    So were TFW2005's answers "lost" again?

    Anyhow, no Universe Red Alert. That's not surprising, but now I have to order the Henkei.

    Hmm, movie premiums aren't out of the question. I really wouldn't be surprised to see at least Prime and Bumblebee get a premium treatment again.

    Also I'm siked about the idea that we'll be seeing a Wheeljack figure again sooner or later!

    Awesome that Animated toys will continue throughout 2009. Season 3 has too many cool characters to not get more toys out.

    Season 3 character toys throughout 2009? Sounds good.

    I don't get the Animated non-answers. Is it so hard to just admit the show is ending? And new toys throughout 2009 is vague enough to mean anything.

    We don't even know if it's ending. Hell, Hasbro probably doesn't even know if it's ending. It's really not uncommon to wait for the previous season to finish before greenlighting another.

    Ugh. I wish Hasbro would spill the beans already.

    Not surprised about Premiums.

    Looking at Hasbro as a Business, if making Premium Editions means making more money from figure molds which have already been paid for then by all means they will do it than wasting more money on an entirely new figure and all the costly processes needed to produce it.

    Sign me up for Premium Leader Prime and anything else Premium! I love em!

    TFWiki has a list of all the Q&As up so far:
    Hasbro Q & A - Transformers Wiki

    From a product perspective, the news is that NONE of the following have a planned release, at least this year:
    -Mighty Muggs after Grimlock & Starscream
    -The remaining Universe Robot Heroes (Primal/Jetstorm, Victory Sabre/Desaras, Ricochet/Predaking, etc.)
    -Movie Backtrack, Gunbarrel, and Reverb


    Booooooooo.

    At least some good news about Animated, though.

    Basically I think they quietly said count on remaining retailer exclusives (Darkwind & Countdown) for the Universe line and any others that may be snuck into ROTF packaging (Superion & Bruticus).

    Damn.. getting answers from these guys is like pulling teeth. The Star Wars team will at least drop a few hints.

    hmmmm. given the awkward time frame (really to early to talk about much more than what they showed at toyfair) i'm not surprised at most of the non-answers.

    i'm gonna go ahead and predict Wheeljack for wave 1 of Universe/Classics 3.0 post movie ~ that was an unusually straightforward answer for them :D  EDIT: oh, crap, unless they were talking about an Animated version:banghead: 

    The Drift answer is pretty vague too, but definitely seems to skew more in the "probably happening" than "not happening" vein...

    It's good to know that Season 3 characters will be getting toys. The only question is who, and how many?
