't happen this time.

    If we don't see any Universe they better mention some figures like Jazz,Wheeljack,Red Alert, Tracks, and a New Soundwave!

    I don't get the impression that Hasbro has anything big for TFs on the horizon past RotF (and by "big" I mean something like a new TV series) so Universe is likely all they can do once RotF peters out in mid-2010. Universe may be fated to be the perpetual "filler line" but it might end up lasting a couple of years this time especially with the third movie an extra year away.

    DAMN IT, it's at the same time as the Battlestar panel! Argh. I'll try and make the Transformer panel though.

    I don't see it as a disappointment. It just seemed very short.

    And I hope they do keep the 25th celebration going!

    More like they made it to the party on time, had some other matter to attend to and left, saying "I'll come back as soon as this other stuff is taken care of!"

    Though maybe we're talking more about store-exclusive stuff here.
